Now see this: Individual faces exploring the multicultural trail, old-timers and newcomers meet randomly on outdoor patios,coffeeshoppers sipping smooth refills fix rough drafts, feel the blur of lunch rushes and passing crushes. Refreshed pets with stretching collars bend leash laws and negotiate territories. Carbon copycats reach out and touch base. Rushing scooter breeze gusts and shuffles poetic book pages randomly toward more fascinating passages.
CALVIN FLETCHERSs COFFEE COMPANY • 647 Virginia Ave
Calvin Fletcher’s exhibit reflects on urban neighborhoods. When we think of an urban neighborhood, we often envision manmade things. But throughout the shapes of our neighborhood, wildness abounds; from ancient oak trees to wild grasses and flowers pushing through cracks and reclaiming lots. We catch glimpses of goldfinches, cardinals, red-winged blackbirds and crows tending to remnant prairies and forests. These manmade and natural elements combine to create tension and beauty.
