Bike Race, Indie Craft & April Flowers
It's one on my favorite weekends in Athens, Georgia. Tonight is the big pro-cycling race, The Twilight Criterium! People will be gathered by the thousands in our vibrant downtown, being merry and feeling the wind from a swoosh of cyclists going by as the racers circle our downtown blocks the distance of 80K. I think that is nearly 80 laps! The big race begins at 9p.m.
The other thing happening is The Athens Indie Craftstraveganzaa spring market! This bi-yearly market of hand-made wares is in its 5th year and it is sure to be a good one. With nearly 40 vendors, it is an intimately-scaled market with lots of variety. Check out booths like this one: Rachel Pepper's KiNFLY Design.
And lastly, tomorrow, I will be installing a show of new paintings at one of my favorite places to get a really nice meal, Heirloom Cafe and Market. The show is titled: "April Flowers." You can expect to see vibrantly filled canvases of flowers and a few, more abstract surprises. The show will be up through May 26th.
Oh, and, my website is now updated! It is re-organized for (hopefully) easier navigation and tighter presentation of my different series of works. It includes a number of new recent paintings and drawings, such as watercolors, like this one:
