You’re invited to a benefit for the South Pine Street City Farm, The Dig Kids Urban Farming program and the closing reception for “Pangea” on Saturday, May 28th, from 5-8 pm at The Storefront Gallery, 93 Broadway, Kingston.
Here’s how it works:
· A drawing will be held for “Aquifer”, the show favorite (attached). $10 to enter. Can’t make it to the event? You can enter the drawing through PayPal here at TheStorefrontGallery.com, bottom of the page.
· A third of all proceeds from the drawing and all other sales will go to the South Pine Street City Farm.
· Bring a dish to share for a potluck dinner out in the garden. Farmer Jesica Clark will speak to us about the City Farm, Dig Kids, and related projects.
The South Pine Street City Farm is a program of the Queens Galley in partnership with the Kingston Land Trust and Binnewater Ice Co. The ¼ acre farm provides fresh, “extremely” local produce to citizens and serves as a learning and training ground for participants in the “Cooking Matters” program at the Queens Galley. The City Farm’s mission is to grow farmers and farmland in our urban landscape and to provide an inspiring model for local food-based networks in other urban areas.
“Pangea” is a series of oil pastels by James Porter inspired by the art and culture of indigenous peoples. The artist and show are featured in the May 9th edition of HVBiz, a weekly Hudson Valley business magazine, and the forthcoming May 26th edition of the Kingston Times.
Come celebrate the local culture of art, food and community here in Kingston!
