Earlier this week, Mayor Stone and Councilmember Hurt presented a Proclamation to student members of the Black Student Unions at Carlmont High School and NDNU, recognizing February as #BlackHistoryMonth in the City of Belmont.

On February 15th, The Sr. Dorothy Stang Center for Social Justice and Community Engagement invited members to attend the second showing in a series of screenings of the documentary "Eyes on the Prize" as a look back on major events of the Civil Rights movement.

The docuseries will continue to be shown throughout the month of March. We invite members of the public to join us and take part in a discussion. Event details can be found on our Facebook events page.

Zeuxis : Flowers as Metaphor
January 25th – February 25th
Reception: Thursday 9 February @ 4 PM
There will panel discussion by Zeuxis Artists at the reception.

Wiegand Gallery hours are Wednesday – Saturday
12 – 4 PM
Admission is free.

Zeuxis is a grass roots project founded in New York City in 1994. Membership is made up of artists from across the country. Its mission is to take the measure of contemporary still life painting, and it has organized numerous traveling shows, which have been exhibited around the country. The current exhibition, Flowers as Metaphor, features the paintings of Zeuxis artists as well as guests, William Harsh and Philip Jackson.

Artists include:
Rita Baragona, William D. Barnes, Temma Bell, Richard Castellana, Susan Cohen, Phyllis Floyd, John Goodrich, William Harsh, Elizabeth Higgins, Philip Jackson, Tim Kennedy, Deborah Kirklin, Matt Klos, Carmela Kolman, Richard La Presti, John Lee, Ying Li, Sydney Licht, Catherine Maize, Anthony Martino, Margaret McCann, Ruth Miller, Stephanie Rauschenbusch, Emil Robinson, Stephanie Sanchez, Sandra Stone, Gwen Strahle, Sheldon Tapley, Ian Tornay, Megan Williamson

As the artist Deborah Kirklin writes in the exhibition publication:
Flowers in paintings, whether they are displayed in baroque, towering masses, or simply, as in the image of a lone daffodil leaning in a glass of water, have held a centuries-long appeal. Beginning with Dutch still life paintings of the 16th century, artists painted flowers for a growing middle class of patrons who wanted to display these works of art in their homes. The verisimilitude and craft of these paintings included details down to droplets of water and tiny insects crawling on leaves. The flowers themselves, tulips for example, could be seen as metaphors for wealth. There were symbolic uses of certain flowers and colors as well. Flowers in paintings can be metaphors for the fleeting nature of life, for youth, love, cultural identity, female anatomy, and death.
