Laugh Until You Cry

Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough. ~ William Saroyan (American Writer known for his stories celebrating the joy of living in spite of poverty. 1908-1981)

A

time-honored saying suggests that laughter is the very best medicine. It can sweep away the cobwebs that are building in your heart and perhaps remind you, according to Sonny in the movie The Most Exotic Marigold Hotel, “Everything will be all right in the end and if it’s not all right, then it’s not yet the end.” Laughing at funny people and life situations can lift your spirit and improve your health (only sex and exercise can do as much). What we find funny changes with the times, once it was the classic humor of Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy and The Three Stooges. Then we switched to the much funnier (just my view) slapstick of Jerry Lewis, Lucille Ball, Red Foxx and Bill Cosby to the outrageous humor of Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Benny Hill, Steve Martin, Robin Williams, Ben Stiller, Jerry Seinfeld and Jim Carrey. Today it’s Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey and Ellen DeGeneres. This isn’t an acceptance speech at the Oscars so it’s ok if I left out your favorite. Oftentimes it’s not the comedians that make us laugh as much as real life. Attending my cherished sister’s memorial recently the pastor’s cell phone went off when he was talking and he seemed bewildered by where the sound was coming from and later reading from her bible he accidently ripped the page out…we were appalled, but telling it now makes me laugh, especially knowing my sister would laugh too. This is life: first we respond with tears; then ultimately we find humor in unintentional conduct. Musician Cat Stevens holds a truth about my own laughter and tears: I always knew looking back my tears would bring me laughter, but I never knew looking back on my laughter would make me cry. Some of our most famous comedians are just pure eccentric, like Woody Allen, but we treasure despite their weirdness: To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But then, one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.

Coming to the

Reminding me of what Jim Butcher of Changes says (laugh whenever you can; keeps you from killing yourself when things are bad, that and vodka.), I asked several people over the last few days to name their favorite funny movie. I thought they might concur with my favorites: The Big Lebowski (Doesn’t anyone care about the rules anymore!), A Fish Called Wanda, Harold and Maude and Throw Mama from the Train. But I learned a great lesson, just because you think it’s the funniest ever doesn’t mean others do. Some people offered anything by Mel Brooks including The Producers, Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein. Or anything by Monty Python or the Bridget Jones series. Other favorites ran the gamut from Airplane, Caddy Shack, The Jerk, Hangover (really), What About Bob, Animal House, Stir Crazy, Up in Smoke, Arthur, Cat Ballou, Tootsie, Meet the Fockers, Mrs. Doubtfire, Blades of Glory, Pink Panther, Strictly Ballroom, It’s Complicated, When Harry Met Sally (only because of the fake orgasm scene) and The Russians are Coming! The Russians are Coming! If you’ve forgotten about most of these movies, perhaps it’s time for a good laugh…it’s a whole lot easier to survive difficult times if you can laugh out loud. It’s contagious! And remember one thing about laughter: you can’t control it, it’s a spontaneous response and shared can change everything.

Lukinbeal’s acrylic ink on Yupo was used to paint Snowshoe, a Lynx residing at the High Desert Museum.  Roth’s watercolor on 140lb paper  is of  a  pastor who brings troubled kids and troubled horses together. The painting conveys the pastor’s gentleness and love of horses through the way he was bridling his horse. The challenge of Shelton’s composition was maintaining the Lion’s fur-like image while masking and pouring veils of watercolor on paper. Shelton used masking fluid to define shapes and strands of hair as she repeated the process of layering poured color. His Majesty developed into the furry, no nonsense king that he is.

Literary Word How Dennis McGregor Happened to Write a Quilt-themed Story

I

Following is McGregor’s account of writing his recent book, Dream Again.

n 1989 I moved to Sisters, home of the world’s largest outdoor quilt show. I loved seeing how the quilts transformed the tiny town and immediately wanted to do a poster for the show. Turns out I did, and that led to thirteen more consecutive posters. They were all well-received, but none was more popular than the Oregon Trail image from 1994. Something about covered wagons struck a chord with quilters. I decided to do another painting with a covered wagon in it. There happened to be a one parked down the street from me and I took some pictures of it. I liked the angle from down low. I imagined the wagon floating in water and immediately thought of a quilt falling from it. To see what the quilt would look like underwater I asked my photographer brother, Brent, to take some pictures. I dragged him up to Blue Lake and he jumped in with his snorkel and water-proof camera. Many photos were taken as we cast my quilt out again and again, reeling it in with the string we had attached. Even with a full wetsuit, Brent lasted only a few minutes in the 39 degree water. These reference shots enabled me to do the painting, The Crossing, which inspired the story and became a possible choice for the cover.

Q

The rest of the paintings were finished, one after another, as I found time over the next few years. I used friends for models and Central Oregon’s landscapes as backdrops. The story, set in 1845, was driven by the notion that every antique quilt in every home today would have some kind of story to tell. I looked at my old quilt and wondered, “What did this quilt go through over the last century and a half before it ended up in my home?” Dennis welcomes his new titles of both Grandpa and author, but he is best known as an illustrator who specializes in poster design. His definition of a successful poster is one that people like enough to buy, frame and hang on their wall. He concluded long ago that if his advertising posters didn’t get stolen from store windows where they were hung, he wasn’t doing his job. Over the years he has found that most people respond to clever ideas that are realistically detailed in a fanciful way. The skills developed in this pursuit have created a style that is perfect for old-time story illustrations. McGregor also has been a musician and songwriter most of his life. His love of crafting lyrics prepared him for the challenge of writing the stories yet to be imagined. Dennis is pleased to release his first children’s book, Dream Again, and he looks forward to the next one. www.dreamagainchildrensbook.com.

QuiltWorks Connects with Novel Idea

uiltWorks will be exhibiting over 50 quilts based on the library’s 2013 chosen novel for their Novel Idea...Read Together event. This is the third year QuiltWorks is partnering with the library. In 2011 they had 18 quilts based on Kapitoil, last year there were 35 based on Rules of Civility and this year are expecting a little over 50 based on a very quilt-friendly book The Snow Child. “Last year they had The Red Fox by Mary Smith over 1,000 visitors to the gallery during April and it really is a fun and exciting event,” said QuiltWorks owner Marilyn Ulrich. “We’ll have an unveiling on First Friday, April 5 which will continue through the next day Saturday, April 6 and the quilts will be up all month.” marilyn@quiltworks.com or 541-728-0527.

The Zoo Story, Albee’s first play, is a one-act that explores the chance encounter between Jerry, a ‘permanent transient’ and Peter, a book publisher, in New York City’s Central Park. Jerry, portrayed by Derek Sitter, is a desperate, isolated and lonely soul in his most tragic condition who confronts Peter (Don Tompos), a married man with two daughters, two cats and two parakeets that lives in his ‘own little zoo’.

