Going To The Blue Light Special. Blue Light Special Art Show, That Is.Friday, December 11, 2009
This weekend is the Blue Light Special Art Show, and it's being held at Cahaba Clayworks in Leeds, Alabama this Saturday and Sunday (Sat 9a-5p, Sun 10a-4p).
It's described this way at their site: "Blue Light means bargains--discontinued items, slightly imperfects, atypical items—all priced to move, mixed together with award-winning art."
Besides the art show, which is $2/person admission, they are also doing an Empty Bowls charity event. For $25, you can enjoy a bowl of soup prepared by Chris Hastings of Hot and Hot, or one prepared by the cooks at Laney's there in Leeds, or by Chef Sean Butler of Food Studio B. The $25 is tax-deductible and goes to charity: the Leeds Welfare Cooperative and First Light Womans Shelter.
Okay - now let's talk art!
An entire listing of the artists that will be showing is here - there are some *really* accomplished artists in the group - these are just a few: Larry Allen, Deborah Ballog, Mimi Boston, Toby Klein, Ethel Owen, Tena Payne, Bill Smith.
