October 14, The Manhattans featuring Gerald Alston

The Manhattans struck chart gold in 1973 with “There’s No Me Without You.” Then their biggest song was their March 1976 release “Kiss and Say Goodbye,” written by Blue Lovett and arranged/co-produced by Bobby Martin, a former member of the MFSB band of session musicians. The song quickly became a #1 chart-topper on both the U.S. Billboard Pop and R&B charts. The group found further success in March 1980 with the release of “Shining Star,” which received a Grammy Award. The group is celebrating 60 years of bringing the best of R&B to the masses. Tickets are available for purchase here.

October 30 – January 6, Camouflage and Coalescence Exhibit

This exhibition will be an introduction to Frank Mancino’s new body of work titled

“Camouflage and Coalescence.” Mr. Mancino’s use of a kaleidoscopic array of intense colors and

textures invites the viewer to enjoy a decorative “camouflage” of sensual layers. Proceeding this

“camouflage,’ it de-focuses and allows the viewer’s initial perception to “coalesce” into their own inner

visions and tensions. The result is color working both for and against each other to “fight nice.”

Admission is free for all ages.
