The Willits Center for the Arts presents three artists

Nancy New tells us: “Pottery has always fascinated me. The process of transforming wet clay into every imaginable form, from submitting to extreme heat and turning into a stone capable of withstanding the passage of time has been going on for thousands of years. Each piece is new, with endless choices and creative possibilities.

Anita Elliott-Wagenet is originally from Malibu and is now a longtime resident of Willits. Since retiring from registered nursing, she can now devote more time to her artistic hobbies, music and pottery. His ceramic pieces are often created with an unconventional touch, incorporating sand from his favorite beaches or magical herbs directly into the clay, giving each bowl, dish or mug a certain subtle essence. With hand-carved butterflies, bees or dragonflies encircling the bowls, most pieces will have art deco textures and patterns, as well as seascapes, moonscapes, flowers, cats, horses and llamas.

Suzi Long will present Feathered Feet, a delightful show of watercolors, birds and shoes. Suzi was born in Santa Cruz and before calling herself “Artist” she was a Xerox technician, word processor and editor, and began her 9-5 life as an executive secretary after graduating in 1966 from Katharine Gibbs School, New York.

In Honolulu after Xerox, Suzi studied art at UH, painted panels and murals, and established her Whimsy Walls mural business in 1978. She returned to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1987 and painted hundreds of residential and restaurant murals from Palm Springs to Squaw Valley. . Suzi is fortunate enough to share her visions, and when she learned at the age of 50 that her biological grandfather was a decorative painter and muralist, she finally understood her purpose.

The exhibition opens Friday, June 25 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and runs until July 25. The gallery is located at 71 E. Commercial St. (next to the Noyo Theater). They are open from Friday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

New Brunswick dancers work to create a vibrant dance scene for adults http://tadasei.com/new-brunswick-dancers-work-to-create-a-vibrant-dance-scene-for-adults/ http://tadasei.com/new-brunswick-dancers-work-to-create-a-vibrant-dance-scene-for-adults/#respond Sat, 19 Jun 2021 11:00:11 +0000 http://tadasei.com/new-brunswick-dancers-work-to-create-a-vibrant-dance-scene-for-adults/

When Sam Black decided he wanted to become a professional dancer, he saw no choice but to leave New Brunswick.

“I knew I wanted to continue dancing, and I knew there weren’t a lot of options for school. [here],” he said.

Black, originally from Fredericton, began taking dance lessons at the age of three. After high school, he packed his bags and headed to Toronto to attend Randolph College for Performing Arts. Black graduated from the Performing Arts program in 2017 and went on to audition and book commercial concerts, including a role in Disney’s Zombies 2.

“If I [stayed], I don’t know if I would have grown up the same as a dancer or a performer, ”he said.

New Brunswick dancers say there are few local opportunities for adults who want to practice various genres of dance, with most studios focusing on children’s classes.

Black, who specializes in contemporary dance, was training in New York City just before the pandemic hit in March 2020. He has been in New Brunswick since, but hopes to return one day.

Black says he doesn’t think it’s impossible to have a dancing career in New Brunswick, but a city like Toronto or New York can offer a new perspective on dance.

Since leaving Fredericton and studying performing arts in Toronto, Black has starred in Disney’s Zombies 2. (Disney)

“If you’re from here and that’s all you know, it’s really telling to go somewhere else to see what other dancers are like and learn that way.”

Look up and down for adult classes

After spending nine years in Toronto and frequenting drop-in studios that offer classes in everything from hip hop to heels to reggaeton, Samantha Shea wanted to continue dancing in Fredericton, but couldn’t find anything. for her.

“When I came back from Toronto, I looked up and down for places that offered adult classes,” she said.

The lack of opportunities prompted Shea to start running high heel and jazz funk classes all over town. After finding success, Shea was approached by another local dancer, Brittany Wassef, to open a walk-in studio that would offer classes like the ones she took in Toronto.

Jungle House Dance Co. has been in Fredericton for two years, offering classes in genres ranging from hip hop to Kpop. The lessons are mainly intended for adult beginners.

“The dance scene in Toronto is so solid. I was really challenged there,” said Shea. “The only thing I wanted to do differently with Jungle House was to make it a very welcoming experience for people who think, ‘Oh, I can’t dance.'”

Dance as an art form

Shelby Harnish began taking hip hop and jazz lessons at age three and competed in dance as a teenager in Fredericton. However, as she got older, she said her options were getting limited.

“When I finished my competitive years, there really wasn’t much on the table. In New Brunswick, we are absolutely lacking in opportunities for anyone above high school age to pursue any type of dance, ”she said.

When Harnish decided to return to dancing as an adult, she began taking lessons from Shea. It was there that she developed her love for the heel genre and was inspired to start her own dance company, Out of My Shel.

Harnish offers classes and workshops as well as private sessions for dancers for individuals and groups. Its goal is to eventually provide opportunities for dancers interested in performing and to increase the visibility of dance as an art form in Fredericton, said Shea.

“Dance should be considered an art in our city. There must be as many opportunities for the dancers as for any other artist in New Brunswick.

