Gifts for sale, but tunes and gallery viewings are free
A Creative Art Studio is offering a special music and shopping event for First Friday Denton from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday.
The monthly local arts mixer invites local folks to visit galleries and other arts-related business downtown on the first Friday evening of each month.
At A Creative Art Studio, at 227 W. Oak St., Suite 101, the night kicks off with jazz music from the Dana Isaac Trio — Deke and Dana Isaac with Rick Johnson on keyboard. Following the trio at 8:30 p.m. will be the duo PurlSnapShirts, made up of Joe Stack and Garrett Phelps.
Unlike previous months, when the studio has hosted a featured artist, this Friday several of the studio’s artists will host a special art sale, just in time for Mother’s Day. Special gift items will be available. Throughout the evening, A Creative Art Studio will also have various art demonstrations and a community collage project.
Around the corner at Oxide Gallery, at 211 N. Cedar St. off Oak Street, there will be demonstrations by photographer Rocky Phillips and live music by Eddy Herrera.
At UNT on the Square, 109 N. Elm St., the Jordan Gheen Quintet will perform from 5 to 7 p.m.
Other businesses participating in First Friday include Denton Square Donuts, SCRAP Denton, Banter Bistro and Circa 77 Vintage — all on Oak Street west of the Square.
