The Theater Art Gallery NOVEMBER Reception/Show

November brings beautiful glass/metal pieces by JAN  FRINK and vibrant acrylic paintings by WALT  ZUKAS into The Theater Art Gallery in Yuba City. The Artist Reception is Thursday, November 7, from 5 - 7 pm. This event is free with complimentary refreshments. The art show and sale continues through November 30. Come and chat with the artists as you enjoy the artwork they created. The reception coincides with the Downtown Business Association’s First Thursday Stroll. The gallery is located next to the Sutter Theater at 756 Plumas Street, downtown Yuba City. Hours: Thurs - Sat, 12 to 5 pm. Wed by appointment. Call 908-5704 or 329-1733. Visit us at https://www.suttertheater.org/the-theater-gallery or on Facebook.

Believing that there is an artist waiting to emerge in all of us, JAN  FRINK began learning to fuse glass twelve years ago by taking weekly classes with Suzanne Gerttula in her studio in Woodland, CA. It sparked such a passion in her that Jan bought herself a kiln, set up her own studio, and started experimenting. She became more skillful by taking classes from Brian Helgerson at Sundance Art in Paradise, CA, where she learned about using recycled materials--bottles, windows, and waste glass from a glass blower. Next, she learned to weld metal from instructor Gina Rossi. At first she wanted to weld metal stands for her glasswork, but later on she began making glass for her metal sculptures. Jan is a glass artist, metal sculptor, yoga teacher, wife and mother of three who lives in Sutter, CA, with her husband and their dog and cat.

Self-taught landscape painter, WALT  ZUKAS, is an outdoorsman and enthusiastic fly fisherman. He began painting eighteen years ago using acrylic paints which dry more quickly and are more forgiving than oils. Walt’s wife, Judy, an art teacher for 38 years, was instrumental in teaching him painting techniques. Inspired to paint places he has visited--Alaska, Hawaii, the South and Midwest, and the East Coast--he says that his work reminds him of the wonderful adventures he had there. In painting, Walt is partial to sunrises and sunsets and using autumn colors. He also began wood and soapstone carving, and one of his wood-carved fish graces the wall of Point Comfort Lodge in Oregon.

The Theater Art Gallery is open every week, Thursday through Saturday, from noon to 5:00 pm, and Wednesday by appointment. Call 908-5704 or 329-1733. Proceeds from The Theater Art Gallery benefit the Sutter Performing Arts Association’s effort to renovate the Sutter Theater, turning it into a viable community center.  For more information, please visit our website at: https://www.suttertheater.org/the-theater-gallery  or visit us on Facebook.

Learn Electronic Fundamentals: Build a USB Charger

Learn Electronic Fundamentals: Build a USB Charger 

The name says it all: voltage regulator. The battery in your car that gets charged from the alternator, the outlet in your home that provides all the electricity you desire, the cell phone you likely keep on-hand every minute of the day they all require a specific voltage in order to function. Fluctuating outputs that jump from ±2V can cause inefficient operation and possibly even damage to your charging devices.

There's a variety of reasons why a voltage fluctuation may occur: condition of the power grid, other appliances turning off and on, time of day, environmental factors, etc.

Due to the need for a steady, constant voltage, enter the voltage regulator.
Almost every project includes a voltage regulator.  How do they work and what kinds are available?  Which one is right for your project?
Learn about voltage regulators and use one to build a USB charger.

