Summer is a time for temperature changes, relaxation and flowers. It’s also a time to slip into an activity we’ve postponed in order to get ready for the rest of our life … or maybe just to get started learning something that will add promotional value as an employee: college credit.
Saturday and Sunday at Jamestown College, volunteers attending the annual Relay for Life Cancer drive will fill the track and field as 24 teams of cancer fighters gather to remember those who passed and those who still fight to survive the big “C.”
Today at 3 p.m. the doors to Jamestown College’s Reiland Fine Arts Center will open for The Taste of Home Cooking School, ticket-holders to browse booths offering lifestyle and food vendors. The cooking demonstrations start at 7 p.m.
For all Harry Potter fans (count me in) just imagine how it would feel to be in the Great Hall at Hogwarts, the sorting place for newcomers to the school of wizardry. Films are made every day, and what sets the Harry Potter series apart from many modern-day movies are the physical, everyday locations where the scenes were shot. Most of the places where the impactful shots were filmed, the “sorting hat scene” or the “sorcerer-stone scene,” etc., do exist. Not everything is computer-produced. Some things, including some strange and playful locations, are as real as your own home.
Saturday afternoon, at the Jamestown Civic Center, Jamestown College will give bachelor’s degrees in the arts and sciences to 160 students. Anyone growing up here knows the black and orange colors fly when homecoming occurs in October, and when seniors collect their degrees during Mother’s Day weekend.
It’s coffee, cocoa or tea, milk, soda or a fruit-flavored sugary drink … or something with a little or a lot of alcohol. We drink to wash it down, to perk it up, to cool it off, to warm it up or to forget it altogether.
Jamestown College senior art majors Amber Orizotti and Scarlett Bourg will have their senior art exhibits in the gallery of the Reiland Fine Arts Center. Between their individual shows, the Spring All Students Art Show went up on Monday.
Jamestown College will share an evening of “wild” fun and fine food during its 27th annual Dine and Bid gala April 20 at the Larson Center on campus. The public is invited and tickets are available at $75 each and may be purchased online at http://alumni.jc.edu/event/dinebid2013 or by calling the college at 252-3467, ext. 5512.
We who adhere to westernized culture look at a broken object as something to toss out. Those who have experienced Eastern cultures may have a different outlook. An art display currently showing work at James-town College’s Reiland fine Arts Center shows some ideas that might be of interest to anyone with broken art or a broken heart.
A great advantage in being part of a college community is communication. Several colleagues regularly send info they find about art and forward the sites. I’m so thankful, because as an artist and one trying to fill a 24-hour day with about 30, it’s rare that I can peruse the Web for new or education-relevant art info.
Tea drinking in North America is a hot or cold, black or orange pekoe and usually sweetened with sugar and seasoned with lemon or cream. It’s either a tall glass with ice cubes in summer or a mug or tea cup in winter with a saucer and tea bags.
Josh Berg’s chair and plate were left empty Thursday as his classmates memorialized him during their Medieval feast. Black velvet armbands were obvious as Rhys Harries spoke about his classmate’s enthusiasm for life.
It was at his and several other Jamestown College seniors’ request that I offered the East-West art history class this semester. I said four years ago, never again, but agreed with their requests, thinking this time, with their help, it would be far simpler.
