Craft Beer Nation0For Episode 164 of our #FridayNightHangout  we are taking a break from a specific style and diving into one of our favorite Craft Breweries: @104060331429659495608  We'll be drinking and discussing some fantastic #craftbeer  from one of the top breweries in the country.  Expect to see some big favorites and hopefully some new ones.  And we're looking forward to discussing the impact Stone has had on the American Craft Beer scene from all aspects.  From their love of Hops to their impact on the updating of many State's outdated beer laws, Stone certainly is a big fish in the industry.  And a favorite of many of us here at Craft Beer Nation. What are your thoughts on *Stone Brewing*?  Let us know. Look to the comments on the event here to see what people are planning to drink on air! *To WATCH*: Respond "Yes" to the Event Invite and you will receive a notification when the Event goes live. That will bring you back to this event and there will be a link to the live feed here. *To JOIN the HOA*: Respond "Yes" to the event, make sure you are following  +Craft Beer Nation, and comment here that you want to participate. If we don't know you want to join, we can't add you to the circle of invitees. *To JOIN the AFTER-PARTY*: Respond "Yes" to the event, make sure you are following +Craft Beer Nation, and comment here that you want to join just the after-party. You will get an notification that the hangout is starting and a link to join us. Just watch and wait for us to go off the air before clicking the Join. You may still get a warning about joining a Hangout on Air, but rest assured that once we hit the button to stop broadcasting, it would take all of Hillary Clinton's emails to get it running again.

William Carlos Williams (1883 – 1963)

Williams was an American physician and poet that invented new ways of making and hearing verse lines. He did this by deliberately ignoring the conventions of meter, rhyme or stanza. Meter, the rhythmic pattern in poems, is achieved with lines that pause at the end, called end-stopped lines. Williams used enjambment, a run-on line, purposely violating natural pauses and changing syntactic direction.

As with most things in life, when encountering something new, we experience it from many different levels. We can look at a painting’s composition, lines, colour or the painting can evoke an emotion or sensation that speaks more than the visual vocabulary. Music and poetry work the same way.

William Carlos Williams’ poem “The Dance” captures merriment in words as Brueghel has done with paint in "The Kermess".

Paul Cézanne (1839 - 1906)
Lac d’Annecy, 1896

Paul Cézanne is considered to have set the direction of modern art. Admired as one of the world’s greatest artists, he challenged convention and pioneered new techniques in painting.

Cézanne was not interested in reproducing what he saw in nature but was interested in the relationship between space, light and matter.

There is a sense of timelessness to his works because he eliminated the convention of linear light. The source and direction of light cast shadows that give clues to the time of day or season. Cézanne stopped time by eliminating directional light. The light in his paintings are scattered and diffused; without clues necessary to tell time.

Cézanne also changed the way space is perceived by weaving broad planes of space with equally broad planes of mass; demonstrating that space is notempty.more »

Sol LeWitt (1928 – 2007), Wall Drawing #1084, 2003
Stedelijk Museum,  Amsterdam

The 1970’s saw the introduction of conceptual art. Artists started to appreciate the purity of minimalism, that the idea was the art and not the object itself. This was a reaction against the commodification of art. A work of art is the idea, this notion challenged the assumption that a work of art is defined only by the visual qualities.

Sol LeWitt first worked as a graphic designer and became interested in painting. He was inspired by Eadweard Muybridge’s time-sequence photographs of men and animals in motion and wanted to explore the ideas of series.

Sol LeWitt first worked as a graphic designer and became interested in painting. He was inspired by Eadweard Muybridge’s time-sequence photographs of men and animals in motion and wanted to explore the ideas of series.

LeWitt started to express his ideas in text, as instructions. The actual painting was carried out by assistants according to LeWitt’s written specifications. The assistants prepared the lines of the composition and applied the washes of colour. Each band was built up with many different coats of separate colours, some bands as many as twelve separate applications. These layers gave the final colour a deep and changing appearance.

As architects detail their ideas on blueprints, it is how LeWitt viewed his art. For LeWitt, art existed in the form of an idea, his instructions allowed the idea to be recreated indefinitely; that art is transcendent.

