Third Thursday is a free, all ages community arts event and concert series, presented by the Active Artists Alliance and Jamestown Renaissance Corporation, taking place on the third Thursday of each month from May through September in Winter Garden Plaza (located on North Main St., right next to the Wine Cellar).
To help support the 2015 Third Thursday Concert Series, the Active Artists Alliance’s Bill Thomas says they are also conducting an online fundraising campaign at Kickstarter to help pay for the cost of the event to help it grow and get even better.
“Basically we’re just asking people who’ve enjoyed our events in the past to – if it’s within their means – chip in $5 or $10 or whatever they can afford,” Thomas told WRFA during a recent interview. “There’s reward levels where, rather than it being a ‘donation’ – you get something or what you give. So we’ve got some artist-designed T-shirts, postcards, prints, and things like that.”
Tonight’s Third Thursday event will run from about 6-9 p.m., with live original music by The Audience and Trip The Deuce.
A few local AAAlliance members will also be bringing their easels and paints out to the plaza and working on their paintings and other creations. Organizers say that any interested local artists and/or crafty folks should feel free to bring their materials down to the plaza, to work and network with others.
