    The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center : Poemumbles – 30 years of Susan Weil’s poem/images
    Mar 28 all-day

    The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center :

    Poemumbles – 30 years of Susan Weil’s poem/images

    SusanWeilApril2000forweb

    January 30 – May 23, 2015
    Opening Reception – Friday, January 30, 5:30-8:00pm
    With a gallery talk by exhibition co-curator

    Susan Weil’s poemumbles are a unique form of poetic expression that explore the limitless potential and fluidity of her thoughts in visual and verbal form. Weil has always had an affinity for words. Ever since her father Leonard read Chaucer and Joyce to her as a child, words have given Weil a unique way of looking at the world. When Susan met her Swedish dealer Anders Tornberg in 1977, she began sending him poems and accompanying images. Over the course of the next six years, Weil sent some 5,000 poemumbles to Anders in Lund, Sweden, from high on the 18th floor of her Chinatown apartment.

    On May 11th, 1984, Anders received a poem, a delicate watercolor cup of coffee, and a note declaring Weil’s intention to write and send to Anders a daily poemumble. By 1986 Susan was making three versions of her poemumbles, one large version for her notebooks, and postcard sized versions for Anders, and for her dear friend and publisher of livres d’artiste, Vincent FitzGerald.

    Today, 30 years and over 10, 930 poemumbles later, Weil has stayed true to her intention. No subject is too small or grand for a poemumble. One day Weil might elucidate the experience of seeing a painting, form a play on words, evoke a distant memory or dreamscape, whisper murmurs of the sea, or the pull of the moon. The poemumbles have also been place for Weil to weave her thoughts and images with past creative masters. Da Vinci, Botticelli, Rumi, Picasso, Henrik Ibsen, Gertrude Stein, ‘Papa Matisse’ as Susan fondly calls him, and her lifelong inspiration and creative co-collaborator ‘Jimmy Joy,’ James Joyce have all made guest appearances in Weil’s poemumbles.

    Earlier poemumbles of delicate pencil drawings and watercolors, rubber stamped with the date, evolved into collages of magazine images and textual snippets. As Weil’s studio work has changed so too have the poemumbles. Today, Weil incorporates found images from the vast trove of the Internet into her daily poems, and has made several plexi-glass works inspired by earlier poemumbles.

    FEATURING STEVE COHEN, CLARINET
    March 28, 2015

    7:30p

    The HSO performs three of the most pivitol, historic works of the operatic, concerto, and symphonic canon – the overture to the first great German opera, Weber’s Der Freischütz, Mozart’s sublime final instrumental concerto, and Brahms’ Symphony No. 1 in c minor, a work 14 years in the making. Guest artist clarinetist Steve Cohen has graced the stage for the past 35 seasons as Principal Clarinet of the Brevard Music Center Festival Orchestral.

    Cohen inspired awe with his easy command of the concerto’s (Mozart) wide register leaps, his fluent scales and arpeggios in the finale and the suave, silken statement of the landmark melody in the Adagio.
    –New Orleans Times-Picayune.

    Program:
    Weber- Overture to Der Freischütz
    Mozart- Clarinet Concerto

    BUD HARRIS & MASSIMILLA HARRIS

    Massimilla Harris, Ph. D. and Bud Harris, Ph. D. are practicing Jungian analysts in Asheville, North Carolina. As graduates of the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, they have worked extensively with people on relationship problems, personal issues, dreams and individuation for many years. The need for respecting and healing the feminine in ourselves and our culture has been a key area of focus for them. Together and separately, they have authored nine books and have lectured widely. www.budharris.com

     

    This is a powerfully moving book that goes beyond gender roles into the soul of the archetypal feminine, how it has been damaged and traumatized, and how this condition affects us.

    The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center : Poemumbles – 30 years of Susan Weil’s poem/images
    Mar 30 all-day

    The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center :

    Poemumbles – 30 years of Susan Weil’s poem/images

    SusanWeilApril2000forweb

    January 30 – May 23, 2015
    Opening Reception – Friday, January 30, 5:30-8:00pm
    With a gallery talk by exhibition co-curator

    Susan Weil’s poemumbles are a unique form of poetic expression that explore the limitless potential and fluidity of her thoughts in visual and verbal form. Weil has always had an affinity for words. Ever since her father Leonard read Chaucer and Joyce to her as a child, words have given Weil a unique way of looking at the world. When Susan met her Swedish dealer Anders Tornberg in 1977, she began sending him poems and accompanying images. Over the course of the next six years, Weil sent some 5,000 poemumbles to Anders in Lund, Sweden, from high on the 18th floor of her Chinatown apartment.

    On May 11th, 1984, Anders received a poem, a delicate watercolor cup of coffee, and a note declaring Weil’s intention to write and send to Anders a daily poemumble. By 1986 Susan was making three versions of her poemumbles, one large version for her notebooks, and postcard sized versions for Anders, and for her dear friend and publisher of livres d’artiste, Vincent FitzGerald.

    Today, 30 years and over 10, 930 poemumbles later, Weil has stayed true to her intention. No subject is too small or grand for a poemumble. One day Weil might elucidate the experience of seeing a painting, form a play on words, evoke a distant memory or dreamscape, whisper murmurs of the sea, or the pull of the moon. The poemumbles have also been place for Weil to weave her thoughts and images with past creative masters. Da Vinci, Botticelli, Rumi, Picasso, Henrik Ibsen, Gertrude Stein, ‘Papa Matisse’ as Susan fondly calls him, and her lifelong inspiration and creative co-collaborator ‘Jimmy Joy,’ James Joyce have all made guest appearances in Weil’s poemumbles.

    Earlier poemumbles of delicate pencil drawings and watercolors, rubber stamped with the date, evolved into collages of magazine images and textual snippets. As Weil’s studio work has changed so too have the poemumbles. Today, Weil incorporates found images from the vast trove of the Internet into her daily poems, and has made several plexi-glass works inspired by earlier poemumbles.
