The Jacob Stroud Corporation* presented their Monthly Evening on Main Event on Saturday July 5th in celebration of the creative influences on Stroudsburg, PA and surrounding areas. Numerous galleries held opening receptions for their featured artists including The Artspace Gallery* Exhibition featuring the works of James Barney.
The Breeze Coffeehouse presented several musicians who provided some faith based music along with their “Table Top Art Contest” in which patrons were invited to explore their creativity by drawing on their table tops while listening to the inspiring sounds. The Breeze Coffeehouse is an establishment sponsored by The Northwinds Church and information about them can be gained by visiting their website at www.northwinds.org. The Main St. Jukebox* presented some innovatively experimental music which was accompanied by The Stroudsburg Art Alliance* who created pieces of Visual Artworks inspired by the sounds. Other sights and sounds were offered by the D. R. Custom Framing Studios who presented musicians outside their gallery while showing a variety of works within it.
I met so many friends throughout the day I’m sure to miss mentioning many if I attempt to do so. So, I won’t. I’ll only say it was great sharing the experiences as our conversations brought about a renewed appreciation for you all in my heart. I invite you to share your reflections of the day by adding a comment to this article. I look forward to hearing from you. The next Evening on Main Event will be Saturday August 2nd.
