ART SALE AN ONGOING 'ALTERNATIVE' ATTRACTION

0

Feb. 7, 2002 – The art on sale sold well but didn't sell out at last weekend's "Friday Night Alternative," so look for more best buys along with live music, good company and complimentary wine, cheese and crackers again this Friday.
In fact, "Alternative" organizer and Color of Joy art gallery/boutique owner Corinne Van Rensselaer says, "We had such a good response to our art rummage sale that we are continuing it for the month of February. We have a sale display set up outside the store with originals and prints. The prices are great!"
Meanwhile, the music, also goes on.
As is so often the case, last week's gathering on the broad Marlin Deck at American Yacht Harbor set some musical precedents. Fans welcomed a couple of first timers who over the years have played at just about every venue around on the St. Thomas jazz scene — pianist Roan Creque and bass man Cliff Finch.
Whoever drops by this Friday from 6 to 8 p.m., house hosts "Sunshine" Sally Smith at the keyboard and "Mr. B" on drums will be there to welcome them.
"Let us lift your spirits" has become Van Rensselaer's standard invitation. Each week brings new opportunities for doing just that, some spontaneous, some planned. For next week, on Feb. 15, she is planning a new, long-promised "Alternative" attraction — poetry reading.
"Poets and readers, please contact me at 775-4020," she says.
