I attended the opening of "Imaginary Maps of the Real World" featuring the art of Ales Bask Hostomsky (Bask) this past Friday night at The Alternative Cafe in Seaside and took some pics. I try to make it to each of the gallery openings at The Alternative Cafe on the second Friday of each month. I highly recommend going to the Alternative Cafe. The atmosphere is inviting, and it's a great way to break away from the norm and broaden your horizons. The place adds excitement to my life, and if I lived closer, I'd be there more often.
Here's the cafe's Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Alternative-Cafe/56127099192

Good company, art, and an hors d'oeuvres tray to orbit and grab appetizing snacks off of.
I don't think Ugly Dolls could be much cuter. They're available for sale at the cafe along with other merch.
Ian Tomasino's artwork interspersed with merchandise available at the cafe.
The walls were well decorated.
A wall with Maryia Grigor's impressive artwork.
This painting by Maryia Grigor really caught my attention.
And now for the works of street artist Bask:
Scream it out!
You can see this artwork displayed at the cafe through October 11, 2011.
