Final Friday http://kmuw.org en Mechanical Sculptures In An Unusual Gallery http://kmuw.org/post/mechanical-sculptures-unusual-gallery <p></p><p>On Commerce Street, you can find a number of art galleries, but there is one that I would even hesitate to call a “gallery.” It’s really a restoration workshop with a space for art up front.</p><p>The garage-slash-art space seems an unlikely pairing, but every time I walk into <a href="http://goawaygarage.blogspot.com/">Go Away Garage</a>, I’m impressed by either the quality of craftsmanship in the art or the quality of the presentation. Last Final Friday, I was impressed by both.</p> Wed, 02 Apr 2014 10:00:00 +0000 Lindsey Herkommer DeVries 32375 at http://kmuw.org Mechanical Sculptures In An Unusual Gallery Art: It's (Black) Final Friday! http://kmuw.org/post/art-its-black-final-friday <p>The Christmas décor in grocery stores and shopping centers gets trotted out earlier and earlier every year. Now, Christmas decorations replace the Halloween costumes and treats. This leap from skeletons to silver bells means that Thanksgiving is left to us to keep traditions with family and friends alive.</p><p>For many, part of Thanksgiving tradition is the post-turkey shopping on Black Friday. This year, I propose Black <em>Final</em> Friday – a local art extravaganza that the whole family can enjoy – as part and parcel to the finest of Thanksgiving traditions.</p> Wed, 27 Nov 2013 11:00:00 +0000 Lindsey Herkommer DeVries 26831 at http://kmuw.org Art: It's (Black) Final Friday!

Brookover. </em>The show is an eclectic collection of intimate drawings small enough to be doodles-- but they are so highly rendered, it would be a shame to call them that.</p><p> Wed, 28 Nov 2012 11:00:00 +0000 Lindsey Herkommer DeVries 9068 at http://kmuw.org Art Review: The Function Of Form Art Review: October Final Friday http://kmuw.org/post/art-review-october-final-friday <p></p> Wed, 17 Oct 2012 15:47:31 +0000 Lindsey Herkommer DeVries 7178 at http://kmuw.org Art Review: October Final Friday Art Review: Fondle, Please http://kmuw.org/post/art-review-fondle-please <p>This Final Friday, the Wichita State University Sculpture Guild will be hosting their annual art exhibition at the Diver’s Studio on South Commerce. Playfully titled “Fondle, Please,” this show encourages visitors to not only touch the art, but it requires people to physically interact with the works in order to fully experience the show. While the show maintains a lighthearted air, the Sculpture Guild’s theme is determined to transform passive viewers into active participants.</p> Wed, 18 Apr 2012 13:54:28 +0000 Lindsey Herkommer DeVries 5938 at http://kmuw.org
