Friday, May 4 – Sunday, July 22, Opening Reception Saturday, May 19, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm – The Spirit Books

Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord’s Spirit Books will be displayed in the Arnold Arboretum’s Hunnewell Building’s Visitor Center May 4 – July 22. These art books reveal Gaylord’s connection between the inherent spirituality and mystery of nature with the long-standing tradition of books as testaments of faith and belief. She gathers twigs, branches, vines, and roots, then uses them to cradle her stitched, wordless books. Incorporating beads and seeds with handmade papers from around the world, she constructs sculptural altars; the supports of natural materials as integral to the art as the beautiful books they cradle. From a distance, these books do evoke sculptures; however, their essential “bookness” becomes apparent upon closer observation. Gaylord encourages “reading” the books as a contemplative experience, one that will take the viewer out of the everyday world. Gaylord is best known for her Spirit Books. Since she created her first one in 1992 and coined the name, the Spirit Books have been exhibited throughout the US, Canada, and in Korea. She has exhibited at the Center for Book Arts in New York City, the University of Indiana Art Gallery, Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, and the Seungnam Book Fair in Seungnam, Korea. Spirit Books are in the book arts collections at Bowdoin College and the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton county, and many private collections. They are also well-represented in print.

Thank you to Dance Informa Magazine for the wonderful review of Conference of the Birds! Anikaya Dance Theater will be bringing this stunning production on tour, so please keep an eye on the flock!

    Dissolving into one: ANIKAYA Dance Theater's 'Conference of the Birds'
    Boston Center for the Arts, Boston, Massachusetts. April 7, 2018. Strictly speaking, there is unity and there is division. What if there could be unity even with difference, if difference didn't have to mean division? Dance can probe such questions through use of oppositional and unison timing, as well as other choreographic tools and movement [...]

Wednesday, May 2, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm – Evoking Nature: Form and Function on the High Line

The High Line in Manhattan was born of a city that is constantly reinventing itself. Built on a mile-and-a-half long elevated railroad, this dynamic landscape was inspired by the tenacity of plants in its industrial setting, and it uses a matrix of perennial and woody plants to evoke a natural landscape. Wildly successful and overwhelmingly popular, caring for this garden in the sky poses unique challenges. Andi will describe how her team uses traditional and innovative horticultural techniques, how they work to promote the park’s biodiversity and wildlife habitat, and how they foster an emotional connection to nature in this challenging urban environment.

Wednesday, April 25, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm – Nibbling on Natives in Your Backyard

There’s an increasing interest among homeowners, property managers, and others in utilizing more native species in their landscaping to attract and sustain beneficial insects and pollinators as well as to provide food and shelter for birds and other animals. Yet, for some people, these reasons alone may be insufficient motivation to “go native.” Perhaps knowing that many native species can be eaten by people will provide the additional incentive you need to add native species to your yard. Join Russ Cohen on Wednesday, April 25 at 7 pm at the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary in Topsfield, Massachusetts for a 90-minute slide show featuring at least two dozen species of native edible wild plants suitable for your own landscape, or for nibbling as you encounter them in other locales. Russ will supply helpful handouts and bring along samples of goodies made from foraged edible native species for participants to taste. Cosponsored by New England Wild Life Society and the Massachusetts Audubon Society, the lecture is $20 for members of sponsoring organizations, $24 for nonmembers.
