Natural Solutions to Sleep Disorders
Monday, January 6th 2014, 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Posted By: The Redwood Clinic
Would you like to wake refreshed after a night of undisturbed sleep? How great would it be if you were finally able to sleep well? At least 40 million Americans suffer each year from chronic, long-term sleep disorders, and an additional 20 million experience occasional sleeping problems. These disorders and the resulting sleep deprivation interfere with work, driving, and social activities. They also account for an estimated $16 billion in medical costs each year, while the indirect costs due to lost productivity and other factors are probably much greater. Imagine feeling increased energy and getting the essential benefits of a restfull sleep. It is possible, it is safe, and it is easy. Please join us at Savvy Rest on Monday, January 6, 2014 from 6:00 - 7:00 pm for Dr. Jay Sordean's lecture, "Natural Solutions to Sleep Disorders." During this engaging presentation, Dr. Jay covers key issues related to sleep disorders and how you can improve your health by overcoming sleeplessness, naturally. Dr. Sordean's innovative solutions will surely keep you awake during the lecture! If you know of someone in your life who has sleep difficulties, please tell them about the workshop. Sleeping great every night can positively change all aspects of our lives. We will be giving away prizes and gifts as well! If you have an immediate question about sleep disorders, please click on the following link: http://www.askdatabase.com/campaigns/?af=42428 We also have a YOU TUBE announcement of the lecture at the following link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-TwMotKfkI (You may use it as a substitute for counting sheep at night if you are having trouble falling asleep.)

ART OPENING NIGHT @ FIREHOUSE GALLERY NORTH
Sunday, October 13th 2013, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Posted By: Firehouse North Gallery
PHOTOGRAPHY BY KEVIN CHEAH www.kevinHcheah.com Over the past few months art has become very therapeutic for me. Adjusting back to living in America has not been an easy process. I am at a big crossroads in my life; happy in the present and excited for the future, with a vivid nostalgia of people and places of the past. Photography is an eternal reality of time, allowing documentation of the places I will go and all the places I have been. Social media is the forefront way of staying connected with friends and family these days. With a click of a button, smart phone applications make it easy to feel the connection we long for on this lonely planet. My new series of work entitled "Art Therapy" involves some of the lovely people I have met and places I have been in the four years I spent abroad. Riding my bike around Berkeley, I began snapping photographs of things in my neighborhood.

Embodied Storytelling for Men
Friday, September 6th 2013, 7:00pm - Sunday, September 29th 2013, 8:30pm
Posted By: InterPlay
with certified InterPlay leaders John Diller and Connors McConville Four Thursdays in September (9/5, 9/12, 9/19, 9/26), 7-8:30 p.m., plus an informal performance Sat. 9/28 6:00 p.m. Do you sometimes feel like you're living from the neck up or like you can't find the words you want? Do you want to more fully feel and express your stories when sharing with others? Join us for this one-month, five-session class, where we'll use the very accessible tools and forms of InterPlay to have fun together and free ourselves to be who we are and say what we want. Beginners welcome. You don't need any storytelling or InterPlay expertise to enjoy this class (and if you have some experience, that works well, too). We'll have a little performance at the end for family and friends. You can choose whether to participate or just witness. Why just men? Interesting things happen when men get together. Sometimes it's just easier for men to be themselves around other men in a supportive environment, and almost always the support and connection feel especially rewarding in a circle of men. We ask that you sign up for the whole series of classes. But you can come to the first session to give it a try before you commit. You may use a 4-class ($48) or 10-class card ($90) toward the cost of this workshop if you have one or want to purchase one. Cost: $60 (includes all five sessions) To Register: 510/465-2797 or come to the first class

