The Art of the Brick®

July 10 - September 13, 2015
Coming to the Tyler Museum of Art as its first Texas stop on its national tour since 2010, The Art of the Brick® is a stunning exhibition featuring more than 25 works painstakingly sculpted out of LEGO® bricks by acclaimed artist Nathan Sawaya.

From Sawaya's artist statement:On and off, I intentionally intermix subject matter that is steeped in heavy sentiment with the lighthearted and whimsical. The purpose of this is two-fold. I realize families and children are drawn to my art because of the unique medium in which it was created and I welcome that. But it is also a necessary break for me to create whimsy in addition to the construction of the complex human forms.

The Derailers
Aug. 14 at 8 p.m.
Tickets $20 floor, $15 balcony and VIP boxes are $125 (seat 4)
 In a career that has given rise to more than a decadeʼs worth of fine-tuned, highly anticipated and wonderfully received music, the Derailers continue to build the relationship between song, listener and dance floor. Each album has been a mix of well-crafted original songs and cover songs so thoughtfully chosen and so representative of the band, fans think they are as original as the band themselves. Challenged by their fans to create a sound that mirrors the shuffle of happy boots on a hardwood floor, the Derailers have fed the hungry dancehall crowds with their classic country beats and a 60s pop sensibility. Fans continue to show their appreciation and admiration with requests for encores long after the last drink has been served.
In terms of sound, the Derailers have gotten smoother with age. As Hofeldt puts it, “I think we have retained the path we are going for. But we have certainly grown as players and allowed other influences to come in.” Their music celebrates the legacies of Buck Owens, George Jones, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Charlie Rich and the Beatles, while still being on the edge of todayʼs country music. Hofeldt describes his view of country music as, “finding out what love really is, versus what you thought it was when you were a kid.” For all the fans of the Derailers, love is all you need. www.derailers.com

Gloria (2013)
Aug. 20 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $7
 After 12 years of being single, Gloria meets a nervous but loving man, Rodolpho. He's recently divorced and still largely involved in the lives of his ex-wife and their two daughters. Can Gloria, who's children are fiercely independent and whose only real relationship seems to be with her maid, overlook this gentleman's problems and find happiness? Paulina Garcia is so candid in her acting that at times you will be shocked that this is not a documentary. At times sad and at times happy, but never melodramatic or hysterical, "Gloria" takes a mature and beautiful
look at single life after 50.
Her scenes with her children highlight her role in their lives - she is free of their dependency. The one scene in which the couple's children are together at a birthday party gives the audience so much. Needless to say, the tension and energy created when Rodolpho comes face to face with the competitors for her affection is incredible and destructive and so very, very real.
The film contains some serious sex scenes between two middle aged people entering old age. Finally, you probably won't see a more euphoric end to a film. When Gloria gets up to dance to the disco stormer of the 80s named after her, you'll be hard pressed not to join in.

Kimberly Jim (1963)
August 21 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $7

 The story tells of a ramblin', gamblin', guitar-strummin' man from Dixie, trying to strike it rich in the Kimberley Diamond region. Accompanying him is his mischievous side-kick - a man with a song in his heart and four aces up his sleeve.


Dear White People (2014)
August 27 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $7
 A social satire that follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where controversy breaks out over a popular but offensive black-face party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in acutely-not-post-racial America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world.
And in the first part of September
 Comedy!!
Card 53 Show
Sept. 12 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $12
 Card 53 Comedy is a short form improv comedy troupe located in Tyler, TX.  The group was
started in 2009 by co-founders Aaron Smith and Jamey Whitley. The troupe’s chemistry and strong following has blown up since and have performed for Tyler Independent School District, Tyler Junior College, and Liberty Hall.
A typical Card 53 show consists of eight 3-5 minute sketches or “games” where the audience will be asked to give a suggestion such as a location, movie genre, or emotion. The actors will then make everything up on stage going off their instincts using props and costumes as needed.  Due to the unpredictable nature of the show, the actors strive very hard to provide a professionally clean show. Usually the appropriateness could be compared to a PG-13 movie rating. Join us for a fun date night adventure!
 A Festival for Tyler
 Welcome to the 5th Annual Art of Peace - Tyler, TX.  In just a short time,
our mini-festival has grown from an afternoon of programs to a two-week long series of peace-activities and programs throughout Tyler.

