The exhibition Elapsed in Time, featuring work by printmaker Jenny Robinson, has a genuine sense of majesty. The prints she has on display are large, most of them over 30 by 50 inches – much larger than the usual print. They command the space they are displayed in, showing off a real technical brio. For Robinson, the scale is mostly a matter of format meeting subject matter. The prints at the CCAI Courthouse Gallery display big, mostly neglected structures: Gasometers, highway underpasses, abandoned rollercoaster tracks, water towers. The structures are massive, but they are also, in the context of their environments, generally unnoticed – hidden either by design or by obsolescence. Robinson’s prints reveal how these giant structures appear after they have stopped being looked after, and stopped being looked at (of course, Robinson herself is still looking).

Goals and Intentions
Workshops facilitate participants being true to themselves through practices of self-transformation and conscious self-creation.
I bring to this workshop my 35 years of teaching experience as a university professor, my decades of bodily and scholarly research into soul-and-mind-inseparable-from-body, and my desire to help women in particular transform the negative habits of mind and body that pervade our culture in regard to women. I received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Women’s Caucus for Art in 2008 for satisfying that desire; as that organization wrote, “for helping forge a positive image of women as they experience life passionately.”
What We Do in the Workshop
The book The Glamour of Being Real is composed of 5 chapters, Glamour Defined, Change, Body, Relationships, and Everyday Life. The basis of each workshop is the first chapter, which gives participants new ways to think about and activate trust in themselves. Then we focus on one of the chapter topics. Conversation and effectively simple body and mind practices are the methods for exploring self-creation and self-transformation—and for having fun.
