The monthly event, starting at 6:30 p.m., will feature local musicians, poets, authors, and singers.  The event is free, with donations benefitting Art Accelerated’s children’s summer art education classes.
The monthly open mics regularly attract over a dozen performers and a standing room crowd.  The open mic is hosted by Eric Sappington and offers a supportive community-oriented event to celebrate local musicians and writers. The event will celebrate its one year anniversary in October.

Art Accelerated, downtown Tillamook’s community arts center, also operates a members’ art gallery at 1906 Third Street, and various community arts events throughout the Tillamook area.  
The gallery will also open a new show starting July 20, “Your Ticket to Endless Adventure”, and offer new shows on a monthly basis.  A national quilt print exhibit will be showcased in October.
