I hope everyone had a safe, fun holiday, and I suspect many of you are extending the festivities into the weekend and taking the day off. Downtown is pretty vacant, but here at the paper, we’re busy prepping for next week’s issues. If you’re in town, here’s a look at some weekend options.
If you haven’t seen Denise Fulton’s “Painted Forest” exhibit at Norwood Flynn Gallery, a warm weekend would be the perfect chance to be refreshed in the gallery’s cool atmosphere. Just looking at Fulton’s smooth brush strokes, cool-toned palette, and landscapes of trees and shaded glens make me feel a little less hot.
The Richardson Adult Literacy Center is raffling off 13 unique birdhouses, each designed and constructed by local artist and area businesses. Stop by their table by Gap at NorthPark Center this weekend for a chance to win a one-of-a-kind addition to your garden. The tickets are just $5 each (or five for $20), and they benefit the organization’s ESL programs.
Reading and yoga are two of the most relaxing things I can think of, so combining them strangely makes sense. This one is for your mini yogees; We Yogi’s Stephanie Spett will lead them in a “literary journey through yoga breathing, storytime, and shavasana,” at 10:30 a.m. today in NorthPark Center’s North Court.
At 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Lindi Li from the Park Cities Chinese Class will lead a storytime in Mandarin Chinese and English, in Bookmarks in NorthPark Center.
