OCC's New Year's resolution: become a non-profit

  #

Hi everyone! Hope you all had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday season! I am writing to bring a matter of interest to the collective.  We have been talking for some time now about filing for 501(c)3 status to become an official not-for-profit organization/association.  There are many benefits to this, many of which I am still learning, but basically it would give us appropriate status for applying to arts funding and grants.

There is, of course, a process of filing and applying to the IRS for this status, that would most easily be taken care of by a committee of people.  Basic steps of the process include (taken from a 501(3)c on-line Fact Sheet: (Another good resource to look at is the IRS website.)

1. coming up with a 2-year budget

2. writing up the by-laws and articles of incorporation

3. raising $500 for the processing fee

4. obtaining a Tax ID number

So in true collective form, we would like to hold a meeting to collectively write the by-laws, etc, and discuss this new direction for OCC. The meeting will be held at Amer's Cafe on South State Street in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA on Sunday January 16th, at 1PM.

Moholy-Nagy This is a great opportunity to catch up with fellow OCCer's and work together to further our collective cause, so hope to see you there!

Also, for anyone interested we are going over to the University of Michigan Museum of Art to check out their exhibit of Moholy-Nagy's later photography.

A little work... A little Play!

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

  #
spidersmalltpsmallsmall

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.

Shaking up the Zodiac -- What Sign are you Really?

  #

It all started when I had a discussion over the holidays with my niece Meredith about the Chinese Zodiac.  I had always been under the impression that I was a Tiger, since I was born in 1974.  I did not realize that the breaks in the year occur at a different time in the Chinese Zodiac (the placemats at restaurants don't go into this much detail!), so, I am in fact born in the year of the Ox.

Later in the week, I was hanging out with my friend David, and the topic came up again.  He pulled out an astronomy book and told me about a controversy concerning a 13th constellation that has moved into the traditional Zodiac.  This thirteenth sign, Ophiuchus the Serpent Bearer, falls between Scorpio and Sagittarius, and shifts all the signs somewhat.

Now, I am a skeptic by nature, but I do read my horoscope frequently (even fortune cookies captivate me), and I always felt that I was very much a Capricorn.  According to this new information, I am in fact a Sagittarius!

Sun Sign    Meaning   Dates 
01:   Pisces   the Fishes   12 Mar to 18 Apr 
02:   Aries   the Ram   19 Apr to 13 May 
03:   Taurus   the Bull   14 May to 19 Jun 
04:   Gemini   the Twins   20 Jun to 20 Jul 
05:   Cancer   the Crab   21 Jul to 9 Aug
06:  Leo   the Lion   10 Aug to 15 Sep 
07:  Virgo   the Maiden   16 Sep to 30 Oct 
08:  Libra   the Scales   31 Oct to 22 Nov 
09:  Scorpius   the Scorpion   23 Nov to 29 Nov   
10:  Ophiuchus    the Serpent Bearer   30 Nov to 17 Dec 
11  Sagittarius   the Archer   18 Dec to 18 Jan 
12:  Capricornus     the Sea Goat   19 Jan to 15 Feb 
13:  Aquarius   the Water Carrier   16 Feb to 11 Mar

This would seem to throw the whole astrological world into disarray.  Here's a link or two with more about Ophiuchus.

My Funny Valentines -- Look Out, Hallmark!

  #

 

I know OCC'ers are hopeless romantics, so...

I will be producing a set of 5 different unique Valentine's Day cards from my hearts series. They will be printed out on high quality paper, 4.75"x4.75" (just the right size to slip into a CD jewel case with that sultry Valentine's mix you've made for your special someone). The sets of 5 will be available exclusively from me for $12/set. The messages are somewhat irreverent/saucy, inspired by those insipid little candy hearts. Contact me to pre-order your set(s)!

                                   

4 of the 5 designs are pictured above.  The 5th design will be exclusive to the 2005 set. To see larger images, click on the thumbnails.

Julie Murray

  #


A few weeks ago I got a chance to see Julie Murray (and her films) at the Detroit Film Center, a perfect venue for such an event- with it's stunning projection and intimate screening area. The screening was well paced with Murray discussing the films between each half hour section. Here's a little more on her and her films, which I would recommend seeking out if you enjoy experimental film:

After relocating from Ireland to the Bay Area in the late eighties, Murray became known for her edgy, deftly edited found-footage films that used do-it-yourself rephotography and sound mixing. Her later work includes sensual, rhythmic found-footage explorations that also incorporate original footage, such as Conscious, Anathema, and If You Stand With Your Back to the Slowing of the Speed of Light in Water. A beautiful, microscopic study of insects, Micromoth was in part inspired by the surrealistic scientific films of Jean Painlevé, while Fl. Oz  and Untitled (blood) are also intricate, focused studies. 
She has completed around 20 short films to date, a number of which have been included in programs at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Cinematheque and the Pacific Film Archive. This year her work will be included in the upcoming Whitney Biennial 2004.

Openings for January '05 Show at 555

  #

This came to me via Joe Scott:

"i wanted to write to ask you if you'd want to be in a show i'm putting together.  it's going to be at the 555 gallery in detroit for january, 05.  i know it's kind of soon, but i if i get enough people together, we'd be able to make a good show.   up to 5 pieces, as big as you want them to be, and it's gonna cost about $10-15 for each person (because we have to pay for the space).   I would also like your help with getting more people involved.   i'd like to use outside circle as a tool to let more people know about this, but i'm having trouble using the message board, and i was wondering if you wouldn't mind helping me out with that, and also spreading word of mouth would be awesome.  i was thinking that if all of our normal crew of 6 or 7 people invited one or two of their friends, we'd have plenty of pieces to show.  if people need to ship it in from somewhere far away, we can try to work out how to do that and keep the cost minimal.  so far, we've got the normal group -- travis, aaron, me, dorothy, tim lane, matt cygnet (probably), you (hopefully), jeremy couillard, chris t. (can't spell her last name),  and anyone else you'd like to invite, plus any of the occ people that want to show."

from Peter:

555 is a great gallery in Detroit, so this is a good opportunity if you want to exhibit in Motown.

Thought some of you Lansing-ites might be interested in a photo exhibition that will be featuring a friend of mine, Stan Simmons. Here's the specs:

On October 3rd the Absolute Gallery in Lansing's "Old Town" will have a reception as part of the Sunday art walk.  Stan will be the featured artist for the month and have about 25 prints up.
There is a reception from 1 to 4 PM.
The gallery is on Grand River a half block up the hill from Turner Street.

"If you can make the reception it should be fun, and since it is in old town there will also be three other galleries in walking distance having their opennings at the same time."  - Stan S.

Project Censored 2005

  #

The media research group Project Censored (www.projectcensored.org) at Sonoma State University has released their top 25 stories "that have been overlooked, under-reported or self-censored by the country’s major national news media" in 2003-2004. So they might not be censored in the traditional sense of government blockades on publishing, nevertheless these are obviously important stories that for some reason don't attract enough attention. The top 5: #1: Wealth Inequality in 21st Century Threatens Economy and Democracy; #2: Ashcroft vs. the Human Rights Law that Holds Corporations Accountable;  #3: Bush Administration Censors Science; #4: High Levels of Uranium Found in Troops and Civilians; #5: The Wholesale Giveaway of Our Natural Resources

You can also check the Project Censored's judges to see who decides through a link to Detroit's Metro Times, which published the top 10 in its Sept. 9-14 issue, at http://www.metrotimes.com/editorial/story.asp?id=6682
