(For those of you who are not from Rochester or who have not heard of the Hungerford, it is an old warehouse type building in which hundreds of local artists have set up their studios. They hold many events throughout the month, but the most popular and well known is 'First Friday'. Every first Friday of the month, most of the artists open their studio doors to the public so you can meet the artist, purchase some incredible creations, and perhaps get to see the artisan at work.)

Besides the brilliant art all around, you could also enjoy a complimentary drink and yummy hors d'oeuvres, an interactive piece of art they want you to contribute to, and on many occasions, they even bring in live music.
They happen to be having an event on Saturday to celebrate Mary's birthday. (one of the gallery owners) and they graciously invited me to set up my wares at the shin dig. When I got there on Saturday, the whole place had been decorated with vibrant balloons and colorful streamers.
And I wont soon forget my stellar night at The Grassroots Gallery because I purchased this awesome work of art. Goes perfect with my new purple walls. Loving it!

They had an extremely talented group of musicians called Last Note playing all night. And when I say all night, they rocked it out until almost 1am. By the end of the night everyone had literally kicked off their shoes and were dancing like nobody was watching, including me. It was truly a night to remember.
