Five + 5 at Twist Gallery
School Daze
Joe Nolan

For this month's Gallery Crawl, Twist Gallery's space at 73 Arcade will play host to a new show of work by both students and faculty from Watkins College of Art. In the last few years, the college has attracted an increasingly talented number of artists to instruct at the school, and the impact of Watkins' students on the local art scene has taken on the urgency and thoroughness of a zombie rampage: There is no escape! Five + 5 will feature the work of students Lauren Willis, Clayton Lancaster, Robert Dunn, Claudia O'Steen, Alexis Hicks and Tim Marchbanks, which will be shown with the work of Watkins faculty members Ron Lambert, Derek Cote, Kristi Hargrove and Brady Haston and Terry Thacker, who both participated in last year's abstract painting survey at Cheekwood.

Opening reception 6-9 p.m., Feb. 6.