Children and Grief is the second in the new series created by Professor Child and features simple and authentic interviews with children who talk about experiencing the death of a close family member. The first film in the series focuses on divorce. “What’s different about these films is the idea of allowing children to teach children by sharing their stories without clinical messages or adults giving advice,” said Rory Kidder, co-founder of Professor Child. “We want children to know they are not alone in what they are experiencing and we believe they can learn valuable lessons by simply listening to each other’s personal stories.”  The artistically produced films were inspired by Professor Child cofounder Jenni O’Keefe’s unsuccessful search for healing tools for a

The play’s director, Derek Sitter, interprets the play as “Two animals, one wild and one domesticated, and this is what happens when you throw them into the same cage.” Albee’s The Zoo Story addresses themes surrounding today’s economic climate and some of its inherent aftershocks. “There are many people who feel alone right now. I want to make sure they understand that they’re not,” says Volcanic Founder Sitter. The Zoo Story opens April 12 and will continue the following week with performances Thu-Sat, April 18-20. All shows begin promptly at 7:30pm and admission is $10.

Children and Grief brings together ten children to share their stories. In the film, they describe what grief means to them, how it has changed their lives, what has helped them cope and advice for other children. The documentary style production offers simple visuals of the children telling their unique stories. The film is completely unscripted and has no adult voices or clinical advice. Professor Child’s films retail for $34.99 and can be downloaded or shipped as a DVD. Each film comes with a free companion workbook that encourages children to use their own creativity in the healing process. Professor Child’s educational films and workbooks are purely child focused and provide a message that is relatable, hopeful and healing.  www.professorchild.com.

hooting Star, a romantic comedy by Steven Dietz, is co-directed by Juliah Rae and Ron McCracken. The opening night performance will be followed by a complimentary dessert and champagne reception. Snowed in overnight at an airport somewhere in Middle America, former college lovers Elena Carson, played by Lilli Ann Linford-Foreman, and Reed McAllister, played by Don Delach, have an unexpected and life-altering reunion. Elena has stayed true to her hippie-ish, counter-culture path,

while Reed has gone predictably corporate and conservative. As the night gives way to laughter, banter and remembrance, Elena and Reed revisit a past that holds more surprises than they imagined—and a present that neither of them could have predicted. Filled with laughter and ache, this is a bittersweet romantic comedy about the middle days of our lives, and how we got there.

John Scharff began his career with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. He initially arrived at the refuge as the assistant manager in 1935 and was promoted to refuge manager in 1937. John was the first on-site manager of the refuge. From 1908 until John’s promotion, the refuge was managed from Portland with on-site law enforcement. With the addition of the Blitzen Valley to the refuge in 1935, management was transferred to the field Sagegrouse by Dave Bartholet and John was tasked with this job. When Scharff was promoted to refuge superintendent in 1937 he faced the daunting challenge of not only keeping Civilian Conservation Corps enrollees at three camps busy making improvements in the Blitzen Valley and constructing buildings, at the same time, overseeing management of this vast, tremendous natural resource. While the CCC constructed much of the infrastructure present today, Scharff and his staff built many of the features seen today on the landscape. John and his wife Florence lived on the refuge at refuge headquarters until John retired. He served as Refuge Manager for over 34 years until he retired at age 70. Scharff maintains the longest tenure for an on site manager in the Refuge System and he was awarded the Department of Interior’s Distinguish Service Award in 1971. Florence is credited with the abundance of flowers of flowering shrubs that grew at refuge headquarters for decades. She planted many of the perennials growing today at headquarters with members of a gardening club from Burns. Florence and John lived in the building that now serves as the visitor center and office. The Harney Basin is located on the Pacific Flyway – one of four major north-south migratory routes (Pacific, Central, Mississippi and Atlantic flyways) in North America. The Pacific Flyway extends from Alaska/Siberia to Patagonia. Each year migratory birds travel some or all of this distance in spring and in fall, following food sources, heading to breeding grounds or travelling to overwintering sites. Waterfowl using the Harney Basin in the spring do not return through this area in the fall because of typically dry conditions, instead these birds move southward through the Klamath Falls area.

Travel & Inspiration Layered in the Brilliant Encaustic Art of Sandy Brooke by RENEE PATRICK Cascade A&E Editor

A

lifetime entrenched in the art world has enabled Sandy Brooke to work across art movements and discover different media, all the while exploring the influence of travel in her life. Meanwhile, a career in art education has provided her a way of challenging not only her students, but her own work by always striving towards critical thinking and excellence. Never having had any formal art education prior to college, Brooke initially considered a medical degree at the University of Oregon at her father’s suggestion. Upon learning the study would include dissecting frogs… she turned to the art department. “I can’t kill anything!” she exclaimed. “I walked into the art department…and was told I looked like a painter.” Whether the professor predicted her long career as a painter, or Brooke took it as a self-fulfilling prophecy, the lasting influence of that decision has led to a rich and rewarding career as an artist and educator. After graduating with her Bachelors of Fine Arts (BFA), her painting continued to evolve. “I was doing very abstract, large geometrical work... Frank Stella was the king of art and everyone wanted to be him, but I didn’t know anything about realism or abstract impressionism,” she commented. “So I tried that.” Her consistent willingness to experiment with different artistic movements proved to work for the young artist, and soon she was showing in galleries in Portland and teaching art classes in a local junior high when the travel muse struck. “I went to Africa. My father was with U.S. AID…and we ended up traveling the country on safari,” she said. Brooke came home from the trip with countless photos, mostly of the animals glimpsed on safari, and the lions and zebras turned into photo-realistic paintings.

“Everything I do is influenced by travel, newspapers, magazines, TV and media. I’m completely captivated by it,” Brooke explained. In an acrylic abstract series called Postcards, she drew on inspiration from a trip to Boston and Cape Cod, layering paint to create a depth of imaginary space between the value of colors. A foray into photo-realism turned to trains a few years later after a move back to Bend, her hometown. Brooke would walk the train tracks in town, determining the best light fell at 10am or 4pm, to photograph train doors. She would project the images on paper to work from, eventually showing some of the resulting artwork in a Texas gallery. Her affiliation with OSU began in 1990 when she began teaching in Corvallis, finding herself back in Bend when her husband, Henry Sayre, wrote the proposal for the OSUCascades campus. “At first we hadn’t proposed an art program at the new campus,” Brooke said. “It is a very expensive program to run. But I was here and Henry is an art historian, so we decided to try and offer the BFA here.” All the while Brooke was sending her art out to shows around the country. “The showing thing is always difficult, if you are teaching and trying to show and paint, it’s very competitive,” she said. During graduate school in 1991 at the University of Oregon, Brooke moved from acrylics to oils, staying with oils up until her recent encaustic work. By the time Brooke went up for tenure in 2008, she had some fairly substantial shows under her belt. The year-long process brought the artist under the spotlight, but her artwork had been shown nationally and internationally by this time, and she had also written three books: Drawing as Expression, Techniques and Concepts (2001), Hooked on Draw-

