OUT, ARTIST OPPORTUNITIES, LIZA, LICHEN AND NOD
As you can see, I abandoned the new format and have gone back to my first
answer, the original format.
I thought the anchor tags in the left column would
make it easier to find stuff but instead they made
the main column too thin and hard to read and everyone
had to scroll for days to read it all and they couldn't
do their work and everyone got fired and I had to
win the lottery and hire everyone to make up for it
and now I have so many *helpers* that we take turns
typing letters and there are so many people sitting
on my lap typing now that I can't think and I am having
a meltdown and so I had to go back to Plan A. Sigh.
So I am back to the old format. But the obsessive-compulsive in me wants
the navigation to be immediately intuitive and perfectly
ordered (I was in charge of web design/information
architecture in my other life, the one that paid).
so I am trying a new thing this week. I put the events
first, from most recent to less recent (to facilitate
adding new items) and then made a separate section
following with calls for artists.
So, now we have two sections: stuff to do and stuff
to apply for. (<--is that a dangling participle?
it's been so long) Note to self-learn to use moderation
in use of parentheses and asides.

From our pal, Kelsey Flynn.
As a matter of fact, if I get this newsletter out by midnight
I am going to post something about my new sculpture/mosaic
project, THE TRUTH BIDET, which is about truth, cleanliness,
narcissism, and the self-awareness raising exercises of the
70's, complete with mirroring in the bowl part of the bidet
(Special thanks to Hilary Price for the 70's remindery input).
Thanks to you all for continuing to get the word out on
Stories Northampton. I've received lots of feedback
over the past two months since the site launched. People
are making this public weblog a regular part of their online
day, stopping in to check on events, opinions, bear photos
and posting something of their own.
With the warm weather slowly taking over the Valley, folks
are getting out and about with their cameras and uploading
their pictures to Your Stories Northampton, which in turn
brings more people to the site. Photo galleries are some
of the most popular stops on MassLive.com. So please use
this boon to your advantage by getting your news and event
listings up in front of the visitors.
With your feedback, we've made the logging in and posting
process more smooth. With a couple of clicks, your post
is up on the front page of Your Stories Northampton. And
the more information you attach to it, i.e. your event's
Web site URL, E-mail address, the easier it is for interested
folks to be in touch.
Every Sunday, look for the Your Stories Northampton page
in the Republican's Hampshire / Franklin Counties pull-out
section. Each week I write a column highlighting certain
contributions and also spotlighting "hot ticket" events
that have posted over the past week.
There are still more innovations to come for Your Stories
Northampton so stop in often. I am committed to making this
site as dynamic and community-oriented as possible. Please
write with any feedback and ideas you have to make Your
Stories Northampton as hooked up as Myspace.com and as fun
as a carnival midway.
Zea Mays Printmaking
Studio at the NCA
FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 5 - 7
THE NORTHAMPTON CENTER FOR THE ARTS
A Community at Work - Zea Mays Printmaking Studio
APRIL 5 - 30, 2006
OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 5 - 7 PM
The Northampton Center For the Arts welcomes the new exhibit,
A Community at Work - Zea Mays Printmaking Studio, showcasing
the innovative work of 15 members of Zea Mays Printmaking
in Florence, MA.
Also on display in this exhibit, The Nature of Things, a handsome
print portfolio commemorating the early years of the studio.
Artists participating in the exhibit are: Meredith Broberg,
Caitlin Cali, Liz Chalfin, Stephanie Cramer, Tracy Ducasse,
Rachel Gugler, Anita S. Hunt, Kate Jenkins, Louise Kohrman,
Doris Madsen, Aaron Piziali, Joyce Silverstone, Rudy Ternbach,
Judith Wolf, and Diane Kazar Worth.
Mo Note: And what an exceptionally nice group of artists,
I might add. They always put on the nicest receptions! Beautiful
work, beautiful people.
The public is invited to attend an Opening Reception with
the artists on Friday, April 7 from 5 -7 pm, which coincides
with the Northampton Arts Night Out Gallery Walk.
The gallery is located on the 3rd floor of the Sullivan Building,
17 New South Street, Northampton, across from the Academy
of Music. Gallery hours are: Tuesday - Friday, 11 -4, and

