Artists livening up evenings at Fort Gallery

Organizers at the Fort Galley want to start the month off with a bang, as well-known percussionist Rolo Preza performs at the gallery  Thursday.

Preza’s performance will be the first in a new series at the Fort Gallery, known as First Thursdays.

As the name implies, on the first Thursday of every month, artists, writers, poets and musicians will be invited to the Fort Gallery to play an evening set from 5 to 7 p.m.

Preza, originally from El Salvador, has toured throughout North America and Europe with his hybrid vocalist/percussionist performance.

Also in attendance at the first First Thursday will be Emily Thornton, a violinist who hails from Fort Langley. 

Kirstin Krimmel, whose works are currently on display at the gallery, will host an artist’s talk as well.

First Thursdays at the Fort Gallery are part of the gallery’s ongoing effort to encourage and support local contemporary artists.
