Art Attack/ Oak Bluffs Spreads the Love

September 1, 2016 by Julia Pearl

Currently on display throughout the Oak Bluffs Cultural District is ArtAttack/Oak Bluffs, a series of 52, 9×12″ oil paintings on canvas boards installed in, and around the area.

The exhibit is a collaborative effort between Oak Bluffs residents Harry Judd and Peter Mallen as a personal response to the escalating terrorism in the world today.  The message the artist hope to convey is that “love can be created by giving in small, but meaningful ways. Be kind…listen to people. Don’t become desensitized.” ArtAttack/Oak Bluffs will remain in place through September 11th of this year.

The Pleats of Time

August 26, 2016 by Beth Colt

A music theater piece with Eugenie Kuffler – conception, composition, choreography, lighting design, interpretation and Janoah Bailin – juggling, movement and acting. Tickets $12. With words, music, movement and light The Pleats of Time tells 2 stories that were hidden away, enfolded into the past – the 1st, from mist enshrouded adolescence when love was so strong it burned; the 2nd, more recent, from within the sheets of a bed – a long poem during which a woman frees herself from the oppressive bonds of her lover. And between these stories a 3rd one, that of Kamil Guenatri, a performance artist whose shrunken body is confined to a wheel chair but whose creativity offers the energy to open the pleats of the unresolved past.