His concept of art is that of a lived experience; without permanence in the way that life is but the idea lives on.___

Pieter Pietersz (1540 – 1603)
Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

In 16th-century Netherlands, numerous societies liked to commemorate their service and affiliations in group portraits. They were often painted for display in public places such as guild and militia halls, reinforcing the status of the group in the community.

Looking at the group, what is your guess as to their profession?
Answer, later.

Cycle Culture

Year after year, Amsterdam and Copenhagen continue to be ranked at the top, as the world’s most bicycle-friendly cities. And year after year, Toronto has grappled with trying to resolve its downtown gridlock traffic. So why is Amsterdam so successful, while Toronto talks of alleviating downtown traffic flip between idling and stalled.
 
In crowded urban centers it makes sense to decrease the number of cars and to optimize public transit and pedestrian flow.

Before World War II, cycling was how most people in the Netherlands got around. By the 1950’s and 1960’s, with better economic conditions, cars became more prevalent for the Dutch. As with many other cities, roads became congested and valuable space was taken up for parking lots.

Before World War II, cycling was how most people in the Netherlands got around. By the 1950’s and 1960’s, with better economic conditions, cars became more prevalent for the Dutch. As with many other cities, roads became congested and valuable space was taken up for parking lots.

Two events happened in the 1970’s that changed the Dutch’s direction for city planning. The first was an increase in traffic fatalities, 3000 deaths due to traffic accidents in 1971, 450 of them children. The second was the 1973 Middle East oil crisis.

The confluence of these two pressures caused the Dutch government to make policies to become less dependent on foreign energy and to improve road safety to address traffic fatalities.

A bicycle infrastructure was the solution, a vast network of cycle paths was built, separate but parallel to motorized traffic. But building cycle paths was not the only initiative, to support the cycle culture, the paths made cycling faster and more convenient, while at the same time, the Dutch disincentivized car use by making driving more expensive and inconvenient.

Cycling culture is also integrated into the Dutch education system, proficiency in cycling is part of the school curriculum. Dutch children grow up with cycling as part of their national identity.

As with most things in life, for change to happen, it is not just a simple matter of building cycle paths but the more difficult task of getting people to adopt. Amsterdam and Copenhagen are clear examples of how cycle cultures work. To solve Toronto’s downtown gridlock, we need to stop talking about solutions that are already evident and act.___

Bartholomeus van der Helst, Militia Banquet, 1648
Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

Manspreading

Manspreading is a fairly new critical term to describe the natural splay of the legs by men on crowded public transit, taking up more space. But men have been displaying their splayed cheer for quite some time.

The Militia Banquet is painted by Bartholomeus van der Helst in 1648, depicting the Celebration of the Treaty of Münster . After the end of the Eighty Years’ War with Spain, it was a landmark peace treaty in Dutch history and it recognized the Dutch Republic as an independent nation in Europe.

Bartholomeus van der Helst went to town in depicting this lavish party. The table separates the people of prominence from the rest of the merry-makers, a total of twenty-five people in this group portrait. The still-life of silver goblets, drinking glasses and thesil... more »

Manspreading

Manspreading is a fairly new critical term to describe the natural splay of the legs by men on crowded public transit, taking up more space. But men have been displaying their splayed cheer for quite some time.

The Militia Banquet is painted by Bartholomeus van der Helst in 1648, depicting the Celebration of the Treaty of Münster . After the end of the Eighty Years’ War with Spain, it was a landmark peace treaty in Dutch history and it recognized the Dutch Republic as an independent nation in Europe.

Bartholomeus van der Helst went to town in depicting this lavish party. The table separates the people of prominence from the rest of the merry-makers, a total of twenty-five people in this group portrait. The still-life of silver goblets, drinking glasses and the silver drinking horn all contribute to the importance of the occasion.

The painting also details men’s fashion during this golden age of Dutch history. The 17th century was a class conscious time, where each class had its own attire, with some colours reserved for only specific echelons of society; wealth was colour coded. 

Most prominent at the front are the men in basic black, with diagonal slits to reveal the contrasting yellow colour beneath. Black was an expensive colour as it is obtained from indigo dye, brought to the Netherlands from India.

Captivatingly cool are the mancessories.  The bright coloured sashes, some attached with enormous rosettes at the back are a party must-have. The thick ruff collars gave the older gentlemen a certain je ne sais quoi, while the younger gentlemen sport the more modern flat collars.

