A Creative Art STUDIO celebrates March First Friday with Guitars and Photography

First Friday Denton March 1, 2013 small

Spring is almost here and A Creative Art STUDIO is hearing music in the air. Guitar music to be exact. This First Friday we celebrate the noble Guitar with three Guitarists from the Metroplex. Starting at 7:00 we present Denton’s own Doug Raney.
Doug has been playing the guitar for 40 years and indicated that his own musical influences range from the amazing flamenco of Paco de Lucia to the lightning-fast flat picking of Jerry Reed; from the classical wonders of John Williams to the street savvy blues of Stevie Ray Vaughn. Following Doug, Fort Worth, Texas-based solo acoustic guitar master Darrin Kobetich will perform. He classifies his sound as “ambient delta raga thrash grass,” but that’s just scratching the surface. Originally from Long Island, New York, Darrin grew up listening to a lot of music, (including bluegrass, Italian and Greek music, rock ‘n’ roll) and has been playing the guitar since the age of 12. Mark Brandt, Dallas resident, also joins the line – up. Mark first picked up a guitar at the age of 13. Two decades later, armed with a diverse array of influences and experiences, he’s writing music that resonates with passion,
aggression, beauty, and an undeniable flow of energy.
Photographer, Lily Mirsky, is the featured artist of the month. Originally from Riga, Latvia, she came to the USA in 1980 to pursue her dream of living in a free country. She feels that the art of presenting the beauty of the world through the eye of the camera has unlimited potential.
Each month the studio provides a community art project for all to work on. This month a mosaic will be created using small pieces of colored glass and other materials. Artist demonstrations will also be taking place at the studio. Grab and friend and join the fun at A Creative Art STUDIO.
