|THE RUSH JOB
ISSUE, BUT WITH COOL STUFF!
FRAUGHT WITH ERRORS,
ANXIETY EMISSIONS AND HASTY EDITS.
I am packing to move, among other things, and as I have no
antidote for the moving frame of mind, this newsletter is
rushed, flawed, folded, spindled and mutilated.
BUT, albeit rushed, there are still a lot of fab events and
I did manage to hastily paste them in.
I also wanted to rush it out because Gallery A3 has a meeting
TONIGHT for potential new members.
I'll be back next week sans that scary, crazed look in my

there was actually an air

Media Announces Preview Massachusetts
A New Arts
and Lifestyle Magazine for Western Massachusetts
Media Announces Preview Massachusetts,
a New Arts and Lifestyle Magazine for Western Massachusetts
New Mass. Media, Inc., publishers of the Advocate chain of
alternative newsweeklies, announce the publication of a new
monthly magazine covering the arts, culture and life of Western
Crisply designed, Preview Massachusetts will be the region’s
first full-color, glossy monthly and will present a mix of
editorial content including a six- week event calendar and
rich mix of regular monthly features. Based on New Mass. Media’s
existing successful title, Preview Connecticut, the Massachusetts
edition will serve as a complement to the extensive listings,
news and features that appear weekly in the Valley Advocate
www.valleyadvocate.com). Preview Massachusetts will also
be available on the web at www.previewmass.com.
The 48-page May issue will be distributed on April 28th.
With an initial circulation of 30,000, Preview Massachusetts
will be available for free at select finer retailers, restaurants,
arts venues and hotels in Berkshire, Hampden, Hampshire and
Franklin counties in Western Massachusetts. The magazine will
also be home delivered to Hartford Courant subscribers in
Northern Connecticut and Hampden County.
“We’ve seen strong, steady growth both in advertising revenue
and an increasingly expanding receptive audience for Preview
Connecticut over the last four years, “ said Janet Reynolds,
group publisher of the Hartford and Valley Advocate and both
Preview titles. “We saw this as the time to expand on success
with this launch.”
“People’s leisure time has changed over the last decade,”
she continued. “It used to be that only ‘foodies’ would drive
an hour to search out an excellent restaurant for dinner –
now many more people will do just that. We saw a great opportunity
to provide a publication to that adventurous audience that
gets in their cars and seeks out the best that Western Massachusetts
has to offer.”
The cover of the premiere issue features an interview with
global artist/local resident Kim Gordon, bass and guitar player
in the legendary rock/experimental & punk band Sonic Youth.
Also included in the first issue’s arts coverage are profiles
of Shakespeare & Co.’s Elizabeth Aspenleider, glassblower
Josh Simpson and a peek at “Dutch Treats” at the Eric Carle
Museum of Picture Book Art.
Also in the May issue, Preview Massachusetts’s music writers
take a look at the Pioneer Valley Symphony Orchestra and surf-rock
veteran Dick Dale. Caroline Pam goes on a field trip to the
Blue Heron Restaurant in Sunderland to see why it is one of
the region’s prime food destinations. The first appearances
of monthly columns on wine, health and wellness, finance,
cars and homes in the region round out the offerings.
New Mass. Media, Inc. has been the leading alternative publisher
in Western Massachusetts and Connecticut for over 30 years.
Through its four alternative newsweeklies (Valley, Hartford
& New Haven Advocate, Fairfield County Weekly) two magazine
titles (Preview Connecticut and Preview Massachusetts) and
theater program publishing, NMM publications circulate close
to 1M copies monthly and deliver a totally unique media footprint
that reaches from Southern Vermont to New York City. More

