Join us on November 7, for our final Musical Medley performance by Jameson Kidder. 5:30pm Gallery A3, 28 Amity St. 6:30pm The Jones Library, in the Atrium, 43 Amity St. Jameson is an indie folk singer-songwriter and visual artist. His rhythmic acoustic guitar style is contrasted by a wistful, haunting voice and poetic sensibility. Jameson grew up in an artistic family and began performing with his father’s folk rock quartet as a percussionist at age 11. Influenced by his father’s music, he taught himself to sing and play guitar, eventually turning to songwriting. Influences include Nick Drake, Robin Pecknold, Tallest Man on Earth, Paul Simon and Aldous Harding. (Amherst Arts Night Plus Musical Medley performances are supported in part by a grant from the Amherst Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.)

  3. Opening Reception for Planted: Photography by Bernie Kubiak

    November 7, 2019, 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Town Hall

    Join us on Thursday, November 7, 5-8pm, during Amherst Arts Night Plus, for the opening reception of our new exhibit, Planted: Photography by Bernie Kubiak. Bernie explains his inspiration. As a photographer I want to both tell and provoke stories. There’s a story I want to communicate and there’s the one, often very different, that the viewer brings to mind when looking at the photograph. Portraying the landscape has occupied artists since the 19th century. Landscape is not simply about where but what the place represents and the thoughts and emotions it evokes. Mt Pollux became one of my regular visits over the last several years, in part a response to my challenge to make photographs within two miles of my house and in part because the old trees seemed to stand against time and embody what I later came to understand as wabi-sabi. The old orchard there prompted me to photograph others. These are not grand vistas but small places that have a story to tell in the trees there.

  5. Landscape and Infrastructure: Re-imagining the Pastoral Paradigm for the 21st Century Book Release with author Meg Vickery

    November 7, 2019, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ Hitchcock Center for the Environment

    In her new book local author and lecturer of the History of Art and Architecture Meg Vickery traces the roots and uncovers the significance of the productive activities and elements of pastoral traditions in art and designed landscapes, clearly documenting the persistent and sometimes difficult relationship of aesthetics and production. With rising demand for clean energy, clean water, and locally-grown food, this study offers a historical perspective on how such systems can be integrated into our suburban and urban areas. Vestigial elements of the pastoral tradition have long held aesthetic sway in our suburbs, cities and national parks, both in Britain and America. Now, as new energy- and water-related projects encroach on these spaces, remnants of the pastoral play a crucial role in convincing neighborhood residents, municipal leaders, and energy companies or water authorities of the benefits of a neighboring infrastructure.

  6. Tales from the Home of the World's Worst Weather

    November 7, 2019, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ Woodbury Room

    Join Mount Washington Observatory's Will Broussard for an investigation into the unique life and work of weather observers stationed at the observatory year-round. We will explore how the mountain's weather works and what it can tell us about New England’s own weather patterns. This program will include interactive demonstrations, weather instruments, stunning photography, and video footage from the summit. Through the years, the hardy men and women of the Observatory have experienced white-out blizzards, stunning 110-mile vistas, and everything in between. They have survived a 231mph wind gust, endless days of disorienting fog, and snow drifts more than 20 feet tall. They have amassed one of North America's longest continuous climate records, and developed an intimate understanding of the place known as the "Home of the World's Worst Weather." This exciting program is appropriate for adults and children alike.
