First First Friday: A Photo Essay

Christy, Armando, and Nina - heading out for their first First Friday in KC

First Friday first stop: Fresher Than Fresh Snowcones - Hi, 'Lil Snowie!

Next stop: "In Stereo" - the show of our friends Rachel Kort and Ellie Kort, who are twins

At Ellie and Rachel's show we met up with friends Chris, Mirna, and Alex

Mirna led us to the exhibit of Betsy Timmer whose tender and moving artwork is currently exhibited in a show with artist Tom Witzofsky called “I'll Show You Mine …” at The Base Gallery which is inside the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center

Jerry Bleem's artwork is also on display at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center, including this quilt, made entirely of plastic bags, and titled "Remind me again why we're depleting the earth's resources and burying them in landfills"

Another Jerry Bleem piece made of stamps arranged in four different canvases that spell out "Sic Transit Gloria Mundi" which means "Thus passes the glory of the world"

Nina having a good time

We ended the evening with Thai food at our favorite place - Lulu's
