In a hyper-mediated and connected world, former VisArts Bresler Resident Artist Corwin Levi longs for experiences and places where he feels lost. Relying on his own wits and senses allows him access to a heightened, expanded awareness that fades when the GPS system is activated. In his solo exhibition of paintings, void drawings, video, and void photographs, Levi concentrates on spaces of unknowable possibility. He paints waves and metaphorical skies full of stars to engage that possibility- both in the outer physical world and the individual’s  interior equivalent. About the artist: Corwin Levi is a mixed media, project-based artist who whose practice centers around transforming ideas into experiences. He has shown across the country and been awarded fellowships and artist residencies both here and internationally. [less-]

The best kind of kids’ music doesn’t sound like kids’ music at all. It just sounds like music: authentic, unadulterated, and full of joy. This is where Grammy winner Dan Zanes excels. Zanes is a celebrated songwriter, songfinder, and entertainer. Inspired by the Lead Belly records he listened to as a child, Zanes mixes old and new songs from a variety of traditions into an artful homespun sound he compares to “a pile of driftwood and bent nails.” Every Dan Zanes show is a party in which families and friends sing with gusto (and dance!) together. Heralded as “the family-music genre’s most outspoken and eloquent advocate” (Time), his music has been featured on Sesame Street, Playhouse Disney, Nickelodeon, HBO Family, and Sprout. [less-]

In a hyper-mediated and connected world, former VisArts Bresler Resident Artist Corwin Levi longs for experiences and places where he feels lost. Relying on his own wits and senses allows him access to a heightened, expanded awareness that fades when the GPS system is activated. In his solo exhibition of paintings, void drawings, video, and void photographs, Levi concentrates on spaces of unknowable possibility. He paints waves and metaphorical skies full of stars to engage that possibility- both in the outer physical world and the individual’s  interior equivalent. About the artist: Corwin Levi is a mixed media, project-based artist who whose practice centers around transforming ideas into experiences. He has shown across the country and been awarded fellowships and artist residencies both here and internationally. [less-]

The best kind of kids’ music doesn’t sound like kids’ music at all. It just sounds like music: authentic, unadulterated, and full of joy. This is where Grammy winner Dan Zanes excels. Zanes is a celebrated songwriter, songfinder, and entertainer. Inspired by the Lead Belly records he listened to as a child, Zanes mixes old and new songs from a variety of traditions into an artful homespun sound he compares to “a pile of driftwood and bent nails.” Every Dan Zanes show is a party in which families and friends sing with gusto (and dance!) together. Heralded as “the family-music genre’s most outspoken and eloquent advocate” (Time), his music has been featured on Sesame Street, Playhouse Disney, Nickelodeon, HBO Family, and Sprout. [less-]
