12:00 AM International Art Exhibit The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library is pleased to announce the exhibitions for January and February of 2019. In the Joseph Clayes III Gallery we will be exhibiting "Beyond Blue—Mavi—Ma Vie," featuring the works of Beliz Iristay and Irène de Watteville. The two female ceramicists, one from Turkey and one from France, will collaborate in a provocative and surrealist installation. One of their foci is the traditional Iznik and French blue glaze of their native countries. In this joint exhibition they explore beyond the color of the title, with each showing their personal creative clay works. In the Rotunda Gallery, we will honor the late book artist Genie Shenk with an exhibition of her artist's books. The exhibits will be on display from January 12 through March 9. Please see our website for more details on the exhibits and the hours that the library is open.

8:30 AM Talk: Dr. Melila Hellner-Eshed We invite you to listen, learn and explore together at our upcoming Scholar-in-Residence weekend with world-renowned theologian and pioneer of Jewish mystical studies, Dr. Melila Hellner-Eshed.

Melila Hellner-Eshed, Ph.D., is a research fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute. She is a professor of Jewish mysticism and Zohar in the department of Jewish Studies at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. She received her degree from Hebrew University under the tutelage of Professor Yehuda Liebes.

For the past two decades, Melila has been a central figure in the Israeli renaissance of study of Jewish texts by Israeli adults of all paths of life in various frameworks. She initiated and directs the Rabbinic Students Seminar, a program for rabbinic students from all denominations spending a year in Israel. She is also the co-director of the Institute's Beit Midrash program. She has been teaching and working with Jewish communities in North America, Europe and the former Soviet Union for many years.

Her book, "And a River Flows from Eden" - On the Language of Mystical Experience in the Zohar," was published by Stanford University Press in 2009.

Melila is on the faculty of the Institute of Jewish Spirituality and is active in the 'Sulha' - a reconciliation project that brings together Israelis and Palestinians.

12:00 PM Old Town San Diego Antonio Garra Day Enjoy a celebration of the life of Native American cheif Antonio Garra who led a Native American rebellion in 1851.

The day will include Native American singers and dancers, lectures and displays.

Garra led what is now known at the Garra Uprising against white settlers in response to taxation without representation, an utter lack of legal redress, forced labor, land confiscation, legalized murder and other injustices to California Native Americans. The State of California was established in the prior year and the first official act was An Act for the Government and Protection of Indians. While the act did ordain certain projections for Indians it also legalized up to four months indentured servitude for Native Americans who had been assessed civil fines or had no obvious source of employment. The act also specified "in no case shall a white man be convicted on any offence upon the testimony of an Indian". Native Americans justifiably felt under siege nearly everywhere in California. Wars, raids and European diseases had laid waste to most native populations. Garra tapped into the resulting anger and raised a force of Cupeño and Diegueño peoples to oppose white oppression. Several violent encounters with white troops, sheepherders and ranchers (most notably John Warner) ensued. Eventually Garra was captured not by any opposing whites but by a rival Native American military leader Juan Antonio from the Cahuilla tribe. Juan Antonio claimed to have done so to prevent the wholesale slaughter of Native Americans in response to the uprising. However, on several previous occasions Antonio had collaborated with American military forces against other Native Americans (as well as white outlaws). Garra was executed by firing squad in Old Town San Diego and is believed to be buried underneath what is now San Diego Avenue and has a grave stone in memory of his life located in El Campo Santo Cemetery in Old Town.—historical summary by T.

2:30 PM DIY Miso Soup Workshop In this hands-on workshop, you will learn all about miso, a magical fermented bean paste that originated in Japan many centuries ago. Miso is full of umami and is used to flavor everything from soups to marinades and salad dressings, stir-fries, to eggs. We will talk about the history of miso, its many different forms, and then make a large batch using various legumes. You'll get to taste various misos to understand the fermentation process. You'll get to pack a mason jar full of miso to take home (but you'll have to wait a year to eat it). Then we'll enjoy the most popular miso dish-- homemade soup!

7:30 PM Music: Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas The musical partnership between Alasdair Fraser, long regarded as Scotland's premier fiddle ambassador, and the sizzlingly-talented Californian cellist Natalie Haas may not seem an obvious one, but the duo's dazzling teamwork, driving rhythms, and their shared passion for improvising on the melody and the groove of Scottish tunes has helped reconstruct and revive the Scottish tradition of playing dance music on violin and cello.
