Gregory Page

Love will be in the air this weekend at the Ocotillo Performing Arts Center.

The OPAC will provide a full evening for couples and individuals alike Saturday, Feb. 11, beginning at 5:30 p.m. with an art showing by Cheyenne Hewitt.

The showing will be Hewitt’s first, beginning with a reception with refreshments provided by The Dessert Studio. Hewitt, who hails from Roswell and has attended the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, where she currently resides, has studied studio art and works in basic oils on canvas and primed paper with oils and watercolor.

After enjoying the art, attendees can make their way into the theater for a performance by Gregory Page, an Irish-American musician who creates oddly compelling songs that observe life and capture it in a realistic, sensitive and humorous way.

Page, the son of an Irish mother, was born and grew up in North London. In 1976, under cover of darkness, he “escaped from London” and made his way to America.

Page’s show is set to begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 each and may be purchased online at www.artesiaartscouncil.com or at the OPAC Box Office, 746-4212.

“But the treats have just begun, because at intermission, all ticket holders will receive a glass of wine and a small gift from the Artesia Arts Council,” said Laurie Schotz, AAC executive director. “Gregory Page will finish with an acoustic set to round off the evening.

“Happy Valentine’s Day!”
