In short, it was a smash! The atmosphere was festive, the event was well attended, and the weather was - in a word - perfect. Lots of art was on display, including Todd Smith's photos at the Hub, the amazing glass sculptures at SCCA, and Dale Weibley's tile works at Jonal Gallery. (I only regret I didn't make it to Garth Gallery this time.) Visitors and shop owners lined the streets (especially the 400 block of Locust), and the drum jam session in front of the old State Theater could be heard for blocks. The air was full of positive energy and - dare I say - "good vibes."
Thanks go to Chris Davis for organizing the event, as well as all the artists (including musicians), shop owners, gallery owners, and visitors for making this a memorable evening.
