Downtown BG and the BG Arts Council are joining together to produce and market the annual Art Walk.  This year marks the 22nd year of the springtime event.
Barbara Ruland, Executive Director of Downtown Bowling Green said: "The Arts Council has done wonderful things in the last few years and this partnership will leverage the strengths of the two organizations to grow a great community arts event."
Brenda Baker, president of the Bowling Green Arts Council said: "We are excited to further our mission through this partnership with Downtown Bowling Green for Art Walk. This is an excellent opportunity to nurture and grow arts culture in Wood County. The expertise of Downtown Bowling Green and their long relationship with the community combined with the specialized skills of the Bowling Green Arts Council should allow much growth in the coming years in enhancing the visibility and access of the arts to the greater Bowling Green area."

Pianist Jeremy Denk knows where he’ll start his recital at Bowling Green State University.
But a little more than two weeks before the show he’s still puzzling over where to go from there.
He likes, he said in a telephone interview, a performance to have “a rhythm, a coherence, or a theme, a shtick.”
He does know when he takes the Kobacker Hall stage at 8 p.m. on Feb. 15 for a Bowling Green State University Festival Series concert he’ll begin with what he termed one of Mozart’s “weirdest” sonatas, K. 533 in F Major. His residency at BGSU, which includes a master class on Friday, is in conjunction with the David D. Dubois Piano Competition.
In the sonata, he said, “Mozart goes off to the farthest extremes of which he’s capable.” Denk loves the “sheer inventiveness of the counterpoint and how unpredictable everything is. It’s an insane fusion of madcap comedy with Bach counterpoint.”
That’s just the first movement. The second, Denk said, starts off sounding like Mozart but before the listener knows it the piece “is rounding third base toward Mahler.”

TOLEDO - "Picturing Thailand," an exhibition of photographs by Elliot Charney at LeSo Gallery, 1527 Starr Ave,  will open with a reception Friday from 7 to 9 p.m.
A closing artist's talk and reception will be held Feb. 21 from 7 to 9 p.m.
Charney, recipient of the 2013 Toledo Museum of Art's Palmer Scholarship, concentrated two months of photographic exploration in Thailand capturing images of a foreign people, land, and culture. Approaching the unfamiliar ways of another culture from the perspective of an unknowing traveler, Charney sought to bring to light the beauty of what Thai people experience as typical and mundane.

Gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays  noon to 4 p.m.

Jazz drummer Dennis Mackrel attended the finest swing finishing school.
When Mackrel was 21, Count Basie added the youngster to his famed rhythm section.
He was the youngest  member of the orchestra, and the last drummer hired by Basie himself, who died 15 months later.
Mackrel got "a pretty good picture" of what it meant to swing, the drummer said with obvious understatement during a recent telephone interview..
The lessons learned from Basie and other jazz masters has carried him through the intervening three decades as he's built a career of one of the top drummers in music.
What he learned from the likes of pianists George Shearing and Hank Jones and bandleader and composer Thad Jones  is that no matter how famous a musician is, the fundamentals still matter.
"Even though it looked effortless, they all paid their dues, they all worked hard, they all had that love of music where they wouldn't give up," he said.
Though they may be viewed by fans as "larger than life," Mackrel said,  "they were all such down to earth people."
