    POSTPONED – Opening Reception for Smorgasbord

    It’s like a heat wave, and it’s much to hot for art. Can’t keep from cryin’, not even for art. The A/C at Studio 659 is on the fritz and it’s just unbearably hot in there. We will be closed Friday 6/29 and Saturday 6/30. The Opening Reception for Smorgasbord will be rescheduled once we the weather calms down. Visit www.in211.org if you need help beating the heat. Check on your neighbors and keep your pets cool and indoors with lots of water to drink. Be safe!
