Susan Wahlrab: Seasons
City:Stowe

The North Gallery of West Branch hosts Susan Wahlrab’s new exhibition entitled Seasons and is on view through August 31.

Their influence is clearly evidenced, yet viewed up close, one is surprised to see tiny pools, miniscule etchings in the wash of color, like watery hieroglyphics. Almost encaustic in their layered density, the paintings look and feel wet from the coating of glossy clear varnish.

New York, NY (July 28, 2015) – Singer-songwriter Evangeline is to perform at the well-known music venue, Radio Bean in Burlington, VT on Saturday, August 29, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. She will perform songs from her debut album, Verbatim, as well as some covers of famous hits. Her soulful jazz-pop mix of singing, together with instruments such as ukulele, guitar, piano, and electric kazoo give her a unique and playful sound. The use of humor, tap-dance, harmonizing and looping provide an entertaining live show. Performing artist Sara Bareilles credited Evangeline with “[A] great voice and really unique sound.” Rich in poetic beauty and packed with harmonic wordplay, her debut album Verbatim offers several racks including the title track, Verbatim. Her music can be previewed and purchased through iTunes or Spotify. Nightly live music and a light menu of bagels, panini and baked goods keep the Radio Bean a hip and hopping local hangout. Every night of the week offers a variety of local bands and performers.
