Art Under the Stars
I was thrilled the Pensacola Little Theatre asked me to display for Gallery Night. The Cultural Center is located just across the street from our largest gallery- Quayside, and the Pensacola Museum of Art (pictured below).
27 original Jill Berry works were happy to escape the confines of the studio & hang out together downtown for the evening.
A Navy man, liking the ~boats~ of course.
Navy man's wife, Connie, who runs the Theatre. And my new Navy/Theater friends. That's Louisville on the end. I had to ask, "Are you from Louisville", when I saw his shirt. "No, my name is Louisville." Where ever they are from, suffice it to say, the Navy has brought people here from all over.
This is not the Real Elvis... and I know that because, when I was 17 my Dad took me to see the REAL Elvis in concert in... Louisville! (This one, busting a move in the middle of the street: sing-a-gram-elvis!) Inside the Theatre was a performance of "All Shook Up", which was all sold-out.
& the zombie parade... it was getting late... but I think this was real!
