76 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Nov. 9 - Nov. 15, 2001 ARTS & I ENTERTAINMENT lli Steppin' Out Former Bad Company bassist to perform at Sydney's By Jen Ellingworth During his three years as bassist for supergroup Bad Company, Paul Cullen went to parties at George Harrison's house, played golf with members of AC/DC and counted members of Styx among his close friends. Now, Cullen resides in Millsboro, where he continues to do what he loves best - write and perform music - and says he is proud to call Sussex County his home. "When I first came down here on vacation, I just fell in love with this area," said Cullen, a native of Buffalo, N.Y., who later moved to Fort Myers, Fla., where he befriended Lewes resident Mike Daisey. Daisey, frontman of the former local group the Wise Guys, and Cullen, a self-taught guitarist, played in the band Boys of Summer during the early to mid- 1980s, during which time the pair made friends with a myriad of music superstars and toured around the country. Cullen still keeps in touch with pros in the musi c industry and can easily commute to the metro areas of Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York. While he calls the time he spent with the British hard rock group Bad Company - per- haps best known for platinum sin- gles such as "Shining Star" and "Feel Like Makin' Love" - as being "awesome." He said he's now using quiet time here as con- structive for his passion for recording a solo album. He is also busy performing locally at venues such as Sir Guy's, where he and a new group, Roof Brain Chatter, pla3rbd last weekend. The trio includes Cullen, Daisey and local professional musician Keith Mack. Cullen will perform as a solo acoustic act Sunday, Nov. 1 !, at Sydney.'s Blues & Jazz Restaurant in Rehoboth Beach. An avid golfer, he also has gigs slated for the Poconos, Myrtle Beach and Orlando, with hopes of hitting the links during his visits. "The area just has such a great personality," continued Cullen. "It has great restaurants, and they are all different, and the people are so friendly here it reminds me of growing up in my hometown. I just consider myself really lucky to have found it." While pursuing his own profes- sional interests, Cullen is also making improvements to his home studio, with the hopes of offering it for use to other local musicians who want to record their material. Cullen also teach- es guitar. His solo CD is available at the Music Emporium in Fenwick Island, or by emailing him at king4day91 @msn.com.

RAL offers 'Fragments,' transformation of space Reception set Nov. 9 in the Corkran Gallery New York sculptor artist Amy Elizabeth is set to transform the Corkran Gallery at the Rehoboth Art League into a large scale, site specific installation titled "Fragments," set to open Nov. 9 and run through Dec. 20.

Throughout the Corkran Gallery viewers will experience Elizabeth's magic weave at work with one piece draping the gallery window while others create a tunnel/portal configuration or attempt to engage you on other levels. Artist Elizabeth's imaginative, unusual and sometimes daring of choice of materi- als - and her unique ways of combining them - will have galleryl gors chattering as they identify and reconsider things long familiar but seen in an altogether different context. Through labor intens;ive processes using common materials, her" work seeks to bal- ance a perceived vulnerrability and isolation with a sense of resoluti(on and protection. She produces her xwork with multiple with multiple materials examining the repetitive patterning she observes in nature, bringing order out of chaos. The work remains abstract enough to per- mit the viewer to bring their own life expe- riences to the process and find resolution on their own. The exhibit will be on view through Dec. 20. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and from noon to 4 p.m., Sunday. For more information, call Rehoboth Art League at 227-8408.
