when you are about to move and it all seems so impossible

inner turmoil (such drama, I know), my dear Maren

to sing the synonyms for foment, the first of which

reprinted and paraphrased without permission...
"The quintessential representatives of Ukrainian folk
culture - pysanky, or Ukrainian Easter eggs
- are once again making an appearance at The Ukrainian
Museum. The Museum's pysanky exhibition will be on
view from March 25 to July 2, 2006.
Ukrainian pysanky have a legacy that dates back
to prehistoric times, when ancient people attempted
to understand and explain their greater and immediate
environment. The universe, the sun, the changing
seasons, birth, death - these were among the mysteries
that taxed the comprehension of people as they struggled
to find answers to the natural phenomena that governed
their daily lives. They developed myths to mollify
their fears of the unknown and appease the forces
over which they had no control. <--- How
As an example of the mystery of life itself, the egg
was considered enormously powerful. Ancient people
decorated the egg with symbols and colors that held
a special meaning and used it for numerous social
events and religious occasions, specifically in the
spring. Thus the egg became a precious talisman, believed
to have protective, magical properties. Prominent
examples of such potent symbolism can also be seen
in the pysanky on display as part of the Museum's
current exhibition The Tree of Life, the Sun, the
Goddess: Symbolic Motifs in Ukrainian Folk Art, which
runs through October 15, 2006.
The designs on pysanky are, for the most part, geometric,
with some plant and animal forms. The most prevalent
and recognized motif is the stylized symbol of the
sun, which appears as a triangle, a broken cross,
an eight-pointed rosette, or a star. Endless lines
symbolize eternity, while images of animal and bird
figures, such as a stag or a rooster, represent fertility
and strength. The introduction of Christianity to
Ukraine brought with it such elements as the cross,
the fish, and images of churches.
The art of creating Ukrainian pysanky (from the word
pysaty - to write) has been handed down from generation
to generation. Although most of the relevance of the
intricate designs and patterns, as well as the use
of specific colors, has been lost over time, decorating
pysanky and adhering to some of the customs associated
with this craft have remained a strong tradition among
the Ukrainian people to this day.
Pysanky are decorated using the wax-resist or dye
technique. The tool used to draw the design on the
egg is known as a kistka or ryl'tse. While the dyes
now used are chemical-based, not too long ago they
were made from natural sources, such as vegetables
or the bark of a tree. The colors used in pysanky
have symbolic meaning as well. For example, red is
the color of life, joy, or the sun, while yellow stands
for fertility and wealth.
Although present-day Ukrainians decorate pysanky and
exchange them in the traditional manner at Eastertime,
the eggs are considered works of art and are treasured
for their uniqueness and beauty. While no longer revered
or considered to be a talisman, Ukrainian pysanky
are still a magnificent example of the ingenuity and
artistry of Ukrainian folk culture.

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

the work of Luke Cavagnac.

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

hundreds a month.
This is a wonderful, joyful exhibit and is priced for everyone.

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!"

Identities and Archetypes
April 29, 2006, at STCC
Identities and Archetypes
28- April 29, 2006
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,

Challenge. The international competition recognizes scientists,
engineers, visualization specialists, and artists for producing

directions and equipped other citizens to see and understand
complex science concepts. Award categories: Photographs, Illustrations,
Interactive Media, Non-Interactive Media and Informational
Graphics. Winners in each category will be published in the
September 22, 2006 issue of Science Magazine and Science Online