Posted By: Earth Tribe Yoga
Last Month Earth Tribe welcomed the wonderful Nectarian Collective for a Music and Movement style Hatha class with Travis, and a performance after. They loved it so much that one of their members, Sea Star, decided to return to Earth Tribe! We are so excited to welcome Sea Star back to Earth Tribe! About Sea Star(www.seastarmusic.bandcamp.com) Sea Star weaves tapestries of sounds, pulling on the ancient wisdom in her soul that is pure awakening medicine for the planet. One day it occurred to her to combine her lifelong church choir singing, her soul-searching poetry, and her growing guitar skill into one entity- the first song. The weaving of the song became a journey that hasn't stopped since its inception. Vital to the essence of her music is the deepening realization that world change begins within. A simultaneously powerful and heavenly voice, carrying with it the wisdom of the ages, cleanses you as you receive it, assisting the people of this world to set themselves free, discover naked truth, and shine the unique light within them. The night's schedule will be as follows: 7pm-Hatha with Travis accompanied by Sea Star 8:30pm-Sea Star and Peter Barley The night is donation based, please help us continue to do more events like this in the future. Remember YOU make donation yoga possible!

Co-Ownership Legal Cafe Night w/SELC (Oakland/E'ville)

Posted By: East Bay Cohousing
Are you thinking of buying property with friends, business or romantic partners, or members of your extended family? Co-owning property can be complicated, both legally and financially, and the inter-personal dynamics can be particularly challenging. The Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC) and East Bay Cohousing had so much fun and interest at the (Co)Housing Legal Cafe event in May, that we're doing another. From 4:30 to 6:00, SELC will offer participants the opportunity to consult with volunteer attorneys. From 6:00 to 7:30, attorney Frederick Hertz will be present and available for conversations about community-building and co-ownership arrangements. He has worked with co-owners for more than 25 years, creating agreements and resolving co-ownership conflicts as a mediator and lawyer. Come talk with Fred about the (structural) options available to co-owners, and learn about the most effective methods for resolving differences of opinion among co-owners. Frederick Hertz is an attorney and mediator with offices in Oakland and San Francisco. He previously handled litigation involving the dissolution of real property co-tenancies, including tenants-in-common, family co-ownerships, and domestic partnership dissolutions, and the related aspects of property and financial disputes between unmarried couples, both same-sex and opposite-sex, as well as purchase & sale and ownership of real property matters.

Two Time Grammy Winng Jazz: Mads Tolling Quartet
Saturday, August 17th 2013, 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Posted By: Rhythmix Cultural Works
When: Friday, August 16th, 8:00 pm Where: Rhythmix Cultural Works, 2513 Blanding Avenue, Alameda Cost: $15 advance, $20/door Info and tix: www.rhythmix.org Mads Tolling comes to Rhythmix with his quartet fresh off a featured slot at SFJAZZ's Hotplate performance series. Mads is an internationally renowned violinist, violist, and composer and also a former eight year member of the two-time Grammy-winning Turtle Island Quartet. After touring extensively with acclaimed bassist Stanley Clarke's band, Mads has led his own group, the Mads Tolling Quartet (MTQ). Coming together through the eclectic San Francisco jazz scene, MTQ features Dave Mac Nab on guitar, Sam Bevan on bass, Eric Garland on drums, with Mads' violin integrated into a formerly traditional jazz combo. All four instruments play unconventional roles to make the music come to life. Violin may act as drum, guitar may take bass lines and bass may carry the melody. There are some moments of pure spontaneity, but underlying the concept of MTQ are thoughtful compositions and arrangements. All four players have re-thought their instruments in a fresh way, relying on their instincts to let the music speak for itself. "A wonderful new voice on the violin - very refreshing!" -Chick Corea

Small Worlds Exhibit 2nd Friday Reception
Saturday, August 10th 2013, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Posted By: Rhythmix Cultural Works
When: Second Friday Reception: Friday, August 9, 2013 Time: 7-9pm Exhibition runs: July 12 - August 31, 2013 Where: Rhythmix Cultural Works K Gallery 2513 Blanding Avenue, Alameda Cost: FREE The K Gallery at Rhythmix presents Small Worlds, a collection of scaled down and miniature works displaying a variety of rendering techniques ranging from collage tomicron pen and ink drawings. Though physically smaller, the works explore the limits of content density and labor intensiveness within a confined space. In the tradition of Persian and Western Medieval illustratedmanuscripts, the smaller scales of the images engage the viewer at an immediate distance, welcoming them to enter a presented microcosm of each artist's worldview. Though each of the artists create their own world through personal experience and sphere of interest as well as physical psychogeography, they may often find such overlapping and universal themes as occultism, futurism, myth and lore. The images exhibited by the artists are representations of both individual and universal archetypes within the small world of perception in the mind. Therefore, each piece may become a small world in and of itself. Featuring works by: Cara Adams, Owen Everett, Rosie Morales, Edward Swanson, and Michael Tunk.

