Music, art and new exhibit at First Friday

T ake a shot and enjoy some art at this months’ First Friday on June 7.

For the Pember Library and Museum’s culinary component this time around, Edward’s Liquor will be offering free samples of flavored whipped cream shots, in addition to the glasses of wine they typically sell.

The Pember will also have an acoustic guitarist adding to the ambiance of the local art that will be on display. The three featured artists offer a variety of work for community members to enjoy.

Watercolorist Betty O’Brien, who maintains a teaching facility in The Shirt Factory and offers a variety of watercolor classes and workshops, will be showing her work.  Dolores Thomson, who has been creating with clay for more than 20 years, will display her pottery, officials said. Her work has been shown in galleries and art fairs throughout upstate New York.

And Debby Loomis, a fabric artist, will be showing her quilted handbags.

Nearby at the Slate Valley Museum will be the opening of a new exhibit celebrating immigrants from the Carpatho-Rusyn Mountains.

“Preserving a Heritage, Building a Community: The Carpatho-Rusyn People of the Slate Valley” will look at the experiences of these people in this area at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century and how it influenced local culture.

During First Friday, the museum will also unveil its newly digitized oral histories, which will allow visitors to see and hear interviews with community members about their firsthand experiences.

As always, the event runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at both museums. For more information call the Slate at 642-1417 or the Pember at 642-1515.
