Our planet’s climate has gone roller-coaster see-saw wild! We’ve had the warmest, driest winter, while others roll in snow or freeze. Melt burn quake, we never know the headlines ahead of time, at least there’s no tsunami in Miami. Since 1988 the Earth Poets & Musicians have used wisdom, vision, irony, rhythm, music, and even humor to remind audiences that Earth’s a wondrous place, and we want to keep it that way. On April 14th at the Urban Ecology Center and on April 21st at the Coffee House, they will remind us once again, for the 25th consecutive year!

The weeping willow dances in the breeze, and so do I.
But the willow has a different choreographer, though sometimes I give it a try,
try to choreograph the trees with my brush or pen,
and they dance according to my whim.
And sometimes the trees choreograph me,
not from just their outside appearance, from their in.
For when I paint on wood, I let the grain below
tell my brush where to go.

Holiday Party and Unhanging

Don’t be unhinged by Unhanging. We’re just celebrating the holiday season with a party and giving everyone another reason to see, or re-see, the exhibit of recent work by Eli Rosenblatt, Jennifer Espenscheid, and John McWilliams before it’s unhung at the end of the month. Eli’s webpage has photographs of many of his paintings, though not the work in the show.

There is also an event JAM FOR LIFE in Verduras-Tea Cafe on the first floor of the Artasia/Rosenblatt Gallery/Cuvee/Verduras building. So come and party on all three floors!!

Friday, Dec 9, 5:30 pm until 10:00 pm
Rosenblatt Gallery & Artasia Gallery and Museum
181 N Broadway, Milwaukee, WI

Earth Day Earth Poets and Photoscapes

Crumple the calendar, toss it into recycle, it no longer suffices.
Earth Day, Poetry Month, Gallery Night.
Emails, iPhones. iPads, iPods.
Texts, tweets.
Forest fires, oil spills, mine collapses.
Quakes, tsunamis, tornados.
Rallies, revolutions.
A moment of silence for the dead, a century of noise for the living.
Everyone on the move.

What’s the next event?

For me it’s the OPENING RECEPTION for PHOTOSCAPES, (PHOTO-ESCAPES?) featuring Mark Baran, Steven Crossot, Art Elkon, Keith Knox, & me, at ROSENBLATT GALLERY, 181 N. Broadway, Friday, APRIL 15, 6:30-10 PM. I travelled the world with a brownie for years, have since upgraded, and last October found myself snapping up the unexpected beauty of autumn in Harriman State Park (NY).

That’s why I’m in a photography show for the first time. What’s the next event?

For me it’s the 24th ANNUAL EARTH POETS & MUSICIANS PERFORMANCES on April 16 and 22. 24th annual, two performances every April, and I’ve never missed one.

In our artwork we look at ourselves, laugh at ourselves, consciously or unconsciously paint ourselves. Or we gaze into others’ eyes and try to turn our paint into their emotions. We may lose the human figure in its surroundings, or let it overpower the space. Or perhaps we abstract it so much no one else knows it’s human. There are as many ways to look at humanity as there are people looking. And the latest show at the Rosenblatt Gallery features four very different artists, Davey Noble, Eriks Johnson, Virgi Driscoll, and Nancy Lamers, painting their fellow earthlings.

Jan 21, 2011 to Mar 4, 2011
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, Jan 21, 6:30-10:30 PM
Virgi Driscoll, Eriks Johnson, Nancy Lamers, and Davey Noble
Rosenblatt Gallery, 181 North Broadway, Milwaukee, 414-220-4292

This is just to test that the update to WP 3.1 and plugins worked. Did the Manual Update as described in the WordPress Codex. In the past, doing updates through the WordPress Dashboard caused problems on Earthlink Hosting.
