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.

Sea Turtle Cold Stun Lectures - Quogue Wildlife Refuge
November 14, 2012 - East Quogue

"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 ksotolotto@riverheadfoundation.org. Additional dates and information can be found at riverheadfoundation.org.

Discovering Iceland through Art and Story with Pratt Institute Art Educators - Scandinavia House: The Nordic Center in America
Through November 17, 2012 - Midtown

Hovering just below the Arctic Circle, Iceland is a small island with enormous volcanoes, icy glacial rivers, and ancient lava fields. 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. Enrollment is limited; early registration is encouraged.

'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. Tickets $18 general admission. Box office Telecharge, (212) 239-6200, www.telecharge.com. Running time two hours

The show makes the audience question: Did they achieve this dream? Was it worth it? And, just in time for New Yorkers to decide which president will help them to achieve their goals in the upcoming years. The show runs through Sunday, November 18. Tickets can be purchased at http://telecharge.com/Off-Broadway/Cabaret-Emigre/Overview. The eleven-person cast includes Adriana Sananes, Carolyn Seiff, Allan Mirchin, Randy Schein, Walter Krochmal, Tosh Marks, Grant Morenz, Gwenevere Sisco, DeLance Minefee, Dana Pelevine and Bettina Bennett.

The show will feature the Jazz at Lincoln Center All Stars under the direction of Daryl Waters. Cotton Club Parade opened at City Center on November 18, 2011 for a limited, six-performance run and received unanimous rave reviews. It was hailed as “90 minutes of pure joy” by The Daily News and named Best Jazz Moment of 2011 by The Wall Street Journal. The New York Times said it “made period jazz come to life with a focused intensity and rhythmic savvy that left me open-mouthed with wonder.” In addition to Jared Grimes, Joshua Henry, Adriane Lenox and Amber Riley, the Cotton Club Parade cast includes Alexandria “Brinae Ali” Bradley, Andrew “Dr.Ew” Carter, Kyra Da Costa, Carmen Ruby Floyd, La Tanya Hall, Jeremiah “Supaman” Haynes, Christopher Jackson, Monroe Kent III, Karine Plantadit, T. Oliver Reid and Britton Smith, with Christopher Broughton, C.K. Edwards, Wilkie Ferguson, Chanon Judson, Candice Monét McCall, Marielys Molina, Erin Moore, Monique Smith, Daniel J. Watts and J.L. Williams. Cotton Club Parade is a Broadway-style revue celebrating Ellington’s years at the famed Harlem nightclub in the 1920s and ‘30s, when the joint was jumping with shows featuring big band swing and blues. As in the original revues, Cotton Club Parade will feature singers, dancers and variety acts, with songs by the greatest jazz composers of the time, including Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields (“I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” and “Digga Digga Doo”), a young Harold Arlen (“Stormy Weather,” “I’ve Got the World on a String,” “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea,”), and of course, Duke Ellington (“Rockin’ in Rhythm,” “Cotton Club Stomp,” “Black and Tan Fantasy,” and “Creole Love Call”). Duke Ellington influenced millions of people around the world and at home. During the course of his 50-year career, he composed more than 3,000 songs and played more than 20,000 performances in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Asia. He gave American music its own sound for the first time with popular hits such as “It Don't Mean a Thing if It Ain't Got That Swing,” “Sophisticated Lady,” “Mood Indigo,” “Solitude,” “In a Mellotone,” and “Satin Doll.” Ellington was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1966 and later earned several other prizes, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1969 and the Legion of Honor by France in 1973. The Jazz at Lincoln Center All Stars, under the direction of Daryl Waters, is composed of 15 of the finest jazz soloists and ensemble players, who have performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center and with the country’s top jazz orchestras. Jared Grimes is revolutionizing tap and hip-hop/street jazz. He has danced alongside and for legends such as Gregory Hines, Jerry Lewis, Mariah Carey, and Wynton Marsalis. Jared’s stage credits include Babes in Arms at the Goodspeed Opera House; Twist directed by Debbie Allen; The Scottsboro Boys (workshop), directed by Susan Stroman; and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes directed by John Rando. Jared performed at the Kennedy Center on the occasion of Barack Obama's inauguration, and shortly after again for Ted Kennedy's birthday. He will be featured in the opening program of City Center’s 2012 Fall for Dance Festival. Joshua Henry last appeared at City Center as The Scarecrow in The Wiz. Joshua recently starred as Jake in The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess on Broadway. His performance as Haywood Patterson in the musical The Scottsboro Boys earned him a Tony Award nomination for “Best Performance by a leading actor in a musical.” Other Broadway shows include American Idiot and In the Heights. Adriane Lenox’s many Broadway credits include Doubt (Tony Award), Chicago, Caroline or Change, Kiss Me Kate, Ain't Misbehavin', Dreamgirls and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Off-Broadway, she was seen in Still Life and Dinah Was... (Obie, Audelco Awards). Adriane appeared with Sandra Bullock in the film The Blind Side, and she will appear opposite Robert DeNiro in Red Lights and in Lee Daniels' The Butler. Amber Riley currently stars as Mercedes Jones on Fox’s hit musical comedy “Glee,” which returns for its fourth season this fall. She has performed in numerous theater productions, including Alice in Wonderland, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Into the Woods and Mystery on the Docks with the Los Angeles Opera. Amber received two NAACP Image Award nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on “Glee", as well as two Teen Choice Award nominations for Choice TV: Female Scene Stealer.

He is currently directing and choreographing Chaplin, now playing at the Barrymore Theater. Additionally, Warren directed and choreographed the Broadway productions of A Tale of Two Cities and Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway, and he choreographed the recent Broadway revival of Follies. Cotton Club Parade is made possible, in part, with generous support from the Zegar Family Foundation. New York City Center (Arlene Shuler, President & CEO) has played a defining role in the cultural life of the city for nearly 70 years. It was Manhattan’s first performing arts center, dedicated by Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia in 1943 with a mission to make the best in music, theater and dance accessible to all audiences. Today, City Center is home to many distinguished companies, including City Center’s Principal Dance Company, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater; American Ballet Theatre, New York City Opera, and Manhattan Theatre Club; a roster of renowned national and international visiting artists; and its own critically acclaimed and popular programs. The Tony-honored Encores! musical theater series has been hailed as “one of the very best reasons to be alive in New York.” Dance has been integral to the theater’s mission from the start, and dance programs, including the annual Fall for Dance Festival, remain central to City Center’s identity. City Center is dedicated to providing educational opportunities to New York City students and teachers with programs such as Encores! In Schools and the Young People’s Dance Series. Last year, City Center completed an extensive renovation to revitalize and modernize its historic theater.
