Ikebana Demonstration: October 12, 2pm: Come and learn about the history and philosophy of this ancient art form, from its Shinto origins, evolving into a Buddhist monastic tradition and a medieval Samurai discipline to a modern day abstract art form. Charles Coghlan has studied Ikebana for 33 years and is a third-level teacher of the Sogetsu School of Ikebana of Tokyo, Japan.
Introduction to Meditation: October 13, 10am: Gallery Assistant Ginny Rohan will give a brief introduction to mindfulness meditation and talk about how she uses it in conjunction with collage as therapy for those dealing with cancer. Then she will guide those gathered in a ten minute meditation, followed by a group discussion. Tea will be served. This event takes place before the gallery opens to the public.
Artist talk: Sunday, October 13, 2pm: I’ll be giving an informal talk about the whys and hows of my painting practice—where I find my inspiration, how I choose my subject matter, an overview of my process, and what it’s like to let them go after months of working on them. Bring your curiosity!
Jazz concert: Sunday, October 20, 6pm: Three-time Latin Grammy nominee Jovino Santos Neto, a master pianist, composer and arranger, is among the top Brazilian musicians working today. Jovino’s personal style is a creative blend of energetic grooves, deep harmonies, lyrical melodies and great ensemble playing. Neto is joined by Tim Carey, electric bass & multi-instrumentalist plus Jeff Buschdrummer/percussionist & vocalist.
Tickets available for $25 through the Gallery or online at Konnectclub.com
