Not an editorial,
just useless observations
Sunday I witnessed
the aftermath of a tragic accident and the pulling of a
car from the first canal in Holyoke and dutifully posted
my pics etc on local.masslive.com.
As many of you may know, local.masslive
is a place where you can post anything you want to share.
As a matter of fact, YOU ALL should be posting your
art events there as well as here as they get the same if
not more traffic than my newsletter and it too is FREE.
Anyway, I went back to local.masslive later and noticed
an unfortunate juxtaposition; above my post is another post
AP WIREPHOTO-Northampton Shoppers enjoy tax-holiday
Evidently the nopornnorthampton.com
group which opposes the proposed porn shop here in paradise
city has a new opponent opportunistically playing off their
domain name called (trumpet sound)--- mopornnorthampton!
So, because of the unfortunate juxtaposition, I want to
state that I have not stated an opinion on this matter because
I don't have opinions because I am always wrong and now
I am going senile to boot. BUT, Why not just order porn
online like I order all my adhesives and stains? Then you
don't have to be seen walking into a porn shop anyway. What
if nosy people snapped your pics with camera phones and
such as you walked into the proposed King Street porn shop
and posted them on local.masslive.com with the caption,
"shoppers enjoy fall weather" or, "mullets back in style"
or some other faux innocuous comment?
That's what I'd probably do if I lived nearby and had kids
and all that, being kinda mischievous (obnoxious), in a
faux innocent way.
But I do believe in freedom of speech and all that and certainly
a healthy and fair debate over such issues is the way to
sort them out. I just hated the juxtaposition of that headline
over my headline with, "Car crashes into Canal, posted by
MO" right below. Unfortunate timing? Coincidence?? Who knows.
the beginning of the internet the porn folks have been brilliantly
opportunistic trendsetters. If you wanted to go to the Whitehouse
site and typed in whitehouse.com because you didn't know
about the .gov extension, you got hard core porn. And so
Before spiders were sophisticated enough to validate actual
content against metatags, a search such as, "free fonts"
or "free animated gifs" would bring you to...PORN! And so
on and so porn.
Actually, looking back, the early days of the internet were
kinda like a lawless frontier and were pretty hilarious.
My favorite story, from the very first days on ebay, was
when the 11 year old Pennsylvania boy bid on and won an
entire dental office in Florida including office, equipment,
hygienists and assistants. He claimed he thought it was
just a game. A game where you win women in white uniforms.
Anyway I am not the Mo in mopornnorthampton. moartgrantsnorthampton
or mofreesushinorthampton would be more my style.

