This month’s ArtAbout celebration, on Friday evening, will become HeArtAbout, an art walk celebrating Valentine’s Day with special exhibitions planned to bring the theme to life.

Some are traditional, like ciocolat’s “Whimsical Hearts,” featuring the works of Mary Neri King; others are nontraditional, like Spa Central’s “Kim Stein Photography — Seasons in Paris” or The Artery’s “Camp Barbera,” featuring works by Thomas and Sara Post that feature the love of a particular location.

Be on the lookout for the Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre and guests doing a special Valentine’s dance on the E Street Plaza and around downtown. The dance in public places program, initially funded by Trokanski and a city of Davis arts contract, is being perpetuated by the company on its own because the dancers had so much fun. For more information, call 530-756-3949 or visit www.trokanski.com.

Treats also are planned: Armadillo Music is partnering with Sugar Daddies to serve ice cream and cupcakes to guests. Wine, chocolate, live music, a disc jockey and other special features are planned by several HeArtAbout hosts.

Davis Downtown’s Second Friday ArtAbout is a monthly evening of art viewing and artists’ receptions at galleries and businesses. All receptions and viewings are free and open to the public; many include complimentary refreshments and opportunities to chat with featured artists. For more information, visit DavisDowntown.com or email ArtAbout@DavisDowntown.com.
