Pecha Kucha Brunswick

| February 25, 2013 | 0 Comments

Five Rivers Arts Alliance, in cooperation with Women, Work and Community, announces the next

Pecha Kucha Brunswick,

Tuesday, March 5th, 6:00

at the Frontier Café in Brunswick, Maine. 

Attendance is free to Five Rivers Arts Alliance members, and a $10 admission fee to all non members.  Please call to reserve ahead of time.

Pecha Kucha originated in Japan in 2003 and has been globally embraced.  It consists of a group of diverse, creative personalities who present their ideas in twenty slides shown for 20 seconds each, thus echoing the title, Pecha Kucha, which in Japanese terms signifies “chit chat” or little conversations.

This session, presenters are a potpourri of artists in a lively evening with audience participation and visual enhancements.  Here are some of the approaches to their roughly 6 ½ minutes of presentation:

 

  • Hope Angier – Muralist, Hope, Maine:  Decorative interior painting using walls, stairs, cabinets and other surfaces in the home as the inspirational palette.
  • Jason Anthony – Writer, Damriscotta, Maine:  Author of Hoosh: Roast Penguin, Scurvy Day and Other Stories of Antarctic Cuisine, a presentation of Antarctica’s “hardworking cooks, desperate eaters, and questionable cuisine.”
  • Maria Castellano-Usery – Artist, Brunswick, Maine: There are so many things, places, and events we see every day. Frequently, we take these things, places, and events for granted, or we fail to realize the energy (or the potential) that is within. In my paintings, I try to express the essence (or the divine nature) within these things, places and/or events; in my mixed media pieces, I try to take ordinary objects and transform them into art that evokes thought and emotion.
  • Blake Hendrickson – Sculpter, Brunswick, Maine:  Winterfest – A Mini-Muse Event
  • Maureen Kenny – Independent Consultant/Art Nomad, Portland, Maine:  Need to Nomad: A Beaded Perspective.  “Since I found beads as my artistic outlet, the journey continues with deeper explorations on the history of beading, different uses for beads, and my own creations and designs.”
  • Bridget McAlonan – Artist, Topsham, Maine:  Paper Doll A Day 2012 project.  Creating a feminist paper doll every day pushing the concept of Women’s History Month further for 2013.
  • Linda Murray – Fine Art Painter/Instructor, Portland, Maine:  What is Decalcomania?  “Decalcomania entails using plastic wrap on wet pigment, which can be manipulated into an interesting composition, and then further developed when dry.”
  • Janet Redfield – Stained Glass Artist, Lincolnville, Maine: Maine’s Percent for Art project discussion of using stained glass works in schools, ferry terminals and libraries.

* Sarah Szwajkos Photography-  “I would like to share images from three personal photographic projects: Personal Space, Cantata, and Momento Mori.”

* Nanette Giacoma- Long Branch School, “We may not agree on the problems, but there is a common solution.  Small individual acts of sustainability!  That is what Long Branch School and General Store is all about.”

* Patricia Daunis-Dunning, jeweler- “The presentation would be about patterns* in our jewelry–obvious and the subtle: the metal inlays, woven textures, gemstone layout patterns, repetition of a form..”

* David Matera, architect, Bath, “The Lean Too House project demonstrates how remaining true to the original concept from the beginning of design, to siting the house and throughout construction created a well-thought out home.”

* Lucy Cooney, 10 x 10 arts organizer,Brunswick , “I would like to tell the community about the 10X10 Benefit Art Exhibit & Sale.”

* Tom Brudzinski, art/illustration- “In simplest terms, my presentation shows how one can deal with a single subject, in a variety of interesting ways, with art/illustration as the medium. In my case, the subject is “The Story of Lobsters.”

*Kay Mann, GreenEnergyMaine, ”the online hub of Maine’s evolving energy economy”.
