Featured Installation: Craig Colorusso

The Fenix Gallery is proud to feature a sound installation created by artist Craig Colorusso comprised of twenty speakers operating independently, each powered by the sun via solar panels. There is a different loop set to play a guitar note in each box continuously. These guitar notes collectively make a Bb chord. Because the loops are different in length, once the piece begins they continually overlap and the piece slowly evolves over time. The sounds of Sun Boxes have been described as both soothing and energizing.

Sounds boxes on view during regular gallery hours in June and July beginning June 7th from 12 until 2 p.m.

The walkway will also feature a temporary installation by glass artist Ed Pennebaker.

Sonic Images: Chris TeaL and Quintopus

Improvisatory but not esoteric, virtuosic yet unpretentious, Quintopus mixes up its own electro-pop futurism out of a little jazz, a little rock, a splash of alternative indie pop, and a good old-fashioned sense of adventure. The band formed in Rochester, NY in 2009 by drummer Chris Teal and guitarist Mike Frederick has released three albums on ears&eyes Records including “Voyage to Ornoc”, April Showers”, and “Prehistoric Beach”.

7 to 9 p.m.

Doors at 7:00, Music at 7:30, $10
