Well, the weather outside is nothing close to frightful — unless, of course, you prefer your Decembers chilly and Christmas-like — so there’s not much excuse for missing the Art Walk tonight. Heck, you can probably even wear that sundress you put away when it was actually cold for a while.
At the Atelier Gallery on King Street, painter Kirsten Moran is showing works that explore women’s and girls’ history. Her work has elements of both the abstract and the figurative, and the show is fittingly called Evocation.
A bit further north on King Street, the Art Mecca is hosting the Holiday Shop and Stroll, which will feature a trunk show by jewelry artists and gallery curators Kelly Wenner Grossman and Mackenzie King.
[image-2]Down in the French Quarter, Robert Lange Studios is opening American Parables by Joshua Flint, a series of paintings that explore images of Americana.
Ella Walton Richardson Gallery is opening a dual exhibit of the work of two Russian artists, Aleksander and Lyuba Titovets. Both painters paint in the traditional Russian style, Richardson says, with strong, bold brushwork and colors.
Anglin Smith Fine Art is showcasing the work of painter Jennifer Smith Rogers, the daughter of owner Betty Anglin Smith. Rogers paints Lowcountry land- and streetscapes, and her work will be on view until Dec. 20.
Also opening tonight is a show of oil paintings by Jennie Summerall at the Corrigan Gallery. And tomorrow, if you haven’t already had your share of art from the Art Walk, stop by the George Gallery in Cannonborough-Elliotborough for an afternoon with abstract artist Paul Yanko — he’ll discuss his process and motivations in a talk called “Fractions of a Square.”
