Wednesdays' Wisdom - “Earth Connection - Self Reflection”

KathyPetreLookingNethercoteCropped

Speaker - Kathy Lowe

Location - Mill Brook Gallery and Sculpture Garden

Topic:

I am a NH native, born into A Vaudeville/Circus family.
How I live my life today is inspired by a wild theatrical family up-bringing, songwriter Uncle Tom, three singing sisters,
and a deep desire to weave all these influences together with NH’s pristine natural environment, and come out the other side with creations from my heart,
for my self expression as well as healing intention towards others.
 
In following the muses of nature’s path, this talk will include my local history, my original songs of nature, my “Petreflection Photography”
(reflections of earth in water), and a group experience of resonance and vibration for healing.

Wednesday Wisdom is held on the second Wednesday of each month. Our goal is to bring fascinating speakers to a diverse group of greater Concord residents.
This is a pot luck and BYO (wine, beer or other drinks).

“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?

FINDING OUR VOICES

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.
