“It was another happening night for February’s Newburgh Last Saturdays! SUNY Orange joined in with improvisational theater and art exhibits by local artists, featuring Newburgh’s own, Daniel Giordano.
Over at Teran Studio things were jumping with multi-active exhibit “What’s Love Got To Do With It”, curated by artist, Amanda J Light. Starting at 1pm with an open mic poetry reading leading into Love Letters from Anna West. Later DJ MissDeezy was spinning records, ending it all up with live music by Das Super Gruppen.
Meanwhile, 2 doors away at Space Create, local writer and artist, Gregory Newson, presented his illustrated book “Uncle T and the Uppity Spy”. If you missed it, there will be a closing reception next Sunday from 3-6pm
In between all of this you could take a Pilates class, get a chair massage or take swing dance lessons at APG Pilates to limber up for your night out. At The Wherehouse the jazz was cool, with the Eric Person Trio. The beer was flowing and the food was hot, they have a new menu! Over at Newburgh Brewing, Brian Tice and John Bendy were playing live. Caffe Macchiato was open late for hot coffee, treats and conversation. Winding it all down with the after after Red Party to benefit Blissful Strays at 188 Liberte, where Newburghers go to meet new people and dance it out with DJFreaky Frankie. 188 Liberte is still taking donations through the week, Facebook message them to donate.”
She must have made the rounds early…there were hundreds of people out enjoying readings and art at Teran Studios, dancing at 188 Liberty, etc It gets better and better. Thanks, Lisa!
