Happy New Year... Indeed

by Dr. David Fialk, Editor / Publisher


On this solid ground, I explained to B. that preachiness was, at least in part, the point of the evening, and finished my thought.

The matriarch's riddle resolved, I wished the new couple congratulations, "Mazel tov. Mazel tov," and addressing myself to S., discreetly observed that this woman, the matriarch had been speaking backwards.

New year, whatever your persuasion is a time of resolutions. The ritual of the fish head advises us to intelligently choose and follow through on these new resolutions, instead of being led along mindlessly like a tail.

"You should not be frustrated with them. They don't yet understand what you are advocating. You have to explain it better."

Body Fictions
Karen Wight & Kathleen Cammarata
exhibit / conversation with the artists

Fri-Mon, Oct 8, 9, 10


What ensued was a routine exploitation of the female body as a signifier of erotic desire. In the art form of the European nude, the painters, spectators and collectors were men.

In the twentieth and twenty-first centuries artists emerged, many of whom were women, who depicted all aspects of the body. Their drawings and paintings acknowledge the body's physicality. Contemporary works express feelings, pain, and disease.

Wight's sculptures strike poses that are active, even hanging in space, like acrobats.

In Cammarata's drawings, the body reveals interior thoughts and experiences. Figures have an attitude. Hands gesture with feeling.

Indigenous Cinema in San Miguel
Compartimento Cinematográfico

by Jeffrey Sipe

Campesinos struggling to forge a sustainable life in the face of threats from both cartels and the military has spawned a number of Mexican features and short films in the past few years.

Director Joshua Gil's Sanctorum... is both mysterious and magical without diminishing the reality of the violence and fear that has taken over the lives of those who know little beyond working the land.

"Nudo Mixteco recounts specific events but I think all women have to confront these same issues," Cruz continued. "It is fundamental that the first territory to defend is our body and the right to do with it what we want."
