Our busiest "Art if it All" ever featured the talents of the DBC Jazz Band, featuring Mike Calhoun at lead guitar. Mike is a Grammy Award winner that founded the "Dazz Band" and is now playing with DBC. The overflow crowd ended up watching and listening to the band from the sidewalk and parking lot, after filling the patio seating area. This Jazz group will be performing at our October Art of it All event, scheduled on the 10th 2009.
The Lighthouse Resort's Ritskis Bar & Grill, in Marblehead, did a fantastic job providing an array of mouth watering munchies for the large crowd, it certainly went over in a big way and many people mentioned that they were heading to Ritskis after the event for their evening meal. Mutachs, our local grocery store, also should be mentioned for their suggestion on the wine selection for the event -believe me, there wasn't much of any spirits or food left after the event!
The Visual Arts was also well represented as many of the Gallery Artists were on hand to field questions and explain how they render the wonderful works of art that they have within the gallery. Jodie is presently working on a Christmas Book for 2010, her studio is within the Gallery area, so customers can view the progress of this book. It will be distributed by Borders, Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million next year to co-incide with the 3/D Nativity Set highlighted below.
The next Art of it All event is scheduled on the third Saturday of August, the 15th. From 1:00pm - 9:00pm. So mark your calendar. Experience the Performing, Visual and Culinary arts at their best at the McCallum Gallery, in beautiful downdown Marblehead, OH - see you there!
