Tomorrow (Friday) is Troy Night Out in, of all places, Troy. Shops are open late, there’s music floating through the air, gallery receptions everywhere you turn, and of course, lotsa people meeting up with friends and strolling about. And it’s all FREE!
Here’s just some of the highlights slated for tomorrow (consult the official schedule for the full list)
- Check out the grand opening of the River-Front Art Coop @ 169 River Street, a renovated warehouse with the mission of “to create an outlet for quality, handmade artworks, to promote an appreciation of handcrafted items and to provide an opportunity for artists working in different media to interact.”
- The Arts Center of the Capital Region is featuring a host of student exhibitions (from high school to grad school) in the galleries and “Pitch Me!” featuring Marion Roach-Smith helping prospective authors hone their book concepts in five minute intervals and signing her new book, Writing What You Know.
- Photography bonanza: you can still catch the 32nd Photo Regional @ The Troy Atrium and the Argyos Collection – Silver Years @ The Photography Center.
- Clement Art Gallery is hosting an opening reception for Gary Shankman: A Quarter-Century of Painting from 5-9pm.
- Artcentric Gift Gallery has an opening reception for a new exhibit by Alicia Doebler from 5-9pm.
- You can catch the closing reception of the Joseph’s House Benefit show of recycled artwork and street art @ the temporaily re-opened Kismet Gallery (71 4th St).
- Casper Land is featuring circuit-bending (and mind-bending) music and projections with Marc Denardo, NonHorse and Loud Objects. The performances start at 7:30pm.
By the way, if you’re in an adventurous, jazzy kind of mood, cap off the evening with a concert by the Steve Lehman Octet @ EMPAC at 8pm. Tickets are inexpensive: $15/10/5.
