With timeless beauty, sacred arts reach deeper into the soul than words. They show us what is holy so that we might encounter the Source of all holiness. Steeped in artistic tradition, this exhibit raises up images that draw us into the mystery of the Real Presence. Many traditional methods showcased in this exhibit would be lost if not for devoted sacred artists who have toiled in isolated spaces around the country to preserve these ancient techniques.The Blessed Michael McGivney Pilgrimage Center is hosting this exhibition organized and curated by St. Edmund’s Sacred Art Institute, Mystic, Connecticut. Generous support for the exhibit is provided by the National Eucharistic Congress and the National Eucharistic Revival team.

The Kevin Saint James Band is a collective of professional New Haven area Jazz musicians brought together in collaboration with veteran saloon-singer Kevin Saint James. The band revisits, re-interprets and recreates true-to-form selections of classic jazz favorites and popular standards in a variety of artistic styles with a rare balance of musically "scientific" re-invention and profound reverence for historic significance and tradition. The band has a genuinely unique capacity for working spontaneous experimentation into their respectful reinterpretations of familiar popular standards that transport more mature audiences back in time to the sounds of days long ago, while recreating, re-introducing and perhaps even endearing these precious melodies to younger listeners at the same time.

Thursdays on the Dock has been a shoreline staple for 15 years and is still the destination for waterfront music. Each Thursday evening in July and August, bring a chair or blanket, listen to a free concert, and watch the sun go down over the river.

Our presenting sponsor Prive Swiss Wellness is always on hand offering free massages and giveaways.

From swing to Sinatra to Sting, Java Groove is a small 4-piece band with a big sound. It all started in 2015 by the founding members of the swing band, The Shiny Lapel Trio. The idea behind Java Groove is to have a stripped-down swing band with the same effect and vibe of a horn section.

The band consists of Dan Bernier on vocals and guitar, James Alio on guitar, Marc Iacobellis on bass guitar, and Todd Fitting on drums. Todd, James and Marc all went to middle school and high school together in Guilford, playing in various bands together. Dan was one of the founding members of The Zingerz, also playing swing music on the shoreline area.

Etching is a form of intaglio printing in which lines are incised into copper through a protected surface and then “etched” in acid. The process dates back to Durer and was used from the Renaissance to modern times. For the past few decades, contemporary printmakers have been developing ways to make printmaking less toxic. This class will explore etching that uses more environmentally friendly alternatives to traditional etching, including non-toxic grounds and water-based inks. Demos will feature different types of water-based inks, B.I.G. and Lascaux grounds, and coffee-lift techniques. Note: although this class is less- toxic, it still may still use products that highly sensitive people find irritating. Includes one 3-hour practice session per week during monitored practice hours. The tuition for this class includes a materials fee of $20 for basic materials provided by CAW.

EVERYDAY STORIES featuring the dynamic textile portraits of Clara Nartey will inhabit the Workshop Gallery at Ball & Socket Arts from Friday, June 28th to Sunday, August 18th.

The Workshop Gallery is located in Building 3 at Ball & Socket Arts. Gallery hours are: 12-4 pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (with extended hours during special events).

Everyday Stories : This exhibit highlights the stories of everyday people through textile portraits. I want to tell the stories of spirituality, identity, joy, excellence, hard work and struggle which are as old as humanity itself. For example, there’s the story of Sissieretta Jones who was so excellent as a musician she received so many accolades but died in poverty. And there’s the story of the African American woman beautifully adorned and dressed up for church on Sunday morning briefly leaving behind the struggles and difficulties of the prior week. Our stories are multifaceted. They’re not all roses. And they’re not all thorns. They’re more like rosebushes - beautiful and thorny at the same time.

 

About the Artist

Clara Nartey is a Ghana-born artist based in the U.S. After earning a masters degree in business, Nartey went on to develop a rigorous self-taught art practice. Her unique artistic style meshes mark- making using threads, with digital painting, machine embroidery, and quilting.

Nartey’s bold, colorful, and textured works have been exhibited widely including at Heather Gaudio Fine Art, Yellowstone Art Museum, Visions Museum of Textile Arts, and Morris Museum. Her work is held in both private and institutional collections like that of Yale University and Dana Hall.

