Yesi Casanova Featured Artist at Clark's Bistro; Rodney Stubbs provides the music

Yesie Casanova will be the featured at Clark’s Bistro and Pub, 246 E. Main St. with an opening reception on August 6 from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.  Music for the reception will be singer/guitarist Rodney Stubbs
     The artist started painting at a young age and said her mother had a big influence on her. She exposed her to fine art and decorated their home (in Venezuela where she was born and raised) with prints of masterpieces while taking her to art museums. When she grew up she had a period when she quit painting. After a few years of not painting (thinking it wasn’t a career choice) when she picked up a brush again she felt “alive” and happy again. It all came back: the feeling of joy of painting, back to what she is passionate about.
      Casanova thinks her love and passion for painting shows in her art. She puts all she is feeling at the moment and because she is so in tune with her work and her soul, she believes it shows. She said, “My art has a part of me and my passionate self shows through my paintings.”
     Musical entertainment for the opening reception will be Rodney Stubbs singing and playing the guitar. He will have you remembering songs you forgot to remember and pretty soon you will be waiting for the next one. Then you’ll be tapping your toe, then maybe dancing a little. Then you will be all in jumping up and dancing and clapping and singing along -- And asking for more. He gets you like that.
     Judith Shortt, realtor for the Phoenix Realty Group, located downtown Hillsboro, will host this event. Plan your Art Walk journey to include Clark’s Bistro & Pub when you come to downtown Hillsboro, which has become the art destination in northwest Oregon.

The Stefan Street Musicians
