Wheels, Reels, and Hoops
A jump-cut away, at Sequential Art Gallery (NW Broadway & Flanders), a special screening of a 7-minute short film, "Quality Control" began at 8pm. The director, producer, and several of the cast were on hand for the screening. Great film, part of the 48 Hour Film Fest project. Kudos to Falling Tree Films & One Bad Cat Media for creativity under duress. The noise from the nearby Crit wasn't nearly as stressful as the scavenger-hunt-grab-bag methodology of the film fest.
And finally, Rake Art Gallery (NW 6th & Flanders) hosted a benefit for an artist and his girlfriend who are recovering from a recent car accident. Kevin Darras is a talented screen print artist; his work on canvas, paper and clothing was showcased at Rake. Other talent was on hand to lend a festive air to the evening. My favorite--Vannessa Vortex, hoola-hoop artist. Her music and dance routine includes TWO aluminum hoops--try that!
