BY ROBBIE CLARK | EDITOR

White, Greer & Maggard

elcome to our annual Fall Arts Preview – a concise glimpse of the upcoming arts and entertainment options coming to the area’s stages, streets and galleries during the 2012 - 2013 season. Concise, but extensive. This is our fifth installment of this special section, and it’s one of our favorites to produce. All of us here at the magazine hold various forms of the arts in high regard, so it’s fun to get a sneak peak at what’s coming in the months ahead, and maybe even try to weasel some “press passes” for some upcoming performances, though I’m usually just told to sit in the back and keep quiet. Loyal readers through the years will notice one thing in particular about our annual preview: it gets beefier every year. And that’s a good thing, for two reasons – one is selfish and one altruistic: First, it means that more and more groups and organizations and ragtag bands of per formers and artists are taking it upon themselves to make Lexington’s cultural of ferings more robust – more art exhibits, more ballets, more special guest conductors, more concerts, more festivals, more curtain calls, more stuf f to do. It’s a great thing to happen for our city’s character, albeit a little rough on our wallets as we make retur n trips to the box office. Still, and I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but please let me reiterate, a vibrant arts scene is essential to a city’s prosperity. It does all sorts of things to help bolster a local economy, like attract young professionals to live and work in the area and woo visitors into town for an evening or the weekend. Think of it as an investment in the community as you’re ordering tickets or paying at the door . Second, it means that local arts administrators and volunteer marketing coordinators find our Fall Arts Preview useful enough to want to be included, which is a great thing to happen for my job security. Please take the time to peruse our Fall Arts Preview, which begins on page 15. We may have worked hard to compile the hundreds of listings from dozens of area venues and organizations, but I know we haven’t worked as hard as all of these individual artists and organizers in their various creative pursuits. They’re excited for you to see their stuff, and we all need to be excited about going out to see it.

In Chinese culture, the holiday is second only to the New Year celebration, and locally the festival will include entertainment provided by Chinese American dancers, singers and musicians, folk dance demonstrations, kids activities, Chinese food, and, of course, a wide selection of moon cakes – which legend has it were used as a means of communication to instigate an uprising in China against Mongol rules of the Yuan Dynasty in the 14 century. The festival is presented with support from UK Confucius Institute, Beaumont Centre Family YMCA, Kentucky Association of Chinese Language Teachers, and University of Kentucky Chinese Students and Scholars Association.

The Parents, Friends and Families of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) has received funding from JustFund KY to begin an intense support program. The initiative, called PFLAG Stay Strong Program, will empower parents, family and friends to become allies of LGBT members, to accept themselves and their LGBT member. The PFLAG Stay Strong Program will provide a four-week program – scheduled four times over the next year – for a total of 40 individuals .

Southsider Magazine September 2012

During the sessions, participants will be building their own tool kit to take away from the experience to not only maintain their support and acceptance, but also build acceptance within the people they are in contact with. Additionally, participants will have a network of nine other individuals that they can rely on for peer mentoring and advice, as well as the assistance of PFLA G volunteers. Ultimately, the outcome is to create 40 educated and empowered advocates of family and friends in the Lexington community. PFLAG Lexington promotes the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons, their families and friends through support, education and advocacy. As an organization, PFLAG provides opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity. For more information about the program or the organization, visit www.pflaglex.org.

Community Action Council announces 2012 Poverty Forum The Community Action Council will hold its 2012 Poverty Forum from 6 – 9 p.m. Sept. 28 at the Lexington Convention Center. The featured speaker is Tavis Smiley, best known as the host of the last night PBS talk show “Tavis Smiley”and also Public Radio International’s “Tavis Smiley Show.” “The Poverty Forum is Community Action Council’s most important event to raise community awareness about the 15 percent of our citizens , including 28 percent of our children, who lack the


resources to meet even their basic, survival needs,” said Jack Burch, executive director of the Community Action Council. Aside form making people aware of how many people in our community are dealing with issues that stem from living on incomes that fall below the federal poverty guidelines, the event has a more subtle educational aspect – it offers facts to replace erroneous ideas and images.

Along with quilts, many other items, from woodworking to jewelry, will be available from dozens of vendors. The Lutheran School of Lexington will be selling drinks, baked goods and lunch items. Crafters interested in having a booth at the fair can contact St. John’s Lutheran Church at (859) 277-6391.

