Momboosa has confirmed country artist Alex Woodard and The Chris Gardner Band will play the festival this summer. Woodard, who hails from Southern California, brings his unique brand of surfer- country musical styling to the Momboosa stage this July. Gerorge Varga, music edi- tor of the San Diego Union Tribune, said, "Woodard's well-crafted songs are cut from the same cloth as Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Jim Croce, Rodney Crowelt and John Mellencamp, whose music eloquently captures earthy truths about living, loving and growing older without losing the dreams of youth." Woodard previously toured and opened for Nickel Creek, Shawn Mullins, Robert Earl Keen, Julianne Hough, Switchfoot and Sister Hazel. The five-member Chris Gardner Band has opened for such country stars as Chris Young, Luke Bryan, Love and Theft, and Sarah Buxton. Their inspiration comes from the likes of Third Day, Zac Brown Band and Keith Urban.

Quincy's Main Street Artists mark six-month anniversary Rocki Eriksen Special to Feather Publishing April marks the six-month anniversary of Main Street Ar.tists. Like the little train that could, the group has em- barked on an uphill journey and has been chugging along ever since. November is not the best time to start any new ven- ture, but especially here in this tiny mountain town of Quincy. The weather is cold and unpredictable, and most everyone is preparing for the long winter ahead. With the economy as it is, this meant cinching up our belts, hunkering down and paying close attention to doing what was necessary on a day-to-day basis. Attending a reception for a local artist doesn't seem like the sort of thing that would rank high on anyone's list, but as it turned out, it's just what was needed. All the receptions at the gallery on Main Street have been very successful, and those who attended have been treated to a worthwhile experience. Interest has been raised, and now it is an event to look forward to. This little band of 30 local artists has met and exceeded expectations. The quality of the art and variety of different mediums rank right up there with the well-known galleries. There is so much more to come. The most recent Thurs- day reception at Main Street Gallery showcased Lori Cross Reynolds' artwork and the gallery was filled. Art enthu- siasts viewed an extensive collection that spanned four decades and two continents. Whoever or whatever the subject a small boat rest- ing at the edge of Buck's Lake, a lone moose shoulder deep in a golden meadow or a young child scampering along the California seashore Cross-Reynolds' paintings are alluring. She captures and shares the feeling experi- enced in each delightful scene. She has captured many scenes from her travels across the United States and Europe on canvas. One can easily be transported to a romantic villa with an arch-framed view of a vineyard in Italy; or taken for a short stroll down a quiet street in Quincy to get up close and personal with a red lily in all its glory; or to rest under a sprawling shade tree on a s.un dappled lawn in Saugatuck, Mich. The show ends Thursday; however, you can still view and purchase her pieces at hr website, loricross- reynolds:c0m. . Along with an individual artist's collection of work, visitors to the gallery often enjoy entertainment pro- vided by local musicians and tasty treats by local mer- chants and gallery members during a reception. It's a nice excuse to get out of the house, have a glass of wine and see the art this gifted group has to offer. Main Street Artists is very grateful for the support and contributions towards its continuing success. Thanks to everyone for coming out on those chilly or rainy evenings when it would have just been easier to stay in by the fire. The gallery is looking forward to an even better spring and a great summer. It's not too late to join Main Street Artists as an artist or a patron member. If you are interested, contact Lara Eichenberger at eichen88 Gallery hours are currently 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., Thursday - Sunday; the possibility of expansion is dependent on public interest.
