Cure gray, cold-weather blahs with bright colors, bright women and convenient gallery hopping Friday during Artbeat on Short Vine. POPP=D ART presents the minimalist, hard-edge style of Tim Gold of Independence, Ky., who draws inspiration from black-and-white photos but paints with bold hues.
Then dash across to 71 Gallery for a helping of G.L.O.P. (Great Ladies of Painting). Locals Arynn Blazer and Emily Brandehoff and Southerners Deona Fish, Misty Lindsey and Katherine Michael are the aforementioned ladies. Their folk/outsider works featuring animals, pop culture icons and society’s misfits will melt your heart, if not winter’s ice.
