As part of this month's Third Friday at the 78th Street Studios — and also part of Derek Hess' Acting Out! Fest — Hess' gallery hosts a special themed exhibition of artwork created by more than 30 artists who have or have been affected by mental illness and addiction. The monthly open studios event also includes an opening reception at Hedge Gallery for the first solo exhibition of new work by local painter Nikki Woods. A graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art, Woods is the current acting director of the CIA's Reinberger Gallery. Entitled Regrets Only, Woods' exhibition includes new paintings as well as porcelain objects and a multimedia installation. Additionally, E11even 2 debuts its latest themed group exhibition, Cult Classics: A Movie Poster Art Exhibit. The show features original artwork by 22 artists, each themed around a different film. There's plenty more to see and do throughout the building's four floors and 170,000 square feet. Third Friday at 78th Street Studios takes place from 5 to 9 p.m. today. Free live music at 9 p.m. on the building's top floor. Admission is free.
