Maui, Hawaii (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
A gala reception, symposium, artist lectures and demonstrations will kick off a special art exhibit of exquisite Japanese ceramics at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC) beginning October 21, 2012.
Soaring Voices: Recent Ceramics by Women from Japan will wrap up its North American tour at the MACCs Schaefer International Gallery from October 21, 2012, through January 6, 2013. Showcasing over 80 works of Japanese clay on loan from museums and private collections, the curated exhibit opens a fascinating window into an ancient craft that, for millennia, had shrouded its women artists in obscurity and isolation. This will be the last chance to view the exhibit before it returns to Japan.
In addition to its artistic merit, Soaring Voices is a story of triumph. Though women have long been active participants in Japans renowned ceramic arts, for centuries they were relegated to support roles. Leadership and recognition were reserved exclusively for men. A discernible shift began in the 1950s, when pioneering women ceramists began circumventing centuries of traditional social boundaries. Kyo Tsuji, for example, changed her name from the feminine Kyoko to the male Kyo in order to display and sell her work.
The creations of 25 internationally recognized women artists are included in the traveling exhibit, grouped into four generations, including those of the pioneering ceramists who helped pave the way for their younger colleagues. Many of the works are inspired by the natural world plants, shells, mountains, rivers, and the play of light and shadow while others draw from other Japanese arts, such as the dance movements of Noh Theater or kimono patterns of the Edo period.
Admission to Soaring Voices: Recent Ceramics by Women from Japan is free. Schaefer International Gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and before shows in MACCs Castle Theater. Ample parking is available for free.
Kicking off the 11-week exhibit will be a series of entertaining and educational events:

La Conner, WA (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
In an effort to help potential students better understand the art and design courses offered, the Gail Harker Creative Studies Center has changed its name to the Gail Harker Center for Creative Arts.
The name change coincides with the La Conner, Washington centers launch of a new and improved website, one that showcases the art, design and stitch work of students in numerous photo galleries, and one that facilitates online payments, student blogs and online coursework.
We hope the name change will help the public more clearly understand what we do, said Gail Harker, who founded the Center for Creative Arts in 1994 and moved it to La Conner, Washington a year ago. Fiber art encompasses so much more than just textiles and embroidery. Our new name reflects the fact that what we do is offer art and design courses using a number of different mediums in a contemporary context. Our students draw, layer, collage, paint and sew, and use color and design techniques to creating highly considered works.
Having art in our name gives us instant recognition within our industry and eliminates questions as to what Creative Studies means, Harker added.
The name change will be implemented slowly, and will not affect the art centers web address or e-mail.
The Center for Creative Arts offers certificate and diploma programs in Design and Stitch, and more than 2,000 students have come from around the world to study under Harker, who is an internationally known author and educator. The center also invites guest tutors to share their expertise through special interest classes, including the upcoming The Traditional Book class being held Oct. 31-Nov. 4 and taught by Martha Cole.
Visitors to the new website will find course calendars, useful links and instant access to Gails blog, directly from the new home page. In the future, an online store, more galleries and an online exhibition gallery will be added. One of the main features of the new website is the ability to host student galleries.
The galleries provide a glimpse of what we do, said Harker. Our students practice a visual art form and nothing can better represent that than their actual artwork.

Charles Lea Center of Spartanburg SC is Utilizing Supportive Technology to Serve Individuals With Greater Independence, Better Outcomes and Increased Cost Effectiveness
Asheville, NC (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
As Medicaid provider budgets become increasingly constrained, remote monitoring technology is emerging as a way to control costs and improve service outcomes. Supportive living environments can be managed by technology that detects potential problems such as falls, missed medications, cooking safety, and elopement.
The same support systems that allow staff to attend to individual concerns also enable consumers to live with greater choice and build skills of independent living. As funding sources realize cost savings through effective programs, they are able to serve individuals who would otherwise be on ever-growing waiting lists.
SimplyHome partner, The Charles Lea Center of Spartanburg, SC, recently celebrated the grand opening of its new Life Skills Center. An apartment within the training center is outfitted with SimplyHome technology.
The partnership with SimplyHome has enabled people with disabilities to live as we do, independently, says Jeff Ballenger, the Charles Lea Center Sr. Director of Residential Supports. The Life Skills Center is a hands-on training facility that prepares adults with special needs for residential and community independence.
We believe this is just the beginning of a shift in how providers will utilize technology in their service models, says Allen Ray, SimplyHome CEO. The Charles Lea Centers willingness to be the front runner for the use of our technology in a program setting has allowed them to serve more people with the funds that are available.
The Charles Lea Center already partners with SimplyHome to provide technology in their residential support programs to enable independent living. The SimplyHome System placed in the Life Skills Center is an accurate replica of how technology is currently being utilized in their independent living program.
SimplyHome designs and installs wireless technology products and related care-focused services. The company is committed to promoting affordable and dignified solutions for independent living specifically to aging and disabled populations nationwide. SimplyHome is known for its highly-customizable systems that are tailored to meet each customers specific needs.
SimplyHome products and services range from voice-activated environmental controls (as shown recently on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition), Personal Emergency Response Systems, GPS watches, motion sensors, and stove monitors to Virtual Care Management

Guest Service Gold, introduced by the Educational Institute in 2011, shows employees and properties how to achieve a new standard of exceptional service based on emotionally engaging with guests in memorable ways.

The attendees ranged from vice presidents to line level employees and represented hotels, restaurants, transportation companies, attractions, museums, and shopping malls. In June, another 65 Visit Orlando members completed the training, including 21 who participated in a Train the Trainer session to prepare themselves to teach Guest Service Gold to their organizations employees.
With more than 55 million visitors to Orlando each year, we pride ourselves on providing the very best in terms of customer service, said Danielle Courtenay, chief marketing officer for Visit Orlando. The Guest Service Gold training was a great opportunity for our Visitor Center team to hone their skills so that we continue to provide the level of service our visitors have come to expect.
