Ancestral Memory Fiber works by Lauren Bristol TI Art Center


ANCESTRAL MEMORY
April 11 – June 9
Public Reception: May 25, 5:30-6:30pm

Elegant and harmonious, fiber artist Lauren Bristol’s sculptural baskets are made using the labor-intensive process of coiling. Tightly wrapping Egyptian cotton around a fiber core, Bristol lets her intuition guide her through the formation of her vessels, a rhythmic and meditative process essential in the balance of her creative process. She draws on the ideas of primal chaos, the nurturing/nourishing deep, and the original container of life force potential for inspiration. Spiritually potent objects, her baskets reference the mother, Her Body, and Her Womb through the use of shape, color, and positive/negative space. Each piece celebrates aspects of the cyclic and spiraling nature of life energy through the subtle congruence of myth, etymology and physics.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Lauren Bristol (b. 1958, Syracuse, NY) studied Art and Education at The University of Texas at Austin ’77-‘84. She has maintained a full-time studio since 1984. Bristol is working from an intuitive feeling for the primal chaos, the nurturing/nourishing deep, the original container of life-force potential. The Mother, Her Womb, Her Body. Bristol’s work celebrates the cyclic and spiraling nature of life energy through the subtle congruence of myth, etymology and physics. Her work has been published in several books and journals. She has participated in numerous juried exhibitions from 1984 to the present.

Bristol currently lives and works in Syracuse, NY.

Some basic drawing skills are helpful, but not necessary.

Interested in writing and illustrating children’s books or creating an illustrated memory book of your experiences? Join artist and children’s book author, Helen Cardamone in a week-long experience that will teach you ways to do just that!

Bring in your favorite stories, memories, and photos and we’ll use those as a launching pad to explore and develop your story through illustration and dialogue. Emphasis will be on the research and drawing skills needed to develop strong characters in sequential imagery as you tell your story. You’ll need a sketchpad, pencils, and your favorite art mediums to practice and sketch out your draft.

There are a few different outcomes to choose for your final book project, depending on your intentions for your book:

*You can leave on the last class day with a final book that illustrates your story. If you decide to go with this option, we can either provide you with a nice book where your story will live or you can choose to bring your own. If needed, we can give you some pointers on what to look for while you shop for a book or send you links.

*If you are interested in going beyond this experience and making a professional book to print, Helen will show you how to upload photos of your illustrations and put them into a template on a bookmaking website called blurb.com. The illustrations and dialogue you create during the week in your sketchbook can be photographed and uploaded to create a finished professional looking book. Please note that the average cost to purchase your printed book is $40. The price will change according to the style/format of book and amount of pages. This is the cost of a 23 page glossy book so your price may vary.

He is the author of twelve collections of poetry.

Brockville TALL SHIPS Festival


Brockville Announces Dates for 2022 Tall Ships® Festival
The Brockville Tall Ships® Festival Committee is proud to announce that Brockville will host the city’s 4th Tall Ships Festival from June 24-26, 2022. The festival will be held on Blockhouse Island and Hardy Park and will be Ontario’s biggest Tall Ships Festival this year.
The local committee which is led by volunteers has been planning this event for several months now.
“City Council unanimously endorsed the festival last October and since that time, Committee members in conjunction with City staff, have been working diligently to produce the best event possible to kick start our tourism for the coming season here in Brockville.” says Committee Chair, Brian Burns.
As part of the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Great Lakes 2022, Brockville is the First Port of Call and one of only two Ontario ports on the upcoming circuit. The other ports include Cleveland, Ohio; Midland, Ontario; Two Harbours, Minnesota; and Erie, Pennsylvania.
In Brockville, local tall ship Fair Jeanne, will be joined by Empire Sandy, Nao Trinidad (the Spanish galleon previously known as Santa Maria), Playfair, St. Lawrence II, and newly constructed, local vessel Mimi Jane.
Festival Passports, which grant access to the ships for deck tours and the festival grounds for all three days, will be available as will the Festival wristband that allows access for all three days to the grounds only (does not include deck tours). Tickets for sail outs and sunset cruises will also be available for purchase. Festival passports will be able for advance purchase for $15, or at the gate for $20, while wristbands will be available for $10.
A significant change to this year’s festival is the addition of a professional entertainment stage on Blockhouse Island. The headliner will be the “Shantyman”, Séan McCann, a founder of the iconic Canadian folk rock band “Great Big Sea”. In addition, on-stage entertainment will include Indigenous Experiences -Drum Group and First Nations Dancers, and local musical entertainment. Entertainment around the festival grounds will include the Leeds County Draft Horse Club’s Touch-a-Horse display, ‘Capt’n Tor’ – Canada’s premier theatrical Pirate Troupe, and other displays and vendors. Further programming details will be released in the months leading up to the festival.
“We are excited to have this festival on the horizon as something to look forward to attending this summer. Having a big draw like this festival will help support our local tourism and hospitality sector and give a boost to our local economy.” Brockville Mayor, Mike Kalivas.
New for 2022 will be packaging opportunities to explore more of what Brockville has to offer, available at the time of purchase from our online ticket vendor. Additional opportunities to “show your festival passport and save” at local businesses will also be available.
Tickets are now on sale on through the Brockville Arts Centre online box office at www.brockvilleartscentre.com with direct links available at www.tallshipsbrockville.com/tickets

