The Algoma Book Corner will be joining the First Friday Art in Algoma festivities.
The Book Corner, 401 Third St. in Algoma, plans to open from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, July 6. The store is operated by Algoma Library Friends.
On the first Friday evening of every month, James May & Jabberwok Galleries, Clay on Steele, Steele Street Trading Company and Bella Luna’s Apothecary host a art walk on Steele Street. Music, artist receptions and other activities are often planned around the event.
This month, Bella Luna is hosting Ericka Berger, a 16-year-old Algoma High School student who creates dream catchers and other works of art. The reception features wine, cheese and free crystals for kids.
Clay On Steele is planning a Raku Fire and Gallery Night. For $10 and up, participants may glaze their own piece and take it home the same day. First come, first served while supplies last.
James May Gallery has a 5:30-8:30 p.m. reception for the artists in its July exhibition. Gabe Brown of Kingston, N.Y., “is utilizing observations from nature to create illustrations of an inner human landscape, striving to create a rich illusionary reality.” Adam Knoche of Richardson, Texas, “uses clay’s innate qualities to highlight the push and pull of human mechanical processes, and the heavy impression we impose on our environment.”
Steele Street Hops is featuring music by Levi Zeitler and Chris Rugowski from 7 to 10 p.m., and at Yardstick Algoma author Ted Prokash will read from his new novel, “Napawaupee County Blues,” with musical accompaniment by Casey Buhr. Best costume wins a free book.
Steele Street Trading will feature encaustic art by Wisconsin native Clare Jorgensen, and refreshments will be served. Amber’s Attic highlights signed and numbered prints from Door County artist Charles “Chick” Peterson. Cookies will be served.
