CHRISTINA HUNT WOOD:

“Road Soda: The Mapping of a Rural Space” is my solo exhibition of works in video, photography, and alternative media that document, deconstruct, and assign new meaning to spent beer cans found in ditches throughout our rural region.

These cans, in their “natural habitat,” are evidence of rebellion, against the backdrop of an idyllic landscape. For the perpetrator, this displaced resentment for the law of the land might feel like power, but in fact, the act mars the very space they cherish and can put them (and others) at risk. Through the documentation of these road sodas, I am able to recognize patterns and capture routines, which inspired the creation of “maps” made from cans collected on specific roads or counties. www.christinahuntwood.com

Photography by Chumin Wu, Zongwei Shen, Jingyun Chen, Mike Gan, & Taohen Zhao

This group of photos was taken by five photographers who were born in China and came to US seeking for better education and opportunities. Being in a new environment and culture, all the mixed feelings of inquisition, depression, anxiety, and confusion have entangled us often. As photographers, we decided to use photo as the medium to express our emotion and memories. We developed different techniques and angles, shown in the photographs of cities, which have been developed out of our similar cultural backgrounds yet different perspectives from our experiences. This collaborative exhibition embraces street photography, landscape, fine art photography, documentary, astrophotography, and architectural photography. We want to share our expression of the complex emotional experiences through our lens. It is often overwhelmingly scary, lonely, and it takes up a lot of courage to find our path towards our roles and goals. Through this show, we hope we can evoke people’s awareness on how non-natives live through their everyday life in this new land.

Music at the Mansion - Frederic Chrislip @ CANO
Frederic Chrislip’s main interests have always been music and language, in nearly equal measure. A classically trained tenor, he currently focuses on self-accompanied singing to the lute, as most lutenists in Elizabethan and Jacobean England did. Accompanying himself allows a greater unity and spontaneity to the expression and pacing of the music than two performers can achieve. Bio and more info at www.fredericchrislip.com
