Louisville Art Gallery

"What I Created During Steve’s Winter Vacation”

First show of 2008 featuring all Gallery Artists

Opening Reception

Sunday Afternoon

March 16, 2008 1-4 pm

Mood created by jazz guitarist George Walker

Sunday afternoon, March 16, is the opening reception for
“What I Created During Steve’s Winter Vacation”
This is a group show featuring most of the Gallery artists, and some really great stuff has come in. Looking forward to getting the doors opened and getting the art year started. Please note the reception has been changed to Sunday afternoon.
 Another event in March is a performance by Boston based singer-songwriter
Edie Carey. Touring internationally since 1999, Edie has shared stages with Norah Jones, Leo Kottke, Ani DiFranco, Jonatha Brooke, Catie Curtis, Lucy Kaplansky, and Sandra Bernhard. She was asked to perform at The Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City and on Ed McMahon's "Next Big Star" ("Star Search"), and has had her songs featured on The WB's "Charmed" and MTV's "Road Rules.
She was recently a featured act on Public Radio International’s “Mountain Stage,” and “When I Was Made” was a finalist for Album of the Year in the 2003 Independent Music Awards.

Edie will be performing on Saturday evening, March 29, at 8pm, and is bringing along special guest, Elana Arian, a New York based multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter.

This should be a great show, so call for tickets soon

as there is very limited seating for this type of event

One last thing you may be interested in is a free showing of the NET produced documentary depicting the state of Omaha’s art world titled “Fighting for the Arts”. This takes place at 7pm at The P.S. Collective, 6056 Maple Street. An open discussion with producer Joel Geyer will follow, along with some small presentations form local artists.

Alright, time to get back to work. Hope you all have a great week, and I look forward to seeing you Sunday afternoon. Your friend on the local art scene

Joy in Mudville
Out of the Freezer - Finally
We have sprouts in the laundry room!!
About the last week of February every year the little peat pods come out. They look like fat brown poker chips until you pour a little water on them, and bam, they expand into short little brown pods of peat, just perfect for your pepper or tomato seeds. You select seeds from the catalog, order, wait, plant, label, water, wait, hope, peek, pray put your electric blanket underneath to keep those precious sprouts toasty, and then when the shelves at Earl May are full of plants you pitch these spindly anemic looking sprout pods into the compost bin and buy a trailer full of the good stuff.
This is the same every year, kinda like salmon swiming up stream or something - (good news for grizzlies
This is a defense mechanism of some kind. Some form of denial that makes you believe that it is almost gardening time, when you have nothing going but ice, more ice and snow.
Well, the good news is we have officially turned the corner, on one of the coldest crummy winters in a long time, and now it is time to get out there and DO something!!
That Means Mud
Whatever the activity is this weekend,
I am pretty sure it is gonna involve
slogging through mud of some kind.
Hey, I got a new Leaf Blower for Christmas!!
