Continuing 2021 summer events with an “open to all” art show & sale, the Grayson Gallery & Art Center will host their free monthly F!nal Fr!day opening reception for artists and the public on August 27. Sponsored by local businessman Larry Doucet of Blue Sky Telecom, doors will open at 6 p.m. and the show will last until 9 p.m. A variety of works featuring a multitude of subjects & media and up to 50 pieces will be on display through mid-September.
The gallery also welcomes back the band Blue Sky, who will be performing throughout the evening. Tips for the band and donations at the door are much appreciated.
Refreshments will be provided by Snowies of Grayson at affordable prices; their food truck will be located on the mural/Carol Malone Blvd. side of the building. The GGAC will offer discount tickets for meals while they last so visitors may ask a volunteer for a coupon.
In addition, as a special exhibit this month, there will be a display of aviation models and collectibles of the late Mike Phillips, a well-known WGOH Radio personality and former band member of Hung Jury. Pieces are presented thanks to a loan of the collection by his wife, Cindy Phillips. Be sure to check it out closely as various items will also be for sale.
Coming up is a dual-artist exhibit featuring regional artist Cynthia Moegling (aka SYYN) with her collaborator-in-art Marcos Kura of Corrientes, Argentina where he is muralist working for the Department of Public Art in Corrientes. The opening reception for this show, entitled Neos Anthropos: An Energetic Storm, is set for September 24. Watch for more details on all upcoming events and programs.
