Census Workers/ Ceramics Show/ Lionel Loueke/ Sound Advice


Census Workers The national census takes place every 10 years, with the aim of counting every person living in the United States. That's a big job and the Census Bureau hires hundreds of thousands of people to do the work. Today on Insight, Barbara Ferry, Senior Partnership and Outreach Specialist, tells you about the Census and what workers can expect.

Ceramics Show Ceramic art is one of the art forms the Sacramento area is best known for and that's due in large part to the works of Lee Kavaljian and Tony Natsoulas. Kavaljian is a professor emeritus in Biological Sciences at Sacramento State, as well as an artist. Natsoulas is a longtime artist who maintains a studio in Sacramento. Both artists are exhibiting their work in a new show in Sacramento that opens this weekend. You'll meet them both and hear about their work.

"Ceramic Sculpture" featuring the works of Lee Kavaljian and Tony Natsoulas opens Saturday, April 10th with a Second Saturday reception at Solomon Dubnick Gallery, 1017 25th St., Sacramento. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Information: (916) 444-3868.

Lionel Loueke Jazz guitarist Lionel Loueke was born in 1973 in the West African country of Benin. He moved to the Ivory Coast to study guitar and he eventually came to the U.S. to attend the Berklee School of Music. Loueke is performing a series of concerts at the Mondavi Center this weekend. You'll meet him and hear him perform live in our studio.

Lionel Loueke Trio performs at 8 p.m. today, April 8th; Friday, April 9th and Saturday, April 10th at the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre, Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts at UC Davis. Information: (866) 754-2787.
