“Drummer” and “Piper” by Wana Klasen.

A visual delight of dancers, singers and musicians are celebrating in Wana Klasen’s “EARTHSONG” solo show at the Harbor Village Gallery. This show runs from March 25 to April 27, 2009. Artist Reception is Friday, March 27, 2009 from 5 – 8pm.

Drums beating, hearts pounding, dancers weaving in and out of paint and canvas are Klasen’s world tribe “Earthsong.” Her colorful, energetic and imaginative figures suggest our ongoing dance…a dance with ever-changing steps and tempo. “Earthsong” is a joyful and whimsical invitation to dance, sing and celebrate our one tribe, one journey and one world.

Klasen is a self-taught artist whose eclectic interests are reflected in her diverse childhood memories: from southern Kentucky to the rugged landscapes and shorelines of Newfoundland to the serene ambience of Hawaii. She is a musician who has also taught beginning watercolor classes; she is a retired registered nurse who also has a Master of Arts in Education Administration.

Klasen has shown her art work in Ventura and Filmore ArtWalks, Moorpark Arts Festival, SeaBreeze Gallery, High Studio in Moorpark and the Westlake Village Art Guild. This is Klasen’s first solo show with the Buenaventura Art Association.
