Artist Chad Farnes takes a non-traditional approach to his art, using only duct and masking tape to create his images. This painstakingly slow process involves layering strip upon seemingly insignificant strip of tape, which produces stunning images of the national parks. His goal in Tape•ography is to explore the intersection between humanity and federal land preservation. He questions what exactly is preserved with the creation of a national park. Is it simply to protect an endangered species or a spectacular vista that otherwise could not be enjoyed? Or is the purpose of national parks to preserve the wild that exists in each of us that otherwise could not be explored?
Veteran artists Kristina Lenzi and Darryl Erdmann exhibit their works together in the exhibition Counter Points. Both are abstract artists, but each finds a different source of inspiration for his or her work. Lenzi is inspired by her Muppet muses Kermit the Frog and Yoda. In Lenzi’s imagination both Kermit and Yoda are influenced by the work of abstract artist and color theorist Wassily Kandinsky and also the mesmerizing beauty of Miss Piggy. The results are happy, colorful paintings.
In contrast, Darryl Erdmann’s work explores the deep passion he has for space, color, line, and their relationship to life. His paintings explore the meaning of openness, closure, and how people react subjectively to them. He creates an open space that helps remind viewers of peace, communication of who we are, and lend understanding to our existence. He believes his paintings also give definition to our everyday lives.
The artists will present a gallery talk about their work on Tuesday, October 13 at 7:00 p.m.

Advanced Lucid Dreaming Practices for Healing and Spiritual Growth
Some Buddhist lineages proclaim an action performed in a lucid dream is seven times more powerful than a waking action. Aware within the dreaming mind, you exist in a unique state, where you can focus intent for emotional or physical healing, achieve creative breakthroughs and accelerate your spiritual growth — that is, if you know how. This workshop will cover those advanced techniques and concepts that you need in order to experience the transformative potential of lucid dreaming.

CHINA Town Hall is a national day of programming on China involving 70 cities throughout the United States. The Ninth Annual China Town Hall will open with a webcast, this year a panel discussion focusing on the findings of a new report by the National Committee and Rhodium Group on the recent growth of Chinese foreign direct investment in the United States. The report, titled “New Neighbors: Chinese Investment in the United States by Congressional District,” breaks down for the first time Chinese commercial investment in the United States by congressional district.
Former Secretary of the Treasury Robert Rubin, Mayor Sheldon Day (Thomasville, Alabama), and Mr. Daniel Rosen, founding partner of Rhodium Group, will discuss the impact of Chinese investment in the United States, including job creation, revitalization of economically depressed areas, infrastructure improvement, and the deepening of ties between the people of the two countries, all of which help strengthen the overall bilateral relationship.
Following the webcast will be an exclusive live presentation by guest speaker, Dr. Robert A. Kapp, President of Robert A. Kapp & Associates and strategic advisor to the U.S.-China Specialty Group at Burson-Marsteller.
The webcast will be moderated by National Committee President Steve Orlins.
