The annual "EXPRESSIONS" show and sale of work by clients by Birch Tree Communities is tonight at the Governor's Mansion. This year, there will be some 230 pieces of art for sale; artists get 100 percent of the proceeds.

Birch Tree Communities serves people with serious mental illness. Its art program is designed to promote self-confidence and a route to recovery. This year's sale will include selected works by clients of other programs as well and a live auction of works selected by jurors. There will be food, drink and live music.

The sale starts at 6 p.m. and tickets ($25) are available at the door. Go early, because there is always a long line and you want to get to your favorite work of art before someone else does! The event is over at 8 p.m.

  • LIVE LIFE CHILL NOT DEAD DONE GONE

    Contrary to rumor, Live Life Chill, the bar/restaurant in the erstwhile Revolution Taco and Tequila Lounge space at the corner of Cantrell and President Clinton Avenue, is not closed. Service manager Lindsey McFadin called the Times this afternoon to say a rumor the bar had closed was killing business; by 3 p.m., no one had been in. The Times, too, had heard the rumor from a number of sources. What has changed, McFadin said, is that the bar is now only open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
