Old School Square

June 1– Art Walk: Jen Fisher

Cornell Art Museum

6-9 p.m., Free Admission

The Cornell Art Museum at Old School Square is proud to feature South Florida artist, Jen Fisher in our #SpotlightGallery for the June First Friday Art Walk, an open house for the art galleries in downtown Delray Beach! Join us for light bites and refreshments as well as view our current exhibition, Flora.

Influenced from her background in interior design, Jen Fisher’s art has developed from the desire to create on a smaller and more tangible scale. Using similar principals of proportion, contrast and color, her work allows her to organize creative thoughts via an alternate medium, and on a more intuitive level. This series of work, A Retrospective on Perspective, has evolved through Jen’s love of sketching, perspective drawing and her constant desire to explore new materials.

June 2 – James Judd

Crest Theatre

Saturday, 8 p.m.; tickets $65/$45; premium club seating, $400 (available through Box Office only)

The Crest Theatre at Old School Square presents monologuist and humorist James Judd, headliner of NPR‘s Snap Judgment. Often compared to David Sedaris and Oscar Wilde, Judd connects with audiences as he shares stories classified as “spectacular public embarrassments and utter failures.”  However humiliating, they affirm that part of being human is telling the stories that have happened to us, emphasizing that even in the face of failure, it’s getting up and moving forward that matters.

June 8 – Joe Cotton Band

Crest Theatre

Friday, 7:30 p.m.; tickets $15/$20

The Crest Theatre presents a rock and roll night with The Joe Cotton Band. The band’s music is influenced by The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Neil Young, The Black Crowes, Government Mule, The Grateful Dead and just about any jam band and class Rock ’N’ Roll from the ‘70s and countless acts from blues, country, folk and the ‘50s and ‘60s bands. The song writing is deft and articulate. Never pretentious or overt. Joe Cotton should be just a shout away from becoming very big indeed, and, perhaps saving rock and roll from taking itself too seriously, in the process.

The material is consistently good, casual, fun and occasionally outstanding; as is the case with his latest album, which is being recorded with Producer, Chris Price, at his Miami Studio.

As for, The Joe Cotton Band, each member has been playing professionally for decades, and each one, brings an enormous amount of talent to the table. Although there is need too much planning, they share a deep musical connection, and everything just feels right.

June 9 – The Hunts

Crest Theatre

Saturday, 8 p.m.; tickets $45/$35

Coming from the southlands of Chesapeake, Virginia, The Hunts include seven brothers and sisters, ages 16 to 24, who’ve been playing music together almost their entire lives.

They later taught themselves to play instruments like mandolin, piano, ukulele, banjo, and drums and started experimenting with songwriting, creating a batch of songs that reveal their sophisticated sense of melody and undeniably dreamy innocence.

Crest Theatre
