LIVE FROM ROSE RIDGE
Live from Rose Ridge is a stage variety show that will be recorded live at the historic Second Stage theater and broadcast on area radio station WIQO and is available by podcast.
Each show features musicians, storytellers, and voice artists that reflect the people of the region and the history of those people. It also serves as a mentorship to young people interested in these genres.
These programs are hosted by the talented Janet Rose, who is a local radio personality. Janet moved to the region in the 1990’s. Originally from Tennessee, she is a singer/songwriter who worked with Chip Young Studios in Nashville and opened for a number of prominent country artists in the 80’s and 90’s. Janet is dedicated to pouring into our community, sharing stories of family and heritage, and giving our local performers a platform to showcase their talents.

THE ART OF MAKING ART
The Art of Making Art workshop series is brought to you by local artist Glo Winters.
"I have loved art all of my life and have been drawing and creating art since I could hold a crayon. I believe creativity is a gift from the Great Creator and for some it comes out in the form of visual art - such as painting. Others create with words or food or build things. All of us are creative. Some artistic creatives have been stifled by the harsh or insensitive words of others and only need a positive art experience and a little encouragement to discover that gift has been there all the time, dormant but ready to sprout, grow and blossom in the right conditions. If you are drawn to creating art, then most likely you have the gift within you. Maybe you are already blooming in your art. Wherever you are, come join me in the Art of Making Art and let's flourish together!"
