Bygone Beacons: The James River Lighthouses and Their Lightkeepers External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
Venue: The Mariners' Museum and Parkl
Larry Saint and Karla Smith are co-authors of Screwpiles: The Forgotten Lighthouses. Published as a fundraiser for Suffolk River Heritage, the book is the result of years of extensive research, interviews, and writing about the lighthouses of the Chesapeake Bay, James River, and North Carolina Sounds. //// The James River lighthouses played an important role in our country's history, first exhibiting their lights in 1855 in response to increasing steamship traffic. At the time, their design was unique, using a newly invented screwpile foundation that supported a cottage-style residence and cupola to house the light. The lightkeepers were dedicated men and women, living in often harsh conditions as they maintained their light. On duty around the clock, they seldom had the opportunity to be home. Hear fascinating stories of the people and places that made the James River lighthouses so important during the golden age of steamship travel, and how changing technology and declining river commerce forced their demise starting in the 1930's. ///// To purchase an advance copy of Bygone Beacons prior to the lecture, go to the Museum’s online web shop at: https://shop.marinersmuseum.org/screwpiles-the-forgotten-lighthouses.html. After you've made your purchase, your book will be placed on hold at the Museum to either pick up at your convenience or prior to the lecture.
FREE for Members; $5 for guests

When Water Dreams - Art Reception & Artist Talk External Event Page
Sausalito, California
Canadian artist/photographer Bill Peters presents large-scale color images of the salt ponds, sloughs and wetlands of San Francisco Bay shot from a helicopter from 2009 through July of this year. The shoreline of San Francisco Bay is a crucible where the human forces that work on land and water intersect with nature. Infused with the graphic power and emotional sensibilities of formalist abstract art and color field painting, Peters' work surprises: at first glance it appears fully abstract, indistinguishable from paintings. On closer inspection, however, roads, boats, birds, vehicles and vegetation reveal the work as stunning photographs of San Francisco Bay landscapes and waterscapes. Peters is an international visual artist who has had over 30 exhibitions in US and Canadian museums and galleries. His work is included in the Province of Alberta's collection. //// November 19, 2019 - January 25, 2020 exhibition dates //// Reception: Sat, Nov 23, 1pm-3pm and Art Talk starts 1:30pm

Emanation 2019 External Event Page
Millville, New Jersey
Emanation 2019 is on display through December 31, 2019 in the Museum of American Glass at WheatonArts! Emanation 2019 is the third exhibition of contemporary art featuring new works developed and created by artists invited to utilize the resources and facilities at WheatonArts for experiment based exploration. The results are displayed with an emphasis on each artist's creative process. "The artists in this iteration of Emanation have not previously worked in glass, but are creative thinkers and problem solvers, who have embraced the opportunity to experiment in a new medium," notes Julie Courtney, curator of Emanation 2019. The artists she brought to the project each have a unique perspective and aesthetic on the integration of glass into their works, creating powerful visuals (and even sounds) relating to invisible labor, prison incarceration rates, beauty in destruction, and "cartoon violence," just to name a few. Artists participating in the exhibit are Jesse Krimes, Tristin Lowe, Martha McDonald and Laura Baird, Karyn Olivier, Richard Torchia, Allan Wexler, and Jo Yarrington. Open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is included with general admission to WheatonArts.
