Curated by Dr. Jeffrey Hughes, the exhibition Dispositive Environments will highlight the tension between technology and permanence, as well as the too often neglected ecological consequences of technology’s rapid expansion. 

The juxtaposition of still necessary mechanisms and technologies of the Industrial Revolution associated with, for example, sub-surface mining or railroad transport, are intertwined with the technological engines of transnational commerce and information economies. Art that responds to this intersection of social, symbolic and political forces will be shown with research-based documentation. 

The concept of the dispositive is here related to the context in which the work is executed and also experienced. Instead of merely a locus for the transmission of expression and content, works in the exhibition will encourage the viewer/participant to construct his or her own meaning.

Ursula Biemann

She is also the founder of Write Your Life workshops for people of all ages and backgrounds, and has judged the national "Poetry Out Loud" contest for high school students in the U.S.

Beginning Oil Painting

Hannah Miller

Thursdays- March 23 - April 27

Explore color, texture, and form in this six-week beginning oil painting course. Students will learn how to stretch and prepare a canvas, set up a palette, and learn basic color theory and color mixing techniques which will best produce clean, vibrant, space-shaping colors. Students will also experiment with painting mediums and work with different brushes and palette knife techniques to discover and develop one’s own personal style.

 

Hannah Miller, a Carlinville native, holds a BFA in photography and painting, and an MFA in photography and video and has attended Illinois State University, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and Rhode Island School of Design. She is a big believer in the positive impact art and creativity can have in rural communities, and is super excited about the MAC opening just a half-hour away from her home!  

 Painting holds a special place in her practice; it is a more hands-on approach to the meditative seeing, looking, and studying of color and the relationships of objects that she works towards in photographs.  The way that color can shape form in painting is a mystery that will never cease to amaze, and she hopes that she can share that sense of wonder with her students.

MATERIALS:

Paintbrushes 

Palette knives 

Piece of glass for palette- around 8 x 10" or largerWooden stretcher bars- can be made, not bought

Jon Stickley Trio has been making waves with the independent and fan-funded release of their 2nd album, Lost at Last, this past October. The originality and sheer energy of this genre-bending ensemble serves as a welcome wake up call for those who experience it. With roots in gypsy jazz, bluegrass, and hip-hop in an “exhilarating all-acoustic swirl” (Acoustic Guitar Magazine), Jon Stickley Trio combines Jon Stickley’s rapid-fire flatpicking guitar with the sultry and wild, yet refined, melodies of Lyndsay Pruett on violin set over the deep groove of Patrick Armitage on drums. The three have fused their collective styles into a repertoire of exciting and innovative original music along with some captivating covers. Lost at Last was recorded in the band’s hometown of Asheville, NC at the iconic Echo Mountain Studios under the watchful eye of producer Dave King (The Bad Plus).

The New York Times’ Nate Chinen writes “… there’s hardy cohesion among the players — no less on the Gypsy standard ‘Valse de Wasso’ than on ‘Darth Radar’ a turbocharged original with a ska upbeat and a shredding melody. And when Mr. Stickley and friends turn to bluegrass, as on ‘The High Road,’ by Tim O’Brien, they sound both respectful and free.” Premier Guitar Magazine also took note of “Darth Radar,” with Jason Shadrick calling it, “a rapid-fire take that moves from a serious ska beat to burning surf-style runs that would make Dick Dale proud.”

Left Bank Books presents author Robert Long Foreman, who will sign and discuss his essay collection, "Among Other Things," and poet Amelia Martens, who will sign and read from her poetry collection, "The Spoons in the Grass are There To Dig a Moat."

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of either "Among Other Things" or "The Spoons in the Grass are There To Dig a Moat" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line. 

The essays collected in "Among Other Things" reveal the depth and significance of mundane objects—a puzzle, a skillet, an antique cannon, an avocado sandwich. With wry wit and insight, Robert Long Foreman examines small things close-up, casting his eye on what we have in our closets and on our shelves. With the personal and collective histories of everyday touchstones in view, the essays explore ancestry, inheritance, and the implications of ownership.

Amelia Martens's prose poems in "The Spoons in the Grass are There To Dig a Moat" reveal expansive ideas in compressed language. From the domestic to the geopolitical, from the mundane to the miraculous, these brief vignettes take the form of prayers, parables, confessions, and revelations. Intimate and urgent, Martens's poems are strange, darkly funny, and utterly beguiling.
