2nd Friday in Chester at B & B Booksellers

This month’s 2nd Friday Art & Music event takes place July 12, 5 – 7 p.m. The wine, appetizers and music are sponsored by B & B Booksellers at 278 Main St. July’s featured artist is Darlene Jesse of Prattville and Manteca. Jesse said she has been drawing portraits ”for as long as I can remember. I love the process of finding a connection and hopefully a story in every piece. … My hope is, that through my art I can share a snippet of my subject’s journey.” Here is Jesse (left) with one of her portrait subjects.
