Mother Lode Storytellers Guild Presents:

Calaveras Story Swap at Manzanita Arts Emporium

Sunday afternoon, 4 – 6 pm

Address: 1211 S. Main St., Angels Camp, CA  – phone: 209-728-6171

You are invited to the Mother Lode Storytelling Guild’s every-other-month story swap at the Manzanita Writers Press gallery, Manzanita Arts Emporium. Bring friends and family for a rollicking afternoon of telling stories that take off on their own threads. You can tell a story, or just listen and enjoy, if you like.

Our first Calaveras event in January was a success–and March found us growing and picking up steam in Angels Camp! Join us as we swap stories formally and informally in an open and fun atmosphere surrounded by original artwork by gifted painters and photographers.

Bring yourself and your friends of all ages for a fun afternoon. Both experienced and non-experienced tellers are welcome, and all are welcome to tell and/or to listen.

The Mother Lode Storytelling Guild meets in Angels Camp every other month, on the last Sunday of the month, from 4-6 pm. The event is is hosted by master storyteller Kathy.

We also meet monthly on the 3rd Saturday at Sonora Joes in downtown Sonora. Learn more at http://www.sierranevadastorytelling.org/ and stay up to date by clicking LIKE on our facebook page.

Sip ‘n Paint with Mary Sexton

Sip ‘n Paint with Mary Sexton at Manzanita Arts Emporium in Angels Camp. Every third Friday from 6-9:30. Join a fun group of people who enjoy splashing some acrylic onto canvas to come up with mini-masterpieces. This is no paint-by-number process, and there is no drawing in advance. You start with a blank canvas, and magically, wonderful stuff happens to it under the gentle guidance of Mary Sexton, oil and acrylic painter.

$45 –  all materials and expertise provided — relax and enjoy making your painting–one that you can be proud of.  Complimentary hors d’oeuvres, wine, beverages, sweets. Sign up now.

Audubon Society – Birds and Water

Barry Boulton of the Audubon Society presents an evening of Birds & Water, a free public slideshow and video presentation about area birds.

Where: Manzanita Arts Emporium at 1211 S. Main St., Angels Camp

When: Thursday, April 19, from 6-8 pm.

Birds & Water

A living creature that can fly is already way ahead in the “that’s amazing” stakes, but for some birds, amazing doesn’t quite get you there……  Take the Black Skimmer that so elegantly floats at a precise height above the water’s surface with only its longer lower mandible cutting through the water; it’s hoping to hit a small fish whereupon its bill automatically close and, hey presto, here’s a meal. You have to wonder – where did that idea come from?

Then there’s the Black Turnstone (yes, the name does actually mean something) that nonchalantly flips stones over with its bill, seeking anything tasty hidden underneath.  It all happens so quickly – the flip of the stone, the check for food and the decision that something is edible or not. It happens almost in a continuous movement followed by a quick scamper to the next stone – there’s no time to waste.

Or the Sanderling flocks that follow the waves as they recede from shore looking for small worms and so on revealed by the receding water – and then they scamper back as the next tide comes in. They appear so sweet and naïve – but they’ve been at this for a few million years so they have it all worked out by now!

Using high definition video techniques, we will watch these birds and others as they revel in their water environments to display these fascinating behaviors – they don’t mean to entertain us, but they surely do.

Barry Boulton is President of the Central Sierra Audubon Society and an avid videographer and presenter of bird behaviors and their stories.

Every living creature that can fly is already way ahead in the “that’s amaz-ing” stakes, but for some birds, amazing doesn’t quite get you there . . .

 

Take the Black Skimmer that so elegantly floats at a precise height above the water’s surface with only its longer lower mandible cutting through the water; it’s hoping to hit a small fish whereupon its bill will snap shut!

Using high definition video techniques, we will watch Skimmers and other birds as they revel in their water environments to display these fascinating behaviors – they don’t mean to entertain us, but they surely do.
