The First Street Studios was packed 2 Saturday nights back for the opening of the SALVAGE Art show, featuring works made with salvaged and recyclable materials. The show runs through April 26th and its closing reception will feature a Fashion Show. For more information, see flyer at the end of this small sampling of truly eclectic creations.

To reach the outdoor area where live music and food were served, you had to cross through a gallery of works by mostly unidentified artists. I found out this gold print was by Francisco Alvarez, one of First Street Studios' co-owner, because I asked!
