AUG 9th 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Join us from 7:00-9:00PM for a Special Concert with JBJ!
JBJ, a singer/songwriter from Boston but originally from Texas, completed his first solo album, Tin Man, in the spring of 2015. This past winter, February 2018, he released his second solo album, So Close. Although he plays all the instruments on his albums, JBJ hand-picks a group of seasoned musicians to play his music (as well as choice covers) for live gigs. This group of passionate musicians with different backgrounds and styles make up JBJ’s band, Blended Family. JBJ’s wild, yet melodic voice (“like sipping whiskey in vocal form” – says a friend from Lizard Lounge in Boston) and the band’s passionate performances command the attention of any room.

Works by: Kara Dulin
A modern-day revival of the art of macramé and weaving
August 10th 4-6pm
August 1st-September 8th
Kara Dulin is a self-taught fiber artist located in the Merrimack Valley area. Kara meticulously designs, plans, sources and handcrafts each of her pieces using high quality fibers and other unique materials. Her extensive international travel as well as her time spent living in both New York City and Paris, contribute to her love and appreciation for one-of-a-kind curated goods, each handcrafted with exceptional quality and attention to detail. Many of her designs are inspired by her Mediterranean and Middle Eastern travels as well as her early studies in Fashion Design and Merchandising at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan.
Most of the materials that Kara uses in her designs are produced by fiber artists across the United States, including several farms and other small, independent artists who share similar values of supporting small business ventures, encouraging eco-friendly craftsmanship and spreading good vibes through art and creative expression.
Established in 2015, Kara’s work has garnished ongoing attention from the creative world. Being featured in Green Wedding Shoes, 100 Layer Cakelet, Fawn Over Baby, Sandy a la Mode, The Livery, HelloLoveHandmade, CYL Collective, Craftsposure, The Weaving Kind, Makers Village, FaveHandmade and also published in Canada by Maker’s Movement magazine and in Ireland by Ireland’s Wedding Journal magazine, Kara has experienced tremendous support for her artistry. She also has partnered with several national and global brands such as West Elm, Michael’s, Madewell and CPCM Japan as well as local, well established institutions like the Essex Art Center in Lawrence, MA.
Kara currently lives north of Boston with her husband, Scott, their seven year old daughter, Ella, and their eight year old Bernese Mountain Dog, Beckett.
