FARMINGTON — The University of Maine at Farmington has planned the following events at the Emery Community Arts Center. All events are free and open to the public.

* The Café Project Concert Series is planned for 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15, 22 and 29, in the Performance Space.

The series are student-run, weekly performances by local musicians from campus and the community.

* An opening reception for In the Realm of Folklore will begin at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16. The exhibit will run through Friday, Nov. 16, in the Flex-Space Gallery.

The six women in the exhibition acknowledge the power of folklore on the collective conscience in an array of works that span from projects in social practice to crafted art objects. The artists have approached this exhibition from the perspective of six American women united in their self-identification as American. Hours are 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Friday and noon-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

* Worlds Apart: Fulbright Professors Share Their Experience in Bhutan and Northern Ireland is set for 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, in the Performance Space.

UMF creative writing faculty members and Fulbright Scholars Gretchen Legler and Jeffrey Thomson present stories, images and writings from their experiences in Bhutan and Northern Ireland.

* Liz Phillips — The Resonance of Weather will take place at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31, in the Performance Space

The sounds that Phillips produces in her work originate from a myriad of sources: sensors, grounding fields, radiating fields, transducers, interfaces, sub-audio frequencies and homemade loudspeakers such as a bowl or a vase. In her talk, “The Resonance of Weather,” Phillips will encourage the audience to consider the three-dimensional form of sound–something as flexible and elastic in time-space as a tree in the wind.

Doors open 30 minutes before all performances.
