This evening celebrates individual artists who have enhanced our community through their talents and creativity. Kristin Pluhacek and Dan McCarthy will perform.
Kristin lives and works in Omaha, Nebraska. Her drawings and paintings have been exhibited extensively in midwestern fine arts galleries and museums. Her work is represented in numerous public and private collections. She is the illustrator for the book “Send Me Tulips”, recently published by Prisma Press Educational Enrichment and was the featured artist/illustrator for the 2007 Summer Arts Festival. She has participated in numerous public art projects and led many project workshops.
Dan McCarthy is a piano player and songwriter from Omaha. He has been playing weekly at Pageturners Lounge since it opened in 2012, focusing on classic (early 20th-century) ragtime, and the music of Scott Joplin in particular. He has released five albums of original songs with his band, McCarthy Trenching, in the last ten years. He and his musical partner, James Maakestad on upright bass, have accompanied three silent films at Film Streams, with a mix of classic ragtime and original compositions. He will be joined by special guest artist, Luke Annis on trombone.
