The Carlsbad Art Wall at Señor Grubby’s is getting a whole new look on the weekend of January 16, 2016 as Encinitas based artist Skye Walker takes over the east wall of the Carlsbad eatery.

The first 2016 CAW artist Skye Walker will bring his life-long love for illustration, design and mural painting to the CAW with his signature colorful composition of nature and environmentally conscious iconography. Walker found his love for art in his early youth while traveling the country with the family bluegrass band named EarthWalkers. They logged over 2,000 shows nationwide singing about preserving the environment. During this time, Walker’s father taught him the art of lettering and murals. His father was an accomplished sign painter and muralist in the 70’s and 80’s.

The Weir At New Village Arts Theatre

by The Editors on September 20, 2015

Theweir

The New Village Arts Theatre is happy to present The Weir, written by Conor McPherson, directed by Kristianne Kurner opening on October 10, 2015. But the even better news is that beginning October 2, 2015 NVA will be running some “pay-what-you-can” previews. Here’s what The Weir is about:

You can always count on a pub to be the one place you want to go where everybody knows your name — which is especially true for the townsmen who congregate at Brendan’s pub for their daily pint. However, all familiarity gets shaken up when a mysterious woman enters the bar and the men instinctively regale her with fascinating tales of spirits from the past and present. But one story proves to be much more chilling and real to the men than they could ever imagine. Winning the Laurence Olivier Award for “Best New Play,” this haunting production of The Weir makes its NVA debut!
