Sandi Whetzel's art will be featured at the Vancouver Wine & Jazz Festival August 24-26, 2012 at Esther Short Park, 8th & Columbia streets in Vancouver, WA.

I'm not a jazz connoisseur, but I am pumped up about hearing Jose  Feliciano and the musical group WAR at this new venue for showing my art. Remember, WAR was famous for "Why Can't We Be Friends?", "Low Rider", "Cisco Kid", "Spill the Wine" and many more hits. That's part of Friday evening's line-up. And Sunday evening Jose Feliciano, one of the greatest guitar players on the planet, performs. 

If you are planning a visit to the area, this should be a fun event to attend. Besides wine and great food and all the art, they have quite a lineup of musical entertainment slated over the the three day event. You can hear a mix of fusion, contemporary and jazz classics; incredible blues--ranging from rock-infused music to southern "New Orleans" style genres; and Latin jazz...so here it is: WAR, (Friday night), Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers, The Brubeck Brothers Jazz Quartet, Yellowjackets, The Rippingtons, Marcia Ball, Diane Schuur, and the legendary Jose Feliciano, (Sunday night).  Seven other regional jazz groups will perform throughout the weekend. You can view the performance schedule, directions and ticket information here 

If you plan a visit to the area that weekend and take in the festival, please find my booth and stop in to say "hi". I'm hoping to have my most recent painting of a girl in a wine bottle looking up toward the man who's hand is reaching for the wine bottle; waiting patiently to see if he will liberate her from her confines. I'm rushing back to my easel to work on it. Hope to see you soon.
