From March through June, Dr. Dudney is whitening teeth to raise money for seriously ill, disabled, and underprivileged children in Alabama and around the world. 100% of the teeth whitening proceeds will go to children’s charities. Fifty percent of the donations will go to local charity “Smile A Mile” that serves the children of Alabama battling cancer. The remaining balance goes to “Smiles for Life Foundation” to be distributed to worthy and approved children’s charities across the world. When you pay for your discounted teeth whitening you’ll write a check directly to the Smiles for Life Foundation, not to the dental practice.

Dr. Dudney is a member of the Crown Council, an alliance of leading-edge dental teams that are passionately committed to promoting oral health, fighting oral cancer and serving their local communities through charitable work. Since 1998, The Smiles for Life Foundation has raised over $40 million, benefiting hundreds of children’s charities.

Dr Dudney has had a patient-center private practice in Alabaster since 1982 as a general dentist with focus on cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Dudney teaches hands on programs and has presented workshops and lectures at dental meetings and conferences around the world. In addition, he has authored several articles on aesthetic and restorative dentistry. Now is the time to schedule your teeth whitening for a good cause!

Mitchell has had her work featured on the television series Empire and was selected to do a commissioned portrait of Dr. Angela Davis highlighting her humanitarian achievements.

The Gadsden Museum of Art is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Miriam Norris Omura: Fabric of Society. This work begins an exploration of identity and social relationships through perspectives, perceptions, and communications between people. It is an attempt to understand and ask questions about what and who makes up the society around us, to see where bridges have broken down, and where they can begin to be built.

The artist will be present in the gallery Saturdays from 2-5pm during the exhibit, working on a community-based project named for the show. Visitors are encouraged to participate in the project by bringing a 10” x 10” piece of fabric and up to five words to describe themselves. For further details, please visit http://miriamomura.com/fabricofsociety

Miriam Norris Omura holds a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in Fiber and Material Studies and a MA in Art History/History from Cleveland State University. She received a 2017 Visual Arts Fellowship from the Alabama State Council on the Arts. She recently studied kasuri weaving at the Kawashima Textile School in Kyoto, Japan. Her artwork is informed by her interests in weaving, cloth, and the tactile quality of layers. In the past, Omura has dealt with personal identity through memory and family history, and she recently began exploring broader overlap concerns that intersect with identity and social issues.

The Gadsden Museum was established by the Gadsden Art Association (GAA) and with over the years, strong partnerships have been forged between the museum and other cultural organizations and educational institutions. The museum has established itself as an important part of the cultural mosaic of Gadsden. In addition, the GMA collects, codifies, and disseminates historical information about the facts and myths of the area’s past, and serves as a resource center for interested visitors and local citizens, as well as students and scholars.

Crochet Circle - Counterpoint Throw-This is a relaxing 2 or 3 hour informal class where we all sit around the table or on the couch and talk, listen and learn how to make this beautiful blanket. You will make your blanket square by square every session until it's done. You can continue at your own home if you want or just save it for 'circle' time. I would suggest saving your first 10 squares for Circle time as it can be a little confusing and you don't wont to have to rip it out and start over but it's your choice! There is no time frame for completion! Must have 2 per class. Bring your own yarn and crochet hooks. I would love to help with your yarn and hook choices if needed. First session - $35. The following 3 sessions - $15 then after that $10 per session. Wine, Tea  and light snacks will be available. We will be meeting on Tue. and sometime Thurs. nights beginning at 6 PM. Get in touch for exact dates.@ http://AndreaLucasStudio.Art   Wine and light snacks will be served!

THINGS TO KNOW:
* FREE ADMISSION! (But buy something. Barrister's lets us perform because they're in the tavern business! Keep the show going!)

No prior dance experience is required! Introduction to Flamenco is the ideal way to start dancing flamenco. Long time flamenco dancer Victoria will teach 1 hour classes introducing basic flamenco for students without prior dance experience. Classes will focus on strong footwork, upper body coordination, understanding flamenco music and compás (rhythmic/melodic patterns), and proper posture. We will begin to develop the muscle strength and dance skills necessary for flamenco dance.

The latter part of class will introduce the very popular Sevillanas. Prepare for the Feria! This regional dance of Seville is performed in schools, parties, weddings, bars, and of course the annual Spring Fair, the Feria. Danced in four short sections called coplas, Sevillanas are known for their charismatic, lively gracefulness. Each copla ends with a sudden stop as dancers strike a pose, inspiring the audience to shout ¡Olé! Beginners will learn basic steps and arm movements to the First Copla.

From March through June, Dr. Dudney is whitening teeth to raise money for seriously ill, disabled, and underprivileged children in Alabama and around the world. 100% of the teeth whitening proceeds will go to children’s charities. Fifty percent of the donations will go to local charity “Smile A Mile” that serves the children of Alabama battling cancer. The remaining balance goes to “Smiles for Life Foundation” to be distributed to worthy and approved children’s charities across the world. When you pay for your discounted teeth whitening you’ll write a check directly to the Smiles for Life Foundation, not to the dental practice.