Complementary Currencies Conference report-back: Time Banks

Posted By: East Bay Cohousing
At the Complementary Currencies conference at The Hague last month, we connected with Stephanie Rearick, a Madison, Wisconsin-based activist, community organizer, and musician who's coming to the Bay Area next month, with a matinee performance right across the street from our East Bay Cohousing clubhouse. So we're putting together a brunch & conversation circles in advance of her 4 PM musical performance Sunday 8/4 at The Starry Plough. We've invited her to share about international and domestic innovations in time-banking, complementary currencies, and other tools that help people and groups collaborate and build their own community economies. In the spirit of encouraging complementary currencies and thinking diferently about money, we are offering several different ways to pay, including cash donations, work-trade, in-kind hours (including coordinated cooking and outreach and helping EBCOHO organize), Bay Area Community Exchange (BACE) hours, and barter. Note, this is not a free event, as we are investing together to provide a place for Stephanie to stay and in the food and the space, and want to be able to share with her the bounty of the Bay Area. Based in Madison, Wisconsin, Stephanie Rearick is founder and Co-Director of the Dane County TimeBank, a 2075-member time exchange, and Project Coordinator of Time For the World. RSVP via EBCOHO to save a spot. Alternative payment methods/currencies/barter/timebank hours welcomed.

Unraveling the SF Housing Boom through Systems Thinking (SF)
Sunday, July 21st 2013, 1:00pm - 2:30pm
Posted By: East Bay Cohousing
Systems thinking is a framework that examines problems by observing the web of interconnections that make up the systems around us. It helps you think broadly, identify unintended consequences to poorly constructed solutions, and better grasp the complex nature of society. Freespace (where this event is being held) is an example of a community system, which is complex, dynamic, and self-organizing. In this 1.5-hour session, we'll talk about systems that are everywhere, and learn the visual language of systems thinking that will help you put your mental models onto paper. We'll collaborate as a group to build a model exploring the factors leading to the SF Housing Price Spikes. Come with an open mind, and leave with wisdom from others! To get a taste visit: http://systemsandus.com/systems-thinking/ Note: This is not a cohousing-centered event and we won't be there in person, but we are cross-listing it based on the topic interest - and in the knowledge that we won't be able to create community together in expensive markets without creative solutions that come form innovative approaches like this. It's also at an interesting temporary pop-up community space that could, should it continue, be a great meeting place for cohousing gatherings: http://freespace.io/

