Ron Hamrick

Ron has been playing keyboards since he was 5 years old, at first studying classical music. He switched to popular music in his teens and formed his first rock band when he was 14, performing at teen dances in and around his hometown, Niles, Michigan. He also started writing songs for the band a few years later.

In 1967, the band recorded his song “This Is the Time,” and it was picked up by major radio stations. The song became a #1 hit in May 1967. His band, The Sixth Generation, began being booked at major venues across the Upper Midwest, and also opened for major well-known bands of the time, such as The Buckinghams, Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels, The Boxtops, and others.

During college, traveling to venues became a problem and the band stopped playing in 1970.

After college, Ron started a career in the information technology industry that bought him to Virginia in 1984 and culminated with many years as a very successful senior executive and CEO of international companies. During these years, Ron did not do musical performances, but he did continue playing music privately.

After retiring from the business world, Ron again started performing at music venues in 2011, first with the reformed Sixth Generation for a few years, and since then as a Singer/Songwriter. He plays regularly at selected venues, and audiences are always extremely appreciative of his music. Ron is grateful that his music brings joy to the people in his audience. His aim is to touch the lives of people who listen to his music in a positive way.

Ron also returned to writing, recording, and publishing songs in 2011, with several making it to the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hit Singles chart. One of them, his song “Livin’ In a Small Town” made it to #2 on Billboard in 2015, only behind The Rolling Stones’ 50-year anniversary re-release of “Satisfaction.” Another hit, “Touch the Moon,” was considered for a Grammy nomination in 2017. In addition, there are numerous articles in various music industry publications praising Ron’s music.

Kary Haun Graphic

During the month of July, Kary Haun will have ceramic pottery on display in the tasting room.

In studying and working in ceramics for 30 years, I have always been fascinated by the complex problem of integrating three essential elements of ceramic design: form, surface, and function. 

What I love most about creating functional pieces of art is the vision of their usefulness. The idea of the viewer or user having a relationship with the piece that speaks to their love of food and drink whether pouring, serving or sipping. While I am creating my work, I am very concerned with its function. At the same time, I wish to elevate the experience of everyday life to something extraordinary.

Mike Caplanis

During the month of April, Mike Caplanis will have art on display in the tasting room.

A career in advertising was great for a man whose Big Life Plan was to eventually chuck it all and paint. I knew the day would come when there wouldn’t be a lot of choice in the matter and the “need” to paint would overcome the simple desire. Actually, that day came some years ago when I began to show and sell my work at L Ross, a pre-eminent little gallery in Memphis. Early success there allowed me to think that I could continue this change-up in careers, and so I have.

Doing what you are compelled to do has a bracing effect. There’s a great freedom in filling your hours with acts of creation, borrowing from nature and hoping that what results when the brushes and pens are set down, is something like a mark of the face of human history.

I can muse about that sort of thing when working because for this painter, painting itself is a strangely non-cognitive process. That is, I can fill my mind with things not related to the work, because the process is what’s doing the heavy-lifting.

I do very little planning before I begin a work and that’s key. I’m an impulse painter and all my drawing is very sketchy—get in, get it down, get out. My best work looks tossed off. It isn’t and I have to work very hard to get it to look that way.
