First Friday, July 1st @ J. R. Kortman: Cool art by Leslie Arbetman, music from Michael Bugler's iPod & Dennis Horton @ the Kortman Gallery Bar

It's the start of long holiday weekend this First Friday, so begin celebrating the founding of our great nation with shopping, art, music, and drinks at J.R. Kortman Center for Design and the Kortman Gallery. Enjoy the City Market and complete your shopping at J.R. Kortman which will be open 'til 9pm. Then relax and meet friends upstairs in the Kortman Gallery where you can see the cool art of Leslie Arbetman surrounded by the music from the unedited, random playlist of Michael Bugler's iPod...and of course, Dennis Horton is back at the Kortman Gallery Bar to keep the fireworks going! The Bar will be open until the last person leaves.
Hope to see you this Friday...the start of a great 4th of July weekend!
