On the Island

Starry Night 2011 presents an evening of art and flavor

The Star Island Corp., in cooperation with Sam Adams Brewery, is proud to announce Starry Night 2011, our third annual event celebrating art, hops and harvest flavors.

This year, Starry Night returns on November 19 to the Discover Portsmouth Center with a ceramics exhibition by the Banks Gallery in Portsmouth and also features a select group of jewelers showing their unique hand-crafted pieces. RAIN for the Sahel and Sahara will also display their work. RAIN is an international non-governmental organization that works with women artisans of the Sahel and Sahara to help them achieve economic self-sufficiency.

The evening will also feature the savory Mediterranean appetizers of Café Nostimo in Portsmouth as well as a choice selection of Sam Adams beer for tasting. Musical entertainment will be provided by jazz duo Kemp Harris and Scotty Vercoe who bring their own spin on genre classics.

The evening begins at 5:15 p.m. Make your reservations by calling the Star Island office at (603) 430-6272 or by emailing office@starisland.org. Tickets are $30/person in advance or $40 at the door. VIP Preview tickets are $50/person and allow admission at 4:00 p.m. and early access to the jewelry and ceramics displays for the ideal opportunity to view and purchase the best pieces before someone else does. The evening will be held at the Discover Portsmouth Center, on the corner of Middle and Islington streets.

Join us for a Starry Night filled with art, flavor and fun!
