Art Show at the Brewery   1 comment

Friday evening, February 20, 2015, I accepted an invitation from my artist friend Gilead to come to an art show at a local Phoenix brewery.  I did not go for the booze, but just to see my friend and admire whatever art might be present.  I found the place at 30th Street and Washington and went inside, where I talked to my friend, and chatted with other artists and craftsmen.  I stayed about an hour, and tried to take at least once picture of everything worth seeing.

The musician thinks everyone came to listen to him. He wasn't bad, but nobody came to listen to him.

Breweries seem to be about big aluminum tanks. Who knew?

The cafe/pub side of the brewery. It's a small room, smaller than my  living room at home.

Best in show--imho--Of men, maids, and monsters.

Best in show–imho. It took me a day to get it. This is a picture of Fox and Mulder in an alien encounter of the worst kind.

 

The pictures are displayed in the order in which I took them. After a little less than an hour of walking around looking at things and talking to artists, I took my leave.

If you’ve ever gone to an art show that was a bit underwhelming, why not leave a comment?
