The ARTS at Marks Garage - October Special Event/Exhibits
Collage Massage - 50 Curious Black & White Images
October 4 - 29
Gere is known in town for performing and producing storytelling, sometimes with shadow puppets. The root of both: the love to play with images. For decades, a few times a year, Gere occupies a bedroom, lays out magazine images, and composes ‘freestyle', letting random pictures coalesce in curious ways. This exhibit is the result of spending 4 months in a bedroom only playing with black & white images! It's been tremendously productive having time to let images unfold. Fascinating! Troubling! It is aerobics for the imagination, a dialogue with the Deep Ocean of Mind. They're snapshots from Wonderland, Vogue Surrealism, psychic landscapes, pattern poem puzzles… what does it mean?

ROOTED at the Bloomingdale's Gallery
Jen May andKat Araujo
ROOTED is a constant push and pull of the ocean, a noticeable shift in the sand that sinksdown with each arriving wave. It's the salt that heals, the formidable fire that creates anddestroys, and the wind that whispers through our skin. What does it mean to take roots as aresident? To call a place home if you've left or just arrived? ROOTED is our exploration withfinding a place to call home in Hawaii.
