Art Around Athens
Three more Athens-area art events take place tonight. If you read our local paper, you already know about the two cool new bike rack/pieces of public art installed in front of the Classic Center in downtown Athens. Designed by Joshua Jordan and Michael Ely, they're practical and attractive, and BikeAthens is showcasing them from 4 to 6 p.m. this evening. After you've seen them in person, move over to The Globe for the BikeAthens Art Bash, where you can bid on local art inspired by alternative transportation and quaff some of the great beverages available there.
Out in Watkinsville, from 5 to 9 p.m., Main Street Yarns is hosting a dessert social and art reception for "Creepy and Cute at Christmas," an exhibition featuring paintings, shadowboxes, marionettes and more by local artist Cindy Jerrell.
And from 6 to 8 p.m., Georgetown Frames (50 Gaines School Rd.) is having a free holiday open house featuring local holiday arts and crafts, live music and refreshments.
