Admission is free for Members. ($10 suggested donation for non-members)

With support from 



Art After Dark

5 pm     Newport Art Museum (76 Bellevue Avenue)

Pull on your cowboy boots and 2-step on over to the Museum for a gallery talk with acclaimed photographer and exhibiting artist Henry Horenstein, whose photographs pull back the curtain on the high-glamour back stage of the Grand Old Opry on one end, and rough-and-tumble dive bars on the other. "Honky Tonk: Portraits of Country Music", the title of his series of photographs, as well as the title of his book, includes portraits of country music legends such as Dolly Parton, Emmy Lou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Mother Maybelle Carter and more. But his work not only records the performers; Horenstein pays close attention to the honky tonk bars, patrons and culture that surround country music.  

The talk will be followed by Q&A with Horenstein, and a book signing in the Cushing Gallery. "Honky Tonk: Portraits of Country Music" will be available for sale in the Elizabeth Conklin Museum Shop.  

Then join us for a live country & folk concert on the Museum's front lawn. Settle in or get up and dance!
