Gallery shows ‘best challenge’ in history

FLORENCE—Backstreet Gallery presents Shoe In, Boot It Up, and Roll On.

You’re invited to see how the Florence community met this challenge with their creative talents.

A reception will be held on Saturday, June 10, from 3 to 5 p.m. at Backstreet Gallery, 1421 Bay St. in Historic Old Town Florence. 

There will be great entertainment, delicious food and an array of original art.

The shoe show puts its best foot forward for the month of June.

Participants were invited to do a little fancy footwork to paint, embellish, construct, photograph or decorate in either a three dimension or a two dimension format — something, anything, having to do with footwear.  This year’s challenge may be one of the best in Backstreet’s history.

Sadie Ward of Old Town retail stor On your Feet with a Splash,  juried the show and selected a winner from both 2D and 3D categories. Those artists will have an opportunity to show their work at the gallery in November.

So come by Backstreet. You’ll get a kick out of this exhibit.
