Join us for an evening of Art and Music Featuring:
Anne Gavitt, Animal Art, Portrait and Illustration
Born in Kansas, and living for a time in Oklahoma, Anne grew up mostly in the Chicago area. She is a long-time resident of south Evanston (forty years) who has been drawing pictures since childhood. She is a member of Reba Place Fellowship, a Christian intentional community in Evanston, and Reba Place Church. She was trained as an illustrator at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, and has worked as a staff artist, illustrated several children’s books, produced greeting cards, and have done animal and human portraits on commission.
Her work is mainly pencil on paper, but also watercolor, ink, or charcoal.
Peter Demuth / Singer Songwriter
Peter has been writing original folk-pop music since 1972. He has played all over the world including New York, Liverpool, London, Zurich, Paris, Baltimore, Key West, and Chicago. During his life to date he has composed over 140 songs. Many of these tunes have been recorded on one of his seven CDs which include, The Hero Who Never Quits, The Lot of the Average Man, Somewhere in Spare Moments, The Test of Time, Watchwords, Noah, and 99 Whole Days. His major influences include the Beatles, especially John Lennon, the Bee Gees, the Rolling Stones, James Taylor, and Bob Dylan. The music is psychological in nature. It can be light or it can pull you under. It is sometimes biographical but usually has a connection to the universal. It attempts to make sense of some emotional pull, a past experience, or an existential challenge - always with the purpose of telling a story.
Peter works by day as a Clinical Psychologist & Jungian Analyst and currently resides in Evanston, Illinois (since 1998). He lives with his wife Karen (of 30 years) and his 17 y/o son Noah.
