We are excited to have Minnesota musician Matt Hannah play from 11-1 in our outside music area at the corner of Broad and Main Streets, downtown Reinbeck. Festival Day is September 24, 2016.
“Singer-songwriter Matt Hannah hails from the Midwest, but spent time fronting a rock band in New York before he honed his acoustic, melancholy-country spin on Americana-folk music.” Mpls St Paul Magazine
Jago, a Waterloo native and critically acclaimed figure sculptor studied art at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Jago received a full scholarship to Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, where he obtained his fine arts degree. He began working at a foundry in northern Arizona producing fine art sculptures. He later became the pour master before being lured to Loveland, Colorado where he founded his own company, Preferred Finishing. He spent 10 years refining his skills and worked with many artists.
In the years that followed, Jago was employed in Monterey, Calif., hiring and training an artist’s staff in all phases of production. In the midst of the work, he suddenly realized he wanted to dedicate himself to creating his own artwork. Critics have described his work as “emotionally charged” and “some of the most fresh and innovative figurative work being done.”
Jago has been commissioned to create numerous sculptures in the Cedar Valley. His bronze sculpture of the former First Lady, Lou Henry Hoover, is located in the Lou Henry Hoover Sculpture Garden, the original site of the Henry family home in Waterloo, Ia. Other commissioned work in the Cedar Valley include a life-sized sculpture of Abraham Lincoln for Lincoln Elementary School, Cedar Falls, Ia; a larger than life-sized bust of Martin Luther King Jr. and life-sized sculpture of Dan Gabel for West High School, Waterloo, Ia.

Born and raised in small town Iowa in Benton County, I have always appreciated the beauty and detail of Iowa’s landscape, building, barns and animals. I am the youngest of four sisters whom are equally talented. I am self taught and have painted on and off for forty some years. Along the way I have dabbled in oils, charcoal, pastels, watercolor and gouache but my preferred medium is acrylics. I have displayed in numerous art shows from time to time. Currently I am semi-retired with a bit more time on my hands. Recently my sisters and I have decided to join together to display and sell our art work. We each have our own style and uniqueness. Our time together is very special. Even though we tease and poke fun at each other we have become our own best critiques, inspiration and support of each others work. I enjoy being able to create a painting and it is especially rewarding when someone will say how much it reminds them of when they were growing up on the farm or it was just like grandpa’s barn.The look on their face is priceless.
Recently retired, I wanted to try painting. I am inspired by Georgia O’Keefe. I credit my multi-talented family with encouraging me in my art pursuit. I am one of five creative sisters and my son is a choreographer that has performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. He is a photographer and Professor of Fine Arts in University of Minnesota.
I’ve always loved creating. I’m looking forward to showing my art at the Reinbeck Art Festival.
