Light & Shadow / Exhibit

LIGHT & SHADOW                                                SEPTEMBER 2-OCTOBER 5, 2014
Prescott Center for the Arts Gallery, 208 N. Marina St (Entrance on Willis St.) www.pca-az.net (928) 445-3286. Open: Mon., 11am-3pm; Tues.-Sat., 10am-3pm; Sun., Noon-4pm. Shadows are straightforward; cast a light on an opaque object and a shadow is born. Light and shadow visually define objects. Sculptural piles of rubbish become fascinating studies in light and shadow when illuminated from just the right angle. With light, shadows can be manipulated to resemble entirely new shapes in any media. As an example, artists use light and shadow to create contrast, atmosphere or varying tones. Fourth Friday Art Walk on Sept. 26, from 5-7pm.  Also, be sure to stop by the PCA Gallery’s Gift Shop where you will find exceptional jewelry, hand-painted clothing, pottery, baskets, cards, and other one-of-a-kind work in a variety of mediums.

"2014" AIPG and AHS National Conference

The 2014 AHS/AIPG Symposium and National Meeting will be hosted by the Arizona Hydrological Society (AHS) and the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG). AIPG, a national organization, founded in 1963, is the largest association dedicated to promoting geology as a profession. It presently has more than 6,000 members in the U.S. and abroad. The Institute adheres to the principles of professional responsibility and public service and is the only international organization that certifies the competence and ethical conduct of geological scientists in all branches of the science with members employed in industry, government, and academia. Formed in 1985, the Arizona Hydrological Society (AHS) is a nonprofit scientific organization dedicated to advancing hydrology and water resource research, planning, and development. We not only provide an open forum for professionals to exchange information, but we also support public understanding, education, and training in the science and technology of hydrology and water resources. An important part of AHS’s mission is promoting the responsible use, management, and preservation of water resources in the arid southwest. AHS is also dedicated to helping establish standards for the practice of hydrology as a profession. To support these goals, AHS funds meetings, scholarships, grants, symposia, and other outreach and (or) educational activities. The AHS membership consists of hydrologists, hydrogeologists, geologists, geochemists, water quality specialists, chemists, biologists, ecologists, and engineers working for consulting firms, other industries, governmental agencies (Federal, state, county, and municipal), nongovernmental organizations, and educational institutions and organizations. AHS consists of three chapters covering the State of Arizona - Flagstaff, Phoenix, and Tucson. The 2014 symposium will focus on geology and hydrology and will encourage active exchange of ideas between the many disciplines represented. This exchange will take place through plenary sessions, technical sessions, workshops, and an estimated 10-12 field trips to locations in northern Arizona typically within about 2-3 hours travel time. Some field trips will have a duration of 1/2 day, others will be full-day trips. More than half of these field trips will be of a technical nature; however, we anticipate having several field trips for the family members of symposium attendees.

Seatbelts Required at Stage Too!

SEATBELTS REQUIRED Or The Play I Wrote To Piss-off My Sisters
by Kimberley Demmary
Directed by Frank Malle

After their mother’s funeral, three sisters gather at their childhood home and try to come to terms with the destruction their mother brought to their lives.  In the process of clearing out the family home, they find themselves reevaluating everything they thought they knew about their childhoods, themselves and each other. As the afternoon progresses, they are shocked to discover that their divergent memories, old hurts and long held resentments have created the toughest save-or-toss project of their lives.  The sisters hesitantly try to connect through remembered laughter and shared sorrow of living with their alcoholic and thrice married mother, and the ongoing damage she caused to their lives. As sometimes harrowing memories are brought to the surface, they struggle to realize that, though they have been wounded, they are connected by a deeply shared bond and they can only look to each other for healing.  

The Cast for SEATBELTS REQUIRED:

Janet...........Julie Harrington

 Agnes.........Amber Bosworth

 Maggie..................Allie Elliott

Smoki Museum Exhibit: "An Essential Relationship"

 
“An Essential Relationship:
Amateurs and Professionals in Central Arizona Archaeology”
Exhibit Opening:  December 6th, 1:00pm
 
 
 
From the 1920’s until today, groups of individuals have pursued archaeological activities in the Central Arizona region.  While professional archaeologists can bring a unique level of sophistication to these explorations of the past through the science-based work they perform in the field, in the lab and in the library; amateurs have often led the way in prehistoric research.  Although they often lack the formal education and training possessed by professionals, these amateurs frequently offer surprisingly sophisticated skills and remarkable respect for the past.  Plus, what they may lack in traditional credentials is often more than compensated for through innate interest, enthusiasm and, yes, the love they may bring to the work.
 
Through the information we present and the stories we tell, exhibit visitors will see that Central Arizona serves as a particularly good example of how amateur archaeologists working in their own or in conjunction with professionals have made, and can continue to make major contributions to knowledge and understanding of the past.  Publication available in Museum Gift Shop.  Exhibit runs through May 31, 2015.
 
 
General Admission:
Adults:  $7.00
Seniors:  $6.00
Students with ID:  $5.00
Children under 12 and Native People are free of Charge
 
 
Museum Hours: Weekdays 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Sundays 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
