You’re not gonna let a little winter get in the way of a good arts walk, are ya?
Last Friday we headed out on a trek through the Collar City for the monthly Troy Night Out, and we had a wonderful time. After a pulled-pork ‘n’ brew nosh at the Dinosaur, we stopped into the Photography Center of the Capital District for the closing reception of “Daughters of Aspasia,” the luminous two-person exhibition by Jeri Eisenberg and Gail Nadeau:

The Arts Center of the Capital Region hosted an opening reception for several new exhibits: Andrea Hersh’s fascinating, semi-surreal “Flora & Fauna,” self-taught artist James Kennealy’s “Paintings” and the narrative art group show “Vignette,” curated by Nadine Wasserman:

Yeah, Troy had it going on last Friday. But forget that Albany’s First Friday arts walk takes place from 5-9pm today. Lots to see. Lots to hear. Lots to do. So shake off your cabin fever and hit those streets…
