Livermore-Amador Symphony  - Classical Contrasts
Livermore-Amador Symphony is thrilled to welcome back to Livermore the exceptional pianist, Gwendolyn Mok, who has graced many of the world’s leading concert halls. Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto is perhaps his most intimate and poetic, creating a unique dialogue between soloist and orchestra. The inventive, wacky and wonderful music of Stravinsky’s Suite No. 2 opens this evening of contrasting musical styles. Schumann’s romantic Symphony No. 4 brings our season to a dramatic finish with a beautiful journey from darkness to light.

Dlux Puppets - Peter Pan
A beloved classic comes to life with remarkable puppetry and clever digital scenery when the magical Peter Pan and Tinkerbell whisk Wendy off to Neverland in a fun musical adaptation for the whole family.

Presented by the nationally-recognized DLUX Puppet Company, Peter Pan is filled with intricately engineered life size puppets, hand-built and voiced by founder Derek Lux. Derek is a multi-talented performer who originally began building the puppets while he was still starring in “Beach Blanket Babylon” in San Francisco. His wife, second grade teacher Lauren Lux, is DLUX’ education director and has developed a performance activity kit for students who attend the show. Their production of “Alice in Wonderland” sold out the Bankhead Theater in February and will be repeated on December 30, 2018.

Star Trek: Wrath of Khan (1982)
Charismatic tyrant Khan Noonien Singh (Ricardo Montalban) seeks revenge against Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner) of the starship Enterprise, who had exiled him more than a dozen years earlier. Using a stolen life-generating Genesis device as a weapon, he seeks to establish his own galactic empire only to be challenged by Kirk and the Enterprise’s crew in a death-defying battle. Also starring Leonard Nimoy (Spock) and DeForest Kelley (McCoy), “Wrath of Khan” was the second in the Star Trek film series, which extended the popular 1960s television show. Subsequent films featured an evolving cast and now number more than a dozen overall.

Oneida Stowe Art Exhibit
The Bothwell Arts Center will feature the works of acclaimed local artists, including a special exhibit of works by Oneida Stowe (1944-2005), during the Annual East Bay Open Studios (EBOS) on June 22-23, 2019. A Bay Area tradition for more than 40 years, EBOS is a unique opportunity for artists, art collectors and art lovers to connect with each other in person.

Oneida Stowe was an accomplished Livermore artist and educator who taught art classes at Las Positas College for 15 years. She had many exhibitions in the Tri-Valley and throughout the US and accrued a long list of awards including Ford Foundation Scholarships, the Andrews Portrait Award from Asilomar, and first place from the Society of Western Artists. Her work is in numerous private and corporate collections and she is listed in California Art Review and American Artists. The Stowe exhibit at the Bothwell will include original and signed prints of Stowe’s watercolors, oils, acrylics and drawings. All pieces will be available for purchase.

EBOS provides visitors with a free, self-guided tour of working artists’ studios. Five artists will be hosted at the Bothwell this year including Linda Ryan, Judy Rice, Barbara Stanton, Amy Greenberg and James Bonacci. Light refreshments and live jazz music by Beat 5 will be offered during this free event. For more information about EBOS: https://eastbayopenstudios.com/

Lee Dewyze
Even before winning American Idol in 2010 at the age of 23, acoustic singer/songwriter Lee DeWyze had been building a solid career with his powerful vocals and extensive musical talents playing guitar, mandolin, banjo and piano. His expressive roots-driven folk-rock style has found a wide circle of fans who appreciate his straight-from-the-heart songs and passionate, personal delivery. More than 30 of his songs have been featured in popular television shows, films and advertisements, including “Blackbird” on The Walking Dead and “Sink or Swim” in the Julia Roberts film Ben is Back. Praised as “cinematic” and “seductive,” DeWyze’s sixth studio album, “Paranoia” was released in 2018

Starsday Open Mike Event

This summer, Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center will launch StarsDay a new open-mike-format music and art event designed to bring together and share the wealth of artistic talent in the community. StarsDay will take place in the outdoor courtyard of the Bankhead Theater on the last Wednesday of each month starting June 26, 2019 from 6:00 to 9:00pm. Any local musician, artist or group can sign up for a slot to perform during the open showcase session which begins at 7:00pm. They can also join in a jam session towards the end of the evening. Admission to the family-friendly StarsDay is free and beverages and snacks will be available for sale from concessions. Entry to the courtyard is through the gate to the right of the Bankhead Theater box office at 2400 First Street in downtown Livermore.

