Okusako: "Mad Scientist," a pen-and-ink drawing of Duder Manor by Rita Okusako, will be exhibited at Armadillo Music, 205 F St., through May 1. The Second Friday ArtAbout reception is from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, April 8.

The Davis Downtown Business Association is hosting a whopping list of 25 events Friday evening at participating galleries and businesses as part of the monthly Second Friday ArtAbout. Interested visitors can print out a map and schedule of receptions at http://www.davisdowntown.com.

The ArtAbout is a monthly evening — roughly 5:30 to 9 p.m. — of open galleries and artists’ receptions and viewings at businesses, galleries and other art-friendly locations in downtown Davis and beyond. Events occur year-round, are free and open to the public.

This month there are four new ArtAbout hosts. Two of the new venues are great stops to bring the kids. Alphabet Moon Toys & Treasures, 605 Second St., will host child-friendly fairy art by Juli Ann Blanco, who also will do face- and hand-painting at the reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Dr. Stephen T. Nowicki will have an arts-themed grand opening from 6 to 9 p.m. for the Davis Developmental Pediatrics Group at 760 Fifth St., where there will be mixed-media works by several artists associated with the Skinner Howard Gallery in Sacramento as well as a children’s art space.

Locals and visitors are reminded to stop by the other two new venues: Lyon Real Estate, 401 Second St., which will host a reception for Sacramento artist Suzanne Bell’s encaustic paintings from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., and the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame, 303 Third St., where visitors can view a special frame-builder exhibit by builders James Olson Lee, Rick Jorgensen and Kimo Tanaka, from 6 to 8 p.m.

More group art shows include a reception in conjunction with the Davis Feminist Film Festival at Delta of Venus, 122 B St., from 6 to 9 p.m., and The Artery’s “8 x 8 = Small & Great,” which features small works by more than 30 friends of The Artery, 207 G St., from 7 to 9 p.m.

The ArtAbout focuses on more than just visual art. Folk-rock musician Lucas Ohio is set to play from 6 to 7 p.m. at Armadillo Music, 205 F St., where an art reception for Dan “Radish” Aguilar’s and Rita Okusako’s otherworldly silkscreens and pen-and-ink prints takes place until 9 p.m. Another new addition to the ArtAbout is Pamela Trokanski Dance Studio’s “flash mob style” dance performances, taking place at E Street Plaza at roughly 6:30 p.m.; Mansion Square, 132 E St., at 7 p.m.; and Davis Commons, 500 First St., at 7:30 p.m.
