J-Lynn, Kat Kidwell and Brad Herwy in concert

Today, 8:00 PM

Come for the inspiration of three spirits, playing both toghter and solo, whose band began last year for one bar gig down the street. Leave with new thoughts about your world. J-Lynn, with these two as backup, often draws in the crowd at Elbo Room for pop-punk anthems of strength, heartache, queerness and justice. Brad Herwy of string band The Devils Let Us absorbs the haunting tones of the forest and releases these through drumming, cello and mandolin. Kat Kidwell, booted from a major musicians’ society at 17, turned to create extradimensional psychedelic folk-punk band The Raging Clovers to spread stories of magic, self-discovery, sexual anarchy, and the secrets of dragons and wolves. Bring an art project to work on, if you’d like, and let the songs, angst and reflections wrap their roots around your soul.

Suggested admission: $15

Painting The Wheel of the Year: Wheel Template 3 & 4 with Colleen Koziara

Tomorrow, 2:00 PM » 7:00 PM

NOTE: This is a double session, covering the material in sessions 3 and 4, so class will be 2 - 7 PM

The Wheel of the Year. Time, not linear but circular. Round and round we go, and have always gone. Since the beginning of time, humans, of every faith and culture, have found time best tracked in circles. Humans have created stone circles aligned with the seasons for at least 200,000 years. Everything in life falls comfortably somewhere upon the spokes of the wheel of time. The times of day, the seasons, the astrological calendar, the trees and symbols of the Ogham, Alchemy, Festivals, ages of human life, the colors, musical notes, emotions, tides. All of time, all of creation.

This is what we will explore in this year-long series of painting classes held once a month.  Eight of our sessions will focus on the seasonal festival: Imbolc, Ostara, Beltaine, Summer Solstice, Lughnassadh, Mabon, Samhain and Yule. For these sessions, we will create acrylic on canvas paintings.

Four of our sessions will focus on the Wheel of the Year Template as a whole. In these sessions, each participant will use ink pens, markers, paint, and/or collage on acetate sheets to create a multi-layered depiction of a personalized Wheel meaningful to their own life path.

Our theme for November 17: Wheel Template 3 & 4 
Session 3 & 4 of 4 on the Template of the Wheel. Here we will continue our creation of a multilayered clear acetate diagram that symbolizes exactly what layers and correspondences we personally feel are best included in our personal representation of the passing of a year in our own life. We will review and consider the wheels created from cultures and traditions around the world and across all the ages of time, and then we will design and create our own personal Wheel of the Year.

All materials will be supplied and no previous experience is necessary.  The class will begin with a smudging and guided meditation, and continue on with the painting session. Each session will include a central space arrangement of items that speak to the season and the spoke upon the wheel that is our focus for that session.

Additionally, each student will be provided with a computer file, and a link to a YouTube Playlist that features a wide variety of supportive documentation on The Wheel as it appears in its many varied forms and focuses: images of Circles, Mandalas and Wheels of the Year from a wide variety of cultures and locations as well as stories and legends from around the world to be used as reference material for their study.

Pre-registration is required due to material and supply orders that must be placed.

NOTE: This is a double session, covering the material in sessions 3 and 4, so class will be 2 - 7 PM
