Today is KU's first open model session of the fall semester. It's from 11:00 until 2:00 in room 405 of Art and Design. Bring drawing supplies. It's free, and all levels are welcome.
We didn't make many venues for last night's Final Fridays (we ducked out of the heat and into a cold drink at the Tap Room). However, we liked what we saw.
We talked with members of the Lawrence Public Library who were at 9th and Massachusetts giving away copies of"The Worst Hard Time" for the Read Across Lawrence project.
We were impressed by Molly Murphy's new paintings at The Pig. Check out her small, whimsical works if you are Downtown.

We appreciated the enthusiasm of the Summit Gym for hosting a nice Final Friday presentation.

Wonder Fair has printmaking from Pitttsburgh's Tugboat Studios. Tugboat is a cool independent print shop which creates affordable art and run by Paul Roden and Valerie Lueth. We liked the multi-colored prints including a map of the United States. Check out their website at: http://www.tugboatprintshop.com/
