Warm up this evening in the festive art-filled WAAM while you enjoy some wonderful entertainment by Esopus Musicalia. Tonight’s concert, at 7:30, will feature Corelli’s Christmas Concerto, Barber’s Adagio for Strings, and two Vivaldi works. The accompanying lecture by Dr. Randy Angiel, beginning at 6:30, is “Money, Politics and Music: Sponsorship and Copyrights.” Ticket sales start at 6 PM – $15 for adults, $12 for children, seniors, and WAAM members.
The WAAM will be closed in January, but the Executive Board decided at a recent meeting to re-open our red doors in February with a new exhibit called “Sketches.” Look through your studios for pages from sketchbooks, written and drawn preparatory visions, old and new designs of form, rough-hewn images, maquettes…any notes for future ideas. The show is non-juried, all media accepted, and pieces should be submitted as two works, framed separately or together. The size limit is 24″ x 24″, or for sculpture, 24″ x 24″ x 24″. Intake for Sketches and for the usual Small Works exhibit is Monday, February 8, the reception on Saturday, February 13, and pickup of work is Monday, March 1. Work in the current exhibits should be picked up on Monday, January 4.
A new show is up at Oriole 9 featuring work by well-known WAAM artist Hattie Iles, and Sweetbryar Ludwig of the Five Points Band. Lenny Kislin does a splendid job of curating monthly exhibits at this restaurant, right across the street from the WAAM. Stop in tomorrow (Saturday) between 5 and 7 PM to meet the artists and sample some of the great food.
A most merry Christmas and happy Chanukah and joyous Solstice or whatever you celebrate to everyone!
