acous.jpgThe Amazing Acoustaphotophonogrammitron :: Through March 21, 2010 :: @ Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts’ Gallery 51 : 51 Main St. North Adams MA

A synesthetic exhibition lavishly brimming with resonant frequencies of sound and light! The Amazing Acoustaphotophonogrammitron is a group show featuring work by makers who find themselves somewhere between visual artist and musician.

Curated by MCLA Gallery 51 Gallery Manager, Ven Voisey, The Amazing Acoustaphotophonagrammitron features the work of local and national artists: Joshua Churchill (CA), Paul de Jong (NY), Lesley Flanigan (NY), Christy Georg (MA), Mark Mulherrin (MA), Ed Osborn (RI), Tristan Perich (NY), Ven Voisey (MA) and Nick Zammuto (VT).

“This show is about overlap and influence of the different senses.” says Voisey, “ Included are artists whose processes seamlessly move through mediums and whose works are simultaneously audio and visual instruments.”

On Thursday February 25, at 7:30 pm, an evening of in-gallery performances by several of the exhibition participants, including Paul de Jong, Lesley Flanigan, Tristan Perich, and Ven Voisey (aka Cabinets). For more info and to buy tickets, please visit

The Amazing Acoustaphotophonogrammitron is on exhibit through March 21, 2010.

Please join us for the opening reception of Oddly Alive at the Arts
Center for the Capital Region in Troy, NY, Friday, January 29, 2010,
from 5 to 9pm. The exhibition will run through March 19.

Oddly Alive is curated by Lauren Wolk and features work by:
Rachel Abrams
Graham Caldwell
Marianne Fourie
Sabrina Gschwandtner
Mayumi Ishino
Sky Kim
Ven Voisey

Uniting the artists of Oddly Alive is their rejection of the inertness
of materials. Instead, each explores his or her medium’s capacity to
conjure life. Three of the artists put their material into a state of
action: Sabrina Gschwandtner explores the behavior of string in
response to the light and fan of a slide projector; Ven Voisey’s
suspended apparatus has a cacophonous response to approaching viewers;
Mayumi Ishino performance at the opening yields portraits on mirrors,
which she then smashed and left on display. The works of the other
four artists teem with the sheer quality of life: Graham Caldwell’s
glass sculptures reference a fierce mouth, a complex system of veins,
or the serenity of Spanish moss; Marianne Fourie’s vibratory
photomontages describe the passing of time, rather than a preserving a
single moment; Rachel Abrams’s idiosyncratic sculptures result from
her studies of ecosystems, sea life and myriad biological forms;
finally, Sky Kim’s paintings and drawings feature a seriality of
circles and curves, alluding to the texture of skin, muscle tissue,
cells, and the dramatic energy of seeds about to sprout.
