Live Music: Doug Smith (and Judy Koch Smith), Master of contemporary fingerstyle acoustic guitar
"Acoustic Guitarist Doug Smith is a Grammy Award Winner and the 2006 winner of the prestigious Winfield International Fingerstyle Guitar Competition." Also, "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.” To learn more about Doug and his music visit his website at: www.dougsmithguitar.com.
New Art by January’s Featured Local Artists:
Cheri Holly, ceramics and pottery
“Cheri Holly is a ceramic artist living in Portland, Oregon. A registered nurse by day, she has recently found expression for her natural artistic abilities through the creation of hand-built pottery, and the result is a wonderful combination of both art and utility. From dinnerware to planting vases, coffee mugs to serving platters her work reflects a personal interest in nature, gardening, sea shells and antique embroidery – all of which she incorporates visually and texturally in her designs.” www.cheriholly.com
Hal Payne Design, metal shadowboxes
Food by Class Cooking, Chef Emilee Mahan
