The Bourgeois Pig
As a member of the Fresh Produce Art Collective, Johanssen has shown in and curated more than 75 shows from Lawrence to Paris. His work combines the color and energy of graffiti (where he got his start as an artist) with the “more representational images produced through photography.”
In a nod to Valentine’s Day, the Phoenix Gallery will host “It’s Sweet to be Local,” a joint celebration between the gallery (825 Massachusetts St.), the Raven Book Store, Mass Street Sweet Shop and Z’s Divine Espresso.
Henry’s Coffee Shop
Henry’s wants to “warm your soul” this Final Friday with art, hot apple cider and free massages. A winning combination, no?
From 6 to 9 p.m., stop by the coffee shop (11 E. Eighth St.) for the “Just a Taste” reception. Works by 16 local artists (including SeedCo Studios director Jeromy Morris and Leslie Kay, owner of LFK Press) will be on display.
After taking in some art, relax with a sample massage from Chelsi Reed of Mass Relaxation.
Griffith Payments + Harbortouch
A limited edition of Lambert’s Fine Art Digital Prints will be available for purchase on that Friday, and hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served.
The New York City-based artist has been featured in publications like Rolling Stone and Harper's Bazaar, and has shown his work in New York City and Amsterdam. Originally a photographer, Lambert now works in oils and mixed-media paintings.
Organizers behind the show, now in its third incarnation, asked the community to submit work built around the theme of love. Last year's event featured nearly 80 artists of different ages and skill levels.
Singer-songwriter Matt Williams will provide some opening-night tunes.
If you haven’t made it out to SeedCo’s new location at 720 E. Ninth St., mark your calendar for the space’s open studios and resident group exhibition.