This is a community-wide event to celebrate the United Nations International Day of Peace and encourage community spirit.  The Art of Peace is based on a  similar annual festival that is held in Belton, Texas.  The aim of the Art of Peace - Tyler is to promote a spirit of cooperation and community through fellowship, dialogue, music, poetry, and art. 


The 5th Annual "Art Of Peace - Tyler" is a series of peace-themed events beginning

with the opening of a wonderful art exhibit at the Tyler Museum of Art on September 8th and lasting until the actual International Day of Peace on September 21st . Please view the programs listed in the tabs above, and click to get more information.  Mark these events in your calendars - and let's have another wonderful turnout celebrating Peace with our friends in East Texas.

Ruthie Foster in concert
ART of PEACE Festival
Sept. 19 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $20 online
$25 at the door
$150 for VIP Box seat - seats 4

This concert will be a collaboration with Liberty Hall and The Art of Peace Festival. We are excited to have Ruthie Foster as our performer. Those who have followed Ruthie Foster’s eclectic musical history know that she can burn down any stage with her combustible blend of soul, blues, rock, folk and gospel. Ruthie’s astonishing voice has taken her on an amazing ride. She came from humble church choir beginnings in rural Texas, followed by a tour of duty with the U.S. Navy Band, and ended up in Austin, Texas. Ruthie’s list of achievements include "Best Female Vocalist" in 2007, 2008 and 2013 from the Austin Music Awards, a 2012 and 2009 Grammy nomination for "Best Contemporary Blues Album", the 2010 Living Blues Music Award Critic’s Poll for "Female Blues Artist of the Year" and recent Blues Music Award wins for 2010 "Best Contemporary" and "Best Traditional Blues Female Artist of the Year".

Foster's newest release, "Promise of a Brand New Day," produced by Meshell Ndegeocello,has been honored by the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS) with her third straight GRAMMY nomination for 2015 "Best Blues Album".

 
Opening for Ruthie will be Ramoth-Gilead (Ray-Moth, Gil-EE-ad). Raymoth became interested in music at Van Jr. High school and played the tuba. After transferring to John Tyler High School in the 11th grade, Ramoth joined the orchestra and quickly learned to play cello and double bass. Later, Ramoth picked up a few other instruments, required courses, and a deeper respect for music and musicians of various genres. He graduated from Texas College with a B.S. in Music Education, but it wasn't until after college that he realized his God-given gift to write songs was something unique that he couldn't have learned from any institution.  Ramoth taught himself guitar in a matter of months and traveled the U.S. with his songs and a new dream --- to make a significant contribution to the music world with his own sound.

Ramoth-Gilead (the really bad) currently performs all over the Ark-La-Tex. Ramoth's 2007 debut album, ATTRACTING A CROWD, is a live recorded performance which gives the listener an opportunity to hear why so many people are attracted to his clever way with words and his unique guitar style. For new music and updates, find him on Facebook.com/RamothGilead.

In Washington, however, Smith discovers many of the shortcomings of the political process as his earnest goal of a national boys' camp leads to a conflict with the state political boss, Jim Taylor. Taylor first tries to corrupt Smith and then later attempts to destroy Smith through a scandal.

Forrest Gump (1994)
July 16 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $7

 Forrest Gump is a simple man with a low I.Q. but good intentions. He is running through childhood with his best and only friend Jenny.

Forrest joins the army for service in Vietnam, finding new friends called Dan and Bubba, he wins medals, creates a famous shrimp fishing fleet, inspires people to jog, starts a ping-pong craze, creates the smiley face bumper sticker and meets several presidents. However, this is all irrelevant to Forrest who can only think of his childhood sweetheart Jenny. Who has messed up her life. Will Forrest get his happily ever after? We all root for Forrest because he is the complete reflection of someone making the most of the time he has on this earth.

