WOMEN RISING, Scars and All:  During the past year, under the auspices of Lana Yu’s “What Matters Project“, Marcy B. Freedman led a series of discussion sessions with women aged 55 to 95 years of age, in order to explore the “pros and cons of aging … from the female perspective.”  Marcy has created a spoken-word performance to honor the spirit of these amazing older women, “who have managed to survive and thrive in our youth-obsessed culture.”  The musicians of Skin Against Metal, Nanette Garcia and Maurice Minichino, will provide an ambient soundscape as well as musical interludes.

Call for Artists:  The Arc of Westchester has sent out a call for artists in all mediums for an exhibit in its gallery265, at the Gleeson-Israel Gateway Center, 265 Saw Mill River Road, Hawthorne, NY 10532. on June 1 entitled “Going Green!,” the slogan of which is “Expand creativity while being kind to the environment.”   The artwork must be created using recycled materials.
