Fantastic Soundscapes and Sound Fantasies

January 24 & 25, 6:30pm & 8:00pm

A rising star in the McKinney music scene, composer Anthony Nagid is hosting a night of sonic explorations not to be missed. Anthony’s compositions have been described as melting away a sense of time by taking listeners to places they have never been and won’t want to leave! Hearing is believing at this rare four-performance opportunity at The Cove. Anthony has chosen artists Leo Malboeuf, Charles Esser and Melissa Mitchell to show their art in conjunction with his performances.

Happy Hour

Friday, January 31, 6-9pm
Saturday, February 1, 6-9pm
Sunday, February 2, 1-3pm

The phrase “happy hour” suggests several things:  an occasion, the company one keeps, or the spirited liquid of choice.  Anne Womack’s “Happy Hour” collection of paintings expresses all of these and more:  a special moment with a friend, a relaxed lunch, children playing freely, a gathering with spirited liquid refreshment, a moment of joy or a smile brought on by a memory—or even the anticipation of a new “happy hour”.

Our beautiful logo was designed by Weeda Hamdan. She began her design using sumi ink and brush. Here is her philosophy behind the design: “The meaning of the logo stands for the infinite circle of community that supports each other (C and O), the V represents a tick/check mark/selection/achievement, the E represents a flag or a banner on a mast. The logo is a freehand of a couple of strokes to express a moment when the mind is free, the body creates. I was inspired by Fibonacci spiral using the Golden Ratio proportions and Enso, which is Mutual Circle or Circle of Togetherness.”