 When Grace, Sophia and Hulda Quebe (Kway-bee) raise their fiddles and play, audiences marvel. When the girls sing their three-part harmony, audiences are blown away. The Quebe’s unique brand of music has taken the Americana music scene by storm. They perform a refreshing blend of swing, vintage country, bluegrass, jazz & swing standards, and Texas style fiddling.
Awarded the "Crescendo Award," by the Western Music Association and winner of the "Western Swing Album of the Year" from the Academy of Western Artists, the Quebe Sisters have released their latest album, "Every Which-A-Way".
Performance highlights include appearances at the Grand Ole Opry, the Kennedy Center, NYC's Lincoln Center, "The Marty Stuart Show", "The Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree" and "The Smithsonian Folklife Festival".  "One thing is for sure, you don't see a group like the Quebe Sisters Band come along everyday," says Grand Ole Opry announcer Eddie Stubbs. "Give them your undivided attention and if you're not already, you too, will become a fan."

Their mother, Mrs. Ryan, is to receive all three of the grave telegrams on the same day. The United States Army Chief of Staff, George C. Marshall, is given an opportunity to alleviate some of her grief when he learns of a fourth brother, Private James Ryan, and decides to send out 8 men to find Sgt. Ryan and bring him home. This is the story of the men who are given this strange and dangerous mission. Is one man's life more valuable than another?

The Tyler Civic Theatre is doing productions this Summer!! We just missed Les Miserables ): but there are two the month of July --First  
July 3, 2015 - July 5, 2015
                      
 The Brothers Grimm "go Broadway" as Sondheim and Lapine offer up a cockeyed fairy tale in Into The Woods JR., an adaptation of one of Sondheim’s most popular works designed especially for young performers.
All of your favorite characters—Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk), and the Witch—meet and interact in this whimsical original story. The musical centers on a baker and his wife who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the king's festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and wind up changed forever.
With unforgettable roles, little dancing, and no chorus, Into The Woods JR. showcases a medium-sized ensemble of talented singers and actors. The sophisticated score has been adapted to make it easier – though still challenging –for young performers. Into The Woods JR. is a funny and engaging way to get young people to think about the stories with which they've grown up and the ethical issues raised therein.

July 23, 2015 - August 2, 2015
The Buddy Holly Story tells the true story of Buddy's meteoric rise to fame, from the moment in 1957 when 'That'll Be the Day' hit the airwaves until his tragic death less than two years later on "The Day the Music Died".
The show features over 20 of Buddy Holly's greatest hits including 'That'll Be the Day', 'Peggy Sue', 'Everyday', 'Oh Boy', 'Not Fade Away', 'Rave On' and 'Raining in My Heart', plus Ritchie Valens' 'La Bamba' and the Big Bopper's 'Chantilly Lace'.
The incredible legacy of the young man with glasses, whose musical career spanned an all-too-brief period during the golden days of rock & roll, continues to live on in Buddy.
Seen by over 22 million people around the world, Buddy will have you on your feet and "send you out of the theater on an unstoppable high" (The Boston Globe)
 Two Great and wonderful Restaurants in Tyler!!
 

There is a really great patio in Tyler-it is at a grocery store (of all places) called
FRESH BY BROOKSHIRES. This is a wonderful place to go for fireworks viewing!! They have live music on Friday and Saturday, too. Great food-beer and wine. Then at dark thirty the neighborhood just to the northeast does their fireworks display. It is perfect.

The next place we want to feature this time is 
A Destination Restaurant Come to Lago del Pino to experience all that makes Tyler’s destination restaurant an oasis in the countryside. From its spectacular private lake views and its distinctive fountain show, to its eclectic live music, relaxed dining, and fabulous wine list, you’ll quickly recognize all that makes dining at Lago del Pino more than just a memorable meal. Our chef
prepares a variety of traditional cuisine including fine steaks, pasta, one-of-a-kind burgers, gluten free options, and fresh seasonal vegetables and salads. 
They also have live music on the weekend and a fabulous patio. My bet is they will have fireworks over the lake on the 4th, although I can't find any info on this!

