Jentel Artist Residency Program is pleased to present this month’s residents in an event open to the public. “Jentel Presents” will take place Tuesday, March 1, 2011 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at SAGE Space, in the Historic Train Depot on Fifth and Broadway, across from The Sheridan Inn. This month’s presenters include a fiction writer, painter, printmaker, novelist, fiber artist, and a photographer. “Jentel Presents” is a community outreach program that features visual presentations and readings by the visual artists and writers at the residency.
Presenters include: Kate Blakinger, Hollidaysburg, PA; A fiction writer, Kate has kayaked along the Alaskan coast, gone caving in Puerto Rico and wandered through Moroccan cities. Places often inspire her stories. Eric Elliott, Seattle, WA; A painter, Eric narrowly avoided death many times during his childhood. He struggled from far-off Alaska to travel the world, lived in many places, studied at one of the best schools in the country and began his life as an artist. Nyla Hurley, Laramie, WY; A printmaker, Nyla is a quiet country girl by day and a fervent print nerd by night. She appreciates good friends, great food and good beer. David Samuel Levinson, Berlin; A novelist, David is a Texan, but left Texas for NYC, then left NYC for Berlin. He studied Spanish, Italian and Russian. German? It was never on his mind! Gerri Sayler, Moscow, ID; A fiber artist, Gerri can’t think of any work she’d rather do now than create sculpture with her hands, fibers and space. It thrills her to the bone. Cathrine Walters, Missoula, MT; A photographer, Cathrine is originally from Wisconsin, where she left her family to pursue an idea, a dream, a landscape out West. It took the death of her father to make her realize how precious every moment, every relationship, every day is.
For anyone looking for a stimulating evening, come join the crowd at the SAGE Space, at the Historic Train Depot, Fifth and Broadway. Free. Refreshments are available.
