Sea Turtle Cold Stun Lectures - Hyatt Place East End (Peconic Room)
November 13, 2012 - Riverhead

"Cold-stunning” is a process that causes sea turtles to become immobile due to the dramatic decrease in water temperature (usually below 50°F) making it impossible for them to escape the cold water and migrate to warmer water. Once these turtles wash up on our beaches, it is a race for time. A cold-stunned sea turtle may appear to be dead, but may actually be alive! Without proper intervention a cold stunned sea turtle will inevitably die. Please join the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation for a Cold Stunned Sea Turtle Lecture and learn how you can help rescue sea turtles. Last season the Riverhead Foundation recovered 11 cold stunned sea turtles thanks to the public and our volunteer beach patrollers. If you would like to attend a training lecture and learn how to help rescue sea turtles by patrolling your local beach, please register for one of our free lectures. You can register by calling our office at 631.369.9840 or email Additional dates and information can be found at

TIBET HOUSE US PRESENTS: CONTEMPORARY NIRMANAKAYA Buddhist Iconography by Leah and Stan Goldberg - Tibet House US
Through November 14, 2012 - New York

ibet House US has unveiled news of its next highly anticipated gallery exhibit Contemporary Nirmanakaya: Buddhist Iconography by Leah and Stan Goldberg on the heels of its highly successful art exhibition Mystic Nostalgia, which drew summer crowds to the imaginative paintings of Brazilian artist Tiffani Gyatso. This unique body of work will be on display and for sale from September 13 – November 14, 2012, beginning with a special opening reception on September 13, 2012, from 6-8pm ET. A portion of all sales will benefit Tibet House US and its ongoing work to preserve and present Tibetan culture. Stunning in detail, these original contemporary versions of Buddhist tangkas (Tibetan silk paintings with embroidery) and mandalas (geometric, often circular, sacred art), created by Leah and Stan Goldberg, are steeped in tradition. The Goldbergs took the advice of a confidant of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to lead an enlightened existence quite literally and dedicated themselves to traditional Tibetan Buddhist art and how they might reinterpret it for the Western viewer. As they learned more about mandalas and their rich symbolism, they grew enthralled and were soon making their own versions of classic iconic Tibetan images. “We were changing as people and as artists with each piece that we created over the past few years, evolving despite ourselves. Sometimes the painting’s effect on us was gentle and nurturing; sometimes it was more of a drill sergeant approach. We developed a strangely intimate relationship with each iconic image. It was not unusual for them to let us know what precise asana (position) they preferred to assume. Or what they wished to wear,” says Stan Goldberg. Wherever these pieces hang, they are meant to create a feeling of tranquility and peace and help the viewer grow wiser and more compassionate. ABOUT LEAH AND STAN GOLDBERG Husband and wife Leah and Stan Goldberg have been painting together as an art team for more than 20 years. Their works may be found in prominent private collections, such as those of Mick Jagger and Billy Wilder, as well as in major corporate collections, including those of the Bank of America and the Waldorf Astoria. For the past six years Leah and Stan have resided and painted in their home studio in Galisteo, New Mexico. TIBET HOUSE US GALLERY LOCATION AND HOURS Gallery Location: 22 West 15th Street, New York, NY 10011 Gallery Hours: Monday through Friday from 12 to 5 p.m. / P. 212.807.0563 ABOUT TIBET HOUSE US: Tibet House US, established in 1987 at the request of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, is a non-profit educational institution and cultural embassy working to preserve, restore and present Tibet's unique cultural and spiritual heritage by means of a permanent cultural center, with a 2,000-square-foot gallery, library, archives, developing traveling exhibitions, print publications and media productions.

Passed on orally from generation to generation, the sagas are the stories of the early settlement of Iceland by Scandinavians searching for farmland in AD 900. These tales were later collected and written down by unknown authors in the 13th and 14th centuries and are ranked with the world's finest literature. Join art educators from Pratt Institute in a unique series of Saturday afternoon workshops inspired by the landscape and medieval tales of Iceland. Children will "visit" Iceland through stories, watercolors, and photographs from the Saga-Sites exhibition and make a visual record of their journey in drawings, paintings, and sculptures.

'Cabaret Émigré,' a new play by Sophia Romma - The Lion Theater
Through November 18, 2012 - New York City

An emigrant feels like a circus man who is traveling the endless doroga (Russian for "the road.") The sins of your past don't matter and your future is in limbo. It's a human condition that is painted poetically in "Cabaret Émigré," a new play by Sophia Romma, directed by Charles Weldon, to be presented by the Negro Ensemble Company from November 2 to 18, 2012 at the Lion Theater, Theater Row. The play contains ten Lewis Carroll-style testimonials that are told as cabaret acts by a collection of émigrés who are primarily Russian Jews (like the author), but also include émigrés from Latin America and Africa. All of them have no other motive than to entertain each other and their resulting acts are outrageous and macabre, like a journey down the rabbit hole. November 2 to 18, 2012 The Lion Theater, 410 West 42nd Street Presented by The Negro Ensemble Company Wednesdays at 7:30 PM, Thursdays and Fridays at 8:00 PM, Saturdays at 2:00 PM and 8:00 PM, Sundays at 3:00 PM.

Sculpting the Void: The Solo Exhibition of Arcady Kotler - Able Fine Art NY Gallery
Through November 20, 2012 - New York

Sculpting the Void “My work captures a moment when ascent and descent are in equilibrium; when rising and falling, birth and death and other phenomena born of the organic human form and expressed via a natural opposition meet rigid geometric structure.” –Arcady Kotler Arcady Kotler's art investigates the relationship between the natural and the man-made with illusive, suggestive symbolism. The result is a new order that addresses our sense of place, while our very being is deconstructed, reoriented and replaced with a powerful blend of narratives that are both divergent and complementary.
