First Thursdays on Main St. at S & S Art Supply

First Thursdays at S & S Art Supply Main St. Columbia, SC
is held the first Thursday of every month in conjunction with other Main St merchants as part of a monthly event to highlight the arts in Columbia and to give people an opportunity to see the art and business communities working together every month on Main St. Columbia, SC.

In Sept. 2010, at First Thursday in front of S & S Art Supply, I demonstrated painting with Montana Gold paints and Golden Acrylics to live music by three different musical acts: Keith Bates of REDD WYNE, the late Frank Whaley and the Jeff Bloom Band. I painted three paintings to the music and had a great time.

Note: one of the paintings is pictured above. You can hear music by Redd Wyne, if you click here.
