Repurposed: An Exhibit at the Eastern Shore Art Center
Andy's Repurposed exhibit at the Eastern Shore Art Center in Fairhope, Alabama, opened last night and will remain on display until the end of February. His art fills the Whiting Gallery, as well as part of the foyer.
Andy and I drove to Fairhope for last night's opening at the monthly Art Walk, which was held at the ESAC from 6:00-8:00 PM. The next Art Walk is February 6th. I'm not sure if we will be able to attend, but I encourage you to if you're in Fairhope that evening. Otherwise, his exhibit can be seen during the Eastern Shore Art Center's regular business hours and is located at 401 Oak Street, Fairhope. All of Andy's artwork is available to purchase. Call the ESAC at (251) 928-2228 for inquiries.
Before the Art Walk, Andy and I had a couple hours of free time to explore Fairhope. It's a charming town with historical buildings and cool shops. We both really liked the mural by America Jones located at the corner of Church Street and Fairhope Avenue. She originally painted it in 2003, then repainted it in 2014. As you know, Andy painted a billboard in Minneapolis last summer. He would love an opportunity to paint another large-scale project.
We were treated to dinner at R Bistro & Pastry by Fred and Ashley, our sweet friends and patrons of the arts. It was an amazing meal! We shared the Shrimp and Slaw appetizer, then both ordered the Pan Fried Grouper with Sauce Choron and Crawfish Andouille Orzo. Oh my word... it was excellent! I would highly recommend this restaurant, which is located at 334 Fairhope Avenue.
Lucky for us, the Christmas lights were still on display, which made this charming town even more so. What a great time of year to visit!
If you're in the Fairhope area this month or next, please visit Andy's exhibit at the Eastern Shore Art Center. Let them know we sent you.