Birding at Beale

This is a rare opportunity to look for birds across Beale Air Force Base's 23,000 acres.  Department of Defense facilities preserve some of the best remaining habitats in the U.S. and Beale is a great example.  The base includes one of the largest and best preserved areas of Central Valley grassland, a habitat under severe threat from urban development and conversion to agriculture elsewhere.  Two base biologists will accompany us as we search the grasslands for Burrowing Owls, Ferruginous and Rough-legged Hawks, and other raptor species, and most likely either Bald or Golden Eagles.  Falcons likely will include American Kestrel, Merlin, Peregrine and Prairie Falcon.  Horned Larks, Mute Swans and Western Meadowlarks should be abundant.Surprises like Mountain Bluebirds, tricolored blackbirds or Stellar's Jays are also possible this time of year.  We will also visit some large ponds that can harbor several species of waterfowl and an oak riparian zone with its own suite of typical species like Acorn and Lewis's woodpeckers.  Participants will caravan from Swan Central to the main gate of the base.  After being checked in base security, everybody will get into one large passenger van, so we can travel around the base together.  There will be a number of stops on base, including several short walks on flat ground.  If there's enough time, we may drive by some other points of interest on the base, including an SR71 Blackbird strategic reconnaissance aircraft that flew over Mach 3 to the UK in 2 hours!  Difficulty level is 2 (birding by car and walking)
Important note:  To gain access to the base, each adult participant must provide their full name birth date and driver's license number (including state of issuance).  Participants over the age of 16 must have a current photo ID to show base security personnel.  The driver of each vehicle entering the base must provide current vehicle registration and proof of insurance.
Be sure to bring your photo ID, driver's license and registration, if you are driving and binoculars.

Small Mountain Owls and Their Natural History

There are four species of small owls that inhabit the mountains of Colorado. These are the Boreal Owl, Northern Saw-wet owl, Northern Pygmy-Owl and the Flammulated Owl. All of these owls are cavity nesting species, and can be found nesting in close proximity to one another.
The Northern Pygmy-Owl is a 7-inch, diurnal owl that feeds upon voles, chipmunks and birds up to the size of American Robins and quail. The Flammulated Owl is about the same size and feeds primarily upon moths and other large insects. The Northern Saw-whetand Boreal Owls are in the same genius, and therefore look similar, and feed heavily upon mice and voles.
The Flammulated Owl is the only one of these that hoots. Both the Northern Pygmy-Owl and the Northern Saw-whet Owl’s give a series of whistled toots, and the Boreal Owl gives a snipe-like winnowing call.
Scott Rashid has been researching these owls for more than 20 years and has written the book Small Mountain Owls that details the natural history of these owls.
Scott will describe the natural history of each of these owls, including each of their courtship, nesting egg laying, feeding, fledging and post fledging activities of each species.
For example, Northern Pygmy-Owls are only active during the day and often prey upon nestling songbirds during the nesting season. Yes, they will actually go into the nests of other birds and take baby birds and deliver them to their own owlets. They are also capable of capturing,killing and carrying off birds and animals larger than themselves.
 The diminutive Flammulated Owl is a hard to find species, whose soft hoots are commonly overlooked, as they are so soft, that if you’re footsteps through the woods, may be louder than the call of the owl. These tiny predators can be completely insectivorous.
The Northern Saw-whet Owl calls with a series of incessant toots that can go on for over an hour in the spring as they are trying to attract a female. These birds are incredible mouse traps, as they prey upon deer mice and other small mammals in large numbers.
The largest of these, is the hard to find Boreal Owl. This species nests high in the spruce-fir forests, often above 9000 feet; and begins courtship when there is frequently several feet of snow on the ground, making them hard to find. Unlike the other small owls, Boreal Owls do not defend a territory, but rather only defend their nest tree.
Much of what Scott will discuss is information that he has uncovered about these secretive species.

