Dec 01   In the Dreamtime....Aboriginal Art from the Booker-Lowe Gallery
Indigenous people inhabited Australia for at least 40,000 years prior to European exploration. They developed hundreds of languages, as well as complex Creation myths or ?Dreamings,? which defined the actions and relationships of ancestral beings ? both human and animal ? to the land and to one another, and dictated codes of conduct. It was not until the early 1970's that the Aboriginal people, the world's oldest living culture, were encouraged to share their pictorial traditions with the ?outside world? by painting them on canvas. Since the first paintings were created at the remote Papunya settlement deep in the Central Desert, Aboriginal artists have continued to paint their country and their ancestral stories in strikingly contemporary fashion.

Dec 06   In the Dreamtime....Aboriginal Art from the Booker-Lowe Gallery
Indigenous people inhabited Australia for at least 40,000 years prior to European exploration. They developed hundreds of languages, as well as complex Creation myths or ?Dreamings,? which defined the actions and relationships of ancestral beings ? both human and animal ? to the land and to one another, and dictated codes of conduct. It was not until the early 1970's that the Aboriginal people, the world's oldest living culture, were encouraged to share their pictorial traditions with the ?outside world? by painting them on canvas. Since the first paintings were created at the remote Papunya settlement deep in the Central Desert, Aboriginal artists have continued to paint their country and their ancestral stories in strikingly contemporary fashion.

Dec 08   Turning Point Woodturning's Evolution from Ancient Craft to Fine Art
Featuring 49 works from Gulf Coast artists, Turning Point is a fascinating overview of masterworks in this ancient field of artistry that has undergone significant changes. Though the origin of woodturning dates to 1300 BC, the continued improvement of machinery and technology has allowed craftsmen to develop work with continued levels of intricacy and skill, truly raising this lathe-based technique from craft to fine art.

Dec 08   In the Dreamtime....Aboriginal Art from the Booker-Lowe Gallery
Indigenous people inhabited Australia for at least 40,000 years prior to European exploration. They developed hundreds of languages, as well as complex Creation myths or ?Dreamings,? which defined the actions and relationships of ancestral beings ? both human and animal ? to the land and to one another, and dictated codes of conduct. It was not until the early 1970's that the Aboriginal people, the world's oldest living culture, were encouraged to share their pictorial traditions with the ?outside world? by painting them on canvas. Since the first paintings were created at the remote Papunya settlement deep in the Central Desert, Aboriginal artists have continued to paint their country and their ancestral stories in strikingly contemporary fashion.

Dec 15   Be Tomball Ready Monthly Lunch Presentation
BTR is a subcommittee of the Greater Tomball Area Chamber of Commerce and the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), and is dedicated to helping businesses and individuals prepare for, survive, and recover from all kinds of emergencies and disasters.  “Unfortunately, these events usually don’t give us much notice, so being prepared often means the difference between losing your personal property or business, and being able to survive such an event,” said Ott.
 
Previous BTR Meetings are held the 3rd Thursday monthly and are free and open to the public.  Mike Ott, Committee Chair, encourages interested citizens to “bring lunch or purchase a meal from the TRMC Cafeteria, and join us to learn about a variety of personal and public safety topics.”

programs include FBI presentations on cyber-crime, internet security, prevention of identity theft, personal safety, business crime, strategies for reducing online banking risk, Red Cross information, recovery case studies from a business disaster expert, a representative from the Virus Doctor, a panel of computer experts, presentations by the Harris County Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, and representatives from the Tomball Regional Medical Center, Tomball Fire and Police Departments, Harris County Sheriff’s Office and Constables Office.

Featuring 49 works from Gulf Coast artists, Turning Point is a fascinating overview of masterworks in this ancient field of artistry that has undergone significant changes. Though the origin of woodturning dates to 1300 BC, the continued improvement of machinery and technology has allowed craftsmen to develop work with continued levels of intricacy and skill, truly raising this lathe-based technique from craft to fine art.

Dec 20   In the Dreamtime....Aboriginal Art from the Booker-Lowe Gallery
Indigenous people inhabited Australia for at least 40,000 years prior to European exploration. They developed hundreds of languages, as well as complex Creation myths or ?Dreamings,? which defined the actions and relationships of ancestral beings ? both human and animal ? to the land and to one another, and dictated codes of conduct. It was not until the early 1970's that the Aboriginal people, the world's oldest living culture, were encouraged to share their pictorial traditions with the ?outside world? by painting them on canvas. Since the first paintings were created at the remote Papunya settlement deep in the Central Desert, Aboriginal artists have continued to paint their country and their ancestral stories in strikingly contemporary fashion.

Dec 27   Turning Point Woodturning's Evolution from Ancient Craft to Fine Art
Featuring 49 works from Gulf Coast artists, Turning Point is a fascinating overview of masterworks in this ancient field of artistry that has undergone significant changes. Though the origin of woodturning dates to 1300 BC, the continued improvement of machinery and technology has allowed craftsmen to develop work with continued levels of intricacy and skill, truly raising this lathe-based technique from craft to fine art.

Dec 28   In the Dreamtime....Aboriginal Art from the Booker-Lowe Gallery
Indigenous people inhabited Australia for at least 40,000 years prior to European exploration. They developed hundreds of languages, as well as complex Creation myths or ?Dreamings,? which defined the actions and relationships of ancestral beings ? both human and animal ? to the land and to one another, and dictated codes of conduct. It was not until the early 1970's that the Aboriginal people, the world's oldest living culture, were encouraged to share their pictorial traditions with the ?outside world? by painting them on canvas. Since the first paintings were created at the remote Papunya settlement deep in the Central Desert, Aboriginal artists have continued to paint their country and their ancestral stories in strikingly contemporary fashion.
