Remembering East Village resident Mary Bellis



Via the EVG inbox...

Longtime East Village resident Mary Bellis aka CalmX was a filmmaker, artist and writer.

She received an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and funding from the National Film Board of Canada to create her experimental works. Her 1984 independent film "Agent of Paradise" shot in the New York underground art scene starred numerous downtown performance artists, including John Kelly, The Unknown Comic, Philly McAninch as well as James Oseland star of Bravo TV’s "Top Chef Masters." "Agent of Paradise" premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival and screened in art house theaters worldwide.

Mary worked as an independent video game developer, animator and journalist while continuing to make and exhibit her computer-generated art. She was the originator and author of the Inventors site for the web portal about.com.

Mary loved tending her garden at 6th Street and Avenue B and dancing at the Pyramid Club. Mary was a beautiful person and dear friend and will be greatly missed by all of those she touched.

Please join us in a celebration of life for our friend at the 6th Street and Ave B Community Garden on Sunday from 4-8 p.m.

Bellis died on March 28 following a short illness.

This weekend at the 6th Street and Ave. B Garden



Via the EV Grieve inbox ... information about the the 6th Street and Ave. B Garden's annual plant and bake sale the weekend ... the funds raised go to to the Garden's Events Committee, which brings dance, theatre, music and other happenings to the East Village community.

As one Garden member told us, "This year, fundraising is especially important for us, as we are still dealing with aftermath of the Hurricane Sandy damage to our stage roof (under which most events are held). So anyone who comes by will also be able to donate funds directly to that repair effort, if they wish."

Also of note.. Garden member Briar Winters, the pastry chef of the recently shuttered Masak on East 13th Street, will be baking her jasmine tea shortbread for the bake sale...

This afternoon in the 6th and B Garden


Per the 6th and B Garden website:

The Vagabond Velonators
Long time Local Musician, John Campo, has concentrated on writing music, lyrics, and arrangements that are centered around methods long lost in music, that can live again in his post Bop R&B Triplet Feel. Currently playing with Tom Ryan, rhythm guitarist, they will play arrangements, and sound that falls somewhere in between New Orleans and Harlem traditions, and more.
