Holiday Class at Midway Community Kitchen

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

6:30pm  - 8:00pm

If your Holiday table is in a rut and you want to inject some life, let Toriano Fredericks, cook and co-owner of Boricua Soul Food truck show you a few plates from a Southern Latino Table to spice up you Holiday. Owners Toriano and Serena Fredericks formed Boricua Soul Food Truck after mixing and experimenting with foods and techniques from their grandmother’s kitchen’s. The blending of Puerto Rican and Soul Food led to many thoughts, discussions and learning about two different cuisines with similar roots. Both cuisines are the by-product of mixing of West African, Native Indian and European ingredients and techniques as a result of the African slave trade. Boricua Soul’s menu is the blending of the two cultures. To register visit www.midwaycommunitykitchen.com

St. Nick Collection Kick-Off

Friday, December 9 | 6-9 pm

Art is medicine for the soul. Paint, brushes, crayons, paper can’t cure cancer, but they do help people transcend suffering and worry. That’s why the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and FRANK Gallery collaborate to provide art supplies to patients and their caregivers in the N.C. Cancer Hospital. The program is called the Oncology Expressive Arts Program and they need your help!

The Oncology Expressive Arts Program at the N.C. Cancer Hospital is one of FRANK Gallery’s many community-outreach programs. Every holiday season, the FRANK artists and our caring community members gather a small mountain of art supplies at the gallery to help spread cheer through the arts, and allow this incredible program to begin their year off with a freshly stocked supply of materials.

FRANK Gallery will be collecting items beginning December 1, with their annual celebration of this wonderful program and it's staff taking place as part of the 2nd Friday Artwalk on Friday, December 9th. All "Artwalkers" are encouraged, but not required, to bring an item to donate to the bin. For the full list of suggested supplies, visit www.frankisart.com

Musical Conversation Evening & Art Exhibit at LIGHT Art+Design

  • LIGHT Art+Design

AN EVENING OF MUSICAL CONVERSATIONS WITH
ALISON WEINER AND FRIENDS

LIGHT ART + DESIGN is pleased to present Alison Weiner of mahaloArts, joined by musicians extraordinaire Robbie Link and Beverly Botsford, in a one-night only improvised performance inspired by its current 4 Directions exhibit, featuring the work of Marguerite Jay Gignoux, A. Brooke Heuts, Harriet Hoover and Carolyn Nelson.  This is the first time LIGHT will serve as a venue for a public musical performance.

In April 2015, Alison led an improvising ensemble for the sold-out closing reception of MASKS AND MIRRORS at Cassilhaus Gallery in Chapel Hill, featuring the works of Mary Jane Rivers, Bryant Holsenbeck and Marcy Litle. The May 20th ensemble will take a similar approach, as the musicians bring their unique vocabularies into spontaneous conversation with each other. Live music in the exhibit hall deepens the experience of the visual art for all participants. The sketches are alive in the moment, and then they are gone, transformed into memories for those present. Unlike the physical art works, the process of the musical dialog itself is the result. This is the joy of improvisational music. The audience will be invited to participate in the conversations.

The performance will be held at LIGHT on Friday May 20th, 2016 at 8:00pm. A limited number of tickets are $20, available online at http://www.lightartdesign.com/shop/music or by calling 919-942-7077. LIGHT is located at 601 West Rosemary Street, Suite 110 (in the Greenbridge Building on the Merritt Mill Road side) in Chapel Hill.

LIGHT ART+DESIGN promotes the work of contemporary artists and the awareness of innovative, sustainable design. For more information, contact Sarah Blaine at (919) 924-7077. www.lightartdesign.com
