Ketchikan celebrates “The Art of Being a Woman”

 

Dave Rubin and Sharolyn Kroscavage perform during Saturday’s musical celebration of “Passages: The Art of Being a Woman.”

A new show at the Ketchikan Area Arts and Humanities Council’s Main Street Gallery always is a reason for the community to celebrate, but the March show took celebrating to new levels this past weekend.

Dave Rubin and Joann Flora perform “The Girl From Ipanema” Saturday at Creekside Cabaret.

The three-day celebration for “Passages, the Art of Being a Woman” kicked off Friday with the gallery show opening, continued Saturday with a musical gala performance at Creekside Cabaret, and wrapped up on Sunday with a poetry reading at O’Brien’s Pub.

Here’s an audio postcard from the Saturday night performance:

The organizers of the show and celebration weekend are Diane Naab, Laurie Thomas, Amanda Painter and Maggie Freitag. The exhibit remains on display at Main Street Gallery through the end of the month.
