About the Show:
National demographics reveal trends toward smaller living spaces, whether folks are just starting out, or downsizing.  Gallery artists are therefore thinking outside the box to design artistic and functional pieces for these spaces.  Whether considering innovative concepts in furniture, wall art or wearables, take a look at Inspiring Design from our 75 artists.  Visit the Gallery in person, as well as our extensive Website and Online Shop. 

About the Musicians:

The Jenny Davis Jazz Duo

A Seattle native, Jenny Davis earned her Bachelor of Music from the prestigious Cornish College of the Arts. She is currently working on her MFA in jazz composition.  A 20-year steward of straight-ahead jazz, she actively performs throughout the U.S. and Canada in clubs, festivals and jazz venues.  A true original with an authentic sound, Jenny has that rare vocal ability to swing hard in the pocket and hold her own with the best musicians in the business.  Jenny’s commitment to the art form is never more evident than in her third and newest CD release “INSIDE YOU”, where legendary jazz composer Rodgers Grant sought her to record his beautiful ballad “Morning Glory”.  A versatile vocalist, she is highly requested and is considered one of the Pacific Northwest’s top big band 
vocalists.  A passionate steward of jazz, Jenny passes on the tradition as a jazz educator, and vocal coach.  Davis is inspired by such great jazz vocalists as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Mel Tormé, Shirley Horn, June Christy and Kurt Elling.

“A pure voice and laser like pitch!” (Jazz Times) 
“Vocalese doesn’t get any better than this!” (All About Jazz)
“A welcome addition to the history of jazz vocalists.” (All About Jazz) 
“Stellar vocal jazz...magnificent...talented!” (Smother)
