Nan's Notes: October
AT ARTS COLLINWOOD
James March in the Gallery Friday Oct 12
Amphion’s String Quartet Sunday Oct 14
An artsy weekend coming up in October, with James March’s “Quantum Space” opening in the gallery on Friday Oct 12, 6-9 pm (the show runs through November 3) plus the next M4M chamber concert on Sunday Oct 14, at 4 pm (come early for a glass of wine or afternoon tea); Amphion’s string quartet will play for us.
James March has been “exploring pictorial space in vivid, geometric abstractions,
producing images that are an imaginative, even disorienting, blend of physical and mental spaces.” The one I saw is mildly dizzying on a postcard, I’m looking forward to seeing the real thing. The exhibition is presented courtesy of Tregoning and Co. gallery.
James will also appear for Wine, a Burning Desire for Cigarettes, and a Leading Question, Dan Tranberg’s monthly Art Talk on Thursday Oct 25 at 7pm.
Gallery Hours: Thursday – Saturday 1-4pm & by appointment.

Rockin' Brunch with DJ Dave Desimone Sunday Oct 7
Culture warlord Dave Desimone is known for spinning his vinyl at the Beachland in his PJs and always encourages patrons to come in their flannels and bunny slippers so they can better enjoy his eccentric mix of tunes. Plus you’ve got those yummy hot brunch selections to warm your tummy, like Eggs Beachland or fruit-infused pancakes. And Bloody Marys are ready and waiting with homemade pickled veggies as garnish. Brunch on Sunday is its own world at Beachland, especially when Dave Desimone is at the controls.

SEND A MESSAGE AT THE LASALLE
In case you hadn’t noticed, the messages on the LaSalle marquee are a lot easier to read now: the Friends of the LaSalle have bought some new letters. If you’d like to help pay for them, send a check to Northeast Shores at 317 East 156 St. with LaSalle Marquee in the memo line--or you could drop a check off in person, and fill out your What I Like About the Neighborhood survey while you’re there. Or you can donate at the next East 185th St. Block Watch meeting in October.
And did you know you can rent the marquee for a special announcement, birthday greeting, wedding anniversary or to promote your next event? Contact John Boksansky at Northeast Shores, 216-481-7660 ext. 23, for the rental details.
AT THE MARKET
The market was a veritable cornucopia on Saturday – corn, squash in various colors, red peppers, cabbage, potatoes, a few tomatoes, pears, a few apples, eggplants both white and purple, onions, lettuce, greens galore – and much, much more—even some watermelons.
Save the Date
The market’s annual fundraiser, Taste of Autumn, will take place on Monday October 8 at the Beachland Ballroom. No details yet, but we don’t really need them – the market always rounds up creative chefs who turn fresh local produce into delicious little helpings of which we eat far too many. Tickets $35 from the market and on-line at Beachland Ballroom.
Coit Road Farmers’ Market Coit Road Farmer's Market is located at the corner of Coit & Woodworth Road in East Cleveland. www.coitmarket. org. Open year-round Saturday 8 am to 1 pm; April-November Wednesdays 10 am – 1 pm. 216-249-5455 during market hours.
If you’d like to join the exotic community of the beach streets, a well-cared-for single-family home has become available on Groveland Club Drive: three bedrooms, one bath, beautifully landscaped (that’s true – I’ve observed it over 25 years of neighborhood walks). There’s a park at the end of the street, with access to a (very nice) private beach. For more info please contact: email@example.com
PLEASE VISIT US, GOVERNOR KASICH
Stephen Love reports that signatures on his Change.com petition are growing; our Ohio representatives have sent their own letter, and if you’re tempted to take that extra step, it’s a good model, so I’ve attached it.
