Carol Peacock Exhibition May 2 - June 21

Local artist Carol Peacock will have an exhibit at Redmen Hall from Saturday, May 2nd through Sunday, June 21st.  Carol speaks about her art:

Grace
"With each painting I create, I strive to show the expressions of love, kindness, joy and ecstasy on the faces of spiritual beings.  That is my  message... we are spirits with bodies with all the attributes of the universe available to us eternally.  I encourage everyone to meditate, to ask to be shown ones very own path of creativity that empowers to be the one can be and to share it with all mankind.  In this way we contribute to the process of evolution."

Carol Peacock grew up in a military family and spent her formative years in Europe. The exposure to the culture, ancient architecture, and the museums featuring the works of the old masters set her on the path of becoming an artist. After attending UC Berkeley she traveled extensively then spent many years in San Francisco painting and working with Children with Autism.  A move to an Art colony in Arkansas solidified her career as an artist where she showed at many galleries and had many one woman showings.  Carol has had exhibitions in Kansas City, Chicago, San Francisco, Little Rock, New Orleans, Barrington, IL (where she won best in oil) and Algonquin, IL where two of her paintings were exhibited as public art for a year at the Department of Education, and of course, in Eureka Springs, AR. Carol moved to Cathlamet in 2011 to be near to her sons and grandchildren .  This exhibit represents the paintings she has done since moving to Cathlamet.  Carol's paintings may also be seen at TSUGA Gallery, Scribbles Nail and gift Salon, and Maria's Restaurant all on Main street in down town Cathlamet.

Second Sunday Concert in April--Fisherpoets on April 12th

Friends of Skamokawa will be presenting their Second Sunday Concert this Sunday, April 12th. We are lucky to have the well known duo- David Densmore, fisherman poet and Alexa Wiley singer songwriter performing from 2 pm to 4 pm. Both of them have been active in the Fisher Poets events in Oregon and are well know here from their previous concerts at Redmen Hall. They will have their CD's available and David will be bringing his books of poetry to sell as well. David and Alexa's songs and poetry represent lives spent on the River and in the fishing communities here and in Alaska, so there is an authenticity to their music that shines. They are a group not to be missed, so we will see you there on the 12th at Redmen Hall in Skamokawa, Washington. The admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Refreshments will be served. Representatives  of the 'Riverkeepers' group will be there to discuss some of their current projects. For further information please call the Hall at 360-795-3007
