Tatiana Hargreaves is making her mark on the world of old-time fiddling, and classical performance – and she’s still in high school in Corvallis. OREGON ART BEAT gives us a glimpse into her two musical worlds and introduces us her musically gifted family. Tune in to OPB TV Thursday, June 28 at 8pm.

They say you should write what you know. Artist Brian Vegter would say you should paint what you love! And he loves dogs.

And we’ll see how Brian and his wife, Corrine, who are New York transplants in Baker City, saw a need and used a little ingenuity to bring a tiny bit of the gallery scene to Eastern Oregon.

How do you “bend” a Speak-and-Spell? Find out, and meet the people who re-wire electronic toys and keyboards to create a new world of musical sounds.

A great place to keep up with ART BEAT is on Facebook (facebook.com/OregonArtBeat). And there’s more arts coverage on OPB’s Arts & Life page (opb.org/artsandlife), where new stories on the arts appear daily.
