Gaye's Introductory Stained Glass class is a pre-requisite to this Copper Foil class. Now that you've had a go with leaded stained glass, learn the copper foil method. Each student will complete a project, such as a sun catcher or 8 x 10 panel. Pattern books will be available in the shop prior to the first class and Gaye is available to consult with you on your project. As it is soldering-intensive, each student will need to have his/her own soldering iron for use during class. Class price includes tools and materials you will need, including your own copper foiler and foil. Once registered, each student will choose his/her glass prior to class via email instructions. Because of the time needed to insure delivery of workshop materials, registrations will close on Monday, March 16th.

Wow! We've had such great response to our new series that we've started a Daytime Mixed Media Club. We'll be doing the same fun techniques as the evening group. The daytime group will meet on the 1st Wednesday of each month. In this technique-driven club, we'll get together on the first Wednesday afternoon of each month to explore tools, techniques, products, new trends, and old friends. The goal is to have fun and learn from each other. Each Club Day will be part learning and part Open Studio. We'll catch up, have Show and Tell, learn something new, then hone the skills using the Ephemera Paducah Stash and Studio tools. We're starting fresh this month using Joanne Sharpe's book The Art of Whimsical Lettering as our guide. We'll spend January-April working on our personal fonts and learning about lettering. We'll have copies for purchase in the shop! During Mixed Media Club, all Ephemera Paducah store merchandise (excluding commissions) is 25% for participants! Time to spring for some cool ephemera or an array of Golden Paints? Because this has become such a popular class, please register on-line to secure your spot in class.

Garrison Keillor was born in 1942 in Anoka, Minnesota, and began his radio career as a freshman at the University of Minnesota, from which he graduated in 1966. He went to work for Minnesota Public Radio in 1969, and on July 6, 1974, he hosted the first broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion in St. Paul. The show ended in 1987, resumed in 1989 in New York as The American Radio Company, returned to Minnesota, and in 1993 resumed the name A Prairie Home Companion. Over 17 million listeners on more than 900 public radio stations now hear the show each week.

Keillor’s most recent role included playing himself in the movie adaptation of his show, A Prairie Home Companion (June 2006). It features Meryl Streep and Lily Tomlin as the singing Johnson sisters, Lindsay Lohan as Streep's daughter, Woody Harrelson and John C. Reilly as singing cowboys Lefty and Dusty, and Tommy Lee Jones as the Axeman, who is dispatched by the radio station's new corporate owners in Texas to shut down the show.

He is also the author of many books, including Lake Wobegon Days (1985); The Book of Guys (1993); The Old Man Who Loved Cheese (1996); Wobegon Boy (1997); Me: By Jimmy "Big Boy" Valente As Told to Garrison Keillor (1999); Love Me (2003); Homegrown Democrat (2004); Pontoon (2007); Liberty: A Lake Wobegon Novel (2008); and Life Among the Lutherans (2009). In 2013, Keillor released his first book of poetry called O, What a Luxury: Versus Lyrical, Vulgar, Pathetic & Profound. This volume is written with his characteristic combination of humor and insight on love, modernity, nostalgia, politics, religion, and other facets of daily life.

Keillor has received numerous awards, including a Grammy Award for his recording of Lake Wobegon Days. He has also received two Cable ACE Awards and a George Foster Peabody Award. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and recently was presented with a National Humanities Medal by the National Endowment for the Humanities. In 1994, he was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame at Chicago's Museum of Broadcast Communications.

With Philip Brunelle, he has performed with many orchestras, including the Chicago, Milwaukee, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Dallas, and National symphonies. He has appeared at Wolf Trap, Carnegie Hall, and other major concert halls as a member of The Hopeful Gospel Quartet, and he has performed on his own in one-man shows across the country and on tour broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion.

Music @ MAC presents JD McPherson
Dates: Apr 10, 2015
Times: 8 PM
Venue: Maiden Alley Cinema & Gallery
website

As a visual artist, Broken Arrow, Okla., native JD McPherson is well versed in the process of working within clearly defined formal parameters, and he employs a similarly rigorous discipline with his music. On Signs & Signifiers (Rounder, April 17), McPherson’s seductively kickass debut album, produced by JD’s musical partner, Jimmy Sutton, this renaissance man/hepcat seamlessly meshes the old and the new, the primal and the sophisticated, on a work that will satisfy traditional American rock ’n’ roll and R&B purists while also exhibiting McPherson’s rarefied gift for mixing and matching disparate stylistic shapes and textures.

Music @ MAC is a series of live music of many genres featured in a truly unique atmosphere. Maiden Alley Cinema is so proud to offer a venue to local and international musicians alike.
