More about THE HELLO GIRLS
Do you know that Army Signal Corp women played a key role in winning the Allied Victory in WWI France?
Working in harm's way near the battle lines, The Hello Girls and their portable switchboards were our secret weapon.
This is their story. It's time to set the record straight.

MARY JO LOMBARDO
My current work involves incorporating the figure into a series called Balancing Act. The figure is placed in various settings that depict balance or lack thereof. Much of the work is mixed media and involves layering which is a key element of the work. Built up and torn down drawings and prints often serve as the matrix for the pieces which are metaphoric in nature. At the same time I am working on video, currently preparing a piece for Beechwood Arts in Westport CT for their Smackdown II: Bach vs. Glass event mid month. My work can be seen at the open studios at 411 New York Avenue as a member of the Tuesday Night Group located in the studios of Micheline Klagsbrun and Raye Leith, Sunday, May 18, 12-6 at 411 New York Avenue, 3rd Floor.

The organic visions of glass artist Alison Sigethy and clay artist Liz Lescault speak to each other. Collaborating for a second time, Sigethy and Lescault revisit and expand on their previous work, reacting to and altering each other’s sculptures to create enigmatic and seductive life forms that invite examination and study. To set the stage for this show, each artist is constructing an ambitious installation piece.

“This is a donut. It is very sweet, and very good. But if you’ve never tasted a donut, you wouldn’t really know how sweet and how good a donut is…
Transcendental Meditation is like that. Transcendental Meditation gives an experience much sweeter than the sweetness of this donut. It gives the experience of the sweetest nectar of life, pure bliss consciousness.” This fascinating documentary follows David Lynch on a 16-country tour of Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America to spread the word about the individual and global impact of meditation.
With equal parts wit and passion, Meditation, Creativity, Peace, shows the director’s commitment to TM as way of changing the world, starting from within. The film also offers rare insight into Lynch’s creative process, through interviews and revealing moments from the tour.
The film will be followed by a Kolam workshop led by Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center. Click here to RSVP
