On Friday, Aug. 2, Clay-Glass-Metal-Stone Cooperative Gallery will be breaking all records, and then making art out of them.
Several hundred of those old vinyl records no one plays anymore wandered into the gallery one day. A dozen of the gallery’s artists pounced on them, making them into unique and unusual works of art. The gallery will serve its usual gallery feast from bowls formed from these discs. This event takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. and is free to the public.
Studio Dance of Lake Worth’s Michael Puccio will teach swing dancing in the streets during the event. Dance to the tunes of the ’60s and ’70s from the records not broken. The section of J Street in front of the gallery will be closed between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. for this fun event.
Poutine Dog, the Canadian hot dog restaurant next door to the gallery, will serve hot-diggity dogs all evening long.
Art, food and dancing in the streets is what J Street is becoming. Join in the fun. “Evenings on the Avenue” are offered every first and third Friday, and all events are free to the public.
On Friday evening, Aug. 16, Craig McInnis of Jerry’s Artarama will offer free art lessons using the remaining records to create one-of-a-kind paintings. This will be part of a special event featuring four of Clay-Glass-Metal-Stone’s newest artists.
Clay-Glass-Metal-Stone Cooperative Gallery is sponsored by the Flamingo Clay Studio, a nonprofit arts organization, whose mission is to provide affordable studio and gallery space for three-dimensional artists.
The gallery is located at 15 South J St. in downtown Lake Worth. Hours are Sunday through Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Gallery openings are the first and third Friday of each month from 6 to 9 p.m. with many special events in-between.
