Sensual Knowledge: Visiting Performing Artist Series–Tomás Lozano

02:00 pm to 03:30 pm
Mathers Museum of World Cultures
http://www.mathers.indiana.edu

Vocalist, instrumentalist, and composer, Tomás Lozano links his destiny with Spanish poet and 1956 Nobel Prize in Literature, Juan Ramón Jiménez, resulting in stunning artistic purity. The poetry of Jiménez is a conduit to truth and eternity. Lozano channels the poetry into inspired and inspiring songs, and what emerges from this bond is a musical journey through Jimeniano landscapes in which Lozano embraces the transcendent and translates it with stunning beauty. Lozano will present a workshop, using the poetry of Juan Ramón Jiménez, addressing flow in the written word and flow in song, and the particular aesthetic of each genre. The event will be free and open to the public, and is sponsored by Themester 2016: Beauty, an initiative of the IU College of Arts and Sciences.

Visual Mediations

05:00 pm to 05:30 pm
By Hand Gallery
http://www.byhandgallery.com

Tom has always been fascinated by the rich and diverse character of our earth. His goal is to share his perception and visualization of this. Of course he cannot capture reality; rather, as with any artist, he seeks to reveal his perception and understanding of the environment in a way that will stimulate the imagination and emotions of the viewer. The beauty of morning and especially evening light and the resulting shadows are an important component in representing that perception.

Of course, people and their artifacts are an important part of our environment. Indeed, while continuing with his nature photography, his two current projects focus on the interaction between man and environment.

“Nurturing the Heartland” was an 18 month project in which Tom photographed two farmers who were committed to sustainable pasture farming. His goal was to tell, in photographs as well as words, the story of life on a small family farm where the goal was to improve the health of the land as well as the people who eat their food.

The second project, which is ongoing, is “Harvesting Limestone.” It focuses on the workers in the limestone quarries that are part of Indiana Limestone Company.

In this show, Tom focuses on nature photography but include samples from these two projects.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

07:30 pm to 10:00 pm
Wells-Metz Theatre
http://www.indiana.edu/~thtr/productions/2016-17/vanya.shtml

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
By Christopher Durang

Directed by Jonathan Michaelsen

The tranquility of siblings Vanya and Sonia’s uneventful home life is comically disrupted by the return of their movie star sister Masha, who owns the house. She brings with her unwelcome drama, a preening (and usually shirtless) young lover named Spike, and the devastating news of her plans to sell the house. Now all they need to reconcile is Snow White, a voodoo doll, and a play about the destruction of the earth.

Performance dates include October 21, 22, 25 – 28, 2016 at 7:30 pm and October 29 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Thank you Associate Producers and Theatre Circle Members Anne and Jim Bright for supporting this production.

4th Annual Benefit Concert for Amethyst House featuring Greg Brown w/ special guest Bo Ramsey


Buskirk Chumley Theatre
https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe/10103052

With roots in small town Iowa, Greg Brown’s rich folk style is heavily influenced by his origins. His mother played electric guitar, his grandfather was a banjo player and his father was a Pentecostal preacher. His songs are as Midwestern as they come—slow, straightforward and bluesy. Brown’s songwriting has been lauded by many, and his songs have been covered by Willie Nelson, Carlos Santana, Joan Baez, Mary Chapin Carpenter and more. At the personal request of Jeff Bridges, Greg also contributed songs for Bridges’ Oscar-Winning role in the film Crazy Heart. Ultimately, Greg Brown is a storyteller who moves his audiences with his warmth, humor and deeply human musical vision.

For those who might recognize Bo Ramsey by his association with artists like Lucinda Williams, Greg Brown, Kevin Gordon, Pieta Brown, Charlie Parr and others, his new music is the perfect introduction to someone who always listens and plays with his own sonic vision in full motion . So not surprisingly, the list of Ramsey’s accolades is long: including Grammy-Award Winning Guitar Player, 2 Time Grammy Nominated Producer, Iowa Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and Iowa Blues Hall of Famer.
