Jerri Lisk showing at the Art Spirit Gallery



Family Tree

Meet artist Jerri Lisk and see 25 of her latest works at The Art Spirit Gallery, 415 Sherman in Coeur d'Alene starting this Friday evening, February 10. The opening reception is from 5-8pm. Then watch Jerri give an informal demonstration and talk in the gallery starting at 1pm on Saturday. The show continues through March 3. Lisk layers acrylic paint over an unusual 'canvas' of sanded aluminum to create a luminous yet modern, contemporary surface with subtle and enduring depth.

Jerri Lisk has made her home in the northwest amongst the mountain and desert scenes and trees that often populate her unusual acrylic-on-aluminum paintings. She brings the shape and color of nature to life for us indoors, especially the rugged landscape surrounding her Boise, Idaho home. That's where she and her husband/photographer Mark operate the Lisk Gallery. She has been featured locally in The Idaho Statesman, as well as nationally in Southwest Art and Good Housekeeping.

Love those Cowboy Love Songs

This Friday night, February 10 at 8 join Wylie and the Wild West at the Bing Crosby theatre for Cowboy Love Songs. The secret of Wylie's honest, soulful music isn't in any musical formula or flashy gimmick. Its purity lies in Wylie's character: earnest and hard-working, beaming with friendly vigor, topped off with a smile as warm as first sunlight rising over the prairie. Despite his successful career as one of America's most recognized and unique entertainers, Wylie still gets up everyday and tends to the livestock on his quarter horse ranch near Conrad, Montana. It grounds him and is the backbone of his art. Wylie's special cowboy blend of Americana music, served up with a helping of infectious energy, gets the crowd going every time. Ticketswest has your seats at www.ticketswest.com or 800-325-SEAT.

Tuna Does Vegas extended through Saturday at Interplayers




'Tuna Does Vegas' is at Interplayers, extended through this Saturday, February 11. The lovable and eccentric characters from the 'third smallest town in Texas' reunite as the whole place decides to descend on 'Sin City.' The play balances both an affectionate commentary and a hilarious satire on small-town life.

The Tuna townspeople, Vegas showgirls, Elvis impersonators and more are portrayed by only two actors, Spokane favorites, Michael Weaver and Patrick Treadway. They'll be reunited with their partner of two previous Tuna plays, Bill Marlowe. That makes for an especially memorable night of theatre. Go to Interplayers.com for show information and Ticketswest has your seats at www.ticketswest.com or 800-325-SEAT.

The Warmth of Aloha this winter at the Fox




Hawaiian music legends, the Brothers Cazimero, will bring their special aloha to the stage at the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox on Saturday, February 18, at 7 pm. Performing with the Spokane Symphony, conducted by Morihiko Nakahara, and also performing alone, the Brothers Cazimero are consummate performers who have made their indelible imprint on the face of contemporary Hawaiian music. Their talent, longevity and sales success have placed them in a league of their own, untouched by any other performer in the history of Hawaiian music.

Remarkable entertainers on stage, The Brothers Cazimero achieve a full-bodied sound that emanates from two traditional instruments, the acoustic bass and a twelve-string guitar. They are masters of their craft - their musicianship and stylish vocals blend to produce a style that is now part of the fabric of Hawaiian history. The men of Halau Na Kamalei and the ladies of the Royal Dance Company have always accompanied Robert and Roland on stage telling intricate stories with the hula. Thirty years of successful concerts is an indication of their exceptional fan base and wide appeal.

The Brothers Cazimero have taken the beauty of Hawaiian music and dance for encore performances in Carnegie Hall in New York City (including a performance with the New York Pops), Wolftrap and Hollywood Bowl, as well the World Expo in Brisbane, Australia, Hong Kong, Tokyo; and annual performances in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle to sell out crowds. The Grammy-nominated duo was inducted into the Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame in 2006 and 2007, joining the ranks of Hawaiian music legends. Fast forward to 2008...in March, The Brothers Cazimero were recognized by their peers and received lifetime achievement awards from the Hawai'i Academy of Recording Arts.

Before the concert, beginning at 6 pm, there will be a demonstration of Hawaiian traditions in the lobby by local students who have been coached by University Hawaiian Club members.

Ticket prices begin at $20 and are available in advance with personalized service at the Spokane Symphony Ticket Office, located at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox, 1001 W. Sprague, or by calling 509-624-1200. Tickets may be purchased online at www.spokanesymphony.org. Tickets are also available at all TicketsWest outlets or by calling 1-800-325-SEAT.
