JULY 4th and 18th Events Multimedia Music and Art AND JC's concert series...

FOURTH CELEBRATION: We are OPEN for First Friday July 4th, 6-9pm (Not open 10-4) with music from Child Nouveau and the art of James Dupree. Here is the story on Fireworks that night. The fireworks will be following the Barnstormers game at Clipper Stadium. There is no set time...just after the game. Usually it's between 9 and 10pm. Just hang out 'til you hear the first boom. The parking lot next to Neptune diner is a good viewing location for drivers and Arts Hotel is a great place to wait for the big booms with their exhibition and the bar to keep you entertained. Artshotel website can fill you in on the current exhibition. Come see our beautifications to our courtyard including peace garden and more of our huge umbrellas that keep it cool and comfortable.

Music Friday JULY 18th: This extra special Music Friday also features James and a wonderful Jewelry artist from EGYPT, Fatma and her beautiful creations. We also have Arlene Wartenberg's incredible knitted beaded amulet bags yet another month so if you missed them last month it is not too late to be blown away by these miniature works of art. Music includes some surprise guests and you will have an opportunity to be filmed as a guest and bystander for a high profile project "Troubadour" Hosted by singer/songwriter Suzanne Brindamour. The show is in development for PBS and travels the world in search of musical wonders. Regulars to First Fridays will remember her performances at the gallery last year. I predict music fridays will rival First Fridays if we all support this new way to express our arts together, so please do your part to make it a success!

JC Fetlock is planning some concerts in nature including tonight's (June 21) wolf sanctuary show at Speedwell Forge Road, and upcoming ones at Kelly's Run. They are fundraisers and sure to be a unique experience as musicians will be performing for you in splendid natural locations around the area. JC is known for his musical talent, skills and this impromptu guru has been planning for months to bring together great musicians and push the envelope musically and experientially so if you want more info: Email him at