Dr. Dudney is a member of the Crown Council, an alliance of leading-edge dental teams that are passionately committed to promoting oral health, fighting oral cancer and serving their local communities through charitable work. Since 1998, The Smiles for Life Foundation has raised over $40 million, benefiting hundreds of children’s charities.

Dr Dudney has had a patient-center private practice in Alabaster since 1982 as a general dentist with focus on cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Dudney teaches hands on programs and has presented workshops and lectures at dental meetings and conferences around the world. In addition, he has authored several articles on aesthetic and restorative dentistry. Now is the time to schedule your teeth whitening for a good cause!

The Gadsden Museum of Art is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Miriam Norris Omura: Fabric of Society. This work begins an exploration of identity and social relationships through perspectives, perceptions, and communications between people. It is an attempt to understand and ask questions about what and who makes up the society around us, to see where bridges have broken down, and where they can begin to be built.

The artist will be present in the gallery Saturdays from 2-5pm during the exhibit, working on a community-based project named for the show. Visitors are encouraged to participate in the project by bringing a 10” x 10” piece of fabric and up to five words to describe themselves. For further details, please visit http://miriamomura.com/fabricofsociety

Miriam Norris Omura holds a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in Fiber and Material Studies and a MA in Art History/History from Cleveland State University. She received a 2017 Visual Arts Fellowship from the Alabama State Council on the Arts. She recently studied kasuri weaving at the Kawashima Textile School in Kyoto, Japan. Her artwork is informed by her interests in weaving, cloth, and the tactile quality of layers. In the past, Omura has dealt with personal identity through memory and family history, and she recently began exploring broader overlap concerns that intersect with identity and social issues.

The Gadsden Museum was established by the Gadsden Art Association (GAA) and with over the years, strong partnerships have been forged between the museum and other cultural organizations and educational institutions. The museum has established itself as an important part of the cultural mosaic of Gadsden. In addition, the GMA collects, codifies, and disseminates historical information about the facts and myths of the area’s past, and serves as a resource center for interested visitors and local citizens, as well as students and scholars.

Crochet Circle - Counterpoint Throw-This is a relaxing 2 or 3 hour informal class where we all sit around the table or on the couch and talk, listen and learn how to make this beautiful blanket. You will make your blanket square by square every session until it's done. You can continue at your own home if you want or just save it for 'circle' time. I would suggest saving your first 10 squares for Circle time as it can be a little confusing and you don't wont to have to rip it out and start over but it's your choice! There is no time frame for completion! Must have 2 per class. Bring your own yarn and crochet hooks. I would love to help with your yarn and hook choices if needed. First session - $35. The following 3 sessions - $15 then after that $10 per session. Wine, Tea  and light snacks will be available. We will be meeting on Tue. and sometime Thurs. nights beginning at 6 PM. Get in touch for exact dates.@ http://AndreaLucasStudio.Art   Wine and light snacks will be served!

Stop by Barrister's Tavern every Tuesday night from 7:00-8:00pm (sharp!) and catch some laughs at the end of your work day! This FREE show features both veteran and rising stand-up comics as they work out new material and perfect their craft. The show is just an hour, so you have time to catch our show and still have time to meet up with friends, see a movie, head out for dinner, or whatever else you're up to on a Tuesday night!

THINGS TO KNOW:
* FREE ADMISSION! (But buy something. Barrister's lets us perform because they're in the tavern business! Keep the show going!)

* This is NOT a family friendly show; age 21+. We don't have language or content restrictions. This is Grown Up Comedy for grown ups.

* NOTE FOR COMICS. There are approximately 10-12 slots (up to 5-minutes each) per week. Sign-ups are 6:45-7pm, choose your slot. Once the show starts, your name goes into a hat and we'll draw names and fit in as many as we can before the show ends at 8pm. (There's almost always enough room for everyone!). If you are a travelling/professional comic in town for a gig and would like to work out a longer set, email us - we can usually accommodate you. If you are driving more than 60-minutes, you can email a request to sign up in advance to secure a slot (grownupcomedyal@gmail.com), or message us via Facebook the day of show.

No prior dance experience is required! Introduction to Flamenco is the ideal way to start dancing flamenco. Long time flamenco dancer Victoria will teach 1 hour classes introducing basic flamenco for students without prior dance experience. Classes will focus on strong footwork, upper body coordination, understanding flamenco music and compás (rhythmic/melodic patterns), and proper posture. We will begin to develop the muscle strength and dance skills necessary for flamenco dance.

The latter part of class will introduce the very popular Sevillanas. Prepare for the Feria! This regional dance of Seville is performed in schools, parties, weddings, bars, and of course the annual Spring Fair, the Feria. Danced in four short sections called coplas, Sevillanas are known for their charismatic, lively gracefulness. Each copla ends with a sudden stop as dancers strike a pose, inspiring the audience to shout ¡Olé! Beginners will learn basic steps and arm movements to the First Copla.
