Tonight’s activity seems tailor-made for me – a mini gallery tour in the Pearl District, complete with fancy food and local wines!
Along the way we stop at Tanner Springs Park, a fabulous urban oasis.
Then it is off to the galleries in search of food and beverages. (And art.)
My favorite stops:
Bullseye Gallery, featuring a stunning exhibit of glass by Jeffery Sarmiento and sushi rolls.

The Museum of Contemporary Craft with a great Manuf®actured exhibit featuring everyday objects that have been transformed into art in unexpected and intriguing ways.
I’m particularly fond of the work of Livia Marin, one piece of which is made up of 2214 different sculpted lipsticks;
Livia Marin – Ficciones de un uso – Museum of Contemporary Craft
the work of Cat Chow, which consists of fabulous clothing made of nothing but zippers;

and that of Harriet Estel Berman, who makes elaborate teacups and other forms out of pieces of old metal dollhouses.

I’ve had the great treat of seeing the Natzlers’ work a few times in the past and I’m pleased to be able to enjoy these elegant pieces once again.
Waterstone Gallery is showing watercolors by Scott C Johnson. His work is unbelievably wistful and dreamy.

Amazingly, these detailed sculptures are created from epoxy, resin, paper, wood, watercolor, and varnish!
