PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITIONS OPEN AT THE FOUNDRY ART CENTRE

June 4 – August 22, 2021

The Foundry Art Centre is pleased to announce the opening of three solo photography exhibitions. David Johnson’s It Can Be This Way Always, Destiny Mata’s The Way We Were, and Bridget Murphy Milligan’s Wondertales: The Imprint of Child’s Play.

It Can Be This Way Always documents David Johnson’s ongoing, 13-year photo series of the Kerrville Folk Festival in Central Texas – an annual 18-day event that has been in existence since 1972. Johnson’s large-format photographs capture a distinctive subculture that emerges within an isolated 5-acre ranch through portraits of the festival-goers and the Texas Hill Country.

Destiny Mata’s The Way We Were showcases the underground punk scene of the outer boroughs of New York, specifically Punx of Color, whose shows are held to help financially support the fight for civil justice. In an ever-changing world, these photographs recall a not-so-distant past when the underground punk scene was alive and well and living in color.

Through fanciful color photographs, Bridget Murphy Milligan’s Wondertales: The Imprint of Child’s Play celebrates the spirit and complexity of childhood, investigating the inventive play and uninhibited curiously of children. The compositions offer inspiration for the viewer to reconnect with their inner child, recalling early childhood memories and experiences that leave permanent imprints on the consciousness.

“There is a fascinating connection between these three exhibitions,” explains Sean FitzGibbons, Executive Director of the Foundry Art Centre, “Mata’s The Way We Were and Johnson’s It Can Be This Way Always both document events centered on live music. Each music scene may be about as regionally different as you can get, from the urban landscape of New York to the rural camp grounds of the Texas Hill Country; however, there are immediate similarities showcased within the shared sense of community built around the love of music. Murphy Milligan’s images present a wonderful foundation as her work highlights the childlike sense of imagination that ties all three exhibitions together.” 

Exhibitions open June 4th with an opening reception from 5-8pm. Exhibitions at the Foundry are free and open to the public. Social distancing and mask wearing is enforced.

Cirque Italia is enforcing all recommendations set forth by the C.D.C. and local municipalities. The safety of our guests and employees are of the utmost importance to us. Every member of the Cirque Italia family is committed to the health and wellness of our fans. As such, we have made certain adjustments and accommodations in order to comply with the safety guidelines set forth by local and state officials. These adjustments and accommodations include some of the following:

  • Mask mandate for anyone over 3 years of age (available for purchase if needed)
  • Increased number of hand sanitization stations in and around tent

In order to assist us to better socially distance, please purchase your tickets in advance at www.cirqueitalia.com, by phone (941-704-8572), or at our on-site ticket office the week of show

Cirque Italia has sought to bring a high-class experience to audiences all over the United States since its inception in 2012. This year will be no exception as we take you on an exhilarating expedition in search of a pirate’s booty! 

The story begins with our Ringmaster “Clown Rafinha” fishing when he unexpectedly catches a bottle with a treasure map stuffed inside. His ensuing journey takes the audience through storms on the high seas, dreams of angelic aerialists, pirate fights, and more. You will see swashbucklers balancing upside down on a rum barrel, juggling knives, and even one having a run-in with a mermaid. Your jaws will be dropped and you will be hanging on the edge of your seats with our suspenseful Crossbow act and our dangerous Wheel of Death performances. Try not to flinch and look away if you don’t want to miss any of the excitement! Will Clown Rafinha finally defeat the other pirates who are after his treasure and claim it for himself? You’ll have to see our show for yourself to find out!

Manuel Rebecchi, president and owner of Cirque Italia is tremendously proud of his circus heritage and feels extremely privileged to be able to share it with you in such a fun and memorable way.
