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. . .

The evening will be a casually structured conversation hosted by Gail Topping and Deborah Pendrey.
It is not required to bring something to share or contribute to the conversation, if listening is your gig. ALL WELCOME.
Please note and honor that it is our intention for this Salon Series to be a place to get ‘heart’ nourishment for the many challenges we face, NOT cite problems and resolve issues.
Not required, but a donation and beverage to share is appreciated. The Salon will begin promptly at 7 p.m. and seating is limited. We encourage early arrival with doors opening at 6:45.