ing: Illustrated Lessons and Exercises for Grades 4 and Up (1996) and Hooked on Painting: Illustrated Lessons and Exercises for Grades 4 and Up (1999). “Going up for tenure is an experience,” she said. “I was reviewed by the Cascades and Corvallis campus, and then College Of Liberal Arts Committee, then at the Provost level your dossier is reviewed and then sent out to six outside reviewers.” Brooke has excelled in the roll of educator and mentor, often finding tough love to be the most beneficial for her students. “I’m fairly critical of them in the beginning because the art world is not a fun place, it’s not nice out there,” she said. “This way I tell them it’s not good, so they are not shocked when they hear that. I want to prepare them for a world that is not friendly. When you get out of the university you are competing with all of the universities, you really have to have it going on and be on top of your game. I try to get them prepared for whatever they want to take on.” Not only does she challenge her students, but often the students end up challenging her artwork as well, “Teaching is inspiring to me when students step up and start doing some marvelous work and I feel challenged to step it up and get in the game. For me teaching is bringing them along as critical thinkers. “I feel responsible towards them to teach them everything I know about the art world and critical thinking. Art is not about Sandy Brooke a product, it’s as much about why you did it, what you used, what your inventiveness is. You want to stretch the viewer, and make you question what you are doing and make them feel a little uncomfortable. The difference between what is considered art is, does it get the viewer involved? Do they want to look at it again? Not that they buy it, just that they think and want to know more.” Her work in encaustics, while successful, has highlighted what she loves about painting with oils, “I like the immediacy of paintings. With encaustics you can draw it on, and you brush on hot wax but you have to keep the surface warm, and it’s a pain. My hands take a beating, and I don’t like the process. I like some of the outcomes, but it’s not fluid enough, it’s so frozen. With oils I have a lot more freedom,” she explained. In addition to returning to oils, Brooke is excited once again to begin exploring a new media: digital video. “It’s like changing from oils to encaustics back to oils, there is a thing about media that just transfixes me,” she explained. “I don’t know how to run the camera or edit [the film]…I want to personally understand that.” She does have some experience with video, she helped

write and produce Sayre’s video series, A World of Art - Works in Progress, a companion set of 10 films to his text book, A World of Art. Brooke and Sayer created videos on the process of making art which included famous artists Milton Resnick, one of the last survivors of the first generation of the New York Abstract Expressionists, June Wayne, printmaker and founder of the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles, and sculptor Beverly Buchannan. “I had really good luck and became really good friends with them,” Brooke said. Digital video is not just a new direction for Brooke’s artistic energies, but will be pivotal to a series of workshops she hopes to offer at OSUCascades this summer. “If we diversify [with digital media] and increase students’ knowledge, skill and technical ability, it increases their ability to work in the industry. They can still paint and show; but they will be making a painting on a tablet and still be using all their skills to do this painting. It’s not abandoning fine arts by any means.” Brooke is working on getting Alan Montgomery and Jim Flutz in to teach the workshops and, she said, bringing more digital media to OSU-Cascades is a goal that may require some creative thinking to collaborate resources with the main campus in Corvallis. Look for more details about the classes on the OSU Cascades website, www. osucascades.edu. Brooke will be showing at Franklin Crossing during the month of April and will be speaking at OSU-Cascades It’s in the Bag Lecture, Fate and Luck: A Series Crossing Boundaries at 12pm on April 3. www. sandybrooke.com. www.facebook.com/CascadeAE | April 2013

First Snow on Sparks Lake by Stuart Gordon

S

tunning images of beautiful landscapes can do more than just look good on a wall. They can be put to work for a good cause. That’s just what Bend photographer Stuart L. Gordon plans to do as a follow-up to the successful sale of his Central Oregon Calendar on behalf of the Central Oregon Environmental Center. Gordon will be holding an exhibition of his inspiring images of Central Oregon landscape scenes at the Environmental Center from 5-8pm Friday, April 26, and again from 10am-2pm Saturday, April 27. All of the prints on display have appeared in one of the Central Oregon Calendars. Calendar sales have raised nearly $1,000 for the Environmental Center during the past three years. At the April

M

Stuart L Gordon Photography Benefits Environmental Center exhibit, images from the calendar will be for sale in a variety of sizes as both framed and unframed matted prints. Gordon will donate 30 percent of the proceeds to the Environmental Center, located at 16 NW Kansas Ave. “I am very pleased to be able to partner with the Environmental Center in this fund-raising event,” Gordon said. “I can’t think of any better way to make use of these images, which capture the spirit and beauty of Central Oregon, than to support an organization that promotes conservation of our limited resources.” All the prints on sale have been personally printed and signed by the artist and come with certificates of authenticity. The framed prints are ready to be hung, and the unframed matted prints give buyers a chance to select their own frames. Local frame shop Art On The Go is offering a 20 percent discount to frame prints purchased at the exhibit. To see the images that will be on sale at the exhibit, visit Gordon’s website at Stuart L. Gordon Photography: http://chasingthelight.zenfolio.com/p439076102. Gordon said he sees the camera as a tool to express his personal vision of, and emotional response to, the beauty of the natural world. “Through photography I become a participant, rather than merely an observer, in a singular and unrepeatable moment when light, weather, location and subject combine to produce an extraordinary scene,” he said. Gordon has had several exhibits of his images in Bend, and his photographs have been selected for display at Redmond Airport in several juried exhibits. His work has been featured in Landscape Photography Magazine in the United Kingdom, and he is a recent winner of the Chasing The Light Photo Competition. He currently is working on a book of images culled from his extensive travels throughout the Western United States. His limited edition work is represented by Agora Gallery in New York City. 541-306-8711, aikistu@bendcable.com, www.chasingthelight.zenfolio.com.

Michael Beeson is a retired CBS Radio journalist who’s been doing fine art work for many years. He became serious about it in the 1980s while living in the coastal village of Mendocino, California where he consistently sold work in multiple galleries. The same was true on the island of Kauai where Michael and his wife Gail lived for a number of years. He found the abundance of wildlife and the brilliant colors of the islands inspiring, and art he produced there is now in private collections in Hawaii and on the mainland. When Michael and Gail moved to the Sunriver area in Central Oregon, he once again found an inspiring environment. He says, “My principal subject is the natural world. I’m particularly interested in wildlife, but also enjoy painting landscapes and many other subjects. I work in several media: oil, acrylic, Prismacolor pencil, graphite pencil, pen and ink and photography.” Michael’s artwork can be seen in Sunriver at the Artists’ Gallery Sunriver. www.mbeeson.com. Sunriver Music Festival posters are available for $12. Framed posters are $65. Notecards are $12 for a pack of ten and available at the Sunriver Music Festival. 541-5931084, tickets@sunrivermusic.org or www.sunrivermusic.org. “golden Hour on the Big Deschutes” by Michael Beeson

Alleda Real Estate 25 Minnesota Ave., www.vivianolsen.com, 541-923-4073. A showing of animal paintings and sculptures by Vivian Olsen and Joren Traveller. Two local wildlife artists present Wild and Tame, a combination of paintings and sculptures depicting a variety of media and animal subjects in an exhibit devoted to the animals they love. Both artists are members of the High Desert Art League.   Art in the Atrium at Franklin Crossing 550 NW Franklin, celebrates First Friday with Abstractions, a fine art exhibit featuring Sandy Brooke, Erin Kay, Lynn Rothan and Margot Voorhies Thompson. Brooke, associate professor at OSU-Cascades and A&E April cover artist, exCassis I by Sandy Brooke, enhibits encaustic paintings caustic and collage on board blending disparate images, concepts and time together in layers of wax. The information therein rises through a seemingly chaotic ground to the surface “like ghosts of history” suggesting new meanings.

