Reviver Records artist Tenille Arts was headed out for dates in Pennsylvania and Ontario last week, when she was given the exciting news she’s been hoping would come for as long as she can remember. She will enter the sacred circle and make her Grand Ole Opry debut on September 21, 2019.

“I could not be more honored and excited to be stepping on to the Grand Ole Opry stage to make my debut,” said an elated Tenille. “I have dreamed about this moment for a long time, and I can’t wait to celebrate that night with my family and friends.”

The “Call You Names” singer broke the news to her home country audience while performing at the massive Boots And Hearts Music Festival in Oro-Medonte, Ontario on Saturday. Following her performance on the Front Porch Stage and set at the SiriusXM VIP Barn, Tenille joined iHeartRadio’s Shannon Ella to introduce LANCO on the Main Stage.

Tenille will make two Nashville appearances this week. She joined Kalie Shorr and other artists for the Dirt Road Divas Show at the Analog at Hutton Hotel on Tuesday night, and she returns to Song Suffragettes on Monday, Aug. 19.

She heads to Holly, Mich., for the 93.1 NASH FM New Concert Series, the American Music Festival in Virginia Beach on Aug. 30 and Wisconsin’s Taste of Madison on Aug. 31.

Born and raised in Weyburn, Tenille picked up the guitar and penned her first song at age 13 and has been performing across the U.S. and Canada ever since. She made her first appearance on The Bachelor in January 2018 singing her original song “Moment of Weakness.” The performance resulted in a record deal with powerhouse indie label Reviver Records.

She made her second appearance on the show in January of this year performing “I Hate This.” The song hit No, 1 on both the U.S. and Canadian iTunes Country Charts and No. 9 U.S. iTunes all-genre following the episode.

Tenille has released an EP and a full-length album, and her music has tallied over 25 million streams.

Music Row Magazinecritic Robert K. Oermann called Tenille “Promising in the extreme.” Streaming giant Pandora named her one of their new artists to watch, and CMT included her in their “Ten Must-See Indies You Need to Know,” a video discovery program that spotlights rising independent artists and established artists from independent labels. Rolling Stone named Tenille one of their “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know.”

Saskatoon tattoo artist has year-long wait list – Global News

Published

By


Tattoo artist Jesse Zabos’ schedule is full for the next year.

“I will be opening my books in January and we will see how things go,” he told Global News.

Appointments for Zabos and the four other artists who work at his tattoo shop, Art Sharks Tattoo, are scarce because of the demand for their unique designs.

“For inspiration we will take what the client wants, like what their ideas are, and then we will go from there,” he said.

“As artists we do a lot of custom stuff, so we create everything mostly from what’s inside our heads.”

He said designing something the client likes enough to carry with them for the rest of their life involves discussions, which can get very personal.

“I have done a few like memorial pieces and stuff that’s really kind of touched the customer,” he said.

“I think it’s good to help them heal through sometimes a tattoo as well.”

Darla Lindbjerg, CEO of the Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce, said the success makes sense, given the quality of the tattoo.

“If people are having a good experience and you are offering a great quality product, people will come back,” she said.

Zabos said part of the reward is knowing his art has such intense meaning for those who wear it.

“Sometimes it gets a little emotional when you finish the tattoo, just to have that closure for some people depending on what the situation of the tattoo is,” he said.

“But it’s really satisfying to make them happy and (know) they can enjoy it for the rest of their lives.”

Artist looking to make Waterloo Region more 'WorldRooted' – KitchenerToday.com

Published

By


It’s a movement drawing community together in a positive place, and it’s coming to the Region. 

‘WorldRooted: the Art Project for People’ founder Bethany Ann Davidson from Goderich, says they have been organizing art shows and cultural events to provide a space for people to develop their networks and find support.

“We’re really just looking to help people find their voice, to support charities both locally and around the world, shine a light on the good and let people connect.” says Davidson.

Davidson says she began WorldRooted in 2018, after learning that a friend and her family were experiencing survivor’s guilt after they had moved to Canada from Syria.

She says her friend and her husband were sending everything they could back to their families who had nothing. 

“I really wanted them to know that I felt for them, so I made a painting and when I sold it, I gave all of the money to them.” says Davidson, “And it’s been kind of like that ever since.”

On October 26th, WorldRooted will be in Waterloo to hold an art event at the Seven Shores Community Cafe.

The solo art show gives residents the opportunity to check out Davidson’s latest work and will offer food and beverages for purchase.

According to Davidson, the location for this event was chosen because of her relationship with co-owners of the cafe and the community built around Seven Shores Cafe.

“My friends Steve and Deb Tulloch, who co-own Seven Shores Cafe, they really had a large impact on me on what it means to love and to live well.” says Davidson, “So when I said  ‘Hey, I would love to have an artisan at your cafe,’ they said ‘Hey, that would be awesome!’ ” 

“We’re just going to get together, those of us who are available that night.” says Davidson, “There will be live music, and we’re just going to have a really nice time.”

Davidson says because of the Tulloch’s involvement with the International Association for Refugees Canada, and their relationship with Adventure4Change owner Jeremy Horne, she decided to donate 25 per cent of all proceeds on October 26th to these charities, and Reception House Waterloo Region.

Davidson says her display hanging at the cafe focuses on food like chickpeas, coffee plants and sugar cane, plants that are grown in different countries but are used everyday by Canadians. 

“A lot of Canadians have seen these pieces and not known what the plant was that was in the art,” says Davidson, “And that’s because they didn’t grown up growing coffee plants, or sugar cane or whatever else.”

“It’s meant to help us see more of our global village, and help then to also recognize that there are people in our community who do recognize these plants and do have a past that is closely connected to this flora.”

Davidson says with her work and WorldRooted, she hopes to inspire conversation between people to foster better understanding each other.

“I believe that artists make art because they have something that needs to come out.” says Davidson, “I’m just putting it out there for people to see, and hopefully people want to buy and take it home, and it becomes a conversation starter for the rest of their lives.”

UFV launches school of creative arts – Abbotsford News

Published

on

By


The theatre department and the visual arts department at University of the Fraser Valley have united to form the School of Creative Arts (SoCA) within the UFV College of Arts.

All theatre and visual arts courses and programs continue to be offered.

Dr. Heather Davis-Fisch has been named director of the new school. She was previously department head of the theatre program from 2016 to 2019 and joined UFV in 2011 as associate professor.

“I’m very excited about this opportunity,” Davis-Fisch said.

“Combining theatre and visual arts into a new school gives us a chance to think consciously about what our vision and values will be and what we as an interdisciplinary school can do for our students and the Fraser Valley community.

“Coming from a theatre background myself, I am very excited about working with visual arts and art history faculty.”

SoCA will combine digital technologies and media with traditional arts practice and performance.

Davis-Fisch said merging the two departments positions UFV to become a cultural hub and centre of creative innovation in the Fraser Valley.

SoCA places a high value on experiential learning and preparing students for careers valuing flexibility, innovation, and creative problem-solving.

“Having all the disciplines together in one school will give us some exciting potential to grow our bachelor of fine arts and bachelor of media arts in some very innovative directions,” Davis Fisch said.

“And there will be some very creative collaboration between the different areas. For example, our first theatre production this year will be located in the S’eliyemetaxwtexw art gallery on the Abbotsford campus. It’s about a man who buys a pure white painting and tries to justify it as fine art to his friends.”