This regular monthly community tour and open house of the East Bay's biggest and most "suburban" cohousing neighborhood, Pleasant Hill cohousing, the only "new-build" classic cohousing community in the region, the largest in the East Bay, and a lovely community. There are 32 units, grouped in various configurations ranging from 2-6 homes per building. The buildings were constructed with wood framing, stucco outer walls, and corrogated metal roofing. The smallest units are 675 sq ft one-bedrooms; the largest are 1707 sq ft four-bedrooms. Each home has its own kitchen. The homes are owned individually as condominiums. Our 3,835 sq ft Common House contains a kitchen, dining room ("great room"), sitting room, laundry, kids room, teens/older kids room, crafts room, guest rooms, bathrooms, and fireplace. The Common House is the only building in the project that has air conditioning. However to minimize the use of air conditioning, the building also has a cooling tower with large fans that can be used in the evening to pull cooler air into the building and push hot air out.Other common facilities include swimming pool, hot tub, large sandbox/play area, workshop, bike shed, organic garden, and granite boulders from original site - both decorative and used by children for climbing. We're conveniently located near Highway 680 and public transportation, with easy access to Walnut Creek, shopping, and recreation. Learn more; RSVP required via the East Bay Cohousing website.
Slide
Saturday, June 8th 2013, 6:00pm - Sunday, June 30th 2013, 9:00pm
Posted By: The Joyce Gordon Gallery
June 7- June 29, 2013 Opening Reception: First Friday, June 7, 6-9pm Artist Talk and Book Reading: Saturday June 22nd 1-4pm Participating Artists: Christine Balza, Xiomara Castro, Samantha Chundur, Nicole Dixon, Jon Fischer, Trevor Parham, Tomyé, Jamie Treacy, and Monica Zarazua Joyce Gordon Gallery presents, "SLIDE" an exhibition that partners visual and literary arts in order to deepen the act of storytelling. Seven short stories written by author Monica Zarazua are translated into the mediums of painting, mixed media, sculpture, video, and photography. The writing process involves figuring out the words, characters, and incidents needed to tell a story. It involves making connections between parts. Once the story is captured, is the ending final? In this exhibition the answer is no, never; stories evolve as they gain new storytellers. In this collaboration each artist expands on an aspect of a written story from the collection Slide that resonates with him or her. The artwork transforms images, feelings, and ideas expressed with written words into physical forms. With these new interpretations, the connections between individual worlds, both internal and external, are revealed. The stories expand and deepen as different artists express what is most true for them.

With lively vocals, bamboo flutes, shamisen and taiko drums, Ensohza Minyoshu's musicians set the stage for a program of folk songs and dances that showcase Japan's ancient and spirited community traditions to celebrate harvests, honor ancestors, and cheer hardworking laborers. Maze Daiko blends global inspiration with a wide range of percussion to create contemporary interpretations for taiko. This dynamic ensemble layers intricate rhythms and fills the stage with vitality and energetic choreography. Maze Daiko performs original compositions influenced by world cultures including Japan, Africa and Cuba with the physical elegance and vibrant sounds of taiko. The group's name is derived from the Japanese word for "mix" (Mazeru) and taiko (daiko) is the Japanese word for "drum." In collaboration with Ensohza for this special evening, the two collectives explore new dimensions of traditional Japanese movement and expression.

Cohouseholding Potluck: A new Model for Shared Households
Monday, June 17th 2013, 10:15am - 12:30pm
Posted By: East Bay Cohousing
Sharing a House/Apartment? Love it or Hate it, it's a reality for many Berkeley/Oakland residents, and thousands more in the greater East Bay. Come learn and share about Cohouseholding - an emerging model to help more people thrive in shared households. Unlike the Cohousing model (multiple private homes sharing common facilities), Cohouseholding focuses on unrelated adults who share a single dwelling - creating shared households. We'll hear from and talk about lessons learned from co-op houses,collectives, cohousing, and other intentional communities. Its is also drawing insights from organized home share programs and many related experts, including attorneys, architects, planners, economists, process facilitators, and community activists. Project goals are to define, support, and promote an optimized model that helps people create and sustain more successful shared households that better serve the needs of a broader range of people... young and old, rich and poor, etc.

Living in Community Salon:Dynamic Governance & Sociocracy
Saturday, May 25th 2013, 6:30pm - 10:00pm
Posted By: East Bay Cohousing
East Bay Cohousing's friends at Living Mandala are offering a 2.5-hour experiential workshop led by trainer and consultant John Shinnerer, who led a similar workshop with us last fall and helped train San Francisco Cohousing. You will see how groups of different sizes and intentions can organize to get work done and coordinate decision-making through Sociocracy (a.k.a. Dynamic Governance). This is a whole systems approach finding use in cohousing, business, nonprofit, worker cooperative, or any group of people wanting to organize and govern themselves effectively and efficiently. Basic principles are equivalence and transparency, and optimizing group intelligence and wisdom while retaining respect for individual similarities and differences. You will get tools AND a sneak preview of the extended weekend workshop John is leading there at a fraction of the cost --- then decide if you want to invest your time and money to followup in depth with your community or forming group. John's workshops are all primarily experiential, offering participants an opportunity to engage directly with issues of governance and sociocratic structure and process in real-life contexts. Essential content delivery on values, principles etc. will be as interactive as possible. Relevance will be focused on intentional communities (and creating and maintaining community in general). Most workshop time will be used for exercises that engage workshop participants with community liv

