After chatting at her place for about a half hour, we hopped in her car and headed to downtown Canton for First Friday. A variety of art galleries and businesses had their doors open to the public. We wandered in and out of galleries. Obviously we paused in the places where we found art we enjoyed :) The jewelry store was far beyond our price ranges--the clerk walking around with the wine helped set a more expensive atmosphere--but we enjoyed seeing some unique pieces.
A sobering stop was inside a very simple gallery that was hosting part of the AIDS quilt.
Becky remembered a gallery that featured student art, so when we saw a sign pointing to a gallery of youth art upstairs, we climbed the steps. Here, we discovered the teenage products but then gallery after gallery of paintings, photographs, and mixed media. I loved it.
