The 4:30 p.m. public performance on Wednesday, Nov. 2, takes place in PAC Pealer Recital Hall.
    Spectacular acrobatic artists from Australia’s Gravity and Other Myths present “A Simple Space,” an exhilarating, interactive performance at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17, in the F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre of the Performing Arts Center. Edinburgh Festivals magazine reports, “You will laugh and you will gasp, and you will probably spend some time with your hands over your mouth in awe.”

  • - Garrett College Continuing Education & Workforce Development will host a Regulations Professional Seminar, an Important New OSHA Regulations Update, on Friday, September 9, 2016 from 9 a.m. until 12 noon in Room 205 in the Continuing Education building at the McHenry campus of Garrett College. The OSHA injury and illness records are critical indicators. The OSHA records help identify unsafe patterns and trends in the workplace and to monitor improvements. These records demonstrate how well we are doing in our efforts to keep workers safe and healthy. Accurate OSHA recordkeeping can provide the answers.

    This presentation seminar will provide an overview of 29CFR Part 1904 of the OSHA Recordkeeping Regulation. The presentation will present the basics of the regulation going step-by-step through major sections in the rule. Included will be an activity of injury and illness case scenarios determining if each case should be recorded on the OSHA log based on the principles presented.

    Steve Bisson, presenter of this seminar, is an administrator with the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, Division of Labor and Industry. He has been working with occupational safety and health statistics including providing training for the OSHA recordkeeping regulation for over 26 years. He is the program manager for the Maryland Division of Labor and Industry's Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Injury and Illness Statistics Programs and functions as a principal adviser to the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health agency on the recordkeeping regulation. Bisson is currently part of a work group tasked by federal OSHA to develop a new injury tracking web application.

    For more information or to register for the upcoming seminar, persons may contact Connie Meyers, Director of Professional Development and Contract Training at Garrett College, at 301-387-3084 or connie.meyers@garrettcollege.edu.

    Direct from Barbados, the Carib-pop band Cover Drive appears in a free performance on Thursday, Sept. 1, with a riveting outdoor performance in Delaney Plaza at the FSU Clock Tower. The group first achieved recognition while supporting Rihanna’s 2011 “Loud” tour and Kelly Clarkson’s 2012 “Stronger” tour. The group’s fresh sound blends elements of pop, Caribbean and hip-hop. The U.K. online magazine The Upcoming raved, “As soon as they arrived, Bajan quartet Cover Drive completely took over the main stage, exuding a magnificent energy.”
    The funkadelic musicians of Mexico’s Troker arrive on Thursday, Oct. 6, for a raucous performance in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall in the Lane University Center. The Huffington Post stated that “Troker’s heady mix of free jazz, rock, funk and mariachi music is entirely instrumental, meaning there is no language barrier for foreign audiences to overcome.” Local musicians can experience the band’s distinctive style and the techniques of collective composition and improvisation in a free workshop led by Troker percussionist Frankie Mares. The workshop is limited to 20 participants; prior registration is required.
    On Thursday, Nov. 10, the step dancers of Molodi Live present an intense, interactive performance in Lane Manicur Hall. Using only their bodies as instruments, Molodi blends collegiate stepping, tap, gumboots, beatbox and poetry with guerrilla theatre. Interactive rhythms and crowd participation bridge the gap between the artists and the audience, who become essential participants in the performance.
    Thursday, March 2, 2017, brings contemporary violinist Daniel Davis for a performance in Lane Manicur Hall. With charisma and brilliant technique, Davis and his band offer a performance that takes the violin into the modern musical landscape by fusing elements of hip-hop, R&B, jazz and pop. The Post and Courier declared that “Daniel D. makes the violin cool.”
    A cappella singing group The Filharmonic arrives on Thursday, April 6, for a performance in Lane Manicur Hall. The talented group of young Filipino-Americans first gained national attention in the semi-finals of NBC’s competition show, “The Sing-Off,” and through their appearance in “Pitch Perfect 2” as Team Philippines/Manila Envy. AOL.com reported, “Whether it’s a new rendition of a Top 100 hit like ‘Work’ by Rihanna or mashing up five different tracks into one seamless song, The Filharmonic knows how to put their own signature spin on every piece of music they touch.”
    The performance of Cover Drive is free. Other On the EDGE tickets are $15 and will be available beginning Sept. 1. Tickets may be ordered by calling 1-866-849-9237 or 301-687-3137 or by visiting http://ces.frostburg.edu.

  • - Felted Textiles and Old Masters Style Paintings Showcased in the Allegany Arts Council’s Galleries

    Beginning August 13 and continuing through September 3, the Allegany Arts Council hosts two new exhibitions.

    In the Saville Gallery, “I Felt Like It 2” showcases the art of felting with works from 10 members of the Potomac Fiber Arts Guild of the greater Washington metropolitan region. Works in this exhibition highlight the many creative and colorful ways that wool can be felted in to wearable and decorative art. This is the second exhibition to feature PFAG members. The first, in 2011, was very well received. Since then, making felt has continued to grow as an artistic medium. Workshops and online instructions, along with the ability of enthusiasts to purchase different wool roving on the internet and various Sheep and Wool Festivals has fueled a worldwide felting movement. Because the medium is so adaptive it keeps the artist exploring and engaged with ever new possibilities.

    The ten artists featured in the show are: Joanne Bast, Dalis Davidson, Paige Garber, Roz Houseknecht, Kathy Korin, Grace Mahanes, Elise Miller, Jill Neuman, Zita Simutis and Bev Thoms. Artwork includes a great variety of wearables as well as wall pieces, sculptures, vessels, jewelry and other decorative work.

    In the Schwab Mountain Maryland Gallery is Dan Helsel of Davidsville, PA. Helsel began painting in 1995 after retiring from business. He studied at The Sulkowksi Academy of Fine Art in Canonsburg and has also participated in workshops led by artists James Sulkowski, Tom Nicholas and T.M. Nicholas. His brilliant landscape and still life paintings have been featured in solo and group exhibitions throughout western and central Pennsylvania, earning numerous awards. He is well regarded for possessing a deft artistic touch and style that harkens back to the Old Masters. He paints on oil-primed linen canvas and prepares his own panels from Gesso using a Renaissance formula.

    The opening reception for both exhibitions is Saturday, August 13, from 6-8pm. The Allegany Arts Council is located at 9 North Centre Street in downtown Cumberland, MD and is accessible for wheelchairs.

  • - course, Pet Emergency Preparedness and Pet First Aid & CPR for Small and Large Pets, at the Garrett College Career Technology Training Center in Accident. The class will be held on Wednesday, September 7, 2016, from 6 p.m. until 9:15 p.m.

    Pets enrich many of our lives in more ways than we can count, and are members of the family. In turn, they depend on us for their safety and well-being. The best way to ensure the safety of your entire family is to be prepared with a disaster plan, have knowledge of what to do in case of minor and major inquiries, and have the knowledge in dog and/or cat CPR. Being prepared can help save lives.

    This course is taught by Debbie Daniels, Garrett County resident, who is a Certified Pet First Aid and CPR responder. She grew up around animals, worked in a vet hospital for a year, and currently is the owner of her own business in Garrett County called Your Happy Tails LLC.

    This class is for handlers only - no pets. For additional information contact Terry Beachy, Program Coordinator, at 301-895-4700 or email at terry.beachy@garrettcollege.edu. To register for this course, persons may contact Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development at 301-387-3069.
