Nathan and The Zydeco Cha Chas

July 26

Join us for a live musical performance by Nathan and The Zydeco Cha Chas at the Bay Harbor Fest. 

Nathan Williams plays zydeco, the fast and furious accordion-driven dance music of the Creole people of South Louisiana, a relatively modern style that emerged after the Second World War. With its trademark rubboard percussion, electric guitars and R&B influences, zydeco is distinct from the fiddle-driven music of neighboring Cajuns.

Zydeco is now a familiar sound to many, heard in commercials for mainstream companies such as Burger King and Toyota, and there are pockets of devoted zydeco dancers throughout the world. Yet, after its flush of national popularity in the late 1980s, which saw soaring sales of both zydeco and Cajun CDs, zydeco has in many ways faded from popular consciousness, retreating to the South Louisiana dance halls and festival gigs that sustained it all along.

June Ward: Passages and Possibilities

Gulfport, Mississippi artist June Ward is inspired by beauty and color. After studying drawing and art history at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas, she continued with other learning venues and private instruction, exploring forms of creative expression. In 2009, Ward was juried into membership of Oil Painters of America and is a member of Women Painters of the Southeast. She serves as a Regional Director for The National Museum for Women in the Arts in Washington, DC. Passages and Possibilities follows Ward's passages through life as she searched for her artistic voice, open to all possibilities. Her art follows the cycle of the seasons in still life, landscape and figurative works. Flowers in her still life paintings show the natural progression of time with blooms at their peak, fading flowers and seeds signifying the repeating cycle. Her landscapes, which often include figurative elements, speak of the passage of time in different geographical locations. The overriding theme throughout all these categories is the emphasis of light, in an intimate setting accented with Ward's hand painted furniture.

Micheal Mabry: Revelations & Revelry

Micheal Mabry is originally from Clarksdale in the Mississippi Delta region, an agricultural center that is one of the richest cotton-growing areas in the United States. Clarksdale has been significant in the history of the blues, which has become a theme in many of Mabry's works. Growing up in the country provided Mabry with innumerable subjects to paint. Many of his works depict people of his community engaged in playing music, dancing, playing games, and basically enjoying life together in front of the backdrop of a blues joint or café. His use of bright colors, often using primary colors as the focal point in his juke joint scenes, conveys fun and community spirit. Mabry's wildlife imagery, on the other hand, conveys a sense of realism, showing the versatility of the artist. The focal point of the exhibition is Eye of the Last Days, a large book (33" x 23") that took Mabry over eight years to complete. The cover, which contains an eye that opens and closes, is made of several types of tree bark collected by the artist. Different pages of the 75-page book will be revealed each day.
