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.

The Bloomington Songwriter Showcase presents – Monika Herzig, Steve Boller, Rick LeDune, dwBrykalski TONIGHT!

07:00 pm to 09:00 pm
Bears Place - 1316 East Third St., Bloomington IN 47401

Monika Herzig (www.MonikaHerzig.com) is a professor at Indiana University – who often performs at Bears Place with her Jazz group. She came to Indiana as a young girl pursuing her music on a scholarship – moving from Germany and ultimately – making Bloomington IN her home. We are certainly glad she did that! Her songs are often improvised on the spot (talk about your new tunes) and she is a delightful personality addition for any Showcase. Steve Boller (www.SteveBoller.com) is a young man from Indianapolis who has developed a nice following with our Audience. He is an extremely strong vocalist and songwriter – very young sound and we love that about him. Rick LeDune (https://myspace.com/awesomepossumproject) is as Southern Country Rock as it gets – with music often laced with humor. He is truly fun, and his songs are skillfully written – VERY Nashville TN sound with a Hoosier kick. dwBrykalski – aka -David Weirhake (http://www.dwbrykalski.com/#!gallery) is a thoughtful, soft-spoken Singer-Songwriter with sentimental lyrics and lovely chord progressions. His songs are often accompanied with stories about them – and this fellow enjoys entertaining his Audience . . . we appreciate him too.
