This exhibition is part of an in-process body of work focused on the Kleingarten of Berlin, city gardens or "colonies", originally designed as a calming, natural haven for the city's youth and working classes amidst the rapidly growing urban landscape. Flood is inspired by the tranquil isolation that makes the garden "another realm, full of fantastical plants, statues and the sounds of only wind and birds" apart from the bustle of the surrounding city.

Pat Conant's new series is a remarkable departure from the tranquil watercolor landscapes she has exhibited in the past. Though New England remains her central subject matter, Conant's hand printed and limited edition prints relay a complex union of regional history and current life. Influenced by the artwork of George Lockwood and the writings of Eudora Welty, Conant layers images of stately Victorian homes and antique portraits of multigenerational families.

As time progressed I took pictures to document my hikes and adventures in areas such as Alaska, New Zealand, Ireland, and New England. As with my late sculptor father and his work I take much of my inspiration from nature. I find there is beauty in the grandest of mountains to the smallest grains of sand. I hope you enjoy my photos as much as I have enjoyed taking them."

About the collection: Space-age optimism. Backyard bliss. Wide smiles from coast to coast. Mid-century advertisers whet the American appetite for a leisure lifestyle, class climbing ambitions - and freedom. They knew that selling the dream required Technicolor campaigns. My latest work is influenced by the cool, confident color schemes from my '50s and '60s magazine stash. This is my first "abstract" collection: no characters, no commentary, no story.

Visionary artist, Max D. Standley, was born in Wichita, Kansas in 1942. He was an artist to the core of his being: for almost 40 years his prodigious talent allowed him to live and breathe art. He lived reclusively with his wife on a secluded 40 acres, deep in the forests of Arkansas. This lifestyle gave him the freedom to immerse himself in his oil painting, engraving, poetry and drawing -- the result was intimate paintings that vibrate with his intensity.

"Don't try to make a good painting out of a bad picture," was the advice one of my mentors gave me since I began drawing and painting almost 20 years ago. As I travel around the Connecticut River Valley, camera in hand, I look for good pictures. I also find my subjects in everyday things - cheese and wine, a puddle, and cups and spoons. Good pictures can be found everywhere. Subjects can range from landscapes to items on a tabletop. I look for color, light and composition.

"Don't try to make a good painting out of a bad picture," was the advice one of my mentors gave me since I began drawing and painting almost 20 years ago. As I travel around the Connecticut River Valley, camera in hand, I look for good pictures. I also find my subjects in everyday things - cheese and wine, a puddle, and cups and spoons. Good pictures can be found everywhere. Subjects can range from landscapes to items on a tabletop. I look for color, light and composition.

Cheesecloth Nuno Felt wrap with Nancy Dorian

Fee: $95 plus materials (approx. $25 - $35)
Class Location: New England Felting Supply

City/Town: Easthampton
Website: www.feltingsupply.com

Beginner-friendly class. Using nuno felting techniques and cheesecloth, create lovely lacey wraps and scarves to wear year-round. During the felting process, wool fibers migrate through the loose weave cheesecloth and entangle. The wool eventually shrinks, pulling the cheesecloth along with it, which results in an incredibly lightweight garment that drapes the body beautifully. In this one-day workshop we will cover design, layout, felting, fulling and finishing to create your own art-to-wear.