WORDS keynote presentation with author and food critic

The Poverty Forum, while supported by private contributions, is not a fundraiser for the Community Action Council. Burch said that its purpose is informational.

Alltech’s soon-to-open distillery added to state’s bourbon trail

followed by Q&A with Chef Ouita Michel

If any revenue remains above the costs of the event, the surplus is added to operating funds, so as to serve more people in need. To purchase tickets, visit www.povertyforum.com or call (859) 244-2247.

When Alltech opens its new distillery at the end of September, not only will it be the first new distillery built in Lexington in more than a century , it will also join the “trail” of one of Kentucky’s signature industries.

City offering free classes for minority and womenowned businesses The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government will hold free classes during September for women and minority-owned businesses seeking to do work with the government. A new class – “How to do business with LFUCG, the Fayette County Public Schools and UK Facilities Management” – has been added to the class roster from 4 - 6 p.m. Sept. 17. Other classes include “Minority Business Enterprise Certification” (9 – 11 a.m. Sept. 13), “Kentucky Minority and Women Business Certifications” (9 – 11 a.m. Sept. 14), “Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Certification” (9 – 11 a.m. Sept. 21), “Women Business Enterprise Certification” (9 – 11 a.m. Sept. 26) and “Small Business Administration Certifications and Programs” (9 – 11 a.m. Sept. 27). The classes are held in Room B109 in the basement of the LFUCG Government Center, 200 East Main St. Free parking is available in the Government Annex Parking Garage on Main Street. Participants should bring their parking ticket to class to be stamped for free parking. Owners of women and minority-owned companies can take part in the classes by registering online. To register online go to www.lexingtonky.gov/MWBE.

Annual fundraiser helps group make quilts for the less forunate St. John’s Lutheran Church (516 Pasadena Dr.) will be hosting a Quilt and Craft Fair 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. Oct. 6. This is the only fundraiser for the church’s quilting group, which gets together on a weekly basis to make quilts for Lexington organizations that help the less fortunate.

Opening Sept. 28 with tours starting Oct. 1, Alltech’s Downtown Distillery will be the home of Town Branch Bourbon and Lyons Reserve, a single malt whiskey. It will also mark the first time a new city has been added to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail since it was formed in 1999 by the Kentucky Distillers Association. With the distinction Lexington joins Lawrenceburg (Four Roses and Wild Turkey), Bardstown (Heaven Hill), Clermont (Jim Beam), Loretto (Maker’s Mark) and Versailles (Woodford Reserve) as cities along the popular tourist draw. In the past five years, more than 2 million visitors have toured the trail, and last year nearly 12,000 visited each of the six member distilleries. The addition of Town Branch’s home makes Lexington the first urban area to join the tour. “Any time the second city in the state can pull one on the major city, I guess that’s always good for competition,” Alltech’s Founder and CEO Dr. Pearse Lyons said in a nod to Louisville, which has made a push in recent years for “urban bourbon.”

“It’s the only distillery in the middle of a city and I think that’s going to speak volumes. That means people can walk from the Hyatt or the downtown Hilton, they can walk over here and see the distillery and get a feel for what whisk ey is all about,” Lyons said. Visitors along the Bourbon Trail are given a passport for each of the soon-to-be seven distilleries to stamp upon competition of a tour. Once all distilleries have been visited, the passport is redeemable for a Bourbon Trail t-shirt featuring silhouettes of each distillery’s bourbon bottle. “When you broke ground, I remember a comment you made,” Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau President Jim Browder said to Lyons during a press conference, “you hoped tourists would come. All I have to say is: ‘hold on.’” – ERIK A. CARLSON

It would be completely unfair for urban far mers to hurt property values of people in their neighborhoods who do not share their vision for home-raised pigs and goats. Fayette County is a heavily agricultural area, with over 73 percent of our land designated as some kind of agricultural zone. There is plenty of far m land where folks can raise animals within 20 minutes of downtown. We can and should raise our own far m animals in Lexington, but not within our urban areas and residential neighborhoods. Cities adopt zoning rules in the first place so that similar and compatible land uses can be grouped together. And citizens who bought their homes in a residential neighbor hood, and not an agricultural zone, have the right to protect their home values and to choose to live away from the sights, sounds and smells of pigs and goats, even small ones. And those cackling chickens.

