Join us for our fun tradition of First Friday at BBC!
Art- Jean Schwalbe
"Jean's impressionistic paintings become almost a surprise to the viewer as the colors are not what one would expect to find in a landscape. Jean captures energy by pushing the color palette to rich, warm and vivid hues. Originally a watercolorist who studied under George Hamilton, Jean has been painting acrylics for the past ten years. They give her more "freedom" and using "lots of paint is more fun". And it is certainly more fun for the viewer! Whether painting rushing streams and rivers, familar Oregon mountains, meadows, clouds or all of the above together, she captures a special intensity and vitality found in nature."
Music: Doug Smith
"Acoustic Guitarist Doug Smith is a Grammy Award Winner and the 2006 winner of the prestigious Winfield International Fingerstyle Guitar Competition. His playing has been heard on the big screen in the popular 2007 film August Rush and his original compositions are heard everywhere from NPR to TCM to Martha Stewart to Good morning America. His playing combines folk, classical and jazz elements and has been called “a cross between Chet Atkins, Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges.”
