This Thursday, the 19th from 6-8pm we will be having an artist reception for the guys from Drift.
They are the creative company that designed our new logo and developed the art979.com website for me.
It is a treat to have their work featured on the walls of the cafe. They did a special project for this show and they researched old signs and businesses from Bryan/College Station’s past and recreated them to honor our community.
Come out and meet Gavin, Martin & Spencer and ask them about how the pieces came to be. It is really on of my favorite shows to date.
Take a piece of true local art home with you!