"Try to Remember" a time when this romantic charmer by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt wasn't enchanting audiences.   The Fantasticks is the longest-running musical in the world and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love about a boy, a girl and the two parents who build a wall between them.  Its much-loved songs include Try to Remember, Soon It’s Gonna Rain, Much More and They Were You.

On Saturday, July 20th at 1 pm in the Workshop Gallery at Ball & Socket Arts hear directly from our exhibited artist, Clara Nartey in an Artist Talk about her practice, inspirations, and current work as a visual artist.

  About the Artist

Clara Nartey is a Ghana-born artist based in the U.S. After earning a masters degree in business, Nartey went on to develop a rigorous self-taught art practice. Her unique artistic style meshes mark- making using threads, with digital painting, machine embroidery, and quilting.

Nartey’s bold, colorful, and textured works have been exhibited widely including at Heather Gaudio Fine Art, Yellowstone Art Museum, Visions Museum of Textile Arts, and Morris Museum. Her work is held in both private and institutional collections like that of Yale University and Dana Hall.

Everyday Stories : This exhibit highlights the stories of everyday people through textile portraits. I want to tell the stories of spirituality, identity, joy, excellence, hard work and struggle which are as old as humanity itself. For example, there’s the story of Sissieretta Jones who was so excellent as a musician she received so many accolades but died in poverty. And there’s the story of the African American woman beautifully adorned and dressed up for church on Sunday morning briefly leaving behind the struggles and difficulties of the prior week. Our stories are multifaceted. They’re not all roses. And they’re not all thorns. They’re more like rosebushes - beautiful and thorny at the same time.

"Try to Remember" a time when this romantic charmer by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt wasn't enchanting audiences.   The Fantasticks is the longest-running musical in the world and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love about a boy, a girl and the two parents who build a wall between them.  Its much-loved songs include Try to Remember, Soon It’s Gonna Rain, Much More and They Were You.

Steeped in artistic tradition, this exhibit raises up images that draw us into the mystery of the Real Presence. Many traditional methods showcased in this exhibit would be lost if not for devoted sacred artists who have toiled in isolated spaces around the country to preserve these ancient techniques.The Blessed Michael McGivney Pilgrimage Center is hosting this exhibition organized and curated by St. Edmund’s Sacred Art Institute, Mystic, Connecticut. Generous support for the exhibit is provided by the National Eucharistic Congress and the National Eucharistic Revival team.

EVERYDAY STORIES featuring the dynamic textile portraits of Clara Nartey will inhabit the Workshop Gallery at Ball & Socket Arts from Friday, June 28th to Sunday, August 18th.

The Workshop Gallery is located in Building 3 at Ball & Socket Arts. Gallery hours are: 12-4 pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (with extended hours during special events).

Everyday Stories : This exhibit highlights the stories of everyday people through textile portraits. I want to tell the stories of spirituality, identity, joy, excellence, hard work and struggle which are as old as humanity itself. For example, there’s the story of Sissieretta Jones who was so excellent as a musician she received so many accolades but died in poverty.

SITE NO. 5: RIVERSIDE HABITATS

Sunday July 21

1–3pm

Riverbound Farm Sanctuary

1881 Cheshire Street, Cheshire

Parking lot at Sanctuary

The woods and wetlands at Riverbound Farm are not to be missed! Eric Eichorn will talk about the preserve's history and wildlife, and his involvement with the Audubon Society. Join as we learn and draw together!

— Quinnipiac is roughly translated to “long water land,” a name given by Indigenous peoples who lived along the river long before European settlement. Later, the river became intrinsically tied to the history of New Haven and many other towns in its watershed.

— After a brief talk we will explore the site and sketch, then share our drawings together as a group. 

— No drawing experience necessary! We use sketching as a tool for observing, capturing, and reflecting on our surroundings.

— Some art supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring your own.

— Bring water and sun/weather/bug protection. We will be next to a river, after all!

— Heavy rain will reschedule; check back for info. For more information about the project visit https://elycenter.org/long-water-land.

According to history buff Eric Chandler, the giants of the American Revolution stood on the shoulders of “little” people. And it is those common people—in particular, women—to whom Chandler intends to give credit during his upcoming presentation for the New Haven Museum, “Women in the American Revolution: Putting the 'Her' in Heroics,” at the Pardee-Morris House on Sunday, July 21, 2024, at 2 p.m. Register for this free NH250 event here: https://www.simpletix.com/e/women-in-the-american-revolution-putting-t-tickets-170159 For weather updates check FB/IG or call 203-562-4183. 

