Tonight: October Art Walk

The October Downtown Art Walk is here and that means new shows to be seen. Catching my eye is Pharmaka's "Tres Desperados: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly." According to the website, the title "refers to the old spaghetti Westerns that depict the iconic loner trying to make his way in a world he doesn’t necessarily agree with or understand." Opening reception begins at 6p.m.

Across the nickel, Bert Green Fine Art continues "Common Sense" (David Meanix), "Elegant Nasty"(Yun Bai), and "Paintball Nation" (Arthur Tress).

More after the jump.

Late last night, Dale Youngman was prepping the Regent Gallery with new photography and art from this year's Burning Man, and the show's bound to interest some gallery goers to make their way to the 2007 Decompression Festival being held in the Arts District on Saturday, October 13. This year, it's on Santa Fe near the 4th St Bridge.

Infusion Gallery opens a new group show, "Desire Revealed" and DeSoto returns with a preview of Connie Samaras photographs and video shot while an artist-in-residence at the South Pole and Ross Ice Shelf in Antactica. Vast Active Living Intelligence System, (V.A.L.I.S.) will have it's official opening reception October 13.

Also, Tom Gilmore confirms that M.J. Higgins will move their gallery to 4th and Main. No word on Downtown's worst kept secret, "The Speakeasy.

As always, a full list of galleries and a map can be seen at the Downtown Art Walk website.
