All Day Speak, Object Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)

The work in the exhibit ranges from repeated forms to found items tenderly wrapped to rubber molds of transformed objects. In addition to the work curated for the exhibition, each artist has been asked to choose an object from their private collection to be part of their display, adding another layer of narrative and a way of thinking about what an artist is compelled to make. 

Participating artists: Caleb Cole, Judy Haberl, Steve Locke, Greg Mencoff, Janice Redman

Reception: Thursday November 30, 5:30 -7:30 p.m.

Gallery Talk: Artists as Collectors 6:00 p.m.

End Day Chanukah (Multi-Day event) (Multi-Day Event)
Jewish holyday: Chanukah (Dedication) begins at sunset the evening before the 25th day of the month of Kislev, in remembrance of how the vastly outnumbered Jews, led by the Maccabees, miraculously won a major victory in 168 BCE against the occupying Syrians, who had outlawed Judaism and defiled the Temple of Jerusalem by worshipping idols of Greek Gods. After their victory, the Jews rededicated the Holy Temple to G-D by relighting the ner tamid(Eternal Light), but there was only enough oil for one day. Miraculously, the oil lasted 8 days, until more could be secured, so the light of the Temple could burn constantly.[i] A celebration of Jewish identity, religious freedom, and the triumph of light over darkness, the Festival of Lights is characterized by lighting an additional candle in the menorah each night. Other customs include making latkes, giving children Chanukah gelt (money or chocolate coins), and playing dreidel (a spinning top with the Hebrew lettersnungimmelhei and shin which stands for Nes Gadol Hayah Sham, meaning "a Great Miracle Happened There”).[ii]

All Day Litha
Pagan/Wiccan holyday: The Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. Many agricultural societies have observed the longest day of the year in some way: Stone Henge was created to glorify the rising of the sun on the Summer Solstice, the Saxons and Celts built bonfires to celebrate the power of the sun over darkness, and the Romans had a festival for Juno, wife of Jupiter, the Goddess of marriage, women, menstruation, and children during Midsummer. A time of fertility, growth, warmth, and light, Litha is one of the 8 Sabbats of the Wheel of the Year for modern Pagans and Wiccans.[i]

All Day Yule
Pagan/Wiccan holyday: The Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. In the darkest of winter, Yule celebrates the return of the sun, when the days begin to get longer again and bring more light into the world, with feasting and merrymaking. Decorating a tree, wreathes, the Yule log, and caroling come from ancient Norse traditions. Yule is also associated with Odin and the Wild Hunt, a ghostly procession of horsemen through the sky—which became Santa Claus and his flying reindeer. Romans held feasts, decorated trees with tin ornaments, practiced fertility rites under mistletoe, and exchanged gifts during the week-long festival of Saturnalia. The Celts believed the Oak King and the Holly King fought at this time of year to see if light or darkness would win out, which some Wiccans re-enact as part of their celebrations today.[i] Yule is one of the 8 Sabbats of the Wheel of the Year for modern Pagans and Wiccans.
