Nassau Hall to Hoagie Haven: Princeton Paintings by James McPhillips

“Having worked for McCarter Theatre, I gained an appreciation for Princeton’s people, architecture, university and businesses. All of which have been natural inspiration for my paintings and even my graphic work like the Prince-TON art. After McCarter, I partnered with jane shop (7 Spring St.) to showcase my Princeton work and beyond (currently a Paris series). I am grateful, honored and thrilled that Arts Council of Princeton and The Princeton Public Library asked me to share these pieces for the launch of the second floor renovation.”

Cheick Hamala Diabate: Summer Courtyard Concert

Cheick (pronounced “shake”) Hamala Diabate, is a West African historian in the Griot tradition, and a world-recognized master of the ngoni, a Malian traditional instrument. A sought after performer, lecturer, and storyteller throughout Africa, Europe, Asia and Canada, Cheick Hamala began touring in the U.S.in 1995. Upon coming to the US, Cheick Hamala was intrigued by the resemblance between his beloved ngoni and the American banjo, even sharing tunings and picking styles. He has since learned to play the banjo at a virtuosic level, including collaborations with Bela Fleck. Cheick’s album of banjo duets with Carlin, From Mali to America, was nominated for a Grammy in 2007 for Best Traditional World Music Album.

Eco-Printing

- $85

Eco-Printing or Direct Contact Printing is a process of embedding botanical “stamps” directly from plant material. Working with natural elements such as leaves, blossoms, berries, eucalyptus, flower petals, vegetables, fruit, nuts, and bark – artists will create a naturally made silk scarf or cotton bandana. The “images” and color that will be embodied within the fabric will reflect the actual color that the plant material transfers. Using no chemicals or additives the participants will then learn how to use the plant material to decorate their fabric item. No experience necessary. Materials Fee: A materials fee of $15 will cover all supplies.
