Saturday on Trade St. is the 13th Annual Heavy Rebel Weekender car and bike show. It runs from 10AM-5PM. If you’ve come before you remember how fun it is.

Blue Moon Gallery Hop is Friday May 10th

Why Blue Moon Gallery Hop? It has nothing to do with the lunar cycle. DADA holds a Gallery Hop on the First Friday of every month, all year ’round. We had a great hop last week during Habitat for Humanity’s BirdFest. The upcoming weekend is the Centennial Celebration in honor of the merging of the towns Winston and Salem to form Winston-Salem. The Celebration planners wanted to hold a special Gallery Hop on Friday during the celebration weekend (May 9-12). Which makes 2 Gallery Hops in one month, which happens once in a Blue Moon. So now you get it. Continue reading
