Surfing in India topic at Surfrider Foundation meeting Feb 27th
India, a country with 1.2 billion people, has only a very small amount of surfers, but the number is growing, partially due to a program at the Surfing Ashram, located in Mulki, India on the Arabian Sea. Vince Pappalardo, Newport Surfrider Foundation member and Volunteer Coordinator, will speak at the next Surfrider meeting on Thursday, February 27, at 6:30pm at the Newport Visual Arts Center, 777 NW Beach Dr.
Pappalardo recently had the opportunity to visit India on a business trip, and while there, he toured around Mombai (Bombay) and also spent time in a Surfing Ashram. He was the only American there, and had a very unique experience.
An Ashram is a spiritual hermitage or monastery, usually focused on an Indian cultural activity such as yoga, music or religious instruction. As it continues to build interest in surfing in India, the Surfing Ashram hopes to work with children, orphans, and the handicapped to give them the opportunity to surf, as well as to teach them environmental awareness. Many of their goals are the same as the Surfrider Foundation, which promotes protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves, and beaches through an activist network.
Pappalardo has beautiful photos, interesting stories, and video clips about his experiences surfing in India. The Surfrider Foundation meetings are open to the public, and there is no admission charge. For more information on the Surfrider Foundation, see http://www.surfrider.org.

Craigie’s live performances – in private homes, cafes, festivals, and sold-out venues – inspire and delight his audiences, who welcome him like a long-lost son and return to see him whenever he visits. He has traveled around the world, having played in all 50 states and beyond, bringing his music to nearly every corner of the planet.

John Craigie writes, sings, and plays for the people. You can learn more on his website,
Thomas Jan Owczarzak, known personally and professionally as “Tom O.”, is a guitarist and modern roots singer-songwriter whose musical journey begins in the wellspring of the blues but ranges far and broadly from there. Tom O. delivers in his “One man Show” with dexterity, energy, and passion as he presents a range of musical relationships with humor and emotion.
Tom O. has played the guitar since the late 60’s, being of the last generation of teenaged working musicians before “disco killed the live band.” In recent years Tom O. has worked to bring the joy of creating music to the young people of the state of Oregon through the Americana Project.

“Kinetascope: Paintings by David MacGougan,” Newport Visual Arts Center Upstairs Gallery runs threw March 1st
Oregon Coast Council for the Arts welcomes Jacob Accurso and his pottery to the Coastal Oregon Visual Artists Showcase (COVAS) on the second floor of the Newport Visual Arts Center. “Ora et labora” is a fine representation of Accurso’s careful skills as a potter. Opening on January 10 with a reception from 5pm to 7pm, Accurso’s show continues through March 1.Pottery found Jacob Accurso, when he was a novice monk at Mount Angel Abbey. Learning to center clay from a Benedictine monk who learned it from another monk, Brother Jacob embraced a long monastic tradition of artistic work as a complement to contemplative life. He thrived at the wheel, cultivating the patience to master a craft and learning the history of one of the oldest art forms on earth.One of the Northwest’s premiere potters, Jeff Procter, offered Jacob an apprenticeship and became a generous mentor and close friend. Jacob got a job as a production potter for Pottery West throwing thousands of bowls for Mo’s Restaurants and moved to his now permanent home on the coast.He has studied with some of the best potters of the twentieth century, including Tom Coleman, Pat Horsley, Warren MacKenzie, Ellen Currans, Frank Boyden and Jay JensenJacob has been honored to help carry the art and traditions forward himself, as a teacher. As an artist-in-residence with Oregon’s Artist In Education program, he spent two weeks at a time in public schools all over the state, teaching students about clay and involving them in his creative process. Like other working professionals, he exhibited in juried shows, sold in galleries and attended art fairs.After taking time to pursue other interests and careers in law enforcement, social work and health coaching, Jacob has returned to the wheel full-time. In his woodland studio, he produces pieces that are pleasing to the eye, comfortable in the hands, useful in everyday life and durable enough to last for generations.Though Jacob did not pursue a lifelong commitment to monastic life, his years making plates, bowls and goblets for everyday use at the Abbey continues to shape his relationship with pottery to this day by the labor of his hands. He continues to perfect his wheel-thrown forms, learn new texturing techniques and develop vibrant glazes with minerals and locally sourced clays. “Ora et labora” as the Benedictines say. Prayer and work.The Newport Visual Arts Center, managed by Oregon Coast Council for the Arts,www.coastarts.org, is located at 777 NW Beach Drive on the Nye Beach Turnaround overlooking the ocean.

