CLAIRE LYNCH HAS A NEW CD DEAR SISTER THAT HAS BEEN NOMINATED FOR 2013 BEST NEW ALBUM FOR THE INTERNATIONAL BLUEGRASS MUSIC AWARDS

The last time that The Claire Lynch Band came to the Earlville Opera House, the theater was struck by lightning – literally.  The band was that hot!  The Claire Lynch Band brings their award-winning bluegrass once again to the historic main stage on Saturday, October 5th at 8pm.  “Claire Lynch, without doubt, has one of the most beautiful voices in the music business.”1  She is backed by a red-hot band that sparkles with virtuoso musicianship.  The performance is generously sponsored by the Seven Oaks Clubhouse Restaurant.

“Claire Lynch has long been recognized as a creative force in acoustic music and at the forefront of women who have expanded the bluegrass genre. She has twice earned The International Bluegrass Music Association’s “Female Vocalist of the Year” title, as well as two GRAMMY nominations.  Dear Sister, her new album released May 28th, and nominated for the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA’s) 2013 Album of the Year, showcases Lynch and her razor sharp band.”2   Bryan McDowell, who was just nominated for an IBMA Momentum Award this year, is Claire’s fiddle player.  Bryan also claimed an unprecedented triple win for fiddle, mandolin, AND guitar at the 2009 Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas.  Matt Wingate garnered the title of MerleFest Doc Watson Guitar Champion; and Mark Schatz has two IBMA Bass Player of the Year awards.

The band is touring in support of their new CD, Dear Sister. “There’s no wimpy writing in this ten-song release. Rather, discerning listeners will feel deeply in response to honest lyrics masterfully woven. Stellar writing shines throughout…” Engine 145.com

“A sterling, silvery vocal presence and a gift for supple, emotional ornamentation…Lynch’s talent is a diamond…gorgeous voice and sense of purpose, supported by (a) superb ensemble.”      The Washington Post

The audience was treated to a concert they would never forget and the band was rewarded with a standing ovation!

Don’t miss another chance to get struck by lighting with the amazing talent of the Claire Lynch Band on Saturday, October 5th!  Tickets are available online or by calling EOH at $18, $16 EOH members, $13 students.  Premium seating in the first 4 rows is an added $5.

This sample board shows some of the different techniques of marbling with Golden Artists Colors paints

This sample board shows some of the different techniques of marbling with Golden Artists Colors paints

The Earlville Opera House presents the second the GOLDEN ARTIST COLORS SERIES WORKSHOPS this October. These classes are taught with Golden Artist Colors paints and expertise!  Sam Golden started local company in 1980; they now sell their products around the world. Their mission has been “To grow a sustainable company dedicated to creating and sharing the most imaginative and innovative tools of color, line and texture for inspiring those who turn their vision into reality”. Golden continually launches exciting new product lines and is well known for working with artists to produce excellent high quality acrylics and art materials that meet developing needs in the field.

“Marbleizing Paper and Fabric” will be on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 1st and October 2nd from 5:30 pm to 8 pm.  The process of hand marbling paper was a closely guarded secret, and even today, marbling can be frustrating to learn.  Thinned paints are floated on a thickened medium, manipulated to create patterns, and then the pattern is transferred to a prepared paper, cloth or other substrate.

This 5-hour class will show you how to prepare your materials, balance colors, and create intricate patterns.  Supplies, substrates and Golden Artist Colors Acrylics provided with the fee for marbleizing paper.  If you wish to work on fabric, please contact us so that the easy prep of your fabric can be done before the class.  The techniques are the same after the fabric is prepped.

The tuition for the workshop is  $55, $50 members includes $10 materials fee – all materials provided for working with paper.

Advance registration is required for all workshops; call 315-691-3550 to register.

Michael Townsend is an artist and employee of Golden Artist Colors, Inc. He has been with Golden over 20 years, working in the Quality Control, Research & Development, Custom Product Development, and Technical Support Departments. Michael has a BA of Studio Arts from Mansfield University, where he studied printmaking, silk-screening, sculpture and painting.

Michael has experience in mural painting, spraying, marbling, substrate preparation, varnishing and many other artist applications. In his own work he enjoys painting everything from abstracts to landscapes, using everything from paint and brushes, to airbrushes and digital tools. Michael enjoys demonstrating and teaching other artists how to use methods and materials in their own artwork.

The next class with Mike Townsend of Golden Artist Colors is Discovering Digital Mixed Media Tues-Wed, 11/5 and 11/6.  The evening classes will meet from 5:30 to 8 pm.

