    Dear Artist,

    Since its founding almost 40 years ago, the Montclair State University Art Galleries have lived its mission to propogate culture and art through interpretive modern and contemporary art exhibitions and the presentation of related events using its collection as well as local, statewide, and international sources.

    Art Connections is the annual fund-raising event for the George Segal Gallery - the crown jewel of the Montclair State Art Galleries. Now in its ninth year, Art Connections has grown from a regional exhibit to one of national scope, encouraging artists in all mediums. 

    We are inviting artists to apply to this exhibit, which offers an excellent opportunity for exposure and sales in a venue that is widely supported by Montclair State University's alumni, gallery patrons, and the area's many collectors, curators, and art dealers.

    Past exhibits have included works by many noted artists: ceramist Toshiko Takaeshu, painters Julie Heffernan, Michael Eade, Bisa Washington, Ben Jones, and Cora Cohen, and sculptors Willie Cole, Chakaia Booker, and Tom Nussbaum. 

    Proceeds from this event support exhibitions at the George Segal Gallery and care of the University's permanent collection. We look forward to a successful event.

    The George Segal Gallery is located adjacent to the Alexander Kasser Theater.  
The gallery can also be accessed from the 4th level of the Red Hawk Parking Deck.  About the George Segal Gallery

    When: August 12, 2012
    Time: 4:00 pm

    Please join us for a fun, family-friendly summer’s afternoon performance by singer-songwriter & guitarist Gary Reed who will perform in the beautiful historic garden of Macculloch Hall Historical Museum.

    Mr. Reed has reemerged as an accomplished and contemporary voice -- with lyrics that resonate from that earlier time.  An outstanding guitar player and performer, he is a premier fingerstyle guitar player and guitar champion winner who writes and plays unique solo guitar arrangements ranging from Joplin to the Beatles, New Age to Yazoo and “Finger Popping” original tunes. His style comes out of the 1960’s revival of the black blues guitar players and performed with guitar guys from New York City and San Francisco. Gary started his performing career in the Village in the late sixties and early seventies being a regular player at the Bitter End, Folk City, Café Wah, Max’s Kansas City, The Village Gate and most of the clubs in the Village at that time. He had the opportunity to open for some great players such as: Jerry Jeff Walker, Billy Joel, Randy Newman, Joe Walsh and Jeremy Steig.

     

    Gary will perform in the Garden at 4pm.  Visitors will have the opportunity to explore through a variety of summer blooms in the garden and relax on the large lawn during the program. Guests may bring picnics, blankets or chairs and settle back for a late afternoon of great music in a beautiful setting. Travelling Treats Ice Cream Company will have a variety of treats on sale throughout the performance.  If you would like to get a taste of Gary’s music, visit his website www.reverbnation.com/garyreed.

     

    Tickets can be purchased from 1pm on performance day and will give guests an opportunity to experience Macculloch Hall Historical Museum before heading out to the garden for the concert.  The museum is open for tours of the home and galleries from 1pm, with the last house tour leaving at 3pm.  Enjoy the current exhibit The Other Side of War: The Civil War on the Home Front.  Life on the home front was not easy for loved ones whom the soldiers left behind. Women played an important role in the Union war effort; starting the U.S. Sanitary Commission, serving as nurses, gathering goods and raising money for the soldiers all contributed to the Union victory. The exhibit features letters to loved ones back home, Lincoln memorabilia from the Museum's collection including a plate from his White House china, and a document signed by Lincoln as President and also by the Secretary of War.  The Museum will remain open until 4pm when the performance begins.  Admission is Adults $8; Seniors & Students $6; Children 6 – 12 $4.

    MHHM_2011 Japanese Program_Kenny Chin & Anna Nakada (courtesy of Stan Freeny)

    Location: 45 Macculloch Ave, Morristown, NJ 07960
    When: August 19, 2012
    Time: 1:00 pm–4:00 pm

    Macculloch Hall Historical Museum is proud to present the very popular Japanese Drums and Ikebana Art program.  This presentation proved to be a crowd favorite last year and performers Marco Lienhard (who replaces Kenny Chin) and Anna Nakada plan on a similarly engaging program in the colorful and elegant gardens of Macculloch Hall. The gardens were restored in the 1950s by the Garden Club of Morristown and are planted for seasonal bloom. In spring, daffodils and tulips are followed by the magnificent wisteria on the back porch. Commodore Matthew Perry, who opened Japan to American trading in the mid-1850s, brought the wisteria planted along the rear porch arbor as a gift circa 1857 to the Miller family who resided at Macculloch Hall. The garden’s magnificent wisteria inspires the program on Sunday, August 19th from 1pm – 4pm, bringing together the Japanese style drumming known as Taiko, performed by Marco Lienhard and the beautiful Japanese art form of Ichiyo Ikebana, with Anna Nakada, for an engaging afternoon of music and living art in spectacular surroundings. 

