    CIRCUMPLIANCE EXHIBITION

    Where
    580 E. Main street Spartanburg SC 29302 [ Map ]
    Description
    The Milliken Art Gallery will feature a mixed media installation combining visual art and music in Circumpliance. The exhibition will feature original music composition by ​Dr. Peter B. Kay paired with sculptural elements using pieces of decommissioned pianos and collaboratively installed by Kay, Kris Neely, Assistant Professor and Coordinator for Studio Art at Wofford College and Lynn Rhodes.

    The sculpted piano parts and the 88 electronic music tracks of "Circumpliance" will shape the experience in the Milliken Art Gallery. The music is made-up of 88 unique stereo tracks that comprise over four hours of unrepeated audio. Using the random playback feature on three separate 2-channel digital audio devices, the music will play continuously for the duration of the installation. Because of the exceedingly high number of permutations possible, the resulting music will almost assuredly be unique with each visit to the exhibit site.

    The exhibition will run from February 4 – March 3, 2016. Kay, Neely and Rhodes will present a Gallery Talk on February 18th at 6:00 pm in the gallery followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00 pm.

    Museo de Itallia

    Where
    100 N. Main Street, Belton [ Map ]
    Description
    In conjunction with the Anderson International Festival "Ciao, Italia!," the Belton Area Museum Association will be putting together a new exhibit entitled "Museo de Italia," a display covering all things Italian from Roman times to the present day.
    "We would love to have special items to display belonging to families in the community. Anyone can loan us vintage or antique items for the duration of the exhibit," remarked BAMA Executive Director Kathy Benson.
    BAMA is seeking Italian clothing, accessories, statues, jewelry, souvenirs, photographs and artwork, glass, war trophies, religious artifacts, cooking utensils, and architectural relics. Each item will be placed in a climate controlled environment in the museum and will be overseen by museum staff during opening hours.
    "We always hope to include pieces that have a great human interest story behind them, and sometimes what seems to the owner just an ordinary relic can make for a unique display," said Benson.
    Anyone wishing to loan pieces is encouraged to bring in items at the depot during regular business hours: Wednesday and Thursday 9 -2, Friday 9 until 4, or Saturday 9 until 1. To be included in the exhibit, submissions should be brought in by December 19 when the museum closes for the holiday break. The absolute last day to bring in items is Jan. 6 when the museum re-opens after the New Year.
    The exhibit will open with fanfare on Sunday, January 10, from 2 until 5 PM, with ancillary activities and light refreshments. Please visit the Belton Area Museum Association's Facebook page for activities scheduled throughout the exhibit run from January -March, 2016.
    Most programs and every day admission to the Depot museums which include the North End Gallery, the Ruth Drake Museum, and the SC Tennis Hall of Fame are free of charge to the public.
    Sponsorships are being sought to underwrite the costs of the exhibit and programming. For more information, please contact Mrs. Benson by phone at 864-338-7400 or by email at beltonmuseum@bellsouth.net.

    Cognitive Dissonance

    Where
    200 E St John Street Spartanburg SC 29306 [ Map ]
    Description
    Cognitive Dissonance collects [nine] artists who hold a contrary view. It does not matter how perfect the political system, how egalitarian the access for information or how baroque the manners and mores of a society. it remains imperfect. Humans are the brick with which any society is constructed and this necessary element is imperfect. People are as corrupt, superstitious and altruistic today as they were when the first man painted buffalo's on a cave in Lascaux, France.

    Society is only as perfect as the material it is forged from. Just as ceramics is only as pure as the material it is made from. Faced with this assertion, nihilism becomes seductive. The artists selected to be in Cognitive Dissonance all eschew this assumption. Their works affirm that imperfection is not only essential but in some ways glorious. As such, the lively experiment started in Rhode Island, continues today and perpetually. Anthony Merino, curator

    Opening reception: Thursday, January 28, 6-8pm

    Description
    The Dana Leong Trio is three musicians putting a modern, high-def spin on classic sounds. Dana Leong brings the cello, synth and vocals, Lex Sadler is on the bass and electronics and Val-Inc keeps it all in time from behind his turntables. It's a high-energy concert made for music-lovers, blending jazz, classical and pop to create a signature boundless sound.

    Often referred to as a "hi-def Yo-Yo Ma," Dana Leong's pioneering collage of musical styles has garnered critical acclaim and wowed audiences around the world, especially students.

    "Dana's inventive presentations on music, technology, and creativity always draw the largest, most diverse crowds from our student body, who are eager to participate in his unique, innovative, and highly interactive sessions. He gives our students an exciting modern perspective on music that no other Visiting Artist can."
