Looking for something to get into this weekend and avoid the hubbub of Christmas madness? Perhaps something which includes a good deal or twenty as well as some good tunes? This Friday and Saturday you’ll have an opportunity to do just that. You will also be supporting local artists and events, which means you can go to these types of things more often. This is what we call coming out on top. It feels good doesn’t it?
Jackson’s premiere pop-up gallery returns this December with over 20 local artists! And, as always, everything in the show is LESS THAN $100! Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to buy the best Christmas presents in the universe, or look out for number 1 and deck your own halls.
The event will take place in the Hangar at 140 Wesley Avenue in Midtown. The doors will open at 5 pm Friday and close at 10ish (or when the music ends). The doors will reopen at 2 pm Saturday and close finally at 10 pm Saturday night. The event is free to enter. Cold and hot beverages will be available.
Artists include: Carmen Lucero, Ginger Williams-Cook, Chrissy Valentine, Jaclyn Lewis, Ming Donkey, Peter Hammond, Leslie Galloway, Nikki Thomas, Suzanne Schmidle, Azha Sanders, Marsh Nabors, Justin Ransburg, Kiri O’Gwynn, Amy Clay, Whitney Grant, Catherine Lee, Joy Abedikichi, Cody Cox, Samantha Ledbetter, Nicole Stowe, Richard Stowe, Alli Bostrom, Ian Hanson, Wade Acuff, Emily Sabree, and Scott Allen.
And if amazing art isn’t enough to entice you, we also offer auditory bliss with a music line-up guaranteed to be unlike anything you’ve heard before:
Friday: DJ Young Venom kicks it off, playing into a set by the Vibe Doctors jazz trio, who will play their way into a set by DJ Brik a Brak.
Saturday: 5th Cox, 5th Child and Cody Cox, begin the night at 5, followed by The Jamie Weems Quintet.
This event is a holiday love note to the city of Jackson. Your support makes it possible each year. All of the money you spend goes directly to the artists and musicians (no commissions!) so that you can get something locally made and fantastic on any budget!
