CAM­BRIDGE — Cam­bridge Se­cond Satur­day on Jan. 14 fea­tured a va­ri­ety of events in down­town Cam­bridge, in­clud­ing a first-time artist show­case and Give Back Se­cond Satur­day.

The Leggett Gallery at the Ch­e­sa­peake Col­lege Cam­bridge Cen­ter on Race Street opened a new art show, fea­tur­ing the works of lo­cal photographer Jame­son Har­ring­ton. His ex­hibit in­cludes 16 scenes of daily life on the Eastern Shore.

An Eastern Shore na­tive, Har­ring­ton is the guy who likes to drag his cam­era

with him ev­ery­where, much to the tor­ment of his friends. He en­joys shoot­ing al­most any­thing, whether it be help­ing out a lo­cal busi­ness, cov­er­ing an event for a mag­a­zine, tak­ing the oc­ca­sional por­trait or just cap­tur­ing the beauty of where he hap­pens to be.

“It has been a fan­tas­tic night with a great turnout,” Har­ring­ton said. “I want to thank every­one for com­ing, and lo­cal photographer Jill Ja­suta for rec­om­mend­ing me for this ex­hibit.

“Shoot­ing in Dorch­ester County is fan­tas­tic,” he said. “There are a di­verse ar­ray of lo­ca­tions to find in­ter­est- ing scenes. I’ve been all up and down the east coast, and Dorch­ester is one of my fa­vorite places to shoot.

“I like the abil­ity to cap­ture what you see, and what you en­joy about where you are,” he said. “There is a lot to take in, and pho­tog­ra­phy cap­tures the mo­ment for you.”

The ex­hibit will be on dis­play at the Ch­e­sa­peake Col­lege Cam­bridge Cen­ter un­til mid-Fe­bru­ary. Re­fresh­ments for the event were pro­vided by The Wine Bar.

A spe­cial theme for this month’s down­town Cam­bridge Se­cond Satur­day was Give Back Se­cond Satur­day. The pro­mo­tion was a way for the com­mu­nity to sup­port lo­cal non­prof­its. Each down­town eatery was des­ig­nated for non­profit to which a por­tion of its sales on Satur­day will be do­nated.

Meals at High Spot ben­e­fited the YMCA; Rock Lob­stah ben­e­fited Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity; Black­wa­ter Bak­ery ben­e­fited Bay­wa­ter An­i­mal Res­cue; Stoked ben­e­fited Dorch­ester Lacrosse; RAR Brew­ing ben­e­fited the Richard­son Mar­itime Mu­seum; and Jim­mie and Sook’s ben­e­fited Cam­bridge Main Street.

“We are al­ways try­ing to find ways to part­ner with other non­prof­its and help share the love across the com­mu­nity,” said Cam­bridge Main Street Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Katie Clen­daniel. “The in­spi­ra­tion came from think­ing about how we could help share the love, form down­town to the groups who do good work in the com­mu­nity.

“In a com­mu­nity like ours, a few small groups do a great deal on a lim­ited bud­get with lim­ited re­sources,” she said. “We be­lieve we have the best com­mu­nity around and we want to try to do our part to en­cour­age their work and help rec­og­nize what they do.”

Se­cond Satur­day also fea­tured a book sale at the Dorch­ester County Public Li­brary hosted by the Friends of the Li­brary. The Wine Bar, 414 Race Street, hosted “Ro­mance the Reds,” a Tour de France wine tast­ing with com­pli­men­tary food pair­ings.

A live the­atre event at 447 Race Street, The Cast presents “Sil­ver Screen Sound­track,” a re­view of movie fa­vorites oc­curred on Fri­day and Satur­day.

Over­flow Cafe hosted an Open Mic Night. Liv Again / Art Bar also hosted live mu­sic with Neo Soul and Jazz, Do Kirk-Kut and DJ Jazz Jam.
