Railroad Earth—ATL says
We are delighted to show our neighbors and friends an amazing evening iron pour demonstration and an afternoon of cyan printmaking and music. Special screening of the original Railroad Earth filmette, scored by George Trotter.

Singer/songwriter Neil Fried will open with a mini-set for giant marimba player Chris Gravely at dusk, who will be playing his piece "Life," with an accompanying film. Gravely is the first artist we recorded in our studio this year. The smelting will happen at dark and stay tuned for a special surprise at the end by new RRE House Band rRETRAIN, (Neil Fried and Nicole Shashoua and Co., and starring Mikey the Little Prince of Railroad Earth!)

*LIMITED NUMBER OF SAND MOLDS AVAILABLE FOR SALE TO CARVE, so to be totally fair, a raffle will be held. Each admission will receive a number and we will have the drawing at 7pm and reveal the lucky 20 artists! Price is $15 per mold.

Be not dismayed; everyone gets to make cyanotype prints, and everyone gets a one-of-a-kind handmade party favor Artyfact to keep!

A few select artists will be featured upstairs, including Neil Fried, Scott Childs, and Nicole Shashoua, along with some works for sale, and please visit "the Retro Room," for travelling to the past!

Main show is at sunset but doors open at 5 for children and earlybirds. There will be a see-saw and sand table, little cars, water balloons, and this is when we will do the cyanotype prints, (first type of photography!), which need to dry in the sun. It will also be great weather for visiting the creek.

$10 suggested donation at door.
More details to come.
Plan to tune in to 89.3FM on Sunday, May 7th at 9pm to hear us on Harlon Joye's radio show!

Finally, it is Armed Forces Day, and whether or not you are pro military, I think we can all agree it is a hard and sacrificial job to do to serve the country in this way, so it just seems appropriate to do our little part to acknowledge the holiday by sharing this little history link. Thank you to all who have done these brave and terrifying things in an attempt to keep civilians free and safe:
