Feeling Arty this weekend?

Sometimes I get the urge to do something besides hit the couch and watch the television on a friday night. Other then hitting a bar with friends, or blowing out my eardrums at a local rock show I like to check out some art.

Hitting a local art gallery or museum can be an enlightening experience. You get to sip a beer or glass of wine, hang with hipsters and pretend you might just know something about art. Plus you can be home by ten or hitch a ride on the hipster express and find an all night DJ blowout somewhere.

Two events come to mind this weekend, but they are both on the same night and start at the same time. Maybe you can do half and half!

Hot Ink: Comic Art In Minnesota – All the cool local underground comic artists will be displaying their work and recently published books. Friday, October 3rd, 7:00pm at the Minnesota Museum of American Art at Kellogg Boulevard and Market Street in St. Paul – www.mmaa.org

Tales From The Black Lodge – From the press release –  “Tales from the Black Lodge will feature surreal and otherworldly artwork inspired in part by the creative genius of David Lynch.” This one takes place Friday, October 3rd, 7:00pm at Altered Esthetics – 1224 Quincy St. NE in Minneapolis – www.alteredesthetics.com

    Also tonight is First Thursday at Northrup King Building in NE Minneapolis. I love going to this because it’s much less crowded than Art Attack or the other NE art events. I think NKB is open from 5-9, there’s about 150 artists in there. We’ll be there tonight, looking at Eddie Hamilton’s stuff.
