Artist Brian Zegeer was in a showing of the Torch Cinema series at Jakie Klempay this last Thursday night, July 11th.
The screening culminated with an improvised video and sound performance by Brian and his art-partner, Baby Copperhead. In their artwork of the same title, they used an expansive repository of video clips, stop motion animations, sound recordings and circuit-bent instruments to riff on the 1959 Robert Frank/Alfred Leslie film, Pull My Daisy.
The Torch Cinema series is an ongoing project exploring what we watch and how we watch it, as organized by Michael Perrone (MFA '04). There was also said to be barbecue at the event.

Shanti also recently partnered with a group of female poet veterans, Warrior Writers, to host an event at the AIR Gallery on Sunday, July 14th. The goal of the event was to help bridge the gap between civilians and veterans by using the gallery as a common ground where diverse truths and experiences can be witnessed and valued.

Based on the notion of “non-place,” a phrase coined by anthropologist Marc Augé, the 2013 Summer Juried Exhibition features 28 artists, each exploring how non-place—those locations of seeming anonymity devoid of time, such as freeways and airports—can unearth instances of humanity, storytelling, and belonging often associated with the particularities of “place.”
Non-place can be anything and anywhere: the haunting stillness of a hospital room, the front seat of a van, or even our own bodies in transit. Join us as we investigate Augé’s phrase, considering the various interpretations the concept of “non-place” may hold, and all of the meanings that can be discovered through those interpretations.

Linnea Paskow (MFA '02) and Sarah Gamble (MFA '01) in group show at Grizzly Grizzly in Philadelphia, Opening July 5th
|Love's Industrial Park, 9x13, 2012 - Linnea Paskow|
Whether working in two or three dimensions, each of the featured artists actively investigates the materiality of art, employing expressive processes that invite intuition and transformation.
Artist, Linnea Paskow sees a psychological connection between the works on view, noting a shared “dream work of the unconscious” in these evocative works as they hover between figurative and the abstract. In keeping with that observation, Linnea's work explores the inner-mind while using color and light to evoke emotional content. Similarly lingering between the perceptual and the abstraction, Sarah's paintings use spontaneous mark-making to show a process of visual exploration through action that explores a shared unconscious.
Both artists will be in attendance at the opening on Friday night, July 5th.
Opening: July 5th 6-10pm
On View: July 5th - 27th
