IMAGO to feature work by three artists February 8 – March 18 @ Imago Gallery
Feb 18 all-day
IMAGO to feature work by three artists February 8 - March 18 @ Imago Gallery | Warren | Rhode Island | United States

Imago Foundation for the Arts (IFA) will feature artwork by IFA featured artists Linda Megathlin and Mercedes Nuñez and guest artist Stephen Remick as part of a group exhibit February 8 through March 18 at IMAGO Gallery, 36 Market Street, Warren. The public is invited to a free reception for the artists on Friday, February 9 from 6 – 8 p.m.

Megathlin, a photographer and mixed media artist, will present a series of still life photographs that she has titled, “Animate Objects.” Her images are created from objects that she has gathered, collected or rescued. While still life artworks are by definition “inanimate,” Megathlin has arranged them in such a way as to depict imagined relationships and the dynamic push and pull that exists between beings and bodies that seemingly share the same space. An IMAGO founding member, she lives and works in Warren and has exhibited throughout Rhode Island and in national juried exhibitions.

Nuñez’s series of paintings called, “The GATHERING STORM,” is a homage of love, reverence and fear of the power of the invisible form — the universal unity that exist among all phenomena. Cuban-born, she lives in Massachusetts, but dreams of living elsewhere and has an extensive body of work that includes painting, mixed media/collage and photography. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is in the permanent collection of Bridgewater State University and in private collections throughout the U.S.

Remick’s artwork includes a series of landscape paintings that began in his backyard but soon after extended to the world beyond. His subjects include stone walls, abandoned cellar holes and cemeteries, woodpiles, surveyor’s ribbon, paths and the abstract beauty of sunlight and shadow on snow. By highlighting these motifs, Remick guides the viewer to think deeply, to realize our connection to one another, our environment, our past, and our future. Remick has had numerous exhibits in both local galleries and museums and has work in private collections throughout the U.S. and internationally. Recently, he has re-connected with plein-air painting and sets aside time to paint on-site near where he lives in Southcoast Massachusetts as well as in neighboring coastal Rhode Island, and Vermont.

Other IMAGO artists who will participate in the exhibit include Eileen Siobhan Collins, Rose Esson-Dawson, Mary Dondero, Betty Harrington, Carl Keitner, Pascale Lord, Eileen Mayhew, Yolanda Mazzoni, Rina Naik, Anne Marie Rossi, Lenny Rumpler, Howard Rotblat-Walker and Howard Windham.

To Win or Lose All: William S. Sims and the U.S. Navy in the First World War @ Naval War College Museum
Feb 18 @ 10:00 am – 4:30 pm
To Win or Lose All: William S. Sims and the U.S. Navy in the First World War @ Naval War College Museum | Newport | Rhode Island | United States

The Naval War College Museum presents a new exhibit, “To Win or Lose All: Williams S. Sims and the U.S. Navy in the First World War.” The exhibit occupies the museum’s gallery on the second floor.
To Win or Lose All explores the Navy’s role in securing victory for the Allies during the First World War. Under Admiral Sims’s leadership, American warships escorted convoys to France, laid mines in the North Sea, and hunted German submarines. On land, naval aviators flew scouting and bombing missions while Marines fought in the trenches east of Paris. While the sweeping naval campaigns of 1942-1945 may attract more scholarly attention, the foundation for their success was established twenty-five years earlier when the Navy operated for the first time as part of a coalition. Indeed, many officers who rose to prominence in the Second World War – Ernest J. King, Chester W. Nimitz, and Harold R. Stark, to name a few – gained valuable experience with combined operations during the first global conflict of the twentieth century. Curator Rob Doane hopes, “that this exhibit will encourage visitors to understand Admiral Sims and the sailors who served under him as real people who worked under difficult circumstances to meet the enormous challenges of wartime service.”

Dance Music Jam Sessions @ Goff Hall
Feb 18 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Dance  Music Jam Sessions @ Goff Hall | Rehoboth | Massachusetts | United States

The dance music jam sessions continue in Rehoboth every Sunday night from 7-9 p.m. All are welcome!

Once a month throughout the year, the session is a Community Dance, at which we teach everything that needs teaching, depending on the experience of the dancers. The Community Dances go from 7 to 9 p.m. and are preceded by a potluck at 6 p.m.

All Jammers dances are held on Sunday nights from 7 to 9 with a potluck at 6 p.m.

For information or to check about cancellations, call Bob Elliott at 774-644-1369 or email him at bobolinkelliott@yahoo.com.

The Sunday Night Jammers are a group of (mostly) instrumental (mostly) musicians, who play (mostly) Celtic-inspired dance music. Our music is (mostly) for couple dances, such as waltzes, hambos, polkas, and schottisches.

Now, to clear up those “mostly”s:
1) Sometimes we sing…or at least some of us sing.
2) Some of us are very serious musicians, some are duffers, many are in between. We are VERY polite about each other’s errors.
3) We started with English, Scottish, Irish, Canadian, and New England dance music, but we have gotten more international as the months go by.
4) After Scandinavian and German couple dances, a few Israeli line dances appeared, followed by some Greek and Balkan dances with “interesting” time signatures.

In brief, all of us have learned a lot, and we welcome others to come play, teach, learn, and, in general, have fun!