MIXING IT UP

Local architecture firm has turned an abandoned Lexington site into a bustling mixed-use development

BY SCOTT HAMILTON CONTRIBUTING WRITER

M

artha Dryden gets excited as she explains all that has happened at this previously dilapidated part of Lexington to create Parkside, a mixeduse venture that includes af fordable apartments and commercial space. The smile on her face indicated she was trying to temper her enthusiasm for all that’s still to come at 1060 Cross Keys Rd., a stop less than half a mile away from Alexandria Drive that will be featured in the Women in Architecture Tour on Sept. 22. Dryden is the director of operations for AU Associates, a development fir m headquartered in Lexington that spearheaded Parkside. The or ganization has completed more than $63-million worth of projects in Kentucky and West Virginia, creating in excess of 350 residential units and over 100,000 square feet of commer-

10

cial space during its 21 years of existence. But the Parkside project – which totaled a little more than $6 million and is tucked away from the usual Lexington hubs of downtown, Hambur g or Beaumont – is a bit extra special to the AU Associates. “It’s nice to be in our own backyard,” Dryden said. “We work in a lot of rural communities two hours away, so it’s really nice to have something in our backyard and to see the positive impact it can have on our home community.” That would help explain the added bounce in Dryden’s step as she gives an informal tour of AU Associates’ latest example of repurposing a vacant or under-utilized property. Parkside was formerly the location of the Gardenside Cabana Club and later the Cross Keys YWCA. The site was abandoned (it had actually been condemned by LFUCG code enforcement) and had become the subsequent target of vandalism as well as

other questionable activity –– a general eyesore for the community. AU Associates was approached by Citizen’s Union Bank, a Shelbyville-based institution that held the mortgage on the property and was interested in helping work toward tax credits to refurbish the land. The group then proceeded to submit the necessary paperwork to secure funding through af fordable housing tax credits and other funds through the Kentucky Housing Corporation and the city’s HOME funds once site control had been obtained. The land cost approximately $700,000, with the entire project totaling $6.5 million. That figure was tempered thanks to a design by Chantelle N oble of Cincinnati’s City Studios Architecture that leveraged the site’s elevation changes, thus minimizing the need to move excess amounts of dirt. Ground was broken in December 2010 with a dedication ceremony for the finished ROBBIE CLARK projectPHOTOS heldBYjust more than 12 months

Southsider Magazine September 2012

later on Jan. 25, 2012. The finished product is a completely handicap-accessible four-story building managed by Winterwood, Inc. Painted in muted shades of lime, grey and taupe for a very contemporary feel, the structure also adheres to a required zone change to a P-1 that called for commercial space to be established on the ground floor. Parkside’s base houses a handful of organizations, including the Sunflower Kids, an 11-year -old non-profit agency that provides safe, af fordable and supervised child visitation primarily for families affected by domestic violence and child abuse. Bluegrass Domestic V iolence also has a community outreach of fice onsite that offers access to counseling and support groups. The mix of commercial and residential occupants has thus far been a productive combination. Sunflower Kids was located off Nicholasville Road in a space that had been previously occupied by a


dental office prior to its move to Parkside. But a lack of space and rooms not suited to offer a “nurturing environment” wasn’t a good fit. The agency jumped at the chance to customize an area after being approached by AU Associates through a liaison with the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government. “The facility itself is per fect,” said Stephanie Hoffman, executive director of Sunflower Kids, which moved into Parkside in February. “The structure, the layout, the way AU Associates worked with us to design it to suit our needs – it’s perfect. AU Associates has helped us think about our needs and really took that into account during the design phase. Because we have more space here, we’re better able to account for the safety needs of families.” The top three floors are the core of the development, however. Parkside, which has a keyless electronic entry system, consists of 34 resi-

dential units ranging from one to three bedrooms, with 600-1,000 square feet. Each unit has a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer hook-up connections, central heat and air conditioning, and other amenities such as Ener gy Star windows and a private balcony. Apartments are high-speed Inter net accessible and tenants can receive discounted cable television rates through a bulk agreement through Insight. There are also shared common areas such as a breezeway patio with tables, a community room and laundry facility on each floor. The building reached full capacity by the end of May, less than five months after officially opening. Talks to create a second phase for the six-acre property are in the infantile stages, pending the release of the Kentucky Housing Corporation’s qualified allocation plan that will provide guidelines for future projects. Dryden, however, said it’s feasible the number of units could easily dou-

Martha Dryden (left), the director of operations for AU Associates, says it has been encouraging to see the positive impact the company's pr oject has had on the community. Located off Alexandria Drive in a site that was formerly condemned by the Le xingtonFayette County Government, the mixed-use Parkside development features 34 affordable residential units and two non-profit organizations. Dedicated in January 2012, the building will be a featured stop on the Sept. 22 Women in Architecture Tour. PHOTOS BY ROBBIE CLARK

2012 Lexington Residential Architecture Tour The Parkside development will be open to the public during the 2012 Lexington Residential Architecture Tour, hosted by AIA EKC’s Women in Architecture group, from 1 - 6 p.m. Sept. 22.

