If you feel like something artistic, diverse and social (and some fresh air) this Friday evening, then look no further. The highlight of this evening should be the Water Street Project Grand Opening, at 8pm, sponsored by Honest Tea, showcasing the core collaborators of this project “the Artists.” The Water Street Project includes murals and installations by artists Kelly Towles, Brandon Hill, James Kerns, Dafna Steinberg, Kate Campagna, Maggie O’Neill, James Meade, Paul Mericle, Billy Mode, Gaia, Gregg Deal, Jacqueline Levine, Drew Storm Graham, Tariq Tucker, and Hamilton Riley . Evening Programming will include special music performances by Typefighter, Lightfoot, Cold Fronts, and Ugly Purple Sweater. This event is free
We will meet up in Canal Square where the Parish Gallery is one of the most interesting and friendliest galleries in the city. They anchor this picturesque hideaway in front of the Sea Catch Restaurant. Also there is the estimable Winter Palace Studio (Victor and Natasha are amazing artists.) The wild and occasionally naked MOCA DC gallery (and our friend Dave) and the longtime tenant Alla Rogers Gallery complete the quartet.
Parish will be showing the two-person exhibition titled “Two Views/One Vision: The Paintings of Richmond Jones and Christine Osada Jones.“ The galleries are open from 6-8. We'll decide at around 7:45 whether we'd like to get something to eat or head straight to the Water Street Project. (Maybe we'll just grab some pizza at the Harbor and sit outside.) As always when we visit galleries, please be respectful to the talented artists and to the incredibly benevolent gallery owners who contribute greatly to the nice community we share.
