Livingroom: An Intimate Music Series
hosted by Anna Fermin
featuring Femme de Champagne and Sugar Still
Thursday, Dec 3, 2015, 7pm
Singer/Songwriter, and founding FSC member, Anna Fermin, is the host and creator of Livingroom. A kind of “Inside the Actor’s Studio” for musicians, Livingroom strives to create a dialogue between artist and audience, and open a new window in which to see and understand what it means to be a creative being. As facilitator, Fermin will be asking questions to the performers and encouraging the audience to ask them as well. Part performance, part interview.
First Friday Gallery Walks
Starting Friday, December 4
The visual artists in Hubbard Street Lofts will begin monthly gallery walks this December. Gallery walks held throughout the city are free events open to the public. We are hoping to tap in to the art buying public by joining other galleries hosting gallery walks. On the first Friday of every month we will have a curated group art exhibit in the main gallery with additional art in the studio hallways. Spudnik Press already has their holiday sale scheduled for that day so we are anticipating that the first gallery walk will have a holiday sale theme.
