ArtMosphere is one of a series of blues-and-art events presented by musician and producer Rich Rivkin. Visitors will be able to view the paintings in a variety of styles while listening to a performance by the Kerry Kearney Duo (Kearney and Gerry Sorrentino).

Visitors who wish to see a Planetarium show may purchase tickets at the Planetarium box office. Admission: $9 for adults, $8 for students with IDs and seniors 62 and older, and $7 for children 12 and under. Planetarium seating is limited, so early ticket purchase is recommended.

Regularly scheduled Planetarium programs are Long Island Skies at 8:00 (an astronomy educator shows visitors what can be seen from their Long Island backyards without light pollution including constellations, stars and deep-sky objects) and a special showing of Classic Full-Dome Rock at 10:00 p.m.

 

The evening will feature a sneak preview of the latest new show, Black Holes, at 9:00 p.m. Wine, beer and soft drinks will be available for purchase.

Kerry Kearney, a notable blues guitarist, performed in October at The Paramount in Huntington with the legendary B.B King. Kearney became interested in music at age 10, when his parents bought him his first electric guitar. Beginning in 1988, he played for five years with Jefferson Airplane/Starship.

Then, strongly influenced by Lightning Hopkins, Mississippi John Hurt and Eric Clapton, Kearney went out on his own and formed the Kerry Kearney Band. He has toured nationally and internationally with the Allman Brothers Band and Dickey Betts. Kearney and his band mates were inducted this year into the New York Blues Hall of Fame.

Gerry Sorrentino, the other member of the duo, has been a longstanding member of Savoy Brown and other musical projects. These include the British Blues All-Stars, Sam Taylor, Phoebe Legere, Long John Baldry, Rod Price, Bob Hall, Roy Young, Robert Charels, Duke Robillard, Maxine Brown, Blue Manchu, a concoction of members of Shania Twain, Mick Ronson and Savoy Brown, as well as others. In September, Sorrentino was inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame.
