New ‘Wild About Trees’ Exhibit Celebrates Trees in Art

pyrophyte-2_by_Cheryl-Richey

‘Pyrophyte 2’ by Cheryl A. Richey

Although artists Donna Leavitt, Cheryl A. Richey, and Elizabeth Reed Smith‘s art reflect diverse styles and media, these Northwest artists share a deep affinity for trees and an interest in exploring and understanding their unifying symbolism. Trees have long been associated with a sense of mystery, magic, strength, and wisdom. Over time and throughout history, tree imagery has been featured in myths, parables, dream theories, and art.

For example, trees are often depicted as nature’s gladiators whose strength enables them to continue to struggle and survive despite great odds and dire circumstances. In many cultures, trees are revered as totems of unseen forces or potent symbols of such qualities as longevity, fertility, wisdom, and immortality.

Wild About Trees” stimulates contemplation of both the artistic merits of trees and the universal power of tree symbolism to advance understanding and appreciation of trees in an ecologically-balanced world, and the sweeping interconnectedness between people and the environment.

‘Wild About Trees’

When: August 2, 2015 – October 4, 2015
Where: The Gallery at Grace Episcopal Church (8595 Day Road East)
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Friday, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm; Sunday, 8:00 am – 11:00 am (and by appointment)

Closing Reception and Artists’ Talk: Sunday, September 27, 10:45 am – 12:00 pm. The artists will donate a percentage of art sales to Bainbridge Island Land Trust (BILT).

We hadn’t made a full album together since 1985, but as you get older, you realize you’re not immortal and you’ve only got so much time.” Dave and Phil Alvin may have set out to honor the legacy of Big Bill Broonzy with this record, but in the process, they solidified their own as one of roots music’s most exceptional duos. Admission: $26/$38

In a story that resonates on Bainbridge Island, Reeves, a former chief correspondent for PBS’s Frontline who was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Society of Newspaper Columnists, interviewed survivors and plumbs letters, memoirs, and the relevant archives to document the internment of more than 120,000 Japanese Americans and Japanese aliens residing in the United States during World War II. In addition, he clarifies the xenophobia and vengefulness of people at that time, which touched even highly regarded individuals like Earl Warren, Edward R. Murrow, and FDR himself, while also showing that some people were opposed. Expect a moving community conversation. Admission: Free

Course Correction with Ginny Gilder
3:00 – 4:00 pm @ Eagle Harbor Book Co. (157 Winslow Way East)
Olympic medalist Ginny Gilder, whose book, Course Correction, tells the heartfelt and candid story of a young woman’s journey to become an elite athlete in the wake of Title IX. Having grown up in an era when girls were only beginning to abandon the sidelines as observers and cheerleaders to become national champions, Gilder harbored no dreams of athletic stardom. But when Gilder went to Yale in 1975, she found herself in a new world, training with Olympic rowers and participating in the famous Title IX naked protest, which helped define the movement for equality in college sports. Course Correction recounts the physical and psychological barriers Gilder overcame as she transformed into an elite athlete who reached the highest echelon of her sport. Admission: Free

Treehouse Café Bainbridge Island LogoOpen Mic Science
8:00 pm @ Treehouse Café (4569 Lynwood Center Road NE)
Dr. Shallin Busch will give a talk titled “Ocean Acidification in Washington State: an exploration of its chemical, biological and societal impacts.” Ocean acidification, a consequence of carbon dioxide emissions, potentially has a large impact on ocean ecosystems. Ocean acidification is caused by well understood chemical processes, though its progression in coastal estuaries is complicated by a variety of human activities. However, the biological, societal, and economic implications of ocean acidification are poorly understood but could be large, especially in some regions like the Pacific Northwest. The region’s oyster industry has likely already experienced its negative effects. This presentation will explain ocean acidification, explore its ecological implications for Washington and the Pacific Northwest, and discuss the Panel’s recommendations. Admission: Free

The Drowsy Chaperone at Bainbridge Performing Arts

The Drowsy Chaperone at Bainbridge Performing Arts

The Drowsy Chaperone at Bainbridge Performing Arts
7:30 pm @ Bainbridge Performing Arts (200 Madison Avenue North)
Winner of 5 TONY Awards (including Best Book and Best Original Score), The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz-age musical featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another. With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and the show begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight! Admission: Pay what you can
