Spoleto Stroll 

When: Fri., June 4, 5-8 p.m. 2010
We know you’ve got a lot on your plate with Spoleto and all, but we also know you might not have a lot of money left in your wallet after forking over the big bucks to see all the high-dollar shows at the arts fest. With that in mind, don’t forget about the First Friday Art Walkin the French Quarter. They’re hosting a Spoleto Stroll, and there won’t be anyone collecting tickets at the door (and there will be free refreshments and hors d’oeuvres to sustain you before you run over to a Piccolo play). Local artist and Art Institute teacher Sandra Brett will have her oil paintings up at Carolina One Real Estate alongside Larry Fertick, best known for his Carolina marsh scenery. Father-and-son artists Charles and Zan Smith will debut a new group of their human-size copper frog sculptures. The dancing Spoleto frogs look awesome, but the red-eyed tree frog will probably give you nightmares. Inspired by a trip to the Himalayas, Robert Lange is premiering a new exhibit focused on embracing life, entitled Go, at his Queen Street studios; pianist and singer/songwriter Brendan James will perform following the opening. Multitalented artist George Speck will be showing off some new work at Ella Richardson Gallery, and if you’re looking for a sampling of art, Scoop Studios will feature work from 28 American artists, with oil painter Kevin E. Taylor serving as guest curator. There will also be exhibits at Edward Dare Gallery, Mary Martin Gallery, Bernie Horton Gallery, COCO VIVO, Utopia Gallery, and Ellis-Nicholson Gallery. Plus, King Street’s stores will be open as well, and their might be some impromptu performances by Spoleto and Piccolo performers. —Cameron Jones
