Tom Snow

BROWNFIELD, MAINE – Tom Snow (piano) and Ralph Norris (saxophone)
A Socially Distanced Show for 50 People

Hooray! We are welcoming back our friend, pianist Tom Snow, to once again bring the sweet sounds of jazz to SMAC. For over thirty years, Tom has played piano with countless magnificent musicians. He’s one of “those guys” who can comfortably carouse in the circles of jazz, folk, classical, and rock. Of course many you also know him as a constant sidekick and accompanist for Jonathan Edwards. On this night, Tom is bringing as an extra special treat, long time friend and veteran saxophonist, Ralph Norris. Ralph’s sublime tone and gorgeous phrasing are the envy of many and we are proud to have him in out great state along with Tom. A great night of jazz music with Tom and his honored iconic guest.

Wildquack Duck Race & Music Festival

JACKSON NH – Due to the Covid-19 virus we have had to reschedule our Duck Race & Music Festival.  This year we plan on giving our locals, visitors, friends and family a fun filled weekend celebrating our move toward re-opening with a weekend long Grand “Welcome Back” celebration.

The celebration starts on Friday night July 31st with Fireworks, then on Saturday, August 1st from 10 AM until 3 PM we will be hosting the annual Wildquack Duck Race & Music Festival.  Things maybe a little different as the Wildcat River maybe too low for the ducks to swim but we will figure out how it will all go as we get closer to the event.

You can expect food vendors, kids games, fun for the entire family… lots of prizes and just celebrating being together.  For more information please visit our website.

Jackson Art Studio

JACKSON NH – Outdoors @Jackson Art Studio – With Award winning painter, George Van Hook
Ridge Rd, Jackson NH

In this weekend  portrait painting workshop, students will first start by drawing the head to understand the structure and form. The model will be set up outdoors and we will be combining the natural environment with the portrait and natural light. (outdoor tents will be set up if needed) We will investigate the specifics of individual features. After lunch, participants will paint the head in their chosen medium using a limited palette of primary colors.  The focus of this will be creating a recognizable form.

George will teach in a loose impressionist style through demonstration and individual coaching. On the second day, students will again begin with drawing and creating a limited palette study. After lunch, we will spend the afternoon doing a full color portrait bringing all that we learned into play. This workshop is for those with some familiarity with painting but all levels are welcome and all mediums appropriate including oils, watercolors, pastels and acrylics. Students are required to bring their own supplies. Class size will be kept small for individual attention.