Improvisational Quilts by Amy L. Wasserman and Drypoints
and Monotypes by Judith Wolf
April 2 - April 29, 2006
Reception: April 6, 5-8 pm
her improvisational quilts, Amy Wasserman combines fabric,
beads, buttons, and other assorted materials to create vibrant
and surprisingly playful fabric collages. Her imagery is
drawn from an interplay of old and new, through family photos
of her grandparents and other relatives from the past as
well as humorous photos of herself. To embellish and enhance
photographs, she draws with thread and paints with fabric,
using enticing patterns, textures, and colors. Amy lives
in Pelham. Her (paper) collage illustrations have appeared
on book covers, advertisements, in national magazines and
on taxicab windows.
For Judith Wolf, the printmaking process involves
a sense of mystery, emergence, and discovery. In her method
of creating reductive monotypes, the image gradually appears
on the plate. She begins with an inked plate of glass and
removes the areas of light.
In this way, the final picture emanates out of the remaining
ink. She also prints multiple layers on one piece of paper.
Subtle, faint reminiscences of color in the overlapped forms
evoke a variety of perspectives: stages of growth, memory,
and the passage of time. Most of the prints involve a close
observation of nature in the form of plants and landscapes.
Through drypoints, a process of incising marks into a plate,
she integrates a painterly approach with linear elements.
Ms. Wolf lives in Northampton. Her paintings and prints
have been exhibited in galleries in Jerusalem and throughout

Gallery is proud to announce the opening of 1000 Paintings,
the work of Luke Cavagnac.
While the focus in the past has been on Luke's reasonably,
even ridiculously priced paintings, a few moments with the
work make a convincing case that Luke is a very accomplished
Luke's wild, cartoon take on the world around him is a very
personal, creative expression enhanced by his accomplished
use of paint.
Luke comments on his speed, I've learned to stop before it
gets too ugly. And about his low prices, I'd like to sell
hundreds a month.
This is a wonderful, joyful exhibit and is priced for everyone.
Come and share Luke's vision.

April 8, and Saturday, April 22
Mandala Design Workshop led by syncretic mandala artist,
animator, and editorial cartoonist, E. J. Barnes, at Inspirit
Common at 123 Russell Street (Route 9) in Hadley, MA.
Both sessions 12:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Many traditions the world over combine symmetry and symbolism
to embody philosophical concepts. In the process of its creation,
the mandala generates an informational feedback loop between
the creator and the created. Sometimes, the process is so
much more important than the product that the final piece
is ritually destroyed after it is finished!
This rigorous 2-part workshop allows participants to construct
their own mandalas, based on traditional, cultural, and personal
Part I on April 8 is a presentation and discussion
of the history and symbolism of the mandala, broadly defined
to include Tantric yantras, Buddhist mandalas, European magical
talismans and alchemical engravings, Shaker gift drawings,
Vodoun vevers, and more. Discussion of the symbolic value
of number, shape, color, and direction will follow.
During Part II on April 22, workshop participants will
gather to design their own mandalas, either as a finished
piece in the workshop, or as preliminary work for a final
piece to be completed afterwards.
Price for the 2-part workshop is $85 payable to Inspirit Common.
Part I alone can be taken for $50, with the option of signing
up for Part II at the workshop.
Details are at the Inspirit Common website at www.InspiritCommon.com/mandala.htm
Please call (413) 585-1169 to pre-register. Registration is
limited to 20, so don't wait!
Instructor E. J. Barnes's syncretic mandalas were on display
at Amherst Crêpes in November 2004. Her animated film, "Leatherwing
Bat," was shown at the 2002 Northampton Independent Film Festival.

Even in heaven it seems, Karl Marx is a troublemaker! Embedded
in some secular afterlife, where intellectuals, artists
and radicals are sent, Marx is given permission by the administrative
committee to return to Soho, London to have his say. But
through a bureaucratic mix-up, he winds up in Soho, New
York. We see not only Marx the revolutionary philosopher,
but the intimate, vindictive and humorous Karl Marx. These
are his observations and commentaries about social injustice,
family issues, the collapse of the Soviet Union and modern
life in the world today! Marx declares "I am not a Marxist!"

environmental organization working to end the use of unaffordable
and dangerous nuclear power in the Northeast and replace

Identities and Archetypes
April 29, 2006, at STCC
Identities and Archetypes
March 28- April 29, 2006
Artists reception: Friday, March 31, 5- 7pm.
There is something primary about silhouettes. They have an
ability to conjure direct memories, feelings, yet they also
possess degrees of assumed veracity. Silhouettes are a form
of archetype: a universal armature onto which we hang our
personal history and subjectivity. Attaining the shape, we
are left to fill in the details, the story.
In this exhibit the artist Randal Thurston cuts shapes that
are at once familiar, yet are not simply copies of his subjects.
He carefully composes an assortment of forms that are both
individual and members of a larger organization. “I think
the most salient aspect of the silhouette is its versatile
ability to be a vessel for projected emotion.”
Paul Bloomfield’s work employs the silhouette while subjecting
it to the photographic process. “My work is an attempt at
recognizing commonality of form and its infinite variations.”
Portraits are recognizable as much by what they offer as by
what the viewer projects. In both the work of these artists,
identity is transient and rooted in history.
The Amy H. Carberry Fine Arts Gallery, located on the first
floor of Building 28, is open Tuesday through Friday,
12:30 to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. throughout
