“Music to Your Eyes”

November 2, 2018 - November 24, 2018

Crossroads, Robert Johnson by Ken Pease Now on exhibit until November 24. Ken Pease has been listening to loud music, and painting colorful pictures for more than 20 years. He is inspired by great music and musicians, his family, and stuff that makes folks laugh and feel good about this crazy world we all live in. Ken uses acrylic paint on repurposed wood scraps, cabinet doors, drawers, and a variety of found objects. The “Music to Your Eyes” exhibit features tributes to some great musicians, and some of Ken’s characters, including the Blues Hounds and Slappy Green. The other work focuses on positive vibrations: art that makes you feel good about yourself and the world.

TICKETS SALES FOR THIS EVENT ARE NOW CLOSED. Check back here next year for the 6th Annual Soul Food Sampling!   Food is important to every culture Ingredients, and traditions that define procuring, preparing, and consuming food differ as cultures develop over time and places. Soul Food Sampling will include a brief discussion about the history and traditions of soul food, the recollections of residents of the former New Town neighborhood where the St. Luke and Odd Fellows Hall is located, and samplings of traditional soul foods. Enjoy great food as we explore the origins of this cuisine that developed through the imposed privations of enslaved people as they persevered and prospered by creating “food families.” The remarkable cooks who devised the cuisine not only put food on the table but also made it taste good! Today, “soul food” describes certain tastes and ingredients as well as the traditions of survival, community cohesion, and caring family relationships. Guests will enjoy typical soul food in an atmosphere of lively conversation, informative discussions, and excellent examples of this truly American cuisine. Sponsored by the Virginia Tech Foundation, the merchants of the North End Center, Downtown Blacksburg, Inc., Champs, and Blue Ridge Catering & Wikiteria.

WE STILL HAVE A FEW TICKETS LEFT for the March 6th Scotch Tasting!Buy tickets now The Scotch Hunters are back Steve Janosik and Don Creamer have been close friends since the mid-1980's. They both developed an interest in single malt scotches, which eventually grew from a hobby to a passion. Before they knew it, they were cataloging their tasting notes and tracking their preferences to share their extensive research with others. In 2001, they created www.scotchhunter.com which now includes more than 300 single-malt scotch reviews. Steve and Don will lead a tasting session in the beautifully restored Alexander Black House & Cultural Center. They will introduce five distinctive malts from different regions of Scotland, selected especially for this event. Hors d'oeuvres will also be provided. Participants can expect to gain an appreciation of the rich variety of tastes in all single malts.
