hues that populated the gallery beckoned to all art lovers from
various locations. Many who came knew of the venues reputation to
present splendid work from mainstream and unconventional artists from
the area while a number of newcomers to the gallery were
flabbergasted by the discoveries they encountered. The
evening included music performed by Guitarist TC Carpenter and the
venue's famous Art Raffle.
The quality of the
work on display was truly astounding with a number of pieces bringing
a profound sense of transcendence over the extraordinary exhibits
previously presented at the gallery. A great deal of excitement was
generated by the work which proved to be difficult to retain.
However, it was briefly interrupted as the Gallery's director, Jody
Singer, welcomed the gathering and shared with them news of the venue
along with that of the arts in the area before introducing the
evening's musical guest.
TC Carpenter shared a number of original compositions along with
those created by other artists. Regardless of where a song
originated, the quality of his performance resonated among the
gathering as their souls rang alongside every note. The melodies he
rendered added a thoughtful element to the conversations that echoed
throughout the room and enhanced the exploration of the art
presented. You can learn more about TC Carpenter and his music by
