Rhode Island Independent Performers Network

Friday, November 30th, 2007

Rhode Island Independent Performers Network (RI2PN), through Dance Alliance of Rhode Island, is a grassroots organization of local and regional performing artists who are dedicated to creating new and innovative works for local audiences and developing long range strategies for sustaining life in the arts in Rhode Island. RI2PN currently serves artists in the disciplines of dance, theatre, music, text, performance art and film/video. RI2PN is committed to producing multiple local concerts annually involving traditional, contemporary and experimental forms of performance and has produced over 30 different performing artists in the past 3 years crossing multiple generations, over 14 different disciplines, highlighting independent artists that have performed nationally and internationally. Through the juxtaposition of various artists, this organization provides a unique experience and atmosphere to both the artists and the audiences who participate in these performances. Currently, RI2PN strives to hold a minimum of three presentations of independent performing artists annually: two concert-style productions in professional RI theatres, and Frazier Festival, a free outdoor event at RISD. Performers are offered a modest stipend when presented in a concert setting. Our upcoming presentation, Cheek 2 Cheek: Unexpected Duets, will run Valentines weekend, February 14-17, 2007 at Perishable Theatre, downtown Providence. Won’t you join us in presenting a performance for two? We are looking forward to receiving your completed application (attached) by December 15!

Memory House at Trinity Rep

Friday, November 30th, 2007

http://www.arts.ri.gov/images/THUMB_Katia_Maggie_floor.jpgMemory House by Kathleen Tolandirected by Curt Columbus

Dowling Theater, TRINITY REP

November 30 – January 6, 2008

 

The essay question, “What’s in your memory house?” sparks the play. This innocuous question for a college entrance essay prompts a free-spirited 18-year-old to question everything – especially her adoption from Russia.

Unfolding in real time, as one woman struggles to bake a pie while another races to meet a looming deadline, The New York Times calls Tolan’s play “A captivating emotional ballet that is also a moving demonstration of the strenuous work that goes into good mothering.” Tickets are on sale now at the Trinity Rep box office, 201 Washington Street; by phone at (401) 351-4242; and online at www.trinityrep.com.

Hera Gallery Presents Artisan Craft SaleSaturday December 15th, 2007

10:00am – 4:00pm

 

Hera Gallery is please to announce the upcoming Artisan Craft Sale featuring the work of local artists. Reviving an old tradition, Hera Gallery will again be hosting this artisan sale to support the creativity of local artists, as well as to introduce the community to original, one-of-a-kind-works.

Participating in this event will be John Baylor, who creates domestically centered ceramic pieces, which emphasizes functionality. Baylor’s minimalist forms pair muted earth tones with simple decorative surfaces and textures. Ruth Ann Howden works primarily in paper, creating sculptures that are functional books. Howden’s work unfolds, and unlocks in the users hand; revealing the hours that goes into each treasure.

Also participating is Devienna Anggraini, a recent graduate from RISD’s MFA Jewelry and Metalsmithing department. Anggraini creates sterling silver jewelry that incorporates playful colors and compositional elements together. This jewelry interacts with the body in an unexpected manner, and is simple in form.  Besides these artists, for sale will be ceramic works, beaded and sterling silver jewelry, handmade journals, screen-printed textiles, handmade bags, and more. Please mark your calendar, and join Hera Gallery in supporting our local craft community.

These programs are presented with partial support from The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, Hera Educational Foundation, and The Friends of Hera. Hera Gallery is free and open to the public and is accessible to persons with disabilities. Parking is available.

Gallery Opening: Shannon Casey and Margarita Viera

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

http://www.artists-exchange.org/ArtistsExchange/Images/AE-Banner800x78.gif 

Please  join us for an evening to celebrate up and coming artists Shannon Casey and Margarita Viera

The Artists’ Exchange, 50 Rolfe Street, Cranston, RI 02910  401.490.9475

Sunday, December 2, 4:00PM

Shannon Casey of Foster, RI will share a collection of oil paintings which emerged from her exploration of the relationship between music and art, inspired by her undergraduate research on synesthesia, a neurological disorder in which a person involuntarily experiences a certain sensory response as an effect of another, i.e. seeing music or hearing pictures. Casey’s fascination with the phenomenon led her to investigate it further, using painting as a vehicle of exploration.

Margarita Viera, a newcomer to the outsider art world, will showcase a selection of paintings and jewelry from her growing portfolio. Viera has been studying painting and jewelry design at The Artists’ Exchange since 2004, and is thrilled to have her first opening.

We hope you can join us for an evening celebrating art and self-expression

Cornerstone Theatre Company seeks Managing Director

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

     The Arts Consulting Group seeks your interest or candidate recommendations to fill the Managing Director position at the Cornerstone Theater Company located in Los Angeles, California.     
  
ORGANIZATION
Cornerstone Theater Company was founded in 1986 by Alison Carey and Bill Rauch. It is a multi-ethnic, ensemble-based theater company that commissions and produces new plays of both original works and contemporary adaptations of classics, which combine the artistry of professionals and community collaborators.  By making theater with and for people of many ages, cultures and levels of theatrical experience, Cornerstone builds bridges between and within diverse communities in its home city of Los Angeles and nationwide.  It has achieved critical acclaim for both its inclusive approach to theater making and the quality of its artistic work, including numerous awards and recognition for its achievements.  Many of the country’s most significant regional theaters have sought to partner with Cornerstone in the creation of commissioned collaborations. 
       
The original Ensemble initially lived and worked in primarily rural communities, creating 12 epic musical productions in 10 states. The company helped define “community based theater” with innovative collaborations, producing work that engaged the collective talent of professionals and community artists.  In 1991, the first Bridge Show brought together over 50 community-based artists who toured 10,000 miles to each other’s hometowns. In 1992, Cornerstone settled in Los Angeles.  During its 20 plus years, the Ensemble has commissioned nearly 50 playwrights and produced over 60 new works of American adaptations of classics and original plays.
