S obzirom na prenatrpanost barova na čikaškom Logan Squareu, vrijeme je da se otvori mjesto za jutro poslije. Soba Kombucha nudi 20 sorti istoimenog fermentiranog napitka pivara sa srednjeg zapada, koji govori o probioticima koji su prihvatljivi za crijeva (i, barem s onima koji su ovdje dostupni, bez alkohola). Tokom dana, mjesto je prepuno veseljaka mrkih očiju koji traže spas-prije mraka, to je najprometniji bar u susjedstvu.


Biblioteka Idyllwild ugošćuje All That Jazz

“Satchmo ” Louis Armstrong je na ovom transparentu uhvaćena od Marcie Gawecki izložene u biblioteci Idyllwild. Fotografija: Biblioteka Idyllwild.

IDYLLWILD, Kalifornija 8217t tamo smješten, na različito vrijeme su ga prosljeđivali različitim članovima njegove šire porodice. Nakon što je njegov otac napustio majku, prijavljeno je da je morala otići živjeti u gradske odaje prostitutki kako bi spojila kraj s krajem. Armstrong je pomogao tako što je napravio rutu papira, vukao ugalj i prodavao hranu spašenu iz kanti za smeće. Kada je pjevač u usponu, kornet i trubač konačno mogao ostaviti svoje teške dane iza sebe, živeći u New Yorku i Chicagu, bio je poznat po tome što mu je, uprkos svemu, New Orleans dao muzički dar &# 8230 “nešto za život. ”

Priče poput ove o čovjeku koji je zapamćen kao jedan od glavnih razvijača jedinstvene američke umjetničke forme inspirisale su Marciju Gawecki da istraži džez muzičare i naslika njihova lica na ogromnim transparentima. Njena djela su posljednja dva ljeta ukrašavala Francusku četvrt u Jazz -u u Pinesu na Umjetničkoj akademiji Idyllwild. Ovog mjeseca portreti oživljavaju biblioteku Idyllwild u uzbudljivoj eksploziji boja, obilježavajući Mjesec uvažavanja jazza.

Slike Armstronga, Elle Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Ette James i Milesa Davisa su tu, zajedno s vrsnim muzičarima koji predaju na akademiji ili su nastupili na različitim mjestima ovdje kao lokalni stanovnici. Ovo posljednje uključuje 2011 American Idol finalista Casey Abrams i njegov mentor Marshall Hawkins, suosnivač akademskog jazz programa#8217s. Naći ćete i Herba Jeffriesa, koji je bio posljednji živi član benda Duke Ellington prije njegove smrti 2014.

Istaknuti su Chuck Alvarez i Yve Evans, a upotpunjavanje prikazuje Barnaby Finch, koja je obišla svijet s Georgeom Bensonom i Lee Ritenour.

“ Ono što me inspiriše je naporan rad drugih umjetnika, "#8221 Gawecki je rekao u ovonedeljnom intervjuu. “Ljudi poput Louisa Armstronga i Elle Fitzgerald morali su prevladati tako velike prepreke poput siromaštva i rasizma, a ipak su postigli velike stvari. Puno istražujem ljude koje slikam. Jednom sam slušao 18-satnu knjigu na traci o životu Louisa Armstronga. ”

Gawecki je rekla da joj muzičari i priče#8217 daju nadu.

Život umjetnika nije lak jer uvijek mora imati dnevni posao. Radim kao blagajnica na sajmu Fairway (tržište) i zahvalna sam na puno radno vrijeme. Nadahnjuje me kada mladi ljudi prođu kroz moju liniju (na pijaci) i kažu da svaki dan prolaze pored moje kuće i gledaju transparente koje stavljam na prozor. I oni su takođe umjetnici. U malom gradu dobivate veliku podršku. ”

Rekla je da joj barmeni iz Francuske četvrti govore da lokalno stanovništvo jako voli boju njenih transparenata.

Portret Ette James Marcie Gawecki jedan je od mnogih koji pomažu ljudima da plešu u Jazz in the Pines. Fotografija: Julie Pendray.

“Zaista ih diže i pleše! ” rekla je.

Gawecki voli slikati “big ”, ali čak i banneri imaju svoja ograničenja.

“Razmišljala sam da isti posao izvedem na velikim drvenim pločama približno iste veličine, ” rekla je. “U mojoj spavaćoj sobi trenutno je poredano nekoliko vrata bez kvaka. Ali kad idete na drva, morate početi razmišljati o prijevozu u kamionu umjesto Honde Civic. ”

Planira ciljati velike restorane koji imaju prostora za pokazivanje svojih kreacija.

Kao rezultat svog obrazovnog izlaganja u biblioteci Idyllwild, Gawecki je naloženo da uradi pet transparenata izvođača kazališta Idyllwild Actors.

“I ’m uzbuđena zbog toga! ” rekla je.

Zanimljiva je njena priča o dolasku u Idyllwild. Rođena je u Bostonu, a odrasla je u Omahi, Nebraska.

