March's Featured Artist - Micah BlackLight

FROM TEXTILE TO TOME…A Multi-Media Installation Experience by Micah BlackLight

Join us for a uniquely intriguing experience: From Textile to Tome. Embark upon a visual pilgrimage from intricately worked fabric to textured board to eventual paper in what Micah BlackLight refers to as the first fully embodied version of an ‘Infinity Book’. Viewers will be treated to a multi-media installation beginning with a couture garment equipped with folding sections that become other than a garment’s pieces as they reveal themselves to be pages of an enigmatic and potentially never-ending book printed with cryptic designs, fantastic beings from other realms, and potential messages from those self-same realities.

Make a Ukrainian ‘Vinok’ (Floral Head Piece)
With Luda Sokol

In this class, Luda Sokol will guide participants through the process of creating a traditional “Vinok” headpiece.

The custom of weaving headpieces for adornment dates to pagan times, having a sacred significance in the rites of the spring cycle and Kupala Night festivities. Gradually, the headpiece transformed into a symbol of adoration, embodying the spirit of Mother Earth.

In Ukraine, floral head wreaths carried solar symbolism, and a girl wearing a Vinok was associated with the eastern sun. It also symbolized glory, victory, holiness, happiness, success, opportunity, peace, the sun, and power. The selection, combination of colors, and arrangement of ribbons in the headpiece are particularly interesting. Adorning the head of a young girl with flowers and ribbons of 12 different colors, each serving as both a healer and a protector, safeguarded her hair from evil eyes. Ribbons were chosen based on the length of the girl’s hair, with each ribbon slightly longer than the braid to hide it amid the vibrant array of colors.

Date: Saturday, May 11th, 2024, 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Cost: $35 Members / $40 Non-Members, all materials included. Credit card payments add 4%.
