Walking in Argenta

Posted By on Fri, Aug 20, 2010 at 1:25 PM


Highpoints in Argenta's ArtWalk tonight: The dedication of the art park and its sculpture by Kevin Kresse, painting demonstrations, a birthday anniversary, watermelon mojitos and a new venue — lots of reasons to brave the heat.

At 6 p.m., an hour in to the monthly event, the CityGrove Townhome Art Park at Maple and Fifth will be dedicated. Kresse's Mother Earth and Father Moon sculptures bookend this park next to the residential development.

In the 700 block of Main, Ketz Gallery (705) will celebrate its first year in business with "Summertime Blues," a show and sale (portion of proceeds to KABF blues programming) by John Kushmaul, Rene Hein, Michael Lindas and others. There will be libations there and at Argenta Bead Company next door, which will offer mojitos and an ICE resin demonstration at 6:30 p.m. Join in for $3 and make a resin cross.

In the 500 block, Marlene Gremillion will give a watercolor demonstration in front of the Argenta branch of the Laman Library (506).

A block south, the Thea Foundation (401 Main) will feature the exhibit "Classroom to Canvas," work by art teachers Jenny Delgado (her work above), Lori Kirchner, Erica Jewell and Ashley Robinson. Devin Matthews will perform on classical guitar between 6 and 7:30 p.m. On Thea's second floor (entrance on Fourth Street), Robin Steves, Joel Boyd, Catherine Burton and Morgan Coven will have their studios open. Greg Thompson (429 Main) continues its exhibit of work by Roger Carlisle, "Light in the Landscape." One could hope the gallery owners' new baby would be on exhibit as well, at least for a little while.

There will also be the artists and crafters of "A Gathering of Artists," independents displaying their work in tents up and down Main.
