Art enthusiasts, prepare yourselves. For one day only, the Bottle and Barrel is playing host to an eclectic and diverse collection of local art. The show will feature all types of artwork, from photography and sculpture to drawings and hand-crafted spoon jewelry. Mark Lone, whose comic art and book Rise of the Underground were recently featured in these very pages, and Amber Russell, who does detailed graphite portraits, worked together to bring a wide variety of artists to a creative venue. Currently five other artists will be featured alongside Lone and Russell, and they hope there will be more by the time the show opens. Many of the artists are also part of Obscuritas, an annual show of local underground artwork with a darker theme. Fire spinner Hana Frank will also be showcasing her fiery talents just outside the Barrel as part of the show. Lone says most artists will also have prints and possibly original pieces for sale. Visitors are welcome to have a drink or two while enjoying the art, but because of the alcohol and mature content of some pieces, attendees must be at least 21 to enter.
