The Newberg Historical Society Program

Hosted by the Newberg Historical Society, this monthly talk takes place every last Tuesday of the month at the Chehalem Cultural Center. 

 

For the February talk, Barbara Doyle will talk about the history of the Springbrook community from its earliest days – pioneers arriving in covered wagons – to the present --
international recognition and sales. Her interest in local history led her to take early retirement from teaching high school math so she could concentrate on local history. That big change happened in New York State. Relocating to Oregon did not diminish that interest. She has worked for, and with, historical societies and museums in both states where she has enjoyed researching the history of a place and its people and then sharing her knowledge in varies venues – exhibits, talks, publications and twelve years of presenting hands-on local history programs to elementary school students.

NOTE: This event is not programmed by the CCC, please contact the Newberg Historical Society with any questions: newberghistory@gmail.com

#3: Jayanthi Raman presents DUALITY: an Indian Classical Dance Production

Ballroom

Join us in welcoming Jaynathi Raman's dance company as they tour Oregon with DUALITY: An Immigrant Experience, an Indian classicaldance ballet production that was presented with Creative Heights grant from OCF in April 2017 at the Newmark Theater with full house and rave reviews.

DUALITY: Follows the story of a woman who moves from her hometown in India to Portland, OR and the hardships, challenges she faces in her life and how she overcomes them with support of her friends in her new hometown and finds success and happiness. Story of hope and celebration of immigrant life in US.


The classical dance Bharatha Natyam originates from 2nd century in India and has been handed down through generations of practitioners and teachers as an oral tradition although there are books on the dance codifying the grammar and technique saved from ancient palm leaf manuscripts.  This hour length performance presented by the company dancers, many of whom are immigrants who have moved from India to make Portland their home and some who are second generation dancers who continue the tradition of dancing, supported by their families to preserve and propagate their heritage and cultural roots. Choreographer, danseuse Jayanthi Raman provides narration in English so audience can follow the story.

Jayanthi Raman’s impressive multi-faceted career spans over four decades – as an award winning nationally recognized traditional Indian dance performer, choreographer, master artist – educator, speaker, author, presenter, promoter, producer, and an arts advocate.

Raman is founder and teacher of the premier institution of Indian dance -NATYA Dance Academy, based in Portland, OR, training aspiring students. The dance company and academy enhance cultural diversity by bringing Indian classical dance of highest quality through performances and outreach events influencing the cultural scene.

“Few dancers communicate effectively across the wide gulfs of cultural difference. Jayanthi Raman is one. Even a viewer conditioned by American culture can recognize what sets Raman’s dancing apart. Technique, expressiveness, acting ability, musicality – just as in a ballet.” – The Oregonian

Doors open at 6:30pm, show starts at 7pm. One hour performance with intermission

Tickets are $10 for adults, free for kids/teens under 18!  Please reserve youth tickets even though they are free!

(Paint) the Ten Thousand Things Artist Workshop

12:00 PM12:00

(Paint) the Ten Thousand Things Artist Workshop

Meghan Hedley has led experimental collaborative drawings throughout the country, and will be leading a collaborative drawing at the Chehalem Cultural Center within the gallery that her paintings and drawings are installed in. In this workshop our intention will be to work as a community to create a large piece together, focusing more on the process of drawing and creating than on the end result, which will be mainly abstract. She will also select music to accompany and encourage the creative process. Meghan will set guiding parameters as the participants build up the drawing, and will remain open to the creativity of each individual.

Each participant will move throughout the space simultaneously, working with and building upon what every other participant has done. The drawing will be created within the gallery space and will be experimental in nature. At the end of our drawing we will hang the piece within the Chehalem Cultural Center, and it will become part of the current exhibit: (Paint) the Ten Thousand Things: In Installation. All ages are welcome and no previous drawing experience is necessary!

Reynolds-Rice Acoustic Convergence

This all-ages concert features the talents of two of Oregon's most celebrated blues/rock performers, Ben Rice and Gil Reynolds. Each of these artists has traditional blues/Americana roots, but their combined repertoire spans multiple musical genres. Join us for an honest and soulful evening of fearless guitar playing and powerful vocals.

Ben Rice
Ben's music is deeply rooted in traditional blues, yet at the same time fiercely original. His guitar playing earns labels like "fearless," "inventive" and "powerful," and he routinely brings audiences to their feet with his stunning and emotionally honest vocal delivery. Already an award-winning talent in the Northwest, Ben is stepping into the national and international music scenes.

Gil Reynolds
Often billed as an Americana artist, Gil mixes many genres, but his blues and rock roots infect everything he plays. The ingredients are acoustic and the vibe is honest and soulful. Gil has toured with bands across the country, but for most of his life has performed and recorded music most frequently here in Oregon, the state he loves. 

