Katie’s Blog: Rossman School visit September 2014

This is a guest blog by Katie Gast

Rossman School is an independent school in St. Louis County, Missouri.Unlike Ted, who blogs about the past. I am blogging about the future.

I am getting ready to start an EXCITING NEW ADVENTURE!

I am getting ready for my first school visit. I will visit a kindergarten and first grade class to read my new iBook: Police Hens.

Police Hens iBook

Police Hens iBook

Police Hens is the story of three rather silly hens who get a job on the police force. They investigate a robbery on the farm. They have unique and funny problems because they are, after all, chickens.

I am using the book as a fun way to start a conversation about Community Helpers.  And the classes I am visiting have just begun to discuss community helpers. So there you go.

They said that I can use their smart board. I have never used a smart board and had to google what it is. It looks good. I hope I can connect my iPad to it. I googled that too, but then decided to ask the school if they had the connectors. I am waiting to hear back from the technology person.

So hopefully, I will read my story with my pictures up on the smart board. And then what???  I have been looking for good community helper activities. I have taken a few pages from the book and made them into pages to be colored. Here is one of them:

Color_Page_1

I have also  made a maze, but I’m not sure what type mazes this age likes. Still more work to be done on google.  Here is what I have so far:

Have you done a Community Helper activity at a school? 

What works best with Kindergarten and First Graders? 

I am a bit nervous. Is there an emoticon for that?

This is what I found

This year has been a lot of travel for me. First I drove the new car back from Greg’s in Connecticut.  In August anther road trip with Teddy and Marion along the old route 66 from St louis to UCLA and Santa Monica. This include a stop off in Gallup and at the Grand Canyon. Another long train ride This time Marion and I take a three day ride from LA back to Saint Louis. We had a blast.

Considering a visit to Canada and Niagara falls  for Ted’s graduation from Carnegie Mellon and the fact that the train from LA stopped in del Rio, TX just six miles from the Mexican borer I have crossed the United States from east to west and north to south in a period of four months.

The thing about the airports in China is that they don’t seem to be very busy. Only government Ministers can afford to fly. There is no commercial aviation company. CAAC is under the control of the Chinese air force. They practice steep approach landing. We landed here on our second trip to Canton on the way back to Hong Kong.

The museum was opened in 1897. The museum went through a series of name changes, in 1900 changing its name to the Imperial Household Museum of Kyoto, and once more in 1924 to the Imperial Gift Museum of Kyoto.

Carter was President and making a mess of things. He didn’t figure it out until his buddy Brezhnev double crossed him by invading Afghanistan. The Brezhnev doctrine stated that it was the duty of all socialist nations to aid brother socialist nations facing reforms or threats to  communist rule. Strobe Talbot said in Time magazine, it was a war the Afghans could never win. Jack Matlock, whom Katie and I would meet our senior year at Vanderbilt at the impact symposium had a different idea. He would also become ambassador to the Soviet Union. We also met a funny man from Texas who said he had run the CIA and been US ambassador to China–George HW Bush.

Carter ended up pulling us out of the 1980 Moscow Olympics. I guess the Pashtu’s aren’t the Hungarians and Afghanistan isn’t a flat country you can just run over with tanks in a few hours. Obama I hope you are listening. The Germans were alienated and thinking of deploying their own nuclear missiles and neutron bomb. Daily propaganda broadcasts came from over the Iron curtain from Czechoslovakia and Radio Luxembourg (Pirate Radio). America did its part with Radio free Europe.

If you’ve been reading my BLOG you know I lived in Germany.

My first time in Germany was in 1975. I took the train from Paris through Belgium and Aachen to Cologne. We took a Rhine cruise from Cologne to Mainz and then went to Heidelberg and Lucerne in Switzerland by bus. We ran into the health teacher and her husband from my high school. We had not arranged it. They were celebrating their wedding anniversary. I have always loved that stretch of the Rhine. I even took my parents and my wife there on separate trips. One of my first paintings was of the Rhine a huge mural which now hangs in my basement. When I was in high school the German club painted another mural on the wall in my classroom.

1977 August Leave for Regensburg. Eight of us left Chicago for Reykjavik and Luxembourg via Icelandic Airlines and then on to Regensburg by train after a few days of sightseeing in Luxembourg. The allied military cemetery is very impressive as is the rock fortress, the rock of the bock.

I learned a very import word in German umsteigen it means change trains that is get off of the train you are on walk to another platform with your luggage and change to a different train.

