'Face to Face': From Portraits to Selfies, the Art and Craft of Making Faces
Faces are distinct as fingerprints, unique as snowflakes.
They are how people recognize us from one another.
Faces communicate and inform without words.
At Paradise City Marlborough this fall, you'll see faces in paintings,
sculptures and photographs, on clocks and chairs, embedded in jewelry
and vases. These faces engage, confront, entertain and provoke,
all filtered through each artist's style and perspective.
Paradise City's favorite bass player, Jeff Dostal, is accompanied
by blazing keyboards and inspired percussion. He brings a juicy repertoire of
jazz standards and tunes from the Great American Songbook.
Green Street Trio • Saturday, November 22
Pianist, composer and dance accompanist Paul Arslanian, the founder of the Jazz Tap Ensemble,
leads this remarkable band, back by popular request. Arslanian is joined by noted bassist George Kaye and percussionist Jon Fisher.
Watch a video
about the Green Street Trio's 'dedication to the tradition of jazz apprenticeship'. Also features music from
the weekly Northampton Jazz Workshop and Jam Session, founded by Paul Arslanian.
The O-Tones • Sunday, November 23 The O-Tones return to Marlborough as a three-piece band with their infectious renditions of Swing and Motown. Soulful lead singer
Mary Witt is accompanied by bass, guitar, percussion and three-part harmony.
Walking the show at Paradise City, you may come across an artist braiding leather for the strap of a handbag,
sketching out a concept for a commission, carving wood or sewing trim on a jacket.
This is one of the little pleasures of Paradise City. Not only do you meet the artists and talk to them about their work, but you also
may get a glimpse of the technique and thought process behind each piece of art or craft.
At Paradise City Marlborough this fall, catch Tim Scull's bravura demonstration of
expertise on the pottery wheel at Booth 357.
Master ceramist and raconteur Scull,
star of the WGBY/PBS program 'The Fire Within', throws
really big pots and shares the secrets of his studio. Scull is renowned for his enormous pots and
platters, distinguished by the marks of wood vapor, raku, saggar and pit firing.
Verne Jidong Yan is a second-generation master of
the ancient Chinese art of silk embroidery.
Using hairlike silk threads, Yan meticulously practices the art
of 'double-side embroidery', a very complex and timeconsuming
craft much revered in his native China. His
thread paintings are even more impressive once
you've seen him work! Visit Booth 121.
Jeffrey Hayes is a realist painter, working in oils, who sometimes works in miniature -
requiring the use of a magnifying glass to see the brushwork! One of his passions is world cuisine, and many of his
paintings describe food and serving implements in breathtaking detail. Booth 209.
