The Art of Storytelling Through Very Fine Folk Art

April 3 @ 6:00 pm - April 24 @ 9:00 pm
Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre, 139 Water Street
ST. Andrews, New Brunswick E5B 1A7 Canada
+ Google Map

Take a course this Spring and learn about the magic, fun and stories associated with folk art and how to express them in a work of art. Learn to tell a story in a painting – then tell the story. Beginners to experts – this is a different way of thinking and musing. Course paintings will be acrylic on canvas. Great drawing skills are not necessary but a sense of humour is. This is not your typical folk art. Registration Deadline: March 3, 2018

The EAC’s Children’s Theater Workhop staged “The Bubbles, the Beatles, and the BFG” in 2015 and “The Curse of the Mona Lisa” in 2017, receiving in return bouquets of roses, ovations and looks of pained confusion from its adult audiences. No matter! We forge ahead into the unknown, because we are aware that theater is always about risk and certainly never for the faint of heart. A new season is currently underway. All those interested in acting, directing, set design, costume, or backstage roles are urged to join us Saturdays from 10-11:30 am (snacks provided!) at the EAC. Tarah Waters and Jon Calame will co-direct the upcoming project, which is yet to be named. Please do come bask in the glory of underground Bohemian theater with us.

Sunday Afternoons at EAC Season Finale: Mark DeVoto on Beethoven’s ‘Fidelio’

April 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Eastport Arts Center (EAC), 36 Washington Street
Eastport, ME 04631 United States
+ Google Map

The Sunday Afternoons at the EAC series, a winter offering of informal and interactive programs every Sunday at 3 pm at Eastport Arts Center, will conclude on April 22 with an illustrated talk about Beethoven’s Fidelio by Mark DeVoto, a retired professor of music from Tufts University. DeVoto’s lecture will consider Fidelio as an example of mighty musical design and compelling human drama. He notes: “Fidelio is the only opera that Beethoven composed; it took him years to get it right the way he wanted. It's a bold statement about human freedom from oppression as well as great music. It has never been as popular as many more famous but less weighty operas, but it still holds the stage today; musicians love it because the music is intellectually challenging as well as brilliantly melodic and sonically strong; singers are still scared of it because the principal roles are so difficult; audiences hold it in high regard when it's well performed.”

The St. Andrews Film Society Presents: This Changes Everything

April 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
W.C. O’Neill Arena Theatre, St. Andrews, ME United States + Google Map

What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we'll ever get to build a better world? Filmed over 211 days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. The film presents seven portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana's Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Naomi Klein's narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds up to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better. (Canada., 89 min., 2015, rated PG).

Calais Bookshop selects “Barkskins” By Annie Proulx for its April 25th Reading Group

"In the late seventeenth century, two penniless young Frenchmen, Rene Sel and Charles Duquet, arrive in Canada, then known as New France. Bound to a feudal lord for three years in exchange for land, they become woodcutters – barkskins. Sel, suffering extraordinary hardship in the forest he is charged with clearing, is forced to marry a Mi'kmaw woman. Duquet, crafter and ruthless, runs away, becomes a fur trader, then sets up a timber business. Proulx tells the stories of their descendants over three hundred years – their travels across North America, to Europe, China and New Zealand under stunningly brutal conditions – the revenge of rivals, accidents, pestilence, Indian attacks and cultural annihilation. "Barkskins is an extraordinary marriage of history and imagination from one of America's most formidable novelists," according to the book cover.
