Teaming up for the library -- BAC art book drive

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 5:29PM

BAC launches a book drive for a collection on art and architecture. Bainbridge Art and Crafts is opening a new chapter. In fact, the gallery is opening a whole new collection of books. BAC will partner with the Bainbridge Library to fill shelves with books on art, architecture and design for a new collection. “The library itself doesn’t raise specific moneys for specific collections, they raise money for general use,” BAC director Susan Jackson said. “So we can raise money for architecture, art and design books, which is our real interest. So we get the community partnership end, which I think is a really good thing for the gallery – to not be so insular.”

HHHS moves forward to meet needs

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 5:29PM

Action teams tout successes, look for more service providers. The first step to meeting unmet community needs can be as simple as Bainbridge being less insular. So say members of the city’s Health, Housing and Human Services Council, charged with enhancing the island’s array of social services. “One piece we’re very proud of is we brought in people from outside the community, people on and off the island who were really needed to come up with solutions,” said Elaine VonRosenstiel, co-chair of the HHHS steering committee. “It sent a signal to off-island agencies that they are welcome – they haven’t always gotten that message – to work with a broader community to solve problems.”

[6/28/2003] A park meadow becomes a gallery for a Sunday opening. Shirley Weibe lopes onto the meadow where, in less than a week, she must build a sculpture. The artist has driven straight through from Vancouver, B.C., but with just six days until the opening of Bainbridge Island Arts and Humanities Council’s temporary sculpture exhibit, she wastes no time. Weibe loads up a cart she has brought with tools and wheels it to the Blakely Harbor Park site where she will weave an aluminum lath sculpture resembling an overturned canoe.

Give to the Bainbridge Foundation

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 5:29PM

How’s this for “fall color”? The appearance last week of the Big Red Envelope – a hue matched in brilliance by only the leaves on local trees – heralds the return of October, and the advent of the Bainbridge Foundation’s annual One Call For All drive. We’re always glad to give an endorsement to the venerable One Call drive, through which islanders can support a panoply of nonprofit groups (this year, more than 70) serving all segments of our island community.

Where a mind goes, a body follows

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 5:29PM

Sabine Price works to unlock the mysteries of hypnotism. Erase the popular notion of hypotism, formed by Hollywood images of a pocket-watch swinging while an off-camera voice insinuates, “You are getting ver rry sleeeepy...” The connotations of a dubious power (male) exerted over a passive subject (female) is far from the truth of clinical hypnotherapy, an art elevated with new brain research to the status of science.

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 5:28PM

Operations spending would be up, overall spending down. An unprecedented attempt to identify “core services” informs the city’s draft budget for 2005.

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 5:28PM

A decade ago, he chronicled life on Bainbridge for listeners of NPR. Former islander Andrew Ward was researching a novel about slavery in Tennessee, when he more or less backed into the African American history that would shape much of his nonfiction writing. “The first day (of research) I looked at interviews with former slaves in the 1920s, and one claimed to have been a cousin of Abraham Lincoln,” said Ward, who has been a contributing editor for Atlantic Monthly, a commentator for NPR’s All Things Considered and a columnist for the Washington Post “I became interested in his story.”

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 5:28PM

Mixed-media drawings are crafted of layered colors, materials. It’s been a year and a half since Anthea Groves’ last solo show, and this artist has spent the intervening months becoming even more fluent in the visual language that is her own. “I got a lot of momentum from the last show,” Groves said. “My grasp on my ideas is better than I’ve ever had, and that’s the way it should be. I’ve spent a lot of time focusing on my work.”

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 5:28PM

Women build up their ‘stash.’ A “stash” brings to mind a secreted, coveted item in a small quantity – unless you’re talking about a stash of yarn. To knitters, the term means a collection of yarn leftover from projects, or that was so enticingly beautiful that it had to be bought even without a project in mind.

Toward a new ‘Politics of Hope’

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 5:28PM

Legislative veteran Donna Zajonc sees a united future. For those who believe the American political system has broken down, Donna Zajonc agrees – but she also sees it as a springboard to a brighter future. “I think we’re on the verge of the next (political) evolutionary leap,” Zajonc said, comparing it with change as dramatic as the 1960s. The same way a dying person passes through stages from denial to final acceptance, Zajonc sees current divisiveness and apathy as a stage in political development, with the next being “The Politics of Hope,” the name of her recently published book.