Rarely in a painting is a trouser fly so prominently displayed as in the guard sitting at the front, doing some manspreading. The button fastening was a modern convention at the time and the gold buttons displayed here gives this man a fashion licence to thrill.

Manspreading may well be a cheerful fashion flirtation.___

Rijksmuseum

At the center of Amsterdam is Rijksmuseum, and it has been there since 1885. The museum was closed for renovations that took ten years, it was reopened in 2013.

The original design had a passage integrated through the middle of the museum for horse-drawn carriages, later came trams, motor cars and bicycles. It was a direct passage to connect the two halves of the city, through the center.

During the renovations there was a move to close this passage, so that there would be one main entrance. The people of Amsterdam protested to maintain the passage for bicycles and after heated deliberation, the center passage of the museum was maintained.

This consideration speaks to the community spirit and national pride of the Dutch identity.

Painting the Fourth Dimension

Claude Monet, a major figure in the impressionism movement, sought to expand the fleeting moments of time, to make the present more important than the past or future. While Cézanne was experimenting with timelessness, Monet investigated the transitory nature of time.

Monet realized that he couldn’t capture the true essence of an object by painting it, in only one frozen moment of time, he needed to explore how the object changed in time.

In 1891, Monet began painting the same scene, from the same point of view but at different times of the day. He painted the entrance of the cathedral in Rouen forty times, when placed in sequence, the works created a cathedral that existed in time as well as in space.

Monet painted a series of haystacks twenty different times to show how they change with the seasons. In order to really understand the nature of a subject, Monet has said that you must see them through time as well as in space.

Through his series, Monet had invented a way to see time and that the essence of an object must have four directions, the three planes of length, width, height and the fourth, time.___

William Carlos Williams (1883 – 1963)

Williams was an American physician and poet that invented new ways of making and hearing verse lines. He did this by deliberately ignoring the conventions of meter, rhyme or stanza. Meter, the rhythmic pattern in poems, is achieved with lines that pause at the end, called end-stopped lines. Williams used enjambment, a run-on line, purposely violating natural pauses and changing syntactic direction.

As with most things in life, when encountering something new, we experience it from many different levels. We can look at a painting’s composition, lines, colour or the painting can evoke an emotion or sensation that speaks more than the visual vocabulary. Music and poetry work the same way.

William Carlos Williams’ poem “The Dance” captures merriment in words as Brueghel has done with paint in "The Kermess".

William Carlos Williams’ poem “The Dance” captures merriment in words as Brueghel has done with paint in "The Kermess".

Williams’ technique was best suited for the modulation of speed. In his poem ‘The Dance’, his rhythmic ability actualizes carefree merriment.

The Dance

In Brueghel's great picture, The Kermess,
the dancers go round, they go round and
around, the squeal and the blare and the
tweedle of bagpipes, a bugle and fiddles
tipping their bellies (round as the thick-
sided glasses whose wash they impound)
their hips and their bellies off balance
to turn them. Kicking and rolling
about the Fair Grounds, swinging their butts, those
shanks must be sound to bear up under such
rollicking measures, prance as they dance
in Brueghel's great picture, The Kermess.___

Paul Cézanne (1839 - 1906)
Lac d’Annecy, 1896

Paul Cézanne is considered to have set the direction of modern art. Admired as one of the world’s greatest artists, he challenged convention and pioneered new techniques in painting.

Cézanne was not interested in reproducing what he saw in nature but was interested in the relationship between space, light and matter.

There is a sense of timelessness to his works because he eliminated the convention of linear light. The source and direction of light cast shadows that give clues to the time of day or season. Cézanne stopped time by eliminating directional light. The light in his paintings are scattered and diffused; without clues necessary to tell time.

Cézanne also changed the way space is perceived by weaving broad planes of space with equally broad planes of mass; demonstrating that space is notempty.more »

Cézanne also changed the way space is perceived by weaving broad planes of space with equally broad planes of mass; demonstrating that space is not empty.

Another of his innovations was the removal of single-point perspective by introducing multiple perspective points, something unheard of before.

Lac d’Annecy is one of his most impressive landscapes. The surface of the water is opaque and motionless. The colours are painted in broad strokes, giving it a solid quality as if the same weight and volume of the foliage and mountains behind it.

The painting is filled with his sensibilities of balance, harmony and timelessness.___
