ONE NIGHT STAND
FROM ILLUSIONS TO THE REALITY OF LOVE/ NEW PAINTINGS
Vernissage: Friday March 18, 2011 / 7-10pm
Tunes by Big Mac Daddy
Proudly sponsored by CKCU 93.1 FM
From Illusions to the reality of loveIllusions are everything that is based in fear. We learn about love by learning what love is not. Fears cause actions that are not love. Love is. Fears in my paintings are represented by black and red and words. The road less travelled shows a bumpy road back and forth road to love. In half-dotted, dots of fear cross over into love. Each individual’s path sometimes goes from Spiritual Enlightenment to Spiritual Master to Ascension represented by a white star. Along the path you recognize who you really are - you are your core of love. Next you realize all you are is love. Then you recognize that the other person is you. Home base is love. This is shown in the painting: Bases of love. Tomorrow’s God by Neale Donald Walsh lists the ten illusions of humans: need exists, failure exists, disunity exists, insufficiency exists, requirement exists, judgement exists, condemnation exists, superiority exists, and ignorance exists. I have illustrated three of these illusions in my painting: disunity, insufficiency and superiority. – Susan Shepard
March 18th – Music from the Big House -- AT THE BLACK SHEEP INN
(2010, dir Bruce McDonald, Canada)
From bad boy Canadian filmmaker Bruce McDonald comes this remarkable film of awardwinning recording artist Rita Chiarelli's pilgrimage to Louisiana State Maximum Security Penitentiary – an institution iconic in the birth of the Blues. She never imagined that her love for her music would have her raising the roof in a prison, accompanied by lifers serving time for murder, rape and armed robbery. Music has given these men something to live for. One woman, four bands, and 90 minutes of blues.
Friday, March 18th screening/show at The Black Sheep Inn, 753 Riverside Dr., Wakefield. Finale: one screening at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $7.50 each ($20 for WIFF Finale), or Festival Pass for all 7 films (and Finale show) for $50. Single tickets for the Sunday shows may be purchased at the Theatre Wakefield website, or at the door the night of the show. Tickets for the finale are available at www.theblacksheepinn.com

Statement by Paul Sharp:
"In Japan people welcomed me into their homes with no thought of reward past a few yarns about Canada. Without imploring them to share, my Japanese friends were too humble to think I would be interested in hearing their stories. Talk of beavers, hockey, maple syrup and other Canadiana were received as high culture yet when I asked about Japan nobody wanted to make a fuss. Japanese people, with their beautiful country and strong culture are always surprised that others might be interested in their stories. In fact, they are so humble that would probably never think to ask for help, even when faced with so much destruction.
I noticed Japanese culture before ever getting onto a plane; yen notes don’t feature prime ministers or emperors; authors adorned the bills. In Canada Japanese culture brightens our days. Japanese foods are ubiquitous; people everywhere enjoy their visual and traditional arts, others practice traditional Japanese hobbies or take pleasure in Japanese pop culture. Of course the earthquake and tsunami in Japan have impacted us emotionally but it’s our deep connection to the country through her cultural exports makes our desire to help so strong. These cultural links make the scenes of devastation and our feelings of helplessness hurt even more because we feel like we know these suffering neighbors so well. What better way to help raise money for affected people, whose cultural achievements have benefited us so much, than with our own cultural night in their honor". - Paul Sharp, 2011
Local artists have come together in order to raise money for emergency earthquake & tsunami relief in Japan.
More than 50 artists will donate work that is affordably priced and will be sold with 100% of sales going to help the tragic situation in Japan.
Please come out on March 19 at La Petite Mort Gallery to support the HERE FOR THERE II cause.
Help us raise money for the thousands of people affected by this devastating earthquake and who are desperate for provisions & supplies.
A minimum $5 donation fee will be asked for from all attending. Please join us and let’s make a difference for those who need help now!

Deborah Arnold & Uta Riccius
March 15th – April 23, 2011
Exhibit opening Saturday March 19th from 2 pm to 4 pm
At the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum
The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum presents Sheltering by Deborah Arnold & Uta Riccius. Deborah is working with found recycled fabrics and other materials to present eggs and nests. Uta is weaving insulation foam to make nests that will be installed inside the museum and on Mill Street in Almonte.
Nests showcase a universal need to find “home”. With today’s environmental impact of climate change and urban sprawl, animals, insects and birds have to find alternative methods of securing their homes. The collection of nests on display provides alternative ephemeral shelter situations. Traditional types of nesting materials such as leaves, twigs and grasses are replaced with artificial materials appropriated from not only our every day consumer society, but also from materials found in construction industry.
The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum is located at 3 Rosamond Street East, Almonte, ON K0A 1A0
