Join us for a reception and launch of a new art show featuring the book-inspired collages of Dean Nimmer. We'll have collages, art cards, books and tools of the trade and more from the artist.
At 7 p.m. the artist will give a talk on his work.

Book Moon @ Art Walk
Join Us for Art Walk, every First Friday of the month. Sometimes we'll have readings, art openings, music, or some kind of event — sometimes we'll just have cookies and sparking water, and a place to sit for a few minutes surrounded by books, books, books. Join our email list if you want to hear more about those other events.
