[image-1]The times they are a changin’. It seems like just last year we were enjoying dinner at Scarecrow. Or was it Feathertop? Maybe we’re just confusing those spots with Wise Buck. The trifecta of restaurants at 23 Ann St. were interesting, but we think the hard-to-find location was the death knell for their success.
Enter: Scarecrow Event Gallery.
The gallery, which is located next to South Seas Tiki Lounge (we know, it’s confusing), is open Wed.-Fri. evenings, 6-8 p.m., where attendees can snag happy hour specials at the bar. Scarecrow Event Gallery’s inaugural exhibit, British Print Invasion, features 20th century British linocuts.
Linocuts are images cut into pieces of linoleum, inked, and applied to paper. The linocuts in this exhibit hail from Grosvenor School of Modern Art students, Sybil Andrews, Cyril Power, and Lill Tschudi, who learned the technique in the 1920s under the tutelage of Claude Flight. Considered modern for their time, these prints portray dynamic movement and, as gallery curator Michele Seekings says, “their themes translate seamlessly into today’s world.”
The exhibit will be open now through January 31st.
