Michelle Gregor - Artist Talk

Saturday, August 3rd, 2024

2:00pm to 3:00pm

Join us on Saturday, August 3rd, 2024 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm for an in-depth artist talk by Triton exhibiting artist, Michelle Gregor.

 

Continuing the Bay Area Figurative tradition of Manuel Neri and Stephen DeStaebler, Michelle Gregor’s work addresses humanity, timelessness and balance. Gregor is known for her complex multi-fired surfaces, using stains and washes which achieve a painterly quality rarely achieved in ceramics.

A new body of work premiering at the Triton Museum, Palace of Leaves, explores our connection with the natural world. Gregor’s abstracted human figures have taken on evolving shapes referencing arboreal forms. Before the silicon age, the Santa Clara Valley was blanketed with some of the most fertile orchards in the world and dubbed “the Valley of Heart’s Delight.” Before that, it was home to ancient native oaks and redwoods. Trees have been witness to human achievement and folly, here Gregor studies our bonds to them.

This event gives you the opportunity to meet the artist and learn more about her and her work, while viewing the artist's current exhibition at the Triton Museum of Art.

This event is free and open to the public (including free parking) and will include refreshments and light snacks. Some seating will be available for the event, but will be limited as it will be held in the Warburton Gallery.

From Africa’s Extreme Poverty to California’s Stanford Executive Program

Sunday, August 11th, 2024

2:30pm to 4:30pm

Join us on Sunday, August 11th, 2024 from 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM for a riveting talk by the Tanzanian Regional Director of Karimu International Help Foundation.

 

In this talk, Shau shares the story of his life and how he has always dreamed big, even from a young age. He explains the importance of hope, resilience, dedication, and discipline in pursuing one’s goals, but also highlights that opportunities are crucial as these traits alone may not take you very far.

 

Shau Erro Ae is the Tanzanian Regional Director of Karimu International Help Foundation, a California-based NGO focusing on poverty elimination. Shau comes from Africa’s poorest of the poor, with parents and relatives who had no education. Despite his challenging circumstances, he has an incredible life story, with every reason to remain marginalized and live at the same level of poverty and lack of education as his ancestors. However, his desire to break the cycle against all odds, combined with the opportunities given to him, enabled him to attend university, learn to speak English fluently, be hired by Karimu, prosper, and now come to California to attend the Executive Program at Stanford School of Business.

 

Shau's story illustrates the core of Karimu’s beliefs: that poor people can escape poverty on their own if given the opportunity: basic sanitation, health, education, income, and financial services. There are many people like Shau in the world who have flourished and dramatically improved their lives by maintaining hope and the strength to never give up, and by seizing the opportunities provided by Karimu to pursue their dreams.

 

This event is free and open to the public (including free parking) and will include refreshments and light snacks.
