The Bedford Gallery Launches Their First Exhibit Online

Bird, Nest, Nature is a juried and invitational exhibition featuring a roster of local and national artists.

This exhibition was juried by Jeffrey De Blois, Assistant Curator, ICA Boston and Rebecca Lowery, Assistant Curator, MOCA Los Angeles, and includes over 150 local, national and international artists inspired by the exquisite beauty of creatures of flight.

Activities

Coffee Break Qi Gong for a Balanced Life

Sponsored by the WC Seniors Club: Free on Zoom
Mondays at 11 am, Starting October 19 



Qi Gong uses traditional Chinese exercises that engage the mind and body and encompasses posture and movement in a meditative experience. This 15 minute class provides a chance to take a break and relax with slow movements. The leader, Bob Wolf, studied Qi Gong for 4 years at the San Francisco Chinatown YMCA and teaches Qi Gong to employees of a major corporation.
This class requires balance and physical activity. This means our insurance carrier requires that you be a member of the WC Seniors Club and that you agree to a waiver of liability to participate. The waiver will be sent with your Zoom invite and clicking on the Zoom link to join the meeting means you have agreed to the terms of the waiver.

We are looking for speakers to share their passionate insights with fellow gardeners. The Garden Wizards makes volunteering easy. We are set up to handle the technical aspects of Zoom for a speaker and, if the speaker wants to use photos, to put those photos into a slideshow and manage that slideshow while the speaker talks.  If you or another amateur greenskeeper would like this blooming opportunity please contact Jane at ginger20749@yahoo.com
