#99: Circa Arts Gallery

I'm excited for today, and I think you should be too. It's First Friday's in South Bend and as such there is a ton of stuff happening. My personal itinerary for tonight includes the Friends of the St. Joe County Library booksale from 4-8, the "special tastings" at Fiddler's Hearth, a stop at Barnaby's for $6.50 pitchers, Marigold's for their "Gifts of Green" houseplant feature, and Junk Evolution where "The Bergamot" (which we have featured earlier) will be playing all evening. More information about these and all of the other First Friday events can be found here. Be forewarned, it's an exhausting, albeit very fun, list.

However, after visiting Junk Evolution, I'm also going to pop-in to their next-door neighbor, the Circa Arts Gallery. Circa Arts is just one in a number of great South Bend art galleries (we've previously mentioned ArtPost and there are many to come), and it has been open since 2000 featuring, in their words, "local artists and items in the Arts and Crafts style." They focus strongly on antiques and currently display the work of 17 local artists. Tonight, they are adding an 18th artist, Kevin Gross, and his work with "Fractal Shapes." During the First Friday hours (from 5-9), Circa Arts will be highlighting his work described as "a form of computer generated art containing complex, repetitive, mathematically-based shapes and patterns that resemble those found in nature." That description was enough to entice me to stop by tonight, and I think you should too.
