Frame of Mind: Molly Harrell Redux
If you couldn’t make it to the February opening of Molly Harrell at FOM, please come by for another chance to see her sublime work! You’ll enjoy the journey through some of her most recent work (which includes her newest short film entitled “I’m Still Standing” and the book by the same name). Molly has photographed many of Columbia’s citizens, and part of the show is a collection of 100 of those photos. Who knows, your picture may be featured on the walls of Frame of Mind.
March also marks the return of performance artists, which has become a signature part of the FOM Series. This month, Workshop Theatre will be here to showcase their new play “Victor Victoria”. For your viewing pleasure, we’re excited to present the always thrilling performances from Fire in Motion,Tribe SK, and Luna Trix.
Additionally, we will have many one-of-a-kind pieces from the jewelry collection by local artisan, Caroline Hatchell.
Many thanks go to our friends at Gervais and Vine who will be providing the wine.
anastasia & FRIENDS: Kiting in the Gallery
What better month than March for the perfect time of year to go Kiting in the Gallery?
Michael Anastasion, Bohumila Augustinova, Anastasia Chernoff, Blair Gary, Paul Kaufmann, Michael Krajewski, Matthew Kramer, Michaela Pilar Brown, Alex Smith, and Roe Young are ready to give you our take on kites … some of them may dazzle, some may disturb, and others may humor.
Be sure to thank Roe Young with State Farm for sponsoring our wine and cheese this month, and Barton Dumas, owner of Cabo Fresh Taco, for graciously agreeing to provide us with some delicious food from his place, located at 1425 Sumter Street in Columbia.
S & S Art Supply: Through Two Lenses
This photographic exhibition is featuring two young fresh on-the-scene photographers, one a permanent resident, and one a foreign visitor. This exhibition explores the vastly different perspectives of one’s surrounding environment. There is the belief that the more you revisit a place, the less (or more depending on your level of observation) you notice about your surroundings. Thomas Hammond’s photographic approaches vary with …unpredictably beautiful and raw portrayals of the city and what surrounds it. Alessandra Gerevini’s photographs take a more emotionally intimate self-portraiture approach, feeling like an outsider looking in.
Thomas Hammond is a local Columbia artist that enjoys capturing the beauty of Columbia and the surrounding areas. Most of his works use everything from a simple Holga to a more sophisticated Yashica twin lense. About his process, Hammond says, “I hope to be able to demonstrate that new and progressive art can still be achieved through seemingly archaic means.”
