NEW EXHIBITION TO OPEN FRIDAY @ BALTIMORE CLAYWORKS

People of Color, People of Clay

WHEN: May 6th thru July 1, 2017, with an opening reception scheduled for Friday, May 5th from 6pm to 8pm
WHERE:
Baltimore Clayworks, 5707 Smith Ave., Baltimore

Longtime Baltimore icon and internationally known expert on race and culture Leslie King-Hammond (left)will be curating the upcoming People of Color, People of Clay (POC2) exhibition at Baltimore Clayworks. The show will feature work created by artists of color from across the country.

"It's absolutely amazing," said Devon Powell, Clayworks Interim Executive Director in discussing King Hammonds' involvement with the exhibition. "It's huge. I don't think we could have asked for or gotten a better-suited person to curate this exhibition, and I don't have the words to express the organization's appreciation and gratitude."

The premise behind POC2 was grounded in the unearthing of exhibiting artists' love of clay, and the voice they found upon the first touch of the materials, and will illustrate the creative community of clay coming together to celebrate, raise up, and promote one another. Artists confirmed as presenting their work in the exhibition include: Gina Aparicio, Mariana Baquero, Sophia Capaldi, Patsy Cox, Rachel Eng, Michel Fujita, Blanca Guerra, Aisha Harrison, Kahlil Irvin, Akiko Jackson, Rob Kolhouse, Jae Won Lee, Courtney Leonard, David MacDonald, Julie Moon, Malcolm Mobutu Smith, Nathan Murray, Mario Mutis, Sharon Norwood, Ruben Olguin, Mercedes Ortiz, Sonya PauKune, E. M. Ray, Nigel Rudolph, Nan Smith, and James Watkins.

Lived History and Cultural Memory

Also on display in the Solo Gallery will be a collection of pieces from Sharif Bey, Associate Professor of Art Education at Syracuse University, whose work ranges from decorative/functional pottery to conceptual wearable ceramic works. His solo exhibition includes artwork inspired by functional pots as well as nonwestern rituals, traditions, and practices. (Left: "Star Child"

Local artists Oletha DeVane and Sallah Jenkins will also be presenting their works in the Project Space and Community Arts Gallery. DeVane, an Ellicott City resident, is a multi-media artist who will be displaying several recent 2-D pieces. Jenkins, a long-standing Community Arts instructor with Clayworks and Baltimore native, will be presenting works titled "Sacred."

Baltimore Clayworks' mission is to develop, promote and sustain an artist-centered community, which provides outstanding artistic, educational and collaborative programs in the ceramic arts. Founded in 1980 by a group of nine community-minded ceramic artists, Baltimore Clayworks has developed a strong local and global reputation for artists' development coupled with sustained community engagement.

Baltimore Clayworks lives its mission daily through its programs: Artists residencies; Ceramic classes and workshops taught by working artists; Exhibitions of nationally and internationally recognized ceramic artists; and a Community Arts program that serves underserved populations at sites across the Baltimore region.

WHERE:
Baltimore Museum of Art, 10 Art Museum Dr., Baltimore
ADMISSION: Free

In partnership with Beyond Conflict, a global initiative internationally recognized for its powerful new approaches to achieving peace in divided societies, the free event on brings together leaders in the arts, conflict resolution and behavioral science to share the drivers of exclusion and the ways people consciously and unconsciously act.

Speakers and moderators include: Rebecca Saxe, Principal Investigator, SaxeLab for Social Cognitive Neuroscience, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool, activist and former South African Ambassador to the U.S.; Carrie Mae Weems, Contemporary Artist, MacArthur Genius Award recipient; Jeannie Howe, Executive Director, Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance; Mark Muller, Senior Advisor to the United Nations Envoy to Syria; Christopher Bedford, BMA Dorothy Wagner Wallis Director; and Timothy Phillips, Co-Founder and CEO of Beyond Conflict.

This is the second in a series of events designed by Beyond Conflict to engage leaders across the United States in conversations on the seemingly intractable challenges of discrimination, bias, and exclusion. Beyond Conflict’s most notable accomplishments include: catalyzing the field of transitional justice; helping introduce the truth commission concept in South Africa; and fostering peaceful negotiations and national reconciliation among leaders in Northern Ireland, Central America, and the Balkans.

Linda Oh Quartet: Sun Pictures at NYC Winter Jazz Fest 2015: "Blue Over Gold"

Join us on International Jazz Day! Linda May Han Oh's ensemble features Linda May Han Oh on bass, Fabian Almazan on piano, Troy Roberts on tenor saxophone, Matthew Stevens on guitar, and Dan Weiss on drums.

