from the Red Deer Advocate:
“Art doesn’t have to be serious — so how about catching some stand-up comedy or wacky printmaking at February’s First Friday gallery openings in Red Deer?
Described as a combination of historical printmaking, pop culture “and a little bit of insanity,” the Making a Good First Impression exhibit is on at the Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery. This unusual show of original art prints by Patrick Bulas and Jordan Schwab is on until March 19. It will have a 5 to 8 p.m. First Friday reception.
Anyone headed to the Red Deer Public Library for Renu Mathew’s mixed-media exhibit, Selfies, can also see the Heritage Lanes Comedy Troupe perform. Art lovers can ‘get their giggle on’ in the Snell Auditorium, connected to the Kiwanis Gallery, from 6 to 8 p.m.
The free show will be held at a reception for Mathew’s exhibit, which runs in the downstairs gallery operated by the Red Deer Arts Council until Feb. 19.
Red Deer artist Erin Boake’s display of drawings and watercolours, Symbiosis, is at the white gallery on the main floor of Sunworks, on Ross Street. It runs from Feb. 3 to April 29, but the First Friday reception will be from 6 to 8 p.m.
Red Deer College visual arts faculty and staff will exhibit their mixed-media works in Into the Woods, at the Welikoklad Event Centre from Feb. 3-28. The First Friday reception will be from 7 to 9 p.m.”
