Ed Brann had a great group to work with on Sunday for the monthly meeting of Rumba de la Region here at Paul Henry's. There were several experienced drummers, some with modest experience and a couple of beginners. By the end of the session everyone was playing together in true Rumba form! The next Rumba ensemble will meet here on Sunday, February 16th, 1pm. Join us then for a lively three hours!

Among 21 players we saw the return of Sergio Villasenor, Q Kiser(and his disco dance-along) and the duo of Joe Rauen and Gabe McIlwain and enjoyed a debut performance of Ukulele Bill Satek. Bill Wiley brought some copies of his 12-song collection about Whiting, IN and Rich Krueger played a few of his original tunes in a warmup to his filming at the Gallery Cabaret by CBS Sunday Morning this coming Tuesday.

S’more portraits from last Thur. at Paul Henry's Art Gallery.
Heads up! I won’t be doing these this Thur. cuz I’ll be in Salem, MA but I will the following week. Jan. 30th at 7PM

The best part about doing these is being able to talk to the person I’m painting.
(this was scary for me before but I think I’ve gotten a little more used to humans)
I’m really enjoying their stories, sometimes a little too much and it’s hard to concentrate on what I’m doing cuz I’m just laughing my face off!
And then yea, of course I’m deadly drained the next day... but so worth it.
I love my local people so much. 🖤

South Lake Artist Co-op featured artist talk for January by Rick Therrio, Paul Henry's Art Gallery, 416 Sibley, Hammond, IN, Saturday, January 18, 4pm.

Rick Therrio has been a Chicago artist for many years. He exhibited publicly throughout the 80’s and 90’s at galleries such as World Tattoo and Art-o-Rama and was part of the collaborative known as The Colson Truck Group who staged monthly shows at a jazz club on Division Street ‘The Bop Shop’ in addition to organizing their own exhibitions.

For 12 years or so, beginning in 2000, Rick focused on producing work and had little enthusiasm for finding venues to exhibit in. For the last 10 years, he has worked in pencil and Prismacolor colored pencil, sometimes using graphical software on a computer to manipulate his work. In 2012, he moved from Humboldt Park in Chicago to Lansing, IL and joined Paul Henry's Art Gallery where he has exhibited his colored pencil drawings, oil paintings, painted lamps, and work produced on a Wacom tablet. He served four years working with Jen Jackson and others, organizing shows with South Lake Artist’s Co-op. Most recently, he was chosen to be the debut artist for Art-O-Rama Online Gallery which can be found at aor.gallery.

His imagery has evolved from a wide variety of sources, music, films, literature, comics, history, and science fiction. He finds an inexhaustible source of humor in the absurdity of existence.

So please...following our open studio, starting around 4pm...join us in listening to fellow SLAC artist and former admin and art show coordinator Rick Therrio explain himself already! Come get to know him better and watch him give a talk about his work, his love for supporting the arts, his art experiences, some interesting stories…he’ll share some helpful techniques, and even tell us how he got involved in painting lamps, let alone everything else he does! He will have a selection of works to show as well. You won’t want to miss this very unique chance to hear Rick’s story! Think of this as an artist in the spotlight—take advantage of the opportunity to hear Therrio's story of how he became the artist he is today. Come show your support for an amazing and talented artist.

Local woodcarver and mixed media sculptor Robert Woerpel brought in a nice selection of his popular carved-wood pins which will replenish our stock from Holiday sales. These are real beauties and we are honored and pleased that Bob made a special "Paul Henry" pin modeled after our logo which was created by Mark Anderson.

Another fine crowd enjoyed another banner show at the 471st Jam last Thursday, a night that began with a debut performance by eclectic instrument maker and composer David Barsotti. Barsotti was followed by 22 more performers including Abby Pennanen who said farewell by leading a sing-along jam at the end of the evening. Off-stage, artist Sophia Rapata set up to create portraits for Jam Night patrons. She will be here again this coming week as we open the 472nd Jam on Thursday, January 16th, 7pm.

A good New Year's Resolution would be to make a plan to join a session of Rumba de la Region at Paul Henry's Art Gallery. The final session of 2019 was typical participation of new and veteran drummers led by Ed Brann as they explored the Cuban Rumba form of conversational rhythms. Everyone had a great time learning and playing together and at the end of three hours our gallery was filled with some amazing, structured sound. The next Rumba session at Paul Henry's will be Sunday, January 19th, 1pm. Make that plan!

