    Adelphi University in Garden City, NY

    Blood Stripe

    The Veterans Health Alliance of Long Island and Adelphi University invite you to a screening of Blood Stripe on January 19, 6:30pm. This screening is free of charge and open to all: veterans, family members, friends and the general service provider community. A Q&A with the filmmaker/star to follow screening.

    A Sergeant (Kate Nowlin) returns home to a small town in Minnesota, having just completed her third tour with the Marines in Afghanistan. Unable to sleep, wracked by paranoia and anxiety, it is clear that in addition to the shrapnel scars she bears on her torso, she carries unseen wounds. It is only a matter of time before she can no longer bottle up her trauma and a boisterous welcome home party provokes her into an explosive outburst. With nowhere to turn, she flees, taking refuge at a lakeside summer camp. But she cannot escape her inner darkness; and, ultimately, is spun so violently out of herself, she may never return.

    Fordham University Spring Art Workshop for Veterans

    Instructor Steve Alpert leads Art-Making Workshops for veterans at Fordham University on Tuesday nights at 6:30pm beginning January 23. All artists make art for one basic reason; to learn the truth about themselves. 

    Artists access their own life experiences in order to make their own individual unique art. This intensive workshop is designed to support the emerging artists in learning to access the experiences of their lives and expressing themselves through their own unique art, be it painting, sculpture, drawing, etc.  The participants will bring the work they have made in the time between class meetings and put on display for others in the workshop. 

    The final class meeting will be an exhibition of work selected by the artists, representing their journey through the workshop in the previous months.