Opens Wednesday, April 3 thru Sunday, April 7. Retired Bend schoolteachers, Bob and Carol Higgins, have worked for 12 years in Northern Uganda to build Otino Waa, more like a village than an orphanage, with small houses for eight children and local widows serving as housemothers. Presently 260 children live in the village funded entirely from private donations by generous Americans. The children attend primary, secondary and vocational school, gaining a general education and job skills. Some graduates now move on to higher education or skilled work in the community. Learn additional information from Dale Russel, PATH Ministries at PATHUSA!@bendbroadband.com. Unique among the benefactors contributing to Otina Waa are inmates of the Snake River Correctional Institution of Northeastern Oregon. During a prison chapel service, they heard the heart-breaking stories of the orphans, some forced into service as child soldiers or with parents lost to AIDS and other tragic circumstances. The inmates proposed to officials that they create works of art to be sold to benefit the children. The artwork on display at the Oxford Hotel is from the Snake River inmates, many of whom will never be released. They say the payback for them is a sense of purpose not felt in years. Thus art helps to heal not only children in Uganda but also serves incarcerated men in Oregon – a story of hope lost…and found. The Oxford serves complimentary wine during the event and generously allows non-profits use of their conference area.

Linda Lee Miller floods her watercolor paintings with subtle feelings and emotional sensibilities. Linda strives to create paintings Tranquility Tea by Linda Lee Miller that make sense visually and trust that metaphor and the poetry will follow. (For Linda) painting with watermedia enlivens an intimacy, a beauty and a flow, but most of all it offers a spiritual quality to the viewer. Su Skjersaa Lukinbeal’s Somewhere Out There by Su art reflects the thrill of the Skjersaa Lukinbeal unknown and the beauty of unexpected motifs that can explode when you step back and let the ink, color, texture and design find their way to surprise your eyes. Sue uses acrylic ink to create magic on Yupo paper. This generates a certain brilliance as one ponders the depths of these images. Within them one will find life hidden in most unusual forms. The art of Renne Brock reflects a creative process that offers the viewer an option to look beyond the surface to see shifts in


perspective. Images begin with a preconceived intention but evolve past thought to respond on more of an intuitive level, trusting the instinctual process the painting evolves to an image that reflects organic movements and relationships to each other. Even though all three artists “start where they are, they produce images that share a thread of commonality…”that Dear Madaline by there is faith in infinite opportunities Renne Brock which are always available to us as long as we are willing to respond to the unexpected as a gift from the spirit.”

Sunriver

Artists’s Gallery Sunriver Paper Station building 541-593-2127 or 541593-8274, www.artistsgallerysunriver. com. Featuring Pamela Armstrong (Date Bags), Tina Brockway  (Fine Art Pottery), Carolyn Waissman (Photography) and Vanessa Julian (Oils). Second Saturday artists’ reception and wine tasting April 13, 4-7pm at the Gallery. Sunriver Area Public Library 56855 Venture Lane, 541-312-1080. The Friends of the Sunriver Area Library present special exhibits featuring photography by Susan Berger and stuffed Pottery by Tina animals by Nancy Crandell through Brockway April 27. Crandell began creating her “soft sculpture” teddy bears about fifteen years ago, after accumulating piles of acrylic “fur” while encouraging her daughter in a bear-making venture. When her daughter decided to work in another medium, Nancy was left with a closet full of “fur” and other supplies that begged to become something important.  Nancy decided to jump in and take her sewing skills into this new, creative direction. Bear “construction” turned out to be so much fun that Nancy is still at work, continuing to create bears and other furry critters. Nancy says that she lets the material dictate which direction her creations will take. Berger began photographing wildflowers in the deserts of southern California in 2003 after a fellow photographer talked her into participating in a wildflower jaunt. Finding and photographing wildflowers quickly grew into an obsession, and represents Susan’s almost-exclusive subject. There is a tiny unseen world beneath our feet, and extreme close-up shots are one way to see it all up close and personal. She uses a digital Canon 60D and 200mm Canon macro lens. Locating the flowers can be a job in itself, and Susan has spent many weekends hunting wildflowers -- sometimes driving hundreds of miles in search of a single specie.

But Wait There’s More!

T

imes are tough right now, and I’ve been looking for ways to pick up a little extra cash. And that’s when it dawned on me. I’ve got this column to sell - maybe all I need is an infomercial! Scene One: Faded black and white, slightly blurred. An obese man in a torn bathrobe, sitting at a beat-up table in a run-down kitchen. The remains of some congealed oatmeal is in a bowl at his side. He’s reading a humor column in a newspaper. His face is scrunched up, and he obviously doesn’t find it funny. His expression goes from bewildered, to disgusted, to angered. He rises abruptly, knocking over his cheap chair, which shatters on the worn linoleum floor. He grabs the newspaper, spreads it on the counter and pointedly dumps the day’s trash on the humor column before wadding it up and tossing it toward the trash bin. He misses, and coffee grounds and old grease splatter the wall. Voice-over announcer: “Are you sick and tired of humor columns that aren’t funny? Is the one in your local paper not even good enough to hold coffee grounds?” Scene Two: Full, vibrant color, crisp focus. A beautiful young couple is sitting at a poolside table under a warm sun. The table is spread with a lush array of fresh juices, pastries and tropical fruits. The man is reading The Lighter Side aloud from the paper. The couple laughs continuously, pausing here and there to catch their breath before continuing. Voice-over announcer: “Isn’t this more of what you want from your

humor column?” Scene Three: Full, vibrant color, crisp focus. The beautiful young couple steps inside from the patio and spreads the newspaper out on an expensive granite countertop. The woman bends forward, scissors in hand, showing ample cleavage. She begins to carefully cut the column out of the paper. “This is another one we just have to cut out and have framed,” she purrs. “I know,” the man agrees. He slips off his shirt, revealing sculpted, oiled pecs, and lifts a hammer. He turns, flexing, and tacks a nail into the wall. Lifting a platinumand-teak frame from the counter, he shows it to her, then hangs it on the wall next to an endless row of similar frames. “However, that’s the last one we have room for. That Lighter Side column is so good, and we keep framing and hanging so many of them, I think I’ll have to call the contractor today to see about having another wing built.” The couple smiles lovingly at each, laugh, and say at the same time, “but it’ll be worth it!” Scene Four: Faded black and white, slightly blurred. The obese man in the torn bathrobe is on the floor, sweeping up coffee grounds, crying. He pounds his fists against the other humor column, then reaches for a bottle of whiskey. Voice-over announcer: “It doesn’t have to be this way. Your life doesn’t have to be this bleak, empty, pointless and humorless. There’s a simple way to bring sunshine and joy into every dark, dank room of your life.” Scene Five: Full, vibrant color,

