Bread and Words with special guest Kim Church Nov 09, 2014 from 04:00 PM to 05:00 PM Single Sisters Saal ,
Bread and Words was launched in 2012 by Susan Calovini, Dean of the College and Vice President of Student & Academic Affairs. This benefit reading supports the ongoing efforts of Second Harvest Food Bank of North Carolina to raise awareness regarding issues of hunger and homelessness in our state. Second Harvest collects financial donations and non-perishable food items throughout the year for those in need. Bread and Words also celebrates the power of language to raise our awareness of hunger, homelessness, compassion, grace, and gratitude. We invite faculty, staff, students, alumnae, and friends of Salem Academy and College to read works that speak of grace, compassion, strife, and/or the joys of communion, sharing, and giving. We encourage you to join us as participants and/or listeners. Bring nonperishable food items and/or financial donations for Second Harvest. North Carolina writer and special guest Kim Church is the author of the novel, Byrd (Dzanc Books 2014), the fractured family history of a child secretly given up for adoption. Jill McCorkle says of the book, “Brilliant writing — lively and heartbreaking at every turn.” Kim’s poetry and short stories have appeared in Shenandoah, Painted Bride Quarterly, Mississippi Review, the Norton anthology Flash Fiction Forward, and elsewhere. A Pushcart Prize nominee, she has received fellowships from the North Carolina Arts Council, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Millay Colony for the Arts, and Vermont Studio Center. Church will be available for a book signing following the readings. Sponsored by the Center for Women Writers and the Office of the Dean of the College.

Robert Allen Ruckman: "AUM Salem" - Reception Nov 14, 2014 from 06:00 PM to 08:00 PM Mary Davis Holt Back Gallery, Elberson Fine Arts Center,
Exhibition Dates: October 27 - February 6 Reception: Friday, November 14 from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. AUM Salem is an all-goddess exhibit, and the name of the largest painting dedicated to the genius of Salem College. These “flow paintings” embody each goddess’ power and imagination, the union of sound and light. Ruckman’s unique approach to technique and content comes from viewing the artist as medium, an intermediary between spirits and humans. Using ancient hermetic practices, he anchors the thought-form of these goddesses to the canvas. The paint coalesces around the etheric forms as it is manipulated both physically and psychically. The images that emerge from this process are the result of Ruckman’s meditation upon the co-creational union with his subject, constituting what he calls “Abstract Portraiture.”
Suffragettes: Votes, Violence, Victory - Reception Nov 14, 2014 from 06:00 PM to 08:00 PM Mary Davis Holt Gallery, Elberson Fine Arts Center,
Exhibition Dates: October 27 - February 6 Reception: Friday, November 14 | 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. On March 3, 1913, the Women’s Suffrage Procession in Washington, D.C., marked the cumulative achievement of Suffragettes after generations of struggle. “Votes, Violence, Victory” celebrates the Suffragettes and pays homage to women for their enduring fight for gender equality. From Sarah M. Grimke, abolitionist and feminist from South Carolina, to Rosa Parks, who took a powerfully modest stand, a movement develops and expands. Women activists, often portrayed as ambitious, radical, pushy, and unwomanly, have been less celebrated for securing many of these liberties. Ultimately, society’s embrace of peaceful change arrives through those who soldiered and suffered brave causes.

You just have to feel it in your heart.” This free event has general admission seating and reservations are not required. Reception to follow. Sponsored by Winston-Salem Industries for the Blind.
