First Friday Arts For The Month Of Blooming Flowers

Olivia Millerschin plays the Grants Pass Museum of Art on May 8, Ashland's Brickroom on May 10.

The days are longer, the weather is (mostly) warmer, and the outdoor concert season is not far away.  About a month away, it seems. 

But there are plenty of arts events to see, hear, and celebrate in May.  And we provide airtime to talk about them in our First Friday Arts segment. 

It's what the Web calls "user-generated content"... we open the phone lines at 800-838-3760 and invite people to call with details on events large and small, on stage or in galleries, in the month of May.  Listen for details of events near you, or grab a phone and call them in.

This month we heard from:

~Enclave Studios in Ashland, about art exhibits.

~Oregon Cabaret Theatre in Ashland, touting "Once" and a pair of one-night shows.

~Liberty Arts in Yreka, with news of their shows and the Yreka "Art Hops."

~Rogue Valley Symphony, featuring its family concert.

~Camelot Theatre in Talent, presenting "Barefoot in the Park" and "Spotlight on The Eagles."

~Britt Festivals, with events in June.

~Meadowlark Comic Con, coming to Medford May 12.

~Grant Pass Museum of Art, with art and music (Olivia Millerschin).

~Zev Levinson, with a book reading in Arcata on May 11.
