Rebecca Clark: Along the River

Along the River
pastels by Rebecca Clark
May 6 through June 27
Reception: Sunday, May 15, 4-6pm
Music: TBA

Salmon Falls Gallery has loved the artwork of Deerfield artist Rebecca Clark since 2010 when she first started exhibiting here. Her works give one the best of pastel drawing, a soft tactile look combined with intense color, all blended into the fanciful abstractions she calls her Patty Pan Series, her works in pastel.

The drawing titled Along the River is #296 in the Patty Pan Series and it is the piece anchoring this solo exhibit. Some images are easily identified as being truly along the river; you will recognize the mountains, sky and flora. Other drawings move away from the representational sense of this rare place and brief moment of time we spend here. Clark lives near the Deerfield River and among the rolling hills just south of Greenfield. Her work reflects the harmony between the lovely silvery water, towering hills, abundant flowers and greens, and those ever changing clouds above. It also begs us to play and imagine the scenes in a completely new way, maybe the way the 4-year-old within each of us might see lollipop trees towering over hills that look small and quite manageable against their size.

Come meet the artist, and let yourself play with her images, a task completely good for your soul! Exhibit runs through June 27, reception is Sunday, May 15, 4-6pm. For directions and more information go to www.SalmonFallsGallery.com.

Valley Talent Showcase

Fun—Prizes—Celebrity Judges

First Friday of Every Month 8:00pm- Starting Oct 2

Are you a singer-songwriter or a band with creative talent? A singer with an amazing voice? A dancer that can mesmerize an audience? Or someone who has comic or some other unique entertainment talent? Then sign up and head down to The Valley Talent Showcase, a fun monthly live performance event designed to show off exciting new talent in the “Learning Corridor” (Springfield/Hartford/Pioneer Valley) area. Prizes will include awesome gift certificates ($50-$100) to local area businesses as well as cash prizes. Judges will include local area celebrities (elected officials, well known musicians, and other local figures).

Potential performers may include anyone living in this area.   These events will not only give the public an opportunity to see the many talented local performers that we are privileged to have in our area but will also provide a platform for these performers to create a buzz that can help kick-start a performing career. Potential performers can be from any form of artistic expression and can be solo or group acts.

While it is a “contest” with celebrity judges and cool prizes, it is presented in a low pressure non-threatening atmosphere that will make all contestants comfortable. Each performer will have a maximum of 8-10 minutes depending upon the number of contestants. Creativity and originality will receive bonus points. At each monthly event prizes will be given for the best first and second place performers. Individual scores will not be announced.

To be a contestant send an email with your name, address, email, photo/video or audio sample (or web link) of your suggested performance to marksherry@gatewaycityarts.com. Please also note if you are 21 or older. A house sound system, guitar & bass amps and a drum set will be available for your use as necessary.

A suggested donation of $3 at the door will go towards providing cash prizes to the winners. If you’d like to be a sponsor of these events please contact Mark Sherry at the address above.

Gateway City Live is a new performance venue in Holyoke, Massachusetts dedicated to providing a platform for a wide variety of innovative creative performers as well as new, emerging artists.
