JÓHANN VILHJÁLMSSON
FROM ICELAND
Reading Asemic Writing

March 3 - April 28, 2019

CURATOR’S EVENT
Learning to Read & Write Again
March 9, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Jóhann Vilhjalmsson incorporates asemic writing in his art. What is asemic writing? Why does he use this in his art? We will see what the artist does, see what other artists do, and then go into writing our own asemic poems as we are nudged by the creative urges of our own minds. It will be a light, enjoyable experience together.

This is a FREE event that is open to all. Refreshments will be served.

DOORS IN IRAN

CURATOR’S EVENT
Persian Art & Culture
April 20, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Ziba Vishteh’s photographs of doors are full of suggestions in the great poetic traditions of Iran. Rumi, Hafez, Shamloo Omar Khayyam and other Persian poets incorporate the image of DOOR in various ways. Guests from Iran will read poems with these images and share some music, and an artist will illustrate writing a poem in Persian script for us as we share with our Iranian friends.

This is a FREE event that is open to all. Refreshments will be served.

LENTEN SERIES
Wednesdays, March 6 - April 10,
5:30 - 7 p.m.

On Wednesday nights throughout the Lenten season we will gather for a bowl of soup and a time of meditation/reflection. We will incorporate the verbal images of DOOR in the Bible, poetry from Iran, and the visual images in the ArtReach Gallery exhibition of photographs by Iranian artist Ziba Vishteh: Opening and Closing DOORS IN IRAN.

Each evening a different image of door will serve as a guide in our spiritual discipline related to personal and social justice concerns. We will reflect, sing, chant, and practice various forms of meditation.
