Claire Feng: Happy People @ School 33

Claire Feng questions what is beyond the obvious in an image. From ordinary images of leisure and contentment, she chooses the ones to which, with the medium of painting, she can inject her personal reading. Through expression and gesture rooted in realism, her painting gives breath and energy to these fleeting moments. In the Members' Gallery.

Los Solos @ The Hexagon
Los Solos Series continues with performances by Ayako Kataoka, Jenny Graf, & Samita Sinha.

Ayako Kataoka is a multidisciplinary artist originally from Tokyo. Born into a family of Buddhist priests and artists, she grew up immersed in an atmosphere of shaka drawings, chant depicted in japanese calligraphy, and the milieu of traditional Japanese temples. Realized in sound, video, installation, and dance performances, her works are often embodied with her heritage dealing with the concept of bringing invisible to visible.

Jenny Gräf
, a dynamic improvisor and stalwart of the Baltimore freek music scene, creates vivid, compelling soundworlds using intuitive/primitive homebrewed electronics, guitar and voice. J. Gräf is one-half of the noise duos Harrius (with Chiara Giovando, two LP’s on Ehse Records) and Metalux (with MV Carbon, recordings on Hanson, Load and 5RC/Kill Rock Stars, etc). She is also known for her interactive social interventions such as The Guitars Project, in which she worked with a group older women with Alzheimer’s to produce music using electric guitars, Threshold, a piece performed at last year’s High Zero event in which the audience triggered sounds by ordering food, and her Rock Carving Oraclestra, which uses psychic channeling through stone to generate readings for selected audience members. Her recent releases include Proud Flesh, a movie soundtrack to her Western film collaboration with Chiara Giovando (, a split 7? with Zaimph as well as a split Metalux/K.K. Rampage.

Trained in classical Hindustani vocal music, composer/ performer Samita Sinha uses the range of her voice together with electronics and multilingual text in solo performance and multichannel vocal pieces. Besides her solo work, Sinha has a duo project with Marc Cary called ANATOMY (electronic/ Hindustani/ jazz), uses her voice as an improvising instrument in jazz ensembles (in Marc Cary’s FOCUS Trio, Sunny Jain Collective, and Eternal Now), and has toured internationally as a vocalist with the late performance poet Sekou Sundiata’s the 51st (dream) state.
Performance Date: Friday, March 5, 2010 doors open at 8pm, show starts at 8:30 $6

Personal Effects: The Photography of Jack Radcliff @ Gallery 1448
Jack Radcliffe’s intimate portraits of family, friends, fellow artists and performers reveal so much more than what facial expressions may convey. In fact, the expression on a subject’s face may act as a barrier to the feelings preserved behind the façade. Like the short story writer, Raymond Carver, Radcliffe weaves tales by illuminating the not-so-commonplace details that define his subject’s space and time. Radcliffe conjures an image that appears somehow familiar, so that rather than feeling like a voyeur watching a stranger, the viewer recognizes fragments of the private situations, and is enticed to relate them to his/ her own personal experiences.
