Color & Light Painting Demonstration

What attracts you to a beautiful painting? Often it’s color, but that’s only part of the story. What draws us in is the interaction of light with the subject matter. Join us in the intimacy of the Drawing Room in historic Marion where painter Bobbi Heath will be on the premises for a live painting demonstration.  Explore the collections, see new artisan work, and engage directly with the artist.  You’ll learn how the color of an object is affected by light and be surrounded by original artwork created by New England artisans that is available for sale, order or commission.

Steve Katz
Steve studied guitar with the legendary Dave Van Ronk and Reverend Gary Davis. It was at this time that he met and befriended guitarist Stefan Grossman. Steve and Stefan would sometimes act as road managers for Reverend Davis and, in doing so, met many of the great blues men of an earlier era, like Son House, Skip James, and Mississippi John Hurt. Steve later joined the Even Dozen Jug Band where Steve played the washboard and was joined by Maria Muldaur, John Sebastian, and David Grisman. Later Steve joined a foray of young white middle-class musicians called the Blues Project which included keyboardist Al Kooper. After the demise of the Blues Project, Steve, Al Kooper, Bobby Colomby and Jim Fielder decided to work up a set of Al's new songs. Influenced by the Electric Flag and by an album by the Buckinghams, they formed Blood, Sweat, and Tears and recorded their first album "Child Is Father to the Man". Steve sang one original song ("Megan's Gypsy Eyes") and a song written by his friend, the late Tim Buckley. Al Kooper left the band after six months and was replaced by David Clayton-Thomas as lead singer of the group. Steve wrote many songs during his tenure with BS&T, including his well-loved "Sometimes In Winter". In 1972 Steve met Lou Reed and they quickly became friends. After the commercial failure of Lou's album "Berlin", Steve was asked to produce his next record. Steve produced "Rock & Roll Animal and " Sally Can't Dance for Lou. Steve wanted to return to playing music, and join American Flyer a nonperforming band. Steve was joined by prolific writer Eric Kaz, Craig Fuller from Pure Prairie League, and Doug Yule from Velvet Underground. The first of two albums was produced by George Martin of Beatle fame. please visit stevekatzmusic.wordpress.com for more background information on Steve.
