|A QUIET DAY
CREATING LOUD PLAIDS
in soft focus. with
spent the day out in the sun making really bright plaids for my COOLERATOR
PROJECT and taking pictures of them and making more plaids and taking more
pictures of them and their reflections on the grass and on my dog and my foot.
Then I ran inside and googled "bright plaids" and one of the
first links that came up was at www.intimo.com of a really UNbright, downright
drab, "plaid men's sleeping pants", which I found perplexing and which made me
question my comprehension of plaids and, inevitably, of life in general.
As I added each layer of stain to my glass I would hold it up to the sun
at all sorts of angles to see how the light came through. And then I'd bend over
it for a bit on my workbench and hold it up again and check all the angles and
the opacity and air bubbles.
Then something caught my eye and I glanced
across the canal and spied a few of the local people looking at me from the road
on the other side. I assumed they were looking at the building or else were
really, really bored.
As I continued to stain and hold samples aloft,
swirling around looking upward through my prettty, shiny glass at the sun, I
realized more people were looking at me.
And then a police cruiser paused and
watched me for a bit. And I realized it looked like I was doing a crazy dance in
the sun with my stained glass, much like how people twirl their small children
around in the air. And then I realized I must look crazy.
And then some
of the stain dripped on my jeans (from all the twirling) and I wished I could
find my old grey lab coat with the pocket protector which has been missing since
I moved to my new studio which naturally made me then think I should buy an old
bathrobe at the Salvation Army for use as a work coat. And then I had a vision
--> Me in my bathrobe on a sunny, soft-focused kind of day, out in the
peaceful fenced in garden alongside the canal with my art supplies, waltzing
about looking at the sun through my newly plaid glass and I realized why people,
including the police, were watching me.
The picture would only be complete
if an attendant came trotting out with my lunch on a plastic tray, complete with
strawberry jello and a single jaded petunia in a jar.

Celebration of New England: A Culture Reflected in Moving Water and Its Natural
History, An Evening
with Russell Powell and Nancy Pick
Celebration of New England: A Culture Reflected in Moving Water and Its Natural
An Evening with Russell Powell and Nancy Pick
Wednesday, 11 October 2006, 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Memorial Hall,
University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Russell Powell and Nancy
Pick will both speak regarding various aspects of New England literary heritage
and natural history. The event will take place on Wednesday, 11 October at 7:00
p.m. in Memorial Hall at the University of Massachusetts. The event is free and
open to the public and members of the Five College Community.
Powell, the founding editor and publisher of New England Watershed Magazine, a
bimonthly journal celebrating the thought, culture, and art in New England, will
extrapolate upon his original publishing philosophy and his vision for the
future of his publication. Nancy Pick, whose weekly book column appeared in The
Daily Hampshire Gazette, will read from her recently published book, Curious
Footprints: Professor Hitchcock’s Dinosaur Tracks and Other Natural History
Treasures at Amherst College (Amherst College Press, 2006).
launching New England Watershed Magazine in October 2005, Powell had written for
and edited numerous publications. For the last quarter century, he has both
lived and worked in each of the four New England states that border the
Connecticut River. The former newspaper editor has also been president of a
marketing company for the previous decade, Northern Star Communications.
His video documentary regarding the artist shacks in the dunes off the
Cape Cod National Seashore aired regionally in 2001 on the PBS-affiliate WGBH-TV
in Boston. Powell is also a published poet, having his work appear in such
periodicals as The Christian Science Monitor, Connecticut River Review, and
In discussing his goals for New England Watershed Magazine with
The Valley Advocate, Powell stated: "Here in New England, the role of the
Connecticut River in shaping our lives is an obvious example of how landscape
informs our experience, whether it’s here, in Nebraska cornfields or in
Louisiana bayous. It’s dangerous to ignore this fundamental connection, as we
have rediscovered in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Our interaction with
our landscape is a fundamental part of what it means to be human."
"Beyond that," Powell continues, "the many writers, artists and thinkers
who live here have not had a regional outlet for their ideas. With nearly 40
colleges and universities within the Connecticut River watershed, and hundreds
of museums, galleries and performance spaces, the presence of the river may help
to explain this concentration of cultural institutions, but the ideas that
emerge from themlike moving waterare what make the region dynamic."
When Powell was posed the question of "Why not an on-line venture?," his
answer reflects the tacit quality and values he would like to inform his readers
with: "I am a big believer in print. A print magazine’s physicalityits
texture, even its smellreflects a human quirkiness and scale. Magazines
don’t rely on a power source. You can take them anywhere: to the bedroom, the
bathroom, on vacation or beneath a tree. And you can’t equal the reproduction
values for a photograph or painting on a computer screen."
journalist for The Baltimore Sun, The Concord Monitor, and The Daily Hampshire
Gazette’s weekend magazine, Hampshire Life, Nancy Pick has written profiles of a
number of authors including biologist Paul Ewald and Nobel-prize winning poet
Joseph Brodsky. She has also published articles in Boston Globe Magazine and
Nancy Pick’s degrees include a B.A. form Amherst College
and a Master’s of Studies in Law, as a journalism fellow, from Yale Law School.
Her previous book before Curious Footprints is The Rarest of the Rare: Stories
Behind the Treasures at the Harvard Museum of Natural History, published by
HarperCollins in 2004. The introduction to the volume was written by
Pulitzer-prize winning biologist Edward O. Wilson, and the volume itself was
selected among the top twenty science books of 2004 by Discover magazine.
In a review written by Hilary Williamson that appears in BookLoons
Reviews, The Rarest of the Rare is described as: "An overview of ‘Natural
History at Harvard’ . . . misadventures that befell intrepid scientists while
collecting specimens (shades of Indiana Jones), and describes a real life murder
mystery (The Mastadon Murder), as well as covering the history of the museum."
"These tales (written by Nancy Pick)," she continues, "are organized into six
themed chaptersHistoric Holdings, Fossil Finds, Emblems of Biodiversity,
Extinct Species, Scientific Discoveries, and Miscellanyand enhanced by Mark
Sloan’s beautiful photography."
Pick’s new book, Curious Footprints,
accompanied with stunning color photographs of the college’s broader natural
history collections by Frank Ward, focuses on the remarkable life of Edward
Hitchcock (1793-1864). Although never having attended college himself,
Hitchcock, an autodidact, rose to not only take the position of president of
Amherst College but also became an eminent American geologist.
was a correspondent with Charles Darwin and played a significant role in the
education of Emily Dickinson. He also wrote in every genre conceivable, from
scientific treatise to poetry to tracts regarding health food. In the decades
before the publication of Origin of the Species, he made an effort to reconcile
Christianity with science. Pick writes in an opening letter to Hitchcock: "I
confess I find myself drawn to you. You were brilliant. From the backwater of
Amherst, you established a reputation even in London. And yet you were
vulnerable, a little tortured, often endearingly wrong."

