"A Peace of My Mind" Exhibition

Apr
18

Friday, April 18, 2014

A Peace of My Mind began out of the belief that if a single voice can make a small difference, then together, many voices can make a tremendous impact.

In early 2009, photographer John Noltner began interviewing people about their thoughts on peace. The interviews were recorded digitally and combined with a B&W portrait.

The goal is to create a collection of thoughts on peace from people with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences and to use that collection of interviews to foster a larger public conversation on the subject.

The project is based on the premise that we all have important thoughts to share. We all have a view of peace that is very personal - whether that means political peace, spiritual peace, inner peace or something entirely unexpected. And the belief is that at the core, we are all the same - we all long for and dream for the same things.

So the hope is that through conversation, we will begin to understand each other a little better. By sharing, we will create a sense of community, and in our own way, make a stand for peace - in our own lives, in our communities, and in the world that we share.

Sunday, May 04, 2014

A Peace of My Mind began out of the belief that if a single voice can make a small difference, then together, many voices can make a tremendous impact.

In early 2009, photographer John Noltner began interviewing people about their thoughts on peace. The interviews were recorded digitally and combined with a B&W portrait.

The goal is to create a collection of thoughts on peace from people with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences and to use that collection of interviews to foster a larger public conversation on the subject.

The project is based on the premise that we all have important thoughts to share. We all have a view of peace that is very personal - whether that means political peace, spiritual peace, inner peace or something entirely unexpected. And the belief is that at the core, we are all the same - we all long for and dream for the same things.

So the hope is that through conversation, we will begin to understand each other a little better. By sharing, we will create a sense of community, and in our own way, make a stand for peace - in our own lives, in our communities, and in the world that we share.

Live at Laman Featuring Buddy Case

May
8

Thursday, May 08, 2014

Buddy Case is one of those rare musicians who is not only an accomplished singer / songwriter, but a gifted guitarist as well. Born in Portland, Oregon, Cases? family followed the crop harvests into California. Case remembers picking prunes, green beans and cucumbers as a small child. ?I remember eating more raw green beans than I put in the bag,? he laughs. ?Listening to the Mexican families playing music in their yards at evening time had a profound effect on the style I developed on guitar?, Case says. In fact you can hear the influence of Spanish guitar on several of Cases? recordings. By the time he was 14, his family had moved to Little Rock, Arkansas, and he was playing lead guitar in a 40 piece church orchestra.

He released his first CD in 1999, titled A Simple Life and later a Christmas CD. In 2001, Case formed an all-acoustic band, The Acousticatz. Within the next year, the band went through two separate personnel changes and in 2003, his band won the Arkansas State Championship in the Colgate Country Showdown, the largest competition of its kind. They went on to represent Arkansas in Atlanta, Georgia, finishing 12th overall in the nation out of over 100,000 entries. Case produced two CDs with the Acousticatz and is currently working on an all original CD with the group. He produced a live CD in 2005 and has finished his 6th CD, which was released in November, 2006. Case has opened for the Nashville Bluegrass Band, but the highlight of Case's music career was playing onstage with Texas legends, Augie Meyers, W.C. Jameson, and Mike Blakely in Luckenbach, Texas.

Whether playing venues across the country or teaching guitar at a youth ranch, he remains busy doing what he loves.