SINGER, SONGWRITER, STORYTELLER:FLAHERTY AT THE LCCC MARCH 3
LINCOLN CITY — There are singers, those who can carry a tune. And then there are singers – those who are capable of channeling emotions with their voice and conveying those emotions to the listener. Danny O’Flaherty is one of the latter, as audiences in Lincoln City will discover on Monday, March 3, at the Lincoln City Cultural Center.
He’s making Lincoln City a last-minute addition to his Northwest tour, and tickets are jut $15 advance, $17 at the door. On March 3, the show will begin at 7 pm in the LCCC Auditorium, 540 NE Hwy. 101 in Lincoln City.
Singer, songwriter, storyteller and musician, Danny O’Flaherty was raised in the Connemara region of Ireland, developing his love for the music and songs that were to be a part of his life, around the peat fires from those who came before him. His rich soulful voice, captivating storytelling and engaging stage presence will take the audience to the depths of his soul. O’Flaherty emigrated to the States in the early 1970s and started bringing Irish folk music to folk venues around the country, sharing the stage with many of the Irish and American folk musicians of the era. Through his stories and songs, O’Flaherty delivers a world perspective through the eyes of an Irishman.
He has traveled far from his boyhood home, in the farthest reaches of the Irish west to the steps of the United States Capitol performing before a crowd of a half-million on Solidarity Day. Plus numerous stops along the way – each being a momentous occasion: tour of Israel culminating with private command performance for President Herzog; performance at the National Cathedral for Pope John Paul II’s visit to the United States; performer for President Ronald Reagan’s Inaugural Ball; opening performance at concert for the Pan Celtic Festival in Ireland; invitation only performance for alumnae of the University of Notre Dame, and headliner for the Tulsa Philharmonic and The National Theatre in Washington, DC.
O’Flaherty still clings to the old traditional airs, but is also inspired to sing his own heart-felt folk compositions. With every performance, he continues to bring a Celtic connection to the world. His concerts promise to be a magical evening of music with songs in both English and Irish Gaelic, suitable for all ages.
The Lincoln City Cultural Center offers performances, fine arts, art classes and visitor information inside the historic Delake School at 540 NE Hwy. 101. The March performance schedule also features classical guitar by James Manuele on March 8 and the third annual Festival of Illusions magic week, March 24-28.

The series opens on January 12 when Sharon Sites Adams visits the library to read from and discuss her book. Adams was the first woman to sail solo across the Pacific Ocean, which she did in 1969, from Yokohama to San Diego in her boat named “Sea Sharp II”. For this feat she was named the Los Angeles Times Woman of the Year in 1969. Adams was born in Washington, but took her first sailing lesson at Oregon Legacy continues on January 26 with a visit from novelist Monica Drake. Drake graduated with an MFA from the University of Arizona and she teaches at the Pacific Northwest College of Art. Her debut novel, Clown Girl, was published by the indie press Hawthorne Books and has won an Eric Hoffer Award as well as an IPPY. It’s been translated into Italian and was recently optioned for film by Kristen Wiig. Her most recent novel is The Stud Book. Local favorite Matt Love, who has recently relocated to Astoria, will visit on February 2nd Love is a lifelong educator and publisher of Nestucca Spit Press. He’s the author/editor of ten books about Oregon, including the Beaver State and Newport Trilogies. In 2009, Love won the Oregon Literary Arts’ Stewart H. Holbrook Literary Legacy Award for his contributions to Oregon history and literature. His latest book is Of Walking in Rain. The series finishes on February 9 with a visit from Pauls Toutonghi. Toutonghi was born in 1976 to an Egyptian father and a Latvian mother. His writing has appeared in Granta, The New York Times, Zoetrope: All-Story, Sports Illustrated, and numerous other periodicals. He received a Pushcart Prize for his short story, Regeneration, which appeared in The Boston Review in 2000, when Pauls was twenty-three. His first novel, Red Weather, came out from Random House in 2006. It was translated into Latvian and German — and received good reviews in periodicals across the country. After receiving his PhD in English Literature from Cornell University, Toutonghi moved from Brooklyn, New York to Portland, where he now teaches at Lewis & Clark College. Twenty years ago, Driftwood Public Library completed a move into a new facility at Lincoln Square Civic Center in Lincoln City. To celebrate the library’s new home and to thank the community for all of its support during the transition, The Friends of Driftwood Public Library created a gift for the community. With little resources beyond the income from their occasional book sales, the Friends underwrote the first literary series ever presented in Lincoln County, the Oregon Legacy Series. Each year they have renewed that sponsorship. “For twenty-four hours we treat an Oregon author like a hero, as all authors and artists should be treated,” remarks Sue Jenkins. All Oregon Legacy presentations are free due to the generous support of The Friends and The D’Sands Condominium Motel, who provide free lodging for each of the visitng writers. Each presentation begins at 3:00 p.m. The library is located on the second floor of the Lincoln Square Civic Center at 801 SW Hwy 101 in Lincoln City. For further information about the Oregon Legacy Series, contact Ken Hobson at 541-996-1242 or email@example.com. Lincoln City Cultural Center & Visitor Info Center
