All are welcome to participate -- feel free to invite a friend or neighbor who may be living with loss -- of a loved one, a marriage, a job or career, or a dream.

    - This exhibition features a private collection of approximately 30 examples of early Newcomb Pottery within the dining room of the Log House—Gustav Stickley’s own home, which he not only designed, but also built and lived in from 1910-1917. The exhibition highlights the work of a dozen different designers from Newcomb Pottery, which was founded in 1895 as part of the H. Sophie Newcomb Memorial College, the women’s coordinate of Tulane University in New Orleans. This exhibition will complement the nearby Princeton University Art Museum exhibition Women, Art, and Social Change: The Newcomb Pottery Enterprise (May 7 to July 10, 2016).

    The exhibition will be on view during all tours of the Log House, which depart Thursday-Sunday at 12:15, 1:15, 2:15, and 3:15, and Special Interest Tours will provide an opportunity for in-depth exploration of the exhibition.

  • | 12:00pm - 1:00pm | Religious Events, Grief and Loss
    - GRIEF AND LOSS – MAY 22 & 29, AND JUNE 5
    A Painting Table small group journey will be held on Sundays, May 22, May 29, and June 5, from 12 – 1 pm, in the Parish House of St. Bernard’s Episcopal Church. This Painting Table group (inspired by the book by artist and writer Roger Hutchison) will be around the themes of grief and loss. Come and be present with God, loss, hope, and one another as we make art. This is not about the artistic end product, but the experience of using art to explore and tell our stories. All are welcome to participate -- feel free to invite a friend or neighbor who may be living with loss -- of a loved one, a marriage, a job or career, or a dream. For more information (or for reassurance that you don't need to be an artist) please contact the Rev. Beth Rauen Sciaino, priest@stbernardsnj.org or 908-766-0602.

  • | 11:45am - 12:45pm | Special Interest, Parkinson's Disease, PD, Exercise
    - The Dancing for Parkinson’s program offers free weekly dance classes to individuals with Parkinson’s disease and their care partners. Individuals with Parkinson's are encouraged to remain active. The class is designed to encourage and develop coordination, musicality, spatial awareness, creativity and technique. The dance class facilitates cognitive stimulation and social interaction, while also focusing on stability and gait.

    The class begins seated and participants are guided through a progressive warm-up and a series of sequences that encompass the principals and qualities of dance. The class advances to standing for those who feel comfortable. For those not comfortable or able to stand, seated modification for each exercise is provided.

    The class follows the Dance for PD model, which was founded in Brooklyn in collaboration between the Brooklyn Parkinson's Group and the Mark Morris Dance Group. David Tamaki is the instructor for the program and is trained in the Dance for PD method and is a recipient of the Stanley J. Wertheimer Fellowship Program, which provides continued development and mentorship to qualified instructors.
