It’s time for another ArtWalk photo essay. We had near-perfect weather yesterday evening, and a wonderful turnout for all the galleries. On the right you see Robert Royce, K.D. Lett and Jesse Tidquist preparing for an evening that melded art and dance at The Charleston Ballet.
Other cool openings last night included Ian Bode’s “The Passenger” arriving at Romano Associates, Allied Artists at The Purple Moon, Emily Roles and Sue Chase’s “Friends Among the Hills” at Art Emporium and White Oak Photography and Deborah Herndon at The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation.
Good News Mountaineer Garage Gallery featured art from students at Mountaineer Montessori School at last night’s ArtWalk.The fourth, fifth and six grade art students at Mountaineer Montessori School have spent the last two months creating woodblock prints, drawings, mosaics, paintings and sculpture depicting the tragic deaths of miners at the historic Hawks Nest Tunnel. Despite the sick jokes that popped into my head
about this being “children’s depictions of death,” this was actually a very powerful exhibit, and it showed off some some amazing young talent.
There were also some “Wild and Crazy” folks accompanying Einstein around ArtWalk last night promoting the “Picasso at the Lapine Agile” scavanger hunt, which was shining the spotlight on Charleston Stage Company’s upcoming production of the Steve Martin play. “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” opens May 10 at the WVSU Capitol Center Theater.
Enough with the words. Here are the pictures…

With that, we wrap up this month’s ArtWalk photo essay. We would also like to announce that we are taking a week off from RFC. Your PopCulteer has been battling a cold/allergy attack and a huge magazine assignment, so it just seemed prudent to delay this Week’s show. Our special look at the work of Liquid Canvas will now be episode 158. Check PopCult regularly for more details and our other regular features.
