The arts scene in Magnolia Park lives well beyond the vintage couture designs of its throwback shops and barista bars, beyond the art galleries and theaters that pepper its storefronts.
Starting Friday, a group of artists will demonstrate that art pulses through every fiber of this eclectic stretch of commerce.
A new show at Towns Burr Gallery features work that explores the Magnolia Boulevard streetscape. From Burning Bonzai to Buena Vista, the entire Magnolia Park district will be represented in photos, oils, mixed media, watercolors and collage.
The main rule of "Creative Visions of Magnolia Park" — let the buildings be your guide.
"I wanted (the artists) to be inspired by whatever they're inspired by," said Connie Towns Burr, the gallery owner who is hosting the show.
She's also a driving force behind the district's "Women's Night Out" monthly events, so it's no coincidence the show is opening this Friday during the monthly open house for Magnolia Park businesses.
