CULTURAL ART EXPO DRAWS TOP-NOTCH ARTISTS; MARRIOTT AIMS TO EXPAND EXPO AND CREATE AN ANNUAL EVENT

By Miriam Raftery

November 17, 2019 (El Cajon) – Art aficionados found plenty to appreciate at the Cultural Art Expo held Nov. 9 at the Marriott in El Cajon.  Proceeds benefited the East County Arts Association, which had members in a broad range of visual arts at the event, which also featured internationally acclaimed sculptor Enrique Avilez, local authors, live music, wine and beer tasting, art workshops and a fitness workout.

“It was the perfect storm,” Avilez (photo, left), a former fisherman, says of the life-altering event that inspired him to take up artwork as a career. Aboard a fishing vessel off his native Mexico battered by stormy seas, Avilez made a promise to pursue his passions if he survived the ordeal. His works reflect the materials of Baja beaches  and communities where he grew up – utilizing native clays, seashells, coral, wood and more.

Review by Caley Hernandez
 
October 21, 2019 (La Mesa) --The Highland Players of Helix High School treated their peers and the public to the well-known musical The Sound of Music over the past couple of weekends.  In this classical masterpiece, put on by high school students under the direction of Paul Reams, it is clear that these performers know how to work as professionals!  The casting choices were stellar, and all who were involved in the show appeared to have enjoyed their time working both on the show and with one another.

SAME TIME NEXT YEAR: TIMELESS ROMANCE

Review by Kathy Carpenter

Reviewer for www.sdtheatrereviews.com

October 7, 2019 (Poway) - I term this play a romantic fantasy. Who doesn't have one? This is the classic love outside the constricts of everyday life--a couple who meet once a year for a romantic tryst. Although they do bring into the relationships stories of their families and lives since the last time they meet, they aren't with each other to live the everyday pressures and problems of real life.

EL CAJON COUNCIL MOVES TO END COMMISSIONS ON ARTS AND CULTURE, HUMAN RELATIONS AND VETERANS

 

Update Sept. 27, 2019 -- Estela de Los Rios,  a community leader who plans to run for El Cajon City Council, sent these comments objecting to the demise of the commissions.  "I believe it our right as citizens of El Cajon to have these board commissions and have them open until we seek people to serve on them. There has to be a better way to recruit. This is a prime example of the city council's actions that need to change for the best interest of our city. It makes no sense to have a Magnolia Performing Center but no Arts Commission?"

 

By Miriam Raftery

 

September 23, 2019 (El Cajon) – The agenda for tomorrow’s El Cajon City Council meeting includes second reading and adoption of a code amendment to eliminate three city entities  The Veterans’ Commission, the Commission on Arts and Culture, and the Human Relations Commission, which advises the council on diversity issues.
