African-American Stories with Diane Ferlatte – Performance for the Schools

African American Stories with Diane Ferlatte—Tuesday, November 6, 2018 Grammy-nominated storyteller Diane Ferlatte is a multi-award winning performer who has captivated audiences across six continents of the globe. While emphasizing the history, struggles and triumphs of the African American experience as well as African & Southern tales, she also loves to tell stories that hold truths touching upon our common humanity, including personal stories as well as many tales from other cultures. She believes that telling and listening to each other’s stories not only enables us to learn about each other, but also to understand each other better. She views storytelling as a traditional art form that can promote literacy, imagination, and values in the young. Through stories, songs, sign language, humor and audience participation, she brings her tales to life while accompanied by her musician Erik Pearson on banjo & guitar.  Please note: The 11:00am performance is followed by an optional interactive workshop lasting approximately 25 minutes; this workshop is suitable for grades 5-8.   Location: Main

CANCELLED – THANKSGIVING DINNER

West Marin Community Thanksgiving Dinner   The Board and Staff of West Marin Community Services and other community organizations who have proudly sponsored this historic dinner for approximately two decades will rest and re-evaluate in 2018 After long-range planning for our core community work, we concluded that we needed to take a break from the West Marin Community Thanksgiving Dinner. We strongly feel that this event has grown in ways we could not have originally imagined, and needs to be reshaped. The pioneers launched this event for neighbors who needed a warm Thanksgiving. Gradually, however, our Community Thanksgiving became larger and labor intensive with fewer local neighbors dining at the event. Last year we served over three hundred meals, and people from thirty towns joined. West Marin Community Services’ mission is to provide support and care to people in West Marin who have unmet needs or who are in crisis, and we cannot divert time and effort from those individuals and families. We would love to continue with this event and encourage community involvement. Many volunteers have contributed over the years. However, we wish to encourage more participation in planning and management. We hope that by taking a break, we will be able to evaluate and find ways to align this event with WMCS’s mission. We invite community members to send us ideas and thoughts. Please let us know how we should feast together!

Rich Clarke – Dance Palace Lobby Artist

Rich Clarke's work will be on display in the Dance Palace Lobby through December 2018.  

Artist statement:

Welcome to the Dance Palace.

I’ve had a 60 year journey with photography.

This current show represents an evolution into ‘image making’ 

the digital world offers.

So often, over the years I ‘documented’... Sierra's glaciated valleys, storm twisted Junipers, and Bristlecone,

sunsets, water and its powerful grace, family, Kehoe, and more…

The emotion of the moment was often evident, but the awe

in my heart  was left on location.   

A number of the present images are a very small detail carved from what 

the camera caught… isolated, blown up, edited to express the awe 

I felt the moment the shutter clicked.

I hope you find some of it, too.

Artist's Statement:

Art = Bricolage   "..in our own time the 'bricoleur' is still someone who works with his hands and uses devious means compared to those of a craftsman.... The 'bricoleur' is adept at performing a large number of diverse tasks; but, unlike the engineer, he does not subordinate each of them to the availability of raw materials and tools conceived and procured for the purpose of the project." Claude Lévi-Strauss   I feel this best explains my art. My art work becomes handyman stuff, born of restlessness, of curiosity, pushing old techniques. My tinkering concerns making something out of what is at hand, while embodying the essence of the object . My subject matters present themselves to me as worthy of attention visually, nostalgically, and conceptually.

Sky Nelson-Isaacs in Conversation: “Living In Flow” Book Release

Join Point Reyes native Sky Nelson-Isaacs for the release of his first book "Living in Flow: The Science of Synchronicity and How Your Choices Shape Your World."

Synchronicity or meaningful coincidence has been something philosophers and scientists have wondered about for decades. Most of us have experienced it at least once. You are on a much anticipated road trip and your vehicle breaks down. As you’re waiting by the side of the road a mechanic who specializes in just that type of car drives up and lends a hand. Is this just chance? Can two events be related in a meaningful way without one causing the other? If so, what does this tell us about the cosmos? Can we live in such a way and make choices that encourage synchronicity? Is that something we should strive for? In "Living in Flow" (North Atlantic Books, March 2019, paperback) physicist Sky Nelson-Isaacs turns to quantum mechanics to seek answers. Adhering to what we know from science, while offering a provocative new hypothesis, Nelson-Isaacs proposes that the cosmos may be designed to bring us meaningful, synchronistic experiences in response to the choices we make. 

When we live in “flow,” a state of activity in which we align with our purpose and values, balancing our personal good with the greater good, we make choices that invite synchronicity. In addition to a layperson’s explanation of the possible physics behind synchronicity, Nelson-Isaacs shows how cultivating flow can empower us individually and help make our world a better place.

An Evening with Storyteller Martin Shaw, presented by Black Mountain Circle

Martin Shaw brings myths and stories to rouse beauty in troubled times, and introduces his new book, The Night Wages. In troubled times it can be easy to fall into either despair or numbness. Traditionally it was the role of the storyteller to rouse awareness of beauty and vocation in such moments, and attend to the grace. Martin brings myths that remind us of love, grief and the mysteries—provoking our humanity. He will also talk about his new book, The Night Wages, a rumination on the vitality of ancient stories in modern times.  

Martin Shaw is a mythologist, author and wilderness rites-of-passage guide. A prominent teacher of myth, he devised and led the Oral Tradition and Living Myth courses at Stanford University and is a fellow of Schumacher College in the United Kingdom. Author of the award winning Mythteller trilogy, his new books for 2019 include, The Night Wages, Courting the Dawn: Poems of Lorca (with Stephan Harding) and Life Cycle, a long essay and conversation with Ai Wei Wei on myth and migration.  Cost $25

Closing Artist Reception – Laurie Sawyer

Laurie Sawyer is having a closing reception for her show in the Dance Palace lobby.  

"Since I was a child, making pictures was one of my favorite calming yet invigorating pastimes. I have found that years change many things and then there are the things that never change.    I have lived in places with beaches and canyons to explore. Where flora and fauna abound. I've grown gardens and children. My artwork has been deeply influenced by all of it. Monet said "I am following Nature without being able to grasp her, I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers".  I concur.   My most recent work is directed towards Scientific Illustration. I  hope to share my concern for this beautiful place we inhabit, and through the creation of pictures share stories that might inspire understanding and respect for the world around us."   More information about Laurie's work can be found at https://www.newcompassdesigns.com

Jennifer Thompson   Family, Friends and Landscape   Dance Palace Lobby, August 2019 ARTIST RECEPTION SATURDAY, AUGUST 3,  2 - 4 PM     Feeling daunted by the larger social and political landscape, I prefer to concentrate on the local, the immediate, the familiar. These subjects soothe my soul and amuse me, as well  as reminding me to be grateful to live here in West Marin, with  so much natural beauty and so many enjoyable individuals.   I am as interested in the shapes and expressions of people as I am in the landscape – more, maybe. That continues to be the focus of my painting. I take pictures of people I want to paint and work slowly, in oil paint, from those photographs. I’m lucky enough to have a studio on the property where I live, on Inverness Ridge, where I am surrounded by light, trees, birds, cats, foxes, and family. That seems to be the perfect recipe for my work. That, and some travel now and then.   For sales or future commissions, contact me directly:     Jennifer Thompson   thompsonjennifer2@gmail.com   415-233-2733
