The Jefferson Exchange

First Friday Arts For A Smoky August

People and puppets share the stage in "Avenue Q" at Oregon Cabaret Theatre.

It's been a bumpy few weeks for the arts world.  Wildfire smoke has forced cancellations of outdoor plays at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and forced the Britt Orchestra indoors. 

But there's a lot of summer left, and a lot of great arts events planned for stages and galleries across this wide region. 

We get a list of the events in our monthly First Friday Arts segment.  You can listen and make plans, or you can call with details of an arts event near you... just call 800-838-3760 during the live airing of the show, Friday between 8 and 8:30 AM.  From sculpture to ska, it's all fair game.