WITH LOCAL ROOTS SHOW WORKS
through September 29 @ The NCA
MA—Seven graduates of Northampton High School, who studied
advanced honors art with Lisa Leary, chair of the high
school’s art department, will be exhibiting their work along
with hers during “Points of Departure,” a gallery show at
the Northampton Center for the Arts that will run from August
29 through September 29. The show’s artists’ reception
will be Friday, September 8, from 5 to 7 p.m. in conjunction
with Northampton’s Arts Night Out.
The theme of the exhibition refers to each artist’s "point
of departure" for his or her work and what each has accomplished
since studying with Leary. Individual departures range from
subjects such as poetry and family history to everyday life
Along with Leary, the artists are Carolyn Clayton, Gabe
Colwell-LaFleur, Lindsay Fogg-Willets, Rina Goldfield, Louise
Korhman, Brendan Molaghan, and Edward Rueda.
*Clayton is entering her sophomore year as an art major at
Carnegie Mellon University;
*A graduate of Carnegie Mellon, Colwell-LaFleur is a glassblower
who exhibits his work in New York and teaches at Snow Farm
*Fogg-Willets graduated from Skidmore College and is the owner/director
of ArtAlways in Florence, a children’s after-school program
in the visual arts, co-director of DASAC, a summer art camp
for kids at Deerfield Academy, a member of the Northampton’s
Oxbow Gallery and Ferrin Gallery, Lenox;
*Goldfield is entering her sophomore year at Cooper Union;
*Kohrman graduated from Smith College, received the M.F.A.
in printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design and has
worked with a master printer and Liz Chaflin at Zea Mays in
*Molaghan is entering his senior year at the Boston Museum
School and has recently returned from a semester in Italy;
*Rueda graduated from Columbia last year as a painting/art
major and will attend graduate school at New York University
in the fall to study journalism;
*Leary, who graduated from the University of Massachusetts
with an MFA in painting, has a studio in the Arts & Industry
building in Florence. She has taught in the Northampton School
system since 1985 and at the high school since 1989. She created
the honors art class in 1990. Leary has exhibited in commercial,
cooperative and non-profit spaces in, among other places,
New York, Vermont and Chicago.
The Center for the Arts is located at 17 New South Street,
Northampton, third floor. The galleries are open Tuesday
through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from noon
to 4 p.m. but will be closed Friday, September 1, through
Monday, September 4, for the Labor Day holiday.
Above image as described by artist Edward Rueda;
“Here are some digital photos of a scroll I'm presenting at
the September exhibit. It's entitled "The White House of David"
(2006), it's ink on a scroll of paper 12' x 6' (and ends of
the scroll make it about 13' long). It's an illuminated genealogy
of 30 presidents of the United States, tracing them back to
English royalty and other monarchies, the emperors of Rome,
the prophet Mohammed, the brother of Jesus Christ, the house
of King David, Adam and Eve, and all the orders of the class
of Mammalia, and finally the Kingdom of Animalia. “
a Violin Portrait of Denes Zsigmondy"
by Peter Morales
"Spiritoso, a Violin Portrait of Denes Zsigmondy" by Peter
Morales from the Canal Gallery in Holyoke will be shown
Sunday, August 20 at the Walnut Hill School in Natick Massachusetts,
12 Highland St at 7:30 p.m.
The screening is part of the month-long music festival at
Walnut Hill sponsored by the Foundation for Chinese
Denes Zsigmondy is a Hungarian violinist known for his deep
musical understanding and buoyant personality. He lives in
Germany. For many years he has visited Boston. During such
visits he appears in concert or teaches a master class or
engages with friends at intimate and informal musical gatherings.
This 58- minute documentary depicts Zsigmondy's visits from
1994 to 2003. One segment shows rare footage of a live radio
performance and interview on Morning Pro Musica, the WGBH
radio program hosted by the late Robert J. Lurtsema. At this
radio performance the renowned pianist, Hung-Kuan Chen is
Other segments include a rehearsal of Bartok's Concerto with
the Boston Philharmonic, conducted by Benjamin Zander; a master
class with Zsigmondy sharing his profound musical insights;
an informal concert with Hung-Kuan Chen at the pianist’s home.
Throughout the documentary Zsigmondy talks about his childhood,
his years touring with his beloved wife, the late Annaliese
Nielsen; his precious Stradivarius violin etc. The emphasis
of "Spiritoso" though, is the music, and in this documentary
there is lots of music, from Bartok, Paganini and Sarasate
to Bach, Brahms, Mozart, Schubert and Beethoven.
AT THE WILBRAHAM PUBLIC LIBRARY
August 2 -
of recent work by Holyoke artist Michael Powers will be on
display August 2 31 in the Brooks Room at the Wilbraham
Michael is a painter whose work focuses primarily on the landscape.
Although naturalistic in handling, he does not treat the landscape
in a traditionally scenic manner; his often unorthodox compositions
are deliberately based on the juxtaposition of the shapes
of the elements within the painting and their arrangement
on a two dimensional surface.
Michael has been painting and drawing since he was five; he
holds a degree in painting from Massachusetts College of Art
and has also studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts
and in Italy.
His work is in numerous private collections and has been displayed
at the White House, the Massachusetts State House, and at
galleries in and around Boston. He has taught drawing and
painting at The Fuller Art Museum in Brockton, Massachusetts,
The Guild Studio School in Easthampton, Massachusetts, and
at the Farmington Valley Arts Center in Avon, Connecticut.
He relocated to western Massachusetts in 2001 and this is
his first solo exhibition in this area.
Viewing times may vary; to be certain that the gallery will
be open at a specific time, it is best to call the library
beforehand at (413) 596-6141.
150 Main Street, Northampton 01060
WHEN: August 11-September 4, 2006
OPENING RECEPTION: August 11th, 5pm- 8pm
ARTIST’S STATEMENT: The work in this show hovers between
recognizable objects and abstracted forms.
To create the paintings I made a grid with images of bodies,
airplanes, birds, and flowers which became the first layer
of each painting. The next layers of the paintings are simple
blocks of translucent color which partially block and blur
the underlying images. By adding many layers of paint I changed
the original forms into simple landscapes.
The video allowed me to extend the idea of changing recognizable
images into new images, abstracted forms, and back again.
To create the video, I used a high-res eps of three finished
paintings, made stills, and strung them together. I altered
the still images to make exaggerated forms that morph back
and forth between the images on the paintings.
@ THE NCA
From August 3-11, the Center will present "stare decisis,"
a performance video/sound installation by Sally Greenhouse
that combines videotape excerpts from the John Roberts Supreme
Court Senate Judiciary Committee hearings interwoven on a
triple track with Greenhouse’s original monologue exploring
the theological and feminist dimensions of abortion from an
autobiographical perspective and comments, as well, on the
ongoing patriarchal domination of women’s sexuality. "stare
decisis" is a Latin legal term that means "let the decision
The Roberts hearings centered on whether he had the intention
of overturning Roe v. Wade or whether he would honor "stare
decisis"—the legal precedent of legalized abortion. The Greenhouse
piece is approximately 23 minutes long and will run continuously
in a loop so people may come at any time during the Center’s
open hours and watch for as long as they wish. The installation
includes original videotape of the Judiciary Committee hearings
obtained through the office of Senator Edward Kennedy.
Greenhouse says the piece is “executed with my characteristic,
ironic tragicomedic style as reflected in my long-running
award-winning television series, ‘The Greenhouse Effect.’”
The series, broadcast on NCTV, was supported by the Massachusetts
Cultural Council Arts Grant in New Theatre Works/Playwriting.
Greenhouse, an alumna of Harvard Divinity School, is a member
of the faculty of the Honors College at the University of
Massachusetts, where she teaches performance art.
The Center’s is open weekdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The installation’s
opening will be August 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. and a closing
reception will coincide with Northampton’s Arts Night out
on August 11 from 5 to 7 p.m. (The galleries will be open
from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. that day.) Greenhouse will be at the
August 11 reception, in effect, as she puts it, “installed
along with the installation” and available to talk with visitors.
The project is funded by a grant from the Northampton Arts