Doors at 6:30; Show at 7:00 pm | Tickets $20 advance; $25 at door

Teatro Milagro Presents El Payaso

El Payaso

A bilingual play by Teatro Milagro

Written by Emilio Rodriguez Directed by Georgina Escobar 

Amidst chaos, confusion, and war with Americans, a community of Nicaraguans were able to share their culture, their stories and their lives with one American who was willing to listen. "El Payaso" invites the audience on the journey of an incredible man and the extraordinary people with whom he unexpectedly connected. Told through the eyes of a young Latino making the journey thirty years later, as he encounters the people who are still carrying on the work in Nicaragua, sharing their vibrant and dynamic memories that the community will never forget, stories that solidify the message on Linder’s headstone,  "La luz que encendió brillará para siempre". The light he lit will shine forever.
En medio del caos, la confusión y la guerra con los estadounidenses, una comunidad de nicaragüenses pudo compartir su cultura, sus historias y sus vidas con un americano que estaba dispuesto a escuchar. "El Payaso" invita a la audiencia en el viaje de un hombre increíble y las personas extraordinarias con las que inesperadamente se conectó. Dijo a través de los ojos de un joven latino que hace el viaje treinta años más tarde, cuando se encuentra con las personas que todavía llevan a cabo el trabajo en Nicaragua, compartiendo sus memorias vibrantes y dinámicas que la comunidad nunca olvidará, historias que solidifican el mensaje de Linder lápida, "La luz que encendió brillará para siempre". La luz que él encendió brillará para siempre.   
FREE!


As the premier Latino arts and culture center of the Pacific Northwest,  Teatro Milagro has provided extraordinary Latino theatre, culture, and arts education for the enrichment of all communities since 1985.

Artist Talk with Print Arts Northwest

Join several of the artists of Print Arts Northwest for a FREE artist talk to learn about a variety of fine art printmaking techniques and methods used in fine-art printmaking in conjunction with the exhibit on view in the Parrish Gallery.

Print Arts Northwest is an educational nonprofit organization that supports and promotes contemporary fine art printmaking.  Through exhibitions and educational programs they strive to encourage wider appreciation and collection of original prints.  The exhibit in the Parrish Gallery features 17 fine art printmakers exploring landscapes through a variety of fine art print making methods. 

Notes on Technique

Intaglio | in intaglio, the image is produced below the surface of the plate, which is usually copper or zinc.
 

Lithography | The basis of all lithography is the tendency of grease and water to repel each other.  Non-image areas of a lithographic plate contain water ,repelling the greasy oil based in first developed in the late 1700's in Germany, by drawing with a greasy crayon or painting with tusche onto a heavy block of limestone, techniques that are still used by artists today. 
 

Relief Prints | In a relief print, the areas that do not print are cut away.  Ink is applied to the top surface of the plate with a roller or a brush (as in traditional Japanese woodcut), and printed onto paper using a press or by hand rubbing with a tool called a baren.

Monotype & Monoprint | The monotype, often called the "painterly print," is created by painting or otherwise applying ink directly onot a smooth plate, which may be acrylic or metal.

Dia De Los Muertos Celebration
Oct
31
to Nov 2

Dia De Los Muertos Celebration

Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is celebrated in central and southern Mexico at the beginning of November. While this coincides with the Catholic holiday, All Soul's & All Saint’s Day, indigenous people combined this with their ancient belief of honoring their deceased loved ones.  It is believed that the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31, and the spirits of all angelitos (children) are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours. Then, the spirits of the adults come down to enjoy the festivities prepared for them.  

This is celebrated by the building of ofrendas (alters), and community festivities that celebrate the time the living can share with the dead.  The tradition of the ofrenda is to create a mainstay to greet the spirits when they arrive with candies, toys, tamales, chocolates, breads, candles, fruit, mole, mezcal, as well as photos, fashion magazines, cigars or folk art skeletons... and every ofrenda has pan de muerto and sugar skulls!

As a part of Latin American Heritage month, we invite the community to celebrate Dia De Los Muertos over the course of three days, trying to bring a more historic/authentic experience of this Mexican tradition. 


OFRENDA FOR ANGELITOS | Tuesday, October 31, 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM | Butler Square
We welcome the community to come and bring items to add to an ofrenda that will be set up in Butler Square in celebration of the lives of children that have passed.  We will provide items to add to the alter, and everyone is welcome to bring items of their own.  

OFRENDA FOR ADULTS | Wednesday, November 1st, 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM | Butler Square
We welcome the community to add items to the ofrenda in celebration of the lives of children and now adults that have passed.  We will provide items to add to the alter, and everyone is welcome to bring items of their own.  

CELEBRATION | Thursday, November 2nd, 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM | Chehalem Cultural Center
Everyone is invited again to come and celebrate with festivities at the Cultural Center.  
There will be performances, face-painting, decorating sugar skulls, and refreshments.
