Art Exhibit - Corazon Watkins - "Essence of a Man"

  • The Depot

Corazon Watkins's artworks deal with a critical view of cultural, political, social, and environmental issues. Although oil is her principal medium, she considers herself a multi-media artist. She often experiments with unconventional materials such as old window frames, wood panels or square wooden boxes which can be wall hung, which she purposely damages and textures to achieve an aged appearance and a nuance of nostalgia.

The Depot and gallery are open Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Winter Wind Concert - The Brother Brothers

  • The Depot

While they’re technically a new band, The Brother Brothers have been in this together for life, and their familial connection comes through in the music, harkening back to some of the greatest family harmonies ever made. They approach their poignant and often charming songs with an almost startling sense of ease, and the tight harmonies are enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine. Their ability to pull the listener into their quietly energetic musical journey is a joy to behold. I can’t wait to be out on the road with Adam & David and hear their heart wrenching songs and spot on harmonies night after night!
