Final Friday celebrates the blues

It’s time again for the monthly F!nal Fr!day Art Walk, in Grayson!

For this latest outing the Grayson Gallery & Art Center will host their Summer Arts Celebration with the Blues event this Friday, July 28, with an opening reception for artists and the public. Doors will open at 6 p.m. with festivities continuing until 9 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to dress appropriately for the hot weather and consider making a tax deductible donation at the door. These cash contributions will help support the musician showcased this month. Recent solo-act winner of the Huntington Blues Society’s (HBS) Blues Competition, Allen Talbott of Elkins, WV will be the Gallery’s featured artist for the event. Talbott will be representing the HBS in the solo category and, along with the winning band “Roosterphonic”, will be heading to Memphis to compete in the International Blues Challenge in 2024.

In addition to the music, there is (of course) the art!

Artists from across the tri-state and Eastern Kentucky region have submitted original works in various media with their choice of subjects for this special mid-summer exhibit. Each artist was able to show up to three pieces and are eligible for $50 cash awards including; People’s Choice (by popular vote), GGAC Board Choice, and the Brandon Click Memorial Award. Refreshments will be provided by Catering by Laura.

Coming up at the gallery will be a new exhibit resulting from an open call for work in August and featuring the Ashland area band “Blue Sky”.
