“The exhibition’s chronology, 1000 to 1200, corresponds to a pivotal era in the history of the Spanish Middle Ages—one that saw significant shifts in the balance of power between Christian and Muslim rulers, destabilizing long-standing social relationships and introducing new tensions among religious communities. Yet the visual arts make it clear that this was not a purely divisive age. In exploring how artists and patrons of the day drew from many sources of inspiration, negotiating the visual traditions of different religions, Spain, 1000–1200: Art at the Frontiers of Faith will showcase the richness and complexity of interfaith interaction. In so doing, the exhibition draws upon the concept of the frontier—a boundary that simultaneously separates and connects—as a metaphor for Spain as a place of artistic creation.”

Michele the Ubiquitous lives in the Canton of Hawkes Reache in the Barony of An Dubhaigheainn with her lord Robert d’Whitmont, and Smoky the murder bunny (the Vicereine’s lepus defensorem). She has served as Canton A&S Minister & Seneschal. Before moving to Hawkes Reache, Michele lived in Unclaimed Crown Lands (Jersey City) and Whyte Whey. She is known for her enthusiasm for the textile arts and her ability to convince people to join in her wild and woolly IDEAS! Notably entering the Fleece to Shawl Competition at the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival with a team composed of other textile artists from East Kingdom in GARB and hosting a Pennsic U Pity workshop, where she convinced a group of friends to help her conduct a study of how cochineal reacts to various mordants and after baths for just a couple of examples.
Michele has leveraged her experience teaching origami in the mundane world into the SCA, by teaching origami at events and gatherings within the SCA. These include, but are not limited to, A&S nights in Brokenbridge & Hawkes Reache, Hrim Schola, Pennsic, and various demos.
The Saturday Night Solar occurs every other Saturday night at 8:00 PM ET. The Canton of Whyt Whey in the Crown Province of Østgarðr hosts teachers and topics from all over the Known World so that even when we are apart, we can learn together.