crisp focus. The beautiful young couple is walking through the park on a perfect sunny afternoon, each breathlessly laughing as they recount favorite lines from past columns. Coming toward them is the obese man in the tattered bathrobe- still shot in black and white and slightly out of focus. He’s carrying a tattered umbrella because it’s raining over his head. He’s still crying. The beautiful young couple stops in front of him. “What’s wrong,” they ask in unison? “It’s my humor column,” he sighs between sobs. “It’s just not funny, and my days are bleak. I walk around under this rain cloud, and besides that, I’m black and white. All I want is to laugh again. Oh yeah, and to be dry and in color.” The young couple smiles knowingly at each other. She reaches into her bag, leans forward - showing ample cleavage - and hands him a copy of The Lighter Side. “Try this. It’ll make all the difference in the world.” The man looks at it, clearly skeptical, but takes the column, thanks them and walks off. Scene Six: Full, vibrant color, crisp focus. The formerly obese man in the tattered bathrobe is seen lounging on the back deck of his yacht, tan and fit, in a silk dressing gown. He’s reading The Lighter Side and laughing. Several framed columns hang on the walls around him. He slowly sets down the paper, wiping a tear of joy from his eye, and looks at the camera. “Since discovering The Lighter Side, my dark clouds have disappeared. My days are filled with sun-

shine and I’ve become CEO of the world’s largest sunscreen company. I own yachts and homes all over the world, my hormones are perfectly in balance, all of my extra weight simply fell right off - including that stubborn belly fat - my sex life is the best it’s been since I was 18, my eggs no longer stick to my frying pan, my lawn is green and the envy of all my neighbors, my garden hose doesn’t kink up any more, all the stains instantly came out of my laundry and I no longer get up in the middle of the night to urinate! I owe it all to The Lighter Side!” Voice-over announcer: “So don’t delay! This could be you in just a few short weeks! Supplies of The Lighter Side are very limited due to high world-wide demand, so you MUST order within the next 14 minutes to ensure that our Amish supply chain can get your delivery out to you! It’s just $19.99 per column, in 10 easy payments of $19.99 each, plus $19.99 shipping and handling, plus a $19.99 processing fee! But wait - there’s more!! Order within the next eight minutes, and we’ll double that order! That’s right - you’ll get TWO columns for just $19.99 per column, in 20 easy payments of $19.99 each! Just pay separate shipping and handling of $19.99 per payment of $19.99, plus a $19.99 handling fee for each payment of $19.99 that’s greater than, less than, or equal to $19.99! It’s that easy!! “And best of all, it comes with an iron-clad, money back guarantee that at least one of us is going to be absolutely delighted with this deal!” paul2887@ykwc.net.

The People Choose a Winner for City Walls UNSEEN::WORLD

T

Protect City Wildlife by Judy Hoiness, Graphite, watercolor crayon and watercolor paint

he City of Bend Arts, Beautification & Culture Commission’s (Arts Commission) fifth City Walls at City Hall art show, UNSEEN::WORLD, inspired the community through art. Since its opening in October 2012, visitors on First Fridays have been given the opportunity to vote on their favorite artist who best portrayed the theme.  Fifteen juried artists were given extraordinary photos of ordinary objects common to Central Oregon and were asked to create their art inspired by the photo. Annie MuskeDukes-Driggs of the partner and sponsor organization, Bend Research, took Scanned Electronic Microscopy (SEM) photographs. The nature of the photography creates an unrecognizable image of this common object. Objects too large for the electron microscope were photographed by Joel Bailie of Bend Research, using macro-photography. Judy Hoiness was announced as the People’s Choice winner for UNSEEN::WORLD. The photo she was inspired by was an owl feather. Judy is an international award winner in the arts and taught for many years at COCC. For more information visit www.judyhoiness.com. The framed macro-photos will be donated to the Bend Science Station for children grades 3-12. The Arts Commission acts in an advisory group to the City of Bend in the promotion of art, beautification and culture in Bend. 541-388-5505 or rchristie@ci.bend.or.us.

Plein Air Painters Show at COCC

T

he French Term “plein air” means in the open air. In the 19th century, the Barbizon school began a tradition of painters taking their work out of the studio and into the open air, but the Impressionist are Mt.Washington by Carol Picknell best known for popularizing this technique with astounding success. The movement to paint outdoor was influenced by the new science of optics. The Impressionists noted that light on form could convey the impression of the landscape that was then expressed in color. They created an impression of the landscape rather than a realistic view. The Plein Air Painters of Oregon continue this art portraying the beauty of Oregon through oil, watercolor, acrylic and pastels.  The Central Oregon Community College presents 56 paintings in their library located on Campus Way from March 1 through May 1.   These paintings showcase the skills of this talented group. The artists exhibiting are: Laura Jo Sherman, Bea Youngs, Carol Picknell, Gordon Baker, Kay Baker, Janet Rawlings, Lisa Hoffman-McCabe, Winnie Givot, Marilyn Dahlen, Louise Scott, JoAnn Brugess, Michelle Oberg, John O’Brien, Jennifer Ware-Kempcke, Ron Rauch, Sue Lyon-Manley, Nancy Misek, Margi Legowik, Shelly Wierzba, Charles Hardt Hedges, Linda Gaillard, Denise Rich and Ruth Schassberger. The Plein Air Painters have a seasonal schedule that begins in April and ends in September or October. They meet weekly in either the morning or afternoon for three to four hours for most artists. They explore locations in

Oregon ranging from the Coast to areas of Eastern Oregon with many sites in Central Oregon.   To exhibit in this show, artist must have completed the painting at one of the scheduled sessions with only minimal additions done in the studio. These painters have braved cold, heat, mosquitoes and sometimes disparaging comments to bring their artistic vision to life. Each painting session attracts about 20 participants who range themselves throughout a location following what attracts them to a scene.   Their experience and skills vary but not their passion to create. Many of the painters employ a realistic style but some choose to capture the essence of a scene in a more impressionistic manner. Many of the painters will take these studies back to the studio and use them as the basis for a more detailed and larger work that you will find hanging in our local galleries.   An artist is absorbing the emotion, local color and photographs during the painting session to inform their studio work or a painting can be complete and ready to hang that day. Please come and absorb some of this excitement yourself.Please check with the library for hours and parking information by calling COCC.   If you would like to learn more about Plein Air Painters of Oregon just visit their website pleinairpaintersoforegon.org.

