It was the 442nd Jam last Thursday and like many of these gatherings along the way there were some memorable moments. Mariah Landeros made her Paul Henry's debut, Grant Fitch celebrated a milestone birthday and we saw the long awaited return of Mary Schons and Rich Boban. Some high culinary art graced the potluck table and a really good crowd enjoyed a show that lasted past 11pm featuring twenty performers. The 443rd Jam will be Thursday, June 20, 7pm.

Twenty performers took to the stage in a long and
varied 441st Jam that was evenly split between
poetry readers and musicians. Brianna Harrison,
Adrian Catterson and Grant Fitch made their Paul
Henry's debut and we welcomed back Connie Edwards,
Ray Huntington, and John Hackler after several months.
In what has become a recent tradition, Haley LeRand
and Dan Nicksic led the closing jam with other musicians
who had stayed til the end of the show, including
the Paul Henry Rattlers who are composed of anyone
from the crowd who can grab a hand percussion
instrument and shake it! And we even managed to
celebrate Gary Price and Janice Polka's birthdays.
The 442nd Jam will be Thursday, June 13, 7pm.
Bake it or shake it!

Jen Jackson's workshop in sacred geometry and the Traditional Art of Geometric Pattern was enthusiastically received by a full room of students on Saturday. Everyone had the opportunity to apply the fundamentals of this ancient artistic discipline with compass and straight-edge and pencil to create their own traditional geometric pattern. The feedback was very positive and Ms. Jackson will soon be announcing her next workshop. Thanks to everyone who came out for making this a very successful event.

Last Wednesday's Jazz Showcase featured saxophone prodigy Aiden Dehn backed by Di'Kobie Berry on vibes, Kris Lohn on bass and Andy Sutton on drums. In an hour and a half set Dehn displayed his expansive, brilliant command of his instrument while seamlessly handing off solos and leads to the other band members. We look forward to the next meeting of the Showcase sometime in July when Sutton will assemble another combination of top rate local talent to play another unique set of quality music.

It was one of those weekends and one of those events
the weather threatened to wash out, but the draw of artists
Jim Siergey and John Giemzik managed to overcome some
inclement conditions and we saw good crowds on both days
for the opening of "Cultural Jet Lag" at Paul Henry's Art
Gallery.

The installed art was augmented by dozens of pieces of
reproduced art in various forms, loose prints, framed prints,
copies of published work, books, small zines and pamphlets.
The visitors enjoyed viewing the wide display of each artist's
work and it was a great opportunity to converse with them
about their accomplished art careers.

We would like to thank everyone who came out, both artists, Tony Lipka who hung the show, Eugene Vinyard who provided background music both days, Mark Anderson for poster art work and Pat Kremer who was very involved and instrumental in publicizing and hosting our event.

Cultural Jet Lag will run through the end of June. If you
would like to visit Paul Henry's Art Gallery during regular
hours we are open 11am til 5:30pm, Tuesday through Saturday. Call 219-678-5015 if you would like to make an appointment to visit outside of our regular hours.

CULTURAL JET LAG OPENS AT PAUL HENRY’S ART GALLERY ON MAY 18/19 WEEKEND

Cultural Jet Lag, an exhibit featuring the works of artists Jim Siergey and John Anthony Giemzik III, two players in the underground art scene for over two decades, opens at Paul Henry’s Art Gallery in Hammond on May 18 & 19.

Siergey’s art has been described as an illogical combination of high and low culture with no regard for time and space while Giemzik’s self-taught, urban-organic style creates complex, whimsical and thought-provoking work. Two public opening receptions are planned for the May 18/19 weekend: Saturday from 1-8 p.m. and Sunday from 2-6 p.m. The exhibit continues through June 30.
...........
Jim Siergey was already active in the underground and alternative comix world since the 1970s when he met Tom Roberts in the 1980s in an animation class at Chicago’s Columbia College where they found they had a penchant for meshing what was considered high culture with low culture and Cultural Jet Lag was born.
The first Cultural Jet Lag comix strip appeared in New City, a Chicago weekly newspaper, in 1990. CJL went on to appear in over 150 alternative publications across the country. A separate CJL was created for Time Magazine, where it ran as a regular feature for 4 ½ years. A composition of CJL appeared in the Sunday magazine supplement of USA Weekend. Two comic book compilations also followed.
New City’s Aaron Cohen wrote “Cultural Jet Lag goes beyond strictly comic art, stretching into the realms of philosophy and politics to force highbrows and lowbrows to swim in the same pool.”

Tom Roberts had muscular dystrophy and passed away in 1999 at the age of 39. Siergey continued the strip for another decade or so before retiring it.
.........
Growing up, John Anthony Giemzik III was fueled by his fascination with 1970s underground comic books and would doodle on everything: textbook margins, the backside of envelopes and bathroom stalls were all fair game. Twenty five years later, his once meaningless doodles have maintained a timeless appeal with a delightfully bizarre approach. Pure imagination is always relevant…as Giemzik assigns a crammed, clamoring grab of faces to the human condition within the crowd surrounding us.

Paul Henry’s Art Gallery is located at 416 Sibley Street in downtown Hammond, IN 46320. For more information about the gallery, call David Mueller at 219.678-5015. Free parking is available in the lot directly behind the gallery between Sibley and Fayette streets.