Canton First Monday is July 2-5 and in August July 30-August 2.
Hope this may help with your shopping plans-If you don't want to
brave the Summer heat stay in Tyler and visit the best antique mall in Texas.

302 East Locust St, Tyler Tx 75702   http://www.oldcitytyler.com/index.html

That place we remember when the present doesn't quite measure up to our expectations. Enjoy the nostalgia of days gone by with a pleasant visit to Ye Olde City Antique Mall where you can find those items that bring back precious memories.
     There has been an antique mall and/or flea market at the current location of Ye Olde City for decades.  Over the years, the property languished and lost much of its former charm.  In April 2007, the Powell brothers, Bert and Robert, acquired the property from the Swann Estate.  A lot of time and effort has gone in to restoring the property to its former self and to creating an atmosphere of "old world charm".
    Our Dealers add a nice warmth and friendliness to make your shopping experience a pleasant one.  We hope you enjoy the way that the mall flows.  New surprises lurk around every corner.  Hopefully, you will find whatever you want!
 
That's it for now -  come on and spend a night or two, or more!! at the Rosevine Inn Bed and Breakfast 
You can rest relax and follow our  motto::
   
 
One minute you are relaxing, the next you are playing, then you meet a new friend!
Return to your carefree days when your biggest worries were: When can we go out to play? When do we go to bed? What's for breakfast? 


 Bye till next time!!

We are so excited to wrap up the 2015 ETEX Comedy Festival with an amazing night of comedic genius! Our very own Brandon Davidson will be our host for the evening.  Davidson’s comedy is honest and super-duper adorable, just like him. His unusual perspective has earned him respect from his peers and and high fives from his kids. He is a regular Hyena’s Comedy Clubs, Backdoor Comedy and LMAO Paris. Brandon performs his comedy in colleges, clubs and bars across the South. He once used the bathroom next to former President Bill Clinton at a movie theater while watching the smash hit Encino Man. He'll be giving piggy back rides after
the show.

Jay Whitecotton is the product of a paranoid schizophrenic mother who thought aliens came down with British royalty to impregnate her, a manic depressive alcoholic father who would beat him in the middle of the night, and a brother who spent most of his life in jail possibly because Mom made him shoot a guy over a bad crack deal. BANANAS!
 He survived 5 years of homelessness, overcome many bad relationships, and decided to pursue his love of stand up comedy after the band didn't 'make it'.  By 2012, Jay was voted Reader’s Choice Best Local Comedian by the San Antonio Current and immediately moved to Austin, TX. Since then he’s been featured at many festivals including The Limestone Comedy Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Hell Yes! Comedy Fest, The Cape Fear Comedy Festival, and Punk Rock & Bowling Las Vegas. In 2015, Whitecotton did his second tour sponsored by Doug Stanhope’s Celebrity Death Pool and signed a record deal with Stand Up! Records. His debut album will be released later this year.” 

Lauren Davis is a comedian, writer, actor, and all-around weirdo. She can be seen performing weekly at Dallas Comedy House with her improv troupes "Funny Scenez," "LYLAS," and

"Please Like Us," as well as her sketch group "Fraud City." She does stand-up mostly at bar shows but sometimes hosts at the Hyena's Comedy Nightclubs in Dallas and Fort Worth. If you're REALLY into stand-up, check out her online video interviews with local comics, "Comedians in Bars Drinking Alcohol". Lauren's other hobbies are being poor and trying her hardest.  Dan St. Germain is from New York and has performed stand up on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and the “College Humor Live” National Tour. St. Germain has also appeared on MTV’s “World of Jenks” and is a 2009 ECNY nominee for “Best Emerging Comic”.

He and Mike Lawrence are producers of “Auld Lanxiety”, a show that features the worst jokes in New York City. Lately, St. Germain has been featured on Sirius XM Radio and the wildly popular “WTF” with Marc Maron podcast.

