“I GET BY WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS” Begins this Wednesday. At some point in your college experience, you've probably felt overwhelmed, anxious or down in the dumps. College life is challenging, academically and socially, and at times may seem like too much to handle or integrate alone. Perhaps you've wanted to talk with your peers when you've felt this way, but you have not found the right time or space to do so. The Multifaith Chaplains desire to create and facilitate a space where students can talk among themselves about their experiences of stress, anxiety and depression. The ongoing conversation will be held on six Wednesdays–TONIGHT, Nov. 2, 9, 16, 30, Dec. 7–from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. We will gather in the Multifaith Chaplaincy Common Room, 163 Wood Street, Second Floor. If you are interested in joining this six-week conversation, please sign up by contacting one of the Multifaith Chaplains: Bill Blaine-Wallace (wblainew@bates.edu) or Emily Wright-Magoon (ewrightt@bates.edu).

The Multifaith Chaplaincy – {PAUSE} Take a break for stillness and reflection; a weekly service of music, dance, poetry, prose and silence. Stay a little later for chai and cookies! – Each Wednesday, 9 to 9:30 pm – The Chapel. Tonight with musical offerings by The Deansmen.

Gallery Talk: Marsden Hartley — Museum of Art

Academic date. Jee Kim '12 offers a talk on Marsden Hartley at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday, May 18, in the Museum of Art, 75 Russell St. The event is free of charge and open to the public.

Marsden Hartley was born in Lewiston and became one of America's greatest modernist painters. Hartley loved traveling. France and Nova Scotia are two distinct places that gave Hartley inspiration. In France, Hartley caught Cézzane fever, and in Nova Scotia, he founda fundamental goodness and nobility of humanity.

Kim's talk, based on research conducted during an internship with the Museum during the winter 2010 semester, will offer insight into Hartley's wanderings and how his discovery of his unique vision emerged from his relationship with nature and human interactions.

Zip Kellogg shows whitewater film — Pettigrew Hall, Filene Room (301)

Presentation. The Bates Outing Club presents legendary Maine paddler Zip Kellogg and will be showing a film of the 1940 National Whitewater Canoe & Kayak Championships held on the Rapid River. Since produced 70 years ago, this film was thought lost. Kellogg had been on lookout for the film for 30 years, maintaining little hope that it still existed. Only by utter chance and a twist of fate did he find the film, a 17-minute silent color piece that provides a treasure trove of images, incidents and windows in to canoe and kayak racing equipment and techniques of another era.
Kellogg is a Maine-based paddler who has paddled or rafted such rivers as the Tatshenshini (in Alaska), the Colorado, the Rio Grande, as well as a variety of Quebec and New Brunswick rivers. He is the author of several guide books to canoeing Maine rivers as well as the Whole Paddlers Catalog.

Gallery Talk: Printmaking — Museum of Art

Lecture. With their many stages of production, the mediums of silkscreen and lithography are often mysterious to art audiences. Heidi Judkins '10 will offer a short gallery talk at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday, May 4, in the Museum of Art, 75 Russell St. The event is free of charge and open to the public.

The information session will focus on a small group of works from the collection and utilize a PowerPoint detailing the processes of both mediums, step-by-step. Through this, the audience will gain more appreciation of the amount of work that is put into each print. Also, by knowing the steps of the printmaking process, audiences will be able to visualize the evolution of what they are actually looking at the next time they see a silkscreen or a lithograph. Works drawn from the collection will be used to illustrate the range that each process can produce.
