An explanation and
apology for being a day late

had a few tests run at the [OMITTED] Medical Center and there were few things
that no one told me, which I find perplexing.
One of my tests was an eye
exam which included putting some drops in my eyes which really burned and caused
blurred vision that lasted for 5 hours, which is why I am doing this newsletter
today and not yesterday. I couldn't make out any written words and my shoes were
blurry. The funny thing is that when I booked this appointment no one told me
that this would happen or that perhaps I ought to arrange for a ride home. So I
apologize if I ran over any of you yesterday. If fate put you on my path home
then I guess you should look at it as a fate thing; you were meant to be run
over yesterday. Perhaps you should play the numbers on my license
Anyway, at my appointment Lindsay, the distracted (nice word for
distant, which is a nice word for not friendly) assistant who administered the
drops, asked crisply, "Do you want a tissue?" I could feel them running down my
cheeks so I accepted, thinking, since she can see them, why would she even ask?
As I blindly dabbed at my face I noticed the tissue was yellow in spots, which
is how I figured out that they were yellow drops. I wondered why she didn't
offer me a mirror like they do at the dentist, so I wouldn't walk around with
stuff on my face. But since she didn't offer I confidently assumed that I had
successfully removed all the yellow splotches with my single tissue, which is to
say that in reality I went totally paranoid and OCD and could only think about
the imaginary yellow spots on my face. Then they wanted me to choose frames for
my new glasses but I asked if I could come back when I could actually see them
(and not the imaginary spots on my face) and make a better decision.
I then went
on to the Phlebotomist (who was really nice) to have blood taken for other
tests, which included speaking to 3 receptionists, the phlebotomist, and the
checkout/billing person. Every time one of them asked me to sign a paper I told
them I couldn't see so they put a giant X and pointed me to the line so I could
sign. I got in my car and Mr. Magoo-ed my way home. Hours later as I brushed my
teeth for bed I looked in the mirror and realized I could finally see. And what
I saw was nearly perfect yellow raccoon circles around each eye and now I am mad
at everyone I saw yesterday for not telling me, except for the people I ran
Anyway-sorry this is late.

warning for the king", the Performance Project's newest work-in-progress, is a
contemporary myth based on themes from the Company-members' lives.
The title quotes an old proverb, "the silence of the people is a warning
for the king." The story is based upon Company members' belief that when one is
denied their voice, as an individual, or as a people, chaos will ensue. Through
spoken word, rap and monologue the cast confronts the impact of greed, racism,
addiction, and being silenced. The play expresses the urgency of speaking out
and recognizing that our fates are intertwined.

Highlighted in January are several
~~Alfredo's Gallery, 6 Crafts Avenue, is featuring black and
white photographs of Paris and New York in the 1930s and 1940s by master
photographer Fred Stein. In addition, the gallery is having a major sale of all
photographic art and wall decor in advance of its move to Suffield,
~~Smith College Museum of Art, Elm Street has a new exhibition,
“Beyond Green: Toward a Sustainable Art” that examines some of the ways in which
contemporary artists are exploring a socially and environmentally conscientious
– in other words, sustainable – way of living and working. As usual on Arts
Night Out, admission to the museum is free; there are activities for children
from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m. and, on this Arts Night Out, an opening celebration for
the "Beyond Green" exhibition, complete with a "Junk Music Concert."
~~Across Elm Street, at the Smith College Alumnae Association, where the
prints and paintings of Olwen O'Herlihy Dowling will be on view, there will be
an additional reception from 5 to 8 p.m.
~~A.P.E. Gallery Third Floor,
Thornes Marketplace, 150 Main Street, will have two shows. The first,
“Majuscules,” charcoal drawings by Jay Rathaus. The charcoal majuscules
(uppercase letters in calligraphy) act as a font pre-loaded with social and
political commentary. If each letter may be considered a fractured narrative,
then when placed together as words, they begin to resonate with the emergent
truths of our political world.
~~The second exhibition, “Will that be
all?” features new works by Teddy O’Connor, Ali Osborn and Raphy Griswold, three
recent graduates of Wesleyan University who majored in studio art and now live
in Northampton. Here, the three young artists are trying to come to grips with
the reality of working to support themselves while simultaneously finding time

