With January behind us, we are looking forward to a new month here in Portland. Now we start to notice the light lasting just a wee bit longer in the afternoons and the sun having a little more warmth. Here at the Pomegranate, we will have a long time before our high banks of snow completely disappear, but maybe the bulk of dramatic winter weather will be behind us now.
And always, the best part of new month, is First Friday Artwalk. Enter here for this month's participating venues. There is more good news...we are expecting highs in the 30's Friday and clear skies. Sounds like happy walking weather to me!
The Syliva Kania Gallery at 148 High Street is home to a cooperative of 18 artists in a setting that provides 360 degrees of dynamic artwork. They will be having live music and tell us that they are not just "another" gallery. Definitely worth a visit.
The Cygnet Gallery at 568 Congress Street will be sharing with us what their artists feel most passionate about. This energy filled contemporary gallery is host to a rotating selection of original paintings, sculpture and fine art furniture.
Acoustic Artisans at 1 Forest Avenue is a must see for the music lover and in particular, the stringed music lover. Here you can visit a collaborative string instrument workshop and actually see the work in progress. They make violins, violas and cellos, and also guitars and mandolins.
They will be featuring live music and light refreshments.
The Pomegranate has two rooms available for this Friday night, if you would like to come into town to soak up some art , have a great dinner while you are here and make a night of it! Please give the Pomegranate Inn a call at 207-772-1006 or as always, you may book online.
