APPLES & EVES

“as the sweetapple reddens on a high branch

             high on the highest branch and the applepickers forgot-

 no, not forgot: were unable to reach”
                  (a fragment of Sappho translated by Anne Carson)

Did Eve really eat an apple? Did Johnny Appleseed really scatter apple seeds? What's so American about apple pie?

What is it about apples that has entranced the imagination of painters & poets, cooks & theologians?

Kimball Jenkins

Presents

The Merrimack River Painters

FINDING OUR VOICES

November 2nd - December 3rd

Artist Reception
November 2nd 5pm - 7pm

mmrp.jpg

An Inspirational exhibition about what it takes to be an artist. Twelve artists who have been painting and exhibiting together for fifteen years celebrate their growthas they navigate their family and community responsibilities to find their creative voices. This remarkable group of artist friends encourage each other to be true to themselves and pursue their unique creative expression.


The large exhibition - in the beautiful Kimball Jenkins Mansion and Carriage house-  showcases the artists’ sense of themselves and includes a special wall of self portraits done just for the show.  No longer burdened by youthful insecurities, these mature women see themselves as total individuals.. different from most of their contemporaries …heroically visual and distracted by their idiosyncratic relationship to reality..they don’t see themselves as normal…they see themselves as ARTISTS.

Wednesdays’ Wisdom - Why Do We Have Minds and What on Earth Are They Up To?

WedWisdom-218x300.jpg

When? October 11, 5:30 pm

Where Mill Brook Gallery & Sculpture Garden

Who? David Coursin

What?
Why Do We Have Minds and What on Earth Are They Up To?
Nature starts with very simple things and somehow creates great complexity.  Is that how our minds came about? The Prisoner’s Dilemma, animal behavior, “quorum sensing”, the appearance of cooperation in a predator/prey world: each holds clues to help us frame answers and have fun with new questions about ourselves, our relationships and our cultures.  Even psychiatry might offer some clues if it could get its act together.  David Coursin is a psychiatrist, visual artist, poet, and apprentice musician who has studied these questions in hopes of doing a better job in his work and in understanding himself.
