That’s right. I’m leaving the warm, lovely bosum of Aggie Central Station, where together we have done some awesome, beautiful things over the past year or so.

So, I’m celebrating all that awesome by having one of my favorite local bands The Field Day Jitters play, as well as one of my favorite regional bands, Not A Planet.

Also, there will be a not-so-secret opening act that will be a lot of fun. :)

Let’s come burn the ole girl down one more time before I head off to the West.

Art Show Opening At Radina’s: MAC Oil Studio

When:
April 5, 2014 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Where:
Radina's, 616 North Manhattan Avenue, Manhattan, KS, 66502, United States

You and everyone you know are invited to the Opening Reception for the MAC Oil Studio’s month-long show at Radina’s Coffeehouse in Aggieville.

The opening is this Saturday evening from 7-830pm. Stop by to check out the paintings and talk to the people who made them – we’ll be wearing nametags!

Free coffee and cookies have been graciously donated by Radina’s for show attendees.
It’s casual attire, so honestly, you have no excuse not to go.
Bring your friends. See you there!

The Manhattan Arts Center’s Oil Studio is a group of local artists who meet weekly to talk about art, help each other with our work, and of course, PAINT!

Though all of our work is created with oil paints, our paintings range from landscapes to abstract, from serene to jubilant, from intricately-detailed to emotionally-gestured.
Come to the opening and get a taste of what we do!
(please do not eat the paintings)

Most works on display will be for sale (to be collected at/after the show’s end) – if interested, please get in touch with the artist directly.
Can’t make it to the opening? That’s ok! The work will be on display for the entire month of April, and artist contact info will be listed under each piece.

If you’re interested in joining the Oil Studio, feel free to talk to one of us during the opening, or just show up at the MAC’s annex building, Thursdays from 630-830pm.
