Freed Gallery - August 6–September 7, Lincoln City

Perhaps it’s in their blood or maybe they work really hard at it, but from wherever their talent derives, the Jacques brothers have it in spades. This summer the Freed Gallery in Lincoln City hosts Jacques and Jacques, an exhibit featuring the work of the two talented brothers, Russell and Michael Jacques. The show will feature paintings and polished metal sculptures.

Russell Jacques is a world-renown sculptor and painter, whose work is in many private and public collections, galleries, and institutions. Russell’s theories on artistry and being an artist run deep. For most of his life, he has worked with bronze and stainless steel, partially because much of his work is destined for the outdoors.

Michael Jacques’ artwork ranges from illustrations, etchings and serigraphs, to paintings. The subjects of his paintings frequently focus on his great loves—dogs and old vehicles. Somewhere, in most of his paintings, there is a dog.

The Jacques brothers will be at the Freed Gallery on August 6–7, where they will be painting in a friendly “dual.” Those who attend can watch and chat with the brothers as they create art. (541-994-5600; www.freedgallery.com)

Na RosaiNa Rósaí - September 10, Lincoln City

The Lincoln City Cultural Center (LCCC) presents an evening of traditional Irish, Appalachian, Scottish, and Breton music, performed by four up-and-coming musicians in the Celtic scene. The Portland based group, Na Rósaí, is composed of Erik Killops, who studied Irish Fiddle at the University of Limerick in Ireland; bouzouki player Richie Rosencrans; piper Preston Howard; and flute player Conor Ó Bryan.

With fiddle, flute, uilleann pipes, bouzouki, whistles—and sweet, mellow vocals—Na Rósaí explores the links between the musical traditions of the Celtic regions and North America. Na Rósaí (pronounced “n’rosie”) is Irish Gaelic for “The Roses” in honor of Portland, the City of Roses.
Showtime for the concert is 7 p.m. at the LCCC. Tickets are $20 in advance or $22 at the door. Youth ages 18 and under admitted free. To reserve, click the “Buy Tickets Now” button on the LCCC website or call the center. (541-994-9994; www.lincolncity-culturalcenter.org)

The Blind SpotsMusic on the Bay - September 6, 13, & 27, Coos Bay

Another great lineup of musicians is on tap for this year’s Music on the Bay concert series, taking place from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays at the amphitheater in Mingus Park. The park offers a lovely setting to hear local and not-so-local musicians.

The concert September 6 features The Junebugs, who describe their music as “high-energy pop with Pacific Northwest folksy goodness.” September 13 features The Social Animals, an indie rock/Americana band known for its sarcastic lyrics, smooth sounds, and dry commentary. Two local standout bands, Che’s Lounge and The Clamdiggers, perform on September 20. The series wraps up September 27 with the Portland-based soulful seven, Dirty Revival.
All concerts are free to the public. In the event of rain, check the series’ Facebook page for an alternate concert location. (www.facebook.com/musiconthebay or www.musiconthebayoregon.com)
