Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2010 11B ARTS an.d ENTERTAINMENT Plumas Arts hosts Art Walk in Quincy on Friday, Feb. 5 Plumas Arts organizes local galleries and downtown Quin- cy businesses together for Art Walks several times a year. On these wonderful nights a downtown nightlife revolves around gallery openings and artists. Temperatures Friday, Feb. 5, may be chilly, but smiles will be warm as friends and neighbors gather around the Plumas Arts Gallery, Eagles Nest and Main Street Artists Gallery. The Plumas Arts Gallery features works by Lucinda Wood, an artist and illustra- tor who moved to Quincy nearly two years ago from Moab, Utah. Although she loved the red rock cliffs and canyons of southeastern Utah, she was born in Pennsylvania, and feels at home in green. She loves the lofty, deep green forests of Quincy's moun- tains, and is delighted to be living among such splendid, tall trees. Wood has a bachelor's de- gree in iUustration and design from Tyler School of Art, part of Temple University, in Philadelphia, Pc. Throughout her career she has designed everything from corporate lo- gos to decorative tins, gift bags and china. Her longest running project was to paint illustrations for Lenox China's Colonial Bou- quet Collector's Plate series, which features the state flower and native flowers from each of the 13 colonies, arranged in colonial period containers. She has also painted a great deal for sheer pleasure, with shows of her work in the Philadelphia area and Moab. "The beauty of nature has a powerful effect on me. It makes me glad to be alive, that I can see and smell, taste and hear such delights. I am amazed by the profusion of beauty that can be seen in na- ture, even in fleeting things, like frost patterns and sunris- es. They speak to me of a great generosity and kindness in our maker. "When I see something beautiful, I feel the need to show someone else, or if that's not possible, to describe it as best as I am able, either with words or photos or, best of all, with paint." Wood's favorite medium is watercolor. She paints out of doors, on location as much as weather permits. An avid gar- dener and naturalist, Wood will show paintings of flowers and landscapes she has loved, as well as some photography. Wood loves to see kids making art, especially her own 13-year-old Brian and 9- year-old Sylvia. She has done watercolor workshops in schools to introduce kids to the fun of painting. Her hus- band, Dave, works for the Forest Service. For the Art Walk, Main Street Artists will have a group show by its member artists. The show will hang for the month of February. The gallery will resume indi- vidual shows in March, start- ing with Michael Kerby. For more information, contact Lara Eichenberger at or Car- la DeBoer at the Eagle's Nest, 283-9374.

Photo submitted ...... ; /:2 .... nphony presents Student and Master II sanville Symphony Orchestra said they have a very exciting concert planned for their Feb- ruary performance. The theme is "The Student and the Master II," a continuation of last year's February concert which introduced the "Stu- dent and the Master." The concert begins promptly at 7 p.m., on Friday, Feb. 12, and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 14, at the Assembly of the God Church, located at 473-465 Rich- mond Road. Tickets for the per- formances are available at Leslie's Jewelry. Call 257-2920. Maestro Ben Wade, conduc- tor/ artistic director, will once again feature the impor- tance of mentorship in music. Wade has carefully selected a wide range of music to please the palate of the symphony's enthusiastic audience. Wade said, "This time we will begin with the monumen- tal spirit of Beethoven and trace the time line to the beautiful romanticism of Sergei Rachmaninoff. The evolution of music w.ill cer- tainly be noticeable to the au- dience as the orchestra moves from classical, to romantic and into the modern era." Music from the early Re- naissance to the classical pe- riod will feature composers Beethoven, Tschaikowski, Hummel, Rubinstein, Rach- maninoff and several others. Also included will be music from Samson and Dalila by Saint-Saens and selected movements from "Symphony No. 4" by Felix Medelssohn. "Maestro Wade's musical insight, passion for beauty in music, demanding expecta- tion of the musicians, and charisma has inspired our community to not only sup- port the Susanville Sympho- ny, but to raise it to new height," said Ray White, pres- ident of the Susanville Sym- phony Society. "I have always asked the musicians to think not just of the notes, but the music as the audience weep, smile, laugh and ponder what we play. We seek that beauty, not just in an entire composition, but in the individual bars and notes themselves." Susanna Blackwood, con- ductor of Susanville Sympho- ny Youth Orchestra, reminds everyone to, "Place the date of March 18 on the calendar for the Annual Youth Symphony Concert." The concert will be held at The Assembly of God Church, starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door. The remainder of the season promises to be exciting. There is a change of mood on April 16 and 18 when the concert in- troduces "The Silk Road." A variety of selections have been chosen to please the audience. The music will take you on a musical adventure that fol- lows the footsteps of the 13th century traveler Marco Polo, along what has been known as The Silk Road. Works to be performed include Povitsian Dances, Persian Slaves and Capriccio Italian. The season closes June 11 tra perform several selections from the movies and televi- sion. Some of the music will include the James Bond theme, "Les Miserables."
