BACKYARD, ALASKA

Two years, too much ambition, and 1,200 lbs of junk in the making, this exhibit explores stories, truths, myths, dreams and disasters memorialized in our backyards

Working with found objects, archival film and audio as well as original footage and sound, Michael Walsh created an installation that reveals truths and challenges some myths that make Alaska so big.

May 21 – June 12

The MTS Gallery First Friday After Hours Salon, OPEN/CLOSE

hosts another in its series of performance events.

This 1st Friday we present You See, a unique collaboration of ideas,

film, dance and music from local Alaskan artists.

Eight artists collaborated on this multimedia performance. It consists of

five short films featuring the dancers of Momentum Dance Collective,

filming and editing by Dan Lee and an original score composed and

produced by Nick Petumenos and Ivan Night.

The films will be presented simultaneously as guests weave their way

through the gallery space, experiencing five different perspectives of

the same night.

The films collage together a story of five individuals who experience

the consequences of their entanglement with each other.

“River of Life ” ~ A One-Time Only Performance of Art in Motion!

8:00 PM (immediately following the Anchorage Press Writing Contest Reading & Awards Presentation)

A unique collaboration comes to life as two artists – one visual, one vocal – join together for a new creative expression using two different yet simultaneous mediums. Marrying live silk painting – created on-the-spot by Julia March Crocetto – with live vocalArt and improvisational music created on-the-spot by Sharon Corsaro – this artistic duo will present a one-time-only performance, never experienced in Alaska before, to produce art-in-the-moment.

This performance is the latest installment of the MTS Gallery’s ongoing series OPEN/CLOSE, the after hours First Friday Salon. This spontaneous performance carries forth the spirit of collaboration promoted throughout “Confluence/Influence,” an exhibition of Talkeetna River Valley artists curated by Crocetto currently on display at MTS Gallery through April 10. The First Friday Reception also presents a final opportunity to meet the various artists displaying their works in this group invitational show.
