NEXT EVENT VOL 12

I just booked the Library Theater, which is a great venue for PechaKucha, with the big screen and the comfortable chairs. This will be smack dab in the middle of the Virginia Arts Festival Williamsburg weekend and during our new Williamsburg Spring Arts Festival.

Presenters should get in touch soon. I will need to limit this event to 10 total.

BY DALE WEISS
@ VOL 11 ON MAR 07, 2015

No Boobs, No Problem!

BY LULÚ DE PANBEHCHI
@ VOL 11 ON MAR 07, 2015

This presentation is a continuum of some of Lulu De Panbehchi's previous PK talks. We have seen her journey through chemotherapy as interpreted through her photography, her outlooks on life and her work at the time, and now her perspective on life after breast cancer. One thing is obvious, Lulu is a positive spirit.

Martin Mathes is lobbying you to find your hobby, whatever it might be. After retirement, he tried a of hobbies and settled on stained glass. Our venue was perfect for his presentation as it featured some of his stained glass in the windows.

Macy's Art

BY PAULA ALASAD ASBELL
@ VOL 11 ON MAR 07, 2015

Paula Asbell has done several PK's. When the announcement went out for our next PKN, Paula's 9 year old daughter, Macy, wanted to give it a try. Here she shows us how she is using art and drawings to compensate for her dyslexia in creative ways, and to boost her confidence in the world.

Amaryllis

BY ROBERT OPPECKER
@ VOL 11 ON MAR 07, 2015

Robert Oppecker thought he was just recording the process of his wife's amaryllis as it grew and bloomed. However, as he looked at the photos he was taking, and noticed the background as well, the series became a visual metaphor for connections to the past, to family, and to what is to become.

The "F" Word

BY TIRZA SHELTON
@ VOL 11 ON MAR 07, 2015

We know what most of you are thinking, but there's another four letter word that begins with "F". Tirza Shelton guides us through what that word entails through our lives and inspires the possibilities if we don't succumb to it.

Art Drop Day

BY DALE WEISS
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 20, 2014

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.

The Heavens Declare

BY ANDREW CRONAN
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 20, 2014

If you want an idea of the vastness of the universe, a good scale of reference is helpfull. Andrew Cronan uses Williamsburg's main avenue, Duke of Gloucester Street, to give some relative scale to our solar system, but then takes us to the far reaches of our galaxy, and beyond. For Andy, when he looks at those marvels beyond, it is easy to see the presence of God.

The Naked Truth

If we can strip to our true essence, we can embrace our own story.
Using images of painted bodies, and a talk laced with quotes by famous people of wisdom, Tirza Shelton shows us how self-enriching it can be to shed the layers we have all been cloaking our true selves in since Adam and Eve first tasted the fruit of knowledge. In “The Naked Truth” from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 9, find out what is at your core.
