Landscapes and Dreams: Photographs by Jim Schlessinger
Within Reach: mystic maps, mudras & mythos by Mona Shiber

December 2 – 30

Reception: Monday December 14, 6-­8 PM

Making art long ago became second nature to photographer Jim Schlessinger. He writes: “it’s as natural as breathing. My work is a visual diary, not of where I’ve been, but of what I’ve been thinking. Reflections considered… metaphors evoked. The recognition of a photograph waiting to be made can seem something like déjà vu, when form and content conspire to speak to something partially buried in my subconscious, and all the more meaningful to me. Through my work I’m trying to be a better, more avid observer of the world and of myself and how the two interact.”

Mix Media artist Mona Shiber’s work draws from a wellspring of symbolic imagery. ‘Within Reach’ is a collection of visual offerings; from emerging lotuses and reliquary altars to interpretive bodily forms. While incorporating mix materials of clay, print, fabric, photo and found object, ‘Within Reach’ is inspired by wisdom traditions, perhaps universal, along a pathless path.

50 college st.
South Hadley

The Mount Holyoke College Department of Theatre Arts closes it’s Fall Semester with Jean-Paul Sartre’s play NO EXIT. Directed by MHC alumna Laura Donovan ’13 this classic play considers what happens when a murderess, a coward, and a seductress are trapped together in hell. This production includes set design by Theatre Arts Professor, Vanessa James, costume design by Phuong Nguyen’ 17, along with light and sound design supervised by Lara Dubin, and an all-female student cast.

For Estelle, Garcin, and Inez, hell isn’t the expected fire and brimstone torture. Instead, they discover that “hell is other people”. While they are forced to endlessly replay the choices that caused them eternal damnation, the three act as each other’s judges and psychological torturers in a cycle that will last for eternity.

Performances: December 3-5 at 7:30 pm and December 6 at 2:00 pm
