The Art of the Brick®

July 10 - September 13, 2015
Coming to the Tyler Museum of Art as its first Texas stop on its national tour since 2010, The Art of the Brick® is a stunning exhibition featuring more than 25 works painstakingly sculpted out of LEGO® bricks by acclaimed artist Nathan Sawaya.

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.

Admission TMA Members: Free
Adults: $5
Seniors: $3

He makes great food, too!!

The Derailers
Aug. 14 at 8 p.m.
Tickets $20 floor, $15 balcony and VIP boxes are $125 (seat 4)
 In a career that has given rise to more than a decadeʼs worth of fine-tuned, highly anticipated and wonderfully received music, the Derailers continue to build the relationship between song, listener and dance floor. Each album has been a mix of well-crafted original songs and cover songs so thoughtfully chosen and so representative of the band, fans think they are as original as the band themselves. Challenged by their fans to create a sound that mirrors the shuffle of happy boots on a hardwood floor, the Derailers have fed the hungry dancehall crowds with their classic country beats and a 60s pop sensibility. Fans continue to show their appreciation and admiration with requests for encores long after the last drink has been served.
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.

Gloria (2013)
Aug. 20 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $7
 After 12 years of being single, Gloria meets a nervous but loving man, Rodolpho. He's recently divorced and still largely involved in the lives of his ex-wife and their two daughters. Can Gloria, who's children are fiercely independent and whose only real relationship seems to be with her maid, overlook this gentleman's problems and find happiness? Paulina Garcia is so candid in her acting that at times you will be shocked that this is not a documentary. At times sad and at times happy, but never melodramatic or hysterical, "Gloria" takes a mature and beautiful
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.

Kimberly Jim (1963)
August 21 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $7

 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.

Dear White People (2014)
August 27 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $7
 A social satire that follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where controversy breaks out over a popular but offensive black-face party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in acutely-not-post-racial America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world.
And in the first part of September
Card 53 Show
Sept. 12 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $12
 Card 53 Comedy is a short form improv comedy troupe located in Tyler, TX.  The group was
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!
 A Festival for Tyler
 Welcome to the 5th Annual Art of Peace - Tyler, TX.  In just a short time,
our mini-festival has grown from an afternoon of programs to a two-week long series of peace-activities and programs throughout Tyler.

This is a community-wide event to celebrate the United Nations International Day of Peace and encourage community spirit.  The Art of Peace is based on a  similar annual festival that is held in Belton, Texas.  The aim of the Art of Peace - Tyler is to promote a spirit of cooperation and community through fellowship, dialogue, music, poetry, and art. 

The 5th Annual "Art Of Peace - Tyler" is a series of peace-themed events beginning
with the opening of a wonderful art exhibit at the Tyler Museum of Art on September 8th and lasting until the actual International Day of Peace on September 21st . Please view the programs listed in the tabs above, and click to get more information.  Mark these events in your calendars - and let's have another wonderful turnout celebrating Peace with our friends in East Texas.

Ruthie Foster in concert
ART of PEACE Festival
Sept. 19 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $20 online
$25 at the door
$150 for VIP Box seat - seats 4

This concert will be a collaboration with Liberty Hall and The Art of Peace Festival. We are excited to have Ruthie Foster as our performer. Those who have followed Ruthie Foster’s eclectic musical history know that she can burn down any stage with her combustible blend of soul, blues, rock, folk and gospel. Ruthie’s astonishing voice has taken her on an amazing ride. She came from humble church choir beginnings in rural Texas, followed by a tour of duty with the U.S. Navy Band, and ended up in Austin, Texas. Ruthie’s list of achievements include "Best Female Vocalist" in 2007, 2008 and 2013 from the Austin Music Awards, a 2012 and 2009 Grammy nomination for "Best Contemporary Blues Album", the 2010 Living Blues Music Award Critic’s Poll for "Female Blues Artist of the Year" and recent Blues Music Award wins for 2010 "Best Contemporary" and "Best Traditional Blues Female Artist of the Year".

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

Now something fun for the kids!!

Tyler, Texas Bed and Breakfast-The Rosevine Inn- and Extended Stay Suites- The Best in East Texas

Innkeeper Rose Vine Inn Bed & Breakfast 
 Happy Independence Day!! Let's all celebrate this fantastic country we live in.
  July is considered the middle of summer because if the school holidays, although we all know August is truly the middle of summer-and the hottest month. We will feature anything that may be going on in the area and a couple of our favorite places to eat in the area.

The first thing we need to feature is not actually in Tyler! It is in Kilgore, which is about 30 minutes East of Tyler. It is so much entertainment-it is not to be missed  The plays and dates are below.

