Glede na prenatrpanost barov na čikaškem Logan Squareu je skrajni čas, da se odpre mesto, ki je za dopoldne. Soba Kombucha ponuja 20 sort istoimenskega fermentiranega napitka pivovarjev Srednjega zahoda, ki govori o črevesju prijaznih probiotikih (in vsaj pri tistih, ki so na voljo tukaj, brez alkohola). Čez dan je mesto polno bleščečih oči, ki iščejo rešitev-pred temo je to najbolj obremenjen bar v soseski.

IDYLLWILD, Kalifornija 8217t, ki so ga tam hranili, so ga različno dolgo predajali različnim članom njegove širše družine. Potem ko je njegov oče zapustil svojo mamo, so poročali, da mora živeti v mestni prostori prostitutke, da bi preživela. Armstrong je pomagal s papirnato potjo, prevozom premoga in prodajo hrane, rešene iz košev za smeti. Ko je naraščajoči pevec, kornet in trobentač končno pustil za seboj težke dneve, ko je živel v New Yorku in Chicagu, je bil znan po tem, da mu je kljub vsemu New Orleans dal glasbeni dar &# 8230 “nekaj za življenje. ”

Zgodbe, kot je ta, o človeku, ki se ga spominjamo kot enega večjih razvijalcev edinstvene ameriške umetniške oblike, so navdihnile Marcio Gawecki, da razišče jazzovske glasbenike in nariše njihov obraz na ogromne privlačne transparente. Njeno delo je zadnja dva poletja krasilo Francosko četrt v Jazz in the Pines na Umetniški akademiji Idyllwild. Ta mesec portreti oživijo knjižnico Idyllwild v vznemirljivi barvni eksploziji, ki praznuje Mesec cenjenja jazza.

Slike Armstronga, Elle Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Ette James in Milesa Davisa so tam, skupaj z vrhunskimi glasbeniki, ki poučujejo na akademiji ali so nastopali na različnih prizoriščih kot lokalni prebivalci. Slednji vključujejo leto 2011 Ameriški idol finalistka Casey Abrams in njegov mentor Marshall Hawkins, soustanovitelj akademskega jazz programa#8217s. Prav tako boste našli Herba Jeffriesa, ki je bil pred njegovo smrtjo leta 2014 zadnji živi član skupine Duke Ellington Band.

Poudarjena sta Chuck Alvarez in Yve Evans, prikaz pa zaključi Barnaby Finch, ki je z Georgeom Bensonom in Leejem Ritenourjem obiskala svet.

“Navdihuje me trdo delo drugih umetnikov, "#8221 je Gawecki dejal v intervjuju ta teden. “Ljudje, kot sta Louis Armstrong in Ella Fitzgerald, so morali premagati tako velike ovire, kot sta revščina in rasizem, a so kljub temu dosegli velike stvari. Veliko raziskujem ljudi, ki jih slikam. Nekoč sem poslušal 18-urno knjigo na traku o življenju Louisa Armstronga. ”

Gawecki je dejal, da ji glasbeniki in#8217 zgodbe dajejo upanje.

Umetnikovo življenje ni lahko, saj mora vedno imeti dnevno službo. Delam kot blagajnik na Fairwayu (tržnica) in hvaležen sem za polni delovni čas. Navdihuje me, ko mladi pridejo skozi mojo linijo (na tržnico) in pravijo, da vsak dan hodijo ob moji hiši in gledajo transparente, ki sem jih postavil v okno. In tudi umetniki so. V majhnem mestu dobiš veliko podpore. ”

Rekla je, da ji natakarji iz Francoske četrti pravijo, da je domačinom zelo všeč barva njenih transparentov.

“ Res jih vzbudi in zapleše! ” je rekla.

Gawecki rad slika “big ”, vendar imajo tudi pasice svoje omejitve.

“ Razmišljala sem, da bi isto delo opravila na velikih lesenih ploščah približno enake velikosti, ” je dejala. “V moji spalnici je zdaj postavljenih nekaj vrat brez gumbov. Ko pa greš z lesom, moraš začeti razmišljati o prevozu v tovornjaku namesto Honde Civic. ”

Načrtuje, da bo ciljala na velike restavracije, ki imajo prostor, da pokažejo svoje stvaritve.

Zaradi izobraževalnega dela v knjižnici Idyllwild je Gawecki naročila, da naredi pet transparentov gledaliških izvajalcev Idyllwild Actors.

“I ’m sem navdušena nad tem! ” je rekla.

Njena zgodba o prihodu v Idyllwild je zanimiva. Rodila se je v Bostonu in odraščala v Omahi Nebraska.

