2020 has been a difficult year for everyone. Today I received this picture from the boat yard, where Jim is working with Clip & Will. This boat may be bound in wrap, and drydocked, but the door, like our hearts, is open.

“The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, and who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.” Goethe.

We have lost another compatriot. Please join us Thursday, 01/23/2020 for a Mass of Christian Burial at 10am, at Queen of Heaven Church to honour Michael Kelchlin.

Dear Readers,
There are a great many people, volunteers, and foundations from the Westen New York community, which make Excalibur possible. Participant donations are also quite crucial, and help to offset Excalibur's expenses, particulary fuel. (Our suggested donation is $13.00 per person, for a two hour accessible boating/fishing trip.) When you weigh in on the cost of maintenance, insurance, and fuel (at $500 plus dollars per refuel) it's a miracle this program runs. So the next time you are out on the water with us, please look at your donation as an investment in the Excalbur program. We need to keep our engines running for you!

Kind Regards,
Catherine Catalano
Director of Programming
Excalibur

P.S. If you would like to make your own personal donation, please visit our website at www.excaliburls.com under donations. Thank you!

Starlight Summer Group Show
Inaugural Eleven Twenty Projects Exhibition
Opening Reception Thursday, August 3, 2017, 6-9pm
On View August 3 - September 2, 2017
Exhibition Hours: Friday - Saturday 11am-4pm or by appointment
Eleven Twenty Projects: 1120 Main Street, Buffalo, NY 14209

Eleven Twenty Projects is pleased to announce a new partnership with Starlight Studio & Art Gallery. This collaborative effort will showcase Starlight’s numerous talented artists both in exhibitions at the Main Street gallery as well as in online exclusive shows on artsy.net.

Starlight is a cooperative environment that supports adults with disabilities in their artistic development. Through technical assistance by professional artists and opportunities for representation, the Starlight artists hone their artistic interests; become stronger advocates, and better-integrated citizens.

In collaborating with Starlight, Eleven Twenty Projects seeks to help shed the overused categorization “Outsider Art”. Renowned art critic Jerry Saltz once wrote about this exact problem in a 2013 issue of Vulture, stating that “Millions of viewers and thousands of nascent artists are being denied the chance to see some of the best work made in the last 100 years simply because it was once decided that to be an artist meant having had preapproved training”. To move away from this historical practice, one of the goals of this affiliation is to broaden the audience for Starlight artists.

Upon visiting Starlight, one is immediately struck by the expressive, emotional work being made in all varieties of media. The nurturing environment provided by the teaching artists clearly sparks inspiration in the Starlight artists to create beautiful pieces of artwork. Carrie Marcotte, Starlight’s Director, is optimistic about this partnership and the new opportunities it would bring for the Starlight artists. In her words, “The work is being interpreted by someone who has not been so close to the process, which makes for interesting results. The prospect of this upcoming exhibition and ongoing relationship injects the artists at Starlight with a new bit of inspiration and enthusiasm”.

The Starlight Summer Group Show marks the launch of the collaboration, with works by many artists including; Ray Barret, John Budney, Saeed Dubaishi, David Feickert, Janet Harrison, Eric Johnson, Sonya Lewis, Chace Lobley, John Montedoro, Larell Potter, John Price, Ronald Steele, and Josh Wagner.

There will be a closing reception Thursday, August 31, 2017 from 5:30-7:30pm.
