PROM IS BACK MAY 29!

PROM IS BACK! The Harveyville Project’s 2010 Prom will be Saturday, May 29!

This year’s prom rates extra special thrills!  Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds and special guests The Royal Butchers will perform, and the inimitable Jason Ward will record it for a live record on In the Red.

Dinner’s at 8 and the bands start after dark (9.30 or so). Wear your prom finery and dancing shoes and prepare to get some fries with that shake! (Ass-shaking optional; wallflowers also welcome.)

Tickets on sale soon. Email Nikol (nikol at harveyvilleproject dot com) if you want an email when tickets go live.

If you’ve never been to our prom, it’s just like the high school prom you avoided–or maybe more like the gymnasium-in-streamers prom from your favorite 80s teen movie–but without the chaperons and teachers and all the a-holes you went to school with. Out-of-state guests get priority for overnight rooms.

Pasture-izing

The fire department burned our back pasture this weekend. We were trying to burn off some of the brush that got in the way of haying last year. The front half of the pasture was in good shape and already greening up nicely, so they left it alone.

Pinhole Photography Exhibit

Opening Reception with
Weenie & Watermelon Feed

Friday, August 28, 7-9 pm
at The Harveyville Project

Learn how the matchbox cameras were made!
Grilled weenies and watermelon served!

Works on display Friday 7-10pm and Saturday noon – 4pm
Exhibit moves to Mission Valley the following week

Earlier this month, workshop participants fabricated their own homemade pinhole cameras. These simple cameras, made with a matchbox, film, and electrical tape-and with no lens or mechanical shutter-create beautiful, sometimes distorted, and dream-like pictures. We’ll display selections from participants of all ages, and show how the cameras were made. Roasted weenies, cold watermelon, and iced tea will be served. Everyone welcome!

Refreshments compliments of The Harveyville Project. Art Share is presented by the City of Harveyville and funded entirely by volunteer donations and a grant from the Kansas Arts Commission.

Special thanks to Glenda Dixon, Caitlin McDiarmid & Todd Love, and Rachel Kaiserman for additional financial support for developing and mounting!

FREE Pinhole Camera Workshop Registration!

Stephanie Trevino's Pinhole Camera Photographs--FREE WORKSHOP 8/8

Pinhole Camera Photos by Stephanie Trevino, who will be leading the free workshop.

We’re proud to announce the first program of Art Share, a free community arts program presented by the City of Harveyville and funded by volunteers and the Kansas Arts Commission.

When: Saturday, August 8, Noon – 3pm

Where: The Harveyville Project (the old high school, 13149 Harveyville Road)

YOU MUST REGISTER IN ADVANCE. The workshop is free, but we need a headcount to have enough supplies for everyone.

What is a pinhole camera? A pinhole camera is a very simple camera with no lens and a single very small aperture. Simply explained, it is a light-proof box with a small hole in one side. Light from a scene passes through this single point and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box. Cameras using small apertures, and the human eye in bright light both act like a pinhole camera. (-Wikipedia)

ALL AGES WELCOME–Adults and children. Children under 8 will need a parent present to supervise them and handle the sharp tools. All students under 18 will need permission slips from their parents (available after 8/3, or immediately before class).

Photographer Stephanie Trevenio will lead the workshop and curate the subsequent exhibit. You will make your own pinhole camera and learn how to use it. Each student will shoot one roll of film at the workshop and leave it to be developed. If there is enough film remaining, we’ll send extra home with you, and you can return your additional shots for development by the end of the week.

Stephanie will select one shot from each student to be printed for a public exhibit the last weekend in August. There will be an optional informal workshop on matting prints later in the month if anyone would like to learn. The teacher will provide details.

We’ll have supplies for everyone  on hand, but if you have any of the following you’d like to donate in advance, we’d be thrilled! We’d also love volunteers setting up, putting up posters, spreading the word, etc. Please email or call Nikol or Stephanie at 785-589-2714 after 8/3 if you’d like to help! We’ll thank donors and volunteers on our upcoming Art Share web site.

Wish list:

black electrical tape
black sharpies
exacto knife
100 or 200 ISO 35mm film
Empty film cassettes (the yellow metal cassette the roll comes in)

You can support this or future Art Share programs with donations. Cash donations are strictly segregated into an Art Share account and used to directly defray excess project expenses (most likely developing, in the case of this program). Any surplus will be applied to future program expenses (buying supplies, etc.). Unless you request that we not name you, we’ll thank you on our upcoming Art Share web site. Your support is much appreciated!
