The Art YOU Are open mic

The inaugural The Art YOU Are open mic night went very well. I think there was 20–25 people there, and a few others that trickled through because the gallery remained open during the event. Some great poetry was shared, two people showed off their vocal skills, and we were all treated a black light show as one of the artists had accidentally discovered that her work glowed in the dark.

I read the first scene of The Tarot Cafe Novel: The Wild Hunt—and I'm very grateful to everyone for their attention and support. Couldn't have asked for a nicer place to warm-up to public readings.

Things I learned:

1) Water on hand.

2) Next time, try to look up from the page.

The next open mic night will be sometime in January, and all creative types in the area are welcome to attend. Even if you don't want to participate, we appreciate the support. Please help Christina and Megan create an artist community. Don't forget we have a facebook group now.
