Saturday

 

 

 

Art Walk Livermore
Downtown Livermore will once again be filled with art lovers enjoying a day of art, music and shopping.

ArtWalk is a different sort of festival, as the streets are kept open and the works of over 150 artists are set-up throughout the downtown in and around parks, sidewalks, galleries, wine bars, restaurants, shops and the Bankhead Theater. This allows visitors and the local community to experience all that Livermore's wine country downtown has to offer with art as the theme for the day. Parking is free.

Art works range from contemporary to classical, abstract to realism, pottery to mixed media, handmade bags, ceramic garden art and jewelry, with subject matter from floral to figurative and much more.

The 2014 art banners that were hung as street art were, in many visitors' opinion, the best overall ArtWalk Art Banner show so far. On ArtWalk day, Visitors to the Livermore Valley Plaza examined them up close and placed bids at the Art Banner Silent Auction.

Special art destination offerings for 2014 included the reception for Connections III, an exhibition of art works by alumni of CSUEB at the Bankhead Theater, open studios at the popular Firehouse Art Studios and Bothwell's Downtown Art Studios, and a community CD art display at Panama Red.

ArtWalk also provided free space for the Empty Bowl Project, part of a worldwide effort to help feed the hungry, with well over 100 ceramic bowls created and sold by local teens to help support Open Heart Kitchen; the high school and district-wide art show; and an annual exhibit from the Disabled Veteran's Painting Program, a year-round, all-volunteer art program led by Charles "Bud" Donaldson. ArtWalk also provided discounted booth space to worthy nonprofits such as Shakespeare's Associates; Ruraq Maki, Hands that Create, a group dedicated to raising funds for women in third-world countries by selling their handmade wares; and Cheza Nami, a group that promotes cultural diversity in the community.

Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody and Heather Masse’s three distinct voices combine in achingly-perfect harmonies, creating some of the most exciting and exquisite music on the folk-roots scene.

Alex Filippenko
Astrophysicist Alex Filippenko will explain why black holes are no longer confined to the fertile imaginations of science fiction writers and theoretical physicists. Dr. Filippenko is an award-winning professor of astronomy at University of California, Berkeley. Black holes are regions of space where gravity is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape. Stellar-­-mass black holes can form during the deaths of some types of massive stars, and supermassive black holes are found at the centers of galaxies. Come learn about the remarkable properties of these bizarre objects.

Paula Poundstone
It’s impossible to attend a Paula Poundstone performance without marveling at her ability to interact spontaneously with the crowd. Her wry observations spark impromptu dialogue and guarantee riotous laughter. Armed with nothing but a stool, a microphone and a can of Diet Pepsi, Poundstone can find the hilarious angle of almost any subject, from the absurdity of the political world to the deviousness of housecats, and deliver it with a casual air, impeccable timing and razor-sharp wit.
