The Starline Gallery is a block-long factory circa 1883 that was saved from demolition and has been beautifully repurposed. Its aged brick and wooden beam construction is now filled with artist studios, art gallery and even banquet facilities.
Nine months of the year the restored factory is home to 4th Friday’s at The Starline Gallery. People come to an event that’s filled with art and music. Local artists submit their artwork and the exhibition consists of work selected through a juried selection process. Cast your vote on the small paper ballot, to decide the peoples choice for Best of Show.
Music at the event, now on three stages throughout the factory, consist of local bands all the way to solo musicians. Their musical genres are as wide as the artwork on display. Everything from folk, country, honkytonk, jazz and classical.
Roaming volunteers serve trays of light appetizers and there’s a cash bar that serves the full complement of cocktails, beer, wine and coffee drinks. The doors open at 6:00 PM and a modest $5.00 cover charge grants you access. Mark your calendar for the fourth Friday of the month and head on out to 4th Friday’s at The Starline Gallery, 306 W Front St, Harvard, IL.
