A First Friday event with live music by American Bluegrass band Hook + Line is planned for Friday, November 4, from 5:30 pm until 8 p.m.
In this exhibition, a coalition of visual artists reunites, and invites a select group of fellow travelers to create works under the singular theme of Fire. Individual artists show regularly, but core artists and their select guests come together only once every three to four years. Flashpoint is the sixth in an exhibition series established in 2003 that included visual arts exhibitions Multiple Personalities, Illuminate, Thirst, Dirt, and Lift.
Come explore the elemental forces of creation and transformation. Converse with the artists and experience their new works on view at Downtown Art Center.
