BOSTON GALLERY EXHIBITION - July 10 - August 18, 2009

Amanda Means, Steve Miller, Gary Schneider
Deviant Specimens
July 10 - August 18, 2009

opening reception: Friday, July 10th, 6 - 8pm

Howard Yezerski Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition Deviant Specimens, featuring the work of Amanda Means, Steve Miller, and Gary Schneider, whose innovative approaches to botanical photography unveil the hidden lives of plants while provoking us to reflect upon our own experience of beauty, growth and decay. From photogram to silk-screened X-ray to pigmented ink, these works offer a new perspective of the power and vulnerability inherent in nature and in us.

Amanda Means works without a camera, placing the plants themselves in an enlarger and exposing their forms to photographic paper below. The result is a negative image; an intimate, luminous explosion of petals blanched white against a rich blackness. The densest parts of the flowers shine with almost unearthly glamour and the size of the prints accentuate their sensual elegance.

Steve Miller's images are from his recent series, "Health of the Planet." Miller traveled to Brazil and worked with a local hospital to create these high-quality digital X-rays of Amazon plants. Ghostly in their translucent, X-rayed form, the plants are caught like patients under the scrutinizing eye of the X-ray, while bold splashes of opaque, silk-screened paint alternately obscure, tussle with, and highlight their delicacy. The images, carbon prints and acrylic on canvas, marry the organic to the technical and ask the viewer to diagnose both his own state and that of the earth.

Inspired by 18th and 19th century botanical prints, Gary Schneider creates his intimate table-top still-lifes through durational exposure, sweeping a flashlight over plant contours and capturing the images in pigmented ink. Figs, leaves, chestnuts, and roses well voluminously up out of the darkness. They hover above the viewer with a dense, unsettling beauty, somewhere between that of the religious icon and the sci-fi fantastic.

(Somerville, MA) Physical Digital features sculptures and works on paper by
Rachel Gargiulo, Ted Ollier, John Pyper, and Liz Shepherd, each of whom
explores unique aspects of the structure and configurations inherent in
living digitally.

Today we find ourselves surrounded by data, meta-data, information,
references, keys, passwords, hyperlinks, applets, status bars,
transactions, and other digital ephemera. While these tools can provide a
bona fide relief this data is often an annoying companion that we are
forced to live with daily. A digital fog, sometimes navigable, sometimes
tiresomely perplexing has descended on our lives.

Gargiulo's "Chronicle I: The Pretenders" details her side of a
collaborative project where she produced a simulated love affair on the
internet. The online correspondence prior to their initial face to face
meeting is documented here. The consequences of this emotional simulation
are not yet evident.

Ollier scrutinizes the information for
which we have developed blind-spots -- the barcode, the scaleless map, the
depiction of compression, the languages that run our computers, and
unintentional digital artifacts. His meticulously accurate depictions
create abstract forms that force us to reconsider what we thought we
already knew.

Pyper explores the fiction, appearance, and ephemera found in the
backgrounds of home video game console games. His objects and prints allow
us to approach objects sought after and navigated through for countless
hours in a new and material way.

Shepherd has developed a visual vocabulary by
digitally drawing with discarded everyday illustrations. Her hushed totems
of travelers made from architectural drawings and her depictions of
hopeless characters acting out dangerous activities derives from digital
manipulations and contextualized images.

About Mobius:
Mobius (est. 1977) is a non-profit, artist-run organization, whose mission is to generate, shape and test experimental art. The members of the organization believe an effective strategy for supporting this art is to establish grounds that build relationships among fellow artists. Mobius is committed to structuring environments that foster projects incorporating a wide range of disciplines. This approach sets in motion situations where the artist's impact can be seen locally, nationally and internationally. Constructing art initiatives outside accepted frameworks and encouraging animated discourse with the public are fundamental to Mobius.

Founded by Marilyn Arsem in 1977, Mobius is known for incorporating a wide range of the visual, performing, and media arts into innovative live performance, video, installation and intermedia works. Mobius has produced hundreds of original works that have attained critical acclaim in Boston, nationally and internationally. Works created at Mobius have been presented throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia.

Mobius, Inc is funded by the Tanne Foundation; the Nonsequitur Foundation; the Boston Redevelopment Authority; the LEF Foundation; the Boston Cultural Council,a municipal agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency; the Foundation for Contemporary Arts; the Oedipus Foundation; and generous private support.

