Art Film Night: I'm Not There

Join us for an evening of film, art, and conversation. We will be showing "I'm Not There"

desciption of film:

Six incarnations of Bob Dylan: an actor, a folk singer, an electrified troubadour, Rimbaud, Billy the Kid, and Woody Guthrie. Put Dylan's music behind their adventures, soliloquies, interviews, marriage, and infidelity. Recreate 1960s documentaries in black and white. Put each at a crossroads, the artist becoming someone else. Jack, the son of Ramblin' Jack Elliott, finds Jesus; handsome Robbie falls in love then abandons Claire. Woody, a lad escaped from foster care, hobos the U.S. singing; Billy awakes in a valley threatened by a six-lane highway; Rimbaud talks. Jude, booed at Newport when he goes electric, fences with reporters, pundits, and fans. He won't be classified. (2007)

Live Music: Mike&Jo with Marc Harper

Join us for an evening of live music from Mike& Jo and opening musician Marc Harper!

Marc Harper:
Marc Harper caught the wandering troubadour bug early in life, and has long since given up looking for a cure. A native of Baltimore, Marc originally trained as a classical pianist, and has spent decades broadening his instrumental and writing influences, while gaining inspiration from the people and stories he has found while living throughout much of the US and Canada. In and around following the music, he has pursued careers as varied as counseling, animal rescue and IT consulting. Marc has somewhat settled down in the Potomac Highlands of eastern West Virginia, but is always looking for new roads to ride, new folks to meet, and new tales to tell.

‘Days Like This’, from his most recent CD ‘Heading For The Hills’, was recently listed on the Nashville Songwriters’ Association International “Ones to Watch” list.

Mike&Jo:

Mike&Jo are a folk-rock duo whose original songs are inspired by places, people, and experiences from their travels around the U.S.A. Soulful harmonies, hard-hitting acoustic guitar, and tongue twisting lyrics will pull in any listener to the deeper message of their original songs.

Meet Featured Gallery Artist: Melissa Snell

Join us as we hold an opening reception for November's featured gallery artist, local photographer Melissa Snell.

Melissa lives in Capon Bridge and has a love for capturing raw images, just as one would see them with the naked eye.

"I became interested in photography through my life-long love of birding; I wanted to capture the images to enjoy at home. I have since expanded to capturing images of other wild life, landscapes, and rural scenes, mostly in Virginia and West Virginia. Lately, I have started doing environmental portraits and black and white images." - Melissa

Her work will be on display and for sale during the month of November in The River House gallery.
