Celebration of the Species-- Feathers : Form and Function with Chris Maynard @ Olympia Library

Wed, 04/29/2015 - 7:30pm - 8:45pm
As part of Celebration of the Species, a series of library programs honoring Olympia's Procession of the Species, we will have local artist and author Chris Maynard at the Olympia Timberland Library to talk about his art and his new book Feathers : Form and Function on Wednesday, April 29 at 7:30 p.m.
Feathers : Form and Function is a gorgeously crafted book, written and designed to share new ways of seeing the natural world - through the eyes of an artist, biologist, philosopher, and, of course, through the eyes of a bird.
This program will be held after hours and no other library services will be available. All Timberland Library programs are free and open to the public.

The Olympia Timberland Library is located at 313 8th Avenue SE. For more information, contact the library at (360) 352-0595.

Artstalk with Sarah Utter @ the Olympia Library

Wed, 04/22/2015 - 7:30pm - 8:45pm
In honor of ArtsWalk, we will have an ArtsTalk with local celebrity, Sarah Utter at the library on Wednesday, April 22nd at 7:30 p.m.
Sarah Utter is an Olympia-raised artist and musician who blends her love of the natural world with vibrant color and pattern. Painting and printmaking are her predominant mediums, but she is also well known for her poster and graphic design work; Sarah's 'Reading is Sexy' stickers, shirts, buttons and more can be found distributed worldwide.
Sarah's presentation will revolve around her experience of dropping out of the regular work week and "winging it" with painting and graphic design.

All Timberland Regional Library programs are free and open to the public.

Thierry de Duve at Evergreen

Mon, 01/26/2015 - 5:30pm - 7:30pm
From today's inbox:
This year’s occupant of Evergreen's Daniel J. Evans Chair in Liberal Arts is Thierry de Duve, a historian and philosopher of art. He is Professor Emeritus from the University of Lille 3, and was Kirk Varnedoe Visiting Professor at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, for the fall semester of 2013. His English publications include Pictorial Nominalism(1991), Kant after Duchamp (1996), Clement Greenberg Between the Lines (1996, 2010), Look—100 Years of Contemporary Art (2001), and Sewn In the Sweatshops of Marx: Beuys, Warhol, Klein, Duchamp (2012). Recently, he finished a book of essays on aesthetics, forthcoming from the University of Chicago Press.
Thierry will be at Evergreen weeks 3, 4 and 5. He's scheduled to deliver two public talks on campus and one at the Seattle Art Museum. He will also be teaching in the programs, It’s About Time (faculty Greg Mullins, Shaw Osha and Trevor Speller) and Structures and Strictures: Fiction, Mathematics and Philosophy (faculty Kathleen Eamon, Steven Hendricks, Toshitami Matsumoto and Brian Walter). These talks will be based on the six articles he published in Art Forum last year. 
At Evergreen, he will give two public talks, one on Monday, 1/26 from 5:30-7:30 pm as part of the Critical and Cultural Theory series and a second on Wednesday, 2/4 from 11:30-1:00 pm as part of the Art Lecture Series (we expect this to be quite full). 
In Seattle, Thierry will be giving a lecture at SAM on Thursday, 1/22.
