Ode to a Friend: Selfismo

I went Downtown Uptown 7th!

I hope you took a listen to that one…it’s a perky tune for your morning start!

There’s lots of paving going on right now, but I maneuvered my way into the City Parkade and made it to Enriquito’s solo exhibit, just as it was getting rolling.  A nice group of people gathered to celebrate the art of a prolific and inspiring young man, one we have been blessed to come to know as friend in art.

Snacks and drinks were available and good and uplifting conversations filled the wee vintage-gallery space.  I was grateful to get into some conversation with artists, Fernando and An Dong.  An Dong was pretty pumped to see Wendy Lees and the create! folk earlier in the day.  I had made the effort to see the create! exhibit that is presently happening in the main branch of the Calgary Public Library, but Fridays means a 6:00 p.m. close, so, I’ll have to come down another day.

Congratulations, Enriquito, on your beautiful work, but more importantly, for the friendships you have nurtured over these past years in Calgary.  We will always love and support you.