“One of the most dynamic rising stars in jazz today” (Wall Street Journal).

Bassist and composer, Linda May Han Oh celebrates the music of her newest album Walk Against Wind on Biophilia Records. She has performed with musicians such as Joe Lovano, Vijay Iyer, Kenny Barron and has composed music for various ensembles and short films. In 2010 she was nominated for the Jazz Journalist’s Awards for Up and Coming Artist of the Year, and received the award of No. 1 Acoustic Bass Rising Star in the Downbeat Critic’s Poll. Oh’s understated yet highly sophisticated style is the phenomenal bassist’s singular mark that characterizes her music. She is now a member of Pat Metheny’s most recent quartet project.

The art of mime, with its embrace of silence and pure physical expression, may seem like an unlikely source of inspiration for a jazz musician. But in “Walking Against the Wind,” one of Marcel Marceau’s best-loved pieces, bassist/composer Linda May Han Oh found a stunning metaphor for the life of an artist. Marceau’s graceful but frustrated motion, which also inspired Michael Jackson’s iconic moonwalk, found the legendary mime fighting against invisible but pervasive forces while also embracing the beauty and pleasure to be found in taking the paths in life that offer greater challenges – but also richer rewards.

On her fourth album, Walk Against Wind, Oh explores both the challenges and the rich rewards of an artist’s journey. “Walk Against Wind is about the paths that we choose,” Oh explains. “Sometimes they end up being the harder paths, but in the long run they prove more fruitful.” The compelling, memorable compositions and thrilling improvisations on Walk Against Wind exemplify why Linda May Han Oh has become one of the most in-demand bassists of her generation.

One of Baltimore's premiere jazz concert series for over two  decades, the  Baltimore Chamber Jazz Society programs some of  the finest artists in jazz  today.

HOBOKEN H.S. PRESENTS STAGED READING AS FUNDRAISER FOR DRAMA DEPARTMENT

FORTUNE_Hoboken HS Reading Promo Piece_SMALL

The drama students of Hoboken High School and their director, Danielle Miller, along with celebrated actress Joy Kelly and the Hoboken High School Chorus, present a staged reading of George Cameron Grant’s empowering play as a fundraiser for its theater program.

FORTUNE
WHEN: April 28, 2017 at 7pm
WHERE:
Hoboken High School, 800 Clinton St, Hoboken, NJ 07030
TICKETS: $10 for students and seniors;  $20 general admission
Tickets are very reasonably priced and are available at www.hhsnj.booktix.com/dept/Theatre  
The show is appropriate for everybody including children 8 years and older and their families. 

George’s powerful and noble work is about the most unforgettable women you have never known,  Rose Fortune, who was born a slave, and through a 90-year life span, became a symbol of truth, social equality, and human spirit.

Fortune1Photo

Through the miracle of Skype, we are able to share this wonderful presentation of FORTUNE by the students of Hoboken High School with the citizens of Annapolis Royal, the town where Rose lived and worked 80 of her 90 years and the Annapolis Royal Mayor, the Honorable William MacDonald, who will be present to host his side of the simulcast, and will be sharing with both audiences, exciting details about the latest development in the Rose Fortune mission, dedication of Rose’s memorial in Garrison Cemetery, created by celebrated Canadian sculptor, Brad Hall, on Canada Day, July 1. 

Inspired by the life of Rose Fortune, internationally-produced and award-winning playwright George Cameron Grant’s (additional collaborations with New York composer Michael J. Shapiro; composer of Pass On the Love featured in Spike Lee’s Do It A Cappella; Addy Award winner for his work on August Wilson’s Fences) “Fortune” also depicts a facet of American History rarely taught—the role Black Loyalists played to win their freedom from slavery. 

This staged reading will be directed by Hoboken High’s acclaimed Danielle Miller.  Hoboken High, one of New Jersey’s more diverse high schools, recently took home 12 medals in the NJ Thespians Festival competing against 35 other schools. The judges were particularly impressed with the honesty and truthfulness of the performances of the Hoboken students.

In “Fortune” 10-year old, courageous Rose refuses to accept failure as an option, no as an answer, or despair as a destiny.  As critic David Roberts, Theatre Reviews Limited, wrote:  “Fortune” is a powerful testament to the ability of the individual to overcome seemingly impossible odds to achieve success and to the importance of family, faith, and the amazing resilience of the human spirit to overcome.  “Fortune” is truly transformational theatre.    Real, simple, direct and powerful, it is the kind of theatre that can shift thinking, wake up consciousness, and change lives meaningfully.
