Q 12A The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, September 27, 1990 Pizzeria Opens On Main In Downtown Union Chrystal Weikle prepares a spicy dish for a hungry customer. Union's newest downtown business is now open on Main Street next to Monroe Pharmacy. Mike's Pizza, familiar to residents of the Peter- stown area, has expanded to include Union. Owner Fred Williams said his store seats 20 persons, will eventually seat 30, and offers a variety of Italian foods and pizza. Plans call for the eventual addition of delivery service. Mr Williams' son Mike continues managing the Peterstown operation, which opened in 1988. Bob Thompson For Bi To top off TOOT (Carnegie Hall's annual Taste of Our Town celebration), the Bob Thompson Quartet will return for its second appearance in Lewisburg. Musi- cally, the Quartet draws on mod- em "jazz/fusion" styles as well as traditional jazz. Thompson is a native of Ja- maica, New York, appeared on the East Coast jazz scene with three early solo albums, in addi- tion to one with the group "Jot." Thompson's commercial break- through came in 1985, with his "7 IN - 7 OUT." That album was distributed independently and released on Thompson's own Rainbow Records in the U. S. and distributed in England by Polygram. 7 IN - 7 OUT featured longtime friend and musical as- sociate Omar Hakim on drums and introduced Thompson to a large new audience on both sides of the Atlantic. Later that year, he had a month-long tour of Brazil, where he worked as an artist in residence. Thompson's first album for Intlma, "Brother's Keeper," fur- ther established the pianist. The album featured Hakim on drums, as well as bassist Gerald Veasley, guitarist Kevin Eubanks, percussionist "Dec" Gibbs and violinist John Blake. Thompson's second lntima album, "Say What You Want," exposed him to a wider audi- ence. For his latest album "Wil- derness," Thompson decided to take a slightly different direction and use his regular touring band, rather than bringing in session players as he .had done in the past. "You're never really quite satisfied with your own re- cordings" says Thompson. "When you listen to them, you hear the things that you want to do, or things you wish you would have done. I've learned to relax a little bit. I used to have a lot of anxiety about that -- about trying to get to a certain point. Now I just try and enjoy the journey." Formally schooled in band instrumentation and influ- enced by such traditional jazz pianists as Oscar Peterson and contemporary players such as Herbie Hancock, Thompson has melded his many musical influ- ences into a unique style of jazz piano. In addition to numerous per- formances around the country, Thompson's experiences include arranging for the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, teaching contemporary music at the Uni- versity of Charleston and serving as Musical Director of the Char- leston Light Opera Guild. Performance time at Carnegie Hall is 8 p.m. Admission is $8 for adults and $7 for seniors and students. To reserve tickets, call 645-7917. Sponsors for this event are RIverbend Nursery and The First National Bank in Hen- ceverte.

Linda Hill, Department Ih'esi- dent says "We are especially proud of the program because the funds are used to support research and to help our mem- bers who have been stricken with cancer and to help defray their medical costs." Local Presi- dent Mary Crigger of #4484 said "Each year we help our state to reach the goal of $51.000 by making donations to the fund, part of this money is returned to us to make a donation to a Can- cer institution such as West Vir- ginia University in Morganiown. On the national level, three re- search fellowships are given each year in the amount of Raises Money For $20.000 each to post-doctoral candidates, and $75,000 is given , to various cancer research cen- ters such as Saint Judes Chiktren's Research Center.

Local Artists One Valley Bank A display of paintings by three local artists will be exhib- ited at One Valley Bank in Fairlea starting September 28. For one week, June P. Anderson, R.

Mrs Anderson's work can be seen in several West Virginia, museums and city halls, as she is known for her portrait work. She also has paintings on display at the Greenbrier Clinic and One Valley Bank. Mrs Anderson is known for her impressionistic style that is enhanced by her study of de- tail. Michael Christie's paintings have a more defined, tighter form and he is known for his unusual subject matter -- rang- ing from mysterious cave interi- ors to moody landscapes. Mr Christie also does po._rtraits and still lifes. His work is exhibited at the Centre Street Gallery in Winter Park, Florida and the John Pence Gallery in San Fran- cisco. Robert Anderson has exhib- ited in New York City, Winter Park and many other locations, including London. He has an ar- ray of collectors ranging from opera singers to surgeons.
