Chase Davis and Janelle Gordon are promoting something brilliant and, well, colorful, in August. And somehow they are prying open the NEST to do it.
It’s called the Spectrum of Colors Art Exhibit. Each week is a different exhibit keyed to a different color, in a different location.
First up, Eileen Walsh is lending her space at the Gallery at Black Rock for the “Gray Show,” will be focused on written pieces and art showcasing “the power of words.” Friday, Aug 6, 6-9 p.m.
The we go black at the City Hall Annex. Patrons are asked to wear black. Thursday, Aug. 12, 6-9 p.m.
The third show, a week later, is a white theme, but you’re asked to think dirty. It’s at the NEST (which I thought was closed for good — what can this mean?). This will be the adult show with fashions and art emphasizing erotica, sensuality and nudity. Thursday, Aug. 20, 6-9 p.m.
The fourth show is for red, at Tiago’s, and the fifth for green, on McLevy Green, will follow and details will be announced later.
