The Grape Easel... Helping Joe Blow Create Van Gogh!

June 08, 2010
Be advised that NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED! The Grape Easel events are located in blowfish emporium in order to offer its apprentices a casual environment in which to create, as well as offer an inviting space for friends to mingle with one another while they delve into their own interpretations of the featured piece. We are sure you will walk away with not only a beautiful work of art, but a memorable experience! These events are open to even the most inexperienced novice painter. Whether you’re an accountant or a carpenter, a teacher or doctor- we will open up the artist within you.

The class theme Thursday night is DATE NIGHT!!! (Bring a date, your mom/daughter/son/brother & come make a night of painting & fun!) . Painting events start @ 6PM and are $30+tax per person (includes EVERYTHING- canvas, paint, tools & instruction- You just show up!) This is NOT a painting class. It is very relaxed & informal. The point is to have fun & allow yourself the option to get as creative as you want. NO SKILL IS REQUIRED, really!

*Pre-registration is suggested, 276-644-1428 or info@blowfishemporium.com. Minimum of 5 people or event is cancelled. If cancelled, notice will be posted on Facebook & Twitter. For more information, please visit our website at www.blowfishemporium.com

June 08, 2010
Saturday, June 12th at 6:30PM, Tri Cities Got Talent Benefitting Kari’s Heart Fund (KHF) will be sponsoring the First Annual Tri Cities Got Talent competition to be held June 12 , 2010 at Paramount Center. For more information go to www.karisheartfoundation.org to download entry form and official rules. All proceeds from the event will benefit families of children experiencing a healthcare crisis. The winner of the competition will be sponsored by Kari's Heart Foundation to audition at the next America's Got Talent competition.

Tri-Cities’ own group J4 (winner of the CBS morning show talent competition) will perform at the finals. J4 exploded into the national music spotlight this year as the winners of the CBS Singing Family Face Off. They reach out to the youth of today with a positive message, and yet they bridge the generational gap with their musical versatility and classical influence. Their musical style, performance, and personality work together to produce more than just a concert- they produce an experience. Music runs deep in the roots of this sibling group from East Tennessee. Although young, these experienced brothers and sisters all sing, play multiple instruments, and please their audiences with a musical style and stage presence in a way only siblings can.

Tickets are $22 and may be purchased by calling the Paramount box office 423-274-8920 or on-line www.etix.com.
