Music, art converge in Bryson

Written by 

art mojomaticAsheville blues/rock group Mojomatic will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, at Swain County Center for the Arts Bryson City. Following the concert there will be a meet and greet reception for the musicians and exhibiting artist, Vickie S. Beck, whose baskets and realistic acrylic landscape and still life paintings will be on exhibit and for sale through mid-January. 

 

Beginning from a primarily traditional blues format, Mojomatic has expanded its reach to include originals and original arrangements of rock classics. The originals span a wider range with a strong jazz and Americana influence.  

Beck is a graphic artist, acrylic painter, basket maker and former gallery owner who lives in Haywood County. Many of her paintings are inspired by the ever-changing Blue Ridge Mountain landscape. She paints mostly in her studio from her own photographic references and especially enjoys painting landscapes, flowers and still life.

Free.

    That was the question constantly asked to me when friends and curious folks alike found out I was interviewing Kevin Costner. Yes, that Kevin Costner. You see the Academy Award-winning actor/director fronts a country/blues band called Modern West. They’ll be performing at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin on April 24.
