Salon Series II: Friday, April 10

Theme: "Elements"

“A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation.”

SALON SERIES II is Friday, April 10th, 7 to 9 p.m. at the Ojai Valley Green Coalition Resource Center – 206 N. Signal St., Suite S, in downtown Ojai.
In honor of Earth Day, April's Salon theme is 'ELEMENTS'.


Earth, Air, Water, Fire, and Aether provide the sparks of life, moving around and through us. The 98 elements of the periodic table dance an infinite dance to form everything we touch in this world, and indeed, the universe.
Everyday life in Southern California engenders an acute awareness of the classical elements: the ever present danger of fire, either far too little or too much water, our need for clean air, our quaking and sliding earth, and the mysterious all penetrating element aether.
In this salon we reawaken our awareness of the elements in our life by sharing our stories, favorite words, images . . .

Salon Series III: Friday, May 8

Next Salon Slated for Friday, May 8.
Theme: "Light and Dark"

“A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation.”
 
Bosse_Salon_de_dames.jpgSALON SERIES III is Friday, May 8th, 7 to 9 p.m. at the Ojai Valley Green Coalition Resource Center – 206 N. Signal St., Suite S, in downtown Ojai.

In honor of the International Year of Light, May's Salon theme is 'Light and Dark'.
The wonder of the night sky has been a constant since the dawn of civilization. It has inspired countless generations, poets, scientists and dreamers.
In Science, darkness is the absence of light, but can we have light without the dark? The night atmosphere chemically goes through a self-cleaning process, so our daylight atmosphere is purer.
In Art, dark and light use each other to create a picture that looks real. This contrast is very important, and the artist has to learn how to work with both.
In Psychology, the dark or shadow informs the light or consciousness. This consciousness or wisdom is dependent on the exploration of the invisible or the dark.
Where are you on the spectrum? Come share in the medium that speaks to you – spoken word, image, object, song. . .
