CALENDAR LISTINGS FOR Friday, April
BRATTLEBORO Lydia Kern: "PASSAGES" - Opening celebration for this site-specific sculptural installation: "My work honors the processes of physical and material mending, and the loss and tension that the transformative process requires, through sculptural installation works that are in relationship to the body in scale and material. My process reflects on acts of care as I collect, reclaim, and prepare materials and objects to exist in new relationships with one another, creating a weighty yet ephemeral material poetic. It has led me to forage in dumpsters, compost piles, thrift stores, free boxes, fabric stores, and florist shops. Though I am drawn to certain materials because of personal associations and experiences I have with them, the final pieces create spacious visual metaphors on which the viewer can project their own experiences.". 5-8 p.m. in the Sanctuary Gallery. Free. Epsilon Spires, 190 Main St. Information: 802-451-0844; Click for more info on Web in new window.
Green Burial - The Natural Way to Go (via Zoom): If life after death - for the soil at least - is what you want, then decompose with purpose! Higher Ground Conservation Burial is about regenerating forest life with our bodies once their expiration date has come. Founders Michael Mayer and Fred Taylor share the story of bringing Higher Ground to life (and death), grand opening soon. Equal parts practical information and enlightened exchange around themes of sustaining life with death, building community around that process in a forest sanctuary, and rediscovering our own true nature and connection with the Divine in whatever form we may perceive the root of our being. 5-6:30 p.m. Offered by Living Earth Action Group. Green Burial is an outgrowth of the Manitou Project (in Williamsville, VT). Free. Zoom. Information: Register for link (will be sent on 4/1): firstname.lastname@example.org.
