The Boatworks is Back in Business
This Saturday night, January 19th, the Boatworks will officially reopen for BAC activities. First is the opening reception for the year's first exhibition, Black and White. More than 60 works were dropped off last week by BAC members, many different media, all executed in black and white. The reception is a Salon, so artists in the show will be invited to briefly talk about their pieces and processes. The reception begins at 5:00 pm, with the Salon itself to start by 5:30. All in attendance are requested to dress in black and white. As usual, there is no admission fee for the reception.
The Salon ends at 7:00 pm, and then we will get ready for our first musical performance of the year, in our newly reconfigured back room. Gwynne and Paige Alden will be performing a mix of original folk, pop, and alt country, beginning at 8:00 pm. Tickets are $10 at the door. There will be lots more music coming up in 2013- a list of some of the scheduled performers can be seen on the home page of the BAC main website.
That we have the Boatworks back in shape for art and music is due to the hard work of dozens of volunteers. We couldn't have done it without them. Here is a list of some of the names we recalled:
Jim Aberle, Harry Aschoff, Sally Behler, Alison Bowie, Barbara Brennan, Tom Brennan, Mike Carroll, Dana Cohoon, Tara Collins, Mary Fenton, Steve Harrison, John Hutchinson, Pat Hutchinson, Janice Keown-Blackburn, Chris Krebs, Ali Martin, Michael Miller, Glorianna & Dominick Parisi, Neil Scheck, Bonnie Smith, Dave Taylor, Sandy Taylor, Joe Villa, Tom Volker, plus Cody from North Jersey and Mike the Sheet Rocker. If we think of anyone else, we'll add them later.
