Photography Seminar with Wendy Gedak

Professional fine art photographer Wendy Gedak will be this year’s judge of the annual Visions of Light Photographic Exhibition.

Gedak will also be hosting the Judge’s Seminar on February 28 at the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts. Her seminar will guide photographers through “Exploring Colorado’s Fall Landscapes,” as she talks about the best places to photograph fall color in Colorado and explains how to find peak fall color. She will also focus on creative techniques, such as shooting panoramics, sunburst, and panning.

Gedak is a nature and landscape photographer living in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Photography was an early passion, driven by her desire to capture a glimpse of the vast landscape. Her keen eye for photography, born out of that deep appreciation and desire for nature, is demonstrated through her ability to capture light and depth, drama and character, in a scene.

Her daily inspiration comes from the magnificence that surrounds her in Colorado. She is amazed by the grandeur of the Rocky Mountain landscape. Each time she ventures out or returns to a location, whether it be the changing seasons, time of the day, or the fog lurking over the terrain, she notices something unique and original.

Wendy’s photographs portray a lasting connection with the natural elements, lighting, emotion, and events in time. She uses composition and style to craft images that awaken the senses to the beauty of visual arts.

Wardrobes & Rings is a play set in Oxford’s Eagle & Child pub. Aging and legendary authors, J.R.R. Tolkien and his great friend C.S. Lewis, meet for what turns out to be the very last time.

They were lions of 20th century British fantasy, giants of a literary genre that reached millions of readers, young and old alike, with mystifying adventures to entertain and deep truths to move people’s hearts.C.S. Lewis (The Chronicles of Narnia) and J.R.R. Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings) were also distinguished faculty members at Oxford University and participants in a literary group known as The Inklings.

Their robust philosophical discourse served an uncommon friendship that was not without its differences. Life’s circumstances and sometimes unresolved disagreements forced an uncomfortable season of estrangement.

In Wardrobes and Rings we join “Jack” and “Tollers,” as they knew each other, at Oxford’s historic Eagle and Child pub for one last visit, tempered by thawing humor, confession and reconciliation. Remarkable lives. Memorable theatre.

The New Christy Minstrels: An American Large-Ensemble Folk Group

The New Christy Minstrels
Still Under the Direction of Randy Sparks

April 26, 2019, 7 p.m.

Because of a death in the New Christy Minstrels family, their concert (previously scheduled for December 15, 2018) is being postponed until April 26, 2019. Tickets already purchased will apply toward the new date. Thank you for your kind consideration.

           (This is NOT a tribute band.)  The New Christy Minstrels® (officially known as The New Christy Minstrels®, Still Under the Direction of Randy Sparks) is an American large-ensemble folk music group founded by Randy Sparks in 1961, and currently in concerts across the country, still going, better than ever with 100% record of at least one standing ovation per concert since Randy Sparks revised the group with the current line up of stellar entertainers!
From their beginnings as prominent figures in the early-1960s U.S. folk revival, the group recorded over 20 albums and had several hits, including Green, Green, Saturday Night, Today, Denver, and This Land Is Your Land. Their 1962 debut album, Presenting The New Christy Minstrels won a Grammy Award and sat in the Billboard charts for two years.  Available at their live concerts are the current CDs:  The Greatest Hits CD, RECYCLED; their most recently recorded CD with this group of performers,  NICE TIME TO BE ALIVE,  and a rare find in the recordings from the Sony Record vaults –  the RAMBLIN’  Extended CD.
           The group has launched the musical careers of several musicians, including Kenny Rogers, Gene Clark, Kim Carnes, and Barry McGuire.  No performing group has ever spawned so many successful musical careers as the New Christy Minstrels®.  “For over fifty years we have been the best talent show ever,” says Sparks. ” We still are.”  Don’t miss any opportunity to see this stellar group in concert!  For their history and present accomplishments visit www.thenewchristyminstrels.com
