With spring comes the Fourth Friday Art Jam. It is a free “happening” on the sidewalks & in the shops downtown. You will find art and music in galleries and out on the street. Shops are open late and many have free refreshments.
One notable part of this Fourth Friday (April 26) is at the West Street Art Center (301 West St.). A two-person exhibition titled “Singularities” featuring artworks by Leticia R. Bajuyo and Richard W. James will have a closing reception and gallery talk. The reception is 6-9pm and the talk will begin at 7:30pm.
This exhibition features recent ceramic sculptures by Richard James and recent graphite drawings by Leticia Bajuyo. Also on exhibit are site-specific installations by each artist as they responded to the unique space and structure of the West Street Art Center’s building.
These large, fun installations will draw you in off the street. They are great pieces for children to view, and they are in an amazing space at the West Street Art Center. If you haven’t been in this building, I recommend visiting to see the great space for new art in our community.
There are sure to be many other art events happening all over downtown. I am sure my family and I will be at the West Street Art Center and out walking the sidewalks this Friday, enjoying the weather and culture out on display.
