The "FLASHBACK: 1970's" Exhibit at the Southern Shore Art Association will open Friday, August 1st in conjunction with First Friday festivities in the Uptown Arts District. The First Friday reception will run from 5-8pm (CST), offers free snacks and refreshments and is open to the public.
The exhibit brings a variety of artists from Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois together with a vision inspired by the 1970's. To add interest we have several pieces of contemporaneous 1970's works of art on loan for the exhibit. This will allow the audience to compare the eyes of the artists from the 70's with the interpretation of the artists of today. The 1970's were a unique microcosm of culture, host to insight for our current artists. It will be an exhibit in a diversity of mediums and will cover the cultural highs and lows of that decade. Come share their vision, and see how they interpret fads, music and politics, among other trends of the time.
The Southern Shore Art Gallery has also scheduled a second event on Sunday, August 24th. During Gallery hours, 12-5pm (CST) at 1.45pm, "Captain Ambivalent" from Valparaiso, will create some vintage inspiration of his own with his accordion and creative original music. Light refreshments will be served. It will be a great time, so don't miss it.
The exhibit 'FLASHBACK: 1970's" will run from Friday, August 1st until Sunday, August 31st. Southern Shore Art Gallery hours are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 12-5pm (CST). We are located at 724 Franklin, in Michigan City's Uptown Arts District.
