AWAKENING THE WOMEN'S FIRE
Thursday, December 5 THROUGH Sunday, December 29
Awakening the Women’s Fire is a pottery collection that teaches the universal importance of women. Oneida tradition tells that women have maintained the role of firekeepers, clan holders, and life givers. Stephenie Muscavitch VanEvery explores these roles, as well as other titles, and their evolution. Indigenous knowledge has been folded and shaped into the clay, with emerging bodices relating experiences of the contemporary feminine and the ancient matriarchs of earlier times. The vessels take on characteristics of prehistoric and historic pottery with round bases, castellations, geometric shapes, and effigies. Using earthenware or stone ware, each piece is hand built, formed with the pinch pot and coil method, and pit and/or kiln fired. As the artist’s hands caressed the earth just as her ancestors did, igniting cellular memory, recalling the many different roles women play now and throughout history, the sanctity of women is recalled, their fire is awakened.
Stephenie Muscavitch VanEvery is a multimedia artist, Iroquois Potter, and Oneida Language and Culture instructor in Oneida, Wisconsin. She received her B.A. in Education with a concentration in Broadfield Social Studies from Alverno College, 2003. From her youth she began to develop an interest in the arts, specifically tied to her family and Oneida heritage. She learned sewing from her grandmother, Evadna Muscavitch, Corn Husk Doll making from Budgie Manders, Silversmithing and Raised Beadwork from Coleen Bins, and Computer Graphics from Thomas Skenandore. Stephenie continued her education at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay, receiving her Masters Degree in Educational Leadership, 2011.

BEAUTIFUL MINDS
Thursday, January 2 THROUGH Sunday, January 26
Beautiful Minds "Dyslexia and the Creative Advantage" an Art exhibit that celebrates the creative gifts and talents of children and adults with dyslexia!
“Many people have the wrong idea about what dyslexia actually is — in ‘Beautiful Minds’ we are using art, among other things, to show that one of the strengths people with dyslexia have is their creative artistic talents.
“The exhibit will illuminate many of the misconceptions of dyslexia, educate those who aren’t familiar with it and empower those who have this most common learning disability. It also shines a light on the heightened creative skills that are so commonly found in people who have dyslexia,” The exhibition also features artwork from students and adults with dyslexia along with family members and friends who will create works of art as an expression of love for them.
“In school we gauge intelligence by one’s ability to read. Children who struggle to learn to read feel alone as they struggle to master what comes easily for so many. ‘Beautiful Minds’ is a place of acceptance while opening the minds of parents, educators, family and friends to the hidden potential that goes unrecognized in the 10 to 20 percent who struggle with dyslexia.
Jayne Black, Mrs. US continental is spending her year promoting her platform Beautiful Minds "Dyslexia in the Creative Advantage". Jayne was diagnosed as an adult with dyslexia and also has a son with dyslexia.
Let's create a world where children with dyslexia can stand proud and shine bright!
