Call for Artists


Main Street Hagerstown, through The City of Hagerstown, seeks proposals to design light pole banners to be placed by city staff throughout the downtown on existing light pole banner brackets. Several year-round designs are sought as well as coordinated "winter holiday" styled designs. The artwork must create a sense of place, and speak to one's approach and then arrival in Hagerstown's downtown. Main Street is seeking bold, almost disputatious, designs.

The Berkeley Arts Council in Martinsburg, West Virginia announces "Fire in Many Forms" on exhibit from June 6 through July 7 at the Berkeley Art Works Gallery, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg.  
 
The exhibit presents six ceramic artists, each working with different firing methods, including Raku, Salt, Soda, Wood, and Smoke firing.   The artists' kilns range from simple containers to more sophisticated gas and wood-fired kilns.   While these atmospheric firings can be unpredictable, the pieces on display demonstrate the typical and fascinating characteristics of each type of firing and the mastery with which these artists work with fire.   In contrast to the fired work, the show also features some unfired work.
 
The artists represented are all working ceramic artists hailing from our region of West Virginia, as well as New York State, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia.   The goals of the exhibit are to describe the artists' diverse work and interests, and introduce the community to a variety of firing techniques.   After visiting this show, you'll leave with new thoughts about the many ways ceramic artists work in clay, and the knowledge to identify and appreciate these types of firings when you see them.
 
Meet the artists at an opening reception on Friday, June 8 from 5-7pm.

T HE NEW YORK BEE GEES STORY
The New York Bee Gees Tribute Show is comprised of some of Long Island New York's most versatile and exceptionally talented players. The band includes present or former members of well known, world renown acts including The Alan Parsons Project, Happy Together Tour, Meatloaf, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, Riot, Herman's Hermits, Enrique Iglesias, The Rippingtons and more.

Based in New York, the show has played to sell out shows at The Paramount Theater and BB King NYC. Performances are regularly at The NYCB Theater at Westbury, Resorts World Casino, Empire Casino, and The Suffolk Theater. B.B. King NYC wrote, "The NY Bee Gees Tribute Show presents the most extravagant Bee Gees show a fan can experience. The band offers all of the classic 70's disco hits from Stayin' Alive to Night Fever while embracing their early works such as To Love Somebody, I've Got To Get A Message To You and Massachusetts. The New York Bee Gees delivers songs from every decade of the Bee Gees catalogue with a stunning production, powerful vocals and the professional stage presence to fill any club or casino."
