First Fridays in Bixby Knolls may be postponed until August, but that’s not stopping Nino’s from hosting their monthly art opening.
Tonight, Friday, June 5 Nino’s Art Bar will be open from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. serving appetizers, cocktails and fine art from Kelly D. Williams and Seong-Heon Kim.
“We have planned a great night of art and fun and we hope that you will not be put off by the cancellation of First Friday and join us for some fascinating new art, fine Italian food and a cocktail,” said Art Bar organizer Doug Orr via email. “We would like to build this into a weekly event and we need your support to make it happen. “…Get out this Friday night and visit the ART BAR at Nino’s.”
Kelly D. Williams presents “That Was Now, This is Then” a collection of new, large paintings and minute drawings that punctuate his past works.
Seon-Heon Kim has reworked photographic evidence of is life and printing the results across 31 ceramic masks — each molded from a segment of his face. This regiments of self-portraits parades the differences possible within the uniformity of a single memory.
The kick-off Art Bar, Nino’s is offering a special sale. Buy any cocktail in the art gallery, and take the same price discount off any two dinner entrees in the dining room.
