Music, Art and Poetry at Studio One

The Studio One Art Center (365 45th Street) in the Temescal neighborhood, just up Telegraph, is expanding its regular First Fridays event. Starting at 6:30 p.m. on February 6, photographer Jennifer Ward will be presenting "Outside In: A New Oakland View," an exploration of the downtown's changing landscape in photos and spoken words. At 7:30 Paige Heimsoth, a local singer-songwriter will be performing. Here's a review of her new album, Paige, available on CD Baby.
"No fancy effects, nothing to hide behind. With this CD Paige has given us an intimate session in our own living room. Close your eyes and she is sitting right in front of you with only a guitar and a smoky, soulful voice. This CD was my first introduction to Paige, and she has left me longing for more. Every song is another window into her soul; writing, rhythm, and melody paint a more vivid picture than any visual medium could. I was a first time listener, now a faithful fan."
