An opening reception for Queer Art Show 3 takes place tonight from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. during Third Friday at 78th Street Studios. All works are available for purchase and will be sold directly off the display wall.

Immediately following the reception, local musician and co-founder of Survival Kit, Brian Straw, is presenting free performances by local bands and musicians in the gallery.

​PopEye Gallery is located in Suite 303 on the third floor of 78th Street Studios. As always, all Third Friday events are free and open to the public.
