The cross influencing of one art form to another brings an added dimension by taking an idea further into a totally different experience–like a sequel to a story. By relating movement and dance to these specific art works, a train of thought is created. The collecting of these particular works, starts with an idea of rebalance in our lives, showing possibilities, our need to deal with states of mind as we journey through loss, ending with our need to become present to our surroundings.
Artists have always been the witnesses of our times. FLOCK is a conscious carrier of such intentions as their work embraces issues of social concern. Langstaff believes that movement and gesture are strong purveyors of heart moving information and therefore a helpful way to instigate change.

As of December 9, 2011, AVA Gallery and Art Center has what is believed to be the very first application—or “app”— focusing on a “green” building project, namely the initiatives that were taken in 2006-2007 to make the renovation of AVA’s Carter-Kelsey Building a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold-Certified project.
We proudly invite you to click here and download the Free AVA LEED App to your iTouch, iPhone or iPad.
Special thanks go to Barbara Jones and Eric Richardson for their conceptual and technical development of this project; to Patrick Luteran, 2010 AVA intern and an architecture student, for developing part of the verbiage used in this app; to C. Stuart White, Jr., AIA, for all his professional advice and for the writing of specific segments; to Brandy Zarle and Tim Rush, New York City-based actors who, while performing this fall at Shaker Bridge Theatre in Enfield, New Hampshire, donated their time and expertise to record voice-over for part of the app’s audio; and to the Highfield Foundation for funding this project.
Thanks to the support of Systems Plus Computers, curious visitors can also take the AVA LEED tour on iPods that are available, and can be signed out for loan, from the AVA office.
AVA’s board and staff are please to announce that we were honored with two 2011 Owl Awards: Best Art Gallery and Best Art Education!
We want to let everyone know how much we appreciate the opportunity to serve the Upper Valley and that we will continue to work as hard as we can for you.
We also wish to thank The Complete Hoot for all they do for the arts in our community!
