Sculptures in Wood by Nick George
Opening Reception Thursday February 26th at 7pm
Exhibition Continues until Monday March 23rd
Nick was born and raised in Fernie, choosing his hometown to raise his three children with his wife, Sylvia. After retirement from the mine, Nick started puttering with wood in the basement of his 5th Ave home. When he and Sylvia later moved to his childhood home on 3rd Ave he set up a shop in the backyard shed. His first creations were a logging truck and toys for his grandchildren and his friends’ children. He then progressed to building more and more complex machines. This pastime keeps Nick sane in the winter months.

You’ll enjoy the range of Nicks work, from detailed working models of machines and vehicles to skillfully executed static reproductions. Also on display will be a beautiful wooden sculpture of a deer.

Andrew, a promising 19-year-old drummer at a cutthroat Manhattan music conservatory, has little interest in being just a musician. Haunted by his father’s failed writing career and plagued with the fear that mediocrity just might be genetic, Andrew dreams of greatness. Determined not to follow in his father’s footsteps, he practices daily until his hands literally bleed. The pressure of success ratchets into high gear when he is picked to join the school band led by the infamous Terence Fletcher, a brutally savage music instructor who will stop at nothing to realize a student’s potential. Under Fletcher’s ruthless direction, Andrew begins to pursue perfection at any cost—even his humanity.

Innovative and electrifying, Toronto jazz drummer Ernesto Cervini has energy to burn, whether radiating it from behind his kit or working on any number of musical and educational projects. On the heels of his 3rd album “There” recorded by his quartet live at the Cellar Jazz Club in Vancouver, BC Cervini has added two more instruments to the fold to create the new sextet, Turboprop. The band features his regular quartet of Joel Frahm on Tenor Saxophone, Adrean Farrugia on Piano, Dan Loomis on Bass and Cervini on Drums, plus Tara Davidson on Alto Saxophone and William Carn on Trombone.
