.... AND JAZZ ENSEMBLE Improvisation in music and art to blend at SWCC on stage and in the gallery "&apos;Passion" is the key word when describing Bristol visual. artist Pat Jessee and Southwest Virginia Community College music educator Joseph Trivette. The fiuits of their shared passion for the arts and education will come together o,1 Thursday, December 5 r'', on SWCC's Com- munity Center stage. Beginning at 11:30 am, Dr. Trivette will tend his SWCC Jazz Ensemble in a performance, while Jessee will lead SWCC drawing students in responding on paper to the spirit of the live music. The public is invited to witness the blend of improvisation on musical instruments and through abstract brush strokes. Pat Jessee is known in the region for "+dancing her brush" across her canvas in live-time re- sponse to a symphony orchestra, a .jazz ensemble, or a bh, egrass breakdown. She has often been seen at Bristol's +'Rhythm and Roots" venues sketching ani- mated portraits of musicians in the intensity of live perform- ance, or making visual +through brushstrokes, the abstract notes, melodies, and emotion of the music being performed. . , Following Jessee's painting with the SWCC Jazz Ensemble's pertbrmance on December 5", the College will host a reception lbr the artist and her exhibit "Dancing Brush Arts [repro'" in the Ellen Von Dehsen Elmes Gallery in the Charles R. King Community Center. This event, beginning at 12:15 pro, is also free and open to the public, and will feature works created by Jessee in response to music greats of the region, ranging from Dave Eggars on the cello at Machiavelli's in Bristo.I, to Amethyst Kiah singing a ballad on the guitar, to Joseph Trivette and Vladimir Valijaric playing four hands on one piano at SWCC. Some works depict the vocal or instrumental artists themselves wrapped in a moment of musical intensity. Both Jessee and Trivette love turning people on to creative outlets through the arts. Dr. Joseph Trivette is the holder of the Gaynelle Lockhart Albert Endowed Chair of Music at Southwest Virginia Community College.

A woman of diverse creative abilities, Jessee has been active in the area tbr the past twenty )'ears exhibiting her work, doing live art improve, teaching ethnic dance, leading art parties, and "'fundraising for many wonderful organizations throughout the region." Describing her experience of responding visual!y to instrumental music, Jessee says, "The idea of improve has long been a part of interactions with groups or a stranger-knowing that I can trust the flow will come from this "MUSIC" and out of my pencil or pen- (or feet) creating with them a particular personal work for and Lor with them. My dance background enters here also- working the village into a line or circle flowing to a rhythm or melody together all with the same steps 'or"style but notiCing each time the "feeling" of the dance changes from the spirit in the dancers joining."

King Community Center gallery from November 22 "J to December 30th,. excepting days when the College is closed for the holidays. For more information about SWCC hours or location call 276.964.7619.
