Featured Presentation

Presenter_bw_img_0950

Amy Anderson

Legal Studies Professor in Williamsburg

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.

APPLAUD THIS!

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.

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.

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.

A Theory on Doodling

"I never felt that I could be an artist, but somehow doodling opened the door for me. It was a way to do art without expectations, and from there I gave myself permission to belong in the category of artist. That was freedom for me."In A Theory on Doodling from Williamsburg Vol. 12, Pam Woodson finds herself drawn to doodling in a couple of very specific situations.
