Grant Park Cooperative Preschool Art Show and Auction

Don't miss this ONCE-A-YEAR opportunity to be part of a fabulous event! Enjoy a wonderful evening while supporting the Grant Park Cooperative Preschool. Silent and live auctions featuring one-of-a-kind art from local artists, vacations, restaurant gift certificates, retail items, and anything else you could imagine ... even one lucky champagne-drinker will win a diamond!

Tough times call for creative thinking and this year, support from community businesses has been overwhelming! In addition to the artwork from emerging artists, other auction items include a trip to Argentina, a weekend stay at St. Simons Island, Georgia, hundreds of dollars in gift certificates, tickets to Atlanta-area events, photography sessions with local photographers and so much more. A variety of items will also be available, including clothing, pottery, handmade jewelry and other creative offerings from local retailers.

Come peruse the art, eat, drink and be entertained! Tickets are $20, and include food by Jackmont Hospitality, drinks from Sierra Nevada and a diamond and champagne raffle sponsored by Burk's Jewelers. Proceeds from the auction and art show play a significant role in the not-for-profit school's operating budget, as well as help fund scholarships, teacher salaries and school supplies.

The Grant Park Cooperative Preschool currently serves 120 families at campuses in Grant Park and Cabbagetown. The Preschool's curriculum follows the Reggio Emilia approach to education and is designed to encourage the development of the child’s self-respect and inner discipline. Primary importance is placed upon creating opportunities for the children to satisfy their natural curiosity and to find fulfilling outlets through music, art, literature, language, drama and other forms of play. As a cooperative, parents are involved in contributing inside the classroom to their children's education.

Your Head is Full of Stars March 12, 2010

Price:  $10, $8


Crossover Movement Arts and Zentropy present "Your Head is Full of Stars," an evening of improvisational dance and music, Friday, March 12 at Eyedrum Art and Music Gallery. This live performance will explore the meeting of accident and intention. The dancers and musicians will create the performance in the moment, their improvisations given shape through predetermined structures.

"How do we as artists use all the tools of our training and experience without being limited by them?" asks Crossover Movement Arts artistic director Blake Dalton, who also performs as part of Several Dancers Core's Core Performance Company. The question speaks to the dual challenges of an improvisational performance: to unleash the creative spirit of each artist within the performative moment while still crafting into each work a distinct and dynamic character, development and quality. "We are diligently sweating through different approaches to movement improvisation," says Dalton, "constantly seeking different entrances into the art of instant choreography."

Plans for the show were first sparked by Allen Welty-Green, artistic director of Zentropy, an improvisational band that combines elements of improvisational jazz, electronica, and experimental music. Welty-Green, who is also chair of the board of directors at Eyedrum, had previously collaborated with other dancers in both traditionally choreographed works and works that included elements of improvisation. Welty-Green was interested in attempting a show in which both music and movement were entirely improvised. He reached out to Tom Bell, program director of the Decatur Book Festival, an avid improvisational dancer, and a member of Crossover Movement Arts. Soon after, a collaboration between Zentropy and Crossover Movement Arts was born.

"I am very excited about the synergy between music and dance," says Welty-Green, "and this project attempts to capture that synergy in its rawest form. It's spontaneous composition meets spontaneous choreography."

Join us for this live laboratory. Watch us work, experiment and play. Breathe the same air with us as we chase movement and music, as we soar and sometimes fall. Feel free to watch with one eye closed, turn your head upside down, come and go. Your head is already full of stars. We just hope they shine a little differently after you spend some time with us.

Crossover Movement Arts is a continually evolving community of creative movers finding different ways to examine and delight in the ritual of performance.

Zentropy

The name says it all. Sometimes the zen of the moment takes the sound into exciting directions, but order and structure can break down as entropy ensues. Such is the nature of improv, and such is the nature of Zentropy....
Keyboardist Allen Welty-Green, percussionist Davis Petterson & bassist Gabriel Monticello create spontaneous music. It's improvised but is it jazz? It's spacey but is it jam?

Voids without mouths! Wars between mold spores! Omnidirectional taxidermic treats! Geysers of gore! The long long shadow of the lunar cycle! Toxins and peril! Sterile Feral Book-Births! And their Mother(s)! Oh, who did buff us then? Grind your teeth and moan! Caca-phony and simple strains! Singing greens in the pot! And bellowing components of soil! Bust a bud or two and shower sparks without number! What happens when you drink bleach! Only a third as many Eyes as Teeth! And the absence of light in between! Fire! Sex! Violence! And spit! And that what to catch it in, spittoons for all! A cast of thousands! And the Harza Clan, fully-sized! -- Miniaturized! -- and otherwise! Even pickled if your eyeballs are quick! Cameras! Microphones! Cameras! Microphones! Recordings with breath and energy! A hot moist wind down your neck as the winter wanes! And you can tell your grandkids what it felt like! Then just press play on the tape machine! What wonders will abound in their apple-sized heads! Flesh and life in the butter tray! And spoons and forks made of bone! And the phone's just-a-ringin like mad back at home and you'll never know! Answering machines with legs! Stringy tar, iron-oxide impregnated! No amount of rubbing alcohol will clean your heads! And vagueness! Captain Wimwam actually really and truly completely dead this time for real! Just a little wisp of blue smoke from the grave is all! And his angry sidekick Splodo the Frown, roots covered in bad salts but no wrinkled fingers hindering the rendering of THIS bat-infested sky! Only the pearly and supple! Kneecaps of guano! Could've used that Nitrogen elsewhere, eh Splodo? Buds and seeds = the self-sustaining androgeny of this strange wood! Luscious grains beget jagged chasms with doilies for door casings! And Goon #46 -- another instance of a void with filling, together on a gray plane no contrast in sight! Invisible! But audible! Sandy Clara! Clara Number Eight! Clara Fourteen! Clara tethered and tied! Jimmy Steamboat! What do you know, Mrs. O? Nurse with Syringe! Hunter with Shotgun! The Alarm Repair Man! I'm here to service the alarm! Open the fuckin' door! Circus Buyers!
