The Tory Folliard Gallery— now a well-established member of the Historic Third Ward’s thriving arts district—hosts its “20th Anniversary Celebration.” WoodlandPatternBook Center, a newcomer to Gallery Nights, portrays ecological concerns through artistic mediums with their “Seeing Green: Art, Ecology, and Activism in Milwaukee.” The Peltz Gallery exhibits a collection of watercolors and etchings by Warrington Colescott, offering a preview of the artist’s upcoming retrospective at the MilwaukeeArt Museum. Other exhibitions to visit include Milwaukee Street Gallery’s “Four-Sided Show,” opening Friday at 4 p.m. and featuring Gary Gresl, Janet Roberts, Todd Burton, and Devin Sommerville; Fashion Ninja’s “Hand Bag Expo,” an exclusive three-day event starting tonight; and Luckystar’s “Wish You Were Here,” portraying the finer side of the postal service with an intriguing mail-art exhibit that includes pieces from six countries.
