Taking the evening away from the Web today. I'll be participating in the second annual Arts Night at the Unitarian/Universalist Fellowship of Bay County tonight from 7 to 9 p.m. The Fellowship is located at 1410 Airport Road in Panama City, at the intersection of Lisenby and Airport Roads.
Admission is FREE and light refreshments will be served, free of charge.
The evening will begin with jazz piano by Jeanine "Dr. Jazz" Normand, from Fairhope, Ala.
I will be reading from my fiction work, and Lynn Wallace of Gulf Coast Community College will read selections from his original prose and poetry. Both of us will have copies of our books available for purchase at our tables.
Local artist Jim Davis' paintings will be displayed throughout the building. Jim will be showing some of his work from the 1970s and 80s that has never had a public showing before. His artwork will be available for purchase.
Rug-weaver and jewelry-maker Emily Pritchard will have her work set up for display and for sale.
The Panama City Belly Dance group will perform. Group leader Kira Burdeshaw will talk about the history and ancient traditions of the dance.
Says organizer (and flutist) Paul McAuliffe: "Last year we had a full house and hope to be just as successful this year. Please join us in our celebration of the arts!" For more information contact Paul McAuliffe at firstname.lastname@example.org
Maybe I'll see you there?
Look for photos and possibly video of the event coming in the next day or so.