PHOTOS BY ROBBIE CLARK

In building the Parkside development, local architecture firm AU Associates worked with future occupants Sunflower Kids, a non-profit that provides safe supervised visitation for families affected by domestic violence and child abuse, to customize a design best suited to their needs. The four-story building is completely handicap accessible and features a number of breezeways and community rooms for residents.

ble given the amount of now-landscaped land surrounding the building that is usable. “AU Associates’ Parkside development has helped a blighted area to become revitalized,” said Peggy Henson, 11th District Council Member. “Not only did the development help with the horrendous blight, it also helped several individuals and families to have a safe, affordable place to live. I have a strong belief that no matter what your level of income might be, we all deserve a high quality of life. The Parkside development has certainly provided that higher quality of life for its tenants.”

The tour will showcase the residential work of several architects, with a variety of housing types ranging from high design twists on the single-family home to a multi-family, mixed-use development. Indicative of the economic climate, several of the projects are renovations, which add to the unique life of their neighborhoods and enhance the lifestyle of the inhabitants. Participants in the tour will have an opportunity to explore these spaces – each of which has evolved in response to the specific needs and desires of each client, available budgets, the context and character of the surrounding neighborhoods, and sustainable considerations – firsthand. The project architects and designers will be present during the tour to discuss the projects and design processes, and to point out details and special features of each home.

Your water bill’s about to...

That’s right. Split. Same fees. No increase. Just two bills. One from Kentucky American Water just for water. And one from our city for basic services we use every day. Kentucky American made a decision to discontinue billing city services as of September.

Loggerhead Apparel for Men & W Women omen

American Grown. American Made.

So this month, look for a bill from LEXserv – our city’s new billing program for sanitary sewers, water quality management and landfill. LEXserv fees will pay for three basic city services that used to be on your water bill: Water quality which improves storm sewers to keep streams clean. Disposal of waste to landfills and keeping our sanitary sewer system working.

theatre Actors Guild of Lexington All productions are held in the South Elkhorn Theatre (4383 Old Harrodsburg Rd.). Showtimes are 8 p.m. Fri., Sat. and opening night; 2 p.m. Sun. (859) 309-1909 www.actors-guild.org November Nov. 1 - 11 It’s November in a presidential election year, and incumbent Charles Smith’s chances for reelection are looking grim. Amidst the biggest fight of his political career, the president has to find time to pardon a couple of turkeys, and this simple PR event inspires Smith to risk it all in attempt to win back public support. With playwright David Mamet’s characteristic no-holds-barred style, “November” is a scathingly hilarious take on the state of America today and the lengths to which people will go to win. RED Jan. 24 – Feb. 3, 2013 Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art: a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing. Seminar Feb. 28 – March 10 “Seminar” follows four young writers: Kate, Martin, Douglas, and Izzy, and their professor, Leonard. Each student has paid Leonard $5,000 for a ten-weeklong writing seminar to be held in Kate’s Upper West Side apartment. As tensions arise and romance falls between students, they clash over their writing, their relations and their futures. William Shakespeare’s Land of the Dead May 9 - 19 London, 1599. After the Globe’s inaugural performance of “Henry V,” Shakespeare fends off an embittered Will Kemp, furious about Falstaff’s removal, and Francis Bacon. But when the company’s costumer is bitten by a plague-ridden madman and the Queen and her men arrive seeking safety, life in the playhouse takes a turn for the worse. A comedic homage to zombie films and a carefully researched drama about Shakespeare and his authorship. TBA June 13 - 23 The final show of Actors Guild’s 29th season will be announced later in the season. Leaving this slot open will allow AGL to bring the best possible season closer to the Lexington community.

