Lesson | 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.

A smart and concise guide to staying together that draws on scientific findings, expert advice, and years in the marital trenches to explain why marriage is better for your health, your finances, your kids, and your happiness Like you, probably, Belinda Luscombe would rather have had her eyes put out than read a book about marriage; they all seemed full of advice that was obvious, useless, or bad. Plus they were boring.

Opening Reception | Photography After Stonewall: Examining the Influence of the Stonewall Riots on Creative Photography.


A special exhibition to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and the start of the gay liberation movement. The exhibited work will demonstrate how the uprising made possible a type of imagery that earlier generations had to suppress. Photography After Stonewall highlights the work of twenty-three living artists, all of whom have developed a creative approach to LGBTQ issues. The themes include Body/Gender/Sexuality, Home, Family, Gays in the Military, AIDS, Fetish, Pulp and Fantasy. Fifty years ago, much of this would have been unthinkable. Among its many accomplishments, the Stonewall Riots opened up a new area for artistic expression. Events are being held around the nation to commemorate this important milestone. This exhibition focuses entirely on creative photography. The participating photographers are Ronaldo Aguiar, Berena Alvarez, James Bidgood, Vincent Cianni, Joyce Culver, John Paul Evans, Sunil Gupta, David Hilliard, Robert Kalman, Rivka S. Katvan, David Lebe, Patrick McNabb, Slava Mogutin, Barbara Nitke, Lissa Rivera, Jeff Sheng, Pacifico Silano, Sage Sohier, Sam Stoich, Bill Travis, Arthur Tress, Annie Tritt, and Sophia Wallace.

Author Reading | This Land Is Our Land: An Impassioned Defense Of Global Immigration


Drawing on his own experience of immigrating from India to Britain as a child, and then to America as an adult, Pulitzer Prize finalist Suketu Mehta argues that the West isn’t being destroyed by immigrants, but by its fear of them. In This Land Is Our Land, Mehta cites factors from climate change to civil strife that have made borders around the world become more porous. With more people on the move than ever before, he makes a necessary and timely argument for the ways in which immigrants enable communities and countries to flourish, despite the backlash they inevitably face from leaders and unwelcoming citizens. Now based in New York where he is a professor of journalism at New York University, Mehta will speak about his personal experience of immigration, and those of the the many other people whose stories shaped the writing of his book. He will be joined in conversation by the artist and writer Molly Crabapple.

Author Reading | Indecent Advances: A Hidden History of True Crime and Prejudice Before Stonewall


A skillful hybrid of true crime and social history that examines the relationship between the media and popular culture in the portrayal of crimes against gay men in the decades before Stonewall. Stories of murder have never been just about killers and victims. Instead, crime stories take the shape of their times and reflect cultural notions and prejudices. In his first book, Indecent Advances, James Polchin recovers and recounts queer stories from the crime pages—often lurid and euphemistic—that reveal the hidden history of violence against gay men. Published in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall uprising on June 28, 1969, James Polchin's Indecent Advances investigates how queer men navigated a society that criminalized them and displayed little compassion for the violence they endured. Polchin and Eric Marcus (host of Making Gay History) will discuss this revelatory and meticulously researched book, and its "forgotten" chapter of queer history.

Author Reading | Mind Beyond Brain: Buddhism Science, and the Paranormal


Among the most profound questions we confront are the nature of what and who we are as conscious beings, and how the human mind relates to the rest of what we consider reality. For millennia, philosophers, scientists, and religious thinkers have attempted answers, perhaps none more meaningful today than those offered by neuroscience and by Buddhism. The encounter between these two worldviews has spurred ongoing conversations about what science and Buddhism can teach each other about mind and reality. In Mind Beyond Brain, the neuroscientist David E. Presti, with the assistance of other distinguished researchers, explores how evidence for anomalous phenomena--such as near-death experiences, apparent memories of past lives, apparitions, experiences associated with death, and other so-called psi or paranormal phenomena, including telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition--can influence the Buddhism-science conversation.

Author Reading | The End of Loneliness: Award-Winning Novel


German author Benedict Wells's novel is a kaleidoscopic family saga told through the fractured lives of the three siblings who are estranged as adults but united by a tragic event that has haunted them since childhood. Combining a certain German melancholy with the page-turning narrative drive of Wells’s American literary influences like John Irving and Michael Chabon, the book spent more than a year and a half on the Spiegel bestseller list and was awarded the 2016 European Union Prize for Literature.

Author Reading | The Lost Letters of William Woolf: Postal Detective


Inside the walls of the Dead Letters Depot, letter detectives work to solve mysteries. They study missing zip codes, illegible handwriting, rain-smudged ink, lost address labels, torn packages, forgotten street names—all the many twists of fate behind missed birthdays, broken hearts, unheard confessions, pointless accusations, unpaid bills, unanswered prayers. Their mission is to unite lost mail with its intended recipients. But when letters arrive addressed simply to “My Great Love,” longtime letter detective William Woolf faces his greatest mystery to date.
