******************************************************

The Knitting and Crocheting Circle will meet on Saturday, October 13, 10 – noon

******************************************************

The topic for the Artists Discussion Group Saturday, October 13, 2 – 4 is “Unknowing”. Unknowing makes it possible for anything to happen. When we don’t know, when we don’t have any expectations or fixed ideas, we truly begin to see what is actually there.

Artists of all genres and non-artists are welcome to join in the discussion.

*****************************************************

Sunday, October 14, 3 – 6 pm, writer Joelle Morrison will be reading from her book “Stories from the Lower Eastside”. The book is a series of short stories with each chapter dedicated to a friend, neighbor and/or acquaintance of Joelle’s from the “old neighborhood”. They are sometimes amusing, other times tragic but always an interesting account of the characters that inspired Joelle to write their stories.

Light refreshments will follow the program.

This program was made possible by a grant from DCA and administered by Staten Island Arts.

*****************************************************

Our next exhibit will be “Fractals, Math, and Other Forbidding Topics”. This show will run from Saturday, October 20 through Sunday, November 18. Work can be brought to the gallery Monday and Tuesday, October 15 and 16, 6 – 8. Artists can pick up work that was displayed in the “Faces, Places, and Spaces” show on those dates.

Opening Reception, Saturday, October 20, 6 – 9

SICC Associate Members are invited to participate in this exhibit.

*We are happy to report that sales of artwork from recent shows has been great. Nine pieces  from the “Dog Daze of Summer” and three from the “Faces, Places, and Spaces” shows were sold.