Clayton Community Band Concert – Clayton Opera House


-

Our band is made up of members that come from all over the North Country. Although many live in Clayton, Watertown or surrounding communities in Jefferson County, some of our musicians travel from St. Lawrence and Lewis Counties. We have a few members from even farther away who spend summers in the Clayton area and we welcome them back to play with us each summer season. We also come from many different walks of life. Some of our performers are life-long musicians either as performers or educators in local schools, some are professionals in other areas, and some have retired from their careers and are just looking for a fun and relaxing way to get involved in the community. Despite our differences we all come together each week to rehearse the music that we love sharing with our dedicated audiences. All members are listed in the programs for each of our concerts.

The philosophy of the Clayton Community Band is to afford any dedicated individual, who previously or currently plays a band instrument, an outlet to perform in rehearsal and public performance.

Preparation and presentation of concert band music is geared toward continuous education and enjoyment by the performers, while entertaining and educating the residents and guests of Clayton and surrounding communities through diversified programs of band literature. Working as a team to interpret and convey to an audience any select or particular selection of band music develops a serene sense of camaraderie. Great friendships are born through music, whether by working together as a team or by enjoying a live performance of musicians of various ages with diversified backgrounds performing for the love of music.

For the performers and audience, we feel that music heals the heart and soothes the soul.

Paula Cole- Pop/Rock at the Clayton Opera House


-

Grammy Award winner Paula Cole was the first sole woman (without collaborators) nominated as Producer of the Year. Paula won the Grammy for Best New Artist of the Year in 1997 and has been nominated for seven other Grammys in her career. Her album of originals, Revolution, was deemed by Pop Matters as “an exceptional piece of work, a timely reminder of how soulful and perceptive a writer and singer Cole is and has always been.” Her legions of fans would agree.

Her second album and major-label debut, This Fire, included the timeless hits, “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?” and “I Don’t Want to Wait” (later the theme song for the hit TV series Dawson’s Creek). With a musical catalog defined by honest and deeply personal lyrics, carried by her powerful, radiant voice, Paula has always had a gift for discerning the underlying humanity in stories from her own life as well as those around her, and channeling those emotional elements into captivating music. Her most recent album, American Quilt, features “Hidden in Plain Sight (I Dream)”, a lyrically and sonically multi-layered composition.

The Steeldrivers- Bluegrass at Clayton Opera House


-

Throughout their career-one that encompasses four highly acclaimed albums and any number of awards and accolades (including a Grammy) – the band has demonstrated the ability to change with unwavering persistence. Theirs’ is a lingering legacy defined by quality and consistency. It’s one in which they’ve never stopped looking forward, successfully marshalling their resources for wherever that trajectory takes them. Some people describe their music as being bluegrass based, but the fact is, they are not bound to any one regimen. They liken themselves to what the Rolling Stones would sound like if they played banjos, fiddles and mandolins – it’s that rock-n-roll edge played on traditional instruments.

Clayton Community Band Concert – Clayton Opera House


-

Our band is made up of members that come from all over the North Country. Although many live in Clayton, Watertown or surrounding communities in Jefferson County, some of our musicians travel from St. Lawrence and Lewis Counties. We have a few members from even farther away who spend summers in the Clayton area and we welcome them back to play with us each summer season. We also come from many different walks of life. Some of our performers are life-long musicians either as performers or educators in local schools, some are professionals in other areas, and some have retired from their careers and are just looking for a fun and relaxing way to get involved in the community. Despite our differences we all come together each week to rehearse the music that we love sharing with our dedicated audiences. All members are listed in the programs for each of our concerts.

The philosophy of the Clayton Community Band is to afford any dedicated individual, who previously or currently plays a band instrument, an outlet to perform in rehearsal and public performance.

