The Art of the Brick®
From Sawaya's artist statement: On and off, I intentionally intermix subject matter that is steeped in heavy sentiment with the lighthearted and whimsical. The purpose of this is two-fold. I realize families and children are drawn to my art because of the unique medium in which it was created and I welcome that. But it is also a necessary break for me to create whimsy in addition to the construction of the complex human forms.

In terms of sound, the Derailers have gotten smoother with age. As Hofeldt puts it, “I think we have retained the path we are going for. But we have certainly grown as players and allowed other influences to come in.” Their music celebrates the legacies of Buck Owens, George Jones, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Charlie Rich and the Beatles, while still being on the edge of todayʼs country music. Hofeldt describes his view of country music as, “finding out what love really is, versus what you thought it was when you were a kid.” For all the fans of the Derailers, love is all you need. www.derailers.com

look at single life after 50.
Her scenes with her children highlight her role in their lives - she is free of their dependency. The one scene in which the couple's children are together at a birthday party gives the audience so much. Needless to say, the tension and energy created when Rodolpho comes face to face with the competitors for her affection is incredible and destructive and so very, very real.
The film contains some serious sex scenes between two middle aged people entering old age. Finally, you probably won't see a more euphoric end to a film. When Gloria gets up to dance to the disco stormer of the 80s named after her, you'll be hard pressed not to join in.

The story tells of a ramblin', gamblin', guitar-strummin' man from Dixie, trying to strike it rich in the Kimberley Diamond region. Accompanying him is his mischievous side-kick - a man with a song in his heart and four aces up his sleeve.

started in 2009 by co-founders Aaron Smith and Jamey Whitley. The troupe’s chemistry and strong following has blown up since and have performed for Tyler Independent School District, Tyler Junior College, and Liberty Hall.
A typical Card 53 show consists of eight 3-5 minute sketches or “games” where the audience will be asked to give a suggestion such as a location, movie genre, or emotion. The actors will then make everything up on stage going off their instincts using props and costumes as needed. Due to the unpredictable nature of the show, the actors strive very hard to provide a professionally clean show. Usually the appropriateness could be compared to a PG-13 movie rating. Join us for a fun date night adventure!

Foster's newest release, "Promise of a Brand New Day," produced by Meshell Ndegeocello,has been honored by the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS) with her third straight GRAMMY nomination for 2015 "Best Blues Album".
Opening for Ruthie will be Ramoth-Gilead (Ray-Moth, Gil-EE-ad). Raymoth became interested in music at Van Jr. High school and played the tuba. After transferring to John Tyler High School in the 11th grade, Ramoth joined the orchestra and quickly learned to play cello and double bass. Later, Ramoth picked up a few other instruments, required courses, and a deeper respect for music and musicians of various genres. He graduated from Texas College with a B.S. in Music Education, but it wasn't until after college that he realized his God-given gift to write songs was something unique that he couldn't have learned from any institution. Ramoth taught himself guitar in a matter of months and traveled the U.S. with his songs and a new dream --- to make a significant contribution to the music world with his own sound.
Ramoth-Gilead (the really bad) currently performs all over the Ark-La-Tex. Ramoth's 2007 debut album, ATTRACTING A CROWD, is a live recorded performance which gives the listener an opportunity to hear why so many people are attracted to his clever way with words and his unique guitar style. For new music and updates, find him on Facebook.com/RamothGilead.
