February Creative Mixer



FEATURED ARTISTS: Artwork created by over 20 artists based on poems written by Salida’s Jennifer Dempsey will be on display and for sale. The show is called: "The Big Bad Mood and Other Love Stories"


FEATURED MUSICIAN: Joan Lobeck is the featured musician. Lobeck has over 20 years experience as a Catholic Church music director. She has worked as a piano accompanist, vocalist, and choir director. Since moving to Salida a little over a year ago, Joan has started working with Salida Circus and has added concertina and ukulele to her musical repertoire. Joan is looking for opportunities in small venues to play and sing easy-listening music and recently played at Vino Salida. Her music choices often are songs that people can sing along with.
