Film:To Spring from the Hand: the Life and Work of Paulus Berensohn
Sunday, September 13, 2015 - 7:00 pm

Film:To Spring from the Hand: the Life and Work of Paulus Berensohn

Arthur Bell Auditorium

This film examines the life and philosophy of Paulus Berensohn, an acclaimed artist who, for the last 40 years, has chosen not to sell his work.


"Do something. Start with pleasure. Make a list of all the things that are pleasurable in your life and then make an art form out of one of them. And if you're courageous, make a list of all the things that are difficult in your life and make an art form out of one of them."

Infinite words of wisdom such as these are shared throughout the film by the 80-year-old Berensohn, a man as celebrated for his variable artistic talents as he should be for his holistic approach to life.
Discovering a love of dance as a young boy growing up in New York, Berensohn studied at Juilliard and performed with the likes of Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham in the 1950s. Early into his dance career, however, Berensohn came across the studio of renowned potter Karen Karnes while visiting the Gate Hill Cooperative, a haven for artists in Stony Point, New York. Mesmerized by watching Karnes at the wheel, this was Berensohn's "bridge from dance to clay." Not long after taking up ceramics, he published the acclaimed book Finding One's Way with Clay, wherein he expounds on his pinched pottery method. Forty years later, the text remains a must-read for ceramic students. By revisiting these and other pivotal moments in Berensohn's life, including his struggles with dyslexia and depression, To Spring From the Hand offers viewers a charmingly candid insight to an anomalous life.


Tickets are $8.00 for general admission and $6.00 members of The Harwood Museum of Art.

Paseo 2015 Artists talk: Sabrina Barrios

Arthur Bell Auditorium

How to Build a Portal for a Hidden Dimension

Artists description:  The relationship between the self and the collective consciousness, our perception of reality and the gaps in history–that indicate we know very little about the world around us–are recurrent subjects in my work. Manifested into 3D drawings (geometric structures), these subjects confront the viewer by allowing them to participate and create their paths within the work. They can choose to go left, right or turn back. Quantum mechanics investigates the possibility that the decisions not made in this universe happened in a parallel one, and my installations represent visually the exact moment these decisions are being made.

An Evening with Living Legend; Norman Kennedy
Friday, October 2, 2015 - 6:30 pm

An Evening with Living Legend; Norman Kennedy

Arthur Bell Auditorium

Please Join the Harwood Museum of Art and the Mountain Valley Wool Association in welcoming Scottish-born Weaver, Singer, and Master Storyteller and Shanachie (Gaelic for tradition bearer);   Norman Kennedy


The evening will commence with a participatory demonstration of the tradition of waulking of the cloth. Waulking is the time-honored process of hand finishing or ‘fulling’ woolen cloth in the traditional way. Surviving through the ages in Scotland, the method consists of a group of people seated around a large table lifting, pounding and passing a wetted woven cloth while keeping time by singing traditional Gaelic Waulkings songs. This is still one of the most effective ways to wet-finish handwoven woolens and serves the very practical purpose of making the resulting cloth tight and strong.

For the final part of the evening, Norman sings traditional Scottish folk ballads, unaccompanied, which transports the listener to the family hearth of yesteryear. He learned his songs naturally by growing up around some of the great Scottish singers of the last generation. He has a wide repertoire of songs learned directly from them without the facility of tapes and record, learning them, not because he wanted to be a folk singer, but because even as a boy he was drawn to the music. An evening with Norman is an event to be cherished.


Tickets are $25 for general public and $20.00 for Museum Alliance members.

Jazz: Warren Vaché
Friday, October 9, 2015 - 7:00 pm on Friday

Jazz: Warren Vaché

Arthur Bell Auditorium

Vaché is a supremely accomplished, versatile and rare performer. He has been astounding audiences worldwide for decades with his superb cornet, trumpet and flugelhorn stylings. Through live performances and recordings, along with stage, screen, radio and television appearances, Warren conveys incredible warmth through his burnished tone and intelligent improvisations.
Coupling a beautiful tone with a chance-taking style, Warren utilizes the complete range of the jazz vocabulary. His influences include: Louis Armstrong, Ruby Braff, "Pee Wee" Erwin ( with whom he studied for many years ), Roy Eldridge, Bobby Hackett, Clifford Brown, Blue Mitchell, and Billy Butterfield - from this group of extraordinary musicians, among others, Mr. Vaché has coalesced his own inimitable style that defies categorization. Pianist and composer Jim McNeely was heard to say: "Every chorus he plays is like a lesson in the history of the trumpet."
With a style that has been described as "lyrical," 'daring," "warm," and "exciting," Warren Vaché has a delightful way of engaging and audience; leaving them enthralled with the beauty and joy of his playing, and the warmth of his vocals.
