Rolie Polie Guacamole at PPL

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

 

 

Direct from Brooklyn, NY, it’s Rolie Polie Guacamole! at PPL during

February vacation

 

 

Providence Public Library is pleased to present a free

performance by Frank Gallo and Andrew Tuzhilin – Rolie Polie Guacamole -

on Wednesday, February 18 from 3:00 to 4:00 PM at the Rochambeau Branch

Library (708 Hope Street).

 

Frank Gallo and Andrew Tuzhilin have been taking Rolie Polie Guacamole

to different music festivals and concerts on the East Coast and in the

NYC area. Last year they opened The Green Meadow Festival for Tom

Chapin. They play private schools, other festivals, as well as doing

regular programs for public libraries in New York and Rhode Island.

Frank and Andrew moved to Brooklyn and decided to write their first

children’s album. It resulted in 11 original songs. They bring a fresh

new sound to kids music (Acoustic Folk Funk). The songs are well

written and thoughtful, making it enjoyable for both kids and adults.

News from the RI FIlm Collaborative

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

From KAREN WEBB:

RIFC Member, Karen Webb, is producing a short holiday film “Is He Real or Not?” currently in production in Hopkinton, MA.  She is looking for an Adult Large Easter Bunny costume and an Adult S/M Leprechaun costume for scenes filming on January 17th. This is for a no/ultralow budget film so we’re preferably looking to borrow these vs. renting. If you can help us locate these, please contact me at webb.karen@verizon.net. Thanks in advance.

********************************************************************

From NEW FILM NATION:

INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL OF BOSTON FINAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE!!!New England’s premier film festival, the Independent Film Festival of
Boston, will take place April 22-28 at the Boston area’s most
historic arthouse cinemas, the Somerville Theatre, the Brattle
Theatre, and the Coolidge Corner Theatre, as well as at Boston’s
newest state-of-the-art theater at the Institute of Contemporary Art.
Over 90 films will be shown alongside of weekend panel discussions
and nightly parties. Other events unique to the festival that will
take place include the 4th annual filmmaker-only Candlepin Bowling
Challenge and the filmmaker-only on-field tour of Fenway Park. Relax
in what has been described by many as the “best filmmakers lounge on
the festival circuit”. Here’s what others have had to say about
IFFBoston:

“My first two trips to IFFBoston single-handedly justified my
decision to start making independent films. IFFBoston’s organizers
have a very special gift, because I haven’t talked with anyone who
hasn’t had a great time attending the festival, whether it be as
filmmaker, juror, audience member, or volunteer. If you make a film,
submit it to IFFBoston. And if you love movies, attend IFFBoston. You
won’t regret it.”
Michael Tully, COCAINE ANGEL and SILVER JEW

“IFFBoston has redefined the term ‘filmmaker friendly’ for every
producer, director, writer, editor, cinematographer, composer and
actor that has been lucky enough to experience the festival. The
audiences are passionate and intelligent, which is every filmmaker’s
dream.
Joe Swanberg, LOL and HANNAH TAKES THE STAIRS

“In only its third year, the Independent Film Festival of Boston has
become the major game in town: a smartly programmed and risk-taking
festival that balances ‘big’ indie films with the best in local
filmmaking.”
Ty Burr, BOSTON GLOBE (2005)

“In just its fourth year of existence the Independent Film Festival
of Boston has become the premier such event in this area”
Peter Keough, BOSTON PHOENIX (2006)

“The annual Independent Film Festival of Boston has accomplished more
in its five-year history than some festivals do with twice as much
time and resources.”
Matt Dentler, INDIEWIRE (2007)

The final deadline for submissions is December 31st. IFFBoston is
looking for films of all shapes and sizes. You can submit your film
by clicking https://www.withoutabox.com/login/4048
and do more
research on IFFBoston by perusing the festival website at http://
www.iffboston.org

2009 Newport Annual

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

 The 2009 Newport Annual returns in February to the Newport Art Museum and officials there will be accepting entries on January 22nd and 23rd.  The much-anticipated show draws hundreds of entries from regional artists in a multitude of media including painting, watercolor, prints/drawings/pastels, three-dimensional, photography/video and mixed media. Prize winners in several categories will be announced Friday, February 6 at the Members’ Preview Reception hosted by the Museum at 76 Bellevue Avenue, 5 – 7 p.m. The reception is sponsored in part by Newport Vineyards, Clements Market and Gary Savage. The Newport Annual opens on February 7 and runs through May 25, 2009.
The Museum ensures an interesting and high quality Newport Annual by inviting independent experts from the world of art to determine which works will make it into the show. This year, Nick Capasso, Senior Curator at the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park in Lincoln, Massachusetts will serve as juror. Capasso has organized or co-organized over 60 exhibitions at the DeCordova and has worked extensively with contemporary art, outdoor sculpture, and public art as an art historian, guest curator, critic, lecturer, private consultant, and design selection panelist. He has also written on aspects of contemporary art and public art for Sculpture magazine, Public Art Review, Arts Magazine, Art New England, and ArtsMedia, and is a Trustee of the UrbanArts Institute at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
First prizes awarded by Capasso will come with a cash award. In a departure from past tradition, the Museum’s curator, Nancy Whipple Grinnell, will award The Newport Art Museum Award: a future solo show for the winning artist.
Artists may submit one ready-to-hang or ready-to–install work, which must have been completed over the last year but not exhibited previously at the Newport Art Museum. All entrants must be current members of the Museum though membership dues will be accepted at the time work is delivered.

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

DRAWING THE ENVIRONMENT, a program developed by Elaine Smollin at the

BLACKSTONE RIVER AND CANAL in Quinnvill/Ashton and on the Hudson River

will be offered in BRISTOL at COGGESHALL FARM beginning this New Year.

The idea is to place the studio classroom directly in the natural world.

Drawing methods from art and archaeology are offered in two-hour sessions for

private classes and small groups.

2009 is the 100 year anniversay of Rhode Island’s State Parks.

DRAWING THE ENVIRONMENT was created to encourage our interests in

nature and society and in doing so, to create venues for higher arts

education in our preserved landscapes. A portion of proceeds benefit

landscape preservation.

SPECIAL WORKSHOPS held for 14 days surrounding MEMORIAL DAY, FOURTH OF

JULY AND LABOR DAY at COGGESHALL will benefit the COGGESHALL FARM

MUSEUM.

DRAWING THE ENVIRONMENT is now offered as a master class in art,

society and environment in partnership with schools and museums.

It would be lovely to see you at Coggeshall this year.

Drawing the Environment RI will be offered as two-hour sessions from

sunrise to sunset.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