Lived in Regensburg Germany in Bavaria for a year studying Chemie, Germanistik and Philologie (linguistics) and Arabic because Chinese was offered at the wrong time. I believe in taking advantage of every opportunity as it presents itself. I continue this philosophy to this day. My specialty is starting new things. I’m the one to ask what to do when you don’t know what to do.

During the American occupation of Germany after the second world war there was a feeling that elitist tendencies among universities in Germany had contributed to the rise of Hitler. To counter this the Americans demanded a radical increase in the number of universities; thus in a country that had about a dozen universities before the war there were now to be 20 or so in Bavaria alone.

Thus although Regensburg is one of the five oldest cities in all of Germany its University was started in 1965 with the first lectures held in 1967. Plans for a University at Regensburg had been discussed as early as the 17th century and before. Thus the University of Regensburg now 40 years old I was a student there in 1977 when it was just 10 years old and everything was brand new. There was no MacDonald’s in Regensburg at the time and the A3 Autobahn had not been built and was just in the planning stages.

Regensburg has a town charter dating from 179 ad from Marcus Aurelius. It was originally a Roman garrison on the Danube, Castra Regina in the Roman colony of Rhaetia with its capital in Augsburg. Regensburg did not suffer much bombing damage during the war and is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Germany. Regensburg became a bishopric in the early 8th century.Regensburg was a major city in Germany in Europe by the 10th century. By the 1100’s with the only bridge over the Danube it was making a fortune on salt trade with Kyiv and Venice, until the Mongol invasion put an end to that. The richest woman in Europe Gloria von Thurn und Taxis lives in a castle in Regensburg. The current pope Benedict XVI is from Regensburg. His brother still lives there and was the director of the cathedral choir for many years.

Napoleonic Wars Napoleon is wounded here for the first and only time. He took a bullet in the knee.

Napoléon_blessé_à_Ratisbonne

He levels half of Regensburg in revenge. That’s the part east of Maximillianstr. dating from 1807 that’s the “new” part of the city. Robert Browning memorialized it in  famous poem.

Bonn is the capital of divided Germany. It is a city on the Rhine. It has a University and is the home of Ludwig von Beethoven. It is not far from Cologne home of the great gothic cathedral and Conrad Adenauer the father of modern Germany.

November Berlin This month our group made a trip to the divided city of Berlin. About 30 of us. Sharon had to stay behind because her father is in the military. Fears of blackmail, kidnapping and the like. Because our director is German we have to cross into East Berlin at Friederichstr. Or Checkpoint alpha. Checkpoint Charlie is for Americans only. I’ll cross back into West Berlin there later that night.

Cafe Moskau, Berlin Ost

Berlin is dived into four zones of occupation since the end of WWII, British, American French and Russian, Since 1949 the French British and American zones have been untied into the free city of West Berlin. The German government has subsidized our trip lest people abandon the citizens of W. Berlin which lies well into the territory of East Germany.

When my parents visit me in the Spring we visit West Berlin and then Drive to Potsdam and Dresden. It takes hours to cross the border into the DDR in our car. We also visited Prague and Vienna on that trip. I was ready this time. Munich, Salzburg (were I spent my 21st birthday), the Black Forest, Stuttgart–the ancestral home of my great-grandmother, Trier and the Rhine and Regensburg of course.

Ted Gast, an autodidact, is a modern scientist, artist and inventor , who began working with papermaking in 1998. What began as a method of repurposing used cotton clothing to illustrate the tensions between the old industrial and information age to a new sustainable industry based on an ideal of cradle to cradle methods of production. In his Art, he promotes this theme, by showing the progression from textiles to paper, and including clothing tags, unpulped fibers, as well as half formed paper sheets.   Gast first began working with paper in high school when he made his own chromatography plates from cellulose by hand for a science project. He currently focuses on raising awareness of the lost majesty of the industrial Midwest laid to waste.  He expresses himself with bold colors and a variety of repurposed materials. First exposed to the works of William Morris, Ernest Trova and Dard Hunter, Ted’s work reminds one of the style of the abstract expressionist painters. His work is propelled by a childlike play of shape and color, and often displaying underlying mathematical formulae or element of chemistry.

Ted Gast is an American artist whom some describe as a neo-fauve, but he describes his goals as repurposed industrial waste and sustainability. Gast was born in St. Louis, MO. Always interested in new uses for old materials Gast and a partner recently formed a company to produce high quality post consumer cotton paper from repurposed textiles and rags.

