Thursday, November 5th, is a good night to head up to Allentown for a free night of art and/or jazz.
The Allentown Art Museum offers free admission to all their exhibits on Thursday evenings from 4 p.m. – 8 pm. Tonight, you can join a free docent-guided tour of the photography exhibit Jeffrey Becom: Colors of India at 6 p.m. Other exhibits currently on display include Steve Tobin: Cocoon Awakenings;
See the first new glass pieces made by internationally renowned Quakertown-based artist Steve Tobin in twenty years. Exhibited in a darkened space, these illuminated sculptures cast colored light onto their surroundings, creating what Tobin calls “projection paintings” that transform our experience of the gallery space. They will be installed with earlier glass works from the artist’s Cocoons series, metaphoric vessels that suggest transformation from body to spirit.
The Allentown JazzFest’s Center Stage FREE concert series will come to the High Gravity Lounge at the Allentown BrewWorks on Thursday, November 5th, at 8pm. The performance by Adam Niewood’s “Homage” Band will be the first AJF event ever hosted at the Allentown BrewWorks.
