Art of the Wheel...

Dwellers or lurkers in the Columbia, Maryland area and outposts thereof may want to throw a leg over their bikes this Saturday and point the wheels in the direction of the Columbia Art Center. The center is presenting a juried art exhibition, curiously entitled "BIKE," showcasing the talents of almost 50 artists from around the country. Local single speed legend riderx somehow managed to step off the bike long enough to submit some of his photographic oeuvre, as did the disco cowboy (who, rumor has it, is NOT dead, though he sure seems damn sluggish lately), and one Brad Quartuccio of Dirt Rag fame, among many others.

The exhibition runs from October 20 through November 20, but this Saturday, October 29, is the Gala Reception, which will be held from 6 to 8 pm. Along with food and drink and an awards ceremony, the reception offers the chance to mingle with some of the featured artists.

Of course, it's de rigueur for cyclists to show up to the event on two wheels, so ride 'em if ya got 'em.
