Photogs Rally for October ArtHop
The Arthop juggernaut continues to explode in October with new works, new artists, and new spots.
Start the night off in the epicenter of the city, at City Hall. Rebecca Caraveo may be best knwn for her rockabilly alter ego Cattie Ness, but Rebecca the photog has assembled a romantic and soulful collection of hand-colored photographs of the City of Light. "Beautiful Paris" showcases her talent, which serves as the backbone for a community education class she teaches called "Your First Trip to Paris," a witty guide for first time travelers.
From City Hall pick up a caffeine fix at Koffeheads where John Dahlberg will show his photography from Yosemite and Fresno. Dahlberg, a dispatcher for the Fresno area Fire Deptment, will be joined by the music of One Buck Band. Or visit Kern Street Coffee, open once again for ArtHop after a long hiatus. Owner John Baker and crew will feature "Pink Art" by Cynthia Manuszak and James Babula, plus live jazz by Little Blue Planet and Chilean food.
Once you've been fortified, skip over to Broadway Studios for a visual trip south, to Nicaragua. Photography by Kyle Schmidt takes you to Central America, and the rest of the Broadway crew shows new work.
Downtown stalwarts Fig Tree and Gallery 25 keep the Van Ness and Mono hub going with new exhibits. Fig Tree will show "Encaustic Paintings" by iris Duarte, while Gallery 25 will show member Carol Hartman's large screen interactive installations and Joy Johnson's "Marking Time" and "Birthing a New Dream."
Round out the evening at Club Jinnaka, where artist/developer/urban pioneer Reza Assemi will have his first solo show this year.