 

NHM Director of Programming and Planning Cindy Riccio notes that Chandler’s lecture is a good fit for NH250, an ongoing series of programming she’s developing at NHM to complement “America 250.” Culminating with the 250thanniversary of the Declaration of Independence, the NH250 series will highlight inclusive, local, and lesser-known stories, connecting past and present. Chandler is completely on board. “I’d like to show that what each of us does, when taken collectively, can have a huge effect on the trajectory of history,” he says. 

 

Chandler will highlight women—some famous, others relatively unknown—who generally saw a job that needed to be done and took mattters into ther own hands, including:

·      Deborah Sampson, who fought disguised as a man in the 4th Massachusetts Regiment,                       

·      Elizabeth "Betty" Zane, who, in the face of danger, demanded to bring badly needed ammunition to her embattled outpost.

·      Sybil Ludington, who rode to call the Duchess County militia to march to save Danbury, Connecticut.

·      Margaret Corbin, a/k/a “Molly Pitcher,” who became a mythical heroine of the American Revolution

“The role of women seemed a natural topic leading up to 250th, and I wanted to go beyond the ‘Founding Mothers.’” Chandler says. “What about the unknown heroines? Further, women are still fighting to have their place as equal at the table.” 

 

Chandler asks that visitors consider the apocryphal tales about George Washington that were taken as historic gospel for many years, with no basis in fact. “Yet, when it comes to women, unless it was written into the contemporary record, then it ‘didn’t happen,’” Chandler adds. He notes that one of the stories he shares is about Nancy Hart Morgan, whose actions during the Revolutionary War were family lore, and adds the story was substantiated by physical evidence in 1913, 125 years after the fact.

“My idea of a good picture is one that’s in focus and of a famous person” – Andy Warhol.

 Artists throughout history have focused on and painted the rich and famous. Even during the Renaissance, rich patrons, such as the Medici family, would commission artists to create portraits of them and decorate their lavish homes. Fast-forward to today and many celebrities still continue this tradition, commissioning and buying artwork from well-known artists.

During this week, students will learn about how celebrities are presented in contemporary artwork. They will then use what they learned to create a mixed-media portrait of their chosen celebrity that is visually interesting, textural, and layered, using various materials and techniques.

Tuition for this class includes a fee of $20 for basic materials provided by CAW.

There are many variations of the accordion book used in both traditional and artistic bookbinding.

Come learn this terrific variation, where the pages are cardboard panels hinged together with the whipstitch sewing. This kind of sewing allows for a totally flexible hinge area. The sewing can also be extended to be decorative around the edges of each panel. The board pages will display your decorative papers, photographs, artwork, printed images or other ephemera. You may also choose to use provided decorative paper or maps.

Students will make one version with rectangular panels and there will be a demonstration of a version with free-formed shaped panels.

Note that this is not an archival book and the pages might touch each other. It is not suitable for valuable photographs or materials that smudge.

Beginners welcome as many basic techniques of book binding will be included.

Enrollment in this class includes one 3 hour monitored open bench session a week

The tuition for this class includes a materials fee of $20 for basic materials provided by CAW.

This week, we will learn about real pirates & sailors—what they did, what they looked like, and where they traveled. We will dress in pirate garb as we learn about the vessels they sailed, the flags they flew, and how they navigated.

May 11 – August 25, 2024Open Wednesday – Sunday from 10am to 4pm with free parking & admission except Independence Day (Thursday, July 4).Do This In Memory Of Me is an unprecedented juried exhibition of sacred art created to draw God’s people into deeper intimacy with our Lord in the holy Eucharist.Across the ages, visual arts have turned hearts and minds towards the sacred. With timeless beauty, sacred arts reach deeper into the soul than words. They show us what is holy so that we might encounter the Source of all holiness. Steeped in artistic tradition, this exhibit raises up images that draw us into the mystery of the Real Presence. Many traditional methods showcased in this exhibit would be lost if not for devoted sacred artists who have toiled in isolated spaces around the country to preserve these ancient techniques.The Blessed Michael McGivney Pilgrimage Center is hosting this exhibition organized and curated by St. Edmund’s Sacred Art Institute, Mystic, Connecticut. Generous support for the exhibit is provided by the National Eucharistic Congress and the National Eucharistic Revival team.