drawings, prints, and mixed media in which all of their musings on these
questions will be revealed and exhibited.
~~ Northampton Center for the
Arts, 17 New South Street, third floor, is showing paintings by Robert Markey
that combine the visual and the conceptual. Markey says his work “often speaks
about hope, about humor and about the human condition: what it is and what it
could be—In my paintings, I work with layers of intense color, creating a
deep—almost primeval-feeling—space." (The reception here is from 5 to 7 p.m.)
~~Old Courthouse Gallery, 99 Main Street, has work of Rosemary Wessell
of Cummington— mixed media-plaster cast relief on canvas painted over with oils.
Plaster casts are of people; the remainder of the relief work is abstract,
depicting energies of the subject in the painting.
~~ Naked Art Gallery,
located in the Dance Northampton Studio, 492 Pleasant Street, continues its
exhibition of the works of Sherid Adams, “Mixed Medium.”
Gallery, 162 Main Street, continues showing the award-winning, hand-built
ceramics of Hayne Bayless, who describes his work, in part, as “everyday objects
that go beyond everyday use—How my pots work is at least as important to me as
how they look or how they feel."

donors for a $150.00 contribution. Most original artwork exhibited will also be
available for sale. Proceeds from the sale of the L/E print and original artwork

Painting workshops with Bob Markey in Febraury
Paintings by Robert Markey, which combine the visual and

Markey says his work “often speaks about hope,
about humor and about the human condition: what it is and what it could be. Much
of my earlier work was visually brutal, showing the suffering that one group of
people cause to another. My later work pushes this brutality beneath the
surface, showing more the beauty and hope that is possible.”

WHERE: Wistariahurst Museum
WHEN: Sunday, February 11, 2007
TIME: 3 p.m.
Chamber Music at Wistariahurst Concert Series
Presents Winter Light: An Afternoon of Gabriel Faure
Wistariahurst welcomes music lovers to spend the afternoon
in the intimate setting of Belle Skinner's Music Room on
Sunday, February 11 at 3 p.m. for a concert of Gabriel Faure.
Gabriel Faure's "Requiem" is one of the all-time favorite
pieces of classical music. Less well known is his chamber
music, which is equally rich in harmony, sensual and elegant.
This second concert in the "Chamber Music at Wistariahurst"
series will present leading Pioneer Valley musicians and
guest artists in a program that includes a rarely heard
setting of Faure's song cycle "La Bonne Chanson" with accompaniment
arranged for piano and string quartet, and featuring tenor
Peter W. Shea; noted pianists Nigel Boxe and Estela Olevsky,
in solo pieces and pieces for piano, four-hands; the harpist
Franzisk Huhn in "La chatelaine en sa tour"; and three choral
selections with the Schubertiad Chorus, directed by Jane
Hanson, including the well known "Pavane" and the "Cantique
de Jean Racine." Flutist Maria Scotera, mezzo-soprano Jane
and bass-baritone David Perkins will also participate in
several pieces, with Ed Rosser pianist. The program will
be given in period costume, with narration by Mr. Perkins.
A feast of "fin de siecle" music, of just the sort that
was enjoyed at the time Belle Skinner built her music room
at Wistariahurst, which provides the perfect setting. Tickets
Wistariahurst Museum is dedicated to preserving Holyoke's
history and inspiring an appreciation of history and culture
through educational programs, exhibits and special events.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Wistariahurst
is the former home of William Skinner, a prominent silk
manufacturer. The Museum is open for guided tours every
Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 12-4pm. For more information

LADIES BY DAVID BOWERMAN @ STCC A reception
to “Meet the Ladies” (and the artist) will be held on Wednesday, February 7 from
noon to 2:00 p.m.
Grand Ladies of Springfield to be featured in Art Exhibit at
Four grand ladies of Springfield will be honored in a
multi-ethnic art exhibit at Springfield Technical Community College during Black
History Month. “They have all arrived at who they are with a tremendous amount
of dignity,” says artist David Bowerman, who created the portraits. He noted
that all four ladies, who have been important to the life of Springfield and its
children, have had some relation to both teaching and to music.
ladies have been interviewed by students from Diane Mackie’s creative writing

Wednesday, 6 to 8 p.m.
Moss has been creating art since childhood. Her acrylic & collage paintings
reflect a dynamic process between color, form, emotion and intuitive directives
from within. Her work has been described as visionary & shamanic. “Painting
is a practice, intimately connected to my own breath & life. Continually a
student ~ I am humbled over and over, by the simplicity of authenticity-which
asks me to just show up, be real, and let go of the result.

trusting it unfolds from the present moment.

