Jane Cassidy's Square Ball at Art for Arts Sake 2013
Jane Cassidy, second year MFA candidate in Digital Arts, will be presenting Square Ball on Saturday October 5 from 6-9pm on the 400 block of Julia Street. This one-night-only site specific art installation is part of the Contemporary Art Center's annual Art for Art's Sake block party.
Square Ball is an immersive audio visual installation for tape, projection and fog machine. Fog fills the room to highlight the trajectory of light from the projection creating a perceptible 3d animated light sculpture. The tangible, moving light creates a room of luminescence within the darkness. The work encourages audience movement and participation. By using the body to interrupt the light spectacular and captivating effects can be created. The work gives space for the audience to explore fog patterns and to play with the light. Square Ball offers a multi-sensory experience that can isolate, transport and excite the audience with the combination of sound and light moving in synchrony.

Gene Koss: Sunrise opens at Arthur Roger Gallery on White Linen Night
Sunrise, a solo exhibition of recent glass and steel sculpture by Professor Gene Koss, will be on view at Arthur Roger Gallery, located at 432 Julia Street, from August 3 – September 14, 2013. The gallery will host an opening reception with the artist in attendance, Saturday, August 3 from 6-9 pm in conjunction with “White Linen Night.”
Gene Koss blends simple process with advanced fabrication techniques to create glass sculptures that reveal the constant inspiration provided by the rural landscapes of his youth and life. The internationally known artist’s vision remains profoundly humanist, yet this recent work presents an intentional rawness. Several of the works in this exhibition incorporate found object pieces that have been woven in with the artist’s own dialogue. The work ranges in scale from large cast glass and steel sculptures to smaller blocks dubbed “glass drawings.”
Slow Light: new work by AnnieLaurie Erickson opens at Antenna Gallery
In this series of photographs, AnnieLaurie Erickson, Assistant Professor of Photography, addresses the phenomenon of afterimages– the latent imagery that remains on our retinas after we look at the sun or bright objects in the dark. Using handmade artificial retinas that absorb and release the remains of light, Erickson simulates an essentially unphotographable visual experience. Opening reception is Saturday, July 13, 6-10pm at Antenna Gallery, 3718 St. Claude Avenue, New Orleans.
