    Avner Eisenberg in Exceptions to Gravity is a reminder of the theatrical power that can reside in a single charismatic performer who touches the heart. A master of the art of physical comedy, Avner weaves a spell of poetic simplicity in a show of hilarious predicaments. Avner has appeared on and off Broadway with his hit show Exceptions to Gravity. He played the endearing Holy Man, The Jewel, in the Michael Douglas film, The Jewel of the Nile, and performed as a ventriloquist on Broadway in Ghetto. His dummy was nominated for a Tony Award. Avner?s show defies the barriers of language and culture and has toured extensively in the US and abroad. I laughed for two solid hours. The show only lasted an hour and a half.

    One of the finest Federal style residences in its region, the Dr. Moses Mason House was begun in 1813 on a spacious lot facing onto the common at Bethel Hill village. According to Dr. Nathaniel Tuckerman True, Bethel?s eminent nineteenth century historian, the Mason house was the first on the common to be painted white, the first on a high foundation of granite slabs, and the first to make use of exterior shutters. The house and grounds were renovated and restored in 1972-73 by the Bingham Trust, which presented the property to the Bethel Historical Society in 1974 in memory of William Bingham 2nd, the town?s great twentieth century philanthropist. Nine rooms in the Mason House have been arranged to depict the residence as it appeared from 1813 to 1869 during the occupancy of Dr. Mason (1789-1866) and his wife, Agnes M. Straw (1793-1869).

    Join us for a special preview of this summer's major exhibit at Museums of the Bethel Historical Society: ''ART AS ANTIDOTE: White Mountain Landscapes'' Visual art encourages us to reflect, to consider, to wonder, to imagine, to ponder, and to remember. In this exhibition of more than 50 White Mountain landscapes?the most extensive public display of its kind in Maine in 2019?visitors are invited to break from the distractions of modern technology, to challenge the pessimism of a restless world, to breathe deep, and to experience fully the ?Alps of New England? as portrayed by 19th and 20th century artists, as well as those dedicated to traditional representation today. In times of social uncertainty and disorder, visual art can re-ignite one?s inner optimism, excite one?s imagination, and stimulate one?s sense of creativity. Visual art, then, is especially worthy of our attention at this moment. More than ever, it is an antidote for our times. Refreshments will be served. ... read more