unriver Lodge Betty Gray Gallery presents a fine art exhibit by Jerome Gaston featuring watercolor and acrylic paintings in the upper gallery. The exhibit opens on April 9 and continues through May 14. The resort invites the public to visit the exhibition. Gaston (1911-1989) worked in the early part of the 20th Century, with his

brothers, as an illustrator in California producing original posters for theaters to advertise Hollywood greats such as Betty Davis, Will Rogers, Al Jolson, James Cagney, Joan Crawford, Marlene Dietrich, W.C. Fields, Ginger Rogers and others. During this time, it was common for movie theaters to hire artists to produce vibrant, original advertising in order to compete with other movie houses but also vaudeville and live theater. Streamlined and colorful, the original artwork attracted crowds as the lithographed posters could not. Regrettably, most of this original art was destroyed or recycled until unusable. Gaston and his two brothers, Norton and Edward, operated a commercial art business in a basement studio of the Fox Theater in Long Beach, California, selling large original show signs that were more compelling and current than printed movie posters. Norton, a portraitist, painted the faces, Jerome and Edward, the backgrounds. Their lithos sold for $8 –$40 to theaters in the Long Beach area, offering a good income during the Great Depression of the late 20s and 30s. Upon retirement from the movie industry, Gaston spent the remainder of this life sketching and painting images of the southern California area such as the period stucco, tiled-roof building of the Bowers Museum. The displayed art represents only a small portion of his work from the late 60s and early 70s. With watercolor his forte, critics consider Gaston one of the most accomplished California watercolor artists of that time. In the lower level gallery, Donaca shows brilliantly colored, expressionistic landscapes depicting Central Oregon. Painted in multiple saturated hues, the images include the Deschutes, Mirror Pond and other familiar scenes. Sunriver invites the public to visit the exhibition at the Lodge, open all hours. Billye Turner organizes exhibitions for Sunriver Resort and provides additional information at 541-382-9398.

Artists’ Gallery Embraces the Bounty of Spring

C

ome celebrate with the artists at the Artists’ Gallery in Sunriver. There are lots of things to get excited about. Not only are we happy to embrace the bounty of spring, it is the second anniversary of this successful gallery. To honor the occasion, the gallery will have drawings each hour for beautiful, one of a kind, art pieces. There is no cost to enter, and you can meet the artist that created each piece. Enjoy the Second Saturday reception with the artists on April 13. Following are featured artists: Carolyn Waissman, a local naturalist and wild life photographer, is showing a new collection of Central Oregon subjects titled Wild – Feathers and Flowers. Carolyn’s work has been extremely popular at the gallery since the grand opening two years ago. Art patrons return to the gallery frequently to see which new Western Tanager by Carolyn Waissman photography piece can be added to their collection. A frequently asked question is, “How long did the artist have to wait to capture that specific moment or animal expression?” Her new pieces are macro (really close up) photographs that capture, in exquisite detail, each beautiful flower and wild song bird’s minute essence. Central Oregon offers a feast for artistic inspiration. Photographing the natural world is intrinsically part of Carolyn’s every day life in Central Oregon. Her joy is expressed in her personal interpretation of every aspect of nature. Carolyn’s art is presented in multiple formats. Look for greeting cards, prints framed in eco-friendly bamboo frames and a variety of sizes of enlarged giclee canvas pieces. Tina Brockway is an artist that enjoys working in multiple mediums, including graphic design, fabric design, en-caustic painting and pottery. Her love for art started early on in life, and it is easy to see the diverse influences of her training and travels in the pottery pieces that she displays at the gallery. Many of her large fine art pieces (bowls, platters, lamps, unusual vessels) demonstrate the often “peacock” colors of the Raku pottery process. Some pieces boast delicate patterning reminiscent of lace. Other pieces display beloved scenes from Central Oregon such as Smith Rock. Tina’s fine art pottery collection also includes smaller pieces like delicate cups and vessels with Pottery by Tina Brockway strong Asian influences. Large or small, each piece is made unique because of the combination of tightly controlled artistic design and the uncontrolled nature of the Raku glazing process. Vanessa Julian is new to the Artists’ Gallery this year, so many regular patrons may not have had the pleasure of viewing her work. Vanessa’s medium

Sunriver

is acrylic on both two and three dimensional surfaces. Locals may be familiar with her work through her well know poster, Sagebrush Hoppers, that she painted for the Bend Summer Festival. Gallery pieces include both whimsical paintings and painted boxes. The artist says that her art is a reflection of the world that she sees, a world that she believes is full of “fat curiosities.” Her art is colorful, full of round shapes injected with colorful expressions. Her piece Bunny Box shows a gap tooth rabbit that can not help but bring a smile to everyone who looks at it. Pamela Armstrong, also new to the gallery, is fabric artist. Come see her collection of beautiful “date bags.” A date bag is a special little purse, handcrafted of fabric remnants that may have previously resided in a grand room or were worn by someone special. These little gems may display Grandma’s old buttons, rescued from the jar in which they resided for decades. Maybe there will be the single earring, a brooch or broken pendant that can still sparkle and gleam in the light. Pamela’s date bags encourage admirers to think about the stories that each of these Bunny Box by Vanessa Julian embellishments could tell. What parties did they attend and what coats they may have fastened? Perhaps you will remember a special someone? Like all art pieces, each date bag has a title. Although each piece is unique, they all have one thing in common. They are small and they are small for a reason. When you use your date bag, it helps you stay in the moment, not distracted by the entire life that you carry in your capacious day bag. You are free to enjoy dinner with a friend, a movie or a stroll in an art gallery unencumbered. It is just the right size to help create a memory. It is the perfect gift for a special friend or for you! www.artistsgallerysunriver.com.

The Sisters Folk Festival is known for introducing a Central Oregon audience to new and fresh voices, and we are confident all of these bookings will do just that,” says Executive/Artistic Director Brad Tisdel.  Ryan Montbleau, Amber Rubarth and Amy Speace will also be teaching at the Americana Song & Arts Academy, September 3-6, held at Caldera. The Sisters Folk Festival All-Event passes are $115, and in 2012 sold out for the first time. The event draws world-class musicians and songwriters to intimate venues throughout the beautiful town of Sisters. Event organizers continue to place the music at the forefront, as most venues are listening audience experiences that compel the artists to perform at their best, whether in front of 125 or 1,100 adoring fans. www.sistersfolkfestival.org, 541-549-4979.

Scheduled for September 6-8; the Festival will bring back the  immensely talented young songwriter and 2012 Encore Artist, Grammy-nominated John Fullbright from Okemah, Oklahoma. He  will be returning to perform as The California Honeydrops a duo with guitarist Terry Ware throughout the weekend. He will once again present his wry humor and intense insight and lyrics to the Sisters audience.   In addition, the Festival is excited to feature Lake Street Dive, a compelling band with a fresh take on jazz-influenced tunes, led by the vocals of Rachael Price. Lake Street Dive has a growing buzz throughout the country and is performing at major festivals this summer. Hailing from Boston Massachusetts, the  incomparable  Ryan Montbleau Band  will perform their soulful R & B music inspired by Ryan’s recent time spent in New Orleans. The California Honeydrops will thrill audiences with their horn-infused dance music after wild appreciation at the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival last year. Also on the bill is the intelligent and quirky Amber Rubarth, winner of NPR’s prestigious Mountain Stage New Song Contest, and  Amy Speace, a veteran Nashville songwriter, of whom the Washington Post says, “Her velvety, achy voice recalls an early Lucinda Williams. Sounding grounded but wounded… Speace exudes the vulnerability of someone who’s loved and lost.”

