German artist Mark Gmehling helps Snap open up their new downtown galleries on Thursday


  • Mark Gmehling
First things first: Snap! Space is not moving out of the historic Cameo Theatre building on Colonial Drive. That location will continue to host the high-quality exhibitions and events you’ve come to expect (like the current Wild Is the Wind exhibit, which you should hit up before it closes on Jan. 30). The new Snap! Downtown hosts three new galleries, with three new shows filling them for this grand opening event. Local artists Chris Robb and Earl Funk show work inspired by color and changing seasons, respectively, and German artist Mark Gmehling returns to show Nu Werks, a collection of prints of 3-D renderings of his drinsch characters. You’ve probably seen an example in the giant mural on the side of the Cameo that looms over Mills 50. The opening gala also features food and drinks from the Courtesy Bar and music from DJs Nigel John and Ken Sherry. As for us, we’re excited to have another stop on the Third Thursday Booze Cruise Gallery Hop.

7-10 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21 | Snap! Downtown, 420 E. Church St. | | free
