Uncaged Art - Exhibition & Silent Auction

uncaged art kj.png

TORNILLO ART PROJECT

The Artwork in “Uncaged Art” is the result of a four-day social studies project in December 2018 and January 2019. Two social studies teachers instructed their students to create art about their homelands, the architecture, and their culture. It was a way, they said, to instill pride. Using basic supplies (construction paper, Popsicle sticks, glue, paint, boxes, yarn, and pipe cleaners), students recreated colorful memories of their homelands that are beautiful and poignant. At the end of the project, students had produced over 400 pieces of artwork, some as individual artists and others are teams. There was no formal art training, although one talented youth provided instruction to his peers. The varied pieces in “Uncaged Art” demonstrate the talent and resilience of youth who had traveled thousands of miles to seek a new life.

Irene-Buchine.jpg

Irene Appleaum Buchine

Talks about her new book on childhood depression

“Celia and the Little Boy”

A story of two children trapped in the darkness.

And what it took from them to find their way out.

 

Wednesday Wisdom’s Pot Luck on:

Oct 10th, 5:30 PM

Mill Brook Gallery & Sculpture Garden

236 Hopkinton Road, Concord, NH

Free and Open to the public

 

A conversation, a shared experience that includes dialogue, questions and perhaps ever some answers. This interactive program will include a short reading of the book to serve as the starting point for this important conversation. The book gives hope to children in depression and serves as a gateway to the critical conversation with parents, siblings, grandparents, teachers, caregivers and anyone who knows or loves a child suffering, to connect with that child and to find hope.

 

Wednesday’s Wisdom Pot Luck is brought to you by the Mill Brook Gallery & Sculpture Garden and the Kimball Jenkins School of Art on the second Wednesday of each month.

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).