The Barn Owl and the Great Horned Owl

Over the past 20 years, Barn Owl numbers have been declining in Northern Colorado. This decline is due to loss of habitat and nesting sites. Therefore, Scott Rashid along with a number of volunteers have been building and placing nest boxes for Barn Owls throughout most of Northern Colorado with great success. By watching the cameras, Scott has identified information about these owls that could not have been obtained any other way.
Scott will therefore be presenting much of his findings about these nocturnal predators during his presentation. Scott will discuss much of the natural history of the Barn Owl, including their courtship, incubation, egg laying, hatching dates, growth of their young, feeding fledging and post fledging activities.
For example, Scott has had a Barn owl banded in Colorado that was recovered in New York State and another banded in Colorado recovered in New Mexico. Also, Barn Owls are one of the most beneficial birds in North America, as they will feed entirely upon destructive voles, if there are enough voles present. They often bring back about 700 voles per nesting season and can raise as many as 10 owlets per nesting cycle.
He will also discuss the proper nest box size and placement for Barn Owl habitat.
Another owl Scott will be discussing is the Great Horned Owl. This is the largest and most powerful owl nesting in the lower 48 states. It is capable of capturing and killing birds and animals as large as Turkeys and geese, but prefers to prey upon rabbits, hares and rats, when available.
Scott has been working with Great Horned Owls for more than 30 years and has written the book The
Great Horned Owl an in-depth Study.
During this portion of the presentation you will learn about the courtship, nesting, egg laying etc. of this species as well.
Both species frequently nest in close proximity to one another, and can do so with no interaction, if the prey base is high enough. Yet at other times, the larger great horned will kill and eat the Barn Owls.
During the presentation you will see documentation of proof of both situations.
Scott has live cameras on both barn Owl and Great Horned owl nests and he will show video of both species during their respective nesting seasons.

Birding at Beale

This is a rare opportunity to look for birds across Beale Air Force Base's 23,000 acres.  Department of Defense facilities preserve some of the best remaining habitats in the U.S. and Beale is a great example.  The base includes one of the largest and best preserved areas of Central Valley grassland, a habitat under severe threat from urban development and conversion to agriculture elsewhere.  Two base biologists will accompany us as we search the grasslands for Burrowing Owls, Ferruginous and Rough-legged Hawks, and other raptor species, and most likely either Bald or Golden Eagles.  Falcons likely will include American Kestrel, Merlin, Peregrine and Prairie Falcon.  Horned Larks, Mute Swans and Western Meadowlarks should be abundant.Surprises like Mountain Bluebirds, tricolored blackbirds or Stellar's Jays are also possible this time of year.  We will also visit some large ponds that can harbor several species of waterfowl and an oak riparian zone with its own suite of typical species like Acorn and Lewis's woodpeckers.  Participants will caravan from Swan Central to the main gate of the base.  After being checked in base security, everybody will get into one large passenger van, so we can travel around the base together.  There will be a number of stops on base, including several short walks on flat ground.  If there's enough time, we may drive by some other points of interest on the base, including an SR71 Blackbird strategic reconnaissance aircraft that flew over Mach 3 to the UK in 2 hours!  Difficulty level is 2 (birding by car and walking)
Important note:  To gain access to the base, each adult participant must provide their full name birth date and driver's license number (including state of issuance).  Participants over the age of 16 must have a current photo ID to show base security personnel.  The driver of each vehicle entering the base must provide current vehicle registration and proof of insurance.
Be sure to bring your photo ID, driver's license and registration, if you are driving and binoculars.

Meet at Swan Central and carpool to Beale Air Force Base.  Duration of this tour is 4.5 hours and driving is 10 miles each way.

Budding Birders Bingo (Birdwatching for Kids)

Kids love getting out and exploring nature!  Birdwatching is a wonderful way for kids to do that.  This trip will focus on the basics of birdwatching, while playing Budding Birders Bingo at a birding site just a short drive from Swan Central!  Fun prizes will be awarded to participants!  The children will learn what to look for on a bird that can be used as field marks and learn a bit about bird behavior.  Your kids will get a chance to look through a spotting scope, binoculars (we'll have a few to loan out), and field guides.  They can practice identifying some of the common species we'll see and then mark them off on their bingo cards.  They'll also learn some fun facts about these birds and be challenged to see how many species they can identify.  We've never met a kid who doesn't like a new and exciting challenge!
Meet at Swan Central and drive with chaperones to site.  Duration of this trip is 2 hours.

