You’ve got one more week to visit (or revisit) our IN THE WATER convergent program, which features KC Adams’ exhibition BIRCHBARK TECHNOLOGY, and the community incubators WATER (re)SOURCE and ROOT LOVE.
Through a Different Lens, showing at the Pearl Ellis Gallery February 18-March 7, is their first exhibit of prints. “It was a scramble to put this show together. The opportunity came when someone dropped out of the Gallery’s 2020 schedule, we had a few weeks to each select five prints. There wasn’t time to develop a unified theme, so it is an eclectic collection of images,” said Tony Gusman.
People are also invited to participate in the ROOT LOVE community incubator and exhibition. Bring non-invasive plant cuttings to the gallery for rooting in water in the living wall installation in the CVAG window gallery. In exchange, you can take home rooted plants from the Gallery.

The Friday concert will be a cd release party, showcasing the Trio’s latest double album, Tongue & Groove. Each cut is honed to perfection and represents a back-to-basics visitation on what the band does best — spontaneity of the stage and rapid-fire, improvisational exchanges. Collins loves to sing so Tongue & Groove, is a double set of 11 vocal songs (Tongue) and 11 instrumentals (Groove), and it’s the best of both worlds, marking a new stage in the life of the Andrew Collins Trio.
