AEGON Gallery (inside Jones Visual Art Center), Danville KY

 
“Diving in the Pool” is an art exhibit by Kensuke Yamada, Visiting Assistant Professor of Art. Kensuke is a nationally recognized sculptor whose figurative works explore ideas of communication – both personal and universal. He uses gestures, textures, and patterns to relate simple, yet meaningful body language and facial expressions, all the while creating a rhythm that brings his figures to life. Yamada earned a B.A. in studio art from The Evergreen State College, and an M.F.A. in studio art from The University of Montana.

Stories of the Blues – Personal Anecdotes From Blues Musicians
This moderated lecture/discussion will feature musicians from the Music Makers Blues Revue, an all-star band and power cell of the Music Makers Relief Foundation. An essential part of the Hillsborough, N.C.-based non-profit, Music Maker Relief Foundation assists lesser known aging artists who made huge contributions to American musical traditions and have fallen on hard times, Music Maker Blues Revue is a rotating cast of soul and blues ringers. The photographs of some of these performers are on display as part of a Music Maker Relief Foundation photography exhibition, “Our Living Past,” on loan to the Norton Center until April. The convocation will offer participants insights into the lives of blues musicians; and in particular, some who have lived the challenging lives often characterized in the Blues genre of music.

The Music Maker Blues Revue
The Music Maker Blues Revue
Norton Center for the Arts – Newlin Hall, Danville KY

 
With the popular resurgence of Americana, blues, and traditional music, the Music Maker Blues Revue artists serve as musical masters. The Music Maker Relief Foundation, a North Carolina-based non-profit, was founded to preserve the musical traditions of the South by directly supporting the musicians who make it. It started by helping a small group of elderly blues musicians still performing the musical traditions of the 19th- and early 20th-century America.
