A little of what’s going on this time:
At Sage Salon & Studio: Urban Odysseys: Photography by James Fedele
Plus live music by Ben Field and food from Mellow Mushroom
At Sozo Gallery: Sozo Gallery presents “Transcendent Light,” an exhibition featuring selected works by Nicola Parente and Patrick Fagerberg Art. The two artists each have their own way of presenting light and its sources, effects, energy, and mysticism all through their abstract works. The exhibition will be on display from August to September. Also come out to enjoy beer samples from Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery as well as purchase handmade jewelry from Piet Jac Designs during the crawl.
During the crawl look for the brightly decorated pianos on Uptown’s sidewalks. They’re there for the public to play and enjoy. They’ll be near all the crawl locations from Thursday, July 27th, through Friday, August 25th. Piano Parking was made possible by a generous grant by the Arts and Science Council.
