Out of Winter; Out of the Blues – Art in mARTin on Feb. 6th

Out of Winter; Out of the Blues – Art in mARTin on Feb. 6th       

By Elyse Pollick

One of my favorite TV shows (The West Wing) featured a great monologue about why we should care about the arts.  It went a little something like:

“There is a connection between the progress of a society and progress in the arts! The age of Pericles was also the age of Phidias. The age of Lorenzo de Medici was also the age of Leonardo da Vinci. The age of Elizabeth was the age of Shakespeare.”

On February 6th, we’re proud to host the 3rd Art in mARTin event from 5:45-8:00 pm. We’ll have the work of over a dozen local artists on display, the musical renderings of Sympathy & the Lion, extended open hours for The Small Bookshop, wine tastings by Allegro Winery, refreshments by Sunday Dinner Bistro Catering and so much more.  Art will be available for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Martin Library.

The event is generously sponsored by Downtown York’s own Dale E. Anstine law firm. Because the library isn’t normally open on Fridays, we also rely on our staff and volunteers donating their time to make this event possible. We sincerely hope you’ll join us again February 6th for what’s sure to be another amazing art event.  Come celebrate First Friday with us!
