The Guttenberg Gallery & Creative Center in Guttenberg, is proud to introduce its summer Music + Art Summer Series. An artist reception for painter Jenna Lueck will be held on Sunday, July 15th from 1-3 P.M. While you relax and listen to live music by Bruce Bryant in the Courtyard, enjoy refreshments. Courtyard Café will offer beverages, wine, grilled food, and ice-cream treats.
Jenna Lueck, who is raising a family in Sherrill, grew up on a dairy farm in the hills of Northeast Iowa and always appreciated the beauty of this area. Lueck's work illustrates her love for landscapes of Clayton County. “My first series is ‘Eastern Iowa’ series-the farms, landscapes, and the fog on the river that I always loved seeing as I rode the bus to school,” says Lueck. Enjoy the eight paintings in this series when they premier Monday, July 2nd (through July 27th) at Guttenberg Gallery & Creativity Center in Guttenberg. “Whether it is a vacation you were on or the countryside where you grew up, I hope my art brings wonderful feeling to your heart and intrigues you. I hope it pulls you in and allows you to ‘get lost’ for a moment or two,” says Lueck.
Bruce Bryant’s solo act, known as Carpe Diem, blends tunes you have heard with tunes you haven’t. Performances range from Cat Stevens to The Beatles, and others. Bryant also includes original songs and his characteristic vocals and acoustic guitar are accompanied by the recent addition of a drum kit. Weather permitting, this outdoor courtyard performance should be just what you need to unwind.
