Creative expression at Artbeat 2006

Sierra College Students and faculty are putting on a show Wednesday called “Artbeat 2006,” which includes a wide spectrum of creativity, from drama to sculpture.

This, the third year of the show, features Teresa Wirik-Cull’s Jazz/Funk dance students, John Deaderick’s drama students, Judy Crowe’s poetry students, Robin Clarke and David McKay’s photography students, Dick Hotchkiss’ ceramics students, John Micheal Keating’s drawing and painting students and Ken Hardin’s choir students – to name a few. Shannon Haddy, Marissa Hernandez and Will Parkhurst will perform student choreography.

It was Sierra College Modern and Jazz Dance instructor Lovie Bucknell who started “Artbeat” as a way for her students to perform their dances in more than just the Starz show, an annual dance extravaganza held prior to this show.

Tickets are $6 at the door (which is at 314 W. Main St., Grass Valley – The Center for the Arts). The schedule is: 6-6:50 p.m. for audience voting for Best in Show on still art, with refreshments and T-shirts sold by the Sierra College Dance Club; 7 p.m. starts Act One of performance art (dance, drama, poetry, music); and 8 p.m. Act Two of performance art, including an Awards Ceremony. Call Lovie Bucknell at 277-2046 or e-mail for more information.