 George Lawton (Grandpa) has finally been convinced by his two grandchildren to move out of his large home and into a retirement center. Having lost his beloved wife a few years ago, the home is too much for George to handle. He reluctantly agrees. All of his items have been moved out, except those in his attic. Unbeknownst to him, his grandchildren have invited his former barbershop chorus members to come help him move. Bringing out item after item not only brings back memories, but also songs by his former barbershop buddies. The memories are funny, inspiring, and touching, as George is able to recall and talk about many memories of his life.

This is a feel-good story for all ages and one that will touch the hearts and lives of many. Looking back over our lives is both a joyous and, sometimes painful process to which we all can relate.
 Please come and join the East Texas Men In Harmony as they present Grandpa’s Attic on June 20th at the Robert E. Lee High School Fine Arts Center at 2:30 pm and 7 pm. Tickets click here

After time away, Mildred returns to find Veda singing in a cheap club. Veda will return only if Mildred promises luxury, so Mildred agrees to marry Monte in exchange for a third of her businesses.

Welcome to Sky Ranch 

 In 1955 Sky Ranch opened its gates for the first time to let campers come and experience our

signature program of fun, fellowship and discipleship. Starting with only 66 campers, Sky Ranch had already begun to fulfill the Brewers' dream of becoming a haven for kids to grow and learn separated from the worries of everyday life. As summers passed, the Sky Ranch program continued to influence the lives of children and soon became a tradition for families across Texas. In 1975, to better accommodate demand, Sky Ranch moved from its original location in Denton, TX, to its current location in Van, TX. To this day, Sky Ranch continues the legacy of Mel and Winkie Brewer by providing programs that enrich lives and build solid Christian character. Now holding facilities in

three states - Texas, Colorado and Oklahoma, Sky Ranch serves 60,000 individuals every year! In following our foundation of excellence, Sky Ranch strives to provide ministry opportunities for the whole family. From children's summer programs, SkyMoms ministry to mothers, family camps, school programs, retreat services, and more, Sky Ranch desires to be instrumental in the development of your family and the body of Christ as a whole. Although Mel and Winkie have gone to be with Jesus, their God vision lives on in the hearts of many and continues to impact lives for eternity. Mel continued to "tell the story" to all counselors during staff training until he left earth at 91 years old. For more info click http://skyranch.org/

Whatever Happened to Baby Jane (1962)
April 9 at 7 p.m.
 In a tale that redefines sibling rivalry, faded actresses Blanche and her sister, 'Baby' Jane Hudson live together. Jane was by far the most famous when she performed with their father in vaudeville but as they got older, it was Blanche who became the respected actress of their day, which Jane resents.


Blanche is now confined to a wheelchair - Jane ran her over with the car while drunk - and Jane is firmly in control of Blanche's destiny. As time goes by, Jane exercises greater and greater control over her sister, intercepting her letters and ensuring that few if anyone from the outside has any contact with her. As Jane slowly loses her mind, she torments her sister going to ever greater extremes.

Bette Davis won Best Oscar for her performance as "Baby" Jane Hudson.

Misery (1990)

To learn more about our Azalea & Spring Flower Trail

How it all began

While oil booms gave Tyler an economic head start in the 1930’s, azalea and rose blooms gave the city its beauty. Azaleas were introduced to Tyler in 1929 by Maurice Shamburger, one of the city’s early nurserymen. Pleased with results of a test garden of azaleas, Shamburger shipped the colorful plants here by the boxcar loads from Georgia.

