The second in a series of summer events at Local Coffee of East Ridge is this Saturday night.
ARTbeat, is scheduled from 5 to 9 p.m. and will feature music from a jazz group from Ringgold, Georgia, and some vintage 70s and 80s rock and roll, said Danny Lance, who along with his wife, Debbie, own Local Coffee.
Music starts at 6 p.m. and admission is free.
The work of local painter Marguerite Anderson will be on display, as will the fine art photographs of Adam Massey. In addition, pottery thrown by Jane Galay will be on display. All these works of art will be available for purchase.
Lance said that last month’s ARTbeat event, featuring jazz from East Ridge’s own Kevin Roberts, drew about 200 people. “And that was with the air-conditioning not working,” Lance said. “It was 87 degrees in here.
Lance is optimistic that Saturday’s event – with a climate-controlled environment – will draw even more people to get a taste of the coffee shop, music and exposure to the arts.
Lance said the ARTbeat events will continue through the end of September. Events will be held the last Saturday of each month.
