Green River Adventure Sports hosts two new artists, Joseph Fenwick and Jo Howard.
Joseph Fenwick is a local construction worker and photographer who enjoys the art of both. He has taken an interest in pictorial documentation of construction of local wind farms for their historical and artistic values. Seen from the perspective of a structural engineer, he presents a photographic display of the Shady Oaks Wind Energy construction site and offers a view of skilled workmanship set against the beauty of sunrises and sunsets.
Jo Howard traveled the world with her husband before he retired from the Army. She has collected sea shells for a very long time and began arranging them into floral patterns several years ago. Some of them sell for several hundred dollars. She began designing earrings only a few years ago. Along with Joseph and Jo, Green River Adventure Sports offers the acoustic music of Jeff Kagay and Charlie Gall.
The holiday theme continues at The Crystal Cork Wine Shoppe with, ‘”Sounds of the Season’’, featuring the lovely Kathy Cecchetti and Jim Miller, from 7-9pm.
