What you get:
A Community Gathering & Fundraising Event to benefit the National Association of the Deaf! The Dessert Reception will take place at the Deaf Smith Center, Texas School for the Deaf.
Understanding the structure of ASL is a tool every interpreter, teacher and student must have in their bag of tricks. Many interpreters and teachers use sign language, but they don’t know where to find nouns, verbs, adjectives, or adverbs in ASL. Why can the sign DEAF go either way? How does ASL Syntax work? What’s the difference between numbers and numerical incorporation? In this workshop we will be studying phonology, morphology, syntax, pragmatics and semantics in ASL. This workshop will help everyone fully understand what’s “inside” ASL.
Come join us and begin to understand why you sign the way you do.

VSA Texas Presents an Installation at Access Gallery A Community of Non-Normative Beings
January 17 – February 25, 2011
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 22, 2011 6:00-8:00 pm
Janet Morrow is an MFA candidate from the University of Texas at Arlington. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally, most recently at the Smithsonian International Gallery with VSA. After losing her ability to hear, Janet received bilateral cochlear implants (CI) and has regained some hearing with her implants. Morrow’s newest installation is based on how her implants translate sounds she hasn’t heard before and themes of “otherness” and disability. A Community of Non-Normative Beings uses transparent materials to form abstracted structures, which are inflated to create sculptural bodies that float and shimmer in the gallery. Accompanied by industrial interiors and a “CI Sonatina”, Morrow’s art transcends human frailty, and identifies the joy that may be found in even painful situations.
Dates for Fr. Tom Coughlin to lead mass for the Deaf:
In the Mother Chapel at 3 pm.
Optional: After church there will be social gathering in the Annex. Bring a dish to share.
June 19th: Picnic afterwards
Classes (Communion and Confirmation):
First, second, & forth Sundays each month at 10 am in the Annex next to St. Ignatius Church. 2305 Euclid Ave, Austin TX 78704
