About Wyatt LeGrand: In addition to teaching and working from his Bloomfield studio, LeGrand regularly travels to paint on location, including annual plein air excursions to the western states. LeGrand’s work has been regularly exhibited across the country and recognized by the Oil Painters of America and American Impressionist Society. In 2016, LeGrand was acknowledged by Southwest Art Magazine in their annual “21 Under 31” feature.

Brief Artist’s Statement: “…whether it be the colors of a landscape, the shapes of an interior space, or the movement of a busy street, my painting reflects the need to preserve desirable aesthetic experiences and communicate my human response to the subject before me. I say let things be spontaneous… paint what interests you, paint what confuses you, paint anything you wish as long as you paint more quickly than slowly, as the moment won’t last forever.”

Westward Bound

02:00 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater
http://bctboxoffice.org/event/westward-bound/

Come one, come all! Join us and experience the fanfare of a western town full of flips, flops, follies, and a feud where ultimately friendship prevails.

The Stage Flight Circus Arts studio will present aerial performances, feats of strength, and beautiful choreography in this performance filled with enough action, music, and lights to lasso your heart. This show is appropriate for young buckaroos but adults will love it too.

The stage is built out into the orchestra pit for this performance and patrons seated in the lower balcony and the first few rows of the upper balcony may not be able to see the entire stage. If you prefer to sit in the balcony, we recommend sitting up high for an amazing view of the action!
