Larry Tackett’s “Colors from the Sea” Opening Reception

Join us 6:30-8:3 p.m. Thursday, March 2 at the Stifel Fine Arts Center for the opening of Colors from the Sea – a photography exhibit featuring the work of Larry Tackett. Opening reception is free and open to the public. Exhibit is on display through April 14. Sponsored by United Bank. Additional program support provided by West Virginia Northern Community College. About the artist: Photographer Larry Tackett spent 32 years diving and photographing the world’s seas along with late wife, Denise. Their more than 6,500 dives included some of the most pristine and remote reef systems on the planet. Tackett’s trips were ones of both vocation and avocation. As a photographer, the oceans provided him limitless subjects in all sizes and colors. Tackett photographs only a portion of the marine animals he finds hiding in reefs. His subject matter then becomes abstract photographic art of vibrant colors and varied textures. As a naturalist, Tackett’s photos of coral reef life have been widely published in books and magazines worldwide. His first book — co-authored by wife Denise — “Reef Life, Natural History and Behaviors of Marine Fishes and Invertebrates” was published in 2002. The Tackett’s newest book, Underwater Photography, A Guide to Creative Techniques and Essential Equipment, was published in 2005.

WJU Performance Art Series: Cabaret

“It was the end of the world…” Willkommen to Berlin! American writer, Cliff Bradshaw, arrives in Berlin in 1929, on the eve of a new year and a new regime in Germany. Centered in the deliciously raunchy and seedy nightclub, the Kit Kat Klub, Cabaret follows Cliff and the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles, navigating their relationship, their dreams and their limitations in a world permeated by politics, economics, and sexuality. It also follows the doomed romance between boarding house owner Fräulein Schneider and her suitor, Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor, which cannot seem to survive in the impending colder, terrifying Germany. The Emcee oversees the action as the Master of Ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub as well as the parallel journey as Nazi Germany rises to power. Based on John Van Druten’s play I Am a Camera and Christopher Isherwood’s Goodbye to Berlin, with lyrics by Fred Ebb and music by John Kander and book by Joe Masteroff. Cabaret is intended for mature audiences. The Performing Arts Series is made possible in part by the generous financial support of the WJU Student Government Association.

Cast Iron Cook Off

Food is the centerpiece of every human celebration and that traditions enhance the festivities.The heart of our Appalachian culture—in fact, of any culture around the world—is food. No matter how far away from home we move or how different our meals today are from the ones we grew up with, when it is time to celebrate a particular holiday, we feel the need “to go home” to the food and traditions our family associated with this occasion. The Cast Iron Cook-Off® helps all of us reconnect with, maintain and celebrate traditions—the recipes, folklore, cooking utensils, ingredients—and adapt them creatively to fit our current lifestyles while keeping in mind recent findings about nutrition and health. Being rooted in tradition doesn’t mean that we must be bound to or stuck in the past. In fact, it’s the opposite. Change is easier and more effective when you consider where others have already gone and what they discovered does and doesn’t work.
