Play Locally: Winter Circus, Photo Exhibit, Music, and More

 Winter Magic Trunk Show


Join us for the Opening Reception of
Snapshot: Inventing the Everyday
Tomorrow night- Dec. 15th

Within the history of photography, snapshots have existed as an amateur sub-genre of fine art photography. But today the age of sophisticated camera phones and social media, when families and friends gather around a computer rather than a photo album, some are reconsidering the snapshots artistic value.                                                                                                                       
We invite you to join us for the opening reception of IALS's first photography exhibition, curated by two of our wonderful contributors, Brooke Herbert Hayes and W. Tanner Young! Stop by and check-out our new storefront, and enjoy some seasonal Revolution Brewing beer and delicious snacks by Ciao & Paper Moon.
