*The Scandinavian Cultural Center hosts a concert by Stenmark and Råberg on Saturday, February 5 at 1:00 p.m. This concert invites you to listen to an intimate conversation where Bruno’s Bass pairs with Oskar’s Horn. The duo uses the small orchestration to create a large canvas where improvisation has an important role, the program consists of compositions by some of Sweden’s greatest jazz artists. Witness the intimate conversation of bass and brass here.
*Celebrate the Lunar New Year at the New Art Center on Sunday, February 6 from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. New Art Center and the Cambridge Center for Chinese Culture present a Cultural Community Day filled with family-friendly events in honor of the Year of the Tiger. Drop in to make some art including Chinese red couplets, tiger bookmarks, and tiger mobiles, and stay for traditional Jiujie Whip demonstrations by Claire Fillon and a Wu-Shu demonstration by Zunlong Li. Bring out your tiger and experience this grrreat event with the New Art Center.
*Newton Art Association presents a Demonstration by Yo Ahn Han on Sunday, February 6 at 2:00 p.m. His work on paper collages plays on negative and positive space while using diaphanous patterns. Han calls his work a visual dialogue between suppression and desire, a duality that speaks to both his experience of cerebral arteriovenous malformation (a rare medical condition) and to his bifurcated cultural identity. Don’t suppress your desire to attend this workshop.
