April Events with Art by Farida Hughes

I’ve been very fortunate this year to have had already many opportunities to show my paintings. This, of course, means painting more pieces to show! I have kept up, and am excited to list some of the events in Minneapolis this April where you can see my work.

Dog Days Open Studio event at the California Building, 2205 California Street, NE, Minneapolis, is Saturday, April 14. My studio, 207A, will be open for the entire event from 11 am – 4 pm. You are welcome to bring your social dog.  Aurora the rescue pup will be there to greet visitors for the first couple of hours. Then, on Sunday, join me for the Opening Reception of Connections at The Mill Yard at Stonebridge Lofts, 1120 South 2nd Street, Minneapolis, from 2 – 5 pm.

Surface | Tension at Bridgewater Lofts is up until June 8, 2018 at 215 10th Avenue S., Minneapolis.

Collected Amalgamations, a solo exhibition featuring my Blends and Common Threads series, is up at Opening Night Gallery through  April 23,  at 2836 Lyndale Avenue South, Minneapolis.

And don’t miss this intriguing group exhibition: Artists in the Kitchen, A Collaborative Project, through May 19 at, Textile Center Galleries, 3000 University Ave SE, Minneapolis.
