This First Friday’s guest artist is Marshall Kregel, and he will be showing his pottery at his cousin Leslie Kregel’s Cimarrona studio at 721 South Locust Street in Denton. Learn more about Marshall Kregel on his wordpress site, and follow him on twitter as well.

Since the last First Friday, Bumble Beads and Jupiter House Coffee have been added to the list of participants, and we also have a tentative mixer for those in and interested in participating in First Friday Denton, scheduled for May at the Center for the Visual Arts on Bell Avenue in Denton. Please check back for more details about the event as they become available.

If you have any announcements for this First Friday, it’s not too late to have them posted here on firstfridaydenton.com. We are anticipating a bit of publicity from the Denton Record Chronicle, so look for that on your news stand as well.

Nicola Jane’s Beaded Jewelry at Wine Safari

Nicola Jane’s Beaded Jewelry at Wine Safari

Bushwhackers Wine Safari will host Nicola Jane’s Beaded Jewelry this First Friday evening, so be sure to stop in and sample the fine wines at Wine Safari and get a look at the jewelry made by Nicola Connor.

Nicola moved to Denton in 1993 and began making jewelry six years ago. She started, like so many artists, in a spare bedroom, and eventually had a studio built in her back yard. She occasionally has open houses there, and her day job as Newton Rayzor Elementary School in Denton.

Wine Safari will have a wine rep to sample 4 different wines. It will be from 6-8 and the cost is $10.00 per person.

Gloria Ferrer Carneros Chardonnay (California)
Enticing aromas of ripe Gravenstein apple, Asian pear, hazelnut and hints of oak spice abound in the nose of this Chardonnay.

Tapena Tempranillo (Spain)
Tapena is an innovative brand that offers expressive, fruit forward, indigenous wines from the heart of Spain. The name Tapena fuses two of the liveliest Spanish concepts: tapas, flavorful foods made to share and pena, a close group of friends.

Gloria Ferrer Pinot Noir (California)
Succulent raspberry, plum, and black cherry fruit aromas and hints of brown spice and forest floor announce this delicious Pinot Noir.

Finca Malbec (Mendoza)
This magnificent Malbec exudes lush, enticing aromas of blackberry, black plum, cassis and toast.

Make sure you let the folks at any participating businesses know how and where you heard about First Friday Denton – no matter how you heard about it!

Welcome Banter, Amyx Fine Jewelry and Recycled Books

There are two new participants in the First Friday Denton event as of this writing and they are the well known coffee house Banter, located on 219 W. Oak Street and Amyx Fine Jewelry, at 222 W. Hickory in the same courtyard as Vigne.

Amyx, Banter and Recycled Books are listed on the “Businesses” page.

Recycled Books at the corner of Oak and Locust, has been an anchor in an everchanging sea of businesses on the Historic Square in Downtown Denton. They are certainly a business that sells art – in the form of books and music. It’s a great place to find a quiet corner and read or look at photography books. They have the most extensive collection of photography books to be found in the area.