Happy Birthday Jazz Party for Cohousing Leader at JazzSchool
Monday, May 13th 2013, 4:30pm - 6:30pm
Posted By: East Bay Cohousing
You may have met Yehudit as leader of the monthly Pleasant Hill Cohousing tours listed through She's also a fabulous professional violinist --- classical, orchestral, and swing jazz! Yehudit is leading her own performance jam and birthday bash with friends at the Berkeley Jazz School in downtown Berkeley, this afternoon. Jazz violinist Yehudit (at right) (pronounced "yeah who DEET") has made a place for herself in the forefront of the jazz mainstream, demonstrating that the electric violin, in her hands, is a convincing and innovative jazz instrument. She has headlined at Yoshi's (Oakland), Lunaria (Los Angeles), La Ve Lee (Studio City), Linnaea's Cafe (San Luis Obispo), the Dean Lesher Center for the Arts (Walnut Creek), the Fillmore Street Jazz Festival (San Francisco), the Union Street Art Fair (San Francisco), and other venues in the Bay Area and California. The artists she has appeared with include John Handy, Dan Hicks, Walter Savage, Denise Perrier, and Jules Broussard. In May of 2007, Yehudit resigned her long-time position with the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra in order to devote her full energies to jazz performance and composition. "Yehudit," her debut album, was released in 1997. Her second CD, "Valentine," featuring jazz treatments of classic love songs, was released in 2001; her third solo album, "In the Zone," was released in 2008. All are available through Edgetone Records.
The Art of Appreciating ~ the Courage to Receive: Sun PM
Monday, May 13th 2013, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Posted By: East Bay Cohousing
East Bay Cohousing members are asking: Do you have trouble letting in the good that is around you? When someone says something nice to you, do you uncontrollably and immediately go to standard cultural programming -- "Deny, Minimize and Deflect" -- even when there's no need for it, it ends up invalidating your friend's experience, makes community building that much harder, and in point of fact serves no one? Is your "nutrition barrier" so hyper-active that it prevents you from letting in and metabolizing the very things that what you want and need most? yet you seemingly can't help yourself? These classes on "The Art of Appreciating ~ The Courage to Receive" may be useful for you and helpful in your path to seeking and living in cooperative community. Instructor Paul Hoffman is traveling around the Bay Area, doing these mostly in people's homes, that we might become more aware of this poverty-conscious programming remnant left over in our collective psyche, and what we can do about it. Come join small groups of intrepid explorers, exploring and working on dismantling this bug in our collective software. Classes run 2.5 - 3 hours. By the end each person should come away with some practical tools to lessen this problem in our lives. The cost of the class is "dana", love offering, sliding scale, no one turned away for lack of funds. Refreshments included. No upper limit on amount of acceptable donation. Thanks for your support.

Within Reach: Sustainable Community movie in Marin Friday

Posted By: East Bay Cohousing
If you're 100% sure you've got all you want right now...don't watch it!" - Bill McKibben, founder 350.org WITHIN REACH explores one couple's pedal-powered search for a place to call home. Mandy and Ryan gave up their jobs, cars and traditional houses to "bikepack" 6,500 miles for nearly 2 years around the USA seeking sustainable community. Rather than looking in a traditional neighborhood, they begin to recognize that community is the secret ingredient to living sustainably on this planet. Along the way, they explored 100 Ecovillages, Cohousing Communities, Co-op Houses, Communes, Transition Towns and their own principles and commitment. In the end they return to the timeless truth that community is people; they are everywhere; and there is room for everyone. Join filmmaker Mandy Creighton and Associate Producer/Cohousing Coach Betsy Morris of East Bay Cohousing and the film's fiscal sponsor Fellowship for Intentional Community (FIC) for discussion afterwards, at the Venture Greenhouse in San Rafael. Both their journey and their ?lm have answered the question that they and many others are asking: How can we pass along a lush, beautiful, sustainable world to future generations? After circling the country and interviewing hundreds of Americans, they have found that by reaching within, sustainable community is Within Reach.

