Published

Hot Mess: A Residency in Motherhood

The exhibition Hot Mess: A Residency in Motherhood by local Artist Erin Boake will be on display at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery (MAG) July 20thto September 29th, 2019.  In her exhibit Hot Mess, Boake explores and embraces the chaotic, cluttered and cyclical nature of motherhood.

Boake’s self directed Residency in Motherhood, is an ongoing and evolving experiment in seeing and embracing the beautiful side of the clutter, and the raw, sticky, messy side of parenting.  This project is for the invaluable, behind the scenes, household heroes we call Mom.

“It has been thrilling to watch Erin Boake mature as an artist,” says Lorna Johnson, Executive Director. “She has mastered her drawing and painting skills and she continues to challenge herself with creative new projects. Hot Mess shows that even the most mundane of household tasks can be fuel for a creative mind and a source of beauty. We are very pleased to present Erin’s work at the MAG.”

Erin Boake was born and raised in Red Deer, where she completed her first two years of visual arts at Red Deer College, before transferring to Alberta College of Art & Design. She graduated with a degree in Painting in 2003. Erin spent many years traveling and living in various communities around Canada and abroad. Between 2008 and 2013, Erin had the opportunity to live and work in Iqaluit, Nunavut, teaching drawing and design at the Nunavut Arctic College.  Erin has been teaching art for 17 years, and in the last year, has taken over the role of owner and operator of Artribute Art School, alongside her own studio practice.  Erin currently lives in Red Deer with her husband and two small girls, and spends her time doing laundry when she’s not painting it.

BIG HANK’S TRIBUTE TO THE BLUE’S SONGS OF CHRISTMAS

Published

“…This is a great show. I mixed it last year and it was awesome!…” Carl Stretton

If you’re a music fan in the city, you probably know Carl Stretton.  He’s been mixing bands, playing bass, hosting jams, and supporting music for decades.  So when he says a show is awesome, I generally pay attention.  Here’s some more from Carl:

“Blues fans old and young (all ages) are welcome. Some great players on this tour. Big Hank with a great lineup. Some Canadian greats. Jack Lavin from Powder Blues Band on bass, Dennis Meneely of Streetheart and many bands, Saxophonist Dave Babcock from Edmonton… The ensemble is pretty stellar and a great blues dance party is guaranteed. Family friendly. Fun Times!”

Here’s a video that shows you all you need to know.

BIG HANK’S TRIBUTE TO THE BLUE’S SONGS OF CHRISTMAS

Big Hank Lionhart and the R&B Kingpins are going to fill your ears and spirits with the glorious gift of Christmas Blues!  Featuring a brand new line-up, fresh songs and a whole lot of good cheer this will be the ‘don’t miss’ show of the Holiday Season.

This show is a collection of traditional Blues Christmas tunes from the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s 50’s, and 60’s, by the likes of Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, BB King, Eric Clapton, Charles Brown, Etta James and more.

It’s not the standard collection of carols; rather it’s a tribute that gives you a look into the souls of the fabulous music legends sharing their Christmas Blues. A refreshing take on a holiday concert, it has played to sold-out houses and received rave reviews across British Columbia for the past 4 years.
