Victoria Caputo reads 'Trust Me' @ Mamaroneck Public Library | Waterloo | Iowa | United States

When Victoria got to seventh grade, things took a turn for the worse. Bullying, gossiping, and the overall hostility of Viki’s classmates led to bouts of depression, eating disorders, body dysmorphia, and the constant emotions of loneliness and emptiness. The combination of these mental illnesses and emotions led to an eventual suicide attempt on January 14th, 2013. After recovering from her injuries, Viki has since made it her mission to help those around her who are in similar situations. From an insider’s seat, Victoria tells an insightful and powerful story that rings with pain, hope and courage.

Opening Reception for Strange Legacy – new paintings by Janna Watson @ Kenise Barnes Fine Art
Mar 1 @ 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
Opening Reception for Strange Legacy - new paintings by Janna Watson @ Kenise Barnes Fine Art |  |  |

Kenise Barnes Fine Art is pleased to present Canadian artist Janna Watson and her first solo show with the gallery.

Janna Watson is a young artist who has quickly made an impression on the contemporary art scene. Her abstract compositions and energetic brushstrokes possess an elegant and powerful vitality. A masterful colorist, Watson juxtaposes analogous colors against “difficult” and disharmonious hues resulting in a taut and carefully balanced abstract works. She creates energetic, often precarious tension with her deliberate and confident marks and the spontaneous drips and gestures that are artifacts of her intuitive process. Watson paints on birch panel, often letting the wood grain become an another active element in her composition.

The notion of spiritual alignment is central to Janna Watson’s practice and shapes the artist’s formal concerns with light, color, and space in her paintings. “Qì” is converted through color choices and unified with Watson’s gesture.

This exhibition Strange Legacy is a homage to Arthur Bonnet. Bonnet was Janna Watson’s grandfather, mentor and muse. His teachings are ever-present in Watson’s studio practice, the faint echo of his urging to “make it wilder’ continues to guide her hand and heart.

Watson’s paintings can be found in several significant collections, including in the Toronto collections of TD Bank Financial Group, CIBC, the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and the HBC Global Art Collection in New York. In 2017, she was selected to create a mural-size painting for the feature space in AURA, North America’s largest condominium building. Watson earned a BFA in Drawing and Painting from Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto, ON. The artist lives and works in Toronto, Canada.

A digital exhibition catalogue is available, and a link can be found on our website, www.KBFA.com.

Jams at Jay - Margaret McDuffie & Co. @ Jay Heritage Center |  |  |

Chase away the midwinter blues with music at our 1907 Carriage House. Join us for “Jams at Jay” in 2019! Informal listening every First Friday – casual attire encouraged. The acoustics are incredible and so are the artists! Help us welcome Margaret McDuffie and Co. for our second “Jams at Jay” on March 1 from 7:00 – 9:30pm. Joining Margaret will be Steve Raleigh on guitar, Art Labriola on keys, and T. Xiques on drums. All are exceptional – Labriola is a winner of a Grammy, an Emmy, and a Clio. Buy tickets now https://conta.cc/2FEWZ5n

McDuffie can make you stare straight down the barrel of a tough current truth one minute, and the next have you thinking about how much pure, complex, welcome power lies in a simple love song.

The influences run deep, and though almost no music isn’t an influence, there are some key voices that lie under this sound: The Temptations, Elvis Presley, Neil Young, Odetta and Joni Mitchell. The arrangements have an old-fashioned feel though the message is insistently current, and the musicianship is always solid – at times downright sublime.While she writes jazz songs in both old and new styles, the jazz sensibility has added a whole new field of color across the her folksy blues and added a complexity and richness to the music that you don’t often hear.

JHC Members $20, General Admission $25. First set at 7:15pm; Second set at 8:45pm.

Sign up in advance for all 3 evenings of music! JHC Member $50, General Admission $65

As Purchase College’s 2018-19 Roy and Shirley Durst Distinguished Chair in Literature, Mr. Young is featured in a series of events at the college.

A figure of notable stature in the literary world, Kevin Young is the poetry editor at The New Yorker and the Director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. He has published 10 books of poetry and two award-winning non-fiction books. His prestigious honors include being named a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, as well as winner of the Graywolf Nonfiction Prize and the PEN Open Book Award. He was also longlisted for the National Book Award and received a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship.

“This is an extremely exciting time for Purchase,” said Mariel Rodney, assistant professor of literature at Purchase College. “Kevin Young is a cultural tour de force. His poems and prose reveal the complexity of an evolving American experience borne through decades of sound and color. We are, in a word, captivated.”

The Durst Distinguished Lecture Series and the Roy and Shirley Durst Distinguished Chair in Literature are funded by the Roy and Shirley Durst Distinguished Chair in Literature Endowment. The mission of the Durst programs is to infuse the experience and intellect of leading writers into the Purchase community, while providing diverse opportunities for these writers to interact with students and influence campus life.

As a small public college, Purchase is proud to introduce students to the level of expertise provided by the Durst Distinguished Lectures, which provide outstanding opportunities for students and local community members to interact with accomplished authors.
