OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, JAN. 12th, 5:30 – 7 PM
FREE and OPEN to the Public

The Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts offers a variety of art classes throughout the year. This exhibit, SHINE, highlights the work completed by students in these classes along with that of their instructors. The exhibit will also feature artwork by some of the SCCA administrative staff.

Working at the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts is always an adventure, meeting people from all walks of life. One day as I was walking in the hallway, I heard a beautiful tune coming from the piano. Though excited to see who was playing, I waited for him to finish, and before he could exit the building, I asked him his name and if he was a professional pianist. Surprisingly, Josiah Austin by day works for the City of Suffolk as a building inspector. He started taking piano lessons at the age of five. He used to play for his church but took a 10-year hiatus when he joined the military, and now he is getting back into his musical groove. The Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts invites you to the “SHINE” exhibition opening reception to hear and enjoy the melodic sounds by Josiah Austin. The reception is on Thursday, January 12th, from 5:30 pm-7:00 pm.
