Scrounging For Art

Gallery 360 will awaken from its summer slumber in September with a showing titled "Artists Scrounging."  To that end, we are looking for artwork made recently using found, recycled and re-purposed materials. That covers a lot of ground and will hopefully spark imaginations.

The dates will be September 20 thru November 1st.  We'll take submissions up to 9/18, but would like to receive them ASAP.  Call or text Jay at (501) 993-0012 or email audiolingo@gmail.com.

"Art and Function of Turned Wood" Opens Friday



Wood is front and center at Gallery 360 in April and May.  Wood turned on lathes by eight diverse craftsmen from two area woodturning clubs.  Wood of all sorts turned into hollow forms, bowls, platters, and just about anything else eight brains, sixteen hands, a few lathes and some chisels can carve.

Join us Friday evening from 6 til 10 as we open 'Turnings: The Art and Function of Turned Wood,' featuring works by Vernon Oberle, John Wilkins, Ken Glasscock, Charles Kokes, Gene Sperling, Bob Revell, Tim Hogan and Dick Easter. It's 2nd Friday Art Night downtown, so put us on your itinerary.

PS - We have a last minute addition to the roster of woodworkers: Leslie Dykes.

Thanks to everyone who came out last night to hear Jessica Otto's poetry, and special thanks to Jess for the wonderful reading. Our friend S.J. Tucker streamed the event on her USTREAM channel, which is archived for the time being here.   Things get underway at about 21:30.  Jess breaks around 47:30, then returns about 1:18:00.
