Dale Weiss

Architect, Guernsey Tingle Architects in Williamsburg, Virginia

Dale Weiss had another presentation all ready for Williamsburg's Vol. 10, when this crossed his Facebook feed. There have been sporadic art drops before, but when artist Jake Parker declared the first Tuesday in September as World Art Drop Day, Dale had to get involved. This presentation cronicles the experience, and foretells of the inevitable viral spread of this new annual event.

Inside Outside

BY LYN CROWLEY
@ VOL 13 ON JUN 05, 2015

Lyn Crowley and Pamela Doss threw out an idea to see what would happen. They asked people who they knew were coming to send in an image of either inside or outside and to have their 20 second description prepared. When their image popped up on the screne, they would pop up from the audience. Contributors included Lym Crowley, John Latell, Jane Dixon, Lyn Crowley, Jerry Sowers, Cristy Ansley, Kevin Sweeny, Gloria Williams, Netti Fulton, Brian Willis, Pam Doss, Lyn Crowley, Chloe Doss, Leilani Leo, Diane Meyer, Kay Van Dyke, Pam Doss, Jeff Doss, Steph Brown, and Pam Doss.

Cascading Dreams

BY DOROTHY FAGAN
@ VOL 13 ON JUN 05, 2015

In this presentation we get to see some of the results of Dorothy Fagan's 6 week artist residency in France. And yet, through the PechaKucha process we also get to hear and see Dorothy take us through her inspriations, techniques, processes, details, and materials used to arrive at those finished pieces. The work is stunning. The background is fascinating.

Dale's Sketchbook

BY DALE WEISS
@ VOL 13 ON JUN 05, 2015

"I grabbed the book, turned it upside down, and suddenly it had totally different feel. This was my of eureka moment."

In Dale's Sketchbook from PechaKucha Night Williamsburg, Dale Weiss shares how he was inspired by The Sketchbook Project, a creative endeavor started in Brooklyn, NY, that sends sketchbooks to individuals who fill them with their work, send them back, where they are archived in a traveling library of over 30,000 other sketchbooks. Weiss talks about the year-long creative journey of making his first official sketchbook. Here he shows off some selected pages and describes the process that sketchbook took him through.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on July 13th, 2015.

Through a Glass Lightly

BY AMY ANDERSON
@ VOL 13 ON JUN 05, 2015

Less that 2 weeks before this event Amy Anderson learned that there would be glass art on display in the gallery. She put together this presentation that explores all of the ways we interact with glass - emotionally, spiritually, physically, and many more. I guess all that time spent in libraries (see her previous PK) has paid off.

The Big O

BY TIRZA SHELTON
@ VOL 12 ON MAY 23, 2015

This presentation completes a trilogy for Tirza Shelton. In her first PK she empowered us to take it off and reveal our true selves in The Naked Truth. The we conquered our fears in The F Word. Now that we are naked and fearless we can accomplish the ultimate human experience in The Big O.

Microbial Ecology - Phages and Human Health

BY INIGO WALKER HOWLETT
@ VOL 12 ON MAY 23, 2015

Inigo Walker Howlett came down sick (we suspect a virus) and couldn't make his presentation. As is our tradition in Williamsburg, we roll the slides anyway and ask a volunteer to improv along. This evening we got the husband and wife team of Natalie Miller-Moore and Daniel Moore to impersonate Inigo in a most entertaning way.

Going To My Happy Place: Libraries I Have Loved

BY AMY ANDERSON
@ VOL 12 ON MAY 23, 2015

"This is Google before the Internet."

In Going To My Happy Place: Libraries I Have Loved from WilliamsburgVol. 12, book lover and teacher, Amy Anderson shares her love for libraries and all the activities that surround them. Instilled with a love for reading at a young age, armed with her first library card at age 4, she found herself spending much of her youth lost in the often forgotten magic in libraries. As "Temples of knowledge" she reminds us how rich an experience visiting a library can be.
