Here's an event to put on your calendar in advance: Five Myles on St. John's is hosting a benefit on Thursday, June 14, from 6-9pm. The local gallery, which has served as a community hub for emerging and established artists since 1999, is suffering the effects of the recession (which continues to hit arts funding particularly hard), and is using this event to raise funds to stay open. For more about Five Myles and their longtime commitment to young artists and the arts of the African Diaspora, check out this great Daily News piece from last week. If you're looking for some outstanding artwork for your home or business, this event is a great way to acquire some while supporting an awesome local nonprofit at the same time.
