An ever increasing local art tradition spreading throughout towns across the country is the "First Friday Gallery Walk." In a word: on the first Friday evening of each month, art galleries hold opening receptions of their newest exhibits (or just keep their doors open later into the evening). With a number of galleries collectively doing this, it increases the general public turnout as people get to take in a number of exhibits in one fell swoop. Migration was a regular participant and always got sizeable crowds at its First Friday receptions.
Without actually exhibiting, I thought I would bring to you a First Friday reception here at artPark a la the web.
Recently, Arturo Mallmann (a Migration and personal favorite artist) opened a show of his newest paintings at Art Cube Gallery in Laguna Beach, California. The show is called "Contemplation" (those familiar with Arturo's meditative work can appreciate the title). Luckily for us, the opening reception was beautifully videoed by Andrew J. Whittaker. I hope you enjoy it.
Arturo also has an opening tomorrow night in New Orleans at Gallery Bienvenu. Here is a nicely done promo for it.
