Williamstown, MA -- Artsbridge, Inc is hosting its 2014 Summer Showcase on Friday, July 25th from 11:00am-3:00pm at The Buxton School, 291 South Street, Williamstown, MA. The showcase will include exhibitions of the students' artwork and screenings of their short films, as well as performances by the students themselves.  Founded by Massachusetts resident Debbie Nathan, Artsbridge, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that uses art and dialogue to develop constructive partnerships between American, Israeli and Palestinian teens. Each summer, Artsbridge hosts an annual Inter-Cultural Leadership Development Program bringing Israeli, Palestinian and American students together to develop leadership skills, learn to understand and respect each other and to learn how to constructively deal with conflict. By exercising creativity and working together through art and film, the students are better able to respect each other's experiences, empathize with each other and learn how to work together to create solutions to the pressing issues in their communities. Students will then return to their home regions, continuing the work through follow-up seminars and serving as peer leaders in their communities. This leadership program offers the students the necessary support structure to continue their learning process while they remain surrounded by the very conflict and criticism they are working to overcome. Artsbridge partners with established community organizations who serve as host sites, provide training and supervision for their staff, and in doing so, work to create more sustainable change.  The Summer Showcase is a chance for the public to view the art and films that the students produce during the Artsbridge Summer Program and to celebrate the accomplishments of the students. A barbecue lunch will be available.

Lionel Popkin, who is half-Jewish/half-Indian, explores how our origins define who we are. His dances are simultaneously low-tech and lush, questioning and funny. His latest work Ruth Doesn't Live Here Anymore considers the paradoxical legacy of modern dance pioneer Ruth St. Denis, co-founder of the famed Denishawn Company, who brought "Orientalism" to Western dance. Was the iconic "Miss Ruth" a trailblazer, a thief, or something in between? Ruth Doesn't Live Here Anymore features a live performance of an original score by Guy Klucevsek for accordion and violin that evokes both Klezmer and Indian music. Currently Popkin is an Associate Professor of Choreography and Performance at UCLA. "delightfully mercurial" ... "fabulous actions" ... "I enjoy seeing Popkin's shifting from solid to liquid to gas and then to just a flash of wide smile." -Lisa Kraus, The Philadelphia Inquirer

Works from five photographers come together this summer at the Albany Institute. The exhibition Summer Exposure offers five different ventures into photographic vision, media, and artistic conception. Each photographer was given the freedom to select the content for his or her own exhibition. For Hoey and Fels that meant focusing on a single series, and for Blackwood, a single theme "elements of place." The content selected by both Benjamin and Jaeger offer retrospective overviews of each photographer's work. In total, the variety of subject matter and photographic media makes for an exciting summer of discovery.