He has been strongly influenced by his German heritage – both sides of his family emigrated from Germany to St Louis, An appreciation for art runs in the family – his great-great grandfather was an immigrant to St. Louis from Trier, Germany and was an ecclesiastical sculptor.

At the age of twenty he spent a year of study in Bavaria at Regensburg studying chemistry, the German language and linguistics. Mr. Gast also studied ancient art and art history. Gast has also visited some the finest Art museums in China, Japan and Thailand; as well as Paris, Vienna, behind the Iron Curtain to Belgrade, Berlin and Budapest. Regensburg has also produced the latest pope, Benedict XVI.  The influence of Bavaria, riparian Regensburg and the Danube are still apparent in Gast’s work, and dovetail with his origins along the Mississippi river. Ted lives with his wife of 27 years in Richmond Heights, MO and has two children.  Ted maitains his studio in a 99 year old former dairy building in the historic Soulard district of St. Louis.

Ted Gast is an American artist whom some describe as neo-fauve, but he prefers to describe his goals as repurposed industrial waste and sustainability. A prime example is Danube; a tonal study painted using only indigo and white. Rhein a 48″ x 144″ mural depicting the River Rhine from its source in the Alps through Germany to its delta in Holland in the North Sea is another example of Gast’s work.

Always interested in new uses for old materials, as a part time inventor and with the aid of a partner, Gast has recently formed a company to produce high quality post consumer cotton paper from repurposed textiles and rags. Ted cites his five most influential artists as Kandinsky, Cezanne, Matisse, Chagal and Swiss painter Paul Klee. By coincidence Regensburg in Bavaria has also produced the latest pope, Benedict XVI.

Ted comes from the heartland of the country, in the heart of industries laid to waste by the changing global economy. Ted has taken it all to heart and tried to find a way to repurpose the lost industrial majesty. He expresses himself with bold colors and a variety of repurposed materials. First exposed to the works of Kandinsky and the Blaue Reiter in Munich and Venice, Ted paints in the style of the abstract expressionists. His work is propelled by a childlike play of shape and color, and often displays an underlying mathematical formula or element of chemistry.

Gast has spent a lifetime admiring art and the last ten years participating in the field. He has been strongly influenced by his German heritage – both sides of his family emigrated from Germany to St Louis, and he is only the 3rd generation to be born in this country. An appreciation for art runs in the family – his great-great grandfather was an immigrant to St. Louis from Trier, Germany and was an ecclesiastical sculptor.

Gast himself was born in St. Louis, MO in 1957. At the age of twenty he spent a year of study in Bavaria at Regensburg studying chemistry, the German language and linguistics. Travel during that year sparked Mr. Gast’s life long interest in the arts. Gast visited some the finest Art museums in Munich and Europe. He traveled extensively, visiting areas as diverse as Spain, Morocco, Istanbul, and Scandinavia. As well as to Paris, Vienna, and behind the Iron Curtain to Belgrade and Rila Monastery, Berlin and Budapest. The influence of Bavaria, riparian Regensburg and the Danube are still apparent in Gast’s work, and dovetail with his own origins along the Mississippi river in St. Louis.

The fall of communism intensified the feeling of the end of ideologies. No matter what artists attempt to do art has ceased to be anti-establishment or revolutionary. Everything seems to have been done. Content merely with color and light Fauvism has again come into fashion.

The Fauves did not presume that Art could change society. They did not strive to destroy painting but instead to further it. From the greatest to the least they tried to present the joy of painting.

Ted lives in Richmond Heights with his wife of 23 years, two teenage children –a boy (17) and girl (15), one dog and two cats.

Who are those Finno-Ugrians?

Epic Kandinsky – Vasily Kandinsky, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, California

In her excellent catalogue essay, Dabrowski makes us see that all of these biographical strands are somehow manifest in the “Compositions.” The early ethnological studies in Russia, which culminated in a paper published in 1889 on the pagan religions of the Zyrians, a Finno-Ugric tribe in northeastern Siberia, are distantly reflected in what Dabrowski sees as the vibrant color and veiled, shamanistic imagery of the “Compositions.” Kandinsky’s early love of Wagner, and his epiphanic experience of hearing Lohengrin in Moscow in 1896, comes back in the recurring musical metaphor of the paintings; Dabrowski compares these paintings to works by Scriabin and Schoenberg, both acquaintances of the artist.