The Barn Owl and the Great Horned Owl

Over the past 20 years, Barn Owl numbers have been declining in Northern Colorado. This decline is due to loss of habitat and nesting sites. Therefore, Scott Rashid along with a number of volunteers have been building and placing nest boxes for Barn Owls throughout most of Northern Colorado with great success. By watching the cameras, Scott has identified information about these owls that could not have been obtained any other way.
Scott will therefore be presenting much of his findings about these nocturnal predators during his presentation. Scott will discuss much of the natural history of the Barn Owl, including their courtship, incubation, egg laying, hatching dates, growth of their young, feeding fledging and post fledging activities.
For example, Scott has had a Barn owl banded in Colorado that was recovered in New York State and another banded in Colorado recovered in New Mexico. Also, Barn Owls are one of the most beneficial birds in North America, as they will feed entirely upon destructive voles, if there are enough voles present. They often bring back about 700 voles per nesting season and can raise as many as 10 owlets per nesting cycle.
He will also discuss the proper nest box size and placement for Barn Owl habitat.
Another owl Scott will be discussing is the Great Horned Owl. This is the largest and most powerful owl nesting in the lower 48 states. It is capable of capturing and killing birds and animals as large as Turkeys and geese, but prefers to prey upon rabbits, hares and rats, when available.
Scott has been working with Great Horned Owls for more than 30 years and has written the book The
Great Horned Owl an in-depth Study.
During this portion of the presentation you will learn about the courtship, nesting, egg laying etc. of this species as well.
Both species frequently nest in close proximity to one another, and can do so with no interaction, if the prey base is high enough. Yet at other times, the larger great horned will kill and eat the Barn Owls.
During the presentation you will see documentation of proof of both situations.
Scott has live cameras on both barn Owl and Great Horned owl nests and he will show video of both species during their respective nesting seasons.

Gray Lodge Wildlife Area - Sunset Flyoff Spectacle

Gray Lodge Wildlife Area is a jewel in the crown of the CA Department of Fish and Wildlife.  More than a million waterfowl can't be wrong!  Gray Lodge's habitat diversity and location along the Pacific Flyway make it a magnet for ducks, geese, and other wildlife.  Surrounded by miles of rich agricultural land, this 9,100-acre area is intensively managed primarily for wintering waterfowl.  The Sutter Buttes make a perfect backdrop for the wetlands in which the birds congregate.  this is a great trip to see several raptor species, lots of wading birds and songbirds in the riparian vegetation. We will take a short walk through the wetlands and woodlands, to an observation platform with views of huge flocks of waterfowl.  Then we'll travel around the one-way auto loop, which has great views of the wetlands and waterfowl from both sides of the vehicles.  And, for the grand finale, Roger will get the group situated in just the right spot to enjoy one of North America's great wildlife spectacles - the evening flyoff at Gray Lodge.  At sunset, hundreds of thousands of ducks and geese will take off against the sunset sky!  The perfect way to end your day of birding!
Be sure to bring binoculars.

Art & Oysters

“Art & Oysters” is back this year and promises to be even bigger and better than ever; more oysters, more music, more art. A collaboration between Yuba Sutter Arts and South Yuba County Rotary, Art & Oysters will be held on Sunday November 10th from 4 - 8pm. 
 
The location will once again be Justin’s Kitchen, 628 Plumas Street in Yuba City. Tickets are $40 each or two for $75 in advance.  Tickets at the door, if available, will be $50 each.  Admission includes all you can eat oysters and side dishes.  Tickets are available online at yubasutterarts.org and in person at Yuba Sutter Arts’ offices in Marysville.  The event is limited to the first 100 guests so do not delay if planning to attend. The live music, art, atmosphere and great company are all included.  Proceeds from the event will benefit youth education and arts programs in Sutter and Yuba Counties.
 
So, what might one expect at an event titled “Art & Oysters” you ask?  This year there will be multiple oyster stations serving over 800 oysters.  You can select from barbequed, “Rockefellered,” or on the half shell oysters without the long wait times.  The oysters will include Justin’s selection of the finest oysters from the north coast with a special selection of his unique sauces and mignonettes.  And for those who don’t yet have their “oyster legs,” chicken and a wonderful array of side dishes will be available.  “He was a bold man that first ate an oyster,” or so said author Jonathan Swift who wrote “Gulliver’s Travels.”  No boldness will be required at Art & Oysters.
 
