What: A Timely Talk: An evening with Susan Erony

Where:  ZOOM

When:  April 20, 2022, 7:00pm

Experimental group of RAAM presents Susan Erony 

Please join us as we listen to artist and independent scholar Susan Erony. This exciting talk is free and open to the public!  All are welcome!

Susan Erony is an artist and independent scholar based in Gloucester, MA. Her artwork has focused primarily on history and the human condition, has been widely exhibited, and is in public and private collections in the United States, Canada, Germany, Italy, Israel, Mexico and Ukraine. She has worked as a writer, curator, lecturer and teacher, always focusing on the intersection of art and society, and is currently represented by the Matthew Swift Gallery in Gloucester, MA.

A Timely Talk:

Art and politics are strange bedfellows. The first is in the realm of the spiritual, the magical and unconscious. We want art to move us, help us find transcendence and peace in a troubled world. Politics is in the realm of governing, and is about power. At its best, its goals are humane and generous. Susan believes art and politics do not cross, but art has a role in society’s ability to deal with dark times.  What is that role?

The Experimental Group is a creative forum, its main mission is to increase public awareness and to foster self-expression by bringing artists together to explore and share ideas that cultivate creative freedom. The EG is encouraged and supported by the Rockport Art Association & Museum.

Dear Windhover Friends,

With the arrival of the choirs of spring peepers (tree frogs) singing throughout Cape Ann as of last evening, spring has begun! Windhover Performing Arts Center is taking flight this year with wonderful news and happenings. Through the generous support of so many, we have purchased a permanent frame tent covering that will enable live performances at Windhover, rain or shine!  I am most grateful for this support, and I invite all of you to come visit our Windhover campus this summer to experience our performances under the brand-new open-air tent. The tent is scheduled to be installed during the first week in May. Once the tent is installed, I will provide an update with photos.

Finally it’s almost here! Quarry Dance X Online
Cape Ann’s signature dance event, Quarry Dance X: The Film, will have its premiere on Zoom in early April and be released on Vimeo and Windhover.org. The premiere features Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre dancers filmed at two private Cape Ann quarries during the summer of 2021. This 30-minute film, produced by Windhover and filmed by Anders Johnson, features original music composed by Joe Mulholland, Professor of Harmony/Jazz Composition at Berklee School of Music in Boston. The Zoom premiere is free to attend. Registration information to see the film will be sent out in late March. 

Another Incredible Summer at Windhover 
Windhover is proud to welcome audiences back for an array of exciting, inspiring outdoor events this summer. The 2022 schedule of performances, dance company residencies, classes and workshops is nearly set. The Gloucester Stage Company will return for the month of July. The newly formed Lanes Coven Theater Company will present two weeks of performances of Shakespeare’s Macbeth in August. Windhover is looking forward to hosting notable dance performances by Cornfield Dance, Continuum Contemporary Ballet, Queen of Nori Dance, Saving Grace Dance Ensemble, the North Atlantic Dance Theatre and more. Windhover will also offer movement and dance classes, as well as meditation and yoga retreats this season. To preview the 2022 season see the schedule here and check for weekly updates.