“I ’m derište Vazdušnih snaga, ” rekla je. “Obojica su mi bili na medicini, a bilo nas je sedmero. Tako je umjetnost bila moj način da privučem pažnju u velikoj porodici. ”

Ona je posjetila ovu zemlju nakon što je radila u Južnoj Americi.

“Vratila sam se tek nakon dvije godine u Santiagu, Čile, gdje sam bila urednica novina na engleskom jeziku i predavala engleski jezik,##rekla je. “Bio sam švorc i živio sam s mamom u Temeculi i planirao sam se preseliti nazad u Chicago gdje sam već bio. Ali za prelazak u Chicago potrebno je mnogo novca pa sam štedio za to. Mama i ja smo krenule na jednodnevni izlet u Idyllwild jer je to bilo najbliže planinsko selo Temeculi, a meni su nedostajale četiri sezone Čikaga. Zaljubio sam se u to mjesto! U Temeculi je bilo toliko nadogradnje i sjekli su cijele voćnjake kako bi izgradili nove kuće. Sada imam 40 stabala na svom imanju! A ja imam divlje životinje pred vratima pa je to savršeno, mirno, duhovno mjesto za boravak.

Gawecki voli slikati “big ”, ali čak i banneri imaju svoja ograničenja.

“Razmišljala sam da obavim isti posao na velikim drvenim pločama približno iste veličine, ” rekla je. “U mojoj spavaćoj sobi trenutno je poredano nekoliko vrata bez kvaka. Ali kad idete na drva, morate početi razmišljati o prijevozu u kamionu umjesto Honde Civic. ”

Planira ciljati velike restorane koji imaju prostora za pokazivanje svojih kreacija.

Kao rezultat svog obrazovnog izlaganja u biblioteci Idyllwild, Gawecki je naloženo da uradi pet transparenata izvođača kazališta Idyllwild Actors.

“I ’m uzbuđena zbog toga! ” rekla je.

Zanimljiva je njena priča o dolasku u Idyllwild. Rođena je u Bostonu, a odrasla je u Omahi, Nebraska.

“I ’m derište Vazdušnih snaga, ” rekla je. “Obojica su mi bili na medicini, a bilo nas je sedmero. Tako je umjetnost bila moj način da privučem pažnju u velikoj porodici. ”

Ona je posjetila ovu zemlju nakon što je radila u Južnoj Americi.

“Vratila sam se tek nakon dvije godine u Santiagu, Čile, gdje sam bila urednica novina na engleskom jeziku i predavala engleski jezik,##rekla je. “Bio sam švorc i živio sam s mamom u Temeculi i planirao sam se preseliti nazad u Chicago gdje sam već bio. Ali za prelazak u Chicago potrebno je mnogo novca pa sam štedio za to. Mama i ja smo krenule na jednodnevni izlet u Idyllwild jer je to bilo najbliže planinsko selo Temeculi, a meni su nedostajale četiri sezone Čikaga. Zaljubio sam se u to mjesto! U Temeculi je bilo toliko nadogradnje i sjekli su cijele voćnjake kako bi sagradili nove kuće. Sada imam 40 stabala na svom imanju! A ja imam divlje životinje pred vratima pa je to savršeno, mirno, duhovno mjesto za boravak.

Biblioteka Idyllwild ugošćuje All That Jazz

Napisala Julie Pendray

IDYLLWILD, Kalifornija 8217t smješten tamo, na različito vrijeme su ga prosljeđivali različitim članovima njegove šire porodice. Nakon što je njegov otac napustio majku, prijavljeno je da je morala otići živjeti u gradske odaje prostitutki kako bi spojila kraj s krajem. Armstrong je pomogao tako što je napravio rutu papira, vukao ugljen i prodavao hranu spašenu iz kanti za smeće. Kada je pjevač u usponu, kornet i trubač konačno mogao ostaviti svoje teške dane iza sebe, živeći u New Yorku i Chicagu, bio je poznat po tome što mu je, uprkos svemu, New Orleans dao muzički dar &# 8230 “nešto za život. ”

Priče poput ove o čovjeku koji je zapamćen kao jedan od najvećih kreatora jedinstvene američke umjetničke forme inspirirale su Marsiu Gawecki da istraži džez muzičare i naslika njihova lica na ogromnim transparentima. Njena djela su posljednja dva ljeta ukrašavala Francusku četvrt u Jazz -u u Pinesu na Akademiji umjetnosti Idyllwild. Ovog mjeseca portreti oživljavaju biblioteku Idyllwild u uzbudljivoj eksploziji boja, obilježavajući Mjesec uvažavanja jazza.

Tu su slike Armstronga, Elle Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Ette James i Milesa Davisa, zajedno s vrsnim muzičarima koji predaju na akademiji ili su nastupili na različitim mjestima ovdje kao lokalni stanovnici. Ovo posljednje uključuje 2011 American Idol finalista Casey Abrams i njegov mentor Marshall Hawkins, suosnivač akademskog jazz programa#8217s. Naći ćete i Herba Jeffriesa, koji je bio posljednji živi član benda Duke Ellington prije njegove smrti 2014.

