Urban Ghetto Art, Unique Batik, Stolen Sweets, Airs Jan. 28
Posted January 18, 2010
Chris Haberman is a prolific artist whose style has been described as urban ghetto, but the appeal seems to be universal. A self-described poet, musician and arts activist, his works reflect his passions and his life. Tune in to OREGON ART BEAT on Thursday, January 28 at 8pm for a look at the results of inspiration that comes from comic books, curbside discards and pop culture.
Jennifer Doheny is the first batik artist featured on ART BEAT. Her batik is fun, creative and unique. She works with wax, paper and dyes to create beautiful wall hangings, curtains, and lamps. But doesn't stop at batik. She also has a thriving greeting card business. And it's no telling where her inspiration will take her next.
The high-energy shows of The Stolen Sweets feature seamless harmonies, top-notch players and infectious dance songs from yesteryear. ART BEAT joins this band for a spirited and sassy tribute to 1930s-era vocal jazz. Tune in to see why people of all ages are flocking to see this band light up a room with their vintage sound.
ART BEAT repeats Sundays at 1am and 6pm. You can watch entire ART BEAT broadcasts at watch.opb.org. Video of the stories featured on ART BEAT can be viewed online immediately following the broadcast at opb.org/programs/artbeat.
