Artist Kristen Crouch graduated from the Savannah College of Art & Design  2 years ago; after graduation, she set up a studio in Wilmington's Acme Studios. Kristen has organized a group exhibit this month-it's called OMNI: An Interactive Art Experience, opening this Fourth Friday.  This multifaceted, experiential exhibit includes performance art and audience participation in addition to 2-D hanging art. 

It's hard to believe that Garrison Kellior's final show as host of A Prairie Home Companion is less than two weeks away — and it's true what they say about time flying!
