See the Inspiration

In most walks of life having a mentor makes things easier. They're there with advice when you ask for it, criticism when you're ready for it, and a kick in the pants when you need it most. The relationship between mentor/mentee is one of support and inspiration, especially in the art world. It's this special bond that will be on display in 500 X (500 Exposition Ave.) in the newest exhitbiion, co| action. In it, you will see the work of five pairs of mentor/mentees, including Darryl Lauster/Jeff Gibbons, and Margaret Meehan/Devon Nowlin. Concurrently in the upstairs spaces will be the exhibitions: Soft Space by Michelle Thomas and a collabroation between Kate Colin and Lauren Kirchner. The opening reception will be from 7-10 p.m. Saturday. More information at
Sat., Dec. 6, 7-10 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: Dec. 6. Continues through Jan. 4, 2014
