Rick and Karyn Walker, owners of The Arts Garage, are thrilled to invite you to "Backstage," a captivating solo exhibit featuring the works of our local photographer, Anderson Murphy. This unique event will take place on Friday, December 1, from 5 to 7 p.m. at The Arts Garage, located at 118 West Walnut Street, Smithville.

"Backstage" is a meticulously crafted collection of images that provide an intimate glimpse into the lives of the talented individuals who grace the stage at the Smithville Fiddler's Jamboree.
