Arts and Jazz event scheduled for next week
The annual Arts and Jazz event is scheduled for Saturday, February 7 at the Blaine Performing Arts Center (PAC).
This year�s event features a poster created by Blaine sophomore Emily Hendricks-Hockey, a student who is undergoing her second year of instruction with Brian Smith. The art piece which was selected for use as the poster for Arts and Jazz was a piece Hendricks-Hockey did for art class as an assignment on �Power and Authority.�
According to Leslee Smith of the Fine Arts Association, Hendricks-Hockey researched the subject utilizing books and pictures before beginning her assignment. The title of her piece is �Pricked by Heaven.�
Hendricks-Hockey says she loves doing artwork and it is a �passion� for her. Her inspirations are often political and religious subjects and she states, �There is a message behind what I create, not �oh it�s just pretty.��
The event will also feature music from several Blaine students, including Kit Schumann, Victoria King, Amanda Johansen and Mary Marshall. King, Johansen, and Marshall will perform in the all-state gala concert which will be held February 16 in the Sundome in Yakima.
Arts and Jazz will run from 7-11 p.m. at the PAC. Admission is $5 per person. For more information call 332-6045.
