Art After Dark – United Arts Council

phil fisher paintingThis is officially the United Arts Council’s “Celebrate the Arts” month. In Crayton Cove, it seems as though every month is a chance to celebrate the arts. All of the Galleries of Crayton Cove have events planned throughout the month to offer the opportunity to visit each of them and see the new works they have available.

The evening of November 8th will be especially active. Being the second Saturday of the month, it’s Art After Dark and all the galleries will be open from 6-9 p.m. to greet the public with refreshments and some will feature live music along with the opportunity to meet the artists. The Phil Fisher Gallery is hosting a book signing from 6-8 p.m. for local author, Abdullah Sharif, with his book, Sardar, From Afghanistan’s Golden Age to Carnage.

An aviation engineer as well as a trained diplomat, Sharif brings a keen eye to US reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan, while his childhood experiences and understanding of local culture help him see those efforts from an Afghan perspective. The result is an insightful, thoughtful, and sometimes heartrending portrait of a nation pushed to the limit. Sardar provides an insider’s view of US/Afghanistan relations, reminding readers Afghanistan wasn’t always a nation of chaos and violence. Be sure to stop by and meet this insightful author.
