Interview with...
JeanCherie, Sculptor, [JeanCherie.com] [415-359-9487] [jeancherie1@gmail.com], and Volunteer at The Hub Vallejo, resident at the Temple Arts Lofts.
Describing her recent move to the San Pablo bay, JeanCherie says "Now I find myself in a new phase of my career, still doing my own Art, but also finding myself as an advocate of Creative Community Building. I feel like a seed bursting to life in the fertile soil that is Vallejo!
Currently, JeanCherie has examples of her sculptures at the Hub, and of her stone carvings displayed as part of the Downtown Vallejo Art Windows at 418A Georgia St. Also, large examples of JeanCherie's paintings are shown currently in the windows at the Temple Artists Lofts, created with help and materials donated from fellow TAL (Temple Art Loft) artist resident Irby Walton, with canvas from a local business in Benicia, and other materials donated by Mike Kendell of Benicia. One window painting was created with the help of three TAL children.


Describing what practices of art media she likes best, JeanCherie says,
"I Love sculpting! I love the human form! I find it impossible to be confined to just one medium, or one style. I know it looks like a group show in my studio... but, it’s just me, Jean Cherie, following my muse(s)!
At this time I am working primarily in clay because it is so very responsive, spontaneous, immediate and satisfying to my Soul! I can do it all myself, from modeling the clay, to under glazing, to firing, and glazing. Having said that, I also love to do ‘Raku” firing, a traditional Japanese method of firing ceremonial tea bowls which has been enthusiastically embraced as a group activity for groups of sculptors and ceramists.
I am passionate about portraiture! The eyes, the windows of the Soul, the tweak of mischief in a smile, the soft curve of a baby’s cheek, the volumes expressed in the furrow of a brow, the arrangement of features that make us all so unique fascinate me, and I love to try and capture their subtleties in clay.
My love and ease with versatility comes from my early years working in "Hollywood" as a studio sculptor. Collaborating with production designers, art directors, engineers, directors, actors, AND other sculptors helped to hone my skills while smoothing my ego. From tiny design macquettes for theme parks to huge prehistoric living rooms (The Flintstones) I’ve sculpted just about everything you can imagine, and a bunch you can’t!
" "Alabaster, clay, bronze, cast paper, and wax are all mediums of expression for me. Collaboration with each of them directs and dictates the content and style of the resulting work of art.
So, don’t fence me in! All of the artists in my studio are me!
"

According to her biography, JeanCherie studied fashion design at Chouinard in Los Angeles which was affiliated with Disney and gave her the opportunity to work at WED (Walter E. Disney, the engineering department responsible for building Disneyland) for a semester. That convinced her that she should be in “Show Biz”! JeanCherie eventually became a costume fabricator, mold maker, and sculptor where her real education began as paid apprentice to the skilled craftsmen who worked in the industry. Over her long career she worked on TV shows like “H.R. Puff n’ Stuff, theme Parks, movies like “The Flintstones”, commercials, and other odd events. To keep herself sane while sculpting for art directors and the like she found it critical to create her own Art. The human form and especially portraiture are JeanCherie’s main areas of passion! She loves to explore sculpturally what makes us so unique and beautiful and then she strives to express that in clay. Here are some highlights from her career in the entertainment industry sculpting animatronic figures, character design, set dressing, costumes, props, and special effects include work in the motion pictures "Indian in the cupboard"; "Honey, I shrunk the kids"; "Mom and dad save the world"; "The Flintstones"; "Hocus Pocus", and in television with "Dinosaurs"; "Murder She Wrote"; "Home Improvement", and "H.R. Puff n' Stuff". JeanCherie has also has worked with Disneyland; Euro Disney; Ice Capades; and Universal, Studios, CA and Florida.

Provocative Comic Headlines Comedy Show in Downtown Vallejo -
The controversial comedic tornado known as Scott Capurro is bearing down on the Empress Theatre stage for his debut performance at the historic downtown theatre on Saturday, March 8, 2014 at 8pm.  He will be joined by local featured act Caitlin Gill.
Capurro lives in the United Kingdom, but comes home frequently to perform.  Well known to the Bay Area comedy and radio scene, he is known for his fearless and confrontational style of comedy laced with sexual innuendo and taboo subjects.
Audience should come to the show prepared for Capurro’s rapier wit and brilliantly outrageous comedy.  But, you might want to leave your Grandma at home!

