Art Design & Dine adds a creative jolt to downtown Cheyenne

The Art Design & Dine Art Tour happens tomorrow evening, Thursday, July 14, 5-8 p.m., in Cheyenne.

During this very fine local event, art venues open their doors to anyone interested in browsing and possibly buying art in a friendly atmosphere.

Participating galleries:
Participating food venues include Suite 1901, the Laramie County Public Library Cafe and Ruby Juice.

AD&D is two years old now and getting better all the time. Some great shows for July, including:
Clay Paper Scissors presents watercolors, prints, two kinds each of ceramics and tote bags! This show features Amy Misle, Amy Iribarren, Kandice Starbuck, K.K. Hamblin, Meggan Stordahl and Steve Schrepferman!
This month will feature live music and literature at two locations:

The Fiddlers on the Range (the Bob Mathews family fiddlers) will be at DeSelms Fine Art from 6-7:30 p.m and local writer Mike Shay (that's me) and will be at Clay Paper Scissors Gallery & Studio from 5-6 p.m. I will read excerpts from my work. I rehearsed with my ukelele accompanist Linda Coatney Tuesday night but, on Wednesday, she was called out of town on a family emergency. She will be replaced with a hologram.

It's a little unusual to stage a reading in a locale where everyone is coming and going. But I will come up with something appropriate.

Thanks to the Cheyenne Arts Council for providing the entertainment. More performances will enliven future AD&D events. AD&D provides another jolt of energy and creativity to downtown Cheyenne. The Lights On! Project is providing another needed jolt to downtown, so is the new construction. And a big welcome to the Morris House Bistro and its Carolina Low County Cuisine. Can't have enough innovative eateries in the downtown area.

Don't forget that the Cheyenne Old-Fashioned Summer Melodrama launches its 2011 season Thursday night. My wife Chris and I will be volunteering at the Atlas Theatre. Come on down, buy a ticket and prepare to be interactively entertained. We have beer too!
