The BBC’s 17th Anniversary Celebration Continues

Geoff Achison & The Soul Diggers
Friday April 26th @ 9:00pm

Geoff Achison & The Soul Diggers return from Down Under to kick off their Spring, U.S. tour and their only Florida appearance Friday at the BBC!

This phenomenal guitarist, singer, songwriter and performer has found a home at the BBC in his annual walkabouts to the States. Geoff is an electric and acoustic blues guitarist with a distinctive, gritty and soulful voice. His live shows are energetic, combining contemporary blues and jazz with some mighty fine guitar play–solid, clean, and unique. His versatility earned Geoff the honor as a guest instructor at Jorma Kaukonen’s Fur Peace Ranch guitar camp for more than 10 years.

His acclaim spans the globe:

“Geoff is one of the finest blues guitarists I know with a completely individual style.” ~Jorma Kaukonen, Jefferson Airplane/Hot Tuna”

“Make sure you never, ever miss an opportunity to see Geoff Achison ‘live’” ~Ron Currens Hittin’ The Note

“Geoff Achison is simply a phenomenal guitarist, great singer, and a riveting live performer.” Cranleigh Arts Center flyer, Surrey UK.

“Achison has been hailed as one of the finest blues players in Australia” ~Ian McFarlane Encyclopedia of Australian Rock and Pop

“Part New Orleans funk, hard blues and soul – they are all done impeccably.” — Rob Dickens, Listening Through The Lens AU

Geoff is backed up by some amazing muscians with Yonrico Scott on drums and Bryan Hall on bass adding a soulful, funky punch to the mix.

From the outback to the boondocks, this is a show you deserve to see!

LESLIE WALLACE-COON SCULPTURE @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Apr 27 all-day
LESLIE WALLACE-COON SCULPTURE @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum

Leslie Wallace-Coon takes inspiration from everyday life, of the visible world of people, animals, and her surroundings. Her sculptures and bas-reliefs tell stories of the humorous contractions and extremes of relationships she witnesses between people and their pets. Domestic animals are an inspiration because of the humorous, physical, and “superimposed” human characteristics she sees in them. Her goal as an artist is to create work that compels the viewer to look, laugh, and become caught up the details. Wallace-Coon has work in public and private collections in the region and owns the Bowery Art Gallery in Apalachicola.
Exhibition admission: $10 for nonmember adults (includes 6 exhibitions); free for Gadsden Arts Center & Museum members, free for children ages 17 and under. Exhibition admission-free days: March 2 / April 6 / May 4

Norman Rockwell in the 1960s @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Apr 27 all-day

The Gadsden Arts Center & Museum is pleased to host Norman Rockwell in the 1960s, an exhibition of prints organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, focusing on illustrations he created for magazines during that turbulent decade. In 1963, the artist ended his almost 5 decade-long association with The Saturday Evening Post and began to search for new artistic challenges. Rockwell left behind his beloved story-telling scenes popular in the Post and threw himself into the visual documentation of social issues and current events like school integration, the moon landing, and the murder of civil rights workers.
Exhibition admission: $10 for nonmember adults (includes 6 exhibitions); free for Gadsden Arts Center & Museum members, free for children ages 17 and under. Exhibition admission-free days: March 2 / April 6 / May 4
