Lecture by Virginia Tuttle: Gardening and Art in America

March 18, 2015; 1:00 p.m.

Farnsworth Art Museum | 16 Museum Street | Rockland | ME | 04841

At the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, a passion for domestic flower gardening swept through America's middle class with all the righteous intensity of today's "buy local," green movement. Gardens were not frequently depicted in works of art until the late 19th century, when they began to appear as a primary theme in American impressionist paintings. This lecture will explore how these paintings pictured ideas popularly associated with gardens at that time, such as a reaction to conditions created by the Industrial Revolution and an American response to the aesthetic principles and ideologies of the English Arts and Crafts movement.

How can YOU gain better access to, and stay apprised of, the legislation that affects you and your business? The Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a Legislative Breakfast, proudly sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank, with the Maine State Chamber at the Farmstead Event Center on Jan 30 from 8 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Chamber member, Megunticook Market, will be providing breakfast. 

 Peter Gore, Vice President of Government Relations at the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, will kick off the morning with a discussion on how area businesses can play a more active and involved role in the legislative process within Maine and nationally. The question to be tackled: "How can you, as a business owner, gain better access to, and stay apprised of, legislation that affects you and your business?" “The idea is that we are connecting business to what they need to know to advocate for themselves and their industry, discussions about the economy, viewpoints of 2014 and what to expect for 2015,” states Staci Coomer, Executive Director of the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce. “They may not be aware of issues that can affect their business, or that can help them. As a chamber, it is great for us to get a pulse on the priority issues and trends that make an impact in our region.” $25 for Members and $30 for Non Members

345 Main Street Rockland, ME 04841

Captured-live HD broadcast from Moscow. In Verona, the rivalry between the Capulets and the Montagues brings bloodshed to the city.

Romeo and Juliet fall madly in love, and are distraught when they realize they belong to rival families...William Shakespeare’s timeless story, written in 1595, is brought to the stage through breathtaking choreography and Sergei Prokofiev’s much-loved score. With its famous melodies, rhythmic variety and universal theme, this story of impossible love is one of the world’s most popular ballets. Libretto by Sergei Prokofiev, Sergei Radlov and Adrian Piotrovsky. Choreography by Yuri Grigorovich. Cast: Alexander Volchkov as Romeo, Anna Nikulina as Juliet.

Directed by Morten Tyldum. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, Charles Dance, Allen Leech, Matthew Beard, Rory Kinnear.

THE MALLETT BROTHERS BAND and NORTH OF NASHVILLE

March 28, 2015; 7:30 p.m.

Strand Theatre, 345 Main Street, Rockland, ME 04841

THE MALLETT BROTHERS are a nationally touring alt-country/rock band from Maine, influenced by a melting pot of musical genres. Their song-driven music holds up to solitary listening, but is equally apt to crank a room full of rockers into high gear. Led by brothers Luke and Will Mallett, it also includes Brian Higgins on drums, Nick Leen on bass, Matt Mills on lead guitar, pedal steel and banjo, and Wally Wenzel on dobro and electric guitar. The duo NORTH OF NASHVILLE, Jay Basiner and Andrew Martell, express their passion for Honky Tonk and the Highwaymen with fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar, harmonica, percussion and Basiner’s lead vocals. Their roots influences, natural chemistry and irresistible appeal are evident on their just released debut album.