     

    Both guest artists have a wide background and deep appreciation for their specialty.  Marco Lienhard studied the shakuhachi under Master Katsuya Yokoyama, quickly mastering the instrument and becoming a virtuoso solo artist. Marco Lienhard was a member of Ondekoza from 1981-1994. While touring as a professional taiko player in Japan, Lienhard also studied the fue and the nohkan (Noh theater flute) with Masayuki Isso. He has toured, the US, Japan, Mexico and Europe. Lienhard has performed more than 3000 concerts in Europe, Oceania, Asia and North and South America with appearances at some of the world’s most prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Boston Symphony Hall, Osaka Castle Hall, Hong Kong Cultural Center and Suntory Hall in Tokyo. He has contributed to many movies, documentaries and CDs and has appeared on many TV shows including the Regis and Kathie Lee Show, the PBS special A World of Performances (the 20th Anniversary Gala of Wolf Trap), and NBC's 1998 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Marco will play periodically throughout the afternoon while Anna Nakada puts together a large-size arrangement of Ichiyo Ikebana.

     

    Anna Nakada is a Master of the Ichiyo School of Ikebana and will utilize the branches from a recent trimming of the historic wisteria in the Macculloch Hall garden to create her Ikebana installation. Anna teaches Ichiyo Ikebana classes and demonstrates and gives workshops in the U.S. and abroad. Typically, an Ichiyo demonstrator makes an effort to show the audience every step of the process by which an arrangement is created, as he/she engages in an exchange with plants, flowers, containers and the surroundings. The Ichiyo artist strives to make flowers come alive, hopefully in a beautiful, profound and natural way and in the process tries to learn more about life and oneself; in other words, the “way” of flowers. 

    The program will begin at 1pm. Both Ms. Nakada and Mr. Lienhard will provide opportunities for the audience to participate and learn about these art forms. Visitors may also tour the variety of plantings in seasonal bloom, and relax on the large lawn during the program. Guests are welcome to bring chairs or blankets. There will be house tours of the period rooms of the museum, which leave throughout the afternoon starting at 1pm, with the last tour leaving at 3pm. Tours will visit upstairs gallery exhibits Thomas Nast: President Maker and Campaign Breaker and The Other Side of War: The Civil War on the Home Front.  After touring visitors may return to the garden to enjoy the program. In the case of inclement weather the program will be moved indoors. We are pleased to offer accessible restroom facilities during garden events this summer. Tickets can be purchased on the day from 1pm onwards. Admission is Adults $8; Seniors & Students $6; Children 6 – 12 $4. Members and children under 5 are free.

    The Loft at the South Orange Performing Arts Center Welcomes

    Story Dances® Beginning September 16th

     

    Contact: Sheila Rees: 973-669-1294

     

    (South Orange, NJ) August13, 2012 – Registration is currently underway for Story Dances, an exciting dance and creative movement program for preschool children, in The Loft at the South Orange Performing Arts Center from September 16 to December 16, 2012. Parents may register their children by visiting www.storydances.com. Tuition for the 14 week spring session is $280.00. The 45 minute classes are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays @9:30am.

     

    Twenty years ago when Sheila Rees finished her graduate work at Temple University in the Dance Department, STORY DANCES was a way to engage young children in creative movement classes by making up stories around movement words. These stories enabled children to use their imagination and creativity to explore movement when they jumped like superheroes, twirled like spinning tops, galloped like horses, and flew in the air like beautiful butterflies. Could they jump high like a kangaroo and jump low like a frog? What level does a bunny jump?

     

    Students responded enthusiastically and were soon using dance to express their ideas and make dances that were personal to each child. They weren't aware that they were also developing collaboration and cooperation skills, sharpening their movement skills, enhancing their coordination, and supporting their brain development. They only knew they were having fun.

     

    One of their favorite dances was “Jay Jay the Caterpillar” who stretches his furry body, rolls around on the ground, slashes his arms and stamps his feet to get out of the cocoon in his journey from egg to caterpillar to butterfly.

     

    Today, having fun while telling stories through dance continues to be a priority in STORY DANCES. More stories have been added to the repertoire. They are backed up by research on active learning and the ways in which the arts facilitate the education of young children. When children link dance with stories they expand their movement vocabulary as well as their literacy skills; setting the stage for learning in reading, writing, science and math. They consistently make choices, initiate ideas and actions and demonstrate their independence within a supportive environment.

    On Monday August 20, 2012, Northern NJ Professionals in Transition will be meeting at the Maplewood Library, 51 Baker Street, Maplewood, New Jersey.  Our session begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 12 noon.  Our presenter will be Irina Gomelskaya, a Certified Life and Career Coach.  Irina's roots are as an attorney, and as such she often works with attorneys through their career transition issues.  She is also a mother of two and works with women to help guide them through the career decisions of having both a career and raising a family.  Further, Ms. Gomelskaya also has been lead facilitator at Maplewood's Neighbors Helping Neighbors sessions since their origin in February of 2012.


    Irina will be presenting about 2 types of interviews.  One is the Informational Interview, with which one seeks to build their knowledge about a profession and what is happening in it, by speaking with experts in the field.  The other is a Behavioral Interview, in which the person interviewing you is seeking to gain feedback about whether you would be a good fit for their organization.  For those who would like to improve their interviewing skills and increase contact with others through their job search, this presentation is a must.  

    Join us.  
    All are welcome—tell your friends/neighbors/colleagues/associates…  
    We always allow time for open networking, both before and after the session.
