You are invited to May's Creative Mixer!
Join the Salida Council for the Arts on Thursday, May 11 in the Paquette Gallery of the SteamPlant Event Center for a fine and festive social hour, from 5: 30 to 7. Munchies are served, the cash bar is open, live keyboard music will be playing and you’ll hear news about SO many creative projects being launched. Join us, bring your friends, meet some new ones, and, if you have news about your own artistic endeavor, you’re invited to step up on the “Soapbox” and share the excitement.
Imagine! The guest artist in the Paquette this month is Salida Circus, Colorado’s most creative circus! Jennifer Dempsey, founder/performer/mama/fundraiser supreme will be on hand at Creative Mixer to tell us about a special celebration for Memorial Day Weekend.
Salida Circus celebrates it’s 10-Year Anniversary! Hundreds of kids - adults too - have participated in our circus’s festive program over the years: aerial acts, stiltwalkers, tumbling, juggles, clowning, doggy performers with more and more exciting acts added regularly.
Performing all over the state, and internationally in Ireland and Jordan, they stage workshops and special performances, indoors and out. Salida Circus always presents good fellowship with colorful entertainment.
Creative Mixer is honored to feature keyboarder Joan Lubeck, in her first Mixer appearance. Joan ( who also has a connection to Salida Circus, ask her! ) is new to Salida and is booking background music in small venues. ( Does your gallery or store still need some music for Art Walk? ) She’s a vocalist, accompanying herself on piano and ukulele. Her extensive background is as a church accompanist, choir director, and soloist.
Joan is now exploring new opportunities, such as joining a small ensemble or pairing up with a guitarist/vocalist, so ask her about that too!
