Solana Beach Art Association to present ‘Hot Flashes/Cool Art’ event Jan. 19

The community is invited to a free evening event of fine art viewing and flash fiction readings.

On Thursday, Jan. 19, from 5:30-7:30 p.m., at Solana Beach City Hall Gallery, located at 635 South Coast Highway 101 in Solana Beach, “Hot Flashes/Cool Art” will be presented.

Exhibited will be a variety of fine art pieces from members of the Solana Beach Art Association (SBAA) and presenting at the microphone will be nine talented flash fiction readers: Swami Bruce, Kit-Bacon Gressitt, Scott Gressitt, Sharon Leib, Bob Lundy, Dan McClenaghan, Julie Ann Weinstein, Diane Welch, and Elizabeth Yahn Williams. Flash fiction is a brief work of fiction that often takes its content concept from a word or words prompt. The nine readers will include the words, “hot flash” in their piece or use it as inspiration. Brevity with levity will entertain the audience with stories running about three minutes each.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m., with “curtain up” promptly at 6 p.m. Refreshments will be provided — sponsored by SBAA —from 6:30 p.m. until close at 7:30.

SBAA is a completely volunteer-run organization with professional members from several disciplines of the arts. New members are always welcome, whether at the professional level, student level, or friend level, and do not have to reside in Solana Beach.

SBAA strives to bring the arts to the community and the community to the arts, and thanks the City of Solana Beach for its continued support.