Istaknuti su Chuck Alvarez i Yve Evans, a upotpunjavanje prikazuje Barnaby Finch, koja je obišla svijet s Georgeom Bensonom i Lee Ritenour.

“ Ono što me inspiriše je naporan rad drugih umjetnika, "#8221 Gawecki je rekao u ovonedeljnom intervjuu. “Ljudi poput Louisa Armstronga i Elle Fitzgerald morali su prevladati tako velike prepreke poput siromaštva i rasizma, a ipak su postigli velike stvari. Puno istražujem ljude koje slikam. Jednom sam slušao 18-satnu knjigu na traci o životu Louisa Armstronga. ”

Gawecki je rekla da joj muzičari i priče#8217 daju nadu.

Život umjetnika nije lak jer uvijek mora imati dnevni posao. Radim kao blagajnica na Fairwayu (pijaca) i zahvalna sam na puno radno vrijeme. It inspires me when young people come through my line (at the market) and say that they walk by my house every day and look at the banners that I put in the window. And they are artists too. In a small town you get a lot of support.”

She said The French Quarter’s bartenders tell her the locals really like the color of her banners.

“It really gets them up and dancing!” she said.

Gawecki enjoys painting “big” but even banners have their limitations.

“I was thinking of doing the same work on large wooden panels about the same size,” she said. “I have a couple of doors without knobs lined up in my bedroom right now. But when you go big with wood you have to start thinking about transporting in a truck instead of a Honda civic.”

She plans to target large restaurants that have space to show off her creations.

As a result of her educational display at the Idyllwild library, Gawecki has been commissioned to do five banners of Idyllwild Actors Theatre performers.

“I’m excited about that!” she said.

Her story of coming to Idyllwild is interesting. She was born in Boston and grew up in Omaha Nebraska.

“I’m an Air Force brat,” she said. “Both my parents were in medicine and there were seven of us. So art was my way of getting attention in a large family.”

She came on a visit here after working in South America.

“I just got back from two years in Santiago, Chile where I was the editor of the English language newspaper and taught English,” she said. “I was broke and living with my mom in Temecula and was planning on moving back to Chicago where I had been before. But it takes a lot of money to move to Chicago so I was saving up for that. My mom and I took a day trip to Idyllwild because it was the closest mountain village to Temecula and I was missing the four seasons of Chicago. I fell in love with the place! There was so much overbuilding in Temecula and they were chopping down whole orchards to build new houses. Now I have 40 trees on my property! And I have wildlife at my door so it’s a perfect, quiet, spiritual place to be.

Idyllwild Library Hosts All That Jazz

By Julie Pendray

IDYLLWILD, Calif. — Louis Armstrong spent his youth in and out of the New Orleans Home for Colored Waifs for “delinquency” in his tough neighborhood known as “the battlefield.” When this grandson of slaves wasn’t housed there, he was passed around for varying lengths of time to different members of his extended family. After his father abandoned his mother, it’s reported she had to go live in the town’s prostitute quarters to make ends meet. Armstrong helped by doing a paper route, hauling coal, and selling food salvaged from trash cans. When the rising singer, cornet and trumpet player could finally put his days of hardship behind him, living in New York and Chicago, he was known for saying that, in spite of it all, New Orleans had given him the gift of music … “something to live for.”

Stories like this of a man who is remembered as one of the major developers of a unique American art form, have inspired Marcia Gawecki to research jazz musicians and paint their faces on huge eye-catching banners. Her work has decorated The French Quarter at Jazz in the Pines at Idyllwild Arts Academy for the past two summers. This month, the portraits bring Idyllwild Library to life in an exciting explosion of color, to celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month.

Images of Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Etta James and Miles Davis are there, along with accomplished musicians who teach at the academy or have performed at various venues here as local residents. The latter include 2011 American Idol finalist Casey Abrams and his mentor Marshall Hawkins, co-founder of the academy’s jazz program. You’ll also find Herb Jeffries, who was the last living member of the Duke Ellington Band before his death in 2014.

Chuck Alvarez and Yve Evans are highlighted, and Barnaby Finch, who toured the world with George Benson and Lee Ritenour, completes the display.

“What inspires me is the hard work of other artists,” Gawecki said in an interview this week. “People like Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald had to overcome such great obstacles like poverty and racism and still they accomplished great things. I do a lot of research on the people that I paint. I once listened to an 18-hour book on tape on Louis Armstrong’s life.”

Gawecki said the musicians’ stories give her hope.

“An artist’s life is not easy because he always has to have a day job. I work as a cashier at Fairway (market) and I’m grateful for full-time work. It inspires me when young people come through my line (at the market) and say that they walk by my house every day and look at the banners that I put in the window. And they are artists too. In a small town you get a lot of support.”