JEFF MACK IS
DONE MURALING AT GREEN STREET CAFE Reception to
behold the work Sunday, October 15, 2006 from 2 - 5 pm
Please join me for a reception at the Green
Street Cafe in Northampton, MA on Sunday, October 15, 2006 from 2 - 5 pm!
The owners of this amazing restaurant are hosting a reception for my
recently completed mural there. It's a big one. About 28 feet wide by 9 feet
high! Plus it contains twice as many hidden clues as DaVinci’s Last Supper!
The mural deals with the issue of Smith College's decision to tear down
the neighborhood and replace it with a new engineering complex. It's a pretty
controversial topic, so there will be plenty to talk about besides some
incredible food and beverages to eat and drink. So please come by and check out
the restaurant and the mural while they are both still standing.
If you'd like more information about the mural or the reception,
you can go to the "news" section of my website: www.jeffmack.com
Green Street Cafe is located on Green Street in Northampton, MA across
from Smith College, near the Forbes Library off of rte 66.
I hope to see
you there on the 15th!

The house constructions in this exhibit, which embody 20
years of my work, were inspired by the renovation of my house in the Berkshires.
Living through the tearing down and building up, moving from room to room,
living without heat, a roof, not knowing where anything was, made me realize how
very affected I was by the state of my home. Living amid the sawdust and noise
also made me appreciate how women through the ages have been the keepers of the
house, taking care of our homes, nurturing our schildren, cooking cleaning. I
started applying the shape of a a woman's body onto my houses to evoke this
reality. The female breasts, her round belly, her curvy shape soften these
Valley Potters’ Guild 30th Anniversary Exhibit Opening
reception from 5-7pm on October 13th
Asparagus Valley Potters’ Guild will celebrate 30 years in existence with a
special exhibit of member’s work at the Northampton Center for the Arts located
at 17 New South Street in Northampton, MA. The show will run from October
4th-29th, 2006 with an opening reception from 5-7pm on October 13th (in
conjunction with Northampton’s "Arts Night Out.").
Michael Cohen stated that the Guild was formed in 1976 by a small group of
working potters who wanted to have a way to be among other professional potters
in a social atmosphere. The name of the guild was chosen to honor the rich
Connecticut River Valley’s famous crop. It also refers to the fact that a big
part of every meeting is the wonderful food members bring. The group now numbers
40 members, and meets every other month for a potluck, and business meeting to
discuss issues pertinent to professional potters. It provides a forum for
professional potters (not hobbyists) to get out of their studios and interact
with others who have the same business concerns. It also results in a lot of
recipe sharing, as potters tend to love the culinary arts in addition to making
The show will feature works from some of the longest
standing members, including Michael Cohen, Angela Fina, and Robert Woo as well
as works of newer members such as Robbie Heidinger, Tiffany Hilton, and Steve

