“That Old Gospel Ship” Food & Fund Raiser for “Labor of Love” Food Pantry at Pembroke Library’s Monthly Chantey Sing

November 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Pembroke Library 221 Old County Road
Pembroke, ME 04666 United States

Many old hymns and Gospel songs use the imagery of the sea. There are even “biblical” chanteys of Noah’s Ark. In hymns the ship, on its perilous voyage across the stormy sea of life, struggles to reach the Heavenly shore. The sailor turns from sin to be “Anchored in Love Divine.” You can hear these wondrous songs, most with easily learned choruses for audience singing, on Wednesday, November 14th, starting at 6:30 PM, when the Pembroke Library’s monthly Chantey Sing presents “That Old Gospel Ship.” The singing will be led by Kris Paprocki and Stephen Sanfilippo, each of whom is a long time “church singer.” Kris is currently researching hymns composed in the late 1700s by Reverend James Lyon, of Machias. Stephen is recognized nationally for his formal historical work on the religious poems and hymns of 19th century seafarers. Admission by donation of Boxed or Canned Food, or Monetary Donation, or both, for the “Labor of Love” Food Pantry.

StudioWorks Artist-in-Residence Hannah O'Hare Bennett will be hosting an artist talk and open studio at StudioWorks. Bennett, who lives and works in Madison, Wisc., has been at StudioWorks for an 8-week term, designed for artists to focus on outreach and education in the community in addition to their studio practice. Bennett is a fiber artist and papermaker who makes sculpture and installations. As part of her practice, Bennett often teaches fiber, surface design and paper-making techniques. At StudioWorks, Bennett has offered workshops in embroidery and card weaving for members of the community of all ages, and had many drop-in visitors to her working studio. As part of her outreach, Bennett will have worked with students from Perry Elementary School, Shead High School, and Calais High School by the conclusion of her residency term. These opportunities allow students to meet a working artist, be introduced to new hands-on art-making methods, and see contemporary work-in-progress in the studio. Bennett's artist talk is free and open to the public. The StudioWorks program, now in its sixth year, is an initiative of the Tides Institute & Museum of Art.
