Tune in for entertaining events on the island coming up.
Community Events, April 2014
Vaudeville — in the form of the two dynamic performers who call themselves Duo Finelli — will come to the Blue Heron at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
Island drummer Todd Zimberg, guitarist Michael Gotz and bass player Keith Lowe will reunite under the name of Long Lost for an evening of jazz, rock and blues at 8:30 p.m. Saturday at the Bike.
As a storyteller, creative writer and teacher Merna Hecht knows firsthand the power of the written word. Among her many projects is a poetry program she established five years ago for the students at Foster High School in Tukwila, which is recognized as the most language diverse high school in the country. A poetry anthology created by students this year is called “The Colors of My Past: Immigrant and Refugee Voices of Struggle, Migration and Hope.” Next week, Hecht will showcase the project at the Vashon Bookshop, reading student poems and inviting audience members to experience several of the writing prompts she used for the project.
For its annual All-Island (and Beyond) Invitational Art Show, VALISE Gallery invites every island artist working in any media to submit one original piece to be displayed in the show. The exhibit opens Friday, May 2, and runs through the month.