Live music will be provided by the Grover Anderson Ensemble from Calaveras County with a selection of original songs and covers of popular music. And what about the “art” in Art & Oysters?  Our featured artist this year will be Pam Nowak who just completed a gallery show at the Theater Gallery. Pam will present “Pam on Paper,” past and new works in mixed media on paper including watercolor, pen and ink and color pencil.
 
There will be hand-painted oyster holiday ornaments in addition to oyster wreaths, oyster frames, oyster with succulents, oyster candleholders and other custom oyster-inspired creations all available in time for holiday gift giving.

Come support a great seasonal community event with a special twist.  And remember, just like in the “Oyster and the Carpenter” by Lewis Carroll, “O Oysters,' said the Carpenter, you've had a pleasant run!  Shall we be trotting home again?  But answer came there none — And this was scarcely odd, because they'd eaten every one."

A Hand Full of Keys - Piano Bar

For those who may have never had the experience of hearing music at a piano bar, it consists of a piano or electric keyboard played by a professional musician, located in a cocktail loungebarhotel lobby, restaurant, or on a cruise ship.  Usually the pianist receives a small salary plus tips in a jar or basket on or near the piano, especially from patrons requesting a song traditionally written on a beverage napkin.  
 
In this case, Yuba Sutter Arts will be converting the Burrows Theater into a piano bar for one evening. Not one, but two pianists will be featured; the incomparable Gay Galvin and the legendary John Paris.   You will have the option to sit on stage, in the theater seats or even right up next to the pianists to make your song requests.  Napkins will be provided.
 
This unique event is happening on Saturday, November 16 from 6-8:30 and will feature heavy appetizers, a no host bar (including Martinis) and loads of fun.  Purchase tickets at the early bird discounted price of $15 by November 15 or $20 at the door.  For tickets, call 530-742-2787 or to purchase online go to yubasutterarts.org. The Burrows Theater at Yuba Sutter Arts is located at 630 E Street in Marysville.
 
Gay is trained in classical and jazz styles and has worked in big bands, musicals, jazz trios and classical ensembles. She has a master’s degree in piano performance in jazz and performs as a soloist and with her jazz trio all over northern California.
 
John has enjoyed an extensive musical career working with the likes of Merv Griffin, Jerry Lewis, the Minneapolis Symphony and the Moody Blues. Jazz runs through his veins and he even had his own show band in Las Vegas for many years.
 
Theatre historian John Kenrick describes the piano bar as “a hybrid creature: part performance space, part living room, and part saloon. The bar is there to sell drinks, the pianist is there to perform, and the crowd is there to sing, listen, drink and socialize. All of this means that it's impossible to predict what a given evening's chemistry will be, even if most of the people on hand are regular customers.  While every factor counts, the most important issue is the person at the piano. The pianist determines the type of music, the style of performance, and the general tone of the evening.... The experienced piano bar player knows how to take genial control of most any situation and generally keep the party going.”
 
Come join the party on November 16 and enjoy live music by two master pianists up close and personal at the Burrows Theater Piano Bar for one night only.   Call (530) 742-ARTS with any questions.

Multi-Stringed Guitar Ensemble


What’s better than one world class guitarist playing a six-string classical guitar?  Seven classical guitarists playing a total of 52 strings, that’s what.  Fortunately, The Multi-String Guitar Ensemble have been playing together for some so there won’t be any professional rivalry exhibited on stage.   It’s kind of like that old joke: “How many classical guitarists does it take to change a light bulb?  Answer - Ten.  One to change the bulb and nine to tell you how they would have done it better.”
 
Yuba Sutter Arts wants to help change the way you think about classical guitar. The community is in for a treat when it welcomes The Multi-String Guitar Ensemble to its Burrows Theater stage on Sunday, November 24th at 2pm.  Admission is only $15, and students may attend for free. The address is 624 E Street in Marysville.
 
