Well, last Friday was the beginning of Free Art Friday. I'm super excited about this! What a fun way of raising awareness of local art, encouraging more people to get involved and make art, and exploring the local neighborhoods, hopefully by walking. Anyways, the gist of how it works is that you follow FAFATL on Twitter or Facebook and bright and early on Friday morning hints will be posted as to locations of where free art is hung! Finders keepers! You figure out where it is first and come armed to dismember it from it's hanging place.. and it's yours! Get ready to make and take! AND if you are interested in being a FAFATL artist, contact them via Facebook! Here's the first freebie from last week.. awesome right? Kenn TwoFour killed it!
Be sure to hit up Harrison Keys' solo show, 'Pressure Luck', at Get This Gallery sponsored by PBR!
"The show will be comprised of mixed media drawings rendered in Keys’ signature illustrative style. This is Harrison’s second solo exhibition with the gallery and his first in the 11th St. / Midtown-West location.
Harrison Keys’ persona is imaginative, introspective, mysterious, and secretive. A deft draftsman in his own right, the drawings evoke the innocent coyness of classic children’s book illustrations. He is also a wordsmith, and the text that accompanies his drawings is injected with cryptic adult humor and wordplay. His drawings are nothing short of seductive, as the images have a pop surrealist sentiment that is largely playful, and at times cynical."
