October 4th through the end of November
Brian’s watercolor illustrations and paintings are beautiful, detailed, but incredibly atypical of the work you might expect from a watercolor artist. Instead of painting landscapes or still live, Brian’s paintings attempts to engage the viewers on a more thought-provoking (and sometimes humorous) level, asking questions about humanity in relation to society, nature, and the universe. He’s not sure if any of it is ultimately successful, but enjoys the struggle nonetheless. To preview Brian’s work or read his blog, visit his website!
December 6, 3-8pm on Main Street, CCAH, & the Third Street Center
Usher in the Holiday Season in Carbondale on First Friday, Dec. 6! Santa will be visiting the Third Street Center Round Room from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. to consult with the little ones. Bikers (with helmets!) are welcome to come to the Third Street Center at 4pm to decorate their bikes for the Parade of Bike Lights that escorts Santa to Main Street at 5pm. The time honored traditional tree lighting ceremony will take place at Weant and Main Street at 5:15pm, with the help of CRES choir carolers. While enjoying the festivities on Main, stop by Main & to warm up by the bonfire with free hot chocolate! Santa will return to the Third Street Center from 6:15pm to 8 p.m. and CCAH’s holiday show, Deck the Walls, will be open for holiday shopping!
Bringing artists, business owners, and Carbondale visionaries together to address issues related to creating stronger connectivity and vibrancy in our community.
