March 2010 Final Friday

Posted on March 28, 2010 by under Things to Do.    

Brian decided he needed a mental health day so he took a vacation day on Friday. He had scheduled it the week before. When I found out how nice it would be that day, I went ahead and scheduled four hours of vacation on Friday afternoon also. It just so happened that Innovative Bodywork is doing a special on couples massages so I went ahead and scheduled one for us. After all of the stress of moving and work, we both really needed it.

After spending a couple of hours at Innovative for our massage and exfoliation, we met up with Jennifer Teves and her friends at Adrian’s. Food wasn’t as good as I remembered, but it was nice seeing Jen Teves. It’d been a while since we’d seen her.

Our next stop was Tangent Lab in Old Town. Brian’s friend Chris, who is an artist, helped with setting up the Scion Art Tour. It sounded really cool and the weather was favorable so we decided to check it out.

We’re really privileged to have tour come through Wichita because it features some really talented artists. Among them Dust La Rock, Eric Nakamura, Saelee Oh, French, Josh Graham, Monihan Monihan, Mark Mothersbaugh, PMKFA, Sage Vaughn and Ill-Studio. Wichita was the third of five stops: Los Angeles, CA; Austin, TX; Wichita, KS; Minneapolis, MN; and Brooklyn, NY.

Another neat thing about the Scion exhibit was all the swag they were giving away. Brian and I both got free shirts, socks (they were men’s socks so Brian got both of them), head phones (Brian’s were tan and mine were pink), Rod Azlan CDs, Scion booklet etc. You all know how much I love free stuff. LOL.

Our next stop was Shopkeepers Gallery, located above Hewitt’s Antiques and Splendid Stuff. Chris’ friend Mark Walker is curator there. The gallery is currently hosting the Friends University Photography Show featuring the works of Mandee Mabe, Amanda Klammer, Jaclyn Cage, Sara McVay and Andrew Becker.

I had no idea that there was an art gallery above Hewitt’s. I honestly wouldn’t have known about it if it weren’t for Chris. After browsing the works of the talented Friends University students, we headed to the Art of Healing to check out Lee Shiney‘s Old News exhibit. Lee Shiney is another friend of Chris’ and an enormously talented artist. Lee is one of three artists who participated in the interACTIVE exhibit at the Wichita Art Museum. His art has been featured in many exhibits.

Here’s a photo of me with Lee Shiney.

While at the Art of Healing, we got to check out the 3,800 square foot loft above the commercial space. It’s quite impressive despite having only one bedroom. This bedroom is probably the largest bedroom I’d ever been in.

I would have taken more pictures, but my phone kept acting up. We had a really great time at Final Friday (even though we only made three stops). I can’t wait to attend the next one so that we can check out more of the participating galleries.