From 5-8pm, seven different Eastworks galleries will be
exhibiting new work.
Animal Magic will close May 27th. An off-site closing performance
featuring Jason Martin's Evolution Revolution, Tumblecat Poof
Poofy Poof and other animal sounds is in the works. More info
Animal Magic is a group show featuring work by Joseph Segal,
Roland Lusk, Seth Scriver, Bwana Spoons, Joshua Vrysen, Jessica
Williams, Diane Cluck, Jamie Mohr, Michele Bond, Shaun Kessler,
Courtney Raiph, Chase Carlisle, Beverly Shana Palmer, Jesse
Clark, Jesse Goldstein, Kristen Lupoli and Jason Martin.
While at least two animal focused group art shows have taken
place in Western Massachusetts over the last year (Becoming
Animal at MASS MoCA last spring and very recently, Animal
Kingdom at W. M. Baczek Fine Arts) the artists in Animal Magic
have a very different vision to share with you. While most
of the artists in Becoming Animal looked with fear towards
a dystopian future where the gap between animals and humans
would diminish in the military, scientific and technological
realms, the artists of Animal Magic earnestly preserve a primitive,
often shamanistic world where animals maintain their integrity
Bwana Spoons looks to the past and resurrects a woolly mammoth
walking through an enchanted land of blossom crystals.
Jason Martin, a man who dons a wolf mask and tail when performing
with his band Evolution Revolution, presents his personal
mythology, a mix of ancient Egyptian magic, totemism and furry
fandom, in a well- researched book and CD. He begs his audience
to "find their tail" and use their animal spirit to "smash
Unlike many of their self-conscious contemporaries, the artists
exhibiting in Animal Magic are not inhibited by the anthropomorphobic
need to eschew sincerity and emotion when discussing animals.
While many postmodern artists see an impending technocracy
under which animals will be assimilated further into the human
kingdom and humans will lose the qualities that distinguish
them from beasts, the artists in Animal Magic conjure these
beasts to help us find what we have already lost.

New! Due May 15 - The Northampton Arts Council Announces
Arts EZ Spring '06 Grant Opportunity.
The Northampton Arts Council, Inc. is once again running a
special, locally supported arts grant round. This spring the
Arts Council will be distributing up to $25,000 from funds
that were raised at last summer's Transperformance 15: New
York and the recent Four Sundays in February ’06 series featuring
saxophonist David “Fathead” Newman and singer Cynthia Scott.
These grants are available to writers, painters, photographers,
sculptors, musicians, videographers and all other creatives
and arts organizations for projects held in Northampton.
Guidelines and applications are available via our website:
and can be downloaded as PDF’s. Using the PDF application,
one can complete the application on a computer (no more struggling
to find a typewriter!).
Hard copies of the guidelines and applications are also available
in Northampton at Guild Art Supply, Center for the Arts
Northampton, A.P.E., on the 3rd floor in Thornes and the Northampton
Arts Council office, Room 5, 240 Main St.
Completed applications with support materials must be received
by 4:30 pm on Monday, May 15, 2006 at the Northampton Arts
Because this is a locally funded cycle, we have eliminated
as much of the paperwork as we can. To that end we have developed
Arts EZ Spring 2006 Application Form. This is a one-page form
with 3 short questions and a required project budget. Individual
artists and arts organizations will receive equal consideration
for grants. Only one grant application per person or organization
will be considered. See the Arts EZ Spring 2006 Guidelines
for criteria and eligibility requirements. The Arts Council
will fund projects that take place between July 1, 2006 and
June 30, 2007.
This local round of funding would not have been possible without
the support of many local businesses, arts organizations,
and artists that have helped make our fundraising efforts
a huge success.

each week by actually clicking on it and looking it over-yes,
my stats tell me if people actually open their newsletters)
you can have a link here. We are all in this thing together
so let's support each other. I can do this tonight as I just
got the stitches out of my fingers! I will find a better place
for it later but for now it will be in this box. And it's
late and I have the radio show in the morning so I just started
with a few. I will post more as I get them and find a better
spot for them.

So I feel kinda sheepish about it but I finally
added a link
to make a donation to the newsletter
So many people have asked for a way to make a donation
other than putting a check in the mail or handing
me bags of cash at events so I finally set up my
pay pal account to accept all forms of currency.
I can't put the button right here yet because the
form script conflicts with the code for this page
BUT I added it (sheepishly) on my site so here is
the link to that: www.moringey.com
Thanks to everyone who asked me to set this up so
they could throw something in the jar. It took a
while because of the sheepish thing. I feel like
Little Mo Sheep. Hopefully soon enough I can sort
out the code and put the button right in this snazzy
little box. But for now it is just one click away!