After completing his garden in 1929, Shamburger discussed the beautification potential of azaleas with Mrs. Sara Butler of the Tyler Courier Times Telegraph. Mrs. Butler not only encouraged Shamburger to promote azalea plantings in the city, but planted a number of bushes at her own home on Charnwood St.
That home site, along with several other gardens on Lindsey Lane, soon became springtime showplaces with their colorful azalea blooms, and Tylerites began buying the plants by the thousands. Some of the thick, towering azaleas at older homes on the Trail date back to the ‘30’s and ‘40’s.
By 1960, the blooming azaleas were attracting much attention, and that year the Chamber of Commerce
established a marked route. The first Trail featured about 60 homes on a five-mile route.
The Trail was an instant success. Within two years it had expanded to 75 homes and was attracting 15,000 visitors. By 1964, 25,000 people a year were coming to see the azaleas. In 1986, it expanded to two miles and as of 2004; the Azalea Trail stretches eight miles and attracts over 100,000 visitors to Tyler.
The homeowners make the Trail the success it is. They regularly increase their azalea plantings and spend countless hours making sure their yards are spotless for the annual visitors.
The Trail has been featured in numerous newspapers and magazines, including Southern Living and Texas Highways, drawing visitors from all over America

Peter Gibbons works at Initech and hates his job. He also hates his abusive and annoying Division VP Bill Lumbergh and now the company has just hired consultants to help make cuts to downsize the company.

Peter's best friends are software engineers Michael Bolton and Samir Nagheenanajar, they also hate Initech. Peter's girlfriend is cheating on him, but she convinces Peter to visit a hypnotherapist to get some inspiration to be more ambitious. Peter tells the doctor how miserable his life is and goes under hypnosis. The hypnosis helps Peter - but not quite in the way he expected.

Peter no longer cares about his job, his cheating girlfriend or ripping off the company by  embezzling funds.

 Well I am not finding any real events in the area the weekend after Easter!!  My suggestion for that weekend is to book a room at the Rosevine Inn Bed and Breakfast and Extended Stay Suites. My bet is the spring flowers will be spectacular at that time-and no crowds!! The weather will be
perfect for time for MUCH relaxation at the Inn- The fires will be burning nightly and we will have one of our legendary breakfasts each morning. Come see us soon!!

  Until next time

It’s time to put our political differences aside and enjoy the musings of THE CAPITOL STEPS - the only group in America that attempts to be funnier than Congress! No elected official, including the current resident of the White House, or those who may aspire to it, is off limits. These former congressional and senate staffers satirize today’s political headlines, and political headline makers, with humorous song and dance. Always fresh and crisp – no two performances by THE CAPITOL STEPS are alike.    7:30 pm  

We talked about this in the last blog-and promised to mention it again-one of our favs in the area!

 

Within the boundaries of this 918-acre farm is a lesson of history, a sermon on the wonders of God's nature and much beauty for people to see.  Due to the hard work, patience and love of Mrs. Lee, for her God, her country and her fellowman, to be able to add to the beauty of nature for all to enjoy as much as she
did.
The garden opens, depending on Mother Nature, around the middle of February and remains open through March or until the daffodils are no longer in bloom. The garden's ability to open depends upon two things:
  • Road conditions- it is closed when the roads are wet.
  • The garden's future ability to remain open depends upon the number of people who visit and register their attendance.
The garden is open during this time seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m..  For Road Conditions and predicted blooming schedule, contact the Mrs. Lee's Daffodil Gardens directly at (903)845-5780 or email. 

 Mrs. Lee loved the land that her husband purchased so much that she bought  adjoining land until the ranch  amassed over 1,000 acres. She took this raw land and transformed it into a budding paradise; converting the gravel pits into a 5-acre lake and a 3-acre pond. Both of these were stocked with bass, perch, and catfish, while surrounded by abundant wildlife of all kinds, some of which were deer, wild turkey, all types of birds, snakes, and bobcats.  Mrs. Lee purchased an entire boxcar load of daffodil bulbs from Holland and they were all planted with approximately 40 workers, including Mrs. Carolyn Owens Johnson's grandparents, Mamie and Nathaniel Scott, whom worked for Mrs. Lee from 1952-1984.  Mrs. Johnson is the current manager of Mrs. Lee's Daffodil Gardens.

After a four year absence, one time detective Nick Charles (William Powell) returns to New York with his new wife Nora (Myrna Loy) and their dog, Asta. Nick re-connects with many of his old cronies, several of whom are eccentric characters, to say the least. He's also approached by Dorothy Wynant whose inventor father Clyde Wynant is suspected of murdering her step-mother. Wynant's father had left on a planned trip some months before and she has had no contact with him. Nick isn't all that keen on resuming his former profession but egged-on by wife Nora, who thinks this all very exciting, he agrees to help out. He solves the case, announcing the identity of the killer at a dinner party for all of the suspects.

