February Exhibit, “for a moment, we exist together, for a moment”
Opening Friday, February 3, from 5-7pm, artist talks at 6pm
“Glaciers sing. Blueberries listen. Bodies long to/for touch. “for a moment, we exist together, for a moment” is a series of sensory-based works examining communication, systems of care, semiotic beings, grief, and the aesthetics of accessibility within art and non-art spaces. Visitors are invited to participate and engage with the work through multiple entry points as a form of reciprocity. Many pieces are informed by and made in collaboration with artists, writers, musicians, researchers, and wayfarers.” – Katie Ione Craney

Friday, February 17th, Broadcast at 7pm: Dreamy rock trio The Wet Spots hit the Homer music scene in summer 2022 and the dance floor hasn’t been the same since. Singer/Guitarist Charles Aguliar, Drummer Seussa Kandror, and Bassist/Multi-instrumentalist Dylan Smith play an eclectic mix of eerie dance tunes fused with undertones of No Wave and Psychedelic Blues Rock.
