Andrea and I went to the First Friday South End Gallery Crawl yesterday. This, in my opinion, is the best gallery crawl in the city. And with the weather being perfect, it was a great turnout.

There were 11 galleries participating, many of them serving wine and light refreshments as patrons perused the spaces. Charlotte Art League sort of serves as the home base for the gallery crawl, so it's usually a good idea to start your trek there. Plus, they feature live music.

(See video of a magic trick after the jump.)

Our last stop was Lark & Key Gallery. Owner and artist Duy Huynh, who has his artwork on display along with those of other artists, was a hit as I saw several of his pieces purchased. Some of his paintings looked like they could be scenes from a Tim Burton film.

Also at Lark & Key was magician Michael Casey. After he astounded us with a couple of card tricks, I decided to record one with my Flip cam and told him I would watch it later to see if I could figure out how he does it. Well, I still can't. In the video below, it picks up right after he asks Andrea to write her name on one of the cards. No matter where he places it in the deck, it reappears on the top of the stack. (Do you believe in magic?)
