  1. Photography Exhibit

    April 6, 2017, 11:00 AM - April 30, 2017, 5:00 PM @ Artworks@7th Fine Art & Unique Gifts

    The photography of John J. (Jack) Young is the featured exhibit for the month of April at Artworks@7th. The show combines street photography, in the form of street musicians who entertain us as we pass on by from one place to another, with landscape and seascape photographs that evoke a sense of melodic inspiration - with the overriding theme being “Everyday Melodies.” Street photography and landscape/seascapes - a little something for everyone! There will be an Opening Reception on April 8th from 1:00-4:00 PM, with special musical guest Aimee Henderson, playing the soothing, haunting sounds of the Bowed Psaltery. So come on out, meet the artist, support your local arts community, and peruse the photography of John J. Young as well as the work of the other creative and talented local artists – you’ll be impressed with the artistic quality and creativity of the work and you might just find that something special for friends, family, or even for yourself!
