Award-winning instrumentalist/vocalist/bandleader Cynthia Sayer is acclaimed by musicians, critics and fans alike as one of the top 4-string jazz banjoists in the world today. Praised for her "drive and virtuosity" by the New York Times, Cynthia enchants audiences with her electrifying, swing-based performances and captivating stage presence.

Cynthia first rose to international prominence as a founding member of Woody Allen's New Orleans Jazz Band, all the while exploring her wider musical interests and playing with legendary artists such as Bucky Pizzarelli, Dick Hyman, Les Paul, Marvin Hamlisch, Wynton Marsalis, Wycliffe Gordon and Anat Cohen. This series is funded in part by a Community Arts Grant from the City of Carlsbad's Cultural Arts Office.

Sandy Swirnoff

Mar 22 - Jun 4, 2017

Sandy Swirnoff began creating knotted fiber jewelry in the early 1990s. Working with antique glass shards from the famed companies of Peynaud, Daum, Galle and Tiffany, she creates unique works of art that merge old with new. Swirnoff builds a custom beaded bezel and mount for each irregularly shaped glass piece and combines it with various beads. Her knotting process, a refined form of macramé, is delicate in approach yet often three-dimensional. This exhibition features approximately 30 necklaces that reveal the artist’s passion for nature, color, and texture, and will be accompanied by an 80-page publication.
