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

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

From the super hip and funky fresh Jacob Musinsky ’15:
Ever feel like there is something you wish you could change about Wesleyan? Are you interested in working on policies concerning financial aid, residential life, student life, academics, dining, social justice, and other issues facing the student body? Do you want to be involved in working with student groups – from helping them budget their activities, to bringing them into important conversations where the WSA could benefit from their input? Do you want to keep Wes weird, sustainable, affordable, and just an overall awesome place?
If so, consider running for a spot on the WSA in the Winter Election! If you are interested, election petitions will be available Monday, November 18th, and are due at 5:00 PM on Friday, November 22nd to the WSA office on the bottom floor of Usdan. A mandatory candidate meeting will then take place at 5:00 PM on the 22nd in 41 Wyllys Room 112. Voting will occur when we return from Thanksgiving Break, from December 2nd to December 6th.
An information session explaining both the general workings of the WSA and the election process will occur on Sunday, November 17, from 1-2PM in Allbritton 311.
If you’re looking to make a change at Wesleyan and represent your friends, classmates and fellow students, then the WSA could be the place for you! If you want to get in touch with us – you can email us at wsa(at)wesleyan(dot)edu, check out our website, or tweet at us.
