August Art Fun in the Alley

Last Thursday evening, Arts in the Alley was hopping with visitors for our "First Thursday" gallery openings. In the Arts Initiative space, a happy crowd browsed around viewing new works by Spencer Mustine and Nick Stull (above). Their show, HumanScapes: A Sense of Place, continues through September. Both artists, says curator Kate Dowell, use abstraction to take the figure beyond simple representation, and both keep use of the figure engaging by reinterpreting a sense of place.


Throughout the evening, gallery-goers and passers-by enjoyed the artwork and live music in the alley. The Shoebox gallery hosted an opening reception for its new show, the ARTillery Invitational, with works by Ron Abram, Aby Algueseva, Waylon Bigsby, Allison Buenger, Molly Burke, Sarah Fairchild, Brittany Ference, Giovani, Joey Monsoon, Beth Nash, Tristan Seeger, Kristin Patton and Elaine Quave. And the Ohio Art League gallery (below) opened It's Complicated, with works by Clare Fox and Tara Polansky.

Surprise visitors to the alley were two British chaps straight out of the 1800s (below). Liam Cronin (left) and Dwayne Blackaller are stars of the comedy Shipwrecked, a play presented by Whistling in the Dark Theatre Company and now playing through Sunday at The Green Room in the alley.
