Friday Night: Benefit Success & The Caldron


Here are some photos of the Huge Love for Japan: A Benefit set up.  We neglected to take any photos after the event actually started, but rest assured it was a success!  $600 was raised for the World Vets Japan Animal Disaster Relief Fund!
We screened some animations, people read poems, did some comedy, played some music, sold some vegan baked goods, held an art raffle and generally did their best for a very good cause.  We are very grateful to have been a part of this benefit!

昨日開催された被災地の動物のためのベネフィット、Huge Love for Japan: A Benefitに行ってきました。
このイベントを企画してくれたキャロリンによると、一晩で600ドルが集まったそうです!このお金は全てWorld Vets(世界獣医協会)の特別支援プログラムWorld Vets Japan Animal Disaster Relief Fundに送金されます。

But before we went down to Northampton we sped up to Bellows Falls, VT for our close friend, Ryan's exhibition, The Caldron, opening.  The space, 7sq Gallery at the Works on Paper preservation studio is very nice and the town, which we'd never been to before, is really lovely, with a cute little downtown and an opera house too!
Most of the work Ryan had up we had only seen on his website so it was really wonderful to see them at their full size.  The impression some of this new work leaves really needs to be experienced in person for full effect.  A lot of mesmerizing and disconnecting moments to be had.

そのアニマルベネフィットのイベントの前に駆け足で見てきた友人ライアンの個展、”The Caldron”のオープニング。バーモント州Bellows Fallsという所にあるスタジオWorks on Paper内のギャラリー7sq Galleryに行ってきました。

このBellows Fallsという町、二人とも初めて行く町だったのですがなんだかいい感じに小さくて、でもいろいろ詰まってて(小さなオペラハウスもあって!)とても素敵な町でした。短い間しかいられなかったのが残念。個展開催中にもう一回くらい行けるといいな…。