Feb. 10 – 13, 17 – 20, 2013 The tale of a married, middle-aged architect whose life crumbles when he falls in love with a goat, the play focuses on the limits of an ostensibly liber al society. Through showing this family in crisis, playwright Edward Albee challenges audience members to question their own morality in the face of social taboos. The play also features many language games and grammatical arguments in the middle of catastrophes and existential disputes among the characters. The Trial of God April 14 – 17, 21 – 24 “The Trial of God” is based on the trial of God that was held by the inmates in Auschwitz and witnessed by the author, Elie Wiesel, as a teenager.

Noted printmaker and portraitist Victor Karl Hammer (b. 1882, Austria) served as artist- in-residence at Transylvania University from 1948-53. His presence in the Lexington community resulted in a vibr ant small press industry and created a fertile ground for a new generation of printmakers in the Bluegrass. “Victor’s Legacy” exhibits the work of Lexington’s printers, those who were directly descended from Hammer to nascent printmakers who have benefitted from Lexington’s rich printmaking history. The Thirteen Jan. 16 – Feb. 15, 2013 “The Thirteen” revolves around the lives of 13 black women who were violently murdered in Kentucky during the19th and 20th centuries.

Divine Hybrids: Syncretic Visions of Sexuality and the Sacred Feb. 25 – March 22 “Divine Hybrids” features contemporary mixed-media art in which figuration emerges in an also mixed imagery, taking after syncretic religions and mythologies born from historically decisive multicultural encounters. From emblematic figures of mestizaje, to deities that embody combinations of Haitian voodoo with Hindu, Mayan, Catholic and other traditions, the three-dimensional art of Claudia Dominguez, Gabriela Jiménez, Ebony Patterson, and Lexington artists Diane Kahlo and Bob Morgan, contemplates life within a sexualized realm of the sacred.

TABLE

FOR

TWO

Arirang Garden BY BIFF SHANKS | TABLE FOR TWO

A

rirang Garden is one of only a small handful of Korean dining options in Lexington. T ucked just off of Richmond and Mount Tabor Road, Arirang Garden has a surprisingly large dining room, which my guest and I had the run of on a quiet T uesday evening. What most people unfamiliar with the restaurant will find perplexing on their first visit are the shiny steel grills embedded in the center of the tables. Arirang Garden is an authentic Korean barbecue restaurant, and depending on what your party orders from the menu, you may find yourself playing grill master for the evening. The menu includes about a dozen “gui” dishes – a generic Korean ter m for grilled food – with beef, chicken, pork, seafood and combination options, that diners can prepare to their liking at the table (but only so long as two or more dishes from this section of the menu are ordered, my guest and I regrettably discovered after only ordering one, which they cooked for us before delivering to the table). Highlights include “bul go ki” (thinly sliced, marinated beef), “kalbee” (beef

ribs) and “dae ji gui” (marinated pork); there were also some beef tongue and pork belly lurking on the pages, and all of the BBQ options are priced between $16 – 19 (except for the combination dinners for two). And while the BBQ selections probably steal the show, the rest of the menu is chock-full of traditional Korean staples, with a wide selection of appetizers, soups, and rice and noodle dishes (which the chef prepares for your table). Many options here caught my attention, including the “hae mool tang” (a spicy seafood soup), the “chop chae” (a noodle dish with veggies and shredded meat) and the “dolsot bop” (a rice dish with veggies, beef and raw egg served in a piping hot lava rock bowl). Most of these dishes cost between $10 – 13. Before dinner we ordered some fried Korean dumplings for an appetizer, which also come steamed if you prefer. For our main course, my guest and I split an order of the “dae ji gui” from the Korean BBQ menu and the “dolsot bop” from the rice options. Though we were initially disappointed we didn’t get a chance to try our skills on the grill, in the end it worked out for the best, as the mound of spicy pork was delicious and more

than ample – we didn’t achieve entrance into the clean plate club this outing. The dish came accompanied by a slew of side dishes, including kimchee, bean sprouts, fried tofu and a radish salad. W e Arirang Garden were both familiar with the 109 Mount Tabor Rd. rice dish we ordered and (859) 269-8273 were interested in tasting www.ariranggarden.com Arirang Garden’s version of Lunch: 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. “dolsot bop.” It was tasty and Tues. – Fri. heaping as well. Both of Dinner: 5 - 9:30 p.m. these entrees could easily Tues. – Fri. have been split between two 11 a.m. - 9:30 p.m. people. Sat. – Sun. Arirang Garden also has a number of domestic and Asian beers, such as Asahi, Sapporo and OB (Oriental Brewery in South Korea), as well as bottles of warm and cold sakis, soju, and fruit wines. Our bill, prior to tipping, came to $62.91 and included an appetizer , two entrees, and a few adult beverages.

