From the ever raucous Rachel Day ’16:
On FEBRUARY 7TH, Art House is hosting a Wesleyan artists’ fair.
Whether you have two zines or twenty paintings that you would like to contribute, we would love to present your work. Our hope is that artists will gain exposure and connect with others on campus.
contact Rachel Day at rday[at]wesleyan[dot]edu (or any other Art House resident) by FEBRUARY 3RD to submit.
please include descriptions and the amount of your work – anything will be accepted, whether it’s figure drawings, photographs, socks, postcards, etc etc.
Art work and crafts will be for sale – this does not necessarily mean monetary, however. Artists will set their own prices; whether their drawing sells for $10, two dinners, a print in return, or any other form of trade is up to them.
Full House will be providing refreshments, Music House will be providing live music, so come and hang! The event will run from 1-5 pm on Saturday, February 7th.
A percentage of each sale, proceeds from the refreshments, and a “pay what you want” at-the-door fee will all be donated to Green Street Art Center in Middletown.
Check out the Facebook event.
Date: Feb 7th
Time: 1-5pm Saturday
Where: Art House
From the awesomeness that is Nadja Shannon-Dabek ’15:
Do you adore Bulgarian music wholeheartedly? Do you enjoy listening to songs with crazy rhythms and incredible harmonies? Then we’ve got a treat for you!
“Vlada Tomova, known for her “phenomenal acrobatic vocalizations” (Boston Globe) joins with the dynamic vocalists Valentina Kvasova and Shelley Thomas to weave together traditional Bulgarian village styles with artfully arranged a cappella songs and reveal the disarming power and intimacy of the unaccompanied voice. Their reinterpretations of ancient songs tell old time tales of sweet or forbidden love, horses and wild mountains, potent wine, pepper planting, the moon holding secrets, and the sun falling in love with a beautiful girl and her song. Joyous, mysterious, mournful, exuberant, mesmerizing melodies; rich, unusual harmonies; and peculiar, odd rhythms come together to shimmer, intrigue, and delight the ear.
Preceding the show will be a workshop from 4-6 which will be geared towards Slavei, but anyone who is interested is welcome to join!You can also check these videos of their performances Live at Lincoln Center, and live at Fridman Gallery.
When: Workshop 4-6pm, Concert 7-8pm
Where: The World Music Hall
How Much: Free

From the wacky and silly Rachel Day ’16:
Across time and culture, storytelling and oral tradition are an indelible element of humankind. Connect with your primordial self and tell a story at The Sloth’s first event of the year!
The Sloth (based loosely off the group that wouldn’t let us use their name
) provides a time and place where individuals can come together to share true stories from their life. We laugh, we cry, it’s all very cathartic.
