After waiting for days to find out if my cancer returned, and surviving a work week that kicked my ass, I needed to get out of the house and be around people. Perry texted so I made plans to meet her on Santa Fe at an opening. It was first Friday, along with being the last weekend of summer, so I knew it would be crowded.
I arrived early so I stopped in Michael Warren Contemporary to see the new show. Michael gave me a quick rundown of the show. I ran into Tracy and Brenda at the gallery. Tracy is now an artist in residence at Redline while Brenda is working on a works for her next show. Tracy, Brenda and I walked across the street to Point Gallery to see their new show.
I introduced the ladies to the guys at Point. I bought a small oil painting by Alex Cutler at Point as gift to myself for not having cancer. Cutler is a rising star who has now relocated to Los Angeles to pursue art and a promising modeling career. Tracy and Brenda were headed to the opening at Redline and invited me along. I was waiting for Perry to arrive so I agreed to meet them later.
Mike and Chris showed up a few minutes before Perry and her friend, Tricia (not the Trish who is prone to rants). Introductions were made. We hung out on Santa Fe for a while before heading to Redline.
The Redline event was winding down. Perry and I walked through the exhibits. I favored the contemporary print exhibit. It was interesting to see the art through the eyes of an art consultant. Perry knew most of the local artist and provided a commentary on each. Mike and Chris seemed bored but I was having a good time socializing with Perry and Tricia.
It was getting late so we called it a night. Mike and Chris had taken Car2Go over to Santa Fe so I was giving them a ride home. Mike hadn’t eaten dinner so we stopped for some late night grub at Pete’s Kitchen on Colfax before heading home.
The weekend was off to a promising start.
