3rd Thursday VS. 5K Run

Thank you to all the die hard art patrons who navigated all the closed streets and full parking lots to attend this month's 3rth Thursday gallery hop. There were many great art events to attend including the show I put together at Galley at Avalon Island. It is one of the best shows we have held since I took over managing the gallery nearly 2 1/2 years ago, and includes local legend Johann Eyfells and painter Amjad Jamal, not to mention some artwork by artist Robin Van Arsdol that most people… Continue

Chitty Chitty Hop Hop!

The other night I took a break from the grind and was transported to my childhood through an automobile that swims, flies, and rescues people in distress. If you’re looking for an escape, (which most of us are) I’d definitely recommend taking advantage of a performance of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang which runs now through April 19th.

In the meantime, leave your work behind tonight and come out and… Continue

Good Friends, Great Food, My Dog and Lake Eola Park… It’s My Small World After All!

For those that don't know me well, I'm a huge nature enthusiast. Needless to say, the past weekend's incredible weather was well received. As the weekend came to a close, I enjoyed Easter Brunch at Graze downtown with a group of close friends. We sat outside on the patio, enjoyed some incredible food, and bathed in the cool breeze . . . all the while sitting next to some fellow Kent State grads, which is home to my alma mater. Small world!!!… Continue

First Bite is the Best, Here's Some Eye Candy to Chew On

Here's a juicy tidbit from me! During a recent walkabout downtown I noticed there's beauty on every corner; whether it's public art or just pretty faces, I never get bored with the eye candy all around downtown.

What gets your attention?

Share your stories and downtown… Continue
