Bozarts to celebrate second anniversaryWritten by Zach Davis | | firstname.lastname@example.org
In celebration of its two-year anniversary, Bozarts Fine Art and Music Gallery is calling for all artists and citizens to come celebrate on July 2 from 11 a.m. to midnight at its location on S. St. Clair Street.
“This is as much a celebration of two years in business as it is a celebration of you,” Bozarts Owner Jerry Gray said. “There are so many skilled and spirited people in this city that I have come to know as passionate comrades — it’s overwhelming. Please come down and participate, spectate and enjoy each other with one another.”
Gray said Bozarts hopes to have a large contingent of Toledo’s art community present to show off or sell their work. Artists are asked to bring anything suitable for outdoor display. Filmmakers will have a DVD projector provided to share their work and photographers can bring their prints.
Also encouraged to attend are live performances from musicians, poets and performance artists. Musicians are to play acoustic only and may bring down CDs and merchandise to distribute and sell.
Gray is also encouraging cooks to come down to share or sell food. A charcoal grill will be available for public use.
The celebration will have a picnic feel, so canopy tents for shade are welcome along with blankets, pillows, coolers and small tables.
Gray has asked however to not bring chairs or large tables. If you don’t plan on attending to perform or display your work, Bozarts encourages the public to come view some of what the artistic community has to offer in Toledo.
“If you do not have anything to sell or distribute you are just going to have to enjoy yourself and check out a very organic collection of culture in Toledo,” Gray said. “Make no mistake, this will be a sincerely awesome day.”
