(Oct. 5, 2017) Tomorrow’s Snow Hill Arts on the River First Friday provides a perfect opportunity to savor the quickly descending autumn weather while perusing art, browsing street vendors and listening to music, all while enjoying food and drinks from 5-8 p.m.
Kate Patton, executive director of the Lower Shore Land Trust on 100 River Street, said her organization would hold a reception for a pair of artists whose work represents slightly different mediums.
Garry Moore of Anchor Wood Creations, a regular during the 2nd Friday Art Stroll & Makers Market each month in Berlin, will be on hand with his original handmade works.
The LSLT will also feature the artwork of David Thompson, who looks to become a fixture in town, Patton said.
“He and his wife have purchased a building in Snow Hill which they are turning into a gallery,” she said.
Patton said Thompson produces remarkable nature paintings.
“They are textured and patterned, but nature related,” she said. “It will serve as a good backdrop for the wood creations.”
In addition to the lure of creative works, Patton said LSLT would provide light snacks and beverages during the reception.
“It looks like great weather,” she said. “Come down, enjoy the river, enjoy the office and see some really cool artwork.”
Sassy Girl Boutique, on 114 West Green Street, will drop prices 25 percent for all remaining fall and Halloween decorative accents.
Despite the change of seasons, the Pocomoke River Company, 2 River Street, will remain open during First Friday, with canoes and kayaks available for rent. All vessels must be back to the dock by dark.
The Jim Adcock Studio in the John Blair House, on 106 East Green Street, will premier Adcock’s latest print, “Dumsers, Atlantic Avenue and the boardwalk,” as well as feature closeout prices on selected 8×10 matted prints.
Bishop’s Stock Fine Art, Craft & Wine, on 202 West Green Street, will unveil work by landscape painter Carroll Klingelhofer, its October artist of the month. The gallery will also unveil a number of Italian wines featured during October, as well as a new series by versatile artist Ed Challenger, who works with oils, pastels and mixed mediums.
