Arts Night Out – March Edition
March 12, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
What do vintage threads, cryptids, horror-writing, and Art Deco woodworking have in common? They’re all going to be celebrated at the March edition of Arts Night Out. Join us on Thursday, March 12th, 6 pm – 9 pm at the Visitors Center at Heritage Station to celebrate the local arts scene. Huntington Fiction Factory and the Visitors Center will host author Michael Knost discussing Relational Influence. The Red Caboose will host a pop-up by Morgantown illustrator Liz Pavlovic Design and feature her work in the shop and Nomada Bakery will host a vintage clothing pop-up by After.Birth Vintage. Across the patio Sip Wine and Whiskey Bar will host an exhibition opening by woodworking duo Pattern Of Integrity. If you need to make some art yourself head down to Full Circle Gifts and Goods to carve your own ceramic tile. Heritage Station is located at 210 11th Street in the heart of downtown Huntington. Arts Night Out is always free and open to the public.
At 7 pm, Huntington Fiction Factory and Sheila Redling will host local author Michael Knost in the Visitors Center community room. Michael is a Bram Stoker Award®-winning editor and author of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and supernatural thrillers. He will be talking about Relational Influence in fiction writing and how it adds depth, realism, and credibility to every set piece – as well as character – in your story.
Nomada will host a vintage pop-up for the modern shopper. Ben of After.Birth Vintage will offer a carefully curated line of vintage clothing focuses on vintage tees. Nomada will also be open throughout the evening.
The Red Caboose is excited to host Liz Pavlovic. Her work has been in the shop since 2018, but this will be her first exhibition. “A lot of my work is inspired by experiences in West Virginia and Appalachia, but I’m always fascinated by the weird and mundane anywhere,” says Liz. “I’m drawn to things that are often overlooked, so I end up exploring a lot of food traditions, obscure monsters, and urban myths. I love digging deeper into obsessions and cliches, and often use wordplay and visual humor in my work.”
Amber and Brandon of Pattern of Integrity have created a series of woodworking pieces specifically for Sip’s space. Their colorful work is inspired by Art Deco design.
Noelle and Scott of Full Circle Gifts and Goods will host another fun night of tile-carving. Bring your own designs and ideas or use some of Noelle’s templates. Cost is $25 and time slots must be reserved in advance. Go to their event Carve Your Own Tile at Arts Night Out to reserve your spot.
Arts Night Out is a multidisciplinary arts event that occurs at Heritage Station in the heart of downtown Huntington the second Thursday of every month.
