Jake Shimabukuro


Sunday, February 7, 2016
7 pm at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium

In his young career, ukulele wizard Jake Shimabukuro has already redeined a heretofore under-the-radar instrument, been declared a musical "hero" by Rolling Stone, wowed audiences on TV (Jimmy Kimmel, Conan), earned comparisons to Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, and even played in front of the Queen of England. A Hawaiian superstar, Jake's performances combine the qualities of a long line of virtuoso ukulele players with modern rock musicians to create a sound that is uniquely his own but still firmly grounded in tradition.

Kodiak Crab Festival Art Show presented by Dancing Salmon Artists

Dancing Salmon Artists invites submissions of original, creative works of art to the Annual Crab Festival Art Show.  Artwork can be submitted on Thursday, May 21 between 6 pm and 7:30 pm at the Harbor Room of the Kodiak Inn in downtown Kodiak.  The opening reception for the show will be Friday, May 22, from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm in the Harbor Room.  The show remains open for public viewing and purchasing throughout the Crab Festival weekend.

Rules for Submitting Artwork:
All artwork should be original, creative, and not previously shown. Entries must be delivered suitably finished and ready for display: all paper and canvas flat work must be matted and framed; works of sculpture and ceramics must be ready for display; weaving or quilts must be ready to hang; jewelry must be displayed in a holder or other display apparatus.

Reproduced prints of original paintings or drawings, matted-only items, or shrink-wrapped pieces will not be accepted.

All artwork should be packaged as best as possible to protect against damage.  The Dancing Salmon cannot assume responsibility for lost or stolen pieces, fire, theft, "inherent vice" attributable to construction techniques or materials, or the minor wear resulting from normal handling.

A limit of four (4) original pieces of art will be accepted from any one artist.  Dancing Salmon Members retain the right to submit more.  The entry fee is $25, payable at time of delivery of artwork.  The Art Show Board reserves the right to edit entries if space becomes limited.

Each artist must fill out the entry form and separate labels for each piece of work.  The Art Show Board will label artwork and a receipt for work will be given on acceptance.  Stickers on work or self-made labels will not be accepted.

Copies of these guidelines and entry forms for the art show are available from the literature racks outside the Kodiak Arts Council office (inside the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium foyer), or from the Kodiak Public Library.
