Jazz Concert Sunday

July 27, 5-7 pm
Brad Terry, Clarinet
Peter Herman, Guitar
Suggested donation $20
Seating is limited so it's best to arrive a little early.
Join Us for Jazz
Come and experience this wonderful collaboration between Jazz master Brad Terry and young guitarist Peter Herman as they play jazz classics.
Brad Terry
Brad says: ​“I have been playing this wonderful American music called ‘Jazz’ ever since my neighbor Benny Goodman convinced my mother to buy me a clarinet when I was fourteen.
​I ​have​ been lucky to have known and be challenged by, played and recorded with some of the world’s greatest Jazz players and now, at seventy​- seven I’m being challenged again by a brilliant twenty-five year old guitar player, Peter Herman. 
Peter Herman

We play tunes I’ve known for 50-60 years that he’s hearing for the first time and he brings with him a flood of new and refreshing harmonic and melodic ideas. He has mastered a lot of amazing technique and throws musical curve balls at me, definitely keeping me on my toes. We play a variety of standard jazz tunes and spontaneously create musical conversations that take us to surprising and often unlikely places.”
Brad Terry, Peter Herman
​Brad Terry shares his love of music with young musicians all over the world​.

Gabriel Greenlaw: Guest Artist

Motor Neuron Expansion
Gabriel Greenlaw's glass sculpture will be featured in the gallery through August 9, 2014.  Bath's Third Friday Art Walk, July 18, will also be a reception for artists.

Gabriel Greenlaw was homeschooled prior to attending college, where he received a BFA in Glass and Glass Sculpture from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2014. He has remained constantly involved in the art community as a teaching assistant for glassblowing classes at RIT and through courses at Penland School of Crafts, Pilchuck Glass School, and Waterfall Center for the Arts. He has also studied with Clair Belfrage, Jason Chakravarty, Michael Rogers, Robin Cass, David Schunkel, and Marta Bernbaum. His work has been included in several exhibitions including ART2014 at the Harlow Gallery, in Hallowell, ME, the MetaProject 02 Exhibition and School of American Crafts Honors Exhibition at the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, NY. He was a 2014 NICHE Awards Finalist in the blown glass category, 2014 Becky Winship Flameworking Award recipient from the Glass Art Society, Corning Incorporated Award Nominee in 2013 and involved in an international collaboration between RIT’s School of American Crafts and the China Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, which concluded in an exhibition at the Rochester Contemporary Art Center.

The Artist's Soul

Gabriel's current work is inspired by scientific observations and elements such as neurological elements, and expanding them to where they become an immersive experience for the viewer. The use of glass within his work exploits the innate fragility that is associated with the material, creating an environment of tension and intensity that introduces a visceral sense of life into the material, transcending the visual impact of the composition. Combined with complex and organic forms, his work embodies his internal obsession with drama and precision. His pieces are the result of the act of making; impulsively acting, immersing himself in the process and becoming obsessed with details that others rarely consider.
