DS16: Lily LaRue and an art show too
Many thanks to everyone who braved the blowing snow and booger-freezing temperatures last night to come to Dr. Sketchy at the Hatchback exhibit's opening reception. It looked like a hit from where I was, with lots of art lovers coming and going all night and an enthusiastic batch of sketchers on hand.
I also saw a number of lovely drawings of the beautiful Lily LaRue, so send some my way everyone and I'll post them up here. Lily was awesome, and I encourage everyone to check out her performance at the upcoming Torch with a Twist show next Sunday, March 16 at Cliff Bells in Detroit. Read all about 'em: Here's the link to the Metro Times cover story about Torch with a Twist from last year. Also, aspiring burlesque dancers should keep in mind Lily's burlesque dance classes in Ferndale. Link to the MT calendar blurb here or check out Lily's own site here.
If things were too crowded to get a good look last night, Hatch's Hatchback show will be on display at Café 1923 until April 12. Congrats, by the way, to Sketchy regular Michelangelo Cicerone, who not only won a Dr. Sketchy prize package for his "Think Spring"-themed drawing, but was awarded an honorary membership to Hatch as an emerging artist!
Thanks again all, keep an eye out for an April date TBA soon, and more art and photos will be up from last month's DS too (as soon as the Blogger server stops being temperamental!)
