Walking and other physical activity is undisputedly good for you. Taking in art and socializing with your community, the same, natch. So why not be efficient and do both at once? This Friday affords you just that opportunity. In fact, you can discover art, drink wine — heart healthy! — and enjoy entertainment every second Friday of the month on Fourth Street in downtown San Rafael. This week’s events are set to include a collage & wine workshop and the reception for Asleep in the Tanning Bed at Art Works Downtown. The exhibit features the sculptural and conceptual artwork of artist Nathan Lynch and the intimate drawings of artist Em Meine. Marin Society of Artists will be presenting Atmospheric Wonders, imaginative imagery in relation to the earth or the sky that evokes a sense of wonder, mystery or nostalgia while Youth in Arts will be showing Rising Stars, over 150 two- and three-dimensional works by students at 15 schools. This is only a small glimpse at all the ongoings — for the whole picture, come check it out firsthand.
