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.

Spokesman for the Oracle

Verge Theater Presents: A Staged Reading of Spokesman for the Oracle by Emeka Nwabueze and directed by Nnamdi Kanaga. 

Spokesman for the Oracle revolves around Ikem, a young medical student, his biological and legal father (Chidi) and his legal mother (Oyibo). The play’s story relays how Ikem’s father concealed that as a school principal, he had an affair with a student named Nneka and that he impregnated her. Eighteen years after Nneka wants Ikem back. Her attempt through deception leads to the unravelling of deeply concealed information on all sides.
