Do you like music? Do you like bagels? Do you have a Joslyn membership? If you answered yes to any of the following questions, you probably already know about the upcoming Bagels and Bach performance at the Joslyn. It would just be redundant to tell you wife and husband Caroline Park and Roger Nye will be playing the bassoon and oboe, respectively. I won’t waste your time by letting you know friends playing piano and violin will join them at the Nov. 3 performance.
Many people look at a piece of art and ask, what does it mean? Most people will say that you are welcome to come with your own meaning. I guess a more important question would be what was it supposed to mean? Without the artist present, one may never know. Fortunately, the Fluxion Gallery, located at 1209 Harney St. Suite 100, gives us the chance to ask Gilbert Flores just that. On Oct. 19 he will be at a reception at the gallery to open Glimmer from 7 to 11 p.m. Glimmer is a show of the New York-based artists’ paintings and drawings. The show will be at the Fluxion through Nov. 16.
What do you get that someone who has everything? How about something not bought at a mall? The Fontenelle Forest Holiday Market will give you that chance. Held at the Buffett Forest Learning Center at 1111 No. Bellevue Blvd., the Market will feature the work of over 30 regional and local artists, more artists than in previous years. An extra day has been added to the market this year. Shoppers can expect to find such items as jewelry, women’s apparel, watercolors, toys, woodcarvings, metal work and pottery. The Market will be open from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $2 unless you have one of those really cool Fontenelle Nature Association memberships.