From his early days as a child-star in his family's vaudeville show up to the time of his comeback at which he received a medal from the president for his special contributions to the US, this is the life- story of George M. Cohan, who produced, directed, wrote and starred in his own musical shows for which he composed his famous songs.

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939)

Naive and idealistic Jefferson Smith, leader of the Boy Rangers, is appointed on a lark by the spineless governor of his state. He is reunited with the state's senior senator--presidential hopeful and childhood hero, Senator Joseph Paine. In Washington, however, Smith discovers many of the shortcomings of the political process as his earnest goal of a national boys' camp leads to a conflict with the state political boss, Jim Taylor. Taylor first tries to corrupt Smith and then later attempts to destroy Smith through a scandal.

Forrest Gump (1994)
July 16 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $7

 Forrest Gump is a simple man with a low I.Q. but good intentions. He is running through childhood with his best and only friend Jenny. His 'mama' teaches him the ways of life and leaves him to choose his destiny. Forrest joins the army for service in Vietnam, finding new friends called Dan and Bubba, he wins medals, creates a famous shrimp fishing fleet, inspires people to jog, starts a ping-pong craze, creates the smiley face bumper sticker and meets several presidents. However, this is all irrelevant to Forrest who can only think of his childhood sweetheart Jenny. Who has messed up her life. Will Forrest get his happily ever after? We all root for Forrest because he is the complete reflection of someone making the most of the time he has on this earth.

$20 for front balcony

 When Grace, Sophia and Hulda Quebe (Kway-bee) raise their fiddles and play, audiences marvel. When the girls sing their three-part harmony, audiences are blown away. The Quebe’s unique brand of music has taken the Americana music scene by storm. They perform a refreshing blend of swing, vintage country, bluegrass, jazz & swing standards, and Texas style fiddling.
Awarded the "Crescendo Award," by the Western Music Association and winner of the "Western Swing Album of the Year" from the Academy of Western Artists, the Quebe Sisters have released their latest album, "Every Which-A-Way".
Performance highlights include appearances at the Grand Ole Opry, the Kennedy Center, NYC's Lincoln Center, "The Marty Stuart Show", "The Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree" and "The Smithsonian Folklife Festival".  "One thing is for sure, you don't see a group like the Quebe Sisters Band come along everyday," says Grand Ole Opry announcer Eddie Stubbs. "Give them your undivided attention and if you're not already, you too, will become a fan." 
Saving Private Ryan (1998)
July 23 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $7

 Opening with the Allied invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944, members of the 2nd Ranger Battalion under Captain Miller fight ashore to secure a beachhead. Amidst the fighting, two brothers are killed in action. Earlier in New Guinea, a third brother is killed in action. Their mother, Mrs. Ryan, is to receive all three of the grave telegrams on the same day. The United States Army Chief of Staff, George C. Marshall, is given an opportunity to alleviate some of her grief when he learns of a fourth brother, Private James Ryan, and decides to send out 8 men to find Sgt. Ryan and bring him home. This is the story of the men who are given this strange and dangerous mission. Is one man's life more valuable than another?

The Tyler Civic Theatre is doing productions this Summer!! We just missed Les Miserables ): but there are two the month of July --First  
July 3, 2015 - July 5, 2015
 The Brothers Grimm "go Broadway" as Sondheim and Lapine offer up a cockeyed fairy tale in Into The Woods JR., an adaptation of one of Sondheim’s most popular works designed especially for young performers.
All of your favorite characters—Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk), and the Witch—meet and interact in this whimsical original story. The musical centers on a baker and his wife who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the king's festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and wind up changed forever.
With unforgettable roles, little dancing, and no chorus, Into The Woods JR. showcases a medium-sized ensemble of talented singers and actors. The sophisticated score has been adapted to make it easier – though still challenging –for young performers. Into The Woods JR. is a funny and engaging way to get young people to think about the stories with which they've grown up and the ethical issues raised therein.

July 23, 2015 - August 2, 2015
The Buddy Holly Story tells the true story of Buddy's meteoric rise to fame, from the moment in 1957 when 'That'll Be the Day' hit the airwaves until his tragic death less than two years later on "The Day the Music Died".
The show features over 20 of Buddy Holly's greatest hits including 'That'll Be the Day', 'Peggy Sue', 'Everyday', 'Oh Boy', 'Not Fade Away', 'Rave On' and 'Raining in My Heart', plus Ritchie Valens' 'La Bamba' and the Big Bopper's 'Chantilly Lace'.
The incredible legacy of the young man with glasses, whose musical career spanned an all-too-brief period during the golden days of rock & roll, continues to live on in Buddy.
Seen by over 22 million people around the world, Buddy will have you on your feet and "send you out of the theater on an unstoppable high" (The Boston Globe)
 Two Great and wonderful Restaurants in Tyler!!