Summer of Goodbyes...
Residents of Baghdad are systematically being pushed out of
the city. Some families are waking up to find a Klashnikov
bullet and a letter in an envelope with the words “Leave your
area or else.” The culprits behind these attacks and threats
are Sadr’s followers- Mahdi Army. It’s general knowledge,
although no one dares say it out loud. In the last month we’ve
had two different families staying with us in our house, after
having to leave their neighborhoods due to death threats and
It’s not just Sunnis- it’s Shia, Arabs, Kurds- most of the
middle-class areas are being targeted by militias.
new space? Unique opportunities available right now.
A NEW &
UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY IN HOLYOKE
This is an excellent opportunity to get in at the beginning
and create a space. Excellent especially for a business needing
large piles of space. The overall space is 160,000 square
The building is on Appleton Street, next door to the police
station and across the street from Heritage state park (imagine
lunch breaks riding the merry-go-round
in the park!) with space to rent.
It is situated right on the canal. Parking is an issue however
so the owner, Ralph Thompson, is going to take half of the
first floor and create indoor parking. The roof has a spectacular
view and he will be making that into a huge roof deck, from
which you can see the park and merry-go-round, city hall,
sunsets and more! He is willing to discuss any modifications.
The ground floor is level with the driveway for easy loading/unloading.
The upper floors are perfect for artist studios. And, the
police are right next door. Check out pictures
here. Ralph is a really nice guy who recently went rock
hunting in China with our Kevin
Downey. And Kevin's a really nice guy so it's all logical
and therefor valid. It exists.
STUDIO SHARE AT ARTS & INDUTRIES

