Full Bore Mystic, Meditative Collage, and Sacred Tremors

For the month of June 2015, creative duo Full Bore Mystic will be Nonesuch Artists in Residence in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia. Poet and visual artist Julia Heimer Dadds & painter Mark Beebe will be coming to us from Bloomington, Indiana where Julia teaches and Mark, now retired after some 25 years guarding museum treasures, is devoting himself full-time to his painting and his family.

"Sacred Tremors" Indiana Version, May 2015, Mark Beebe

 

You can meet Mark and Julia at their Artists’ Talk on Friday June 12th at 10:30 am in the Nonesuch Café.

Julia will also be giving two Nonesuch Coffee Talks on Tuesday, June 23rd, Lao Tzu at the Gate, and on Tuesday, June 30th, Talismans of the everyday.

On June 20th and 21st, Julia will be offering a Meditative Collage Workshop (or all mixed up and that’s just fine). For details and to register, see here… http://hmsnonesuch.com/workshops-seminars-conferences/learn/all-mixed-up/

Be sure to look for both Mark & Julia at our Tuesday Poetry Nights throughout the month of June and note that Julia will be our featured poet on Tuesday, June 23rd so come on down for that and also keep an eye out for Mark in and around town as you may just find him somewhere painting up a storm.

And finally, definitely don’t miss the exhibit of their work opening June 25th at 5 pm.

To give you a taste of her poetry, here is a sample Julia tells me is ‘a tad rough’. It is from a series Julia is working on around Jane Schoolcraft’s story (and her family’s). Her Ojibwe name  was Obabaamwewe-giizhigokwe (in modern spelling) Continue reading

All art speaks directly to our emotions. As a visual artist I employ the formal elements of line, colour, mass, composition, visual rhythm, etc. to communicate feeling in painting, sculpture or other visual media. The work is informed by every experience in my life. For me, working in the studio is not removed from life but an extension of it, it is a stew of memories, desires and a place where I can process the hurly-burly of contemporary experience and create a therapeutic haven producing work that fills a need for contemplation.

Jane Zdansky, B.Sc., B.F.A., has been painting since she was a child and has been exhibiting work since 1999. Her work can be viewed at www.janezdansky.com.

When: September 7th – 28th on Fridays and Saturdays from 11-5pm or by chance or appointment

Preview Showing: Saturday, August 31st from 2-5pm

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 7th from 2-5pm

A collection of dresses recovered from the attic of an old store in Advocate Harbour is the subject of a series of works on paper by Catherine MacLean. The circa 1950 dresses had been owned by the storekeeper and purveyor of all good things, Maurita Murphy. The were discovered by MacLean in 2006 when she moved her studio into the building which had been vacant for almost a decade.

This work was originally exhibited under the title ‘the dress rehearsal’ on February 14th, 2010 at The Old Murphy Store in Advocate, NS and again at the Craig Gallery at Alderney Landing in Dartmouth NS during March of that year. The current installation of these drawings, retitled ‘Redress’, celebrates the exciting new art space, Main & Station, which has revived Parrsboro’s landmark post office building..

Catherine MacLean is an artist and teacher who divides her time between Advocate Harbour and Halifax, Nova Scotia

My work is a response to reality rather than an imitative picture of reality. Whether my inspiration is a forest, a person or a vase of flowers, my approach is always to create a portrait of my subject that evokes an emotional tone through aesthetic mean.