About Scott Capurro -
Stand-up comic Scott Capurro, a San Francisco native, is known for his confrontational and controversial yet thought-provoking comedy. He won the prestigious Perrier Award for his first one-person show, Risk Gay, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He's also been seen on Comedy Central, and heard on Alice 97.3. He's also a veteran actor, with credits ranging from playing Harvey Fierstein's boyfriend in Mrs. Doubtfire to voicing half of the two-headed podrace announcer in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

About Caitlin Gill -
Feature act Caitlin Gill has performed on the Oddball Comedy Tour, the Outside Lands Festival, SF Sketchfest, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Vancouver Global Comedy Fest and in some of the best comedy clubs in the nation. Her writing has been featured in a Believer Magazine project for 826LA.  7x7 Magazine featured her as one of the 7 Comics Rocking the Local Scene, and she was voted Best Comedian in the East Bay Express “Best Of” Edition in 2013.  You can also hear her on podcasts like Put Your Hands Together and Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction and NPR's Snap Judgement.   Her comedy style twists her personal experiences into comedy confessions that will leave you red in the face from laughter. 

About the new comedy series at the Empress Theatre in Vallejo -
Who doesn't need a good laugh nowadays?  Sure, we can always seek out our local comedy club to catch the latest up-and-coming comic amidst the two-drink minimum charges and suggestive material.  But, there is a new trend in the bay area.  Featured standup comedy evenings are becoming a welcome addition to the legitimate concert stage in many theatres and performing arts venues.
Red Dragonfly Productions has a handle on this trend, and is announcing their spring series of comedy shows at the Empress Theatre in Vallejo that focuses on smart material for thinking adults who enjoy a night out but still appreciate the environment of legitimate theatre.
Comedy takes center stage this spring with comics Jason Love, Ben Feldman, Liz Grant, Maggie Newcomb, Ngaio Bealum, Robin Cee, Tom Devenport, Don Reed, Will Durst’s BoomerAging, Mike Pace, Rocky LaPorte and the edgy and controversial Scott Capurro.  Previous shows have included Andrew Norelli, Tim Lee, Don Friesen, Dan St. Paul, Johnny Steele, G King and many other favorite local Bay Area comics.
With a lineup of fresh, insightful, and funny comics known for their well crafted material and relatable humor, these theatre based comedy shows are for audiences who appreciate the art of comedy.

You're invited! Richmond is doing it; why not Vallejo?
Who: Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin and ACCE
Where: The Mira Theatre's Bay Terrace Theater, 51 Daniels Ave., Vallejo, CA
When: Thursday, March 20, 7:30 pm (doors open at 7:00)
What: Hear about a program that provides relief to folks who are burdened with underwater loans.
Refreshments provided and free parking available
Are you or your neighbors paying a mortgage much higher than the current assessed value?
You're not alone.
Come hear Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin and the non-profit community organization Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) describe their new plan, designed to bring help to underwater homeowners.
The City is considering a new program that could help thousands of homeowners reduce their mortgage debt by tens of thousands of $$$. Find out if this or other programs might help you, and join the fight to hold the banks accountable!

According to Zillow.com's "heat map", in Vallejo's 94590 zip-code, an astounding 64% of homes are underwater. 9% of owners are currently delinquent on their payments. The 94590 zip-code also has the dubious distinction of being in the top 1% of US homes both underwater, and how far their values have fallen from peaks in the mid-2000s. See more at [http://www.zillow.com/visuals/negative-equity/]
Underwater homes undermine the stability of our neighborhoods. Owners walk away and often times squatters move in. Surrounding home values continue to decline. Homeowners have no equity or cash-flow to maintain their homes. Investors purchase foreclosed houses on city hall steps. The fabric of our neighborhoods unravel.
This lecture is first in a series of community oriented events at the Bay Terrace Theatre.
