    Olivia Pendergast is creating a large show of 20-24 portraits of the Haitian People for a gallery show in the Seattle area called "Forgetting Haiti". Her intention is to investigate the response to heartbreak and the process of forgetting as distinguished from healing: personal, cultural & political. To see more of her work and her interest in humanity please visit her site www.oliviapendergast.com Some of the... images from the show will be printed as large posters, 6-8’. Twenty of these posters will hang in outdoor locations such as bus stops and under bridges in Seattle area. The degeneration of these posters will be recorded in a time lapse video art piece as they weather and/or are covered up, representational of mind’s resistance to pain. There will be a blog featuring her poems, meditations, sketches & photos. Olivia has been invited to show this body of work at the Blue Heron Fine Art Center on Vashon Island in July, 2011. There will be an opening of the show of paintings at Blue Heron Gallery that is free to the public in July. The funding is to cover the following costs: Rental of studio space, printing & hanging posters, framing for the show, transportation costs (including ferry rides), food & invitations, cost of producing a video. The Line Up: Tina Zucchero: spoken word, Karin Armbrust: Emcee & Monologue, Music by: Ella Rose, Bruce Haedt, Alek Vila, Sam Eliason; Snarky Pillow. After the live performances, Olivia will be playing a playlist from her dances that she facilitates. Dance party to wrap up the night! Sliding Scale: $20.-$10. Some trade shifts available on Friday & Sunday. No one turned away for lack of funds. What to bring besides your sweet selves: Potluck snacks; BYOB. Some refreshments will be provided. Some folks choose back jacks or folding chairs from home as opposed to the pillow pile or benches that will be provided.

    Imagine... It's Friday, January 7th. You are gathered in an elegant West Seattle coffeehouse and bakery. Many good friends have come together to celebrate life with music. Starting at 8pm, David Guilbault sings and strums his guitar, accompanied by Alek Vila on electric guitar. David shares his naked musical poetry while you enjoy a hot beverage and something sweet from the bakery. Somewhere in the middle of this free two-hour performance, Alek delivers a few original songs and a familiar song or two. It's a tasty treat that will leave you wanting more! Then it's back to David with songs that will move, inspire, and satisfy you. Welcome to a night of passionate voices and gentle music (with a few zingers to keep things moving). Perhaps the show is your main event of the evening, or maybe it's just the beginning... enjoy! No cover charge. Find David Guilbault on Facebook or ReverbNation: http://www.facebook.com/pages/David-Guilbault-Singer-Songwriter/163009577073206 http://www.reverbnation.com/davidguilbault http://www.sugarrushbakingcompany.com (206) 937-1495

    My next public appearance will be outdoors, just South of the Greenlake Community Center on September 4th. Register to help raise money for Pigs Peace Sanctuary, walk around the lake before the show, and enjoy the company of animal supporters like you at the gathering after the walk. I'll play with guitarist and singer Marty Ofsowitz, performing 50's, 60's, and 80's songs plus a few originals! Even if you're not involved with the walk, come out and enjoy the show. The start time will depend on how it takes people to complete the walk. We're guessing around 12:15pm, and we'll play for 90 minutes or more. We will be located directly South of the Community Center. Event web site: http://www.pigspeace.org/events/walkDirections.html
