First Friday Stroll in Downtown Montrose is May 3rd,  2013, 5:30 to 8 pm with new art shows, demonstrations, music, and, of course,   refreshments, wine and beer  There will also be a “Zombie Crawl” at the same time. You can participate or just observe the zombies. The “Zombie Crawl” is a kick-off to a zombie movie that will be filmed in Montrose this summer.

Jennifer Jung will be Around the Corner Art Gallery’s featured artist for the month of May. She studied and excelled in art throughout high school and college, and enjoyed over 15 years of very successful self-employment as a mural artist and decorative painter. Upon moving to Colorado 2 years ago, she has devoted herself to returning to the canvas and producing oil landscapes, endeavoring to keep a light-handed, elegant and delicate appearance with a commitment to design and composition. Jennifer loves when artwork displays the emotion of the one who made it, and evokes emotion from the one who sees it. Join us for an artist’s reception on May 3rd, 5:30 – 8 pm during the First Friday Stroll.
