CERAMIC EXHIBITION OPENS @ BALTIMORE CLAYWORKS

Baltimore Clayworks

Jack TroyARTIFACTS FROM THE INFERNO
Contemporary Wood-fired Ceramics
JURIED BY JACK TROY

WHEN: OCTOBER 5 - NOVEMBER 9, 2013; OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 6-8 PM FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
WHERE: Baltimore Clayworks, 5707 Smith Ave., Baltimore
MON-FRI 10 AM-5 PM, SAT-SUN 12-5 PM

In the past half decade, the aesthetic spectrum of wood-fired ceramics has expanded as the second generation of practitioners builds experimental kilns, investigates various woods, clays, firing protocols and personal visions. While many of us get better at what we already know to do, younger wood firers are working out moves of their own, sometimes in midair after bouncing off traditional diving boards.

This exhibition will showcase the persistent exploration of forms and surfaces as wood-firing continues to attract a widening clan of participants and connoisseurs.

Amy CarnahanSOLO GALLERY:
AMY CARNAHAN, DRAFTED VESSELS

 

Amy designs and builds ceramic vessels that reflect her background in architecture.

Her work often begins with a sketch or drafted rendering. She re-creates the shapes from these drawings in clay, using lines to build texture into the geometry of her vessels.

COMMUNITY ARTS GALLERY:
THE FETZER INSTITUTE, TUERK HOUSE AND CLAYWORKS

Baltimore Clayworks and the Fetzer Institute developed a robust partnership exemplifying the power of love and forgiveness through craft—in particular, the work that Baltimore Clayworks does with the men at the Tuerk House, a west-side recovery institution.

The exhibiting works showcase the results of the partnership.

WHERE: The Red Room at Normals Books and Records, 425 E. 31st Street Baltimore
WHEN: September 29th, doors open at 8:30, music at 9 PM

RON ANDERSON

The Press on Ron Anderson:"Part musical genius and part delirious madman, when you're listening to Anderson's music you're never quite sure whether you're listening to the ravings of an insane musical genius or the genius moments of a totally unschooled dilettante."

Ron Anderson was born in Jersey City, New Jersey in 1959. He is a self-taught rock composer who starting experimenting with new rock concepts, noise, free improvisation while in high school in the mid 1970’s. In 1980 he was one of the founding members of Rat At Rat R in Philadelphia. He moved to New York City’s Lower East Side in 1982. He started working in his home recording studio experimenting with tape editing, found sounds, noise, and improvisation. He combined these elements with composition and released his first LP entitled Fever Dream in 1987.

Ron moved to Oakland, CA in 1989 and shortly thereafter formed The Molecules; they released a total of 6 CD’s. He and The Molecules were introduced to the European music community at the Musique Action Festival in Nancy, France in 1993 and since then he has been a regular on the European festival and club circuit, as well as touring in Japan, Canada and the United States. After living in Geneva, Switzerl and for one year, he moved back to New York City in 1999 where he formed PAK. He has collaborated with many musicians on numerous projects. He appears on over 60 releases, most recently Ron Anderson’s PAK - Secret Curve on Tzadik and R. Anderson/Robert L, Pepper/David Tamura/Philippe Petit – Closed Encounters Of The 4 Minds on Pubic Eyesore.

MUGWUMP

Also on the bill is the world's premier "Boing-Core" unit: MUGWUMP... with Neil Feather leading a quartet of Dan Breen, Eric Franklin and Bob Wagner. To paraphrase the words of the immortal Al Ackerman, "Like Plastic Man and a Taffy Puller Dancing Turkey in the Straw." More proof of Baltimore's supremancy when it comes to sliding pitches and rubbery corners.

Imaginary Friends

Mike Allender on Ekdahl Polymgamist.  The birds on the tree outside Mike Allendar's house:  "Squeep squip squip squip, wheeet tit!""

SUSPENSION OF READERS’ ABILITY TO POST COMMENTS

Dear loyal readers,

As of today, I have disabled the ability to comment on posts to this blog. I have been forced to do so as a result of a spate of spam comments written by someone who has an agenda to disrupt traffic on the blog. The reader (me) is usually directed to a porn site. I never go there because it probably has the ability to infect the blog with a virus. I have always marked them as spam.

I hope that this action will put a stop to this nonsense. I am sorry that I will suspend your ability to comment cogently on my blog posts, but I sure don’t want any of my readers to get a virus through this blog.

Best,

Ruth Ross

RANCHO MIRAGE
By Steven Dietz
Directed by Jason Loewith

WHEN: Wednesday, September 25, at 8:00 PM
WHERE: On the Mainstage, Olney Theatre Center, 2001 Olney-Sandy Springs Road, Olney

A bitingly funny black comedy about what happens when the fictions that hold our lives together are exposed. In Dietz's sharp and surprising sojourn into the psyche of 2013 America—where affluence is perhaps our greatest mirage—three couples, long-time friends, find themselves at a dinner party where everyone finally decides to tell the truth.

Rancho Mirage begins its National New Play Network (NNPN) Rolling World Premiere at Olney Theatre Center. The NNPN Rolling World Premiere of the play continues after Olney Theatre Center’s production at former Artistic Director Jim Petosa’s theatre, New Rep (Watertown, MA), followed by productions at Phoenix Theatre (Indianapolis) and Curious Theatre (Denver).
Rancho Mirage is a recipient of a 2013 Edgerton Foundation New American Plays award.

Recommended for ages 15 and up due to mature themes and some mature language

Executive Producer: Helen Marshall


TICKETS: will be handed out in the Mainstage lobby on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 7:00 PM. Mainstage doors open at 7:30 PM.
