The gallery tour started later than usual on Friday night. Sheila popped over with a piece of homemade key lime pie when I got home from the gym. I had a nice talk with Sheila. Before long it was almost six. After a quick dinner and shower I was out the door around seven.
My first stop was Havu. Their new show has very colorful paintings by Jim Waid and Jane Abrams along with ceramic by Margaret Haydon. Many of the paintings are very large. The painting prices mostly ranged from $5,000 to $15,000.
The next stop was Point which has a Robin Ross retrospective. I liked most of the paintings in this show but they hovered around the $6,000 mark.
I ended the night at Vertigo Art Space which has new works by Carin Rodenborn. This shows explores the emerging trend of deconstruction. I liked all the works in this show which consists of acrylic paintings on linen. This was my favorite show of the night. The works are the most affordable of three shows with prices in the $500 to $1,500 range.
