This month for First Friday Art Stroll, there are a couple of overlapping events and you know what that means: it’s a great weekend to get down to Historic 25th Street!
Art Stroll is March 6th, roughly 5 to 9 pm but you’ll want to check the schedule below and with individual retailers for special hours.
The Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) is Friday night – one night only – at Peery’s Egyptian Theater. This is the fifth year in Ogden and contributes to our ongoing river restoration projects, and trust us, it’s an event for more than just fishermen!
For the art stroll, there are a ton of fun happenings on Friday night so make sure you get here early and have time to do it all!
Stop in for dinner at Rovali’s Ristorante where you can enjoy live music with Scotty Haze from 6:00 to 8:30 pm. They’re featuring one of their fan favorite dishes as well; Spaghetti and Mama’s Giant Meatball.
Scotty Haze will be at Rovalis Ristorante
Grounds for Coffee is featuring a photo poetry exhibit entitled “I am…” The feature is part of an ongoing collection created and curated by students of Nurture the Creative Mind. While you’re there be sure to check out the mini cheesecakes by the Bake Shop.
Nurture the Creative Mind, in their space at the south end of Union Station, is hosting the Ogden 52 Project which was recently featured in the Standard Examiner. Ogden 52 divided a map of Ogden into 52 sections, which community members then drew at last month’s art stroll via a plain old deck of cards. The resulting photos will be on display this time and an additional set of 52 cards will be drawn at a later date in March (updated since the Standard’s article was published).
Salon Bleu has artist Steve Stones whose work dabbles with literal observations, parody and humor.
Pandemonium has a new display by David Bowen and another by Vanessa Colunga, the long-awaited Shining Series.
Green the World has paintings by local artist Danial Larsen, whose work you might remember from the Ogden Arts Festival this past summer.
Chandler at Whitespace
Whitespace Contemporary is opening a new exhibit titled Personae: deliberate . dissociative . disorder . This is a one-man show, but only in the literal sense. Collin Noortmann Chandler is a single given name, but three artistic personae. He reserves the signature “C. N. Chandler” for the work the he is generally known for, representational contemporary with metaphoric themes. (Eccles patrons will recall his large watercolors of Weber County gates and locks.) “C. Noortmann C.” paints and signs the abstract or confrontational ideas that won’t be suppressed. Finally, “Collin N. C.” signs the primitive or playful notions that childishly crave attention. Collin’s cartoonish “Swimmers” series may appear to be sperm, but he assures they are really concrete. This exhibit will be the first time work from all three will be shown together. We’ll see if they can play nice.
The other event happening this weekend is the 26th annual Hostler’s Model Railroad Festival – running all weekend long at Union Station. The railroad festival packs the house year after year and we’re excited to be welcoming RR fans of all ages.
Can’t make it out for art stroll? Rovali’s has “round two” for local musical entertainment on Saturday with Caleb Wendt performing from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.
