Second "Art & Music" Event

 A group of about 15 people attended the second of our "Art & Music" events at the LAC Art Center on Sunday, September 16.  This series teams a well-known artist with a local musician to provide an afternoon of enrichment and enjoyment. This event featured June Davis working in pastels and Rick Weingarten performing on the vibraphone.
  June did a beautiful pastel painting of a white ceramic pitcher set against a dark background. She explained her process as the group watched her still life painting progress.
 LAC Events Co-ordinator Melinda Fiscus introduced musician Rick Weingarten.
 Rick explained about the different parts of the vibraphone then entertained everyone with a selection of lovely melodies - from Hawaiian to Costa Rican themes, with even a little Elvis thrown into the mix.  He is a relaxed and personable performer who provided us with a wonderful afternoon. 

Whether it was the wine, cheese and chocolate treats, the lovely art demonstration or the soothing music - everyone went home feeling good and ready to face the week.
