Join us this Friday for JAZZ OR TREAT - an evening of ~spooky jazz~ w/ Hannah Bretz! Hannah is a jazz vocalist in Saint Peter and is inspired by the fusion of classic jazz sounds with modern pop/electronic techniques. She sings jazz with a horn-like quality in the spirit of great vocalists Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Billie Holiday.

Introducing the 2023 Juried Exhibition First Place winner, Scott Adams!
"Itasca" - Acrylic and mixed media

Here's what the juror said about Scott's work:
"I was extremely drawn to this landscape that expresses so much action and movement. Landscapes (and generally, other works) that aren’t self-contained to the matrix (the piece of paper or canvas, etc) and imply an expanse beyond their borders bring a curiosity from a viewer that draws them in. There is so much movement in the repetition of shape and the clusters of lines; the lines themselves are almost suggestive of a text. To me they transform from creating a volume—an environment—on the left side of the painting to text-like elements on the right, reminiscent of calligraphy. It’s so bold and visceral, and at the same time extremely skillful in its simplicity, in that it isn’t overworked."

✨This is the last week of this exciting exhibition—be sure to come down to the Carnegie and vote for your favorite juried artwork. We'll announce the People's Choice Award tomorrow!
