Last night (3/14/11) Lucubrations held its first Open Mic since our inception. The turnout exceeded expectations and there were acts ranging from passionate songs, angry poetry, and hilarious comedy (as opposed to unfunny comedy).
The event was held in the Comiskey Center Black Box Theater, giving the perfect atmosphere for an Open Mic. The atmosphere was made better by creative seating placement and stage design by the talented Justine Johnson who arrived very early to setup. Lucubrations would like to thank the Fine Arts Department and Professor Asbury for their permission to use the space.
Professor Banach made delicious pulled pork for sandwiches and his famous homemade bread which met with great approval from all.
We hope to plan more Open Mics and events in the future thanks to all the postive feedback.

"Perfect From Now On" - is a Fine Arts Lecture Series Event, a collaboration of the Saint Anselm College Fine Arts Department and Alva deMars Megan Chapel Art Center.
Artist Christopher Mir will give a talk about his paintings, his working process and influences, as well as the psychological and philosophical intentions in the work.
"Christopher Mir's paintings present a world populated by mythic figures, creatures, machines, and fragments of ambiguous forms. These elements are often positioned within idealized landscapes in dream-like circumstances. Mir’s paintings invite us to experience a series of paradoxical relationships and unsettling juxtapositions. His figures and landscapes are drawn from specific sources yet remain anonymous; his painting style is relatively tight and refined, but his works are emotionally evocative and resonant. Mir’s narratives are equally complex and replete with provocative dichotomies such as, the mystical versus the physical, the spiritual versus the secular, and the primal versus the futuristic."
-- from an essay by Joanna Marsh, curator, The Smithsonian

CHANGE OF DATE!
The 3rd Workshop (moved to Tuesday, December 7th @4-6pm) will focus on Sketching from Life and will include a Model. This will be co-run by Will Suglia and Lauren Miller.
Back by popular demand, we will have a number of printmaking, sewing, screenprinting and image transfer stations set up for one last chance for those of you who haven't tried your hand as of yet!
It's just around lunch time, so we'll have some refreshments on hand and it'd be great if anyone would like to bring additional snacks, drinks, tunes.
