Trinity Arts - LIVE!
A fun evening of excellent music, top notch poetry and friends.
LET'S RECAP: What a great show in February. It seemed just a like the whole place became one giant, comfy, intimate living room! The performers/artists included house favorites: Faint Image (Richard & Vicki Blackwell), Uryon Adams and Gary Brown along with our Featured Artists: Cory Denson, David Hooten and a Double Special appearance of Ron Davison as he accompanied Faint Image on percussion and was our Poet for the evening. Wonderful visual art by photographer Chip Redd filled our Electronic Gallery all night. Videopoetry via Rant & Rave added just the final touch to a complete a full evening of entertainment. A very SPECIAL THANK YOU goes out to Julie Poe who stepped in as our highly entertaining HOST for the evening. Hard to imagine such a monthly venue... for FREE, isn't it.
And... Thank YOU. It takes so much work from a lot of people to make each show possible. Your attendance makes it all worthwhile. Every single person who shows up to our shows, perhaps even bringing friends along, is deeply appreciated. Thank you to everyone for coming out to support these artists with your presence.

Why Do We Do This?
This is a wonderful, fun-filled event designed to accomplish a few things. First: We love to bring great artist related efforts and causes to the public's attention. You really do need to know of these efforts and causes and the ways you can personally support them. Originally, we promoted and raised support for the Trinity Arts Conference ( http://www.trinityartsconference.com/ ). They are perhaps the most unique arts community you will ever encounter however, they have recently determined to take the year of 2010 off; call it a Year of Jubilee. So, each month we are now promoting and educating folks regarding a different, worthwhile effort, cause or project, typically involving one or more artists within our own community. (What a great idea, eh?) In coming months, be prepared to learn of the some of the most interesting and "support worthy" things happening within and around our arts community!
Second: We are all about building and growing community. When you arrive... you become family. We offer amazing and very diverse artists an excellent venue where they can share their creations with a diverse, constantly expanding, attentive and appreciative audience; often one they would not typically find on their own. What a great combination.
And... we offer you the most fast-paced and diverse monthly venue for stimulating arts entertainment that you will find in the metroplex. Constantly changing, every show is designed to hopefully introduce you to something new. It is the PERFECT mid-week complement to your week-end arts schedules.
What a deal. Bring a date, spouse, family, friend or total stranger. If you desire, please feel free to just drop whatever you may want into the "Mailbox at the Door" for the causes you want to support (a tip jar for the house band will also be available). Please come out and support these artists who are volunteering their time and talents for this most excellent event.
Your being there... makes our night!
