A Contemporary Book of Saints:
                      Icons - Altars - Reliquaries

Inspired by medieval icons, box constructions created by Margo Klass speak to the foibles and obsessions of contemporary culture. Architecturally, the constructions make use of found and fabricated objects to recall icons, shrines, altarpieces, and reliquaries and suggest the intimate contemplative aspects of their historical counterparts. Accompanying the boxes are legends of the saints by writer Frank Soos - philosophic, whimsical, ironic or humorous, but always instructive to the attentive viewer.

During her extended visit to Homer this holiday season,  Nedra Carroll will share music, tools for creative growth and inspiration with old friends, new friends, artists and family in three events at Bunnell Street Arts Center.

Nedra has performed for kings, queens and presidents, but it is the simple values and frontier creativity of this small town that inspire her.  She will share her insights and then we will mingle for a potluck of fabulous finger foods. Bring a dish to share. A donation of $5 (suggested) supports Bunnell.

Tuning into the artist within, a brainstorming and barnstorming workshop. "For those who join me, I want to know who you are, what you are doing, what you feel the world needs, and how I and others can support you in that.  We will share, plan, open and sing together and those who choose may join me in several songs during Saturday's concert."  The workshop donation is $11, with a discount for those who attend more than one event. The workshop will be scheduled to meet interested participants' availability.

DECEMBER 12, 7:30pm    CONCERT
Music and prose with a dash of theatre and a bit of joining in to celebrate the true spirit of Christmas: hearts joined in the presence of Love. Nedra's ecstatic singing invites us to remember, laugh, perhaps cry and most certainly to sing. Suggested Donation $15.
