Lay of the Land: Paintings by Julia Jensen at Next Stage

From May 25 to August 22 May 26, Next Stage Arts Gallery is showing works by Artist Julia Jensen in a show titled "Lay of the Land."

Artist Statement: Julia Jensen

I have been painting landscapes for years drawing on my experiences living in Vermont and Nantucket. Landscape gives me a foothold on the path to an interior experience of art. At root all painting is about expression of direct experience. Paintings exist at the meeting ground between the external world and one’s internal, emotional, and spiritual responses to it. For me, landscape is the perfect point of access for this exploration.

Field Trip

The scene is the Civil Rights Museum, Memphis, Tennessee. For those unaware, in addition to its nickname as the birthplace of rock and roll, and being the largest city on the Mississippi River, Memphis is named after another Delta city, the ancient capital of lower Egypt, a mighty dynasty long since vanished into oblivion. Most notably, Memphis is where Martin Luther King was shot. That exact spot being the setting for this encounter. 

King was killed on the balcony of Room 306 in the Lorraine Motel, and as you can see from pictures, something is frozen in time there.  Strikingly, the Civil Rights Museum is built into the Lorraine Motel. Its galleries mushroomed from the original motel, now one of the more intense curatorial excursions you can take in this country concerning the plight of African Americans.

Author Reading: Horse-Drawn Yogurt: Stories from Total Loss Farm

We hope you will join us as Peter Gould presents his new book, Horse-Drawn Yogurt: Stories from Total Loss Farm, here at Brooks Memorial Library, on Wednesday, June 14, at 7:00, downstairs in the Main Reading Room.

Gould was a founding member of the 1970's "Back-to-the-Land" commune movement in Vermont, a story he has told in various ways in his two nationally-known novels, "Burnt Toast" and "Write Naked," which won the 2009 National Green Earth Book Award.

Horse-Drawn Yogurt, from Green Writers Press, is his first published non-fiction book. It's a collection of true-life stories of a young man’s life on a Vermont farm commune at the height of the movement.

They’re Coming To Take You Away, Ha, Ha.

Warning! Reader Discretion. Graphic Fascist thoughts and feelings may be realized. All of you internet denizens of free speech and antiestablishment, if you don't want "to be scooped up," beware! Pay particular attention to the italics in the last paragraph

Words like fascist and authoritarian get thrown around too promiscuously. But there is no other way to describe David Clarke, who today announced that he was named assistant secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.The Department has not confirmed Clarke’s appointment.) Clarke occupies the extremist, anti-democratic fringe of far-right officials, even by the standards of the Trump administration.

Clarke, a Milwaukee sheriff, rocketed into national prominence as a conservative provocateur by virtue of his rabid opposition to Black Lives Matter.
