Abstracted Views Art Exhibit

Abstracted Views by Rita Tavilla

The show is a collection of two mediums that have the common denominator of an abstracted interpretation. 

Abstraction lends itself well to the viewer seeing her/his own individual view without worrying that viewer's vision is the same as the artist's.

Both are valid and both have value.

Opening Reception: Saturday, May 4th @ 11 - 12 noon.

All are welcome.

Abstracted Views Art Exhibit Reception
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Abstracted Views by RitaTavilla

The show is a collection of two mediums that have the common denominator of an abstracted interpretation. 

Abstraction lends itself well to the viewer seeing her/his own individual view without worrying that viewer's vision is the same as the artist's.

Both are valid and both have value.

All are welcome.

What's a TED Talk?  TED talks are concise. Because their time is short (generally, 5-18 minutes), TEDspeakers have generally done the hard work of cutting out any extraneous ideas. Ideally, every word of a TED talk counts — and that's very different from the public speaking most of us are used to!

Short Film Club hosted by Ward Clark

Short Film Club 

This Month's Feature Film "Merger" 

Image result for keiichi matsuda merger

Keiichi Matsuda is back at filmmaking. Merger, his first narrative work since 2016’s viral short HYPER-REALITY, is online for good starting today, and in a short 4 minutes the piece artfully extends Matsuda’s existing ruminations on broad societal trends such as augmented reality, techno-capitalism, and the creeping gamification/optimization of life, while extending their expression to a new medium—360/VR. 

 

Each month we watch a varirty of short films and discuss the good, the bad, and the just plain weird.

Bonus: WE HAVE SNACKS!

Join the Facebook Group for more fun!
