A caution to the readers: If you take our advice and attend the hot event of the evening, you will be in grave danger of having your mind blown. Three abstract artists working in a trio of mediums debut a ton of trippy artwork tonight at the Kimball Jenkins Galleries.

In the Carriage House Gallery, check out Tae Nelson’s paintings. They were created with an almost primal drive; the hand-applied acrylic paint is gouged and chipped and one can see the raw emotion is conveyed through the smears and splatters.

Across the room, photographer Charlie Lemay’s exhibit focuses on the little things, breaking down the ordinary into mere atoms with his detail shots. In other words, his close-ups are far out!

Across the driveway in the mansion (in our heads, mansion is pronounced like it would be on Downton Abbey), Barbara Filleul’s paintings are at once child-like and sophisticated, equal parts cave drawing and abstract watercolor. Feed them to your brain!

The exhibit is open from 5 to 7 p.m at Kimball Jenkins Galleries, 266 N. Main St. For more information, visit kimballjenkins.com.
