Dear Fellow Passengers on Spaceship Earth,
It's all about time... and our connection to the planet on the oldest holiday in human history.
On Monday, December 21, MMXV, BC Space will host its 30th annual Winter Solstice celebration. Events will begin at Main Beach with the observance of the final Sunset of the shortest day of the year. If the weather is fair we may be treated to the rarely seen green flash. We are fortunate in Laguna to have our own Solstice marker since the Sun goes down precisely in the southern tip of Catalina Island on that day.
At 5:13 the gallery will be open for food, drink, art and conversation. This year's Solstice exhibition is all the work of friends, including works by: Jerry Burchfield, Mark Chamberlain, Glenn Brooks, Paul Darrow, Andy Wing, Roger Armstrong, Fred Stodder, Ron English, Lynn Kubasek, Jacques Garnier, Jorg Dubin, Stephen Lehmer, Jared Milar, Sandra Jones Campbell, Jessica Destephano, Clayton Spada, Ray Jacobs, Ken Perdomo, Stephen Anderson, Joella March, Ricardo Duffy.
At 6:33 there will be a special presentation by anthropologist Stephen O'Neil on the Star Lore of the Acjachemen Indians who inhabited Laguna Beach over two thousand years ago and recognized the importance of the Solstice in their lives by tracking the stars.
At 7:09 our own poet laureate, John Gardiner, will regale us with his poetical works relating to the occasion.
At 7:38 troubadour Mark Turnbull will perform his own magnificent compositions.
The event is free to the public, but everyone is encouraged to bring food & drink to share.
For additional information please contact the gallery or Mark Chamberlain.
