The activity last night was bustling, in and out of the studio. Emily Fineberg and her husband Zach brought in a beautiful set up of packaged books and materials for demonstration. We had some new faces and luckily, lots of families because we brought our son Tai for his first First Fridays Ypsi opening. He had a blast, especially when artist Tim Householder showed up with an arsenal of chalks for outdoor art at each FFY venue. 

Afterward, we visited our friends at Ypsilanti Running Co. and the shiny, new salon Betty Green Salon. Another great night! See you in September for Jessica Tenbusch's Lacuna: Life Through Death opening on a non First Friday (we're going out of town the week before), Thursday, September 10th.