The first StarsDay event on June 26th will begin with a showcase of talent from the community including LPC Jazz Ensemble, Poetry Out Loud California State Winner Natalia Macias, poet Denise Bridges, and guitarist Gabriel Eaton. Randy Fortes, a local singer/songwriter, actor and speaker will serve as emcee for the evening. The “open mike” session will begin at 7:00pm and the final hour will start with a short set by the Bankhead House Band “Force of Magic,” followed by a jam session. “Force of Magic” consists of five musicians, all of whom work at the Bankhead. Andrew Mathers on trumpet, Alisa Branford on ukulele, Ruben Birando on guitar, and Robert Huntington on tuba, are joined by Arthur Barinque, who will run the turntables. StarsDay is the brainchild of Barinque, who is Food and Beverage/Event Manager for Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, as well as a multi-talented visual artist and performer with deep roots in the community.

As Scott Kenison, executive director of Livemore Valley Performing Arts Center, said, “We always look for opportunities to open our doors so people can enjoy and share art in all its forms with others. We support the efforts of our resident performing arts companies and also feature local groups such as LunaFish, who will bring the sound of the 60s and 70s to the Bankhead in August, and Crawdad Republic, who will return for New Year’s Eve. Exhibits in our Gallery often highlight local artists. Now with StarsDay we can provide a platform for others in the community to showcase their musical and artistic talents.”

At the first StarsDay, Macias will be selling her recently published book of poetry “Amante,” and local visual artist Lourdes Zamora will display and sell artwork. A “sketch corner” with art supplies will be available for those who would like to take part in making art while enjoying the evening’s entertainment. Musicians interested in participating in the open showcase should arrive to sign up at 6:00pm and will be assigned a slot based on space available. Two microphones will be available for use but musicians are responsible for bringing their own instruments and any other equipment needed.

"Go Figure" Art Reception at Art & Wine Intertwined

"Go Figure" Art Reception at Art & Wine Intertwined

The “Go Figure” exhibit celebrates the tremendous diversity of spirit, style, and emotion expressed in the human figure through the eyes of 26 artists. A concurrent exhibit in the Founders Room, adjacent to the Bankhead lobby, are six original works by E. Trent Thompson from his “Pictures for People” project. His large scale works were designed to highlight the needs of others in the community and the sale of the project’s pieces raised funds to support local organizations that help people in need. This will be the last week to enjoy “Go Figure” before it closes July 7 to make way for a new exhibit. Many pieces are available for sale and purchase arrangements can be made during the event.

The closing art reception takes place during “Art & Wine Intertwined” for a casual summer wine tasting. Local offerings from McGrail Vineyards, Boa Ventura Vineyards, White Crane Winery, and Mia Nipote will be featured. The lively jazz music of Wombo Combo with Andrew Mathers will enliven the afternoon event. Hosted by Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, “Art & Wine Intertwined” is free and open to the public. Tastings are $2 each or three for $5 and light appetizers will be served. The event runs from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.

One of the artists exhibiting in “Go Figure,” Judith Kunzlé has focused for many years on the representation of movement and body language. She lived for 30 years in the South Pacific where she found many inspirations for her work. Kunzle has said, “My work is a dialogue with the subject. I draw and paint nature in plein air, work with live models or with dancers in action. [Whether] it’s a person or an oak tree, their presence, form and movement are my inspiration.”

The six original works by E. Trent Thompson from “Pictures for People” display the goal of his project to call attention to the needs of our community through portraits of individuals we walk by every day. Each painting was designated for a specific cause and was offered at auction this March during an event at Range Life restaurant to raise money for a community organization supporting that cause. The paintings are on loan for this exhibit, although some originals and prints will be for sale at the reception.

Gallery hours are Monday through Wednesday, as well as Sundays from 12 noon to 5:00 pm. and by appointment.

3rd Sunday of each month

Except May & December

 

 

Duarte Garage and Lincoln Highway Museum Open
The Duarte Garage was built in 1915 by F.H. Duarte on the original Lincoln Highway, the first transcontinental U.S. Highway. When the Carquinez Bridge opened in 1927, the highway was re-routed. This section fronting the north doors was eventually renamed Portola Avenue. Junction Avenue originally ran past the south doors.

The garage sold Associated gasoline and oil products and also performed repairs. In 1923 the south half of the garage was added and became an automobile dealership, selling Durant Star and Flint models. Robert Livermore Jr. was one of the salesmen in the early 1920’s.

In the early 1940’s the garage was converted into a machine shop for rebuilding winery and farm equipment. During the 1970’s the City of Livermore purchased the Duarte Garage and surrounding land for use as a park (now adjacent east of the Garage and caretaker's home). The Livermore Heritage Guild signed a lease in 1976 to restore and maintain the garage for use as a museum.

The Annual Guild Dinner and Annual Auction are both held in the garage. The Auction in particular is a favorite for people from all around.
