Telling – Maxine Lennon

October 30th 2015, 8-9 pm

Originally from Ireland, Maxine Lennon tells tales from ancient pre-Celtic myths to her own contemporary imaginative stories. She’s told in back yards, tea rooms, public bars, spiritual spaces, homes, forests and corporate offices.

Samhain is the Celtic New Year. The time when the veil between this world and the world of the Others is at its thinnest. Step across this threshold in the company of Irish Storyteller Maxine Lennon. Maxine will weave ancient Celtic tales at studio e on Friday 30th October 8pm – 9pm. Samhain celebrates the darkness. In the winter months when the food has been harvested, when traveling is treacherous, when the dark creatures are on the prowl, it is best to stay close to home fires. In the darkness we create art, produce crafts, replenish weapons and celebrate with festivals in preparation for Spring.

Art History Lecture Series with Elena Deem

September 27th 2015 5:30 pm – Women of the Avant-Garde

please sign up to receive e-mail announcements about upcoming lectures from the series by art historian Elena Deem, PhD

Historical Avant-Garde:

Boundaries and Spaces

Revolutionary avant-garde movements swept through Europe in the first three decades of the twentieth century. Their unprecedented experimentation with art, literature and new media, and their programs that welded novel aesthetics with social progress breached the traditional boundaries between word and image, popular and “high” culture, and art and politics. We will examine the innovative practices that underpin avant-garde art, collages, artist books, and poem-pictures as produced by several movements: Italian, Russian, British, Spanish, and Czech. Our more general focus will be on the beginnings of multimedia and abstraction in art, and on the connections that the avant-garde typically made between art, the public, and social engagement.

IMG_1610Elena Deem received her PhD in Comparative Literature and Art History from the University of Washington. She is a freelance curator, art historian, lecturer and teacher. In her work, she focuses on contemporary art, and the art and poetry of historical European avant-garde. Dr. Deem has taught literature, art, and English at several Seattle universities. In addition, she is Director of Education of the NGO, Amazon Promise, supervising HIV-prevention and women’s rights programs in the Peruvian Amazon.
