A portrait of Willie Nelson by Beacon Falls artist Jack Lardis is being donated to the Willie Nelson Museum in Nashville, Tenn. After many meetings with Nelson and numerous studies, Lardis arrived at a dramatic profile of the iconic musician. In 2009, it was presented to Nelson, who liked it well enough to sign the back of the painting at Waterbury’s Palace Theater before a concert.
Lardis met Nelson in 1993 when he had an advertising agency and his client, Jose Cuervo, sponsored 100 “Willie and Family” concerts over a two-year period. The campaign required in-person approval by Nelson of all creative materials and Lardis came to know him and his daughter, Lana.
Recently Lardis donated the painting to the Willie Nelson Museum, where it will be on display with a wall of gold and platinum records and awards, photographs of his country music friends, a replica of his original tour bus, Honeysucke Rose, and other history and memorabilia.
The Oriental Theater in Denver is hosting a special event to celebrate the birthday of Colorado’s famous dancing painter, Keith ‘Scramble’ Campbell, next Saturday, September 6, 2014. The guy who people know as the guy who paints at Red Rocks is nationally recognized for his paintings ‘live and in concert’ because he actually attends concerts where he completes paintings during the course of a single performance.
The Oriental Theater is being transformed into a Scramble Wonderland. Filled with studio paintings that have rarely, if ever, been shown to the public. A feast for your eyes and ears!
We have a great and growing lineup for the night as well as some yummy eye candy! We’ll be rocking with the Dyrty Byrds Tori Pater & Eric Martinez, DPG Band, Johnny Barber (The Velvet Elvis) and finishing the evening with the ScrambleJam at the end of the night that is sure to bring in some special guest and surprises that we just don’t want to spoil.
Celebrate Good Times!!
Time: 9:00pm Day: Saturday Doors: 8:00pm Ages: 21+ Ages Price: $5
