• The Forget-Me-Nots

     

    The Ossining Arts Council (OAC) is pleased to present two area favorites, The Forget-Me-Nots with Special Guest David Ray. 

     

    The evening’s two sets will showcase a musical alliance between The Forget-Me-Nots and a favorite musical pal, David Ray.  Featuring bright, lush, hand-made harmony and acoustic instruments, The Forget-Me-Nots’ distinctive voices explore Linda Ronstadt, Motown, traditional folk, the Beatles, and hits from the 70s to today.  Varied original songs look at pivotal life moments, connections, changing circumstances, family, and serendipity.  A regular presence at Westchester community events and open mics, these three accomplished singer/performers blend their talents together to make music that celebrates life’s joys, determination and hope.  

     

    The Forget-Me-Nots will be joined by former New York City cab driver, bouncer, and actor, David Ray, whose deep well of “cinematic” songs incorporate both the blues and singer/songwriter tradition. David’s works have been sung by artists as varied as Grammy-winner Shawn Colvin and Dove Award winner Kathy Troccoli, and he’s shared the stage with Ossining’s own KJ Denhert, along with Roger McGuinn, Lucy Kaplanski, Marshall Crenshaw, Joan Osborne, Cliff Eberhardt, Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, and many more.

    CALL FOR PARTICIPATION TO ALL OAC MEMBERS

     

    Don’t suffer post-holiday blues! Use January to clear out your art studios of tools and materials you no longer need and sell (or trade) them at OAC’s Groundhog Sunday Sale & Swap Meet! Anything goes! Used items are welcome as long as they’re in decent condition. Brushes, Paints, Pastels, Paper, Canvases, Clay, Tools of All Kinds, Sandpaper—whatever you have that you think someone else might want will be fine. NO ART…just art supplies, folks. This is a GREAT opportunity to make room for ‘new’ supplies by eliminating ‘old’ ones. And…you might just find some great deals on items for yourself.

     

    Remember…one person’s trash might be someone else’s treasure! So go through your ‘art stuff’ and pull together your unwanted items. You can swap some items, if you like, or sell them for a bit of cash here and there. OAC won’t be taking any commission on sales—so the “take” will be all yours. ALL will be welcome to attend the event, but ONLY OAC Members can be vendors. The cost for a table space will be $5.