Jefferson County Library Community Read

T

wo books by William Sullivan have inspired a show called Oregon Hikes Inspire Creative Expression at Art Adventure Gallery in Madras. The show will include quilts, photographs and paintings by Sullivan’s wife, Janell Sorensen. Opening reception will be April 4, 5:30-7pm.     To celebrate Jefferson County’s 2013 Community Read Book selections by Sullivan, including Listening for Coyote: a Walk across Oregon’s Wilderness and Cabin Fever: Memoirs of a Part-Time Pioneer, Sorensen will be a featured artist at Art Adventure Gallery. Janell Sorensen Sullivan’s books are also the inspiration for Jefferson County Quilters, local photographer Bill Vollmer and a virtual tour of the amazing beauty of nature captured in a Google Earth Tour of Sullivan’s 1,361 mile solo backpacking trek in 1985 put together by Warm Springs librarian Craig Graham and Forest Service cartographer Bruce Wright.

Sorensen describes her technique, “My striagraphic interpretation of Oregon’s national park, Crater Lake, projects strata onto the landscape to show the dynamism of the exploded volcano. The illustration is actually a small study for the final work.” Sorensen explores Oregon and the world for her inspiration. “Most of my work comes to life amid the paint tubes, brushes and easels of my Eugene studio.” Well-known Madras photographer Bill Vollmer plans to display landscape highlights seen during Broken Top Snow Sullivan’s journey from the Southern Oregon coast to the Wallowa Mountains in Northeastern Oregon. Retired from the military, Vollmer’s work includes landscapes, publicity photos for local media and fine art through his studio, Mountain Photo and Graphics. 541-475-7701 or www.artadventuregallery.com.

"One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well." Virginia Woolf From A Room of One's Own


Contemporary Oregon Trail Cuisine at Aspen Lakes’ Brand 33 by LINDEN GROSS, One Stop Writing Shop

Dining

M

y friends and I arrived at Brand 33 at Aspen Lakes in Sisters of the appetizer scallops (which I have to admit I preferred), but melted in as the last traces of the sunset washed the sky. One look from your mouth.

Nashville Sensation Blue Sky Riders at Tower

T

he new trio of three veteran singer/songwriters comes to Bend’s Tower Theatre for their first and only Northwest concert. Blue Sky Riders – Kenny Loggins, Georgia Middleman and Gary Burr – showcase their award-winning careers and compositions Thursday, April 18 at 7:30pm. A local opening act will be announced shortly. The creative spark that evolved into Blue Sky Riders was first struck in 2008 when Kenny Loggins, one of the premiere voices in modern popular music, joined forces with Gary Burr, one of Nashville’s most accomplished writers. “When we sang together, we sounded like brothers,” said Loggins. “The last time I experienced that kind of blend was with Jimmy Messina in 1971.” They decided on the spot to form a band, but wanted to add a third, female voice. Burr recruited singer/songwriter Georgia Middleman, who has worked with and written hits for Keith Urban, Faith Hill and Martina McBride. Blue Sky Riders was born with a unique blend of three-part harmonies, and three consummate performers taking turns as lead singer. The Riders released their debut album, Finally Home, in January. 541-317-0700 or TowerTheatre.org. Photo courtesy of The Tower

An Intimate Evening with Molly Ringwald

O

ne of the most iconic teenage movie stars brings her lifelong love of American standards and jazz classics to Bend’s Tower Theatre in an intimate and revealing night of stories and song on Saturday, April 13 at 7:30pm. An entire generation grew up with Molly Ringwald through John Hughes’ landmark films Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink.  They saw her star in Broadway revivals of Cabaret and Sweet Charity. In the past few years, Ringwald penned two bestsellers. The first, Getting the Pretty Back, celebrates turning 40 and, she says, “being the sexiest, funniest, smartest, best-dressed and most confident woman you can be.” The second is a novel, When It Happens to You. She currently appears in and sings the theme to ABC Family’s breakout hit, The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Her debut CD, Except…Sometimes, will be released by Concord Records on April 9. An homage to the Great American Songbook, the carefully chosen selection of nine standards is capped off by Ringwald’s take on The Breakfast Club’s, “Don’t You (Forget About Me).” Molly Ringwald is the last of eight acts in Bend Surgery Center’s 2012-13 CenterStage Series. Mountain View Heating is the showcase sponsor. Central Oregon Radiology and Deschutes Brewery are supporting sponsors. Sally Russell is the performance sponsor. Deschutes River Ale is the night’s featured beer. 541-317-0700 or TowerTheatre.org.

Bend Follies Lowers the Bar to Raise Funds for Tower n an effort to put some “fun” back in “fundraising,” the Tower Theatre Foundation launches its first major event to celebrate and underwrite the important role the nonprofit plays in the cultural life of Central Oregon. The Bend Follies is a lighthearted, fast-paced variety show starring prominent business, civic, educational and entertainment leaders showing off their singing, dancing and joke-telling skills. The Follies opens Friday, April 26 and, appropriately, closes the next night, Saturday, April 27. The Follies will spotlight performances (we use the term loosely) by Bob Shaw, Mary Barackman (a.k.a. Little Caesar’s Lady), Tim Casey, Mosley Wotta, Maralyn Thoma, Betsy Warriner, Chuck Arnold, Lava City Roller Dolls, Kristi Miller, Pamela Hulse Andrews, Michael LaLonde and many others. Both evenings will have silent and live auctions, featuring a condo in Cabo. And exclusive to the Follies will be opportunities for audience members to use cash, checks and credit cards

to “vote” for their favorite act to receive a “Gratuitous Standing Ovation” each night. “The Bend Follies is cheaper than the Book of Mormon, and closer than the High Desert Museum,” said Ray Solley, executive director of the Tower Theatre Foundation, and executive producer of the fundraiser. “We just want everyone to feel good about Bend, the Tower, their somewhat-talented friends and neighbors – and to leave the event with very little money left in their wallets.” Hosted by Donna James (The Mountain 99.7 FM) and David Simpson (The Producers; KPOV’s Big Screen/ Little Screen), the Bend Follies can be described as Saturday Night Live meets a fifth grade pageant.

