Local Art Scene: This Friday It's the 2017 Goin' Postal Spring Art Show

"To see we must forget the name of the thing we are looking at." --Claude Monet

The Japanese Footbridge, by Claude Monet
For the record, here is a painting you will not see at the show because it is currently in the Impressionists gallery of the National Museum: Monet's Japanese Footbridge. What you will see at Friday's Goin' Postal Spring Art Show are a wide variety of artists who work in a range of mediums, including painters, photographers, sculptors, scribblers and craftspersons. The weather should be nice, and the afterparty is slated to be great, featuring Israel Malachi, Woodblind, Revolution Jones and a special performance by Laura Velvet and the Bookhouse Boys.

If you're a follower of the local arts scene, Friday will be a perfect appetizer for Saturday's Art for Earth Day Gallery Hop. You'll likely want to put this weekend on your calendars.

Here's another Monet quote, which probably applies to more than art: "It's on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way. So we must dig and delve unceasingly."

My original Dogs of War is slated to be on display Friday.

There's plenty more happening this week in the Twin Ports. Be sure to check your local listings. ;-)
