“two red chairs” at the SSAA gallery on Friday night and a Lake Michigan surf padding and kayaking regatta on Saturday in Michigan City; Lake Effect jazz band finale and Senior PGA wants you!
Friday at SSAA Gallery in Michigan City: “two red chairs” opens tomorrow night at 5 at the Southern Shore Art Association Gallery. This is a collage they are calling “intersection of the varied work of two artists,” Richard Pociask, an award-winning multimedia artist, and M.T. Carey, a photographer who works with black and white images. The exhibit is part of the very fun Michigan City First Friday program on Franklin Street. The gallery is open Fridays through Sundays from 12-5 and the “two chairs” exhibit will be on display through September 29th.
"two red chairs" is a collage of parts of Richard Pociask's painting and T.M.Carey's photograph, inspired by the same two red chairs.
It Doesn't Get Much Cooler Than This: Ride the Wave Regatta is in it's sixth year already. The event, organized by the Northwest Indiana Paddling Association, is for surf skiers and kayakers who can chose either a 19.3 marathon or an 8-mile course. The longer race begins at 10 am at Marquette Park in Gary and ends at Washington Park in Michigan City. If you are doing the short course you will be leaving at 10:30 am headed to Beverly Shores from Washington Park in Michigan City. Spectators are welcome, although if you are launching at Washington Park there is a fee of $7 per car to park.

Harbor Shores Seeks Marshals for Hole #18: The 2014 Sr. PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid is back and looking for volunteers to work the 18th Hole. The $130 fee includes a uniform, weekly grounds pass, a round of golf at Harbor Shores and all the fun of being an insider at the tournament. For more information you can visit the web site, but I would just go to the Harbor Shores Clubhouse and have a delicious hamburger on the patio.
