A musician and a performance artist will be featured along with an eclectic art market during Red Deer’s First Friday gallery openings in August.

Gallery IS will be selling imports from India, as well as gold, silver and copper jewelry, home decor and fine art during its second Art Market of the summer.

The gallery at 5123 48th St. (Alexander Way) will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday. The Gallery IS Art Market, which offers temporary henna tattoos, will also run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 7. More information is available at isgallery.blogspot.com.

Multi-instrumentalist Bruce Jacobson will ask the question “Where is the funk?,” then answer it on a variety of instruments at the Snell Auditorium. It’s located next to the Kiwanis Gallery at the Red Deer Public Library. The Red Deer-based musician, who just returned from the U.K., performs on Friday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The Kiwanis Gallery, operated by the Red Deer Arts Council, is still featuring Twisted, ceramic and digital artworks by Issy Covey, to Aug. 21.

Performance artist Lynda Adams will tell a story of Alberta farm women through music, song and interpretive dance at the Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery. Her presentation, Heirlooms, will go from 7 p.m. on Friday, and will be followed by a wine and cheese reception.

The museum will also have a historic display about the United Farmers of Alberta and the legacy of former city resident James Bower — although that opening reception won’t be held until Aug. 14.

Several other exhibits are ongoing at the museum, including Farming Out Our Future, The Farm Show, Part II: Growing, The Spirit of Alberta: Objects and Artifacts from the Museum’s Collection, and the Alberta Wide Art Show by the Alberta Community Art Clubs Association. The museum will stay open to 8:30 p.m. on Friday.

Art from the Streets will be putting on a group show from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday at 4935 51st St.