On September 28th, the Galleries of the Earlville Opera House welcome four artists influenced by time in very different ways. John Knecht captures moments in time in the drawings that become the foundation blocks of his animated films.  Lynn Schwarzer’s work asks, “How does the passage of time change the way that we interpret and verify information, and the sources we look to?” Anne Stillwaggon is able to render to paper a sense of place and time frequently overlooked.  Jesse Koroiwa looks to the troubled time period of the Japanese American Internment in hopes of creating a better future.

John Knecht and Lynn Schwarzer will share the East Gallery with “Drawings and Prints.”  Although primarily known as a film and video artist, John Knecht’s animated films are based on drawings done by hand with pencil and gouache on paper.  This exhibit represents the first time all of these pieces have been shown collectively.  Four were shown at the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center in Auburn last year, and two have been purchased by the Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute for their permanent collection.  Knecht holds the Russell Colgate Distinguished Professor of Art and Art History and Film and Media Studies Chair at Colgate University in Hamilton, NY, where he has been teaching since 1981.  His films, videos, and multiple channel installations have been shown all over the world.

Lynn Schwarzer will show some of her new “Field Notes” prints. Her studio is filled with original publications from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries, a collection of periodicals, books and newspapers that comprise a journey through time exploring the domain of knowledge and the implicit subjectivity of information sources, as well as how natural science and history are elucidated both in specialized and layman’s terms.  Schwarzer has long been interested in the history of museums and the politics of display, the evolution of communication technology, and the ever-present quest to transform observed mysteries into immutable facts.  She has resided in Madison County for 30 years, working as an artist and teaching printmaking and drawing in the Department of Art and Art History at Colgate University.

While fighting in Italy, Munemori fearlessly made frontal one-man attacks against German machine gun stations.  During his assault, a live grenade bounced off Munemori's helmet and rolled toward two of his comrades.  Sacrificing his life to save theirs, Munemori smothered the blast with his body and died. Nawa Munemori, his mother, was imprisoned in the Manzanar Relocation Center months after he joined the army and later accepted the award on behalf of her late son at this site."

Anne Stillwaggon exhibits “In the Distance” in the Arts Café Gallery.  She is a self-taught watercolorist inspired to capture the effects of light and water and the serenity of form she sees in landscape.  She uses watercolor and gouache and a limited palette to paint her subjects, working with brush, sponge, and steel wool to create the immutable unity of a tree line, a field, a pond, a hillside, and the sea.  Her paintings strive to convey the animate harmony of nature.  Her inspiration comes from the New Jersey shore, the Meadowlands, the Catskills, the Adirondacks, and the landscapes of Connecticut and Maine, as well the Hamilton area. .

Jesse Kuroiwa’s “Resurfacing: Sites of Violence During the Japanese American Internment” explores the present through the past, with his medium as much history as it is photography, combining images with text to illuminate a past unique to the Japanese experience with the landscape that is decidedly American.  His art aims to translate the façade of our communal memory of that period, “enduring the unbearable with patience and dignity” into “the tangible shame, pain, and injustice under the surface of the internment camps of World War II.” He has won numerous awards for his photography.  He celebrates his mixed-race heritage, as well as his time as a resident in Hawaii, Ohio, and Colorado that have shaped his sense of memory and place, though often simultaneously finding himself both an insider and an intruder.  He currently lives in Lafayette, CO and will be traveling to New York for the opening.

An artist reception provides opportunities for further exploration with the artists with light refreshments on Saturday, September 28, from 12-3 pm. The exhibits will run through November 9. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5pm and Saturday 12-3 pm. For more information, call 315-691-3550 or visit http://www.earlvilleoperahouse.com. The Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street, in Earlville.

Open Hand Theater's Giant Puppets join the Great Chocolate Fest!

Open Hand Theater’s Giant Puppets join the Great Chocolate Fest!

The Earlville Awesome House presents a free Family Series Event with Giant Puppets and three Puppet Making Workshops at the Great Chocolate Festival on Saturday, September 21st from 10:30 am to at 12:30 pm.  EOH welcomes the artists of Open Hand Theater, known for touring a repertoire of children’s performances and a workshops based on the International Mask and Puppet Museum collection of masks, puppets and stories from cultures around the world.

We are thrilled to be working with The Great Chocolate Festival again this year.  The GCF is in its fifth year and is a celebration of a unique moment in history for Hamiltonians. On September 27, 1955, an Ontario & Western (O&W) train got diverted from the main track, causing it to speed through a coal shed and crash to the ground. The good news was no one was injured; the great news was Nestle’ Crunch Bars, Chocolate Chips and Nestle’ Quik were spilled everywhere; causing it to be dubbed “The Chocolate Wreck.” Children rushed to the scene to snatch up all the chocolate they could!

This FREE event provides tons of family fun and partnerships with local and regional artists, musicians, merchants and community organizations helps blend together the artistic, cultural, educational and entertainment components of the festival, with chocolate and trains as the main themes. The rain location is the Palace Theater located on Utica St.

