Art and Wine After Dark
The brand new Main Street Art Gallery on Main St. in Fortuna, hosted its first “Art and Wine After Dark” event on Friday night fom 6 to 9 p.m. The gallery featured work by owner Carlos “Chuck” Bowden, including 84 drawings in pencil and ball-point pen on mediums as diverse as ostrich eggs, clay poker chips and fossilized ivory (not to mention quite a few on paper).
We had a great time going to this inaguaral event with our exchange student, Emilio. Emilio is studying art in his quest to study for a career in mechanical drawing. Chuck Bowden's art is a great inspiration for him.
Fortuna having a full-time art gallery with opening night receptions is a great edition to the Friendly City.
