JUNE 7-29 EXHIBIT
Photographers from the artist collective AgWorks present work that explores the concept of rituals and provide their interpretations of what rituals mean in both traditional and non-traditional contexts. From ancient Samaritan rituals to personal recording of the world around us, the show challenges our ideas of what ritual means and how the practice of these rituals informs our experiences. Artists: Ohad Cadji, Alex Gelat, Ellen Hanna, Jeff Hubert, Jessica Kalmar, Mandy Kendall, Dale Lazar, Michael Novara, Robert Olsen, Michael Rosella, Hyla Urbany.
The opening is on Fri. June 7 from 7-10 PM, and includes live performance by local songwriter Chris Hannigan at 8 pm and Texas garage-rockers The Black Shades at 9 pm. Donations are requested. The exhibit runs until June 29, and is viewable during evening events and by appointment at 412-361-2262.
