One of the great gifts art gives to humanity is the realization that spontaneity can (and often does) create something cool. This was demonstrated as The Origins Gallery in Stroudsburg, PA presented the duo known as “Lobo Marino” on Monday July 27th. The concert was formulated through a discovery that the duo was touring in areas adjacent to those near Stroudsburg, PA and was asked if they could come to the town. Lobo Marino realized they had a day off from their touring schedule and decided to come. The entire arrangement occurred the previous Sunday Evening and was thus dubbed the first installment of the gallery's Last Minute Mondays Series.
Numerous people who have been to previous events at the gallery were contacted and those who maintained a flexible schedule found their way to the music. A sizable crowd did appear which in and of itself reflected how magical the evening would be. The concert was held in conjunction with a Drink and Draw event in which attendees to the concert were invited to obtain a sheet of sketch paper and a pencil that were provided in order to draw an object while enjoying a glass or two of wine. I partook of this activity and found the image I drew got better looking with each sip.
