One of the nice things about the growing popularity of the Crossroads district, and First Fridays, is that it is it has caused the arts scene to branch into other parts of the city. One of the areas that has benefitted has been the Midtown/Troost area -- with several artists and galleries springing up in the area.
One such gallery is the Faso Gallery at 3120 Troost. They have taken a beautiful building, along one of the best blocks of Troost, and turned it into a great space for viewing art. This Friday night, April 17, starting at 7:00, the Gallery is going to be open for an art showing for two local artists. One of the artists is Clifford Doyle -- who has a great style of oils for both landscapes and architecture. Unlike a lot of the art that you see on First Fridays, Doyle's work is something that I could see actually hanging in my home.
So come on out on Friday night -- see some great art. Support a couple of local artists and a local art gallery. Enjoy an emerging stretch of Troost. Check out our new powerlines. And maybe have a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants either at Martini Corner or down at the 18th & Vine District. It'll be a great art showing with a great artists (and a heck of a nice guy). It's great local art -- no Crossroads required.
