Upcoming Events

FREE Writing Practice

Class/Workshop
This practice offers writers the opportunity to engage in a creative and communicative loop without judgment. We will write from a variety of prompts designed to get writers to loosen their inner censor and simply get words on the page during two or three short sessions. After each timed session, writers read aloud their new work to the other participating members who respond by recalling words or images that resonated. This zenlike practice originated in Natalie Goldberg’s "Writing Down the Bones."

Gallery Hop: Atlas of the Year Sojourner Maps to Being in the Right Place at the Right Time

Drawings/Works on Paper, Mixed Media, Gallery
Please join us for a Gallery Hop reception featuring artworks by Kathleen O’Brien. Atlas of the Year: Sojourner Maps to Being in the Right Place at the Right Time is an installation of twenty-four artworks depicting the cosmic year as a four-season, four-direction, cross-cultural celebration. It explores the ability of art to encompass this global entwining of time and space, which once understood, allows us to energetically be in the right place at the right time. Light refreshments will be served. Accompanying the artwork are the Four Seasonal Journals, Atlas of the Year greeting card sets; journals and greeting cards will be for sale. Artist Kathleen O’Brien combines abstract watercolors, drawing and botanicals into collages that appear dimensional and jewelry using antique, vintage and handmade beads.
