Activities and exhibition with artist, Moya Foley, at idiomART

Moya Foley was born and raised in Canada and moved to the northern coast of Ecuador in the late 1970s to find her own artistic expression. Since that time, she has been creating and teaching art in Ecuador. We are excited to have her come to idiomART in Cuenca and share her talents. She will have an art exhibition, she will speak at our first Saturday Salon, and she will be teaching two different collage classes.

Moya’s exhibition, “Sticks, Stones and Bone”, which is a collection of collage on canvas and shield sculptures, will be opening Thursday, Oct. 8, from 5 – 8 PM.
Moya says that, “The shields, as well as my collages, speak of dualities and of the existential need to be strong and yet vulnerable, to be open to both the joy and the pain. These coexisting concepts are expressed in the juxtaposition of materials – hard and soft, organic and manufactured.”

Moya will also talk about her experience as a Canadian artist living in Ecuador in our first Saturday Salon. As a young artist, recently graduated from art school in the 70s, Moya wanted to move to a place where she wouldn’t be influenced by other artists. She found herself living in a bamboo hut on the beach in Northern Ecuador and hasn’t looked back since! Moya will also read from her book titled, “Lifer: Tales of a Badgirl Artist in Ecuador”.

The Salon is Saturday, Oct. 9 at 10:30 AM. It costs $10 and light refreshments are provided.

To finish off the month, Moya will be giving a paper collage class and an object collage class. These are really fun, hands-on classes. Collage gives us the option of introducing elements that take the viewer by surprise, elements that wouldn’t normally be together, which provoke a second, deeper look at the image. For those who may not be exactly sure what they would like to create, Moya will bring sample collages of various artists and offer ideas for subject matter.

The Paper Collage class is Thursday, Oct. 28 from 9 AM – Noon
The Object Collage class is Friday, Oct. 29 from 9 AM – Noon
Each class costs $20; if you sign up for both, the cost is $35 total.

For additional information and to sign up for the salon and the classes, please contact: idiomartcuenca@gmail.com

Exhibition: Friday, Oct. 8 from 5 to 8 PM; Saturday Salon: Saturday, Oct. 9 at 10:30 AM; Paper Collage Class: Thursday, Oct. 28 from 9 AM – Noon; Object Collage Class: Friday, Oct. 29 from 9 AM – noon, fees are varied, idiomART is located at: Presidente Cordova, between Miguel Angel Estrella y Manuel Vega (diagonal from Coral Centro downtown), Cuenca.

Saturday morning language exchanges are back!

We kindly invite you to join our language exchange group Spanish-English/English-Spanish. After a year and a half of forced break, we come back with refreshed energy and a new-brand awesome location in El Centro. The sessions are aimed at people willing to improve their conversational skills putting them into practice in a realistic environment and with native speakers.

The sessions are guided by a bilingual facilitator (a teacher with extensive experience in the field) who proposes the activities and conversation topics.

It involves several people whose native language is English and several people whose native language is Spanish. We get together so that the former can practice Spanish and the later can practice English.

Apart from the language learning, the sessions bring an excellent opportunity to meet and interrelate with local people while engaging into the city cultural activities.

Therefore, this language exchange complements formal language learning. It mainly serves for putting oral language skills into practice. Additionally, it constitutes a good opportunity to experience and gain an insight into aspects of Ecuadorian culture and Cuenca local life.

October 9th, from 11 AM to 1 PM, Voluntary contribution from $2, La Terraza del Terrible, Honorato Vásquez 5-88 y Hermano Miguel, Cuenca.

People who love art and theater in Cuenca

Hi Everyone, I´m Carol Lozada, artist in Cuenca and producer of cultural projects.

I am part of a theater group in Cuenca, called “Colectivo Harapos Teatro” and we managed to be part of the “44 Theater Festival in Medellín Colombia 2021”, and we will take a play by our cast to make 5 presentations there from October 25 to October 31st. We have everything covered for the festival there, but for the trip we are organizing several solidarity initiatives to raise funds.

I come to you in search of art lovers who can and are able to donate for our trip.
Our goal is $2000 to cover the round trip of the cast and crew. I leave here the link of the group, Harapos Teatro, and the dossier of the group’s trajectory, and for the donation or donations that we achieve we can give you presentations of the plays we have for your family, companies or social groups of your choice, and if you have movement of your brand in Colombia, we could take advertising material to make it visible there.

I leave my contact and I could send you the dossier of the play.

Donations can be cash, Paypal, or airplane tickets.

It’s all pink this week at YarnLux – boutique de hilo

This week YarnLux is offering 20% off all pink yarn.

Please come and explore high quality yarns offered at affordable prices. Imported natural fibers such as merino wool, yak, camel, cashmere, silk, soy, etc. In yarn weights: fingering, sport, DK, and worsted. We have all the yarn and supplies you need for your knitting, crochet, weaving, and other fiber arts projects.

YarnLux – boutique de hilo specializes in natural fibers. One of the most wonderful properties of wool is its ability to hold its shape. Blocking is the essential step of soaking a finished project in water and letting it air dry in the perfect shape. You can block a scarf into a perfect rectangle or block a cable or lace pattern to look wonderfully uniform and relaxed. Acrylic yarns simply don’t respond to blocking the same way natural fibers do.

Visit Cuenca’s luxury yarn store, YarnLux – boutique de hilo at Mariscal Lamar 25-95 y Av De Las Americas. We are open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM.

Bernan’s Home Canned Foods, weekly posting

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next month? No wonder why we can’t remember what day it is sometimes… the problem is, the older we get, the faster the weeks and months go! It seems like I just got used to writing a new year (2021) and it’s almost time to remember to write down the next one…lol

If you are planning a Thanksgiving Dinner get together, making a dish to take to someone else’s, or just cooking for yourself, there may be something in our pantry that will help you out. Everyone has their own favorite meal. Ours was nothing fancy but the turkey was always the main attraction. If you would like to check out our product list just shoot me an email and I will send one off to you.

Next month we will be closing Bernan’s from November 18th and reopening on December 6th. Now don’t feel like we are leaving you without your favorites because that’s why I’m telling you now. We are keeping our shelves full; you will just have to shop a little earlier. Pumpkin Pies? Well, my pies are fully cooked and then frozen so all you have to do is thaw them out on your counter and enjoy with a little Chantilly. I have already been taking orders and I will have them ready for pick up or delivery in plenty of time for your dinner. They are $12 for a pie even your grandma would love.

Hope you have a good week. You can stop by most any day but please contact us first just to make sure we will be home.
