Westbury Arts continued its 2017 Summer Arts & Concert Series with a reggae soul themed event featuring a collaborative painting activity and a concert by Fevah Reign. Due to inclement weather, this inspiring evening took place indoors on Thursday, July 13 at 7:00 PM at the Westbury Community Center, located in downtown Westbury.

Reign is a singer/songwriter whose music spans many genres. Fevah is an accomplished reggae and soca singer/songwriter from Trinidad. Together they are Fevah Reign bringing the absolute finest in reggae and soul to Westbury. Fevah Reign presents a balanced mix of Reggae (Bob Marley, Damien Marley, Buju Banton, just to name a few) Soul (Bill Withers, Stevie wonder, Aretha Franklin. and more) for an exciting and well-rounded event. Their beautiful mix of music is timeless and inspiring. It will have the audience dancing and singing the whole night through.

Artists of all ages and levels of experienced were invited to collaborate in the creation of a single work of art with a community spirit. Under the guidance of an instructor, participants created a painting that represents our artistic spirits and shared experience. The resulting work will be displayed prominently in the community.

The 2017 Westbury Summer Arts and Concert Series is sponsored by the Incorporated Village of Westbury and Westbury Arts. This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Huntington Arts Council.
