Random Works by Eric Nels Petersen: Monkey Lisa

Monkey Lisa Eric Petersen

New ArtHaus Co-director, Eric Petersen, will exhibit a selection of his own work in drawing, painting, and ceramics with the particular intention of sharing his aesthetic sensibility with the Decorah community. Play, colorful two-dimensional works will contrast with his earthy, and at times, enigmatic ceramic sculptures and pottery. Exhibition opens with a First Friday reception on Friday, September 5 and is on display through Friday, September 26.

New Works by Dave Hart: Depth

DepthHart

Artist Dave Hart grew up in Decorah and graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in art education. Now a high school art teacher, raising his family with his wife Erin in New Brighton, Minnesota, Hart has created a new series of mixed media pieces which integrate abstract spaces with 3-dimensional forms which invite the viewer to physically interact with his work. While you explore Hart’s work, enjoy wine tasting compliments of the Oneota Community Coop. Exhibition runs through Friday, October 31.

Karen Savoca and Pete Heitzman

Savoca

Based in the hills of upstate New York, Karen Savoca and Pete Heitzman are familiar to midwest audiences as favorite collaborators of Greg Brown, Dave Moore, and other Red House Records regulars. Like two skaters gliding on ice, they play across soul, R&B, roots, and world rhythms, beloved by fans for the energy they create between audience and stage. The duo has released eight CDs on their own Alcove Records label and are currently working on their latest, due out this year. We’ve booked this concert at the Elks so there will be plenty of room for dancing!

Water Street Music Series presents: Chet Baker: In a Blue Room

ChetBaker

A vivid evening of words, movement, and music, inspired by jazz trumpet master, Chet Baker. West Coast jazz of the 1950s was defined by this newcomer with the looks of a matinee idol, whose cool, understated trumpet hinted at something deeper, a solitary sound in a blue room. This original collaboration between trumpet player Jon Ailabouni, dancer/choreographer Blake Nellis, and actor/director Kristen Underwood, was created exclusively for ArtHaus and Water Street Music Series.

Seating is limited. Reservations strongly recommended! Visit wsmsdecorah.org or call 563-382-5440.
