My pal Cara Modisett was part of the musical entertainment. She also talked about her new downtown show "Music After Midnight," which debuts soon (too late for me).^
The ArtView VIP Dinner tonight gave a marvelous preview of the city's first international art show, featuring artists from Roanoke's sister cities. The show runs Friday-Sunday at the Special Events Center (which I prefer to call the Special Events Garage, since it looks like one) and if what we saw tonight is any indication of the level of talent ... well, go see for yourself. It costs $8.
There are a number of local, regional and foreign artists taking part, but the spotlight is on the artists from Roanoke's in Russia, Poland, Korea, France and Brazil.
