The Entertainer, Bill McKay (Columbia Basin College)
The Columbia Basin College Arts Center is set for an exciting year of cultural events that will engage you, entertain you and make you think. We hope you will join us this year for a full menu of fine and performing arts events. We strive to make sure we have something for everyone.
On Oct. 19, the award- winning vocal jazz ensemble FreeForm will host its annual Friends and Family Concert. The concert will begin at 3 p.m. with various soloists sharing their work, and at 7 p.m. the entire ensemble will be together for an evening of vocal jazz. This concert is their first performance of the year and will be held in the CBC Theatre. It is free to the public.
The first art exhibition of the fall season is ready for viewing. The show is titled “Entre Carne Y Spiritu” and features paintings and sculptures by the artist Alejandro Mazon.
The works reflect Mazon’s Spanish/Cuban/American heritage and are as thought-provoking as they are beautiful. They are a blend of paint, collage, found objects and constructed elements.
Gallery Director Mary Dryburgh extends a special thanks to the gallery staff, Shawn Fone and Silas Merrick, for their work during the installation of this show. They are greatly appreciated by the Esvelt Gallery and the Arts Center.
The show will remain open through Oct. 24.
The Community Lecture Series is delighted to present “Stories in Stone: Travels Through Urban Geology in Washington State,” presented by David B. Williams. This lecture is hosted by the Mid-Columbia Libraries and is happening on Thursday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m. at the Mid-Columbia Library on Union in Kennewick. Geologist David B. Williams will use local buildings and structures — and the stone they were built with — to spark a discussion on how geology connects to our communities.
These events are only the beginning of an exciting year. Please keep reading the Entertainer each month to stay on top of all of the arts offerings at CBC as well as artistic happenings throughout the Tri-City area. We really do live in an artistically rich community and enjoy having you with us at Columbia Basin College.
Bill McKay is Dean of Arts and Humanities at Columbia Basin College.