Preparation and presentation of concert band music is geared toward continuous education and enjoyment by the performers, while entertaining and educating the residents and guests of Clayton and surrounding communities through diversified programs of band literature. Working as a team to interpret and convey to an audience any select or particular selection of band music develops a serene sense of camaraderie. Great friendships are born through music, whether by working together as a team or by enjoying a live performance of musicians of various ages with diversified backgrounds performing for the love of music.

For the performers and audience, we feel that music heals the heart and soothes the soul.

Tickets are $8 & $6 (Balcony Center & everywhere else)

New York Voices- Jazz at Clayton Opera House


-

New York Voices was born in the mid-1980s at upstate New York’s Ithaca College. Peter Eldridge, an aspiring jazz pianist who came late to singing; Kim Nazarian, who dreamed of a life on Broadway; and Darmon Meader, a saxophonist and self-described “choral geek,” came together in the school’s vocal jazz ensemble. Director Dave Reilly included all three of them, as well as Caprice Fox, in an ensemble he’d been invited to bring on a tour of European jazz festivals. They made the transition to New York City and in 1988 met Sara Krieger, who became the fifth member of the band. They have collaborated with institutions such as the Count Basie Orchestra, Paquito d’Rivera, and the Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band.

They have also launched a jazz education initiative for aspiring jazz singers. They will be conducting a two-day workshop with local area students which will culminate with a performance at the Opera House.

Tickets are $35/$40/$45 (Side/Center/Premium)

The Local Arts Fall Festival at Veterans Memorial Riverwalk, Watertown


-

The Watertown Downtown Business Association, with the Downtown Art Committee is bringing the annual Fall Festival back in 2022 to celebrate local arts in Watertown.
The Fall Festival was a tradition for over 20 years. During that time, the festival slowly declined in participation and attendance. In 2019, the DBA decided to postpone the festival until the fall of 2020 to reimagine and plan an improved festival. Then 2020 & 2021 happened.
Now, we are bringing it back in a big way as the Local Arts Fall Festival in the Veteran’s Memorial Riverwalk Park on Newell St in Downtown.
We plan to fill the park, from Mill St to Arch St, with vendors, food trucks, artists, classic cars, and other entertainments. There will be live artist demonstrations, live music, dance demonstrations, performance art, and we are even inviting actors to come down to perform.
And it all happens on October 8, 2022.
The festival will celebrate all the arts; visual, performing, music, food, and creative.
So, come to Downtown for a LAFF!
For Sponsorship information, vendor registration, or any other inquires, email the DBA at [email protected]
Proceeds benefit the Riverwalk Mural Gallery.

Clayton Community Band Concert – Clayton Opera House


-

Our band is made up of members that come from all over the North Country. Although many live in Clayton, Watertown or surrounding communities in Jefferson County, some of our musicians travel from St. Lawrence and Lewis Counties. We have a few members from even farther away who spend summers in the Clayton area and we welcome them back to play with us each summer season. We also come from many different walks of life. Some of our performers are life-long musicians either as performers or educators in local schools, some are professionals in other areas, and some have retired from their careers and are just looking for a fun and relaxing way to get involved in the community. Despite our differences we all come together each week to rehearse the music that we love sharing with our dedicated audiences. All members are listed in the programs for each of our concerts.

The philosophy of the Clayton Community Band is to afford any dedicated individual, who previously or currently plays a band instrument, an outlet to perform in rehearsal and public performance.

Preparation and presentation of concert band music is geared toward continuous education and enjoyment by the performers, while entertaining and educating the residents and guests of Clayton and surrounding communities through diversified programs of band literature. Working as a team to interpret and convey to an audience any select or particular selection of band music develops a serene sense of camaraderie. Great friendships are born through music, whether by working together as a team or by enjoying a live performance of musicians of various ages with diversified backgrounds performing for the love of music.

For the performers and audience, we feel that music heals the heart and soothes the soul.

Tickets are $8 & $6 (Balcony Center & everywhere else)

A word about the Weaving History Conference…
Under normal circumstances, the conference is held at the 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel overlooking the beautiful St. Lawrence River in the historic village of Clayton, NY- just blocks from the Thousand Islands Arts Center’s Handweaving Museum. The conference will be held virtually in 2021.

In order to celebrate, promote and share academic work on the subject of handweaving, the Historic Manuscripts Conference was founded in 1994. The name was changed to the Weaving History Conference (WHC) later to reflect the expansion of the subject of the conference to contain not just academic weaving presentations, but information on all fiber arts. Today the WHC is entering its impressive 26th consecutive year!
