A Return Engagement

From the Saline Downtown Merchants' Association

On June 27, we held a marvelous “One Night Stand” Art Show & Sale in Downtown Saline. More than 20 artists from all over Washtenaw County brought their works to a temporary gallery set up in front of the Chamber of Commerce offices and hundreds of visitors enjoyed the show, sampled wine from the Spotted Dog Winery and listened to music performed by Becky & Paul Pazkowski (and Adam Nola). Such success certainly warrants a “Second Date” so we’re doing it again!

The “Second Date” Art Show & Saline will be held on Friday, August 15 from 7 to 10pm in Downtown Saline. This time, the show will be located on the second floor of Murphy’s Crossing (above Mac’s). This location puts the show right onto S. Ann Arbor Street where the Summer Music Series concert featuring Justine Blazer will be happening from 6:30pm to 8pm. The art show format will be the same: All artists are invited to bring 2-3 pieces to show and sell. Artwork will be hung on the day of the show from 1 to 5pm. Artists must attend the show and are responsible for their own sales. Spotted Dog Winery will again be offering free samples of their favorite wines and Becky & Paul Pazkowski will return to continue to the music into the evening. The event is hosted by artists from the Two Twelve Arts Center (944-2787) and the SDMA. Everyone is welcome!!!
