Webb is a multi media artist whose work was chosen to adorn the UMass Fine Arts Center entryway in 2012.
She says "All of my artwork is an attempt to express a nascent sense of wonder. It is grounded in the earliest, nearly forgotten childhood awareness of life as a mysterious, spiritual situation. Always, I desire to make objects that resonate with their own truth, that stand on their own as presences, meaningful signifiers of the wonder we have always known, yet forgotten or not seen in our haste and distraction."
There will be an artist reception on Sunday, September 21, from 3 - 5 pm.
The Feldenkrais Method is a gentle, innovative technique for people of all ages that allows participants to observe their own movements, notice unnecessary tension, and improve overall coordination.

Kids' Jam engages and challenges the early elementary child and builds on early music experiences to prepare for formal instrument lessons later on. Children attend with parent or caregiver, to create a community of families and support a continuity of music-making and learning at home. Emphasis is on singing, both traditional songs and original songs by Kids' Jam creator Lui Collins - many nature-based celebrations of the season - and drumming, as well as developmentally appropriate solfege and rhythm play, and lots of fun and active singing games to take advantage of the lovely boisterous energy of this age group!
Three 10-week sessions are offered in Fall, Winter and Spring. Tuition for the 10 week session includes two copies of a professionally-recorded CD, and a Songbook with all lyrics and melodies, plus guitar chords and a reference guide for the Curwen Hand Signs we learn with the solfege. First child $180, sibling $100. Summer session is 6 weeks, with tuition of $115/60 including all materials. Registration fee $10 for new families only. Note that while Kids' Jam is designed primarily for the 5-7 year-old child, younger sibs may be included on an individual basis, so please ask if interested. Financial aid is available, so please ask if that would be helpful to allow you to attend.
