Andrea Burke in the Robert F. Cage Art Gallery

Posted on in General

Showtime at The Prizery 271x400

Clarksville artist, Andrea Burke, will open her exhibit at the Robert F. Cage Art Gallery at The Prizery with a reception on Sunday, November 8th from 3:00pm – 5:00pm. The exhibit will continue through December.

Art has always been a part of Andrea’s life in one way or another with many types of venues from piano, violin, and oboe; to clay, bread dough, tole painting and lots of sewing. She took her first watercolor class at the San Diego Art Museum in 2000, and has been hooked ever since with the variety of textures, the movement of the paint in the water, the array of techniques, and the endless potential for continuous growth!

Andrea has been blessed with many teachers and mentors since then. She has studied with nationally known artists: Lynn Ferris; Laurie Goldstein-Warren; Sterling Edwards; Laurie Humble; and Karlyn Holman. Her latest teacher is Susan Harrison-Tustain of New Zealand! Her techniques and style have taken Andrea to places in her heart she has never been before! It's changing the way she thinks about subjects to paint - looking for the story, the relationship, the feelings. She has not been excited like this about art in a long, long time! She has been accepted as a Signature Member of the West Virginia Watercolor Society since 2013.

Andrea and her husband, Jim, have recently moved to Clarksville, VA to a wonderful lake community on the border of North Carolina in September of 2013. Her artwork is featured for sale locally at “The Galleria on the Lake” in downtown Clarksville, along with many other artists. She loves to paint, and as Jim says, “it’s cheaper than therapy!” For more information about Andrea and her work, visit www.watercolorsbyandreaburke.com.

Mountain Heart and Matt Boswell - Saturday, November 7th

Posted on in General

Mountainheart 2015 EAF8677 800x494

The Prizery is thrilled to welcome back Mountain Heart to the Chastain Theatre on Saturday, November 7th at 7:30pm with Matt Boswell as the opening act. The band has sold out twice before at The Prizery, and is expected to do so again.

Mountain Heart is the band that has been fearlessly revolutionizing the way acoustic music can be presented and played. The band's name has been synonymous with cutting-edge excellence in acoustic music circles since the group's creation in 1999. Widely known throughout the music industry for continually redefining the boundaries of acoustic music, the band has gained legions of loyal fans both as a result of their superlative musicianship, and just as notably, their incendiary live performances.

Mountain Heart or members have been nominated for Grammy’s, ACM, CMA awards. The band has also been nominated for and won multiple IBMA's. They have appeared on the revered stage of the Grand Ole Opry in excess of 130 times, and have shared the stage with acts ranging from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Montgomery Gentry, Merle Haggard, George Jones and Brad Paisley to Alison Krauss, Tony Rice, The Avett Brothers, Yonder Mountain Stringband, The Punch Brothers, Levon Helm, and John Fogerty. 



From large outdoor folk music and bluegrass festivals, to sold-out shows opening for Southern Rock icons like The Marshall Tucker Band, The Tedeshi Trucks Band or Lynyrd Skynyrd, Mountain Heart always makes an undeniable connection with an audience. This rare combination makes Mountain Heart one of the more versatile musical acts ever assembled.

Throughout the band's storied history, members past and present have dedicated their time, talent, and creativity to the group, leading to their hard earned reputation as one of the most exciting and unforgettable live shows anywhere in the world. With a new team in place, Mountain Heart is beyond excited for this new beginning and journey ahead. Mountain Heart is: Josh Shilling, Aaron Ramsey, Seth Taylor, Jeff Partin, and Molly Cherryholmes.
