PLATFORM 22
Friday, November 10, 2017
6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

ArtSeed, in collaboration with the Floyd County Government and a grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs and the Indiana Office of Tourism Development, presents Platform 22. Platform 22 is a public arts initiative designed to bring arts and education to the residents of Floyd County.

Spread across 10 locations, each outdoor wall provides an opportunity to display important pieces of art through history, local art, and community art. Each location will provide a unique experience with alternating pieces.

Come celebrate with us as we unveil the “Popup Gallery designs”. The Artists selected for this round are part of the Louisville Biennial Exhibit at ArtSeed Gallery and Brick Street Studios in New Albany and ArtSeed Educators. The original artworks, the artists, and the Floyd County Commissioners will be on hand to present the project, and answer questions about the program. Artists Include: Kimberly Carroll Raber, David Modica, Kevin Schultz, Wini Harrison, David Becker, David Imbrogno.

The program name, Platform 22, was chosen as both a homage to the county’s railroad heritage through the local train platforms and as a concept of transporting people to new and exciting places through art.

Platform 22 is designed to use currently underutilized public space and transform it into areas where the community can sit, view, discuss, and interact in a vibrant public space. This will not only connect the community to the art, history and heritage, but will provide opportunities for connections between members of the community.

An important component of Platform 22 is the collaboration with local partners including: Indiana Office of Community & Rural Affairs, Indiana Office of Tourism Development, Floyd County Commissioners Office, Floyd County Parks Department, Open Door Youth Services, Floyd County 4H, Floyd County Purdue Extension, New Albany Floyd County Public Library, Jacobi Toombs and Lanz Inc. and ArtSeed, LLC.

The reception is free and open to the public and is concurrent with our Holiday Showcase Sale.

The showcase will include affordable handmade works perfect for Holiday Gifts. Please by Local and support your local Arts Community. The reception is concurrent with James Bourne Gallery, “Studio Painters”

David Imbrogno: One Hundred Days Project Performance

 

As part of the ArtSeed city wide exhibit program, we are collaborating with Louisville Photo Biennial www.louisvillephotobiennial.com, Brick Street Studios, and Jeffersonville Public Library to produce a series of exhibits and programming throughout Clark and Floyd Counties. The first in a series of exhibits features renowned local artists, David Becker, David Imbrogno, and David Modica. These artists are the featured exhibit at the new ArtSeed Gallery.
 David Becker,  Born in Louisville, KY in 1960 , was inspired at a young age by a love of the outdoors and a world as seen through the pages of National Geographic. His hope is that these found images will show both the beauty and fragileness of our environmental and societal surroundings. Becker says “Art is an act of discovery. Finding perspectives that evoke an emotional response is what drives my exploration. As a photographer I work hard to make images that freeze both time and space. Working with both color and monotone images I use space, negative space, shapes, line, tonality or color as the primary object of the image”.
David Imbrogno, former director of Bernheim Forest, artist and naturalist.   His photographs are an exploration in noticing, and focusing on the natural world using photo essays, observations, photo/word poems and some random thoughts. David’s exhibit and lecture will be based on the One Hundred Days Project. “This year I am making a commitment to chronicle these mini-journeys with one hundred unique stories and photographs, from one hundred different days, all from my own little home.
Join me in this exploration of staying put, being who you are, and perhaps most importantly, being where you are” said Imbrogno.
David Modica expresses his personal vision in black and white film and prints in a traditional darkroom. He enjoys capturing places and buildings of historical significance as well as the urban landscape.
Modica’s personal work tends to be thematic and project-based. He enjoys capturing places and buildings of historical significance as well as the urban landscape. The work in the exhibit was inspired by a recent trip to Modica, Sicily.

David Imbrogno: One Hundred Days Project Performance

 

As part of the ArtSeed city wide exhibit program, we are collaborating with Louisville Photo Biennial www.louisvillephotobiennial.com, Brick Street Studios, and Jeffersonville Public Library to produce a series of exhibits and programming throughout Clark and Floyd Counties.
Darlington Pairs is a New Albany based Indie Rock group specializing in original music and other cool things. The music video for their first single, “Low,” is featured on their upcoming album, “Caravan,”. There will be an album release party at ArtSeed October 14, 2017 from 7-10 pm.
ArtSeed Director, Julie Schweitzer saw the video and was immediately captured by the theme of growth, which is the mission of ArtSeed. The video will be featured on screens throughout the photo biennial exhibit, “DAVID”, at ArtSeed. Later members of the band will join with David Scopelliti and friends for a backyard concert.
Cliffy Madden, the mastermind behind the video, had this to say: “The overall theme of Low is about growing, and we wanted the video to mesmerize the viewer as you watch plants and flowers grow before your eyes. I’ve always loved tape and how unreliable it can be, randomly misbehaving in the coolest ways. I used that as my inspiration when creating all the warpiness and glitching throughout. There’s a repeating line in the song, ‘Throw a little love my way,’ which made me want to use animations conveying love in a unique way.”
The album, “Caravan,” was recorded at Goldsmith Studios in Louisville, and mixed and mastered by Skyler Bready and Cliffy Madden at Domo House Studios.
Darlington Pairs hopes to see you there, as well as at their upcoming Album Release Show on October 14th!
