Close your eyes and imagine yourself sipping flavorful red wine as you discuss with a stranger the feelings evoked by the painting on the wall in front of you. By the end of the night, the stranger calls you a new friend. The room around you buzzes with other minglers, and you’ll remember this night fondly each time you stop to contemplate the painting, which you are about to buy directly from the artist. Now, just where do you imagine this taking place? How about in a shopping plaza in Pompano Beach? You may be in for a pleasant surprise if you head over to Art on the Boulevard tonight, hosted by Greight Spaces Interior Design (2611 E. Atlantic Blvd., Pompano Beach). On the first Friday of the month, the company’s office space is transformed into a gallery to showcase artists’ works. The free event happens from 6 to 9 p.m. in correlation with Pompano Beach’s East Village “Uncorked” event, at which several restaurants feature winetastings and international dishes and live music floats into the warm ocean air. Call 954-788-9044, or visit greightspaces.com.
