August heat can really get to those of us who can't escape to Idaho or San Diego or Colorado. But sometimes there is a reward for being here. First Friday at 515 Arts Gallery was such an event. Even with air conditioning and lots of fans, the crowds made it downright sizzling inside. Enjoyed a nice steady stream of the most interesting people for people-watching...saw old, old friends from a past life, and some who are quickly becoming new friends. The artists of 515 invited 5 artists to join them in showing a 12 x 12 piece and hung their little grouping together. Prices were set by each artist. The work ranges from $90-$600 and several pieces have already been snapped up! I am missing a few pieces from these photos, so you have to come in to see them in person! The gallery is open Saturdays from 1-5 and Third Friday will be a special reception from 6 to 10 pm. All are welcome! Friday, August 17th at 515 Arts Gallery, 515 E. Roosevelt, Phoenix, AZ
