With fall arriving, we are sending our summer Bike Friday program out in style. Join us this Friday for a ride from the Henry to Bainbridge Island where riders will be treated to a tour of Classic Cycle’s Historic Bike Collection followed by a tour and reception at the newly open Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. And as it is Bainbridge’s First Friday Artwalk, you are encourage to stay and tour the art venues in downtown Winslow and grab at bite at one of the Island’s many restaurants. Cyclists will meet at the Henry at 3 pm for the ride down to the ferry. The event is FREE; excepting your ferry fare and whatever food and drink you later decide upon.
ArtVENTURES at the Henry (formerly known as Family Sundays) is this Sunday! Artist Carolina Silva will lead a tour through Paul Laffoley: Premonitions of the Bauhauroque and then bring familes back to the Education Studio to create a large scale art piece that celebrates each person’s personal narrative with the physical world. Did you meet Carolina at our Arty Party last May? She was such a hit with the kiddos that we had to bring her back!
Tap your way (on yourself, not with shoes) to releasing your negative emotions. Identify your own personal prime meridian and heal yourself. This demonstration is part of Down Time. Inspired by do-it-yourself culture and the wealth of how-to resources on the internet, Down Time is an eight-week presentation that explores free-choice learning and the pursuit of entertainment in our “down” time.
Paul Laffoley, founder of the Boston Visionary Cell and Henry exhibiting artist, offers an intense, deep, and mesmerizing conversation this Saturday from 1-4 pm at the Henry.
His discussion will traverse the conceptual overlap between art history, architecture, classical literature, natural and occult sciences, and science fiction in contemporary painting – and we are sure, more.
As the lecture is long, we invite attendees to get up and stretch as needed. There will be refreshments in the Education Studio.
