Just Between Us

May 6 is the date for this month's Art After Dark in San Luis Obispo. A highlight of this month's AAD is the opening of a new show in the McMeen Gallery upstairs at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art. The show is named "Just Between Us". It's a collaborative experiment between Lucie Ryan and me. As we were working on the finishing touches of the show, we noticed a remarkable correspondence between our collaboration and a series of drawings by our friend and fellow artist, Evany Zuril, from Fresno. We asked her to put some of those drawings in our show, and we are happy to announce that she sent us 6 drawings to include in the show.

After the show opens, I'll post images in an entry here. I'm holding off on the pictures until then because I don't want to spoil the fun for those of you who will be able to make it out to Art After Dark. This show surprised us, even though we designed it, and we are hoping that you can come to check it out. It's a perfect example of the sum being greater than its parts—and we thought the parts were pretty damned good on their own.

Speaking of which, take a moment to get acquainted with Lucie and Evany and their work.

And if you are not familiar with the McMeen, it is at 1010 Broad Street at Monterey in San Luis Obispo. It's up the stairs at the Broad Street entrance to San Luis Obispo Museum of Art.

Art After Dark is a county wide event in which all the galleries stay open late and schedule show openings on the first Friday evening of each month.