“I ’m letalica letalskih sil, ” je rekla. “ Oba sta bila moja starša na medicini in nas je bilo sedem. Tako je bila umetnost moj način pridobivanja pozornosti v veliki družini. ”

Prišla je na obisk po delu v Južni Ameriki.

“ Pravkar sem se vrnil iz dveh let v Santiagu v Čilu, kjer sem bil urednik časopisa za angleški jezik in poučeval angleščino, ” je dejala. “ Bil sem pokvarjen in živel z mamo v Temeculi in nameraval sem se preseliti nazaj v Chicago, kjer sem bil že prej. Toda za selitev v Chicago je potrebno veliko denarja, zato sem prihranil za to. Z mamo sva se odpravila na enodnevni izlet v Idyllwild, ker je bila Temecula najbližja gorska vas in pogrešala sem štiri letne čase Chicaga. Zaljubil sem se v kraj! V Temeculi je bilo toliko prenove in so sekali cele sadovnjake za gradnjo novih hiš. Zdaj imam na svojem posestvu 40 dreves! Pred vrati imam divje živali, zato je to popoln, miren in duhoven kraj.

“ Pravkar sem se vrnil iz dveh let v Santiagu v Čilu, kjer sem bil urednik časopisa za angleški jezik in poučeval angleščino, ” je dejala. “ Bil sem pokvarjen in živel z mamo v Temeculi in se nameraval vrniti v Chicago, kjer sem bil že prej. Toda za selitev v Chicago je potrebno veliko denarja, zato sem prihranil za to. Z mamo sva se odpravila na enodnevni izlet v Idyllwild, ker je bila Temecula najbližja gorska vas in pogrešala sem štiri letne čase v Chicagu. Zaljubil sem se v kraj! V Temeculi je bilo toliko prenove in so sekali cele sadovnjake za gradnjo novih hiš. Zdaj imam na svojem posestvu 40 dreves! Pred vrati imam divje živali, zato je to popoln, miren in duhoven kraj.

IDYLLWILD, Kalifornija 8217t, ki so ga tam hranili, so ga različno dolgo predajali različnim članom njegove širše družine. Potem ko je njegov oče zapustil svojo mamo, so poročali, da mora živeti v mestni prostori prostitutke, da bi preživela. Armstrong je pomagal s papirnato potjo, prevozom premoga in prodajo hrane, rešene iz košev za smeti. Ko je naraščajoči pevec, kornet in trobentač končno pustil za seboj težke dneve, ko je živel v New Yorku in Chicagu, je bil znan po tem, da mu je kljub vsemu New Orleans dal glasbeni dar &# 8230 “nekaj za življenje. ”

Zgodbe, kot je ta, o človeku, ki se ga spominjamo kot enega večjih razvijalcev edinstvene ameriške umetniške oblike, so navdihnile Marcio Gawecki, da razišče jazzovske glasbenike in nariše njihov obraz na ogromne pasice. Njeno delo je zadnja dva poletja krasilo Francosko četrt v Jazz in the Pines na Umetniški akademiji Idyllwild. Ta mesec portreti oživijo knjižnico Idyllwild v vznemirljivi barvni eksploziji, ki praznuje Mesec cenjenja jazza.

Slike Armstronga, Elle Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Ette James in Milesa Davisa so tam, skupaj z vrhunskimi glasbeniki, ki poučujejo na akademiji ali so nastopali na različnih prizoriščih kot lokalni prebivalci. Slednji vključujejo leto 2011 Ameriški idol finalistka Casey Abrams in njegov mentor Marshall Hawkins, soustanovitelj akademskega jazz programa#8217s. Prav tako boste našli Herba Jeffriesa, ki je bil pred njegovo smrtjo leta 2014 zadnji živi član skupine Duke Ellington Band.

Poudarjena sta Chuck Alvarez in Yve Evans, prikaz pa zaključi Barnaby Finch, ki je z Georgeom Bensonom in Leejem Ritenourjem obiskala svet.

“Navdihuje me trdo delo drugih umetnikov, "#8221 je Gawecki dejal v intervjuju ta teden. “Ljudi, kot sta Louis Armstrong in Ella Fitzgerald, so morali premagati tako velike ovire, kot sta revščina in rasizem, a so kljub temu dosegli velike stvari. Veliko raziskujem ljudi, ki jih slikam. Nekoč sem poslušal 18-urno knjigo na traku o življenju Louisa Armstronga. ”

Gawecki je dejal, da ji glasbeniki in#8217 zgodbe dajejo upanje.

“Umetnikovo življenje ni lahko, ker mora vedno imeti dnevno službo. Delam kot blagajnik na Fairwayu (trg) in hvaležen sem za polni delovni čas. 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 Ameriški 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.”
