I just completed my second consecutive night in the sweaty, 97-degree man cave, gathering and packing my inventory for Friday night. Five local artists will be displaying and selling art out of the Piccolo Mondo Restaurant in north Arlington Friday from 5:30-11:30. This will be the first time I have set up inside an elegant restaurant and bar. The Friday night clientele has been described as a good audience for an art show, so I guess we are about to find out. At any rate, it will be nice to hang out with my friends in a lovely setting. We will set up our exhibits at 3:00 and the establishment opens for dinner at 5:30. We have been told that reservations are the wise choice for a Friday night, but walk-ins are accommodated as well. Our display area is one of the dining rooms clearly visible from the waiting and bar area. The French doors will all be opened, and the art work will be visible to anyone entering the establishment. I’m getting excited as the time nears.
Tomorrow will end my summer school for the week–it’s so nice not to teach on Fridays. I had hoped to paint tonight, but ran out of time. The hour is getting late and 6:00 will come all-too-quickly for me, again. But I have every hope of painting tomorrow after school, as the weekend officially begins.
For any of you in the area, I would love to see you Friday evening. For all the rest of you, I pledge to be painting and blogging again tomorrow. Thanks for reading. I’m not sure if this virtual tour of the restaurant is going to work, but here is the link:
