First Friday: Lika Gitis & Half Pelican
May 3 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Every first Friday of the month we celebrate art and music with the community. The artist is onsite with her freshly displayed works (5-9pm), and music keeps the energy level high (6-8pm).
About the Artist:
Lika Gitis is mainly showing her body of work called REFLECTIONS – paintings of mountains reflecting in water. “We just have to reflect and see beyond the objects, so we can see through, inside, and out.” Lika creates paintings and pattern designs to make things and spaces look positive, colorful, and joyful. Her kid’s art studio, Sunflower Art Studio, gives her inspiration in the creative realm. Her under 12 year old student have taught her how to stay true to herself while staying open to the world.
About the Music:
Half Pelican is a well-known Colorado duo, especially when you see them skiing to their gigs with fiddle and cello a-playing. Half Pelican plays cosmic acoustic groovy music inspired by Appalachian, Celtic, and Pr- Historic music. The couple, Andy Reiner (Whitewater Ramble) and Dr. Joy Adams (Professor of Music), have dialed in dynamic compositions and fill the sound with different instrumental combinations. When Half Pelican isn’t on road, they play with Daryl Anger, teach music camps around the country, instruct at Naropa University, tour with other bands, or play studio sessions.
