Florence Night Out at Bombyx

Florence Night Out 2022 is just around the corner!

Florence Night Out (FNO) returns with a vibrant mix of live music with local bands, unique dance performances, an open-air artisan market, interactive family-friendly fun, independent walking tours of site-specific art installations, film screenings, and an artist-designed custom crosswalk unveiling.

The block party takes place from 4-7PM in Downtown Florence.

Take a break from the action on Main and Maple Streets and join us for two screenings of LINEFORK in the Music Room 4pm and 5:45pm. The film follows Lee and Opal Sexton who live in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky, farming the land where Lee was raised. Lee is a retired coal miner and a revered banjo legend, a living link to the deep past of American music. Though now well into his eighties and hampered by age, Lee continues to perform and teach his distinctive banjo style to a new generation eager to preserve a vanishing cultural tradition.

On display in the Peacock Room you'll find Barbara Neulinger's exhibition - Suspend. Barbara’s paintings evoke a presence – the observer / painter coming upon a pool of water in a garden or forest, in a state of suspension. They embody looseness and fluidity while navigating nuanced layers and brushstrokes. These pools regard water as an element to get lost in, absorbing and reflecting, while revealing glimpses and hiding multitudes. In the paintings there are shadow and reflection shapes, colors of bright sky or sunset, and an edge – a hint of containment. As the paintings are worked, the shapes and layers shift, until surface and shadow still, and knock against the edges. Barbara is interested in the pool as a subjective inner space, revealing a transient state of mind and heart, arrived at through painting.

Linefork offers an immersive view of Lee and Opal’s daily rituals and inherent resilience while documenting the raw yet delicate music of a singular musician, linked to the past yet immediately present.
