August 29 – October 26, 2014 The Gallery at Vaudeville presents Sydney Yeager’s "Persistent Memory" Exhibit
Private Opening Thursday, August 28th 6:30 – 8:30pm

“This exhibition spans the years 2009 to the present, and represents my evolving interest in fragmentation and the dissolution of the whole into singular, independent parts. The idea arose as I visited ancient ruins in Italy,Turkey, Mexico and the Southwestern U.S. As well as these ancient sites, I find the demolition sites that I pass en route to my studio to be fascinating. Some of the paintings are loosely based on photographs of these sites. In my mind, there is a connection between these construction sites and the ancient ruins I love to visit. Both exist in a dreamlike space, neither here nor there, but in between.

In addition, my influences include Italian Baroque ceiling paintings, the preserved fragments of Roman fresco,Italian mosaics, pixilation, and process painting.

These diverse influences hold in common the themes of fragmentation and transition. The question is whether these fragments are nostalgic reminders of the past, or the beginnings of a new form. The answer is never clear, and is always interesting to me.”

at Luckenbach Texas
April 6, 2014 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

San Antonio-born Walt Wilkins has been called a genius, more than once, and a writer the caliber of John Steinbeck and his voice as comfortable as a pair of old blue jeans, and he is, and has, all of that. His crafting of story-songs, hard-edged vocals to sing them and a plaintive guitar have made him a fixture of the Texas music scene (and Nashville before that). He’s put his magical touch on recordings by new and veteran artists, too many to count. Is he near done? Hasn’t he done it all? Double hell no.
With The Mystiqueros, Wilkins has created something of a “Texas Hill Country super-group” that features five great singers and four great songwriters from the heart of the Lone Star State, all of whom have made their own records and are flush with recording credits.
Onstage and in the studio, Wilkins is joined by Bill Small (bass, percussion, acoustic guitar), John M. Greenberg (electric guitars), Ramon Rodriguez (drums, percussion) and Marcus Eldridge (electric guitars). Live performances around Texas are being likened to both outlaw country and classic rock bands, and they’re captured on DIAMONDS IN THE SUN on Tex-centric label Palo Duro Records.
Wilkins says this is the most fun he’s ever had playing music in a band in 30 years. He describes the music of The Mystiqueros (nicknamed mq5) as highly reminiscent of ’70s country rock from Texas and the West Coast and blues and soul that members grew up listening to and features high-quality songwriting and musicianship, rhythm, and vocal arrangements.

Josh Grider is a country songwriter/recording artist. His latest and greatest is the 4/29/14 release entitled 'Luck and Desire'. Josh’s confidence is unflappable. His mix of traditional and modern influences has combined to make a living, breathing collection of songs that range from ethereal and pensive, to light-hearted and downright funny. He makes no more apologies for his electronic loops than he does for his thoughtful lyrics. He proudly says, “I'm not ashamed of one thing on this record. I love traditional country music, but I doubt anybody will call this a traditional country album. I’ve got all the respect in the world for what was done, but I also believe that you've got to keep moving the ball forward. New stuff has got to keep happening. I'm not going to do it better than Haggard did it, so I'm not going to try and do that. I need to sound like me. My goal is to be greater than the sum of my influences. Not better than, but distinguishable from. Hopefully that’s what you’ll hear in Luck & Desire.”

Drew Kennedy is a singer / songwriter from New Braunfels, Texas. He's been making a living writing songs since 2004. Americana

“Drew Kennedy released an album this week that got the whole town talking. well they should be listening. His album, "Wide Listener" is ridiculously good.”

Fredericksburg Fall Farmers Market
he Fredericksburg Farmers Market (FFM) is a seven-month long, weekly event that brings locally grown food to the community. FFM is a producer/grower market consisting of farmers, ranches and wineries located within the geographic neighborhood of Gillespie and adjacent counties. FFM has been operating for four years in the Marktplatz, the center of Fredericksburg. In 2011, in partnership with the Pioneer Museum, we expanded to include a two-month fall market on Pioneer’s grounds to bring fall produce to the community and to emphasize the historical importance of agriculture to the local economy. We are growing and now have some 21 vendors that participate in the FFM. FFM is maintained by a group of volunteers whose goal is to bring good local food to the community, help our local farmers, ranchers and wineries sell product, and further promote Fredericksburg as a culinary arts center.

We believe it is important to think and act locally. By this we mean, whenever possible buy locally grown and produced foods for your table. When you support your independent, local farms, you not only help our environment, but the planet as a whole. Reducing transportation emissions and excess packaging makes a difference for the environment and our bodies. More importantly, nothing tastes quite as good as something picked and prepared fresh the same day.

August 29 – October 26, 2014 The Gallery at Vaudeville presents Sydney Yeager’s "Persistent Memory" Exhibit
Private Opening Thursday, August 28th 6:30 – 8:30pm

“This exhibition spans the years 2009 to the present, and represents my evolving interest in fragmentation and the dissolution of the whole into singular, independent parts. The idea arose as I visited ancient ruins in Italy,Turkey, Mexico and the Southwestern U.S. As well as these ancient sites, I find the demolition sites that I pass en route to my studio to be fascinating. Some of the paintings are loosely based on photographs of these sites. In my mind, there is a connection between these construction sites and the ancient ruins I love to visit. Both exist in a dreamlike space, neither here nor there, but in between.

In addition, my influences include Italian Baroque ceiling paintings, the preserved fragments of Roman fresco,Italian mosaics, pixilation, and process painting.

These diverse influences hold in common the themes of fragmentation and transition. The question is whether these fragments are nostalgic reminders of the past, or the beginnings of a new form. The answer is never clear, and is always interesting to me.”

