Weekend watch: Art in Action III, and Paul Ide and Wing Young Huie receptions
If the roar of vintage motors doesn’t get you going, there are quieter offerings downtown. Art in Action III celebrates pedal power with an auction of bike-inspired art at Great Northern Bicycle Co., 425 Broadway, Fargo.
Cycle-related events will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. The fundraiser for the Fargo-Moorhead Community Bike Workshop is free and open to the public.
Paul Ide marks the opening of his new show, “Beyond Functional,” at DK Custom Framing at Gallery 14, 14 Roberts St. Best known for his “Hip Hop Don’t Stop” murals, Ide combines aspects of his aerosol art with the ceramics he’s displayed as part of previous studio crawls. You can also check out two large-scale spray paintings on an interior wall. DJ Stupid Birthday supplies the tunes. (701) 239-0063.
Minneapolis photographer Wing Young Huie hit the streets here in October to capture the images and thoughts of a wide range of community members. What he found resulted in the new show, “Hidden Fargo in Plains Sight.” He discusses the process and the results at 7 p.m. at the Plains Art Museum, 704 1st Ave. N., Fargo. The opening is free for members, $5 students, $10 nonmembers. (701) 232-3821.
