Open Studios, ArtHaus, ArtZone...

What am I doing this weekend? I am so glad you asked. There is a ton of art to see, places to go, people to meet.

Last week, Steve and Eric, the owners of ArtZone 461 graciously invited me to a reception for their new exhibit featuring Heidi McDowell and Jon McNeal. A husband-wife team, they have been painting and photographing the American west for almost 20 years. Their work is a tribute to open spaces, life on the road, sometimes with eerie overtones of nostalgia for a world that is fast disappearing.

Other weekend picks are the artists at Arc Gallery, ArtHaus and whoever you want to see. Drop by the ArtSpan offices and pick up a catalogue.
