During a wedding reception in an old family home in Knoxville, Tennessee, five bridesmaids, each with her own reason for hiding from the festivities, periodically take refuge in an upstairs bedroom.

Stories are generally built around scenes, but it can be challenging to decide which scenes deserve dramatization. Many writers, when confronted with this confusion, actually choose to illustrate rather than to dramatize, to pick a representative moment or episode rather than the moment that advances plot. This talk will focus on how to recognize the difference between illustrative and dramatic scenes, how to turn illustrations into dramatizations, and when it is, in fact, useful and right to use an illustration. Sponsored by the Center for Women Writers.

Holly Goddard Jones Reading

She teaches in the MFA program in creative writing at UNC Greensboro. About Girl Trouble, Edward P. Jones says, “A grand debut of a writer who is assured, sensitive and wonderfully skillful. . . . A marvelous work of heartbreaking wisdom.” Sponsored by the Center for Women Writers. Background image of Jones.

Throughout our nation’s history, the arts have been instrumental in protecting many of our national treasures. Through his recent project, “Lost on the Road to Oblivion, The Vanishing Beauty of Coal Country,” WinstonSalem photographer Carl Galie hopes to continue this legacy. His exhibit takes the viewer on a journey through the Southern Appalachians and documents the controversial practice of mountaintop removal in this hauntingly beautiful series about the natural environment. The project raises the question of whether years of environmental regulation should be overruled in an attempt to stimulate the economy by allowing this industrial coal mining practice to continue. Panel discussion during reception held in Shirley Recital Hall. Background Image: detail from Lost on the Road to Oblivion.

Featuring a dynamic and rare collection of portraits taken off the beaten path primarily in Kenya and Haiti, this exhibition takes a truly humbling and unique look into the inner life of these beautiful people. Visit www.salem.edu/culturalevents for details.

The waves of feminism began during the late-19th and early-20th centuries. The first wave focused on promoting equal rights in contracts, marriage, parenting and property. It also included activism in gaining political power and the right for women to vote. The second wave began in the early-1960s and was concerned with women’s issues of cultural and political inequalities and encouraged women to understand the aspects of their personal lives as deeply politicized and as reflecting sexist power structures. Third-wave feminism began in the early-1990s as a response to perceived failures of the second wave and seeks to challenge the second wave’s essentialist definitions of femininity. Building on the ideas and images of feminism in the 20th century, this group exhibition focuses on feminist art and the aesthetic, intellectual and political impact of women on the visual arts and art practice in the 21st century. Visit www.salem.edu/culturalevents for details.