A

ward-winning vocalist Madeleine Peyroux’s new album, The Blue Room, features a fine selection of original and covered tunes, highlighted by her soulful, Billie Holiday-esque voice. Peyroux’s album sees the genre-blending singer with her husky voice reworking some landmark musical charms, in collaboration with longtime Peyroux producer Larry Klein ( Joni Mitchell, Walter Becker, Tracy Chapman, Herbie Hancock). The result, using swing influences, a midtempo style, a piano solo, light drumming and bass, is a sophisticated album that fuses musical styles together to create a rapturing sound. “The only thing that matters is the song,” says singer-songwriter Madeleine Peyroux. That conviction along with a ‘one of a kind’ voice has carried the Jazz artist from the streets of Paris at only 15 touring with blues and jazz bands, all the way to mainstream recognition. “Someone gave me early Columbia recordings with Billie Holiday and instructed me to learn the songs,” Peyroux explains. She grasped not just the melody changes, choice of tone and phrasing but the power of the iconic artist’s presence. Through intensely distinctive renditions of old classics and modern tunes by the likes of Leonard Cohen and The Beatles, Peyroux has proved to be an uncannily insightful ‘interpreter’ with her consistently impeccable choice of material. “Madeleine and I decided to branch out to other songs we love,” explains Klein, so alongside tunes from the original ABC Paramount project such as Bye Bye Love, Born To Lose, You Don’t Know Me and Randy Newman’s I Can’t Stop Loving You, Warren Zevon’s Desperadoes Under The Eaves and John Hartford’s Gentle On My Mind. Madeleine is at a nexus of styles, blending Jazz, Blues, Country and Pop. With the insightful accompaniment of Dean Parks’ guitars, Jay Bellerose’s atmospheric drumming, David Piltch’s bass and as in Dance Me to the End of Love, Larry Goldings smart piano, Peyroux sheds an enticing new light on the familiar classic. It’s a long way from the streets of Paris but according to online highlights: where others may be content basking in the glow of praising reviews, this charmingly humble musician bravely explores new grounds showing that like jazz itself she is willing to take new chances. by Pamela Hulse Andrews

Delta Machine Depeche Mode

T

he English techno-pop band, Depeche Mode has release their new CD, Delta Machine and the cyber world has come alive with over whelming response. Made up of members Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, Andrew Fletcher and Vince Clarke, D e p e c h e Mode began in 1980, in the blue-collar London suburb of Basildon. Often taking the train to their early gigs, the group leaned towards smaller electronic instruments partly because they were easy to transport and needed no amplification. After a mere 365 days, the band began recording and released their first album, Speak and Spell, which quickly became a best seller all over England. Following the release of this album, main songwriter Vince Clark decided to leave the band only to be replaced by Alan Wilder. Since then, the band has been going strong with 48 songs and 12 top albums on the U.K. charts. They have also had a number of singles hop across the pond to land upon the top American charts, making them one of the most successful electronic bands in musical history. So what about this album? Constantly shifting, this group of songs can be very hit or miss depending on which kind of Depeche Mode listeners enjoy most. Certain songs wonderfully resemble past tracks that have been reborn while others pay tribute to the bands popular beginnings in the 1980s. However, the group has stayed true to itself as far as the main body of sound; there are still beautiful harmonies and guitar parts paired with electronic sound effects that don’t seem to belong yet somehow find a home in each song regardless. This album also premiers the band’s take on blues, which is distinctly their own (just like most things Depeche Mode). Overall, the album is very busy with many evolving sounds and ideas that tend to play out well or at least surprise listeners in some way. If nothing else, the single that was leaked to promote this album, Heaven, deserves to be set on repeat for a day or two. Nevertheless, whether readers listen to it once or a hundred times, the song will undoubtedly be heard for hours as it repeats in their head over and over again. by Mitch Grimmett

Who is Seth MacFarlane? Music is Better Than Words

W

ho is Seth MacFarlane other than the most recent multi-talented Oscar host? Actually the credits are numerous: actor, singer/dancer, animator, screenwriter, comedian, producer and director: creator of the show Family Guy, co-creator of American Dad! and The Cleveland Show for which he also voices many of the show’s various characters. MacFarlane may have come under fire for some of the raunchy humor he employed during the Oscars, but he doesn’t have to rest his reputation on one show he hosted. His most recent claim to fame was his first feature-length comedy film, Ted. The film stars Mark Wahlberg as an adult who, as a kid, wished his teddy bear would come to life. MacFarlane voiced and provided motion capture for the bear. MacFarlane’s jokes at the Oscars, which included a musical number aimed at the Best Actress nominees called We Saw Your Boobs and a joke about Chris Brown and Rihanna, didn’t sit well with some viewers. (Django is a movie where a woman is subjected to violence, or as we call it, a Chris Brown and Rihanna date movie.) But people have complained for years that the Oscars were boring and irrelevant and the producers were pleased with MacFarlane’s performance. But here’s the thing that stood out for me: he’s a superb song and dance man which led me to find his CD, Music is Better Than Words, where he proves to be an exceptionally smooth ‘crooner.’ In his early years, MacFarlane trained as a pianist and singer with Lee and Sally Sweetland, the vocal coaches of Barbra Streisand and Frank Sinatra. MacFarlane is an experienced live performer, playing to sold out audiences at London’s Royal Albert Hall and New York’s Carnegie Hall, as well as lending his time and voice to numerous charity benefits. In 2012, it was announced he would again appear at the Proms with the John Wilson Orchestra in a concert celebrating Broadway musicals. He signed a record deal with Universal Republic Records and released his debut studio album, Music Is Better Than Words, in 2011. MacFarlane said at the time, “It’s rare in this day and age to have the opportunity to create an album that celebrates the classic, sophisticated sound of rich, lush swing orchestrations. It will be an absolute joy to sing this music, and I look forward to working with the entire team at Universal Republic on what we intend to make an exceptional project.” MacFarlane delivered a fully orchestrated album of 1940’s and ‘50’s classic show tunes. With his recent Emmy nomination for Music & Lyrics, MacFarlane felt that the timing was right to release his debut solo album. A music enthusiast, MacFarlane is known as one of the few showrunners in Hollywood who utilizes a complete orchestra and talented composers on a weekly basis to score his three animated shows. In addition to showtunes, the album features some original material, including the song She’s Wonderful Too written by Joel McNeely for an episode of the Lucasfilms television series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. Composed as a short piece for the show, MacFarlane and McNeely (with the blessing of George Lucas) composed additional lyrics and melodies to make a new and more complete song. The album was recorded in the legendary Capitol Records Recording Studio where Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Rosemary Clooney and many others recorded prolific albums. The production replicated the same microphones, mic pre-amps and signal chains that those recordings used. MacFarlane’s album was nominated in the “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album category” at the 54th Grammy Awards. Music is Better than Words received a score of 52 out of 100 on Metacritic’s compilation of music critic reviews. by Pamela Hulse Andrews

A

New Perspective For April by Eileen Lock

pril will be a very busy month with lots of changes. Look for opportunities on the 1st and be ready to be surprised. Enjoy what you discover on the 6th as your heart leads the way. The New Moon on the 10th is filled with new beginnings and it’s time to be honest about what you really want. Remind yourself that you deserve to be happy. Decisions bring completion near the 13th and it will be time to speak your truth. Action taken on the 17th will be effective and you will understand that your life is moving in a new direction. Trust what happens next and realize it is not necessary to explain yourself. Announcements on the 20th are surprising and it will be important to believe in yourself.  Conversations are all about change over the next few days so stay flexible with your plans. The Full Moon on the 25th is a time to let go of your fears and let your heart heal. The last few days of the month is a great time to take action based on blind faith. Check in with yourself and be sure that you are being nice to you. Nurturing yourself will help you move through the changes more easily. Love and Light Always, Eileen Lock Clairvoyant Astrologer, 541-389-1159, www.eileenlock.freeservers.com, www.oneheartministry.freeservers.com.
