Internal Landscapes: Evolution

Our 2015 Gala Artists:

Internal Landscapes: Evolution artists: John Ollom (Movement Artist), Lindsay Metcalf (Installation Work) & José Javier Peña Aguayo (Composer) presenting samples of their work and some sneak peaks at this exciting immersive experience which takes you on a journey through our internal psychic evolution. Set in five rooms of the Spool Mfg. contemporary art space, this promises to be an exciting new adventure for us all.

Jim Sable presents a sneak peek of Under My Skin, a photo/audio commentary of how our current digital society is forcing us to project our own beliefs and history into pictures and how sound and voice affects those perceptions. Contains nudity.

Jill Krutick (Oil Paintings on Canvas) paints out of need to capture movement through a texturized canvas. A featured artist at the Ollom Art Festival in Northampton, MA, Jill will show select works from her portfolio.

Chriztine Foltz (Textile Art) presents fabric art from Prisoner of My Projection and tapestries that are jacquard woven in monochromatic black and white, then used as a substrate for painting images which encourage the eye to explore.

Emma McCagg (Painting/Film) shows Men In Love (With Each Other), a painting from a performance piece with John Ollom, and a clip from the documentary work in progress There’s Something About John.

Ken Sheller (Work on Paper) presents his fascinating work with the line and form of the body and the liminal space into which we project.

Shari Berman (Film) after many years of collaboration with Ollom Art presents a glimpse of her newest work, “Sugar!” starring Alice Ripley.

Yael Acher “KAT” Modiano (Music), an international award-winning flutist and composer will perform live electro-acoustic flute.

Emily Winkler-Morey (Movement Artist) will present a live performance of her newest work in progress: I see you We all get looked at all day long, but it is a is rare and freeing feeling to be seen.
