Email for info or to register online for her classes.

Don't miss Kara Newhouse's poignant photography of Palestine before it shifts to another of her shows that document her work for peace and justice and global citizenship.  SEE PHOTOS just below this update post.

Coming to the Listening Room soon, Bread for Ducks, in the manner of The Moldy Peaches,  is so full of heart and authentic, I am sure their loyal following will continue to grow.  I am really hoping our dear beloved video volunteer will come this week to post them on the website for posterity.  They make me smile, and I am always reminded of some very important little particle in the heart we can sometimes forget, if you know what I mean, when I see them play.

We have invited Kristie Lou Brigham to bring some clay or any items she is willing to bring out for us...we will be so happy to see her new work and her too! whenever she is able to come out.  She is  a good blog poster so she may give us some notice or just surprise us when the mood hits and opportunity allows.

COMING SOON!  Jessica Marchuck, Metalsmithing of Jewelry and Felting of bags.  Beautiful!

After four years and many setbacks our persistance is finally looking like it will carry Rick and I through this house project in Arlington.  If any interest shows we are nearing completion at long last!  The flying house refers to that we had Scott Paden's design built in a factory, then craned in in six sturdy parts to form the two and half story structure.  THAT was the easy part.  What came after has been quite a challenge.

Photo Exhibit Highlights Middle East Resistance

As images of resistance movements across the Middle East and North Africa capture global audiences, Millersville native Kara Newhouse brings Lancaster a view into political and cultural resistance that Palestinians have sustained for decades in the face of Israeli occupation, colonization and apartheid.

In February 2010 Kara traveled to the West Bank to teach art to children at a community organization in Nablus. The generosity and strength of the Palestinian friends she made motivated Kara to spend the summer of 2010 documenting life under occupation as an online reporter and photographer. As Palestinians continue to hold weekly nonviolent protests calling for an end to house demolitions, settlement expansion and construction of the illegal separation wall, Eyes on Resistance captures the courage and passion of those resistant Palestinians as well as Israeli and international activists standing up against injustice.

A self-trained photographer with a background in cultural anthropology, Kara's work as a journalist and youth educator has led her to the Middle East, Central America, and most recently, India. Her writing and photography can also be found at Rogue Anthropologist.