Tiny House Villages: From Cohousing Vision to Reality
Thursday, April 18th 2013, 7:45pm - 10:00pm
Posted By: East Bay Cohousing
Would you live in a Tiny House Village - a cluster of cottages with a large community common house? Would you believe it could be built and make housing affordable in the urban East Bay and San Francisco? Would you like to meet someone who has a vision and design for how it can be done, and is recruiting investors and future residents to collaborate on designing these new neighborhoods? Our friend Rabbit (a Berkeley Student Coop Lothlorien alumni who is part of the SpaghettiNight dinner series hosted by cooperative houses in rotation) put forward an idea for such a community on the series' email list, and budding architect/designer Alfred Twu of FirstCultural created some renderings and ran the numbers for how it could be done. We're excited but not convinced that it really is feasible - let's crowdsource our reality-checking and bring our collective wisdom and experience to bear. Come see the vision and hear Alfred present the concept, and places it could be done, based on finding currently-vacant lots in Berkeley, Oakland, and even San Francisco. Join us to discuss what the dynamics of what such a place could be: * Would it work if each house didn't have its own bathroom facilities? * How about kitchens? * Would neighbors allow it? * Would cities approve it? * Would it serve people at different stages of life? RSVP via East Bay Cohousing and come be part of the conversation.

It is an honor to have her as a featured artist along with more women artist in March and to celebrate the gallery's 10th anniversary with this returning artist. Janet will give a discussion of her work (reminiscing the beautiful style of Jacob Lawrence) from 7-8pm. Dinnertime Series (1990-2013) There are three main reasons why my " Dinnertime Series " is my favorite collection of artwork. First of all it is positive and inspiring. Just think about all the childhood or family memories that come from your dinning room table. I take these memories and place them with a visual passion. Brilliant colors from smooth pastels mixed with acrylic paint added just where I believe it is needed. All comes together as reason number two. The third reason this series is so special is because the passion overwhelms me as I'm creating each one. I love my music blasting as my fingernail scratches in the last details that are drawn in the likeness of a chair, which I have sat in at Dinnertime with my family or friends. Everything about this series equals the goodness of people, the power of a families love. The value that is priceless, Dinnertime.

Richard Mayhew: Sketchbook
Saturday, February 2nd 2013, 2:00am - Friday, March 1st 2013, 5:00am
Posted By: The Joyce Gordon Gallery
Please join us next Friday, February 1st from 6 - 9pm for the opening reception of "Sketchbook" by acclaimed painter, Richard Mayhew who will talk about the his new drawing and sketch series. Front Gallery Born in Amityville, NY, the acclaimed American Painter of Expressionistic landscapes, Richard Mayhew is particularly admired for his exploration of the use of color. Inspired by the natural environment, Mayhew uses color, space, and form to express what he has called "a universal space with the illusion of time." Mayhew told American Visions writer Lizzetta LeFalle-Collins that "My art is based on a feeling of music and mood and sensitivity and the audio responses of sound and space. I want the essence of the inner soul to be on the canvas." Diverging from these landscapes to introduce a collection of brilliantly rendered drawings and sketches titled "Sketchbook", Mayhew made this first ever debut of work four months at Evolve the Gallery in Sacramento, CA. This exhibit now makes its way to Oakland at the Joyce Gordon Gallery, which provides an incredible opportunity to not only view Mr. Mayhew's newly created drawings and sketches, but also engage him in a personal dialogue about his work. www.joycegordongallery.com