Dave Alexander in concert
March 7 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $20 online and $25 at the door the night of the show (if not sold out)
VIP Boxes (seat 4) and are $150



Once you have seen Dave Alexander in concert it is easy to understand why he has been named "Entertainer Of The Year" by the Academy of Western Artists.

Throughout his successful and award winning career this dynamic entertainer has gained the respect of his peers while mesmerizing his audiences with each performance. His talents as a performer are unsurpassed as recently exemplified upon his induction in to the Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame and "Male Vocalist of The Year" by the Academy of Western Artists.

Dave has performed and recorded with the biggest names in country music such as George Strait, Toby Keith and LeAnn Rimes while carving out his own stellar career in the music industry. The three time GRAMMY nominee remains as one of the nation's top selling western artists.

Alexander has been recognized as having created the finest Western Big Band ever assembled to deliver his overwhelming performances. Great western musicians, combined with his incomparable horn section, make up the finest musical ensemble on the road today. As a former member of the Texas Playboys, Alexander combines the heritage and success of yesterday's great western music with the fever and excitement of his own compositions and today's hottest musicians. The results remain unprecedented.

He can be heard across the country on a nationally syndicated Radio Program as guest host of "The World of Western Swing". A new radio show currently sweeping the nation as it brings to life the fun and exciting sounds of Western Music. His latest feature film, "The Hi Low Country" includes music written, arranged and performed by Dave with such artists as Willie Nelson and Marty Stuart. This film later received a Western Heritage Award from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. Don't miss this amazing artist live at Liberty Hall!

Opening for them is another great East Texas Group! 
 Andie Kay Joyner and Heather Stalling of "Blacktop Gypsy".
 When they met in the early 1990's, both were already accomplished musician/vocalists. Stalling was an award winning fiddler, coming off a two-year run as a support player in Branson, MO. Joyner was still a teenager, but had sung in front of thousands of people at countless performances. Each had grown up in musical families that exposed them to bluegrass, folk, and traditional country music. For the next decade, the girls further groomed themselves for their own band by separately backing Texas artists, such as Mark David Manders, Max Stalling, Johnny Lee, Tommy Alverson, Bob Schneider, and others. The girls took a Tuesday night residency at the legendary Dallas honky-tonk, Adair's Saloon for almost a year. Stalling and Joyner even co-produced their debut CD, blacktopGYPSY, with Austin resident Adam Odor at famed Cedar Creek Studios. The album is a montage of styles representing the songwriters' varied influences and phases of musical interest. The traditional country material one might expect of a fiddler and country vocalist is certainly there. blacktopGYPSY released their second CD "Whirlwind" in September 2011 produced by the legendary Lloyd Maines

Most people have never heard of it...   yet those who have, believe it is a private paradise tucked away among the East Texas landscape. It is considered to be the best kept secret in East Texas. Mrs. Lee's Garden is a 816-acre tract of land that is drastically transformation every February and March. Each spring
the acreage becomes a golden haven of beauty. Millions of golden daffodils, scattered over approximately 28 acres, begin to bloom.  Visitors can see all the beauty by traveling along a four-mile trail that meanders around two lakes, between wooded valleys, and around a replica pioneer log cabin.  It is a sight that leaves visitors in absolute awe.
Within the boundaries of this 918-acre farm is a lesson of history, a sermon on the wonders of God's nature and much beauty for people to see.  Due to the hard work, patience and love of Mrs. Lee, for her God, her country and her fellowman, to be able to add to the beauty of nature for all to enjoy as much as she did.
The garden opens, depending on Mother Nature, around the middle of February and remains open through March or until the daffodils are no longer in bloom. The garden's ability to open depends upon two things:
  • Road conditions- it is closed when the roads are wet.
  • The garden's future ability to remain open depends upon the number of people who visit and register their attendance.
The garden is open during this time seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m..  For Road Conditions and predicted blooming schedule, contact the Mrs. Lee's Daffodil Gardens directly at (903)845-5780 or email. 
When visiting please respect the beauty that is offered for your enjoyment.  Please do not sit on, walk on or pick the daffodils.  Please do not litter while you are here.   Thank you!
We will feature this again on the next blog--It is a MUST SEE!!