HOMEMAKING

On the Right Snack These recipes will really make young students look forward to the end of the school day BY MEGAN SMITH | HOMEMAKING COLUMNIST

D

oritos, grilled cheese, Little Debbie snacks, bologna on saltines, Fruity Pebbles, Pizza Rolls and SpaghettiO’s. Bring back any mid-September, 3 p.m., junior high school memories? Ah yes, it’s coming back, right? I’m talking about the highly anticipated after school snack. When I asked Facebook friends their favorite childhood after school snack, I was inundated with over two dozen enthusiastic, reminiscent responses. Some, I’ve mentioned below, and nearly all were unhealthy, processed, but oh-so-nostalgic treats. As a mom of three boys, two of which are now school aged, daily I don snack chef hat. This is a tall order and, if I’m honest, one that I fail at quite often. T wenty years ago, Pizza Rolls were considered a perfect after school snack option – one that I routinely devoured as a pre-teen. But as many of us have come to lear n either by choice or osmosis in recent years, these brightly packaged foods probably aren’t the best form of sustenance and nutrition, especially for growing bodies. Clearly, children should be content with a banana and glass of water after school, right? Unfortunately not. A kid’s day is long – many heading out the door by 7 a.m. or earlier and with lunchtimes ending before noon. Because no more than four hours should lapse between refueling, after school snacks that incorporate both lean protein and healthy carbs actually provide kids the proper nutrition required for growth, energy, homework and participation in activities throughout the evening.

Homemade Pizza Rolls Ingredients: • 2 sheets of puffed pastry, defrosted Or 1 refrigerated roll of pizza crust (or homemade, if you are so inclined) • 6 tbsp pizza sauce • 2 tsp Italian herbs • 4 slices of ham, diced • 2 cup grated pizza cheese

PHOTOS BY MEGAN SMITH

Method: 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking tray with foil or parchment paper and set aside. 2. Spread puff pastry sheet or pizza dough with pizza sauce, sprinkle with Italian herbs

and diced ham. Spread the pizza cheese over the top. 3. Roll tightly into a scroll and slice the scroll evenly into 12 pieces. 4. Place on tray and bake for 10-15 minutes until bubbly and cooked through.

Apple Nachos

• 1/4 cup flaked unsweetened coconut • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

I love this food concoction. It requires no baking, and it is visually both fun and colorful. It’s nutritious and definitely a winner with kids. (Adapted from www.manifestvegan.com, pictured on previous page.) Ingredients: • 3 crispy and slightly tart apples • 1 tsp lemon juice • 3 tbsp peanut butter • 1/4 cup sliced almonds • 1/4 cup pecans

Brownie Bites These couldn’t be simpler and take the place of a pre-packaged sweet snack. Make a couple of batches, mixing flavors to your tastes and keep them stored in the freezer. An hour before school ends, take them out of the freezer and let them defrost on a plate. Serve a couple of these brownies with veggie sticks and hummus for a well-rounded after school snack. Ingredients: • 1 c. butter • 8 oz. semisweet chocolate • 1 2/3 c. sugar • 4 large eggs • 2 tsp. vanilla • 3/4 tsp. baking powder • 1 tsp. salt • 1 3/4 c. flour • 2/3 c. chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli)

Method: 1. Slice the apples thin enough for easy eating. Rub each apple with just a bit of lemon juice to keep them from browning. Place on a large plate, piling the apple slices like chips. 2. Melt the peanut butter in the microwave for 20 seconds or until runny. Drizzle over the apples. Top the apples and peanut butter with coconut, sliced almonds, a few pecans and, of course, chocolate chips.

