Get A Haircut, See Some Art

Beginning on their one-year anniversary as a business, The Paradise Beauty Salon & Art Gallery (2008 E Michigan Ave., Lansing, MI 48912, phone 517-367-2206) will feature paintings and prints by Andrea Eckert and Peter Richards.  The salon's bright pink walls should provide an arresting backdrop for Andrea's naturalistic, gestural abstractions and Peter's tectonic surfaces and architectural studies.

The Anniversary Party is March 20, starting at 3 o'clock.  Not sure if it is open to the public, but stop by anyway -- I'm sure Carmen Paradise (singer/songwriter, bassist for Calliope, 1/2 of the alluring Psyche's Sister and 1/4 of the upbeat pop combo The Good Mornings) won't turn you away!  I'm told that the ceiling of the salon will be flooded with balloons.

Carmen's beauty salon (right nextdoor to Magdalena's Teahouse) opened up one year ago and provides a full range of haircutting and beauty services.  I usually get a scalp massage with my haircut!  Carmen has opened up her walls to local artists, and Andrea and I are excited and honored to be featured there.
