She will record and present these stories and oral histories, via a community cookbook, audio and visual documentation.
SILVER SOCIAL Club with your charming hostess, Lexa Walsh
We will create a temporary “senior club”, (open to any self-identified person over 50), with a series of activities involving meals, recipes, interviews, workshops, and activities that lend themselves to storytelling. I will photograph and record those stories; preserve and disseminate them via a community cookbook, a website, and an exhibition. I want to offer a voice to members of the community, and value and preserve these voices by being an eager listener and documentarian. The website, cookbook and exhibition will bring together different communities of NSB together in one place, suggesting the possibility of a group identity. All activities will take place either at Harris House, at your homes, or at other locations TBD. For details contact Lexa at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit her blog at http://acacommunityartist.tumblr.com/

The first musical of the Little Theatre’s 2013-14 season is a perceptive take on the passage through mid-life and all the glamorous and not so splendid phases of forgetfulness, squeaky knees, dimming vision and medical exams. It is a hilarious and honest musical about the concerns and mysteries that we face as we age (such as dating again, bodies giving way to gravity, the increase in ‘senior’ moments). “Mid-Life! The Crisis Musical” written by Bob Walton and Jim Walton allows audiences to laugh at these situations.
Directed by Patti Earl with Musical Direction by Dr. Rick Martorano and Choreography by Karin Jenkins, this show reminds the audience that while the journey may be distressing, we have a lot of company.
“Mid-Life! The Crisis Musical” runs September 20 through 29 at the Little Theater of New Smyrna Beach at 726 Third Avenue, Beachside, NSB. Performances are Friday the 20th, Saturday the 21st and Thursday the 26th, Friday the 27th and Saturday the 28th at 8 pm and Sunday the 22nd and 29th at 2 pm. Tickets are $20 adults, $19 seniors and $10 for students under 18. For tickets and more info, call 386-423-1246 or visit the website at www.nsbplayers.org
Exhibition dates: October 5-26, 2013
Artist Talk: Friday, October 18, 11am
New Smyrna Beach, FL –– Arts on Douglas will present Angels and Demons, a solo exhibition featuring the sophisticated abstract paintings of Orlando based artist, Giuseppe Corazzina. The exhibition will be on view from October 5, 2013 through October 26, 2013 with an opening reception on Saturday, October 5 from 4-7 pm, and an artist talk on Friday, October 18 at 11am. Both events are free and open to the public.
Angels and Demons is Giuseppe Corazzina’s third solo exhibition at Arts on Douglas. The show features Corazzina’s most current body of large and small scale abstract paintings that explore his personal symbolism used to refer to the sacred realm. Corazzina explains: “While creating this new collection, I was intrigued to face a fascinating, and mysterious theme, which involved entering a world of emotions and sensations. I was guided by two relatively simple questions regarding angels and demons: Who are they, and what do they symbolize?”
Angels and demons are common figures and symbols found in many religious traditions, folk tales, artifacts, and popular culture. These figures often adhere to a strict division between good and evil forces; however, this dualism was not always so strictly defined in antiquity. Indeed, the word “angel” in Greek angelos, meaning “messenger,” and the Greek word daimon, meaning “spirit guide” were used interchangeably. It was thought that everyone possessed a personal daimon, angel, or messenger. These messengers acted as intermediaries between humanity and the divine, uniting two separate dimensions of being into a new whole. Because these messengers bring messages from afar or beyond, from the realms where consciousness may not go, they can be both frightening and tempting at the same time.
For Corazzina, art is a synthesis of opposing modes of being. While creating this collection of paintings, the artist explains “I discovered inside myself the presence of lots of angels, but also more than just a few demons.” Conscious of this experience of being, painting becomes a process of renewal and discovery, driving him to fervently research techniques, concepts, and themes from art history, and to experiment with color and abstract form. Corazzina’s use of vibrant blocks of color in various intensities and his evenly paced brushwork provide evidence of his training in classical painting techniques. While his paintings are largely abstract representations of the imagination, recognizable objects do emerge.
Giuseppe Corazzina was born in Padua, Italy. He holds a PhD from Teacher College, Venice, Italy, a MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, Italy, a BA in fine arts from the State Art Institute in Padua, Italy, and restoration certification from Ca’d’oro, Venice Italy. He is skilled in the use of acrylic, oil, tempera, watercolor, as well as mosaic, encaustic and fresco painting. He has taught studio arts courses and fresco workshops at Cornell Museum, Crealdé School of Art, University of Central Florida, Rollins College, and Seminole State University. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe. Corazzina’s work is included in the permanent collections of the St. Antonio Cathedral in Padua, Italy, Albignasego Church, Museo San Teodoro in Rome, the Church of Malawi in Africa, and the University of Central Florida.
In addition to the month long exhibition, Arts on Douglas will hold an Artist Talk with Giuseppe Corazzina on Friday, October 18 at 11am.
The opening reception and gallery talk are free and open to the public.

The Marine Discovery Center (MDC) hopes to draw public attention to the current water-quality issues and concerns of the Indian River Lagoon (IRL) this month in two separate public events.
MDC will host an IRL Public Forum in New Smyrna Beach from 6-8:30 p.m., on Sept. 26. A panel of experts will address current challenges in the lagoon and resulting mortality issues for estuarine species.
The forum will be followed two days later by a “Hands Across the Lagoon” event, scheduled from 9-10 a.m., on Saturday, Sept. 28.
An IRL National Estuary Program initiative, “Hands Across the Lagoon” encourages citizens in all five counties along the IRL to link hands for 15 minutes as a show of support for protecting the lagoon. This event will be held simultaneously across eight causeways spanning the lagoon’s 156 miles.
“The Indian River Lagoon and our surrounding estuaries are changing before our eyes,” said Chad Truxall, managing director at the MDC. “This is our community, where we work, live and play and it’s the cradle of the ocean. We hope citizens will participate in these two events to show their support for North America’s most biologically diverse estuary.”
The forum on Sept. 26, will be held at the Brannon Center located at 105 South Riverside Drive in New Smyrna Beach. The event is open to the public at no charge.
A panel of speakers, including research specialists in sea grasses, algal blooms, oysters, marine mammals, as well as representatives from the commercial and recreational fishing industry, will present information and discuss the issues affecting the IRL. An open discussion with the public will follow the presentations.
Presenters scheduled for the IRL forum include: Dr. Florian Koch and Dr. Chris Gobler of Stony Book University (N.Y.) on the presence of brown tide in the IRL; Lori Morris of St. Johns River Water Management District on seagrass loss; Dr. Linda Walters of the University of Central Florida on oyster beds and shellfish; Wendy Durden of Hubbs-SeaWorld and Blair Mase-Guthrie of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on deaths of manatees and dolphins; the Coastal Conservation Association on impacts of commercial and recreational fishing; and Troy Rice of the IRL National Estuary Program, on possible citizens’ action.
The “Hands Across the Lagoon” event on Saturday, Sept. 28, will take place on the South Causeway (SR 44). Participants will join hands across the South Causeway Bridge as a show of support for the health of North America’s most diverse estuary while paddlers will also link together across the lagoon under the bridge.
MDC hopes public support will demonstrate to municipal, state and national leaders community concern for the estuary.
Free parking for “Hands Across the Lagoon” will be available in New Smyrna Beach on Canal Street, Palmetto Street, Live Oak Street, the Brannon Center and at Callalisa Creek.
