THE ARTS, IN FULL BLOOM
The lower-level gallery of ML by Maria Luisa has hosted a number of arts-related events over the past couple of years. There have been nights filled with music, others with spoken word. And many have been devoted to the visual arts. Some presented works of simple beauty, others pieces that truly made you think. We’ve enjoyed it all, especially the opening receptions that gather the most interesting people who come together to chat, sip a glass of wine and simply appreciate the wealth of talent in our own backyard. Combine the best of those previous events with the enthusiasm of Nyack’s growing “First Friday” series and that gives you a hint of what a lovely – and lively – event we hosted Oct. 4 as our latest edition of the monthly themed nights. You may already know – and enjoy – Maria’s sponsorship of the Local Arts Index, a regular feature on the Nyack News & Views site.
