WAYZGOOSE: A Celebration of Local Food and Art
In collaboration with Prints and Plants
When: Aug 24 6pm
What: Wayzgoose! Wait what? "Wayzgoose" is a centuries old tradition in which Master Printmakers held a celebration on August 24th for their print shop to mark the transition from long sunlit days to printing by candlelight.
Liz of Prints & Plants is teaming up with the women of the stunning Nambé Mill House to host a Wayzgoose Celebration of all things local art and food as we slowly shift from summer to fall. This is a potluck party welcome to all!
Bring a dish that shows off your favorite local, seasonal food and BYOB (bowls, utensils, and beverages).
Suggested donation of $10:

We will start the night with a candle-lit celebration marking this historic transition of printing by sunlight to candlelight before dancing the night away to live music and creating a community print.

Cryptocrust Readings: James Thomas Stevens, Liz Brindley, Loren Klyne, Marie Claire Bryant
Sometimes we write to establish, re-establish, understand, and fortify our relationship to place. The location of this reading, the Nambe Mill House, is a crossroads of such. At the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, sandwiched between Nambe Pueblo and the historically-Spanish Nambe’ community, on the banks of the Nambe River. The river trickles (occasionally surges) from a reservoir supplied by the snowmelt that every spring accumulates in Ranch Viejo in the Sangres. Rancho Viejo is valley place easily visible from the top of this ridge, a bowl that sustains all of the agriculture, horticulture, grasses, rocks, and darkling beetles that move between all of it, basically the valley supports life in these hills. The ecosystems in our periphery are vast and complex. To write about the networks, flows, cycles, and natural economies that surround us is to emphasize the stories embedded in the land here and to inspire restoration and sociopolitical activism; and then sometimes the written word operates more conceptually, propagating and questioning ecological values and perceptions.
Appealing to both heart and mind, the Mill House has curated an evening of soil, aquifers, forests, grasslands, fisheries, etc.
Join us for an evening of conservation and ecologically-focused literary performance.
Mill House Workshop Series Presents: Face Freak
October 22, 2017 @ 5:30
Developed by Olivia Blanchard (Chicago), Face Freak is about examining the relationship between the 'Self' and the 'Self portrait'. Beauty standards are "out" and self-love is "in". But don't shatter the mirror. Instead, mend your relationship with your face by LOOKING even closer. Utilizing art history, meditation, movement, landscape, and the photographic form, Face Freak will reintroduce you to your own face. Instead of over-analyzing the worthiness of your features - accentuate them.
