Events in Central Virginia This Weekend: Jan. 4-6, 2008

It's a great weekend to get out and enjoy some local art...

- Tomorrow, Friday, January 4 is First Friday in Charlottesville. Click here to read all the events going on in the art community, from C-Ville Weekly.

I found this on NBC29's calendar:

- Sage Moon Gallery on the Charlottesville Downtown Mall presents Sarah Parks’ “Contours – Figures in Light”. Sarah Parks paints in the Classical Realist tradition with Impressionist elements. Refined brush strokes are softened by her natural palette. Superb attention to detail and surface texture, seen especially in her still life work, is evident in her figure painting as well. Graduated from Old Dominion University in Norfolk in both Art History and Studio Art, Parks brings a contemporary sensibility to classical compositions and subjects. Her figures are molded by the accurately captured interplay of light and shadow. The opening reception on Friday, January 4th from 5:30 until 8 and meet the artist! You can view her exhibit 7 days a week from 11am-6pm.

- Winter Nature Walk at Ivy Creek Natural Area on Sunday afternoon, January 6th at 2:00 pm for a winter nature walk. Search out the plants, fungi, insects, and animals that are still visible in the winter. We’ll learn about their life histories, traditional uses, and how they are adapted to survival under winter conditions. Meet at the kiosk next to the parking lot.

- Saturday Kid's Quest, the first Saturday of every month, 11am to Noon. $3.00 per program. Children 4 +. January 5: The Magic of Music

I found these at Albemarle Family's calendar:

- First Saturday Bird Walk with Leigh Surdukowski of the Monticello Bird Club on the first bird trip of the new year at the Ivy Creek Natural Area. Beginners welcome. Saturday at 7:30am. $free.

- How To Use A Telescope Class at the Science Museum of Virginia in Richmond. Unravel the technical words and see how you can get the most out of your equipment. Get tips on observing the day and night skies. Saturday 8am to Noon.

From the Charlottesville Senior Center's calendar:

- Mardi Gras Indians, Sunday, January 6th 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. Tribal Suits, Dance and Music in the Streets of New Orleans. Free and open to all!
