Join us in June for a dive into the world of the liquid acrylic pours!
We have lots of events around this month’s exhibit. On the 1st Friday June 5, we had a Live Virtual First Friday Tour of the gallery with Cas and a demonstration of a “dirty pour” with Linda. If you missed it, Click here to view. This was our first Live Video and we think it was a success! This is an ongoing event and many other art venues are participating. Please support other local art venues by participating in the Virtual First Fridays by watching the community calendar on Peak Radar.
You can also see all the artwork in the exhibit on our website at https://www.academyframesco.com/monthly-exhibition3rd-friday-reception
For our 3rd Friday Reception, June 19, 4-8 p.m., we are having our Parking Lot Art Party with individualized tours of the gallery and we are going to do these all summer on 3rd Fridays! We still have to maintain social distancing and limit the number of people in the gallery at one time so we will have artists, art and art demos in the parking lot. Linda will be demonstrating more pours, Andre Eddens will be spray painting and we have a number of artists setting up booths including Patsy Kroeckel, Jeff Mallo, Elin Skov Vaeth and Larry McGough.
And since we missed our May Military Appreciation show, Linda Case will have a booth set up to honor our military customers. As part of her and our appreciation, if customers with a military I.D. make a purchase in the gallery (art or framing) they will receive a free Book!
