The Butterfly: A Radical Act of Community Storytelling

Join us, as we radically change minds and hearts at transformative, uncensored adult storytelling concerts.

 

The Butterfly is a FREE community storytelling concert held the 4th Tuesday of each month at our Collingswood location.

Storytelling is the first art form.  From its inception on the continent of Africa, storytelling has been steeped in communal ethos.  It is an amalgamated event of teller and audience.  It teaches lessons, empowers voice and maintains societal values.  It makes us laugh, cry, gasp, hold on and release — It connects.

June 26:  Sink or Swim (beach stories, new adventures, stepping out with courage)

Heritage Preservation Days

Heritage Preservation Days is a digitization project that provides the opportunity to preserve family heritage through digitization.

Join Perkins Center at GCLS Glassboro Public Library! 

 

 

 

Community members are welcome to bring in family heirlooms that relate to foodways and cultural food traditions such as, aged photographs, negatives, heirloom cooking instruments, handwritten recipes, handcrafted pottery, back-dated news articles, traditional herbal remedies, heritage farming and gardening tools, passed-down cook books, ancestral holiday linens and artwork.

There will also be a Sharing Station, where participants can tell stories associated with their treasures. Participants may also choose to have the stories recorded in the Oral History Booth.

Attendees will be gifted a high-quality digital copy of their artifacts and stories as family keepsakes to pass down to next generations. The photographs will be scanned, the artifacts will be photographed, and the stories will be recorded by audio. Each entry will be documented by metadata.

We anticipate the collections to be housed on the NJ Digital Highway, once it is established. Some will be shared on Perkins’ and funders’ websites. With permissions of the owners, selected items will be showcased at the Tastefully South Jersey Exhibition that will be held in Collingswood July through August. 

This project is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.

Photography 36 Awards Exhibition

Featuring Three Outstanding Artists in Photography

On View March 10- April 7, 2018

Meet the Artists Reception: Second Saturday, March 10, 2018  6 – 9pm

 

Works by:

                                                           

Carlos Chan– originally from Manila, Philippines and currently residing in Philadelphia, Pa., “I primarily shoot urban landscapes because I am most at home in cities and because I find them endlessly fascinating. I like making sense of how they work, of what holds them together, of what makes them tick. The sheer organization alone that goes into them is, to me, a source of wonder and beauty”.

 

 

 

 

Philip “Dutch” Bagley – “Photography can never grow up if it imitates some other medium. It has to walk alone; it has to be itself”, from Berenice Abbott. This quote has encouraged my visual sense of direction…my pre-visualization of the final image as I am viewing and capturing the scene; see it, capture it, develop it and present it”.

 

 

Stuart Lehrman,” My work is inspired from the natural and man made phenomena I observe in the world around me. The historical context of my work is that of Abstract Expressionism, Post-painterly Abstraction, Color Field painting and Minimalism.”

 

 

 

 

Philip Carroll, Curator and Karen Chigounis, Executive Director selected each artist, “For their level of professionalism and mastery of the medium through Photography”, which has been the mainstay of Perkins Center for the Arts Photography Annual Exhibition, now in its 37th year.

 

This exhibition is presented through a grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, A Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts and Discover Jersey Arts.
