Join us for First Friday Denton this Friday, May 1st, 7 – 9 pm.
Come hear the sounds of Steve Horn and Leon Peek. They will be performing behind the studio in our “backyard”. We will have a fun community art project, refreshments and some shopping. As you know, there was a fire in the apartment above our gallery on March 15th and at this time we are still waiting for repairs to be completed. We are thinking that we will be back in our building by June but hoping it will be in May. Hope you can join us for our outdoor event.
