A few changes to the schedule are being considered and a big event is in the works for the entire month of May. Because of the incredibly strong response that we have received regarding our current feature, The Rising Son, we will be extending the dates into April, giving those of you who have since missed out to come and enjoy this time defying exhibtion.
As was mentioned above, May is shaping up to be an exciting month at The Andrews Gallery. In a Bacchic celebration of the days getting longer and the weather getting warmer, we plan to put on a series of free events open to the public with erruptions of music, art, dance, and poetry. These events will be loosely centered around Matt Curreri and The Exfriends, a musical ensemble that has been dubbed "one of San Diego's best indie bands" by the San Diego Union Tribune (2008). Matt has played at the gallery before, and we are excited at the opportunity to showcase some new projects of his in a series of shows. In conjunction with these performances, each night will have something new in store for the community to enjoy and partake in. The Exfriends will share the stage with other local musical acts. We will showcase San Diego local painter Floyd Elmore as a new feature. We will premier a brand new poetry series with readings from a diverse selection of San Diego County poets. We will fuse art and music in highlighting the work of San Diego local Owen Burke, who's hand crafted instruments display stunning levels of artistry, craftmanship, and sound. We will do these things and much more, with the same ol' good cheer and fun times that have come to define our events.
The details are being worked out as we speak, and we will post a full schedule with all of the specifics very soon. As always at The Andrews Gallery, these events will be free and open to the public. The purpose of these events is simple: to encourage and promote the arts in our community, and to provide a venue for anyone and everyone to engage with eachother in an environment of stimulation and FUN. If you are interested in participating or have ideas, LET US KNOW.
