Seco Pearl Presents a Musical and Art Debut

Saturday, January 30th, from 6-10pm.:
Artist Opening for Adeana Carlyle, a talented painter and figure drawer well known amongst the artist circles around town. Adeana has studied under Conrad Cooper, UNM art teacher extradordinaire. He has started a blues band and this will be his debut musical show. They have tons of talent and seem destined to become one of Taos’ favorites. To top things off, Austin singer-songwriter Raina Rose, will grace us with her musical talent. Raina was chosen as one of the top 12 picks for indie-folk singers and has become quite well known for her exquisite lyrics, stage presence, and refreshing guitar picking.

Adeana has a degree in music and education and has taught at elementary, high school, and college levels. She moved to Taos five years ago and has been refining her personal art ever since. She works in figure, portrait, and plein air landscape styles. She states that her “true love are the conte drawings that will be featured in the show.” Her work is precise, simple, and eloquent. She has the ability to grab people’s attention and make them instantly feel connected to the figure. She states, “My interest has been and still is drawn toward the inclusion of the human in all of my art. Whether it is a portrait, figure or incorporation of the figure, I find that the connection that develops among the artist, model and audience is what is fascinating and in reality gives life to canvas and paper.” Adeana stands out because she develops a deep connection to her model and brings that relationship to light in her work. She says, “It is that subtle yet dynamic collaboration between the artist and model that, when it works, compels the viewer into the experience of being human and being able to share what the artist and model worked to create.” Join us in this collaboration of what figure drawing truly can be, a dance between model, artist, and viewer.
Following the reception will be music by a new band in town, The Three Chords. Conrad Cooper has been a prominent Taos artist and teacher at UNM for several years, but takes a new step in a musical direction with this blues and funk band. Mr. Cooper plays the upright bass and provides vocals, along with Jackson Price on guitar and vocals, Casey Arillaga on drums, and Jeremy Jones on saxophone. He says that the music is, “as Swing, Funk, and Blues, as oldschool as it gets”. They have been perfecting their sound for some time now and this debut show is not to be missed.
Closing out the night, will be Raina "Railroad" Rose. Raina grew up in Portland OR, where she made her way to become of their top indie-folk performing artists. It is said that her first CD produced there with Mississippi Records. was a musical masterpiece. From there she moved to Austin TX and has released two more albums. She came through Taos last December and was so loved that Seco Pearl was specially asked to bring her back for an encore show. She has been performing since she was three, singing "Joh B. Goode" with her father and sister in a house high on a hill in Eagle Rock, CA. It is said that Raina's dad, Mo, introduced her to the guitar when she was 11. Her press states, “From that moment forward, Raina's musical world burst wide open. She devoured songwriters old and new, such as Joni Mitchel, Dar Williams, the Indigo Girls, Dan Bern, Robert Hunter, Paul Simon, Elliott Smith, and a whole slew of new folks who used to and still create good, honest, soul-wrenching music that may or may not fly under the radar of the masses.”
Dont miss this wonderful night of art, music, students, teachers, friends, and family. Seco Pearl promises some delicious treats, along with their famous teas, chai, and hot chocolate.