of New England mills. Easthampton, MA. , October 1-30Th. An artist’s
reception will be held Oct. 14, 6-8 pm.
In this exciting exhibition,
Barbara Johnson once again proves why her paintings have always brought her such
acclaim. Her new paintings invite (no, demand) one to participate. Barbara
Johnson has proved that she can put down in paint anything that interests her
with great precision - capturing form and exquisite detail.
It is very
exciting to see an artist's work presented in such an intelligent and diligent
manner - from the very beautiful iconic portraits of objects and of people, to
the most recent Millscapes: where Johnson literally steps out into space to meet
the challenges of relationships and content that go into the process of creating
her finely rendered oil paintings and other works.

~~The Artisan Gallery, 162 Main Street, will be showing
the hand-made, wood-fired ceramics of Sam Taylor. Says Sam: “I like to make
the pot that is wholly clear—that unquestionably and effortlessly meets the
expectations of its user~I cannot control my wood-fired kiln; I can only try to
intelligently direct it~Each firing is different, which can be as disappointing
as it is exciting, because nothing is exactly as beautiful as the time
before~All my pots are functional, though I do make some pieces that are
prettier to look at, while other pieces are more rewarding to use.”
~~R. Michelson Galleries, 132 Main Street, continues “Works in Egg
Tempera” by Fred Wessel, Phil Schirmer and Mark Meunier. Egg tempera is a
process that uses egg yolk to bind pigments. Recognized as the second oldest
painting medium, it requires that the artists manufacture the paints by the
simple process of mixing finely ground pigment, water and egg yoke.
~~The A.P.E. Gallery, 150 Main Street, third floor, is showing the
work of three artists: Diane Savino, who also uses egg tempera for her
paintings, which combine symbol and iconography referencing personal journeys;
Keith Fisher, who is currently working in oil pastels, a medium that
incorporates the attributes of both drawing and painting; and Terry Rooney whose
pieces are a retrospective of over 15 years of her 3D house constructions, which
are an extension of a woman's body. Several pieces are new, and several have
not been exhibited before.
~~The Naked Art Gallery, 492 Pleasant
Street, is new to the Arts Night Out group and will be featuring Sandra
Pipczynski's digital photography of familiar local New England scenes with a
sprinkling of natural flora and fauna. The gallery is located within the
Dance Northampton Studio, which affords space for artistic performance for
individuals or groups during Arts Night Out. Call Dance Northampton for details
~~Alfredo's Gallery, 5 Crafts Avenue, will have a "Wall
Decor Sale,” with “amazing price reductions” on everything from original
photography to other forms of wall décor, including items in the downstairs
“Accentuate” section of the gallery.

99 Main Street, will be showing the work of two artists: informal portraits by
Laura Kowal in acrylics that focus on families and landscapes; and portraits and
still life compositions by Lisa Rock in oil and acrylics.
~~Pinch, 179 Main Street, will feature the quirky, humorous and
intelligent ceramics of Michael Terra. All of Terra’s works, which are
functional and emotionally engaging, are hand-sculpted with simple tools and
then high fired. Terra will be on hand at Pinch from 5 to 9 p.m.
the Oxbow Gallery, 275 Pleasant Street, David Bradford will show recent
paintings, including landscapes done in Montana, where he paints during the
summer, and variations of views of Northampton, where he lives and works during
the rest of the year, as well as some San Francisco scenes. In reconciling
the language of painting with the possibilities of the reality that he sees, he
says, “Ultimately, my goal, as Andre Derain once wrote, is 'to give life to a

work by some of its longest standing members, including Michael Cohen, Angela
Fina, and Robert Woo, as well as works of newer members like Robbie Heidinger,

