Poems to the Sea
Ley Lines Publication
Debut at Comics Art Brooklyn Nov 7
Poems to the Sea is an unofficial sequel to Twombly’s drawings by the same name. It is the sounding and imprecise mapping of what lies between us, the surface, and the void.
Ley Lines is a quarterly publication dedicated to exploring the intersection of comics and the various fields of art & culture that inspire us. Co-published by Grindstone Comics and Czap Books.
So Far Solo Exhibition
Santa Fe Gallery
Oct 11 – Nov 13
The phrase “so far” can be two opposing things. On one hand it means “up to this point” and on the other it may relay something in the distance. Both interpretations imply being a one point on a continuum.
Erin Curry | So Far, opens with a free public reception, 7-9 p.m. Friday, October 2, 2015, at the Santa Fe Gallery, room M-147 at the Northwest Campus of Santa Fe College, 3000 NW 83 Street, Gainesville. The exhibit will remain on view through November 13, 2015. Gallery hours are Mon.- Fri., 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Admission is free and the gallery is open to the public.
Curry, a recent University of Florida MFA recipient, presents a site-specific installation constructed throughout the week and will unveil the completed space at the opening reception. Curry will be in residency at Santa Fe College and will work with and meet the Visual Art and Dance students during the installation process. Curry says of her work, “The fullness of experience is too complex: the present moment, memory, and our expectations all intersect. Try as we might, something is always lost in translation. To me, the sharing of experiences often feels like shining a light through a mist where the reflection obscures more than it reveals, yet it remains an important step in orientating myself in an existence that is fleeting and disconcertingly chaotic. It is this tense desire – to articulate the enigmatic or, at the least, to find comfort in ambiguity- that drives my work.”
