Jammin Java, 227 Maple Ave
Vienna, 22180

Nora Jane Struthers has written “some of the most quietly powerful narratives within the new wave of Americana artists” – NPR Music. The songs that weave themselves into the fabric of listeners’ lives are usually the ones in which an artist lays her soul bare for the world to hear. Struthers’ current release Champion, is built on these kinds of songs. The 13-song collection written with her band the Party Line, is the follow-up to 2015’s Wake, which earned Struthers acclaim from major outlets like NPR Music, Rolling Stone Country, and “Fresh Air” and their Live show is full to the brim with stellar musicianship, unexpected arrangements that blur the lines between folk, roots, and rock, and an audible sense that everyone in the room is having a damn good time. When not on the road, the band’s been in-studio recording their next release.

“John Borden Evans: Blue Moon”

Wednesday, October 17, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Les Yeux du Monde, 841 Wolf Trap Rd.
Charlottesville, VA 22911 United States

Les Yeux du Monde is pleased to present “John Borden Evans: Blue Moon” from 13 October through 11 November 2018. Evans, who has been exhibiting with LYDM since 1997, is well known for his paintings of his North Garden environs seen at different times of day and in all seasons. The paintings are richly textured with countless layers of acrylic underpainting often in brilliant hues, lending mystery, surprise and pulsating life to the final work. Although his subjects are ordinary Virginia landscapes, often including grazing sheep or cattle that he encounters daily, the animals, objects or trees take on an otherworldly aura. Every natural or man-made element in his works contains its own seed of life and energy, thus lending a pantheistic magic to the whole.

There will be a Lunch with the Artist on Wednesday, October 31 from noon to 1 p.m. (reservations required, $15 per person) and a Closing Reception on Sunday, November 11 from 2 – 4 p.m. For more information, call 434-973-5566 or visit the gallery’s new website, www.LYDM.co.
