Aspiring young artists: are you looking for something creative and artistic to do this summer? You're in luck because GIV is offering an online arts Immersion this summer! This virtual offering will guide you through the development of your own artistic practice, introducing you to new skills, techniques, and approaches for exploring your very own artistic expressive form and style. Plus, you'll be introduced to amazing artists from the GIA family! Tuition has been reduced to "pay-what-you-can" and alumni can now enroll in a previously attended GIV program. For more detailed information and to begin an application, please visit www.giv.org.
This summer course will concentrate on individual creative expression in painting. Students will work in their own unique style. Projects will be student oriented, focusing on finding the technique, subject matter, and ideas of each individual in response to their interests, strengths, and experiences. The group will meet every two weeks to talk about painting, touching on the history, philosophy, technique. In between these sessions, students will schedule an hour meeting with Chalice (2 times) to discuss their project one-on-one. Chalice will offer individualized suggestions for further research, specialized demos on technique, and discussion on the process and ideas behind the work.
Saturday, June 27: 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. // Welcome, Creativity Exercises & Brainstorming/Presentation
Saturday, July 11: 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. // Discussion, Share Progress & Feedback
Saturday, July 25: 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. // Final Critique & Discussion
Chalice Mitchell paints to offer alternative representations of gender, sexuality, and power. Her paintings challenge gender-based stereotypes and destabilize limited (and limiting) gender divisions. She is interested in the spaces between, the grey areas, the intersections, the multifaceted quality of identity, social relations, history, and the messy nature of human experience. Born in Western Massachusetts, Chalice has lived and worked in the United States, Canada, Japan, and England. She has exhibited in Tokyo, London, New York City, Vancouver, Moscow, and many other places across the United States, England, Japan, Italy, and New Zealand. Chalice holds a BFA from Ringling School of Art and Design and an MFA from the University of South Florida.

At the Right Place At the Right Time, an exhibit of 50 photos taken over five decades in the career of photographer Jon Gilbert Fox, a Hanover resident, will open on-line at 7:00 PM EDT on Thursday July 9th. At this opening, arts writer David Corriveau will interview Mr. Fox about the back-stories of the photos. There is no charge for attending but advance registration, at www.chandler-arts.org, is preferred. A selection of prints from the on-line exhibit will also open in Chandler's Main Gallery on Saturday July 11th, at 7:00 PM EDT. Gallery hours thereafter are 1:00 - 4:00 PM on the weekend and all day during the week, through Sunday August 2nd.
Fox’s freelance photography has often centered on theater and dance, but he is also known for his twenty-five-years-plus work as a photographer for Vermont Life Magazine. He has worked for and been published in such diverse periodicals as The New York Times, US News & World Report, Yankee Magazine, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone, Sesame Street Magazine, House and Garden, Der Spiegel, Vogue, and Popular Photography, to share a short list. Regional residents will know Fox’s photographs from books and gallery exhibitions as well. Many of the images in this current show have never been printed or exhibited before.
Included in At The Right Place At The Right Time are photographs of such gay icons as Franklin Kameny, Gore Vidal, David Hockney, and Paul Cadmus, as well as others in the arts and activism who ended up in front of Fox’s lens: for example, Glenn Close, Jesse Jackson, Liza Minelli, Donald Hall, and Tony Bennett.
Mr. Fox is also donating two dozen signed first editions of books by major gay authors, and by other luminaries he has photographed, to a silent auction supporting pride events. Details of the auction items and how to bid on them will be available on the Chandler website. The auction as well as the two exhibits close Sunday August 2nd, at 5:00 PM EDT.

From the Sandglass Archives
Sandglass Theater has created twenty-five productions since our founding in 1982. Most of these have been video recorded for archival purposes, which means they are for our own documentation, marketing, and press outreach. Some of these recordings are better than others, although none of them is recorded with the intention of conveying the full experience of a live performance. These recordings offer a window into our past for those who want to learn more about our history and how our work has developed over these decades. The videos we have selected offer insight into where we have been and where we are going.
Richard 3.5: Light Ruminations on Murder
A collaboration between Bob Berky and Sandglass Theater. Live from the 15th century, King Richard III is here to perform, for your enjoyment, 11 murders and 7 songs that Shakespeare never meant to write. Surrounded by larger-than-life candles, whose wax is used to create the puppet victims before your eyes, Richard and his emcee accomplice dance and sing their way through this epic tragedy.
Isidor’s Cheek, Family Audiences
So begins the song, which begins the story, which begins the adventure: One day, something drives Isidor from his little grey existence. His cheek runs away and Isidor must search around the world to find it again: a world of color and beauty as well as loneliness and even danger. Inspired by a German children’s book.
