Friday September 1 from 7 to 9 PM Gallery Opening

capen/weinstein eggshibit

with Music by the Capitol Hillbillies

Judith Capen spent the last five years creating an eggstrodinary collection

of eggshell art.  The pieces follow a trajectory from agony to tentative hope

and memory. She eggsqusitly manipulates each fragile shell, giving

new life to these disposable containers of life.


Robert Weinstein describes his lostglove collection of images and

artifacts less as art and more like archaeology and a narrative of loss.  “Sometimes they are so beautiful, I am compelled to take them home with me.” The stories told by lostgloves are only limited by imagination.

This eggshibit chronicles the last five years of their lives.

Closing Party on Saturday 9th from 7 to 9 PM

Proceeds to benefit the Corner Store.

Concert & CD Release Party with The Novel Ideas

The Novel Ideas are a country folk quintet of friends from the

great state of Massachusetts. Featuring the voices of three different songwriters,The Novel Ideas create a blend of pastoral, harmony driven, and plaintive Americana. In 2014 they released a 10" single "Lost on the Road", featuring two new songs and marking the band's first effort as a five piece. The following couple years have been spent touring nationally, writing, and recording as a band. Their latest release, St. Paul Sessions, was recorded live in an old church in their hometown. It features six unreleased songs, and aims to capture the raw energy of their live performance. Don’t miss these terrific young musicians!
