46 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, February 28- March 6, 1997 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Steppin Out Orange Whip to froth up some fun at Sir Guy's By Jen EUingsworth Sir Guy's in Rehoboth Beach will be stirred up by thesly, funky sound of Orange Whip on Friday, Feb. 28. The band's frontman, lead gui- tarist and backing vocalist Jason Robling describes the group's style as "bluesy, jazzy, danceable funk." Robling said although the band is influenced by the reggae sound, it has an original style all its own. "Basically, we like reggae," said Robling. "But we're not a reggae band." Robling is joined by fellow band members Brandon Sengstack (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Tom Kirk (bass guitar) and Barry Sherard (drums). Together for a little more than two years, Orange Whip recently made waves with its two tracks included on the Washington-based indic music compilation, "DC Score." The CD was the fh'st offi- cial Orange Whip release. The two tracks included on "DC Score," which Robling said aren't even the band's best efforts, are called "Lust" and "Grow." In all, the disc includes 20 songs from ten different bands. Currently, Orange Whip is putting the wraps on its fu'st inde- pendent venture, "Get Some." The band finished mastering the new CD at Omega Studios, and offers a sneak peek at its Internet home page, located at http://slip- knot.confforangewhip. To find out touring information, call the band's concert line at (301) 519- 0097. Robling said band members are based out of theGaithersburg, Md., and northern Va. areas. He said the group plays regularly at spots in Washington, D.C., Balti- more, Md., and Ocean City, Md. Robling also said the band has bought a new van and plans to head to the Carolinas soon. In addition, Orange Whip has gigs lined up in Boston at the end of March. Friday night's appearance at Sir Guy's will be Orange Whip's sec- ond showing in Rehoboth Beach.

Representing a Maryland-based co-operative, the artists of the Art Institute & Gallery of Salisbury, Md. work both in contemporary and traditional styles. The group recently invited local favorite Aina Nergaard-Namack to join their ranks. "I'm very excited about the variety of media and styles this group exhibit will showcase," said League director Nancy O'Brien. 'fflae opportunity to see such qual- ity prints, pottery and paintings side by side is a rare one." Featured works include the clay creations of potter Ron Artman, whose large-scale vessels are inspired by ancient forms. Artman uses the age-old firing Japanese technique of Raku in which forms are heated to temperatures as high as 2,000 degrees, then quickly cooled to produc e deep, metallic colors, a crackle finish to the glaze, and a rich texture on unglazed clay surfaces. The light saturated landscapes and figure paintings of Ann Eel- man will also be featured. Eel- man's inspirations are the Eastern Shore farms and towns near her Fruitland, Md. home. Paintings, pottery and prints of Marie Cavellero, Ann Dawson, Paula Hepburn, Angela Herbert- Hodges, Jerry Miles, Nancy Mysack, Aina Nergaard-Namack, Gloria Smith, Clytie Taylor, Sue Thomas, and Marge Violetta com- plete the show. Violetta, whose handbuilt clay forms add a strong, tactile element to the exhibit, reflects the theme of the exhibit both in her work and in her artist's statement. Violetta writes: "The wonder of forming a ball of clay into a vase, figure or bowl, using my hands as a primary tool gives me a feeling of tranquillity and gratification." An opening reception for "Per- sonal Expressions" and the artists of the Art Institute & Gallery will be held in the Homestead Mansion at the Rehoboth Art League Satur- day, March 1, from 5-7 p.m. The public is invited. Hours for the exhibit at the Homesteadin Henlopen Acres are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. "Shadows," a pit-fired clay vessel by Marge Violetta is part of the new exhibit of artists from the Art Institute and Gallery at the Rehoboth Art League.
