The first two weekends in May kick off the Spring Art Studio Tour, when over 30 island artists will open their studio doors in 21 different locations.
Café Luna will exhibit the fine art photography of island photographer Lori Kay. Heron’s Nest will feature Mary Lynn Buss’ 50 mixed-glazed, hand-formed bowls. Clay water birds of Puget Sound made by Tara Brenno’s fourth-grade class at Chautauqua under the guidance of Vashon Artist in Schools artist Liz Lewis will be in the window.
A variety of musical events are on tap this weekend
Occasionally there are watershed events that change the course of one’s life in a single moment. For islander and musician Jason Everett, that instant arrived via a song on the car radio when Everett, age 16 at the time, heard the title track “Quiet” for a band called Ancient Future. Fast forward to next Wednesday when Everett will perform with Ancient Future at the Vashon Theatre.
“The North Pool,” a one-act psychological drama that involves an emotionally and politically charged conversation between a high school vice-principal and a Middle-Eastern born transfer student will be presented as a staged reading at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Blue Heron.
Vashon Island Chorale will present its annual spring concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and at 3 p.m. Sunday at Bethel Church.
Short takes on entertainment happening on Vashon
Teresa Tudury, who first appeared on Vashon with the Church of Great Rain, will bring her special brand of music — called a cross between Bonnie Raitt and Bette Midler — to the Havurah Ee Shalom at 7 p.m. Friday.
