She decided to chase her dream of becoming a master of the music, and has since released 12 albums, been on the covers of several magazines, nominated for seven Blues Music Awards nominations, and called "one helluva guitar-player" by none other than Bruce Springsteen. The Stationery Factory, 63 Flansburg Ave. Dalton, stationery-factory.com

D’ARCY SIMPSON ART WORKS
New York, 5 - 8 p.m.

Join us during Hudson’s Second Saturday Gallery Crawl on October 8th for a new show by Gretchen Kelly. In her new work, Kelly explores the human body’s delicate balance of fluidity and solidity. She writes, “I have no desire to work on a painting over and over--for me, the art I make is about what I can do in that moment in time, what I can capture in seconds. The human figure is always moving, feeling, changing-it is never totally still. The potential of the human body to express is what I am interested in.”
