Yes, it is that time again. The June French Quarter Art Walk
is this Friday the 5th from 5-8 p.m. For some it's a chance to check out new gallery shows and meet the artists, for some it's a way to snag some free wine and hors d'oeuvres, and for everyone, it's a great opportunity to rub elbows with fellow art lovers. Among the opening receptions Friday are the Corrigan Gallery's Next is Always Relative
, a collective show by six local artists whose works will focus on the varied exploration of surface area. Coco Vivo's latest, An Affaire in the Garden
, features new works by nature artist Pamela Bledsoe. And don't miss the opening of Fluid
(see image) at the never-disappointing Robert Lange Studios, featuring the works of two dynamic Charleston artists, Jessica Dungan and John Duckworth. SCOOP Studios, a new contemporary art studio, is hosting its grand opening at 57 1/2 Broad St.