Method: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. 2. In a heavy large saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring as it gets smooth. Remove from heat and cool. 3. Stir in sugar, vanilla and eggs and mix well. 4. Add in flour, salt and baking powder and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. 5. Pour batter evenly into the muffin pan. Top with an assortment of flavors (see below) and bake for 18-20 minutes or until just a few brownie crumbs stick to a toothpick. Cool, remove from pan and enjoy. Mix-in ideas: • Strawberry slices • Banana • Peanut Butter • Walnuts • Blueberries • Cooked and crumbled bacon

PORTRAIT OF A DANCER:

LAKSHMI SRIRAMAN

A

BY SARAYA BREWER | SOUTHSIDER MAGAZINE

t its most basic, dance is a relationship between movement, space and time. But for professional dancer Lakshmi Sriraman, founder of Lexington’s Shree School of Dance and one of the most recent additions to the Kentucky Arts Council’s Performing Arts Directory, dance is much more than that. “You feel a music and you let it just seep into you, every cell of you, into your soul, and it just bursts out as movement,” said Sriraman, one of a handful of dancers in Kentucky with a professional emphasis on the traditional Indian dance for m known as Bharatanatyam. She explained that much of her work over the past four or five years has centered on education and increasing the awareness about that particular form of dance. “When you say ‘India’ and ‘dance,’ the first thing that comes to everybody’s mind is Bollywood dance,” said Sriraman, who moved to Lexington in 2005. “I love Bollywood dance – it’s great entertainment. But (the experience that) classical dance provides is very different. It’s a very involved sense of movement, and it’s also spiritual by it’s very nature.” Bharatanatyam dance relies heavily on the Natya Shastra, a highly detailed document dating back to 200 B.C. which Sriraman refers to as “the bible for all performing arts in India.” The treatise outlines precise details of the art for m, ranging from stage set-up to hand, neck and eye movement. “(The Natya Shastra) provides a vocabulary, and we use a vocabulary based on what it is that we want to express,” she said. She added that while she works to preserve the “purity and tradition of the moves themselves,” the ultimate expression of the traditional dance form has changed over the years as it has evolved from a ritualistic temple art to a form of entertainment geared toward a more general audience. “It’s not that we are dancing the same dance that we did 2,000 years ago, but we are using the same codified gestures and moves. ... The for mat of the program has changed, because you’re wanting to please the sensibilities of the audience.” To that end, Sririamin often incorporates moder n elements, including spoken

word poetry and more moder n music, into her per formances. While she considers her dance to be, in lar ge part, a window to traditional Indian heritage and culture, Sriraman says she is primarily concerned with creating a portal where she can engage with her audience to create a unique experience. Where theatre actors often work to create a “fourth wall” – i.e., an imagined boundary between performer and audience – Sriraman finds herself working in each performance to break that boundary down. “I consciously try to take away that wall and connect with (the audience) completely,” she said. “The Natya Shastra talks of how the purpose of per forming arts is to create a response in the audience, the viewer – when you feel it, you feed it back to me and we create together.” Sriraman moved to the United States from India in 1994 to pursue her MBA, with a master’s degree in mathematics and science already under her belt. She spent a decade in a successful career as a management consultant with an HR management firm before the birth of her son in 2004 inspired her to give up the days of long hours and travel in order to more seriously pursue her lifelong passion of Indian dance. She landed an intensive apprenticeship with Smt. Priyadarsini Govind, an award-winning Bharatanatyum dancer whom she had admired greatly in her early teens and 20s. “She was always my inspiration growing up,” Sriraman said of Govind, whom she first met while living in Atlanta in 2004. Govind had traveled there to give a workshop; the two “hit it of f as people” and set up an apprenticeship that has had Sriraman traveling to India about once a year to study with Govind. One of Sriraman’s greatest joys as a dancer lies in teaching others, and she reaches around 30 – 40 students each Sunday at the Shree School of Dance, which she founded soon after moving to Lexington. While there are many historical and technical aspects that can be passed down from one generation to the next, she admits that there are some aspects of dance – which she lightly termed “soul-thetics,” in reference to the expression of something deep inside oneself – that dancers must find in themselves. “That cannot be choreographed. And you can’t teach that either,” she said. “You can talk about the end product and where the impulse will lie, but the process between that impulse and end product is a very personal jour ney.”