a loading dock, common area and bathroom. For more info
TO KIDS AT--
A CENTER FOR GRIEVING CHILDREN AND TEENS
compassionate treatment of those in distress
From shelly bathe lenn,
I run a small non profit that offers bereavement support to
families with young children at no cost. we're called THE
GARDEN: A CENTER FOR GRIEVING CHILDREN AND TEENS. every
other month from october to june families with children ages
5-12 years are part of small groups where they do activities,
projects, games etc.
In planning for our next season I'm looking for an artist,
or 2 to come in and teach an art skill to the kids. ideally
the skill would culminate into a project that would relate
to our themes (ie memories and remembering; dreams, worries,
nightmares etc)! and then these projects would be put on public
display somewhere in northampton so as to help spread the
word about our program.

-A SPECIAL PLACE FOR SPECIAL TIMES
at a kitchen table in a really nice family's home in Salvador.
Johnquest (of the stolen
car and movie
star daughter and the banners and all that) first told
me about this place. She discovered it shortly after moving
to Holyoke and found a gem.
I tried to
take a few pictures but I have such file size limitations
here, in addition to cheap camera limitations.
Anyway El Guanaco is a very special place. On 116
in South Hadley across the street from a biker bar called
Ebenezer Choos. When I see such a humble facade I think
it's either a fantastic secret or a disappointment. El Gunaco
is a discovery almost up there with Benign
The top pic is of the small the sign (circled) at the end
of its driveway. This is your cue to turn into the parking
lot and then you see the second picture. This is what you
would see coming across the 116 bridge from Holyoke.
The left half is take out and the right half is the restaurant,
all 4 tables of it. The food is delicious, simple and very
affordable but the dining experience definitely adds to
The tamales, enchiladas and burritos are cheap and delicious.
The accompnaying salsa and sauces are amazing and the cilantro
tastes fresh picked. The stewed chicken is perfectly done
and languishes (ew, lofty foodspeak) in a sauce both familiar
and somehow unusual. The cuisine is Salvadoran/Mexican and
I like to think it authentic, based on my few dining travels
outside the tourist zones in Mexico.
Beverages include Horchata, a creamy drink made with milk,
nuts, water and sugar, as well as Lime and Tamarind sodas
(made with sugar, NOT High Fructose Corn Syrup, the cheap,
evil substitute). Otherwise you bring your own beverages
and they are happy to bring you wineglasses and a bucket
with ice if you ask. The Flourescent lights are harsh but
if you ask, they will turn them off. I think next time I'll
It is family owned and operated. The parents (I believe.
I didn't ask actually) take shifts cooking and there are
2 girls who seem to switch off nights waitressing. Both
are really sweet and genuine and refreshingly informal.
Clearly neither went to "waitressing training", ("push an
appetizer", "make a face if they order the cheap bottle
of wine and snort with derision as you suggest another,
more suitable, bottle", "push desserts", "get those totals
up"!) such as I endured in Boston restaurants.
Everyone I have brought there has been delighted by the
food, the atmosphere and the nice family that seems to work
ceaselessly. I brought Maureen
Scanlon there for a birthday dinner and she raved and
Maureen has a reputation for having a dsicerning palate
as well as being an artiste in the kitchen.
Another epicurially gifted dinner companion at EG was Jon
Whitney, who told the chef/father/owner/person that
it was the best food he had had since moving here from California.
And the list goes on. They have been open under a year and
I am hoping that they'll be able to keep it going. So go
and tell them I sent you. Bring candles. Enjoy! The check
will have mercy on you.
p.s. I'd suggest mapquesting directions or asking Amy. My
directions lack that certain something like the actual location.

I wish I had
a link to a video of me in junior high in typing class faking
sudden appendicitis so I could go to the kindly nurse who

to return to typing class where I was frustrated to the point
of hysteria about my inability to type like all the other

a trip from here. And she's lovable and funny and she looks
like a Guild so she gets to be one.
Next time hopefully she'll send me text or I'll have to
tell more typing class stories and how I almost got held
back. The ensuing Meddy-Go-Rounds over this trauma have,
if anything, exacerbated my inability to type. I can only
type from the voices in my head as I stare at each key.
I can't type from documents because when I look away to
see what I am to type, the keys all change places.

A nice 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
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
