Folk Icon Garnet Rogers sings extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday. As memorable as his songs, his over-the-top humor and lightning-quick wit moves his audience from tears to laughter and back again.
Daniel Champagne will be opening the show for Garnet. This guitar-slapping, body percussion, soulful singing makes this young man one to watch.
Stop by Gallery 2 or call 250-442-2211 for more details.
Vancouver, Washington-based guitarist, singer, and songwriter Kelly Joe Phelps continues to expand the parameters of modern blues through his strong commitment to literary songs and his expressive yet simple guitar stylings. While casual listeners may call Phelps a bluesman, his playing is so fluid, dexterous, and improvised he obviously has the soul of a jazz musician. Phelps was raised in a music-loving household in Sumner, Washington, near Tacoma.
Pick up your tickets at gallery 2 or reserve your tickets by calling the gallery at 250-442-2211.

The world of wine can be intimidating. You know what you like and don’t like but it’s difficult to substantiate the differences and express why. Those who have been discovering wine for some time, the experience has just served to increase their hunger for more knowledge.
Through the Gallery’s annual Wine Tasting fundraiser we’ve heard frequently that patrons want more education but the festive atmosphere of the evening is not the optimal time to absorb knowledge. It’s more a time to share a glass with friends.
Here is an opportunity to learn more about the intricacies of wine. Winology 101 led by instructor Moss Scheurkogel of Intersection Winery is an excellent class for beginners as well as enthusiasts. The evening is casual, informative and above all else fun. Whether you bring your partner for date night, girls night out or just a means to pass the last of the winter nights, by the end of the evening you will have a greater appreciation for the different components and features that make each wine varietal unique.
Tickets are on sale Feb 7th in the Gift Shop. There is a limit so make your decision early to raise your wine awareness.
Plan to attend, mark this date…more details to follow.
