On Friday, Aug. 5 from 5 to 8 p.m., in celebration of Rockland’s busiest art walk of the summer, the Caldbeck, CRAFT and Landing galleries will host an evening of live music with Vince “Blind Albert” Gabriel. The three galleries and courtyard are on Elm Street, across from the Farnsworth Art Museum and only half a block off the city’s busy Main Street.

The entrance to the courtyard is framed by a canopy of rare Camperdown Elms, offering a serene landscaped oasis with entrances to all three galleries opening onto it. Gabriel, aka Blind Albert, is a popular local soft rock and blues singer and guitarist. His musical styles include blues, rock, reggae and Latin music, and he has played from coast to coast. Caldbeck, CRAFT and Landing galleries will be open that evening with refreshments and fine art and craft to enjoy with Gabriel’s music. For more information, call 594-5935.
