George Bogart - Pollen 2002

George Bogart (1933-2005) was a brilliant and prodigious painter with an innate feel for color and space. His work was exhibited all over the United States throughout his career and is included in numerous private and public collections. Bogart was born in Fond du Lac, a suburb of Duluth, Minnesota.  After receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Minnesota at Duluth in 1956, he moved to Seattle, Washington, where he did his graduate work, receiving his Master of Fine Arts degree in 1959.  He then spent eight years in Austin, Texas, teaching at the University of Texas.  Moving on from there, he taught for three years at Penn State University before landing at the University of Oklahoma. In 1978 he took a year’s leave to accept a Visiting Artist position at the University of California, Berkeley. Returning to Norman, he continued to teach at OU until his retirement in 1997.  As Professor Emeritus, he was twice asked to return to teach drawing classes.  Between his retirement and his death in 2005 he enjoyed doing what he’d always wanted to do: be a full-time artist.  The Depot Gallery is privileged to offer a showing of Bogart’s work, curated by his widow Elyse, opening September 14 in conjunction with 2nd Friday Art Walk, and continuing through November 2.

buy tickets 

Kyshona Armstrong, a music therapist gone rogue, began her career working in mental health hospitals and correctional facilities, writing music with her patients and using music to redirect behaviors and emotions. Kyshona soon found the need to write music independently to help her process her daily experiences with her clients. Audiences will often find a common thread of overcoming, hope, and empowerment in her songwriting and storytelling. She uses her emotional intelligence to create her unique bluesy and soulful style of music. Her latest album, "The Ride", shows off vocal stylings that are reminiscent of Aretha Franklin, Etta James and Al Green.

She has exhibited extensively, is in many notable collections and has won numerous awards.

Winter Wind Concert - The Suitcase Junket

buy tickets 

Matt Lorenz [The Suitcase Junket] was raised in Cavendish, Vermont. He learned to sing by copying his sister Kate. Lorenz graduated from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 2004, having taught himself to throat-sing, inspired by a South Indian cooking class. On moving day, he pulled a guitar, filled with mold and worse for wear, from a dorm dumpster. He fixed it up and started pulling songs out of it. That was the beginning. Since then, The Suitcase Junket has built a powerful fan base in his native New England and far beyond, playing numerous festivals and winning awards. His music puts him in the company of artists working the border of Americana and rock -- Shovels & Rope, M. Ward, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Sam Amidon, Alabama Shakes, and The Record Company.

Since 2013, Andrew Morris and Julie Bates, better known as the Matchsellers, have traveled the US and Europe developing their style of off the wall bluegrass & old-time music. In 2017 they began collaborating with Chad Graves and Betsey Mae, two of the Midwest’s finest musicians. (Graves is one of the country’s top dobro players and Mae is a sought after bassist from Lakin, KS.) Together the 4-piece combines absurdity, authenticity and excellent musicianship to create a performance that is representative of the present age: They are pleasantly stuck between the years gone-by and those to come.

The acoustic-duo, Ryanhood, featuring Cameron Hood’s rich and folky lead vocals and Ryan Green’s explosive guitar and mandolin riffs, together with their airtight vocal harmonies, prompted the Arizona Daily Star to call them, “a match made in radio heaven.” Ryanhood was named ‘Best Group/Duo’ in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards and they were recently named the “Discovery of the Year” by John Platt at WFUV New York City. They were a featured act at Australia’s National Folk Festival in April 2018. And their star is still on the rise. Their sixth and newest album, Yearbook, is led by their signature two-part vocal harmonies, decorated with flares of guitar, ukulele, and mandolin, and centers on songs about being young, growing old, and making peace with the passing of time.

      

Winter Wind Concert - Seth Glier

Seth Glier’s fifth album, Birds, is the latest entry in a burgeoning career that has included a Grammy nomination and a pair of Independent Music Awards while touring with artists including Ani DiFranco and Ryan Adams. The songs on Birds range from personal to political, and are bound together by the awareness that our world is a fragile place that is all the more magical for it. Glier (pronounced “Gleer”) recorded Birds in an airy loft in western Massachusetts outfitted with a grand piano and floor-to-ceiling windows. Birds roosting just outside those windows, became his sympathetic audience while Glier made the album. “I felt a tremendous amount of comfort talking to the Birds,” he says “I’d check in with them regularly to see how they thought things were going so far.” Seth Glier was selected as the Member’s Choice Concert for Winter Wind by vote of Depot Members.

      

Winter Wind Concert - The Brother Brothers

“The Brother Brothers have been in this together for life, and their familial connection comes through in the music, harkening back to some of the greatest family harmonies ever made. They tour as an acoustic duo: David on cello and guitar, and Adam on the 5-string fiddle. With individual storied music careers under their belts, the brothers have finally teamed up to bring their experiences together. They approach their poignant and often charming songs with an almost startling sense of ease, and the tight harmonies are enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine. Often leaning towards the darker, moody elements of Appalachian folk, and bluegrass traditions, their songs are laden with near perfect sibling harmonies or unison singing, compelling writing, and imaginative arrangements.