On Saturday the Jazz Jam host group led by Gene Vinyard(piano) featured Bill Demos(sax), Terry Porter(guitar), Brett Butler(drums), Randall Maull(bass) and Di'kobie Berry(vibes). Guest players included Billy Foster(piano), George Ewing(flute) and Joe Ringold(piano). Guest vocalists were Charlene Ahrens and Rene Miles Foster.

The date for the January Jazz Jam will be announced soon. Happy New Year! (The next Jazz Jam will be Saturday, January 25, 2pm.)

12/31/2019

This is from a few years ago, but the circumstance was repeated many times in 2019.

I have said this before, but on the last day of the year it bears saying again. Many times during any given day or week and yes, throughout our year, people come through the door who have never been in an art venue in their entire life. Some are distressed, homeless, facing incredible challenges every day of their lives. Seldom do they "buy" anything. But almost all, without exception, thank me for the experience of contact with the arts. The expressions of wonder and amazement come over their faces. "Hector" came in last week. "I think I love art," he said. He took his time looking through the entire gallery, pointing out to himself, sometimes, a given work, chattering non-stop to himself. Did I have to "watch" him. Yes, I had to take a few minutes to monitor his visit. But when he left he thanked me extensively. This visit didn't put anything in the cash register. It won't help me pay the bills. I doubt that "Hector" knows many art collectors he can tell about Paul Henry's, but you never know. What I do know is that the arts have a power that moves outside the lines of the accomplishment of the artist, and far outside the price tag on a given piece. Thank YOU for YOUR support during the past year. Happy New Year from Paul Henry's Art Gallery!

Our 2nd Day of Christmas celebration during the 469th Jam was attended by one of our best crowds this year. There were a few carols played and the Potluck table offered a large selection of Holiday treats. Rene Bariselle made his Paul Henry's debut, playing traditional French Canadian songs on his concertina accordion. Lee Watson led the room in his sing along version of "Brown Eyed Girl" and Dennis Leise opened the show with an extended set that included several of his recently written tunes. The 470th Jam will be Thursday, January 2, 2020, 7pm. We will bring in the New Year with the singing of Robert Burns' iconic "Auld Lang Syne." Bring your biggest and best voice!

Yes, Paul Henry's Art Gallery will be open tomorrow, Tuesday, for your last minute Christmas shopping, 11am til 5:30pm!

Twas the weeks before Christmas and all through the studios,
Santa's art-making elves were working like Grand Canyon burros!
Painting and drawing, assembling jewelry and throwing clay,
Making one of a kind art all through every night and each day.
They fired up the kilns and emptied their palettes,
They inked some lines, worked wood with lathes, saws and mallets!
The results were magnificent and they were grand,
There is nothing so special as that made with an artist's hand!
Then they packed up their work and to Paul Henry's they came,
And filled out submission sheets: title, price and name.
Now in the gallery shelves are bursting with creative flair,
And the walls are hung with efforts beautiful and rare.
All of this is waiting for you and not to be missed,
In your search for something special that will ensure you'll be kissed!
We hope you'll stop by to peruse the selection,
Original art is unique and is an ideal direction!

Last night at Paul Henry's, I was pulled aside by Janice Polka and Big Jim Harris. They presented me with a Vietnam War Commemoration. I was completely caught off guard by the moment of such a thoughtful and caring act by two beautiful people and I was unable to adequately express my appreciation. It only underlined what I had said "on stage" that since I started coming to Paul Henry's, I have found it full of gracious and wonderful folks.
My son elliot plays there can you tell me anything about this picture?
The best place to be on a Thursday night!
Hey, David J. Mueller... can I post this here for your musician followers? (If that's a 'no', please just delete) Hello!!! We are in search of a few musicians to play in the orchestra pit for our production of "9 to 5: The Musical". We need a bass, a lead guitar and a trumpet. These musicians Must Read Music! This is a volunteer community theater, so pay for this gig is EXTREMELY MINIMAL. Your participation does more for promoting the arts than it does for making you money...but I think we can all agree that promoting the arts is very, very important for our hearts and souls. Production is at Marian Theater Guild, at St. John Church auditorium in Whiting, Indiana The dates we would need commitments for are for a couple rehearsals with the orchestra before tech week October 13 and 20, tech week rehearsals 1pm Oct 27th and 7pm Oct 28, 29, 30, & Nov 1. And then, of course, show dates. Show dates are Nov 2 & 3, Nov 9 & 10 and Nov 16 & 17. Yes - we're aware this is a big ask, for VeRy little pay. We do this for the love of performing, and hope you find it in your hearts to join us!! Please email [email protected] if you are interested.
