October’s Fat Friday Trolley Hop lands just two days before Halloween – Clifton Art Supply / Spot 5 Art Studio will be ready for fun! Local artists will be setting up booths in the space between Clifton Art Supply and Pottery Rowe. This is a great chance to pick up original pieces of art while supporting the local arts community.

Also, as you may recall, Spot 5 had a call for entries for their Haunted Headquarters Exhibit in which everyone was invited to decorate a Styrofoam wig head with fluorescent paint. The show opened October 18 (you can come by and see it any time during business hours) – but the artists reception will be October 29 starting at 6 PM.  Everyone is invited.  The entries are a lot of fun and just the thing to get you psyched up for Halloween!

New Classes Forming – The Spot 5 Press will have a printmaking class starting Wednesday, October 27th. Rob Firestone will be teaching the finer points of linocutting – just in time for the holidays! There is still time to join the class if you are interested, click here.

Laurie has also opened a new studio painting class on Fridays 12:30 – 3:30.  The class is already filling quickly – if you are interested, give her a call or visit the Spot 5 website.