Mohawk Trail Concerts is proud to present
this highly acclaimed new documentary to round out its season of works in honor
of the 250th anniversary of Mozart’s birth. This spring the Oscar winning film
‘Amadeus’ introduced the season. In Search of Mozart is something completely
different; without resorting to docu-drama or visual re-enactment, In Search of
Mozart traces the composer’s life through his music and extensive
correspondence. From K1a to K626 (Requiem), over 80 works are featured in
chronological order, revealing striking parallels between the music and Mozart’s
own experiences. Throughout, it is the music that takes centre stage, with the
jigsaw of Mozart’s life fitting around it. His letters reveal an extraordinary
personal voice, which rings out on an engaging, human level, full of joy,
passion, pain, rage, jokes, bawdy humour and sensitivity. With rigorous analysis
from musicologists and experts such as Jonathan Miller, Cliff Eisen, Nicholas
Till, Bayan Northcott and the late Stanley Sadie, a new, vivid impression of the
composer emerges. It dispels the many common myths about Mozart.s genius,
health, relationships, death and character, to present a new image.

FROM DWIGHT SMITH with a
Dogs (Sag-Haye Velgard) (2004) written and directed by Marziyeh Meshkini,
Marziyeh Meshkini, wife of Iranian director Mohsen Makhmalbaf and
mother of film-makers Samira and Hana, follows her feature debut The Day I
Became a Woman with a child's-eye odyssey that's by turn colourful, comic,
tragic and insightful. Shot in Afghanistan in 2003 and set on the second
anniversary of 9/11, the film is based on real-life situations that Meshkini
encountered while scouting locations for her daughter's film At Five in the
To tell you the truth, this wasn’t planned. More a piece of
synchronicity. It wasn’t until I watched Stray Dogs that I made the connections
between this and last week’s choice. I’d already chosen the film as my pick of
the week so learning these connections only made it seem more apropos.
When their mother (Agheleh Rezaie) is locked up for remarrying after her
first husband disappears, brother and sister Zahed and Gol-Ghotai are allowed to
stay with her at nights. When they are suddenly refused entry into the prision,
the brother and sister hatch a plan to get themselves arrested in order to
rejoin her. Using non-professional actors, (the two children are outstanding!)
Meshkini presents the grim reality of Kabul's street children along with
compelling insights into the plight of women in post-war Afghanistan. The film
provides an intimate encounter with the aspects of daily reality in these
“theatres” of war that if not for artists like Meshkini we may know nothing
POETIC BONUS FROM DWIGHT SMITH
As a bonus,
this week I offer an translation of Mohsen Makhmalbaf’s (Mashkini’s husband)
filmscript Love’s Turn.
This film was eventually forbidden in
Iran. The link is to Words Without Borders who, for anyone who doesn’t know who
they are, are this incredible group of people providing access to poets and
writers from all parts of the planet. Support them if you can.
Love’s Turn by Mohsen Makhmalbaf
Translated from the Persian by Zjaleh
TRANSLATOR'S NOTE: Nawbat-i asheqi (Love's

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

"ACA allows artists from different disciplines the opportunity to interact
in a supportive space with time for artistic production as well as isolated
studio time. It is a rare bird in the American cultural landscape." Laura Owens
(ACA Master Artist, 2006)
"My three weeks at ACA were a chance to focus
in a positive atmosphere amongst a diverse group of people - all energetic and
enthusiastic about making work and sharing ideas. The collaborative
possibilities with Associates from other disciplines, the technical support of
the staff, the fantastic natural environment, made my residency an unforgettable
experience." Xana Kudrjavcev-DeMilner (Associate Artist, 2006)

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 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: firstname.lastname@example.org, or via phone
at 413- 586-0998.

This 4 evening
class will introduce and explore a wide variety of monotype techniques using
Akua Waterbased inks, including additive, reductive, layering methods,
viscosity, resists, using stencils and more. Students will learn painterly
methods of applying color and expand their range of mark making possibilities
with the Akua needle applicators and pens. Each week, a demonstration will be
followed by work time so that participants have ample time to assimilate each
new process while building up a repertoire of techniques over the course of the
month. All levels of experience are welcome.
Printing with Plastic
October 28-29, 2006, 10-5, $250 includes
Combine Rembrandt's techniques with Dupont's plastics to
make prints which are expressive and inexpensive! Instead of traditional copper
plates, we'll use thin sheets of plastic to explore drypoint and collotype.
Drypoint involves scratching lines directly into the plate, whether fine detail
or big gestures. Collotype prints are made from textural plates, with lots of
possibilities for rich, painterly images. Both processes are relatively direct
and fast, which makes it easy to work spontaneously and intuitively. Since
drypoint is linear and collotype is tonal, these techniques combine especially
well. It can be very freeing to work with materials that are easy to use and
inexpensive--come explore the possibilities! This workshop is suitable for
anyone new to printmaking and to printmakers interested in loosening up and
widening their working process.
