CWC-South joins with Imagination Lab, Bishop, CA, for museum benefit on Sunday, October 27, 2019
With the assistance of a small grant from the Southern Region of the California Writers Club (CWC-South), the Imagination Lab in Bishop, CA, invites the public to a fundraising party on Sunday, October 27, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The event will explore and hope to benefit the idea of a new museum or annex to a local museum for High Sierra or Eastern California Artists–poets, painters, potters, photographers, sculptors, jewelry makers, woodworkers, and more.
Entertainers/presenters include Marilyn Blake Philip, educator, journalist, author, and member of the Eastside Writing Circle; Donna McCrohan Rosenthal, journalist, columnist, author, and president of the statewide CWC; Jennifer Crittenden, publisher (Whistling Rabbit Press) and award-winning author; and Fiddlin’ Pete Watercott, who with lifelong friend and fellow songwriter Larry Long, has traveled extensively throughout the U.S., hitchhiking, hopping freights, and in the mid-seventies rolling along in the Lone Prairie Schooner and the Red Caboose. Adding Neil Gelvin and Dale Cannon, they formed the group “Nevada Swing,” and embarked on a bi-centennial North American tour. In recent years, Pete has frequently performed at the Woody Guthrie Festival in Okemah, OK; the Elko National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, and the Millpond Music Festival, Larry Fest in Wisconsin, and the Minneapolis Monarch Festival.
Festivities unfold with “all this and goodies to eat also!” at 621 West Line, Bishop. For details: 60-872-2446.