There is a really great patio in Tyler-it is at a grocery store (of all places) called
FRESH BY BROOKSHIRES. This is a wonderful place to go for fireworks viewing!! They have live music on Friday and Saturday, too. Great food-beer and wine. Then at dark thirty the neighborhood just to the northeast does their fireworks display. It is perfect.

The next place we want to feature this time is 
A Destination Restaurant Come to Lago del Pino to experience all that makes Tyler’s destination restaurant an oasis in the countryside. From its spectacular private lake views and its distinctive fountain show, to its eclectic live music, relaxed dining, and fabulous wine list, you’ll quickly recognize all that makes dining at Lago del Pino more than just a memorable meal. Our chef
prepares a variety of traditional cuisine including fine steaks, pasta, one-of-a-kind burgers, gluten free options, and fresh seasonal vegetables and salads. 

They also have live music on the weekend and a fabulous patio. My bet is they will have fireworks over the lake on the 4th, although I can't find any info on this!

Canton First Monday is July 2-5 and in August July 30-August 2.
Hope this may help with your shopping plans-If you don't want to
brave the Summer heat stay in Tyler and visit the best antique mall in Texas.

302 East Locust St, Tyler Tx 75702

That place we remember when the present doesn't quite measure up to our expectations. Enjoy the nostalgia of days gone by with a pleasant visit to Ye Olde City Antique Mall where you can find those items that bring back precious memories.
     There has been an antique mall and/or flea market at the current location of Ye Olde City for decades.  Over the years, the property languished and lost much of its former charm.  In April 2007, the Powell brothers, Bert and Robert, acquired the property from the Swann Estate.  A lot of time and effort has gone in to restoring the property to its former self and to creating an atmosphere of "old world charm".
    Our Dealers add a nice warmth and friendliness to make your shopping experience a pleasant one.  We hope you enjoy the way that the mall flows.  New surprises lurk around every corner.  Hopefully, you will find whatever you want!
That's it for now -  come on and spend a night or two, or more!! at the Rosevine Inn Bed and Breakfast 
You can rest relax and follow our  motto::
One minute you are relaxing, the next you are playing, then you meet a new friend!
Return to your carefree days when your biggest worries were: When can we go out to play? When do we go to bed? What's for breakfast? 

 Bye till next time!!

His unusual perspective has earned him respect from his peers and and high fives from his kids. He is a regular Hyena’s Comedy Clubs, Backdoor Comedy and LMAO Paris. Brandon performs his comedy in colleges, clubs and bars across the South. He once used the bathroom next to former President Bill Clinton at a movie theater while watching the smash hit Encino Man. He'll be giving piggy back rides after
the show.

Jay Whitecotton is the product of a paranoid schizophrenic mother who thought aliens came down with British royalty to impregnate her, a manic depressive alcoholic father who would beat him in the middle of the night, and a brother who spent most of his life in jail possibly because Mom made him shoot a guy over a bad crack deal. BANANAS!
 He survived 5 years of homelessness, overcome many bad relationships, and decided to pursue his love of stand up comedy after the band didn't 'make it'.  By 2012, Jay was voted Reader’s Choice Best Local Comedian by the San Antonio Current and immediately moved to Austin, TX. Since then he’s been featured at many festivals including The Limestone Comedy Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Hell Yes! Comedy Fest, The Cape Fear Comedy Festival, and Punk Rock & Bowling Las Vegas. In 2015, Whitecotton did his second tour sponsored by Doug Stanhope’s Celebrity Death Pool and signed a record deal with Stand Up! Records. His debut album will be released later this year.”

Pink Floyd The Wall (1982) June 25 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $7 The movie tells the story of rock singer "Pink" who is sitting in his hotel room in Los Angeles, burnt out from the music business and only able to perform on stage with the help of drugs. Based on the 1979 double album "The Wall" by Pink Floyd, the film begins in Pink's youth where he is crushed by the love of his mother.

For questions...

 George Lawton (Grandpa) has finally been convinced by his two grandchildren to move out of his large home and into a retirement center. Having lost his beloved wife a few years ago, the home is too much for George to handle. He reluctantly agrees. All of his items have been moved out, except those in his attic. Unbeknownst to him, his grandchildren have invited his former barbershop chorus members to come help him move. Bringing out item after item not only brings back memories, but also songs by his former barbershop buddies. The memories are funny, inspiring, and touching, as George is able to recall and talk about many memories of his life.

This is a feel-good story for all ages and one that will touch the hearts and lives of many. Looking back over our lives is both a joyous and, sometimes painful process to which we all can relate.
 Please come and join the East Texas Men In Harmony as they present Grandpa’s Attic on June 20th at the Robert E. Lee High School Fine Arts Center at 2:30 pm and 7 pm. Tickets click here
