House Concert featuring musician Dave Beegle

House Concert featuring musician Dave Beegle

 

 

 

Join host Franklin Taggart and artists Lorri Acott and Adam Schultz on Thursday, October 14 at 6:30pm for a very special off-site house concert with musician Dave Beegle to celebrate the Beauty and the Beast exhibition in the Loveland studio of the artists.

Sure, Dave Beegle plays guitar. In fact he plays guitar so well that peers such as Phil Keaggy calls him “one of the most creative and accomplished guitarists I’ve met.” Progression Magazine labeled Beegle “a guitarist’s guitar player” and HM Magazine simply called him “just phenomenal.” But Beegle is not “just” a guitarist. He is also a composer, a producer, a teacher and a musical activist remaining on the cutting edge of contemporary music. Hailing from the robust state of Colorado, Beegle makes an inspired sound that delights music fans willing to look beyond the fickle trends of pop. Beegle continues to play in the Colorado region as well as touring throughout several regions of the US.

“Like Jimmy Page, Brian May and Tom Scholtz, Dave Beegle is a one-man guitar army. A very clever player.”
…GUITAR MAGAZINE

Date: Thursday, October 14

Time: 6:30pm concert starts (doors open at 6:00pm)

Location: The studio of Lorri Acott and Adam Schultz- 1395 S Garfield Ave, LOVELAND, CO

Beasts and Animals in Poetry

Beasts and Animals in Poetry

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED 

Poetry has a long tradition of depicting beasts, both real and imagined. From Beowolf to Sylvia Plath, the depiction of beasts and animals in poetry often delves into deeper truths or the darker side of our humanity.  Drawing on the current exhibit, “Beauty and the Beast,” this workshop with poet Jodie Hollander, will examine questions of self as seen through the idea of the animal. Using celebrated examples of both traditional and contemporary poetry, we’ll also discuss techniques such as metaphor, imagery, sound and allusion as well as introducing basic techniques for creating musicality within a poem. No experience necessary.

Jodie Hollander, originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was raised in a family of classical musicians. She studied poetry in England, and her poems have appeared in journals such as The Poetry Review, The Yale Review, PN Review, The Dark Horse, The New Criterion, The Rialto, Verse Daily, The Best Australian Poems of 2011, and The Best Australian Poems of 2015.

She is the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship in South Africa, a National Endowment for the Humanities Grant in Italy, a Hawthornden Fellowship in Scotland, and attended the MacDowell Colony in 2015.  Her debut publication, The Humane Society, was released with Tall-Lighthouse (London) in 2012, and her full-length collection, My Dark Horses, is published with Liverpool University Press (Pavilion Poetry). She currently lives in Fort Collins, Colorado.

How the Aloha Shirt Conquered the World

Join us for a talk on the Aloha shirt woven with Hawaiian history by Martha Denney and Lloyd Walker.

Martha Denney is Director Emerita of International Education at Colorado State University. Since her retirement she has been able to indulge her love of textiles and travel.  Lloyd Walker retired from Civil Engineering at CSU after 30 years and became a dedicated student of history.  In 1986 they began traveling to Hawaii and in 2013 they purchased a home on the Big Island so they could spend more time learning about the Islands.  Martha curated an exhibit on Hawaii with Molly Eckman at the Global Village Museum that featured Hawaiian shirts as a way to tell the Hawaii’s story.  Lloyd explains the history that led to Hawaii’s role in transforming how people  all over the world dress. It is a fun and unexpected story. If registering on Wednesday, August 11, you can buy tickets before the event or call the museum but the online portal closes at 11:55pm on August 10th.
