The Electric Womb
July 7 to Sept 29, 2023
“We all come from the womb, these are our stories.” That is the simple, straightforward theme of this show which is full of narratives. It is the art which communicates the story, but also the poetry that accompanies these images and which ties them together. Although boys are born, of course, all the artists in this exhibition are “womyn”, including Gwyn Henry, Jill Badonsky, Kelly Bowen with Anna Zappoli, Debbie Solan, Kira Carrillo Corser, Marjorie Pezzoli, Tish Ince, Deborah Ramos, and Tara Graviss, whose works are illustrated in this article.
One of my favorite poems by Anna Zappoli is not included in
the show, but the simple words open up so many possibilities and that is the
essence of good art:

Deborah Ramos and Marjorie Pezzoli are co-curators of this particular Electric Show. Future shows will include The Electric Blender, an all-inclusive show and The Electric Crayon, a children's show. You can listen to the Electric Womb beginning stories and hear some poetry on this video.

& Larry Caveney : Turn! Turn! Turn!
April 4 to August 11
The works in this show are great expressions of the vibrancy and happiness that movement bestows to us in life. But what I really enjoyed was the dance between the two artists. Both are jokesters and this exhibition is full of those moments of glee. Larry Caveney is famous for his series, Grown Men Dancing and Mark Siprut’s game with a aim to shoot a target to his heart was made to be impossible to win.
