Second Saturday August 9 2008

It's late on Friday evening, I'm catching a bit of the Olympic opening ceremony, and.....I've been preoccupied with one of the many events taking place in Beacon tomorrow. Just scroll down a bit and you'll learn more about that.
Openings are happening as per usual are happening everywhere, quite nearly.
Given my televiewing tonight, we can start with Fovea Exhibitions Gallery which is opening an exhibit called Planet China with photos by Julien Chatelan, Alan Chin and Justin Guariglia. Aditionally, the gallery will be featuring coverage of the Olympics and holding special hours concurrent with the run of the Games. At dusk, Fovea Exhibitions, which has a new and fully functioning website with plenty of program information, will be continuing its monthy screening series in the lot on the corner of Cross and Main St. Bite sized treats by St. Clair will be on hand. Opening reception from 4-8pm.
