This week Friday will be the day. The day when you may have to choose between events to attend, or, maybe you will be able to squeeze in a couple of events. The first First Friday Gallery Walk of 2018 will begin at 5 PM and end at 7 PM in downtown Southport, NC. Three galleries will be involved in this walk: Ricky Evans Gallery, Franklin Square Gallery and Lantana’s Gallery & Fine Gifts. Local Jewelry artist, Beth Zink, will be featured at Lantana’s. At Ricky Evan’s, Miniature Art Masterpieces by gallery artists will take center stage. While at Franklin Square Gallery you will enjoy the paintings and three dimensional objects in the Associated Artists of Southport Spring Art Show. You will even be able to witness the presentation of awards to the show winners. Also included in the evening will be delicious munchies and wine.
With sign-up beginning at 7 PM, Brunswick Little Theatre will be hosting their second Open Mic Poetry reading. At this event you will be able to read your own poetry; read poetry you enjoy that was written by someone else; or just be in the audience enjoying the poetry and encouraging the readers and writers.
If you like to dine and dance to live music while contributing to worthy local causes, you might want to attend the Diamonds and Denim Ball, also on Friday evening in Southport, NC.
Don’t miss Opera Sunday beginning at 2 PM on Sunday at the Southport Community Building. This event is presented by the Friends of the Library. The performers are from UNCW and these wonderful young students with amazing voices will be singing selections from Mozart’s Don Giovanni.
