It's a Wonderful Art Bus: Brick House Gallery

Seriously. Anyone who doesn't sit by this fire at the Brick House Gallery should have their head examined.

THIRD THURSDAY ART BUS IS MY FAVORITE >>>

I love Christmas. I got a swell $5 Radio Shack gift card and "Dilbert" coffee cup yesterday during a "Secret Santa" gift exchange with my two best friends. (Shhhh ... I know it was Artic Puffin because his bedroom is practically a nerd shrine to "Dilbert," so it's not a stretch to imagine him having a huge collection of coffee cups at home. And I remember him mentioning his sister works at Radio Shack, so it wouldn't surprise me in the least if she hooked him up with the card.) I know it was Artic Puffin. Seriously.

Anyways, I'm hosting the December Third Thursday Artwalk Art Bus like this Thursday! You gotta come. Seriously. It's going to be fun. We're going to sing everywhere. We're going to sing in the bus and at Two Five Trees and where an old building was and everywhere. Tacoma music guys Doug Mackey and Evan Purcell will lead the sing-along. I can't believe they're doing it. Awesome.

We're also going to see lots of pretty pictures and stuff. The bus goes everywhere; check it out here.

One of the stops will be at Brick House Gallery. A super tall and super pretty man named Peter MacDonald owns the house. I think HE'S the most interesting man in the world. Peter says he's got a new show up by Mindi Katzman called Another Point of View: Encaustic Paintings and Other Works. Peter says, "Mindi Katzman has been painting for more than 25 years and working in encaustics for almost 15. She brings a unique and unusual style to encaustics. Her latest work is extraordinarily vivid and has a depth that shows her mastery of this unique technique.  While her vision has mostly taken its point of departure from landscape, the viewer is always challenged with a 'close but not quite' sense of reality. This group of paintings and other works span some of her artistic journey."

I don't know what that means but EXCITING!

Those who have visited the Brick House Gallery during Third Thursday Artwalk know Peter has the best food and drinks in all of the world.

I asked Peter what the Brick House Gallery wanted form Santa and he said, "What I want from Santa this year is some people who appreciate fine art and have some Jingle in their Kringle. ..."

Jingle in their Kringle. Jeez, that's hilarious.

OK. So the bus is $10 to ride and it's going to be super cool. Sign up here. And that pretty girl Angela Jossy keeps bugging me to tell everyone that the Art Bus takes off at 5 p.m. from the NEW Speakeasy location at 409 Puyallup Ave. across from Alfred's Cafe. Jeez, Angela. I get it.
