Hey all…Brighton will be hopping tonight and all day tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 10 and Saturday, Sept. 11) with live music and great food. I hear the aroma of the ribs and chicken wafting down the street from the cookers is amazing. Art In Bloom will be offering an art-making experience on Saturday that will tie the blues and jazz theme into a community collage. Following the style of Henri Matisse when he created his fabulous paper cut-outs, visitors are invited to grab a sheet of painted or hand-made paper and “draw with scissors.” Each shape cut out will represent that person’s reaction to the jazz and blues festival and will be added to a large collage board. We are also raffling off an Art In Bloom gift certificate valued at $50.00 and good toward any cash-and-carry floral purchase. You won’t want to miss this!
The beautiful watercolor paintings of Dorothy Koliba will be on exhibit at the Art In Bloom gallery space through October 8th. Please stop by to have a look. The addition of this new artwork has spurred me to rearrange the entire boutique and happily make that transition toward autumn.