 First Monday Trade days Again!! Yes at the end of February it is Feb 26 thru March 1! 
 T ALL BEGAN … in the 1850′s when the circuit judge stopped in Canton on the FIRST MONDAY of each month. This was the day the Judge held court. People from the area came to town on that day to conduct their business, stock their pantries and sit in on court proceedings … and watch a few “hangings”. History relates one incident where a man was hung for stealing his partner’s wagon of goods for trading. He is buried facing south (not east) in Hillcrest Cemetery by the First Monday grounds.

Quite naturally, many also brought their own goods, produce and livestock with them to sell or trade. This took place just off the west side of the courthouse square. Most history versions include the trading of wild hosrses, which were rounded up in the region and brought to Canton to sell.
By 1965, FIRST MONDAY had outgrown the Town Square, It was then that the City of Canton purchased six acres just two blocks north of the courthouse. FIRST MONDAY was moved off the square.
Originally, FIRST MONDAY only “happened” on the first Monday of each month. However, if you take a look NOW at the calendar, you will note that Monday has been excluded.
Even though the event goes from Thursday – Sunday, the name is now and will forever be known as: FIRST MONDAY TRADE DAYS.
  Well that about does it for now. This is by no means all that is going on-Tyler is full of live music venues all over town and there is so much more-
But in the meantime-don't forget to make your reservation soon-Valentines Day is coming up

Between the States &
The American Civil War's Impact on Tyler
through February 15, 2015
Between the States: Photographs of the American Civil War from the George Eastman House Collection commemorates the 150th anniversary of the war and highlights the photographic processes of the period. Because photography was in its infancy and could not capture the action of the war, artists such as Mathew Brady and James Gardner relied upon their artistic sensibilities to create stirring images that brought the graphic, sobering reality of the war home to the American public like never before.

The American Civil War’s Impact on Tyler highlights the home front and frames the war from the perspective of Smith County. The local community sent their sons and brothers to the front, guarded Union prisoners at Camp Ford and manufactured weapons at the Tyler ordnance works on the Square.

Together, these exhibitions will honor the heritage of those who served and tell the story of a community at war through photographs, maps and historical artifacts. The TMA is proud to collaborate with the Goodman-LeGrand House & Museum, Smith County Historical Society, the University of Texas at Tyler and several private collectors to increase awareness of the technological, scientific and human impact of the

Flow into the Mystic: Marriage and the Contemporary Artist
through February 1, 2015
The Lone Star State is home to phenomenal artists who create work that excites, challenges, and expands the minds of their audiences. Some of the most accomplished Texas artists live and work in East and North Texas. Just like the rest of us, they sometimes fall in love and marry.

When two artists marry, the art they produce either together or individually can be amusing or spiritual, vibrant or serene, but always connected in some way.

Flow into the Mystic features the work of six married couples – twelve artists who open their lives for us to share. The artists spotlighted are Jack and Vera Barnett, Gary and Daphne Hatcher, Sedrick and Letitia Huckaby, Benito Huerta and Janet Chaffee, Dewane and Alexis Serio Hughes, and James R. and Philana Oliphant Pace.

n 2009 Aaron Smith met Jamey Whitley in an acting class on the campus of The University of Texas at Tyler. Both were just trying to survive college while trying to figure out life. They quickly became friends - both were interested in theater but the program at UTT had recently disbanded. They started "Patriot Act" a student organization devoted to raising theater awareness on campus. This is where the art of improv comedy in their lives began. They instantly found a love and a desire to start their own troupe. Since then they have been performing all over East Texas and the Metroplex.