Fredericksburg Fall Farmers Market
he Fredericksburg Farmers Market (FFM) is a seven-month long, weekly event that brings locally grown food to the community. FFM is a producer/grower market consisting of farmers, ranches and wineries located within the geographic neighborhood of Gillespie and adjacent counties. FFM has been operating for four years in the Marktplatz, the center of Fredericksburg. In 2011, in partnership with the Pioneer Museum, we expanded to include a two-month fall market on Pioneer’s grounds to bring fall produce to the community and to emphasize the historical importance of agriculture to the local economy. We are growing and now have some 21 vendors that participate in the FFM. FFM is maintained by a group of volunteers whose goal is to bring good local food to the community, help our local farmers, ranchers and wineries sell product, and further promote Fredericksburg as a culinary arts center.

We believe it is important to think and act locally. By this we mean, whenever possible buy locally grown and produced foods for your table. When you support your independent, local farms, you not only help our environment, but the planet as a whole. Reducing transportation emissions and excess packaging makes a difference for the environment and our bodies. More importantly, nothing tastes quite as good as something picked and prepared fresh the same day.

August 29 – October 26, 2014 The Gallery at Vaudeville presents Rodolfo Choperena

"My work is "abstracted" photography: representational but complicated by the obscuring and absenting of the subject. By inducing movement and the manipulation of light sources, I provoke a figurative tableau towards transforming into abstraction. Every shot, every video is the evidence of a performance, with the acts of montage and manipulation performed in-camera. Movement is the primary performative act. By manipulating the camera's placement, aperture and exposure settings in relation to color fields, landscapes, light sources, precipitation and seascapes, my work pushes the boundaries of perception to create organic and lyrical freeforms. Resulting images retain their pure chroma. Each is a reinterpretation of the original subject, containing striations that move in varying intervals and rhythms, alternately compressing and expanding positive and negative space. However abstracted a composition may be, a firm representational vantage points plays host to personal objects and scenario manipulations, making each image a direct reflection of my ever-changing environment".

April 6, 2014 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

San Antonio-born Walt Wilkins has been called a genius, more than once, and a writer the caliber of John Steinbeck and his voice as comfortable as a pair of old blue jeans, and he is, and has, all of that. His crafting of story-songs, hard-edged vocals to sing them and a plaintive guitar have made him a fixture of the Texas music scene (and Nashville before that). He’s put his magical touch on recordings by new and veteran artists, too many to count. Is he near done? Hasn’t he done it all? Double hell no.
With The Mystiqueros, Wilkins has created something of a “Texas Hill Country super-group” that features five great singers and four great songwriters from the heart of the Lone Star State, all of whom have made their own records and are flush with recording credits.
Onstage and in the studio, Wilkins is joined by Bill Small (bass, percussion, acoustic guitar), John M. Greenberg (electric guitars), Ramon Rodriguez (drums, percussion) and Marcus Eldridge (electric guitars). Live performances around Texas are being likened to both outlaw country and classic rock bands, and they’re captured on DIAMONDS IN THE SUN on Tex-centric label Palo Duro Records.
Wilkins says this is the most fun he’s ever had playing music in a band in 30 years. He describes the music of The Mystiqueros (nicknamed mq5) as highly reminiscent of ’70s country rock from Texas and the West Coast and blues and soul that members grew up listening to and features high-quality songwriting and musicianship, rhythm, and vocal arrangements.

Josh Grider is a country songwriter/recording artist. His latest and greatest is the 4/29/14 release entitled 'Luck and Desire'. Josh’s confidence is unflappable. His mix of traditional and modern influences has combined to make a living, breathing collection of songs that range from ethereal and pensive, to light-hearted and downright funny. He makes no more apologies for his electronic loops than he does for his thoughtful lyrics. He proudly says, “I'm not ashamed of one thing on this record. I love traditional country music, but I doubt anybody will call this a traditional country album. I’ve got all the respect in the world for what was done, but I also believe that you've got to keep moving the ball forward. New stuff has got to keep happening. I'm not going to do it better than Haggard did it, so I'm not going to try and do that. I need to sound like me. My goal is to be greater than the sum of my influences. Not better than, but distinguishable from. Hopefully that’s what you’ll hear in Luck & Desire.”

Drew Kennedy is a singer / songwriter from New Braunfels, Texas. He's been making a living writing songs since 2004. Americana

“Drew Kennedy released an album this week that got the whole town talking. well they should be listening. His album, "Wide Listener" is ridiculously good.”

"It’s still a sea of cowboy hats and pickup trucks, a place where you can sip award-winning wines in a landscape dotted with as many cacti as vines. Visitors may flock to Hill Country to sip wine, but they end up drinking in the romance of the Old West, too. - Alexis Korman

Texas Hill Country #1
on The New York Times
31 Places to Go This Summer

"Who needs Europe? The Texas Hill Country, west of Austin and north of San Antonio, might be the next best thing to crossing the Atlantic. The region is lush, colorful and, unlike much of the pancake-flat state, dotted with beautiful green hills that are evocative of Tuscany or the south of France. Moreover, the region is speckled with 22 wineries that buzz with food and music festivals year round. And towns like Fredericksburg offer a taste of the Old World, with German-style biergartens and schnitzelhauser. "

5 Eco-Friendly Wineries

Pedernales Cellars, Texas

Composting, recycling, and natural pest management is just the starting point for Pedernales Cellars. By building underground, this Texas Hill Country winery takes advantage of the area’s natural limestone to provide a cool and steady environment for case storage, slashing the facility’s energy consumption in half. Removal of invasive plant species and cedar overgrowth from the property has also led to the reemergence of previously lost seeps and springs. An added bonus? The tasting room features local and sustainable products like Bella Vista Ranch’s olive oils and t-shirts made from renewable bamboo fibers.
