"Absinthe Makes the Heart Grow Fonder," group metalworks show
BRIGHT & SUNNY | If all goes according to plan, this month’s First Friday won’t be whitewashed out, so art-starved public can check out Scott Davis’s holistically informed abstract paintings and Claire Seidl’s “Whereabouts,” a series of photographs of natural environments, at AUCOCISCO GALLERIES (89 Exchange St.). Or they could pop into ANGELA ADAMS (273 Congress St.) for first cracks at a handmade line of upcycled cashmere hats, perhaps on the way to MAYO STREET ARTS’ (10 Mayo St.) showcase of colorful, meditative paintings by Kelly McConnell, a longtime Portland resident and MECA educator. Ending a night at the BAR OF CHOCOLATE (38 Wharf St.) usually means its been a good one, but those going while its young will find a potentially intriguing assembly of metal and jewelry works by local artists, billed with the title “Absinthe Makes the Heart Grow Fonder” — a basic truth.
reception 4-7 pm
