Decompression Chamber Music at OLS
One Longfellow Square – Performing: Haydn Op. 54 No. 2 and Beethoven Op. 18 #6 Decompression Chamber Music arose from the conviction that classical chamber music is as profound and uplifting today as ever. At a time when the audience for the classical is shrinking, it is our hope and purpose to reinvigorate the love and passion of chamber music by presenting a series of informal concert/discussions that will demystify the genre and attract people who might otherwise shy away from it. Series founder Priscilla Taylor sets the scene, " Decompression is about informality, convenience, and gorgeous music. You don't need to know anything about the music to enjoy these one-hour concerts. You get some entertainment, learn a little, interact with the musicians, maybe meet someone new in the audience, and clear your head from your busy day. The concerts are scheduled during "rush hour", so you'll have time to go to dinner afterward, or back to work, or to another concert, equipped with new listening skills."

Gift Circle
Urban Farm Fermentory – In brief, a group of people gather in a circle. No one holds a privileged position – it is a true circle. Everyone take turns naming something they would like to give (anyone in the circle can say, “I would like to receive that,” or “I know someone who needs that,” etc.) On the second round, each person names something he or she would like to receive. In this way, the gifts and needs of everyone in the group become known, people get used to giving and receiving from each other, and, if the group meets repeatedly over time, a community of mutual reliance develops. People experience abundance – both the joy of giving, and the experience of having their needs met. (from Let's do this!! (Free to attend. Drinks at UFF still cost money!)

Book Group Discussion: My Struggle Book 1 by Karl Ove Knausgaard
Portland Public Library – Join PPL's Director of Finance, George Cooper, who will lead this dynamic discussion of My Struggle Book 1 by Karl Ove Knausgård. We asked George what resonated with him about this particular read, here's what he had to say: "There’s something sweetly seductive about Karl Ove’s writing. It’s akin to reading someone’s personal journal, but somehow it feels directly connected to you and your own life. Even the most mundane things are described in minute detail: from going through a checkout counter to smoking a cigarette outside at night. At the same time, his discourse approaches philosophy as he opines on music, art and family relationships. He flows from the micro and personal to the macro and cosmic without missing a beat. All the while you’re in there with him and can’t wait to turn the page. Join us!" Thanks, George!

Marlinespike Seamanship: Art of Sailor’s Decorative Knot Tying
Open Bench Project – This workshop is an introduction to sailor's “Marlinespike Seamanship” decorative knot-tying. Though the word decorative implies that little or no function is served, the craft of decorative knot tying generally combines both form and function. ‘Covering knots’ were used historically to protect blown-glass fishing net floats and ceramic jugs of water taken along on fishing expeditions; the style of knotwork may also help identify who they belong to. Many variations of hitching have embellished handrails, mug handles, and the ship’s tiller or wheel, but you will think of countless ways to incorporate them into your artwork - decorate a picture frame, embellish the ears on pots, display objects on fancy plaited mats… We’ll start by identifying lanyard and button knots, plaits, chains, sinnits, turk's heads, mats, and hitching. I will demonstrate how to tie many versions and assist as you try your hand at the Solomon Bar, Running Turk’s Head, Wall-and-Crown Sinnit, the famous Monkey’s Fist, and more. This workshop covers vocabulary, tools, rope and twine identification, tying of many knots, plus techniques and resources to further what you’ve learned in this workshop on your own. Materials included. No experience necessary. Ages 12 and up Christy Georg has a BFA and MFA in sculpture and more than 20 years experience in the field and is currently Visiting Assistant Professor at Maine College of Art. More at
