Watch More TV | by Animoscillator

Consumer technology is often discarded before its time is truly up. Televisions, an integral part of our daily lives, are often thought to be utilitarian and mundane but when pushed beyond their intended purpose they can be used to create something more. When grouped together they can create something new.

While their electrons are still firing. Animoscillator invites you to Watch More TV.

Delineated Daydreams

by Jacob Garvin

As a collage artist, I find comfort in the unknown - I explore this by frequenting thrift shops and yard sales. I search for books, magazines, brochures, and everything in between; flipping through their old dusty pages until I find an image that strikes me and inspires me to bring it into a new light. I feel that not all art needs to have a deep meaning, and most of my pieces come from that point of view, often with a touch of humor. I hope the viewer can find connection to my art in ways I could never imagine.

Immersion | by Sky

The two series on display are, in essence, created with the same basic concept in mind: Intuition, emotion, movement and their relationship with the process of making art.

To create these works, on both paper and canvas, I employ many different materials: Acrylic, oil, coffee, tea, pastels, dirt, graphite, ink, charcoal, chalk, wax, found papers and metals. Each has its own feeling and flow. Going forward I cannot imagine making work with just one type of media.

Verge Theater Presents: The Gallery, written, directed, and performed by Julien Harris in collaboration with Sid Wilson

The Gallery follows the absurdist journey of a being experiencing self-awakening and the rediscovery of life. It takes a deep dive into how and why we get stuck and the power of art in order to open us back up to the world around us. It explores the relationship between the artists, art, and the audience as well as how all of these pieces are essential both in life and in art. 

Each show brings something new as each performance Syd paints live transforming the space and the minds of both The Being and the audience.