ate summer and early fall gardens are wonder ful. The asters and goldenrod are in bloom, the or namental grasses start tur ning brown, and the goldfinches are perched on the coneflower seedheads. From my kitchen window I also see cardinal flower, great blue lobelia, turtlehead, iron weed, joe pye weed, silphium, blue sage, various rudbeckias, and so on. There is no shortage of fall flowers for the perennial border. And let’s not forget shrubs for fall color. Shrubs are so useful in the garden. They offer height, privacy, structure, for m, and also they provide a great backdrop for a perennial border or structure within the perennial garden. There are many that also dress up in festive autumnal colors, some with splashy berries. Let me introduce you to some of them. Here is a great plant that does well through summer drought, heat and humidity. ‘Gro-Low’ fragrant sumac ( Rh u s a ro m a tic a ‘Gro-Low) is per fect for planting en masse to stabilize a sunny slope or where a taller groundcover is desired. It grows quickly to about two foot tall by six foot wide. W ant it to be smaller? Just prune it back to three inches from the ground in the spring and by mid-summer it will have completely recovered. I like the rambling nature of this shrub and the fall color tends to be brilliant reddish-orange to scarlet.

Southsider Magazine September 2012


Winterberry holly (Ile x v e rtic illa ta ) cultivars come in many shapes and sizes. For much of the year they’re just plain filler shrubs, but in the fall, wow. The berries have real impact in the garden. ‘Red Sprite’, also known as ‘Nana’ or ‘Compacta’, has lots of very winter persistent red fruits and its smaller size (four foot tall and wide) makes it easy to use. ‘Shaver’ is very useful in landscape design due to its upright, compact form. It is slow growing to six foot tall by three foot wide. ‘W inter Red’ and ‘Winter Gold’ are larger with profuse quantities of berries. Hollies are dioecious, meaning that the female requires a nearby male in order to berry. Just get the right male, stick him somewhere behind the scenes and keep him pruned to a small size. Sorry, guys. Viburnums also are terrific shrubs. Spring blooms (some fragrant) are followed by berries and many have great fall leaf color . Consider v ib u rn u m n u d u m ‘Winterthur’, with its compact size of about six foot tall and wide and amazingly blue berries that pop against the intense maroon red fall leaves. V. n u d u m ‘Brandywine’ is known for its vivid pink and blue berries. ‘Eskimo’ vibur num is also rather compact; its leaves tur n attractive shades of yellow, orange and red in fall. ‘Mohawk’ is larger with fragrant blooms and good fall color . Aro n ia a rb u tif o lia , red chokeberry, is an underutilized shrub with great characteristics. It is most readily available as the cultivar ‘Brilliantissima’, with showy spring flowers, large red berries and lovely fall color . It grows to seven foot tall and three foot wide, will take full sun to part shade and tolerates the clay soil so many of us have. I like A. m e la n o c a rp a , or black chokeberry, too, even though the black fruits are not as showy. The landscape value of blueberries is often overlooked as well. Highbush blueberry (Va c c in iu m c o ry m b o s u m ) likes acidic soils, so give it some Hollytone or elemental sulphur in spring and fall. It will reward you with spring blooms, edible fruit (maybe just for the birds) and long-lasting fall color . Cross pollination tends to produce the best fruit crop, meaning it is best to plant a couple of cultivars if you wish to maximize fruit set. We mustn’t forget the much beloved oakleaf hydrangea. Hy d ra n g e a q u e rc if o lia cultivars range from large (like ‘Snow Queen’ and ‘Alice’) to much smaller (‘Pee Wee’ and ‘Sike’s Dwar f’) They all have those lar ge pyramidal panicles of white flowers, exfoliating bark and lobed, oak-like leaves. In the fall those leaves tur n to shades of bronze, maroon and purple. This hydrangea flowers on old wood so, if you feel the need to prune, don’t wait until too late in the season or you will cut off next year’s blooms. Itea is becoming a popular plant, too. It is very versatile – sun or shade, and tolerates a wide variety of soil conditions and is drought tolerant. Ite a v irg in ic a ‘Henry’s Garnet’ grows to about four foot tall and wide. ‘Little Henry’ is about half this size. Spring flowers for m cylindrical white racemes that cover the plant. Fall colors are variations on a reddish theme. Fo th e rg illa m a jo r and f o th e rg illa g a rd e n ii (dwarf fothergilla) are also tough plants with excellent shade tolerance, though they also do well in full sun. It has a white spring bloom and excellent, rather cherry red, fall color. Enough of this red – how about yellow? Cle th ra a ln if o lia , lin d e ra b e n z o in (spicebush), and Ha m a m e lis v irg in ia n a (common witchhazel) all turn a striking yellow in the fall. Autumn is almost upon us. The end of summer , but definitely not the end of a beautiful landscape. Fall can compete with any season for Dwarf fothergilla is beauty in the garden. another colorful
