"Living With The Earth" by Joan Curtis

"Living With The Earth" by Joan Curtis Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

The Castleton University Art Galleries are excited to share "Living With The Earth," three collections of paintings by Joan Curtis, at Rutland City Hall. The Sunken Treasures group was engendered by abstracted still-life studies from Joan’s sculptures, which in turn suggest under-the-sea imagery. The panel group At One with Nature’s Wiles refers to humans living with dramatic changes in the world of nature. The Peaceable Kingdom series expresses the hope that we can continue to live with the wild animals of the Earth. All three collections were created between 2008 and 2015.

Time: 10/2/17 8:30am - 3/30/18 5:00pm
Location: Rutland City Hall, 1 Strongs Avenue, Rutland

Norwich, VT- The Odanaksis Art Group invites you to come and see new renderings of “Spring Around the Upper Valley” at the Norwich Public Library from March 2 to April 27th.
Odanaksis, Abenaki for "little village," is an informal group of artists who paint weekly at outdoor venues in the Connecticut River watershed.

Creating art outside lends itself to dynamic lighting and compositions, and we hope this show will lift spirits as we welcome the arrival of spring!

Julia Mark to perform at Brandon Music

Julia Mark to perform at Brandon Music
Description:

"I have literally seen people's breath taken away when they first hear Julia Mark,” says Jay Ottaway, with the Plymouth Folk and Blues Festival. Julia Mark is a singer-songwriter and pianist of jazz-inflected folk/pop but her songs are unique in their subjects. She writes lyric-driven, optimistically dissonant songs about life on the moon, loss of memory, shifting homes, and palindromes. With the songwriting penchant of Carole King and the soft-easy vocals of Suzanne Vega, Mark is for the listener who likes to transcend into a musical and visual scene. Show $20. Dinner & show $45. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. BYOB.

Time: 3/10/18 7:30pm - 9:30pm
Location: Brandon Music - 62 Country Club Rd. Brandon, VT 05733, Brandon

Jazzmeia Horn: Emerging Artist Series

Saturday, March 10, 2018
8 pm

Jazzmeia Horn won the 2015 Thelonious Monk Vocal Contest and the 2013 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Competition. She is a natural who grew up in a family passionately rooted in gospel music; her grandmother, a jazz-loving pianist, gave Horn her name.

Time proved her Grandma right-

Since moving from her native Dallas to attend the New School, Horn has fully embraced and become a symbol of the New York jazz scene. Just the last 3 months of 2017 took her from Brooklyn to Bogota, South Korea, China, London, San Diego and the Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy.

Her evolution from New York musician to festival-hopping jazz star happened quickly and is reflected by the success of her debut album, A Social Call, which quickly surged to Billboard's Top 10 Jazz Albums upon its release.

"Great story-telling and inspired message-giving, fluid vocals and scat-singing and spirited group performances" - Ashley Kahn, jazz author

Winner of the 2013 Sarah Vaughan and 2015 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocal Competitions

Jazzmeia Horn, vocals
Victor Gould, piano
Nick Dunston, acoustic bass
Henry Conerway, drums

Tickets $20-$40 general, $15 students. Available online, at door, reserved by phone and In the Moment Records.

Call ahead for handicap access.