We can't do anything about the weather, but we can steer you to some great
cyber-events this month.

The Disappearing Woman
Salt of the Earth
The Refractive Kinescope
Virtual Street Corners
Cyber-Publicity for You


The Disappearing Woman
Fans of contemporary
dance won't want to miss "The Disappearing Woman," the world premiere of a new dance
work that addresses the anxieties of three women in an increasingly dispersed,
high-speed culture. The piece was created by Nell Breyer and Alissa Cardone-- leaders
in the New England dance community and organizers of Boston Cyberarts' dance
and technology events for the last several Festivals -- along with their
colleagues Lorraine Chapman and Bronwen MacArthur.
The piece is part of
the Summer Stages Dance/Baryshnikov Arts CenterResidency Project 2008. It was
commissioned and developed by Summer Stages Dance, in association with the Baryshnikov
Arts Center, The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, the Regional Dance
Development Initiative of the New England Foundation for the Arts, and Vermont
Performance Lab.
It's happening on July 11 at 7:30 at the ICA,
100 Northern Ave in Boston. For tickets visit []or
the ICA box office at 617.478.3103.
you're a dance fan, you should also check out the other events on Summer Stages
Dance's "Meet the Artist" Performance Series, taking place throughout the month
of July. Visit []for

Salt of the Earth
There's still time to see "Salt of the Earth," a biennial exhibition
organized by the New Art Collective at the Montserrat College of Art. One of
the featured artists is our friend Deb Todd Wheeler, whose work, "Biosphere" is
pictured here.
The exhibition runs through
July 24 at Montserrat College of Art, 23 Essex Street in Beverly. For more information,
click here [].

The Refractive Kinescope
The history of silent
cinema, projector devices, and a curiosity about the persistence of vision
are sources of inspiration for "The Refractive Kinescope". This
gallery installation puts the viewer in the belly of a film projector, brought
into motion by model steam locomotives and by the spectators themselves.
The locomotives transport projector bulbs illuminating over 200 celluloid
oversized film frames, selected from the silent films that form a ribbon
spooling between two reels, spanning the entire space. Moving through the
installation, the viewers, like film editors, assemble frames into the scenes.
"The Refractive
Kinescope" is on view through October 18 at the MCLA Gallery 51 Annex @ 65 Main
Street in North Adams. There will also be live dance performances in the
gallery at 6pm on July 30, August 27, and September 24. The installation was commissioned
by Downstreet Art. Kinodance Companycreated the concept; the sculptural
installation is by Dedalus Wainwright and Alla Kovgan with contributions from
Bryan Long and Gideon Weisz; and the performers include Alissa Cardone, Ingrid
Schatz and guest artist Michael Jahoda. For more information, go to

Virtual Street Corners


We're delighted to report that "Virtual Street Corners," a
digital media public art project by John Ewing,has been awarded a Challenge
Grant from the Knight Foundation, which supports innovative projects that use
technology to distribute news in local communities.
Beginning in June 2010, storefronts in Coolidge Corner in Brookline,
and Dudley Square in Roxbury will be transformed into large video screens,
providing pedestrians of each neighborhood with a portal into one another's
worlds. Running 24/7, life-size screen images and AV technology will enable
real-time chat between residents of the two neighborhoods. These portals would also
act as media centers for news collection and
dissemination. In this way, the viewing and sharing of news is brought out of
private spheres and into a public forum - a kind of virtual town hall meeting.
The project is being
organized by John Ewing, in collaboration with Carmen Montoya, Kevin Patton,
Christopher Robbins and Minotte Romulus. Those of you who have been following Boston
Cyberarts for awhile will
remember John's earlier project called "Symphony of a City," which premiered at
the 2001 Boston Cyberarts Festival. "Symphony of a City," pictured here, used
headcams, projections and streaming video to paint a portrait of Boston through
the eyes of eight different residents - with results projected on the walls of
Boston's City Hall.
We'll keep you posted
on the progress of "Virtual Street Corners" as the project gets closer.

Cyber-Publicity for You
Do you have a cyber event or exhibition coming up this fall? If so, please send
details and an image to []
by the 15th of the month preceding your event. We'll be happy to include it in
our monthly eblast, if we have space and if we get your stuff in time.
