The new school year has kicked off and so has this season's art year!
In downtown Columbia SC on Main St. every First Thursday, is an
event where many stores, restaurants, museums and other businesses
stay open and celebrate the arts. Everything from visual arts to live
music by area musicians, poetry readings, dance, entertainment of
all kinds abounds and every First Thursday is different.
As a visual artist myself, I do try to attend these First Thursday events
when I can. I did go tonight and saw lots of great art, lots of friends
and heard lots of music. I was really thrilled about the show at Tapps
as I am now attending USC and I have an opportunity to attend a
figure section tomorrow and I saw lots of art that inspired me for Friday
So tomorrow I shall grab my sketch pad and charcoal...
