NEW PORT RICHEY - The Progress Energy Art Gallery's First Friday Art Strolls have been so successful that the gallery has decided to add something: a Second Friday Art Stroll.
The inaugural of this event will be from 4:30 to 9 p.m. today, with a performance of writer Ralph Annan's radio play, The Cookie Baker of Grand Street, at 8:15 p.m. just outside the gallery at 6231 Grand Blvd.
The February Fling will have a "romantic, Valentine's Day theme," according to Karren Tolliver, gallery director. Activities will take place in the downtown area, with the gallery open throughout the evening for patrons to view photography and art by Carol Gula, Wes Trigger, Gregory Colvin, Lorna Conley, Angela Taylor, Cheryl Molennor, Michelle Collins, Paula Showen, Sherry Stamback, Tolliver and quilt artist Elizabeth Harrison.
Artists and craftmakers will set up tables along Grand Boulevard adjacent to the gallery to sell one-of-a-kind works.