While there might not be as many places to go locally to grow up as an adult dancer, Shea said the pandemic has provided more opportunities to virtually learn from skilled dancers elsewhere.

“It’s something that’s available online – the opportunity to teach and learn from so many different people all over the world. It’s a huge bonus.”

Hudson celebrates Juneteenth with Sunday festival | Colombia County http://tadasei.com/hudson-celebrates-juneteenth-with-sunday-festival-colombia-county/ http://tadasei.com/hudson-celebrates-juneteenth-with-sunday-festival-colombia-county/#respond Fri, 18 Jun 2021 23:17:46 +0000 http://tadasei.com/hudson-celebrates-juneteenth-with-sunday-festival-colombia-county/

HUDSON – As Hudson celebrates June 15 this weekend, an organizer welcomes everything but encourages people to be aware of the space they occupy at the Black Cultural Festival.

Juneteenth – June 19 – is the day to commemorate the end of slavery in the United States. President Joe Biden this week signed a law making Juneteenth a federal holiday.

Poet and artist Ifetayo Cobbins and drummer Ngounga Badila will perform on an outdoor stage in front of the Flow Chart Foundation at 348 Warren St. at 3 p.m. Saturday. The event is free and open to the public.

The second annual Hudson’s Juneteenth celebration will have festivities from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday. The event, originally scheduled for Saturday but changed to Sunday due to rain forecasts, is hosted by Tanya Jackson of Hudson.

Last year’s celebration took place in the form of a block party around Bliss Towers. Jackson described Bliss Towers as the zero point for black residents of Hudson who have been displaced and relocated there.

The event included a DJ, free food, a drum circle, street activities for kids, black history coloring pages, and community conversations, including one led by members of the LGBTQ community. and another run by elders.

This year’s waterfront event will be a celebration, Jackson said.

The festival is free and open to the public, but its target audience is the black community, Jackson said. While everyone is welcome, those outside the community should be aware of the space they are taking up – for example, giving way to a black person if an activity is full.

“We welcome everyone but we want people to pay attention,” she said, adding that the purpose of the event is to celebrate black culture and freedom.

The activities are designed to reach all age groups, targeting children, teens, adults and the elderly, Jackson said.

“We try to have intergenerational activities that are both specific to certain age groups, but also invite different ages to come together and do things together,” she said.

There will be craft tables with paint, watercolors, and coloring sheets, lawn activities, and a waterslide.

Participants can join a crochet circle, a braiding workshop, and learn the basics from a local barber.

There will be visual exhibits exposing and honoring Black Hudson’s cultural institutions, past and present.

Jackson has researched black community spaces that no longer exist in the city and believes that each generation has lost a space centered on black culture.

Jackson grew up in Hudson and when she returned to adulthood she struggled to bring black history together in the city. Jackson wants to help create an archive in the future.

On Sunday, people can decorate quilt patches into a community quilt, which Jackson hopes will be assembled in time for the Black Arts Festival in August.

A photographer will take free portraits, which Jackson hopes will fill the pages of a community photo album.

There will also be vendors in the park who didn’t have to pay a fee to set up, Jackson said.

“A lot of black residents do things as entrepreneurs, but they don’t have space, so community events become the place where they can sell their artwork and goods,” she said.

Jackson pointed out that the event is free.

“There is no charge for people to attend,” she said. “There is no cost for sellers to sell. We are not trying to make money. We’re just trying to keep some space for the community as best we can. “

The Hudson Tourist Board, Spark of Hudson and Out Hudson all donated to the event, along with countless community members who made in-kind donations or provided services at a discounted rate. , such as Randall Martin’s audiovisual services, Waterfront Wednesday, workshop leaders, Signs & Wonders, A and G Amusements Party Rentals and Staples, Jackson said. Workshop foremen who receive honoraria incurred for the event before they know they might get one, she added.

“People really come out and say, how can we help? ” she said.

Melodious Thunk, a jazz and world music festival, begins at 3 p.m. with a free music workshop followed by performances at 4 p.m. Groups play until 9 p.m.

After the music, there will be the screening of “Miss Juneteenth” at 9pm

Jackson has mixed feelings about Juneteenth being recognized as a federal holiday, saying the recognition is good, but she is concerned about how federal holidays are commodified.

“I have mixed feelings about this,” she said. “I love the recognition as part of American history. It could be in front of the world in really dealing with American history, in terms of the recognition and type of slavery reconciliation, but the way things get merchant and superficial is where I’m really hesitant. .

As Juneteenth aims to celebrate healing and love for black people, the community continues to struggle, Jackson said.

“Tomorrow and next time, and until June 17, 2022, we have real community issues,” she said. “So what makes me nervous about federalizing things about something that we’re still struggling with is where I hesitate. “

As an example, Jackson saw a flyer from a car dealership about people getting out of interest rates.

Jackson doesn’t think people really understand the meaning of the party, she added.

“While black Americans have celebrated Juneteenth since 1865, it is very recent that so many other people are aware of it,” Jackson said.
