If you love art and music, you need to plan on heading to Helena-West Helena this Saturday!

The Delta Cultural Center is hosting an opening reception for their new temporary exhibit, “Nothing But the Blues: Watercolor Portraits by Laurie Goldstein–Warren” on Feb. 5, beginning at 6 p.m. The event is being held in the museum’s Visitors Center, located at 141 Cherry St. Many of the paintings featured in the exhibition are from photos taken by the artist at the 25th annual King Biscuit Blues Festival in October 2010.

The evening features refreshments and great live music provided by Ernest “Guitar” Roy. It is free and open to the public. Maybe I’ll see you there!

She is a signature member of the West Virginia Watercolor Society, Baltimore Watercolor Society, and the Texas Watercolor Society. She is also a member of the National Watercolor Society and American Watercolor Society.
