Street Level: Community Scenes

By Hand Gallery

Tom Rhea was trained as a painter at Indiana University, where he graduated with a
BFA. After twenty years in the demanding field of medallic arts, his paintings still retain a very sculptural feel, with an emphasis on the unique limestone architecture that distinguishes the IU campus. Besides providing celebrity portraits for publications such as The Wall Street Journal, LA Weekly, and XXL Magazine, he has written extensively on arts topics for local and national publications. He currently teaches drawing and History of Art at Ivy Tech Community College. While most are views of Bloomington, the show also contains two paintings from a recent trip to Italy, including a view of the ancient city of Matera, carved into the limestone cliffs in the southern region of Puglia. These paintings were executed in gouache, an opaque watercolor, over the past five years.

Opal Fly, Steev Wisher & Jack Diamonds – TONIGHT! Bloomington Songwriter Showcase

07:30 pm to 09:30 pm
Bears Place - 1316 East Third St., Bloomington IN 47401

Opal Fly (https://www.facebook.com/opal.fly.1?fref=ts) stole the hearts of the Bloomington residents when she came to town a couple of years ago. She’s spent some time traveling from her hometown in Southern IN – and during that time on the road – ended up in New Orleans for a good bit of time – where she picked up her distinctive style. This little gal plays saxophone and sings like a star – not to mention having songs that keep folks tapping’ their toes. Steev Wisher (http://double-eband.com) is one of the 3 folks who help organize and run the Bloomington Songwriter Showcase. He performs his Rock oriented music on several instruments, but his favorite is his 12 string guitar. His lyrics are beautiful and his sense of humor is becoming one of the favorite parts of the Showcase as he gives his ‘half-time’ announcements. Jack Diamonds (no website given) is the new kid on the block having moved here from Michigan recently – now residing in Worthington IN. He’s young, he’s UBER talented and he’s going to be in good company this evening as we welcome him to his first Showcase.
NO COVER CHARGE – Must be at least 21 to enter.
