Victoria

Jazz Northwest features music and musicians not only from the Seattle-Tacoma area, but also from Portland Oregon to Victoria and Vancouver BC.  This week's show (Sunday, 2 PM Pacific on 88.5 KPLU and kplu.org) includes Vancouver BC saxophonist Cory Woeeds from the 100th release of the Cellar Live label.  Cory started the label in 2001 and it has been the source of much good music from BC.

Eerie sounds from vegetables and sculptures that look like happy caterpillars. Those are some of the "promising objects" you'll find in an exhibit of the same name. The show is at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and features the art of Alison MacTaggart.

MacTaggart likes creating art that has a familiar aspect to it but something unfamiliar as well. The results are quirky sculptures that are cheerful and noisy. They encourage all sorts of communication and show visitors her sense of humor.
