Description: LINDSBORG— The Birger Sandzén Memorial Gallery will host an artist talk by Tallgrass Artist Residency participant Melanie Johnson on Saturday, July 20, 2019, at 2 p.m. The talk is a part of the Sandzén Gallery's 2019 Speakers Series. Johnson is currently an associate professor of art and design at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg, earning her MFA from Indiana University. She primarily creates large scale drawings that serve as a vehicle to construct stories and as a forum to exercise the physical process of combining the observed with the imagined. Johnson is interested in the simultaneous reading of an immediately recognizable image that asks the viewer to linger over a history and meaning that then unfold more slowly. The Tallgrass Artist Residency, in partnership with the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission, is centered in the small Kansas community of Matfield Green, near the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. The residency program seeks to create connection and conversation across the Great Plains through engagement with the prairie ecosystem by inviting eight artists over a year from the North American prairie region to spend two weeks in the Flint Hills of Kansas. All artists will return to Kansas for a group exhibition and program on October 12, 2019. The Sandzén Gallery is located at 401 North First Street in Lindsborg. There is no charge for the artist talk. For further information, please call the Gallery at 785-227-2220 or email sandzengallery@gmail.com. Submitted by: Ron Michael Birger Sandzėn Memorial Gallery

Description: Our three-concert summer series celebrates women in all aspects of musical creation, performance, and experience by delving into how women were influential as patrons, how women historically seized the spotlight as performers (both as singers and instrumentalists), and how women made strides in the still-male dominated world of music composition. In our second concert of the 2019 summer series, we explore how women supported music financially during the early modern era. Our concert will feature recognizable repertoire by well-known composers, such as Arcangelo Corelli, Henry Purcell, Alessandro Scarlatti, and George Frideric Handel. KC Baroque will contextualize these famous composers by discussing the powerful women, such as Queen Christina of Sweden and Queen Anne of England, who supported their careers, often providing them with the necessary opportunities to achieve success in the business of music. Join us for a pre-concert talk given by Dr. Alison DeSimone (UMKC Conservatory) at 6:30 pm, before the show! Submitted by: Alison DeSimone Kansas City Baroque Consortium

Description: Broadway RFD’s 2019 Summer Show is Into the Woods! James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece… and a rare modern classic.

The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

Astrology – Traditions and Practical Applications
Astrology – Traditions and Practical Applications

Description: Astrology – Traditions and practical applications. Bring your birth date, place, and time (if you have it) and get your personal astrology chart. Julia Thompson a full-time professional practicing astrologer, researcher, and author. She lives and works in Kansas City. Julia has been an enthusiastic student of astrology since she first picked up an out-of-print book in a used book store written by a well-known but long-dead astrologer, Grant Lewi. That was 40 ago and now she is proud to say that after much study and practice she can call herself a professional. Julia has studied with the best. When Kepler College opened in Seattle, Washington offering Liberal Arts degrees in the study of astrology and it’s place history and world cultures, She signed on for their M.A. program. One of the intentions of the school was to create a standard of academic credentials for academic professionalism for astrologers. It was an amazing program with a staff of amazing teachers who are the most highly-respected names in the astrological community that she now counts among her mentors. Julia enjoys studying the astrology of a variety of cultures, Eastern Vedic, Chinese, and Mayan but for practical application she primarily uses methodologies in the western tradition inherited from the Greeks. Julia’s personal astrology chart has Jupiter in the ninth house in Pisces with favorable aspects to Uranus and Mercury, It’s an indication of attraction to all things aesthetic and philosophical. And with connections to the mid-heaven and the north node, it’s her destiny to continue learning and growing and to teach and share. For the last three years she has been writing a book. It is almost done and will publish in 2019. The book is called The Jupiter Advantage. It’s a big book. Dense with examples and over 150,000 words. The purpose is both to inform and entertain. If you are interested in astrology, at a level beyond just your Sun sign, The Jupiter Advantage is a great next step. Julia is also, currently, president of the Aquarian Organization of Astrologer, (AOA-KC). The AOA is the center of all things astrology in Kansas City, so whether you are a teacher or a learner, it’s a great place to network with like-minded souls, share your skills and learn something new.
