For your amusement and stimulation, we are offering art combined with film and music. Since we like to have fun at the gallery, the June 16, July 12 and August 4 performances described below will be picnics in the “park” So please bring your own refreshments, chairs, and blankets. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for all performances. Admission is FREE.
Here’s our Summer Salon lineup:
Grandma Pushed the Button, a film and original score by Waschering Maschine
Waschering Maschine is Billy Franklin, Reid Kruger, and Tom Schroeder. Grandma Pushed the Button is their first collaborative project – a full album and accompanying film comprised of found sound, musical progressions mined from improvisational jam sessions, and stories from travels across South America. Found video, still images and animation lend imagery to the music.
