Now comes Autumn – undoubtedly the most beautiful time of year in Harper’s Ferry! This month will be a pretty exciting one for Steam at Harper’s Ferry. There are two events to which we want to draw your attention.
Gallery Exhibit Opening – “Steampunk Leisure” – September 22, 2012
We’ve been pleasantly surprised with the enthusiasm for the steampunk-themed exhibits, so these themed exhibits will continue as long as they are enjoyed. This exhibit starts on September 22, 2012 and goes through November 18, 2012. Artists interested in submitting work for the exhibit have until September 7 to do so. Please see the website under the tab “Call to Artists- Exhibit ‘Steampunk Leisure’ –September 22 – November 18, 2012.”
Inaugural Event – Arts-Related Business Series – September 29, 2012
On September 29, we are introducing an arts-related business series. There are two parts. The first part is something we’ve nicknamed “Shameless Steam” and we are looking for arts-related businesses and professionals who want to come and promote their art work or their art-related businesses at the event. The second part of the event will feature guest speakers. At this inaugural event, Cynthia Gayton (owner of Steam at Harper’s Ferry as well as a practicing attorney, author and university professor) and Larry Gillick (multimedia producer, New Media Evangelist, and former Shenandoah University digital media professor) will speak. Cynthia will make a presentation about how to protect fictional characters (literary and illustrated). Larry will discuss business and promotional issues facing artists and other creatives. There will be some time set aside for discussion, so we are looking forward to audience input. The event will be held from 4 – 6 pm. Light refreshments will be served. There is a $15 fee for attendees if received in advance, $25 at the door. You can register here.
Thank you for your support! We look forward to seeing you soon.
