Calendar Pick: Café Apollinaire

The Georgia Fine Arts Academy will present its fifteenth “artsplosion” Café Apollinaire, named for the poet Guillaume Apollinaire who championed the arts and coined the phrase “Surrealism.” The Academy is a nonprofit founded by William “Bill” Bray in 1980 with the mission of mentoring and encouraging amateur or young artists, much like Apollinaire himself. During this event, Flicker will be transformed into a Parisian outdoor cafe to set the scene for a trade of ideas and display of creative works. Entertainment includes Mamie Fike Mills playing the violin, live music from Americana band Midnight Mac, classical guitar by Mark Katzman, art by Abigail West, readings of short plays and poetry and more. As tradition, the event will close with a comedy sketch by host Bowen Craig with the assistance of KAT Marie Mitchell and Sean Polite.
