Three new exhibitions

Optic Nerve IX- a rescreening of the annual film festival held at the MOCA-North Miami.
For a full description go here.

The second exhibition is a short film by Melissa McDowell. Nauli is a 16mm film loop presents a woman who moves her stomach and intestines from one side to another. The intense practice has a profound effect creating mental clarity and increasing power in the subconscious or mental layer of the mind. Nauli is an exercise of the classical Hatha Yoga but is not often taught in yoga schools. Nauli is considered a difficult exercise, which can be only learned with perseverance and patience.

The third exhibition is Kelley McKee, illustrations of Biota of the Abacoa Greenway. These are illustrations she did for her thesis.

All exhibits are free. For hours check here.

Special exhibit

This month the library is spotlighting one of our own John D. MacArthur Campus staff members, Larry Brown. Larry was born in Kodiak, Alaska and says that has a strong influence on his art. His style is Folk Art. This current exhibition features some of his favorite pieces, fish.

Larry has had five years of formal art training at No Ink in Connecticut with Lil Maxwell. When asked if there are any artists that influence the work, he states that in addition to Ms. Maxwell, two of his influences are Van Gough and Billy Crockit. Brown’s art is rarely shown because he has less time to devote to this interest.

Like most folk artists, the making of the art brings great enjoyment, and there needs to be nothing else about it. Characteristically folk art is not influenced by movements in academic or fine art circles. The craft element is the main purpose or focus of the work. Larry is also a licensed contractor and electrician.

Folk art typically uses a style of a particular region or culture. In Florida, fish are a popular theme. Brown’s work does not disappoint the local appetite.

This exhibit will be on view from October 20 - January 15, 2009.

Martin Eduardo Casuso
March 17 - May 9, 2008

This mixed media, interactive show takes a look at the concept of the “old maid” in relation to the unrealistic ideal of family life depicted in the television and film of his youth. In his mind though the term is gender interchangeable. For in this time period if Aunt Belle or Uncle Stan were still single in their thirties, they were shown in a sad, comic or sexually subverted light. They were often portrayed spending quiet afternoons and evenings in pursuit of G-rated pleasures creating meticulous, finicky decorative items for a happy home they would never have; as if this activity was enough to satisfy their frustrated physical passions, their unfulfilled romantic dreams.

Also on exhibit:

Jonathan Stein
Shiny, Sparkly Goes Down Easy
March 17 - May 9, 2008
