Ever wonder what the Inkers' Administrative Director does besides forward you emails? Well, here's your chance to find out! This Arts Alive, (tomorrow) will be the opening of the Ink People's Dance Scene Photography Exhibition which is a project that I've been working on for the past year.

Be sure to come check it out 6-9pm at our new gallery space in Old Town: 325 Second St. Suite 203- it's above the Siren's Song Tavern. In addition to the framed pieces there will be a projected slide show of the complete show of 100 amazing photographs, along with 5 live artists, and a silhouette stage with performances.

It is our second annual show that will feature back to back performances starting at 4pm and continuing on into the evening. We have a couple more openings for dances so all choreographers, get your applications in!