Note: The Great Chocolate Festival coincides with the Farmer’s Market on the Hamilton Village Green!

Schedule: 10:00am Festival START!
10:00am – 11:30am
LIVE MUSIC! TOMMY HOE AND THE BARNCATS – Locals Tommy Hoe, Dewey Dale, Wayne Daniels and Oscar Crandall will kick things off with a mix of traditional country and rootsy rock, with a couple of bluesy tunes thrown in.

10:30am – 12:30pm Open Hand Theater sponsored by the Earlville Awesome House: 
PUPPET MAKING WORKSHOPS! Open Hand Theater’s “Giant Puppets” Show will be joining The Great Chocolate Festival this year. Look for the colorful 12-foot high festival puppets that will be dancing and twirling through the crowds and interacting with onlookers! AND…there will be a Puppet Making Workshop where children can create simple jointed puppets that can be manipulated through scenes and stories! PLEASE NOTE: There will be three Puppet Making Workshops, beginning at 10:30am and taking about 30-40 minutes each. The last one will END at 12:30pm. **

Puppetry is a very ancient art form, thought to have originated about 3000 years ago. Puppets have been used since the earliest times to animate and communicate within society through visual theater.  Puppets as toys in children’s play are tools in children’s communication and often act as surrogates to express what is difficult to understand directly.

11:00am – 12:00pm
WALKING TOUR! Festival goers can take a walking tour to the nearby site where it all happened. Eyewitnesses to the actual train wreck will be on hand in the History Tent to answer questions. Volunteers are provided by the Hamilton Historic Commission. The tour will leave promptly from the clearly marked History Tent at 11am.

11:30am – 1:00pm
LIVE MUSIC! WILLIAMS ROAD – Hamilton’s own Clare Pellerin, Mike Craven, Scott Krueger, and Brad Jewett will take the stage at 11:30am. Their solid, distinctive sound has often been described as a blend of folk, roots and indie, with a deep and heavy undercurrent of Americana.

1:00pm Festival END!  More about the festival

The EOH Office and Galleries will be closed during the Great Chocolate Festival this Saturday and will open for afternoon hours from 1:30 to 3:30pm.

Open Hand Theater at the Westcott Festival!

EOH presents the artists of Open Hand Theater, known for touring a repertoire of children’s performances and a workshops based on the International Mask and Puppet Museum collection of masks, puppets and stories from cultures around the world.

The Dublin-based Irish traditional band FullSet make their main stage debut at the historic Earlville Opera House on Saturday, September 21st at 8 pm.  FullSet was named “New Group of the Year” in the Live Ireland Music Awards of 2012, and also “Best New Band” in the Irish American News Music Awards last year.  Their performance is generously sponsored by NBT Bank.

new fullset

FullSet From Ireland: Best New Band in the 2012 Irish American News Music Awards In recent years this young group has received much critical acclaim, even being compared to supergroups such as Danú & Altan by respected Irish Music Magazine.

Six talented musicians full of energy and innovation make up the band. Michael Harrison of Tipperary is the grandson of Irish fiddler Aggie Whyte, and a three-time All-Ireland fiddle champion with his smooth and free flowing style of fiddle. Martino Vacca is an exceptional uilleann piper and employs his mastery of this instrument in the intricate arrangements by FullSet. Janine Redmond of Dublin plays the button accordion, and has solo All-Ireland titles to her credit. Eamonn Moloney on bodhrán and Andy Meaney on guitar, effortlessly blend the music together with a sensitive yet driving accompaniment. The emotive singing style of Teresa Horgan completes the ensemble with her lovely voice and she makes the flute sing as well.

Director of Irish Studies, Traolach O’Riordain sums it up: “There are two kinds of musicians in Ireland…You have those who learn the traditional music in school, and those who learn it from their parents and grandparents, just as they learned it from their parents and grandparents before them, all the way back to the time God was a small boy.  FullSet falls into the latter category.

Having received critical acclaim for their debut release, Notes At Liberty, FullSet are quickly becoming one of the most well known bands in the Irish music scene.  At the release of their second CD, Notes After Dark to a packed crowd in Dublin this July, Pat Byrne noted: “Lead man and fiddler Michael Harrison displaying some amazing fiddle plucking skills throughout the night. The place was hopping with “woos” and “yeos” to songs like ‘The Glen Road to Carrick’ and a set of jigs called ‘The Green Fields of Woodford’ and calmed down to the lovely voice of Teresa Horgan to ballads like ‘Roseville Fair’ and beautiful rendition of Dick Gaughan’s ‘Both Sides of the Tweed’…Towards the end of the night, bodhrán and glockenspiel player Eamonn Moloney showed us his dancing skills which got the crowd riled for more.”
