Local and regional visual, literary and performing artists will join together for an entertaining afternoon of music, readings and an art exhibition when the Prattauga Art Guild hosts its 7thAnnual Wake Up and Smell the Coffee event.  This family-friendly event will be held on Sunday, September 22, from 2:00-5:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public.  

The Coffee House event is sponsored by the Prattauga Art Guild and the City of Prattville and is devoted to recognizing local artists, musicians, and writers.  The event will feature an art exhibit by members of the Prattauga Art Guild who work diligently throughout the year to support the Prattville Creative Arts Center and Gallery.  Works on exhibit will include a variety of styles and art media.

Singer songwriter Britt Johnson from Prattville, with her folk/pop style, and Cota Cheek from Montgomery, a multidimensional songwriter/musician, will perform original music and talk about their process and their inspiration. 

Willie Moseley, Tallassee author and Senior Writer for Vintage Guitar Magazine, will speak about the music industry and his recent book Atlanta Rhythm Section: The Authorized History about the rise and perseverance of the iconic 70s band and some of the most talented musicians in rock history.   Other local and regional writers will join in the event with books on a variety of subjects available.

There, of course, will be a coffee bar with coffee and various other treats and refreshment available for a nominal donation, with all proceeds going to Prattauga Art Guild projects.

This entertaining event will be held at the Doster Community Center at 424 South Northington Street in downtown Prattville. For more information, contact the Special Events office at 334-595-0850 or
