“Art-Kid-Tecture Art Show—A Walk Through the Village”
Lake Country Fine Arts School and Gallery
112 W. Capitol Drive, Hartland
Art-Kid-Tecture. It’s like architecture. But with art...and kids. Children from Hartland Fine Arts Leadership Academy will be displaying their works at Lake County Fine Arts School and Gallery in Downtown Hartland. The young Frank Lloyd Wrights, Santiago Calatravas and Ludwig Mies van der Rohes have crafted detailed clay buildings, which will be displayed in a village scene. An opening reception, Friday, May 16 from 6-8 p.m., kicks off the show, which closes a week later.
10th Street Gallery
628 N. 10th St.
There are benefits to situating an art gallery in the lobby of a theater. The possibilities of synergy are endless. Currently, 10th Street Gallery has coupled a solo exhibition by local artist Melissa Musante, entitled “Patination,” with In Tandem Theatre’s presentation of 1959 Pink Thunderbird, an off-Broadway hit comedy set in rural 1970s Texas. “Patination” references the process of film growing on metal due to age and oxidation. Musante’s textural paintings explore the removal of this film from our lives to reveal the wealth of experience beneath. The closing reception for “Patination” is Sunday, May 18 from 4:30-7:30 p.m.