Richard Mayhew: Sketchbook Closing Reception and Lecture

Posted By: The Joyce Gordon Gallery
Join us for a special presentation in celebration of Black History month and closing reception for Richard Mayhew. Richard Mayhew will present a lecture series on the Spiral Group and a slide presentation on the works of Romare Bearden at Joyce Gordon Gallery . Diverging from his landscapes to introduce a collection of brilliantly rendered drawings and sketches titled "Sketchbook", Mayhew made this first ever debut of work four months at Evolve the Gallery in Sacramento, CA. This exhibit has made its way to Oakland at the Joyce Gordon Gallery, which provides an incredible opportunity to not only view Mr. Mayhew’s newly created drawings and sketches, but also engage him in a personal dialogue about his work. About the Spiral Group: Spiral was a collective of African-American artists with founding members, Romare Bearden, Richard Mayhew, Charles Alston, and more on July 5, 1963. It has since become the name of an exhibition, Spiral: Perspectives on an African-American Art Collective. The Spiral group was relatively ignored in much traditional art history since its demise. But interest in the group was rekindled by a group exhibition of the collective in Birmingham and New York in 2010-2011, and the associated catalogs. The exhibition looks at the way the Spiral collective came into its own during a period of American history full of unrest, and the varied visual responses of African-American artists. www.joycegordongallery.com

Opening Reception: First Friday, January 4, 6-9pm Artist Talk: First Friday, January 4th 7-8pm Lisa Alonzo Jonathan Blair James Gayles Ruth Tabancay Joyce Gordon Gallery presents "The Dichotomy of Art", an attempt to examine the interdisciplinary practices among artists, not just of their interchangeable artistic media but also the cross sections of their careers. In 1976, an art program at Columbia College of Chicago was created to examine and explore the interdisciplinary use of techniques from across the fine, performing and multimedia arts. This diverse media approach previously existed as pedagogies of multi-academia challenged each perpetual field of study, usually for the purpose of reaching a mutual task. This later became a method for art students to expand their use of diverse techniques that explore and push the boundaries for new future terrains of art. "The Dichotomy of Art" pushes these boundaries even further by examining the artwork of four predominantly Bay Area artists whose interdisciplinary practice involve tools commonly used by professionals in the white and blue-collar sector of society that consist of commercial graphics, culinary arts and microbiology.

Occupy: The Plein Air Story

Posted By: The Joyce Gordon Gallery
November 2 - Dec 1st, 2012 Opening Reception: First Friday, November 2nd, 6-9pm Poetry from the OccupyAnthology.org: Saturday, November 3rd, 3-5pm Panel Discussion: November 24th Anthony Holdsworth, Jessica Jirsa and John Paul Marcelo with guest artists, Tomye and Rick Rocamora Joyce Gordon Gallery presents “Occupy: The Plein Air Story”, an exhibition marking the anniversary and historical events of the Occupy Movement from the perspective of three Bay Area plein air painters. More than two years ago, movements around the world challenging the economic inequalities of a “Pareto Principle” like system resulted in what we now call the Occupy Movement. As major movements emerged in San Francisco and Oakland, Ca., three plein air painters entered the scene to bear witness to these local movements with a synoptic view on canvas; an organic step away from the commonly respected graphic design posters and photographs that normally offer a visual account of social and political struggles. Their painted stories reflect an onerous and yet more intimate viewpoint from which to understand the voices of the encamped movement. They gained notable press recognition for their Jim Pollock (Vietnam War Combat Artist) approach to recording history.

A Gospel According to Matthew: LGBTQ History in Watercolor
Saturday, November 3rd 2012, 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Posted By: Show & Tell
Join Show & Tell Friday November 2, 2012 from 6-9pm for the opening receiption of A Gospel According to Matthew: LGBTQ History in Watercolor by San Francisco artist, Matthew R. Burns. At 8pm an informal artist-led talk will commence with the awarding of two commemorative exhibit books. As Burns describes his series, “These paintings were born from a desire on my part to use color and figures to create an emotional exchange. We know AIDS is a pandemic and we know that hate crimes and gay marriage infiltrate our current media and consciousness, but we start seeing people as statistics and referendums. I want to take the viewer back to seeing people as human. If anything this series connects humanity with shared biographies. None of us are unchallenged, but we seem to find it necessary to remove ourselves from others place in history. This series is equally about you and me, regardless of whom we may share our sanctuary or sleep.” Matthew R. Burns resides in San Francisco and received his MFA from the Academy Art University, San Francisco in 2012. As Show & Tell approaches its one-year anniversary it continues to showcase local designers, cause driven brands, and provide a safe gathering space for the Oakland community. This event is free and open to the public.
