“Newburgh Last Saturdays started out with a Fantasy Photobooth to benefit the Hudson Valley SPCA Trap Neuter Release program at Space Create. For a donation you could get a photo taken in costume. Marc Anthony and Cleopatra were seen at 2 Alices Coffee Lounge, which stayed open till 9pm. There was also a live band and art exhibit going on at the same time in the front lounge of Space Create. Brief Encounters by Corey Pane, all his portraits are painted on cardboard. Next door at Teran Studios was the Vibes art exhibit and happening. It was packed, multiple artists, face and body painting and a giant vibe catcher made out of string! The after party started at 9pm with a DJ and glow in the dark go go dancers, everyone was glowing, black lights were set up all around the entire space. Around the corner at Global Recycling, the art exhibit Raw Reflections, was a collaboration with Marist College and Plant Steel Creative. Photo portraits of various artists incorporating recycled metal & steel, were on display. Just a few doors up the street at The Wherehouse, The Reddan Brothers Band were playing live rock and blues, a great way to end the night with a beer and a bite.”
The next Last Saturday will be April 25, 2015.
