“Alexa Kleinbard’s spectacularly beautiful work has focused on the natural world for over 30 years, addressing the issues surrounding the degradation and destructiion of our natural environment,” says Cynthia Hollis, guest curator of the upcoming exhibition, “Alexa Kleinbard:Twilight in the Garden.”

In this exhibition, Kleinbard’s work ranges from oil on shaped birchwood, to oil stick and graphite drawings on paper, to intricate collaged animals in ink, paint, and pencil, all presenting despair and hope with a lyricism and lushness of imagery.

Enter a world of phantasmagorical creatures in a future we should hope to avoid. Jeff VanderMeer will read from his novel AMC is turning into a TV series and talk about nature and the rich biodiversity of Tallahassee—and how we can keep it that way. Jeff VanderMeeris known most for his Southern Reach trilogy from FSG “Borne”, which won the Shirley Jackson Award and Nebula Award and recently made Buzzfeed’s list of the best books of the decade. The trilogy also prompted the New Yorker to call the author “the weird Thoreau” and was published in 35 countries, with Paramount Pictures releasing a movie in 2018.

The event is free and open to the public.

Third Annual World Culture Festival @ Good Samaritan UMC
Feb 8 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Join us at Good Samaritan UMC for delicious cuisine, exciting performances, unique shopping experiences, and free classes at Tallahassee’s third annual World Culture Festival. Featuring food, artists, faith, and performances which showcase traditions from around the world, this family-friendly event has something for everyone. This festival is a celebration of the human existence and the diversity of our local area and offers the chance for the entire community to come together to celebrate their differences and discover their similarities.

One of the most powerful ways to share culture is through art, craft, and food. Tables offering information about various religious and cultural beliefs and practices, as well as craft vendors showcasing art, music, and food from around the world will be part of the event. This festival provides an opportunity for people of all ages to learn about faiths, philosophies, and cultures different from their own through interaction. The focus is on information and education, not condemnation or conversion.

Expressions of culture and belief vary across the globe and the World Culture Festival showcases these traditions in the greater Tallahassee area by bringing together local dancers, singers, poets, musicians, and storytellers to share their talents. Performances and interactive engagements will be scheduled all day so enjoy the performances or jump in for a class!

Last year’s participants included the the FAMU Gospel Choir, the Matsiko World Orphan Choir, Sambistas Do Sol, Dandera Dancers, Temple Israel’s Bagels and Biscuits, Shirdi Sai Samsthan, Azúcar Dance Company, Swaravahini, Mua’oli’oli Dancers, Gym Force Aerial Arts, Tallahassee Irish Step Dancers, Arte Mexico, Mary Proctor, El Criollo Grill, Faith4You African Food, Caribbean Crossroads, Two Feathers Indian Center, La Gardenia Prints, and many more.

Acrylic Pour Art class @ Goodwood Museum & Gardens
Feb 23 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Get creative with Acrylic Pouring in a demonstration and workshop with Tricia Beall. Each ‘pour’ is unique and just like Forest Gump’s box of chocolates, you never know what your gonna get. You will love this new way of expressing yourself creatively and we dare you to do it once and stop, it is so therapeutic and addictive!
Registration is required, and seating is limited.

This class will be held in Goodwood Museum & Gardens’ Jubilee Cottage on February 23rd from 1 – 3 PM. Tickets are $40 and can be found at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/go-with-the-flow-acrylic-pour-painting-workshop-tickets-91224935237

For more information, please call 850-877-4202 ext.232 or email smcandrew@goodwoodmuseum.org

Tricia Beall is an artist whose experience includes painting in watercolor, acrylic and oils as well as working with collage and wood. She owned her own gallery which represented Russian Impressionists in Hendersonville, NC and trained and worked in fine art, frame conservation, and restoration. Since her recent discovery of the acrylic pour method of painting, she has turned her entire house into a studio and if you look hard enough you can find her all hours of the day and night buried under plastic cups with paint from the tips of her fingers to the tip of her nose! You can see examples of Tricia’s work in the gift shop and Visitors Center at Goodwood.
