e Small Mechanisms of Being: An Evening with Poet Aimee Nezhukumatathil

Photo by: Sigrid Estrada

Tuesday, March 13 at 7:30 p.m. Shirley Recital Hall, Salem Fine Arts Center Reception and book signing will follow event. Aimee Nezhukumatathil is the author of three poetry collections: Lucky Fish, At the DriveIn Volcano (winner of the Balcones Prize) and Miracle Fruit (winner of the Tupelo Press Prize, ForeWord magazines Book of the Year Award, the Global Filipino Award and a nalist for e Glasgow Prize and the Asian American Literary Award). Lucky Fish is fascinated with the small mechanisms of being, whether natural, personal, or imagined. Everything from eating eels in the Ozark mountains to the history of red dye nds a rich life in her poems. At times her lush settings and small stories are reminiscent of fairy tales ( e frog who wanted to see the sea was mostly disappointed), while at others Nezhukumatathil speaks with resonance and erceness: e center of my hands boiled/ with blossoms when we made a family. I would never ee that garden. I swear to/ you here and now: If I ever go missing, know that I am trying to come home. Even as the poems jump from the Philippines to India to New York, they still take their time, stopping to notice that there is no mystery on water/ greater than the absence of rust, and to draw small but wonderful parallels: I loved you dark & late. e crocus have found ways to push up & say this/ too.

With an intention to re-inform the art canon, the faces of women artists over the centuries are re-presented. Many of these artists received a lack of recognition, surpassed by the hegemony of their male-dominated world. With inuences as diverse as Hildegard von Bingen and Lee Krasner, new synergies are crafted from both opaque and transparent structures. is exhibit explores mediums from paintings with oils to compositions in glass. Maternal metanarratives also pay tribute to this neglected other-half. * Exhibit hours are 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday - Friday and 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Tuesday, February 28 at 7:30 p.m. Hanes Auditorium, Salem Fine Arts Center Miss Representation exposes how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in positions of power and inuence in America. It challenges the medias limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it dicult for women to achieve leadership positions, and for the average woman to feel powerful herself. Stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists and academics, like Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Margaret Cho, Rosario Dawson and Gloria Steinem, build momentum as Miss Representation accumulates startling facts and statistics that will leave the audience shaken and armed with a new perspective. e documentary, written and directed by Jennifer Siebel, premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Recommended for mature audiences. In addition to the viewing, Salem students will participate in activities as part of the Salem Signature Womens Leadership program, made possible by a grant from BB&T, through the Oce of the Dean of Students.

To enhance this eect, some of the works in the exhibit will be displayed on custom wooden installation components to combine two-dimensional paintings with interactive elements in the third dimension.