deepest level the work does not originate with the self, rather it is an
offering” ~ Lewis Hyde “The Gift
SMITH'S MOVIE PICS Dreamland
Directed by Jason Matzner, written by Tom Willett Starring Agnes
Bruckner as Audrey, Kelli Garner as Calista, John Corbett as Henry, Justin Long
This is a tight and exquisite first film by director Jason
Matzner. Mostly it is shot in a Nevada desert trailer park called Dreamland with
pale colours that suggest those in between places we find ourselves where we are
no longer who we were but are not yet who we will be, awaiting the catalyst that
will propel us from our lethargic uncertainty. It’s about 18 year old Audrey
(Agnes Bruckner) who has a habit of sacrificing her needs for those around her,
her father’s grief, her best friend’s illness, but who is forced to realize that
if she doesn’t take care of herself, she will have nothing more to offer. It’s
about how when we assume responsibility for who we are and what we truly need
than others are equally inspired to rise to higher places within themselves.
There is a simplicity and beauty to this film that leaves an indelible mark on
I want to invite anyone who sees a film that they think others on this list
might like to hear about to let me know. I welcome recommendations since as I
hope I’ve made clear elsewhere, I don’t see them all and I’m no
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If I can swing it,

Stone: Images of the Southwest" by Ms. Erin Kassis through Sunday, February 18.
Yesterday's Opening Reception drew 36 visitors under adverse weather conditions
and the New England Patriots game!
Erin Kassis is exhibiting (13)
thirteen black and white photographs created with her medium format film camera.
Dramatic scenes of the cliffs, mountains and the ever changing sky. A Smith
College freshman, Erin was the newspaper photo editor at Williston Academy. She
has won prizes for her artwork and has delivered several Gallery Talks. The
artist exposed and printed the images herself tin the traditional wet darkroom
to share her interpretation of our South West lands. She resides in Southampton.
"The images in Sky and Stone attempt to recreate the power that the
Southwest landscape holds. This beauty is the result of the extensive natural
history of the region. Each technical decision...to use a red filter to
highlight the contrast in the clouds or to alter the exposure to portray the
richness of the rock...was made to capture the emotion in these ancient places."
"She does much better work than I did when I was her age."
__Paul Wainwright, another former photography editor for the Willistonian and
winner of Photography's esteemed Lucie Award.
Henry, Photojournalist, former photographer for the Harvard Crimson and
collected in the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institution, the National
Archives and the Schlesinger Library.

The *Artist in Research*
program seeks to support artists involved in the early stages of projects that
require investigation, dialogue, and support from an artistic community. The AIR
Program is particularly interested in working with artists whose work explores
contemporary and experimental genres such as electronics, sound, installation,
performance, film, video, and other time-based media. The AIR Program supports
projects that have already been conceptualized, but need time, money and
critical feedback to complete.
This residency is most appropriate for
individuals or groups who wish to explore the potential for collaboration and
creative exchange with peers working in a wide range of media. Regularly
scheduled critiques, open studios, closing events and our web forum provide
residents with opportunities for critical feedback from curators, artists,
scholars and members of the public. Artists in Research are encouraged to focus
their efforts on exploration and the processes of innovative art-making rather
than the completion of a finished product.
Please visit the "AIR" section of
to learn more about past AIR artists and the
types of projects we are interested in and are able to support.

An offer from Joe
Blumenthal of Downtown Sounds who generously would like to have artists display
their work there. (Downtown Sounds, 21 Pleasant St., Northampton, next to the
Pleasant St. Theater)
The window is quite large, and has three panels,
each one about 6' X 6', and is about 24" deep. It is exposed to intense sunlight
in the morning; the heat of the sun plus the narrowness of the window make it
inappropriate to display most musical instruments.
However, the sunlight
doesn't hurt most artwork since it's only exposed for a month to six weeks. I
normally pay $150 to the artist who installs the window, and work out a
consignment agreement for the store to take a percentage of the price if the art
is for sale and we manage to sell some of it.
The artwork can be
freestanding, lean against a wall at the back of the window that's about three
feet high, or (if it's not heavy) be hung from the ceiling.
It's great when
the art can have a musical theme, but it's not necessary. Because of its highly
visible commercial location, the work should have a mainstream appeal and not
have themes which could be offensive. Small pieces don't work well since the
window is so large.
If one of your readers is interested in displaying
in this context, please have them contact me via email:
