The Buddy System - take two

  #
 
 If you happened to  miss the first Buddy System show in May, you now have the opportunity to catch it again!  This time (Scene) Metrospace will be hosting the group of 14 local and international artists.  Located at 303 Abbott Rd, East Lansing, the opening is TONIGHT (Friday Sept. 9) from 6-9pm.

Artists featured in the exhibit include: Peter Richards, Tim Lane, Joe Scott, Andrea Eckert, Mike Clark, Aaron Curtner, John Lindenmayer, Jenny Mc, Travis Pickard, Kellie Pickard, George Rahme, Ben Gaydos, Matt Cygnet, Ana Kamiar.



 From the State News: (SCENE) Metrospace, 303 Abbott Road, will host a reception at 6 p.m. on Friday for the opening of "The Buddy System." Many of the local artists' plan on attending. Jon Howard of the musical group Rattling Wall Collective will be on turntables. Light refreshments will be served.

Kruch said this exhibit is very important for East Lansing because of the impact these artists have made on the area and the variety of their artwork.

"People that normally go to galleries will probably walk in a say, 'What a mess,' but that's what we like about it."

"02890" Bankley Gallery Show

  #
02890

An exhibition of nine emerging graduate artists based in Belfast. ‘02890’ is a mixed bag.

The artist’s works are not bound to one another; rather they point in differing directions, addressing contemporary subjectivity.

They demonstrate how societies structures and codes are embodied in the urban environment and the vulnerability of the individual played out through a complexity of narratives, sounds and images.


10th September to the 30th September 2005

Private View Friday 9th September 7-9 pm
Open Saturday 10th 12 till 4pm

Other times by appointment on:
07773 369 465 (24hrs in advance)

Bankley Studios Gallery
Bankley House, Bankley Street, Levenshulme, Manchester, England

Arirang...Song of Hope

  #

  

http://www.lansingcitypulse.com/050706/stories/bird.asp

The
Hope Borbas Okemos Library will host the korean brush painting of Hyung-Kook Lee during the month of July.  The opening reception will be Sunday, July 10 from 1-4pm. 

"Ever since the Industrial Revolution, human beings have lived in material abundance.
Matters...as they became abundant, they've caused not a few ill effects.
The unlimited competitions, the loneliness in the crowd, the loss of humanity, the innumerable accidents and crimes, and the dangerous trend to take life lightly...


The modern people-- those who were born as natural beings, and keep in the giant artificial concrete structures their dreams of grey-- where shall the find their true haven?

Religions, the strong will of human beings, searching for the tranquil state of mind-- can any of these be a substitute for it?

I'm strangely drawn to Ryan Steadman's style:

sharing a square

"Ryan Steadman uses the stark backdrops of sharp-edged urban buildings to isolate the small-scale human dramas of the quotidian. Steadman's background apartment towers are flat and modernist, looming large behind the tiny expressionist figures that people his scenes." [via Art MoCo]

Matt Cygnet and Jeni Mc at Spiderhouse

"Agreed; It's Obsessive and Sloppy" Featuring the work of Matt Cygnet and Jeni Mc

Spiderhouse Gallery premieres the work of artist Jeni Mc this month and sculptor Matt Cygnet, whose plaster casts have previously been displayed in the Lansing Art Gallery.
The show features 3-D sculpture and 2-D paintings composed of spray paint, cement, Goo Gone, plaster, Windex and oddly enough, whiskey.

• Opening reception 7 to 9 p.m., Friday, April 1.
• 10 to 6 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, 9 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Runs through May 1.

• Call 346-7620

Spider has been a tireless advocate of young artists in Lansing.  Both Matt and Jeni produce amazing work!  Obsessive?  Yes, in all the right ways.  Sloppy?  Maybe in a self-effacing way; but ultimately compelling, provocative and full of visual delicacies.  Please flock to this show in droves -- Jeni and Matt do not disappoint.

FILMS BY MARGARET TAIT

 Margaret Tait film still: Image of red flowers
SUBJECTS AND SEQUENCES: FILMS BY MARGARET TAIT
 --
 Sunday 20 & Sunday 27 March 2005 (2 parts) | Leeds Central Library | 
 6.30%u20148pm

 £4.50/3.50 per screening; £8/6 both parts
 Lux project curated by Peter Todd | Presented by Lumen
 --

The photographs (all 24 of them in every second) and the recorded sounds are the equivalent of notes, or works (or letter sounds might be nearer it) or blobs of paint, and its a matter of composing them so that the effect is in a sense musical%u2014or poetic, if thats a better word for it.

Margaret Tait was one of Britain's most unique individual artist filmmakers. Over the course of forty-six years she produced over thirty films and published five books of poetry and short stories, while living between Orkney and Edinburgh.

Get A Haircut, See Some Art

  #
andrea-eckert-enhanced.jpg   relic (loading dock)                 
Beginning on their one-year anniversary as a business, The Paradise Beauty Salon & Art Gallery (2008 E Michigan Ave., Lansing, MI 48912, phone 517-367-2206) will feature paintings and prints by Andrea Eckert and Peter Richards.  The salon's bright pink walls should provide an arresting backdrop for Andrea's naturalistic, gestural abstractions and Peter's tectonic surfaces and architectural studies.

The Anniversary Party is March 20, starting at 3 o'clock.  Not sure if it is open to the public, but stop by anyway -- I'm sure Carmen Paradise (singer/songwriter, bassist for Calliope, 1/2 of the alluring Psyche's Sister and 1/4 of the upbeat pop combo The Good Mornings) won't turn you away!  I'm told that the ceiling of the salon will be flooded with balloons.

Carmen's beauty salon (right nextdoor to Magdalena's Teahouse) opened up one year ago and provides a full range of haircutting and beauty services.  I usually get a scalp massage with my haircut!  Carmen has opened up her walls to local artists, and Andrea and I are excited and honored to be featured there.

Found!

  #

(SCENE) Metrospace in partnership with Found Magazine announces the opening of its newest exhibition, "FOUND!" which will be unveiled on Wednesday, March 30.  "FOUND!" explores the recovery and reuse of objects that have been lost, misplaced, discarded or left behind.

Local and national artists participating in "FOUND!" use found materials in unique ways to construct their artwork.  Los Angeles native Kelly Lynn Jones uses fabric and collage to create illustrations.  Scott Hocking of Detroit created his art piece using recovered negatives that he found in an abandoned house.  Ann Arbor based Davy Rothbart and Found Magazine have become an international phenomenon over the past year. Rothbart will share numerous amazing finds that strangers have sent in from across the globe. Doug Coombe of Ann Arbor will use photographs of abandoned warehouses and buildings in Detroit, evoking the beauty found in destruction.  The Portland, Ore. based Suite B Artist Collective employed a search, recovery, and create cycle to make art through found images and objects.  The Suite B members participating in "FOUND!" Include East Lansing natives Jen Kruch and Josh Kermiet, as well as Oregon's James Boulton, and Corey Lunn.

International ArtExpo

  #
International ArtExpo
I've been getting emails (spam?) from the following organization... they sound quite interesting though, especially how they formed.

>>
International ArtExpo<<

ArtExpo is an international art event. Its object is to use new technologies to globalize the language of art, to connect the conceptual points of contact of artists working in every part of the world, all united in the thick plot of the world net.

Does this sound familiar?

>>
A group of artists called ArtExpo is formed on the internet. 23 artists decide to change the way they work. They decide to be independent.  ArtExpo is set up as an itinerant encounter. No headquarters, no fixed address, no bonds. <<

It's worthwhile checking their events and call for entries periodically. This might be something OCC would want to be involved in, especially because of the similar foundation of both groups.

OCC + Collaboration .2 Update

  #

Hi all,
Just a little note as to what's going on in OCC land...


We are currently organizing and preparing JOMAS, the journal of words and images, with a scheduled release sometime in May. We recieved an amazing collection of audio and visual work from around the globe: from digital animation, photomontage, documentary shorts and video installation, to sound installation, electronic, hip hop, poetry and lo-fi rock- and it looks right now like we will be releasing a *double* DVD and an audio CD. We're pretty excited.

We have decided to extend the deadline for Collaboration .2 (with no known date yet), because we feel it would be easier for OCC as a collective to secure funds for the travelling exhibition. When we crunched the numbers, it was quite apparent that Collaboration .2 as an internationally travelling exhibition was going to require a lot more money in the bank than we can supply as an 'unofficial' non-profit organization.

Which brings us to our standing as a 501c3 (to those outside the US: this is tax form terminology for legal non-profit status). A handful of OCC members have taken on the task of helping us become a 501c3 organization, and they are dilligently tracking down forms, planning the budget, organizing funds, writing bylaws and all of that other fun stuff (you can view the notes from our meeting here, view pictures here). Our sincere gratitude to those who have come forward to help the group out (if you'd like to lend a hand, please contact us).

We have also asked Peter Richards to design this years
„mini˝ jowai, which we're pretty excited about. We hope you are too (we'll post more info, along with a call for entry and a deadline on the site soon).

So that about does it. Please remember to share and be nice.

Best,
Ben

An OCC future with the 555 Gallery?

  #
Hey folks!

I know I have been silent for a long time, but I like to consider it as "collecting information and observing progress."

Recently, I met a member of the 555 Gallery staff named Nicole Parker. She, and a handful of other people, manage, organize, and maintain the art gallery, which currently resides in Detroit (formerly located in Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor). The reason I write this little announcement pertains to the goals of both the OCC and the 555:  Non-profit Organization. When I considered this, I thought to myself "maybe the OCC and the 555 can work together on it in some way? ...  perhaps work together on other things (i.e. events, performances, shows, fundraisers, etc.) in the future?" From what I understand, the 555 is not just another art gallery. It is a creative space organized and maintained by artists ...  artists not unlike those in the Outside Circle Collective. With that said, my (cheesy) message to both groups for the future is "Communicate, Collaborate, and Create."


For more information on the 555 Gallery, please go to www.555arts.org

If you wish to contact the 555 Gallery, please try e-mailing them through their website
or contact Nicole Parker at nicole@555arts.org


This is Edmund, signing off.

Tim Lane / Travis Pickard at the Majestic

Lansing area painters Tim Lane and Travis Pickard will be exhibiting artwork at the Majestic Theater's Majestic Cafe in Detroit for the month of February.  There is an opening reception Thursday, February 3, 2005 from 8-11 p.m.

These two artists uniquely compliment eachother.  Pickard's figurative and abstract watercolors and acrylics exude movement, echoing the motions of creation.  Lane's literate, iconic canvases burst with dynamic color and percolate with coded messages.

The Clinic is an opportunity for artists to seek private consultations on
their arts-related legal issues with one of the volunteer attorneys. After
an initial consultation at the Artists Legal Clinic if it is determined that
the artist has a more in-depth legal issue the artist will be pre-qualified
using the Volunteer Lawyers for Arts and Culture (VLAC) income guidelines
and the case placed with a volunteer attorney.

The ArtServe Volunteer Lawyers for Arts and Culture is a referral service
that provides pro-bono legal assistance to income eligible artists and arts
and cultural organizations. Legal assistance available covers a wide range
of areas including contracts, copyrights, patents, trademarks, acquisition
of business space, real estate, constitutional rights and First Amendments
issues, etc.

Masters of Illusion: 150 Years of Trompe l’Oeil in America

  #

The newest exhibit at Kresge Art Museum in East Lansing, Michigan:

"When translated from French, trompe l’oeil literally means “to fool-the-eye.” Over 45 works of art will be on display and include paintings by the famous 19th century American artists William Michael Harnett and John Frederick Peto.

Some of the contemporary artists include Tom Friedman, Sylvia Mangold, Robert Gober, Vernon Fisher, Alan Magee, Sam Taylor-Wood, and Federico Castelluccio (known for his role as Furio Giunta on HBO’s The Sopranos).

The trompe l’oeil style has existed for centuries, but in the mid-19th century American painters became its foremost practitioners. These painters try to make the images on the canvas seem three-dimensional and to extend into the viewer’s space. They use depth and receding and jutting planes to achieve the illusion. “For some painters, the illusion lies in the details. In Vernon Fisher’s case, it is a small sculpted fly resting on a large abstract canvas,” says April Kingsley, curator of the exhibition."

EXHIBITION: Masters of Illusion: 150 Years of Trompe l’Oeil in America
DATES: January 10 – March 20, 2005
OPENING: Sunday, January 16, 2-5 p.m.
LOCATION: Kresge Art Museum, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Mich.

Of note:
There will be number of lectures related to the exhibit planned including one on January 25th by visiting artist Jonathan Seliger from New York City. The schedule of events is available on their website.
