SEPTEMBER First Friday

Every First Friday of the month downtown Juneau is buzzing with fresh art on display in galleries, restaurants, cafes, and other local businesses. Receptions are held, drinks and hors d’oeuvres are served to the public.

Here at the Juneau Arts & Culture Center (JACC) we host a reception from 4:30pm-7pm at our JAHC Gallery for our most recent artists work on display.

Now showing at the JAHC Gallery:

“Celebrating 30 Years with
Juneau Jazz & Classics”

jjc sep opening poster 2This year, to launch our 30th Anniversary season, we have a new and very special celebration planned: a First Friday Gallery Opening at the Juneau Arts & Culture Center, welcoming the entire community to share their own recollections of Jazz & Classics Festivals past while looking ahead to the future. Our friend and cellist Zuill Bailey will be at the Gallery Opening on September 4th from 5 to 6:30 pm for a Meet & Greet. On display will be memorabilia from the three decades of the Festival, and JJ&C will be unveiling their new logo for the 30th Year Anniversary, designed by local artist Tanna Peters.

We hope you’ll join us for First Friday at the JACC, as well as “Three Men and a Baby Grand” on Sunday, September 6th, featuring violinist Benjamin Breen, pianist Awadagin Pratt, and of course cellist Zuill Bailey. The performance begins at 7 p.m., also at the JACC, and is a benefit for our 2016 Festival. Juneau Jazz & Classics truly has a stellar season ahead, and this promises to be a wonderful weekend of new memories in the making, as we all tune up together.
