Workshop | Chinese Traditional Painting


Learn the techniques of Chinese Traditional Painting! Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world. Painting in the traditional style is known today in Chinese as guóhuà, meaning "national" or "native painting", as opposed to Western styles of art which became popular in China in the 20th century. Traditional painting involves essentially the same techniques as calligraphy and is done with a brush dipped in black ink or coloured pigments; oils are not used. As with calligraphy, the most popular materials on which paintings are made are paper and silk. The finished work can be mounted on scrolls, such as hanging scrolls or handscrolls. Traditional painting can also be done on album sheets, walls, lacquerware, folding screens, and other media. Please bring your own brushes; paper and ink will be provided.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Gallery Talk | Made in New York City: The Business of Folk Art: Exhibition Tour


Folk art has flourished in the heart of New York City since the eighteenth century, contrary to popular belief that it was a rural genre that reflected local tastes, traditions, and needs. Around 100 works of art by self-taught artists tell the story about New York City as the center of America’s financial and commercial world from two perspectives simultaneously: “The Art of Business” portrays the people and places that were part of the city’s thrumming commercial life, and “The Business of Art” highlights the diverse mediums and formats used by the artists, artisans, and manufacturers. This tour of the exhibition is conducted by museum gallery guides.

Author Reading | H.G. Adler: A 20th-Century Life for the 21st Century


:H.G. Adler (1910-1988) was a survivor of Theresienstadt, Auschwitz who later published two dozen books of history, fiction, poetry, sociology, and religion, all of which were dedicated to honoring the memory of those lost in the Holocaust. However, in his time he remained largely unknown, and it is only in the 21st century that his works have gained the audience and resonance they deserve. Author Peter Filkin's authorized biography will explore the importance of Adler's life and writing for how it speaks to the overreach of technology, government, and social controls, as well as the necessity of maintaining human dignity in the face of systemic oppression in our day.

Author Reading | Leaving Richards Valley: Graphic Novel

Discussion | The American Bystander: The Last Great Print Humor Magazine?


Editor and publisher Michael Gerber and a panel of contributing cartoonists and writers discuss The American Bystander and its place in the tradition of print humor magazines in the US and internationally. Michael Gerber has been called “the world’s only expert on print humor magazines,” and launched The American Bystander in October 2015. After beginning his career as a magazine consultant for places like Spy and The National Lampoon, he spent the 90s writing humor for every major American venue, from The New Yorker to NPR to Saturday Night Live. In 2002, he stared down Warner Bros to publish the first Harry Potter parody, Barry Trotter and the Unauthorized Parody; this book became one of the biggest-selling parodies in history, causing J.K. Rowling to sprinkle shout-outs throughout her series.