This concert will showcase the rich sounds of some very unique instruments; 7- and 11-string guitars that expand the beauty of the classical guitar aesthetic. The program includes original compositions and arrangements of timeless jazz, and pop and some classical masterworks as well for various combinations of instruments and voice from solo to septet. The program will be diverse, eclectic, philosophical and maybe even a little educational.  You might even hear a Beatles tune or two.
 
The Multi-String Guitar Ensemble includes musicians Robert Camilo – alto extended 7-string guitar, Matthew Foley – extended 7-string guitar, Matthew Grasso – extended 7-string guitar, Miyan Grasso - extended 7-string guitar, Sean O’Connor – 11-string alto guitar, Harry Stoddard – 7-string guitar, Aya Ueda – soprano and mezzo guitar.
 
Founding member, Matthew Grasso, is a classical guitarist, composer and arranger, a musical instrument innovator and improviser who began playing guitar at the age of twelve.  He attended the San Francisco Conservatory where he studied with Scott Tennant and Dusan Bogdonovic and was in master classes with Eliot Fisk and the L.A. Guitar Quartet.  Mathew further complemented his training by studying the classical music of North India at the Ali Akbar College of Music with the late sarod master Ustad Ali Akbar Khan.  Currently, Matthew is on the faculty at Sacramento City College, Yuba Community College and American River College and teaches privately as well.
 
Matthew says, “One performance is worth ten lessons.  And you must love every note you play, whether a simple exercise, a single note or a composition…it is all the same.”

A Tuna Christmas

So what the heck is “A Tuna Christmas” anyway. For starters, it is a very funny play with two actors portraying all 22 citizens of Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal, and Patsy Cline never dies! It’s 24 hours before Christmas and the delightfully eccentric characters are attempting to cope with seasonal traumas such as a disaster prone little theatre production of “A Christmas Carol,” and a highly competitive yard-decorating contest being sabotaged by a mysterious Christmas phantom who has been vandalizing the displays.

The Yuba Sutter Arts production of “A Tuna Christmas” will be performed at the Burrows Theater, 630 E Street in Marysville. Opening night is Friday November 29 at 7pm. There will be additional performances on November 30, December 6 and 7 at 7pm with matinee performances on December 1 and December 8 starting at 2pm. General admission tickets are $20. Students 18 and under are free with a paid adult admission. Light refreshments and beverages will be available.

“A Tuna Christmas” is the second in a series of comedic plays (preceded by “Greater Tuna” and followed by “Red, White and Tuna” and “Tuna Does Vegas”), each set in the tiny fictional town of Tuna, Texas. Written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard, the plays are at once an affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes but also a withering satire of same.

“A Tuna Christmas” stars a powerhouse duo of local testosterone-laden talent, Jeff Graham and Travis Leonard, who will also explore their feminine sides as they portray a gender and age bending array of female as well as male characters both young and old. The production is under the thoughtful direction of the very talented Gail Carter, whose work both on and off local stages has been enjoyed by the community for years.

Jeff Graham has appeared on local stages for longer than he can remember. He relies on his innate acting ability as well as physical humor to engage with audiences. “Heck, sometimes I just walk out on stage and stand up to my full 6’ ‘oh my God! Height’ and people just laugh,” he said.

Travis Leonard has been a regular featured player in both Acting Company productions as well as the Applause! series at Yuba Sutter Arts. Most recently he appeared in the show “Twisted” and brought the house down with his alternative rendition of Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!”

Jeff and Travis will have their hands full as they do split second costume changes in order to portray characters like Didi Snavely, the owner of Didi’s Used Weapons (“If we can’t kill it, it’s immortal”), Stanley Bumiller, an aspiring taxidermist fresh from reform school, Vera Carp, town snob and leader of the Smut-Snatchers of the New Order (“until the Rev. Spikes gets out of prison”), Elmer Watkins, the victim of a tragic flamethrower incident and Pearl Burras, a riveter in Houston during the War (the Japanese “never sank one of [her] ships!”)

A review in the New York Post said, “This play is so funny it could make a racoon laugh affectionately at Davy Crockett […] It’s far too good for just Christmas.”
