It's getting hotter, and the monthly Castleberry Hill Art Stroll could be a little wetter this time around. Those who are participating in the Friday evening tour of the downtown neighborhood's art galleries (and even those who aren't) can start the evening off by getting a preview of Zoetic Dance Ensemble's performance of “Catch and Release” in the fountains of Centennial Park at 6 pm. The event is followed by a fund-raising party at the Marcia Wood Gallery at 263 Walker Street, one of the many participating galleries in the monthly art walk which takes place the second Friday each month in the Castleberry Hill neighborhood, not far from the park.
The art walk and the “Catch and Release” preview are free. (And don't worry. Only the dancers get in the fountain. You don't have to get wet if you don't want to). The after-party is a fund-raiser for Zoetic Dance Ensemble with food, drinks, and prizes. Tickets for the party are $35. The full performances of “Catch and Release” will take place on Friday, May 20, and Saturday, May 21, in the fountains of Centennial Park and will be free and open to the public.
