Potter’s Throwdown
Jan 11 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Potter's Throwdown @ Bank of the Arts | New Bern | North Carolina | United States

Craven Arts Council and Religious Community Services are proud to present the Annual Potters’ Throwdown on January 11th, from 5pm to 8pm at the Bank of the Arts and Harrison Center in downtown New Bern. This annual event features potters racing to complete as many bowls as possible in one hour, education demonstrations, and culinary competitions, all in support of Empty Bowls New Bern.

Officially kicking off at 5:30pm, This year’s six potters will attempt to throw three hundred bowls in one hour, giving them less than one minute per bowl. Each potter will be assisted by a team of volunteers and sponsors from local businesses. The six potters for 2019 are Rich Daniels, Scott Haines, Shelly Mathiot, Melanie Waters, Lanny Pelletier, and Brent Wheelwright. All bowls created will later be fired and glazed to be donated to the Empty Bowls New Bern event on Februrary 28th. After the speed competition potters will demonstrate various throwing techniques and challenges to educate the public on the process of creating pottery.

At 6:30pm the Throwdown event will move two doors down to the Harrison Center, 311 Middle St. Middle school and high school students will offer soup samples in a culinary competition Souper Bowl, judged by local chefs and community leaders. Last year’s winners Epiphany School of Global Studies will take on New Bern High School, Havelock High School, West Craven High School, H.J. MacDonald Middle School, West Craven Middle School, and Tucker Creek Middle School.

Other events during the Throwdown include a performance by local musicians Strung Together, demonstrations by local craftsmen contributing to Empty Bowls, and sales for Empty Bowls and raffles tickets. Admission to all Throwdown events is free and open to the public. The Potters’ Throwdown is organized by the Empty Bowls New Bern committee, and all proceeds from event benefit Religious Community Services and Craven Arts Council.

At the Gallery: Randy Newman
Jan 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
At the Gallery: Randy Newman @ Bank of the Arts | New Bern | North Carolina | United States

At the Gallery: Randy Newman
​January 26, 2019

The nephew of 3 Hollywood film score composers, Randy Newman is widely known for his film scores and compositions, as well as his distinctive voice and satirical songwriting. His 1968 self titled debut album received critical acclaim and praise from other musicians, but never achieved Billboard success.  Newman has received twenty Academy Award nominations, and twice won the “Best Original Song.” He composed the scores for “Toy Story,” “Ragtime,” “Cats Don’t Dance,” and numerous other live action and animated movies. Hits include “You’ve got a Friend in Me,” “Short People,” and “Feels Like Home.”

The Heather Pierson Trio burst onto the national folk scene in 2015 with their debut EP, “Still She Will Fly.”  It features the multi‐genre songwriting, instrumental arrangements and stirring three-part vocal harmonies.  The title track was the #2 single on Folk radio in 2015.

Heather Pierson (lead vocals, piano) is an award-winning singer/songwriter and performer.  With eight previous solo recordings, Heather’s wise-beyond-her-years songwriting, angelic voice and world-class chops have catapulted her into the spotlight.

Davy Sturtevant (cornet, dobro, fiddle, mandolin, harmony vocals) is a veteran touring artist, songwriter, and performer.  Armed with a gorgeous tenor voice, Davy is at once a witty, thoughtful and engaging musical presence.

Shawn Nadeau (bass, harmony vocals) brings a rock solid thump and nearly two decades of performing experience to the trio, informed by a wide spectrum of unique rhythmic and melodic sensibilities ranging from rockabilly to reggae to jazz.

​Returning to our “At the Gallery” series following their amazing performance of the music of James Taylor in March 2018, we’re happy to welcome the Heather Pierson Trio back to present the songs of Randy Newman.

When the French-African couple Paul
and Sali discover the longed-for baby
they are about to adopt is white, family
chaos and confrontation ensue. With
joy, Paul and Sali adopt the baby but

their family. On the one side, there
is a social worker whose prejudice
drives her surprise visits, seeking faults
in the home or familial environment,
and on the other is the baby’s
adopted grandmother, doing what
this West African mother does best –
exaggerating everything! Luckily, she

Willie E. Atkinson & Transitional Jazz Quintet – The Poetry of Jazz Concert
Feb 15 @ 7:30 pm
Willie E. Atkinson & Transitional Jazz Quintet - The Poetry of Jazz Concert @ Orringer Auditorium New Bern CCC Campus

Explorations in the ARTS presents Willie E. Atkinson (vocalist) and The Transitional Jazz Quintet will present an evening of soulful ballads and up tempo jazz classics. This Poetry of Jazz concert should prove to be just the ticket for sharing a musical evening with your valentine!

An extraordinarily smooth Jazz vocalist, Atkinson makes each of his performances a unique and unforgettable experience for his audience with his fluid interpretation of Jazz and Blues standards. Whether exploring the syncopated rhythms of a swinging tune or telling the story of a lonesome, wanting heart, he offers a fresh approach and seizes every moment to make the songs his own.

Renowned Jazz critic Peter Ingram, CVNC Online Arts Journal in North Carolina, begins his jazz review of a recent concert stated, “They (the audience) basked in the “jazz poetry” interpretations that vocalist Willie Atkinson gave to mostly swing era standards.” And ends with… “He certainly inspired the audience to standing ovations at this concert!”

The Transitional Jazz Quintet is: Stephen Anderson, UNC Chapel Hill, piano; Phil Owens, New Bern, guitar; Doug Trammel, Myrtle Beach, bass; Michael Hanson, Rocky Point, percussion; and Jeff Bair, East Carolina University, saxophone. Guest jazz vocalist is Liz Pina of Wilmington, NC.
