Each last Friday of the month, Hillsborough holds an arts walk event centered around the downtown area. A free concert performance takes place on the old courthouse lawn. People walk along Churton Street, visiting galleries (like the Eno Gallery) and eating at one of the local dining establishments. It’s a most enjoyable start to the weekend.
This Last Friday (July 27th) offers some additional reasons one might choose to visit downtown Hillsborough (and vicinity), if your agenda didn’t include some artsy fun already.
One – An Evening with the Jazz Loft Project at Daylight (121 W. Margaret Ln., Ste. D, 6:30 – 9:30 pm). A multimedia screening, along with select audio recordings will engage photography fans at the Daylight Project space. If you missed the Jazz Loft Project exhibit at The Nasher, you have a chance to make up for that oversight.
Two – Another photography event (what can I say, I’m a fan of the medium) entitled “90 Plus”, portraying in images and essays self-sufficient and vivacious 90-somethings (we should all aspire to be a future subject in this exhibit). Visit Skylight Gallery for the exhibit’s opening reception between 6 and 9 pm.
Three – The last keg of Mystery Brewing’s Six Impossible Things Chocolate Breakfast Stout will be tapped during the Friday “temporary taproom” at the brewery (437 Dimmocks Mill Rd, Suite 41). Also stopping in for the last keg on Last Friday are food trucks The Parlour (beer float, anyone?) and Pie Pushers (everyone likes beer with pizza). Stop in between 6 and 11 pm and raise a pint.
