Old SchoolHouse Art Gallery
To all the creators out there; artists and writers of all persuasions.

It is one month before the first open members show for the Old SchoolHouse Gallery. TRANSITIONS: BETWIXT AND BETWEEN opens on July 1 and works need to be ready by June 27. (Membership is $10)

Some thoughts to get you creating:

tran-si-tion
1. the act of passing from one state or place to the next 2. an event that results in a transformation 3. a change from one place or state or subject or stage to another 4. a musical passage moving from one key to another 5. a passage that connects a topic to one that follows

All life is constantly in transition. Nothing stays the same. Our island is in transition; new people come, old friends leave, ideas and groups come and go. Change can be uncomfortable, exhilarating, both at once. It is the unknown place. Something has gone, nothing has yet taken its place. The state between the end and beginning again, or the space between forming an idea and executing it. No firm ground under your feet.

Transform; Transgender; Shapeshift; The place between sleeping and waking; Life transitions - birth, death, re-birth, getting your gold card.

Places: doorways, windows, stairways, ferry boats

Landscapes: the seashore..moving from land to sea and back again; the horizon...the space between earth or water and sky; tides; tidal pools. Being at sea, both literally and figuratively.

Lets have fun with this and put together an exciting show. Call Janet or Lynne, 0110, for more information.
