AR0010 AR10 Artwork Nancy Richter Brzeski Original painting-Hymn to the Moon
Invalid Image LinkInvalid Image Link
This original tempera painting by artist Nancy Richter Brzeski was completed in 2007. Nancy is a long-time member of the church and has pursued her passion in the arts for decades. She has had a major installation in SF and has had her works displayed in local venues. She describes the inspiration for this painting in her book "The Passionate Art of Nancy Richter Brzeski" as follows:

"Hymn to the Moon was painted in Paula Powers' Creativity Workshop in Oakland. I was listening to Renee Antonin Dvorak's opera Rusalka, which we had recently seen in San Francisco. I was listening to it on my portable CD player, dancing to it, singing it, totally immersed in it. I imagined that I was about to die. This was my last chance to make a strong affirmative statement to leave behind. I waited excitedly for the solo violin passage at the end, which rises like a flame, so afraid that I might mess up the whole painting. When I had done it, I shouted "I did it!"

EN0002 EN2 Entertainment Auction Team Private Concert with local band Tree-O
Invalid Image LinkInvalid Image Link
From bluesy rockers to country ballads, surf music to old-time and bluegrass styles, contemporary pop to classic western swing, Tree-O brings a new acoustic string band sensibility to its performances.

Purchase your private one hour concert, and let their music soothe your soul. CDs will also be offered at the auction. (The band will share 50/50 of all profits with the church.) Date arranged by winning bidder.

Tree-O’s sound features lush three-part harmonies supported by a driving rhythmic accompaniment. Each member shares lead vocals throughout the set. George Haver, guitar, leads with a warm and engaging tenor voice. Rick Palkovic offers instrumental color on mandolin and Dobro, adding his high baritone to harmony and lead vocals. Jamie Knapp holds down the bottom end with the upright bass and adds harmony and lead vocals. But any of the three is likely to pick up a banjo, recorder, keyboard or other instrument if not restrained. The result is a delightfully diverse and eclectic instrumentation.

Tree-O came together under the name Rubber Soulmates for what was originally envisioned as a one-time gig to perform acoustic interpretations of hits from the 1965 Beatles classic, Rubber Soul. They had so much fun playing together that they stayed together, quickly expanding their repertoire to include other artists and genres, as well as their own originals.

The Curtis Institute of Music educates and trains exceptionally gifted young musicians for careers as performing artists at the highest professional level.

Take a walking tour of central Oak Park with urban geographer Robin Datel. The tour emphasizes the African American history of Sacramento’s first suburb, including the site of the Sacramento branch of the Black Panther Party and the building where the Ku Klux Klan held a recruitment meeting decades earlier. Recent investments in the area are changing the face(s) of the neighborhood.

Pick up a coffee beforehand at Old Soul at Broadway and 35th Street. The Farmer’s Market in McClatchy Park will be on our route.

Invalid Image LinkInvalid Image Link
Visit the Oakland Museum of California to view the exhibit, “All Power to the People: Black Panthers at 50.” After lunch visit the African American Museum and Library at Oakland for the related photography show, “Revolutionary Grain: Celebrating the Spirit of the Black Panthers in Portraits and Stories.” You will be able to see at least the exterior of the UU Church of Oakland, as it is on the same block as AAMLO.

Participants can choose to ride Amtrak to Oakland and back, to carpool, or to arrive under their own power. The distance between the two museum venues is about a dozen blocks, which can be walked or covered using transit, personal auto, or Uber.

At a later date, a gathering will be provided to discuss the museum exhibits and how current antiracist efforts, including those of our church, relate to the history presented.

Price includes museum admission and lunch. Participants are responsible for getting themselves to Oakland and back; donor Robin Datel can help arrange carpools.

The 10:30 start time refers to when participants should be at the Oakland Museum.

A pilgrimage is a journey of the soul that you take in your physical body, step by step. The same can be said of walking the labyrinth, an ancient form of moving meditation.

Join Laura Sandage and Satinder Sandhu for a very local pilgrimage to three Davis church labyrinths. This 4-hour small group experience will include social time while we walk between sites, reflective time during labyrinth walks, simple ritual elements to create a sacred container for our experience, and a homemade Indian lunch at Laura and Satinder's house en route.

Suitable for all ages and designed to be enjoyed in any weather. Participants must be capable of walking (or riding in stroller or backpack) for about 4 miles.

PE0001 PE1 Parties & Events Gale Sosnick Abstract Collage Class Collage is a satisfying medium for people who have an eye for design but feel thwarted by their drawing skills. Explore your creative side with an abstract collage class led by prize-winning artist Gale Sosnick. We will work with colored magazine pages and manipulate them to blur the images into visual elements that may be mysterious, playful, evocative, earthy, dreamy, bold, or misty. Play with colors, shapes and effects to create artwork for your home or a gift.

You will bring home up to three finished works, up to 11x14". All materials will be supplied. You may bring your own frames if you wish.

The class will meet for 3 hours at church on a Saturday morning in January. Open to teens and adults.

EX0001 EX1 Excursions Elizabeth Banks Andy Goldsworthy Art Walk - the Presidio
Invalid Image LinkInvalid Image Link
Step into another world, the 300-acre urban forest of San Francisco's Presidio. We'll take a 2(+) hour walking tour of Andy Goldsworthy's art installations. Andy draws inspiration from the location of his installations and uses materials found close at hand. His art is designed with the intention that it will dissolve into the earth over time, a reminder that all of life is a temporary gift.

Learn the history of the Presidio forest, and the process used to create Goldsworthy’s installations. Smell the eucalyptus. Look for some of the 30 species of raptors that call this place home. Walk on top of the thick branches of "Wood Line." Admire the 90-foot tall Spire sculpture. Readings and experiences appropriate for the day. You’ll return home knowing 15 people in a new way, so come to build friendships, too.

Guides will be available. Car pool together and lunch at the Presidio. Hearty snacks provided for the walk together. Leave from Davis at 10:30am and return between 5:30-6:00pm.
