Good and Plenty at School 33 Arts Center

Featuring: Darcie Book, Amy Hughes Braden, Estee Fox, Matt Hollis and Stefanie Williams. Curated by Cynthia Connolly

Most of us grew up with color televisions, monitors, and mobile phones, whose screens emanate a myriad of colors seemingly not replicable in the natural world. Using them daily, how much do these devices influence us? Are these exhibiting artists in GOOD AND PLENTY trying to recreate the luminosity and hue from these glowing beacons? Through the medium of pigments, paints, and manufactured objects used by these exhibiting artists, take the time to consider and witness the slow shift of our perceived color palette.

Opening reception: Friday, September 9

Making Space at Olly Olly Gallery

Olly Olly, an alternative art space in Fairfax, VA, is pleased to present Making Space, co-curated by Anne Smith. Making Space is an exhibition of artists whose work investigates an awareness of built space, especially the unexpected peculiarities found in rigid structures of architecture and infrastructure. Built structures able to be measured and marked on a map or blueprint become more complex and open-ended in the work of these artists. A wall, a window, a road, or a curb are shown as more than a nameable quantity, but contain tension, uncertainty, humor, and wonder. The artists in Making Space call attention to these flexibilities of built space, inserting ambiguity into structure. On Saturday, July 23, 2016, from 7pm to 10pm, spend an evening with the artists: Cynthia Connolly, Margo Elsayd, Anne Smith, Diane Szczepaniak, Elena Volkova

Opening reception: Saturday, July 23 7-10pm

FERMATA at Artisphere. Curated by Ryan Holladay, Cynthia Connolly, and Hayes Holladay.

Fermata is Artisphere's first exhibition dedicated entirely to sound and the largest of its kind in the region to date. Featuring nearly 30 artists, Fermata takes an expansive approach and is a celebration of individuals using sound in a variety of disciplines, from composer Ryuichi Sakamoto to NASA Kepler scientist Lucianne Walkowicz.

Centered around a wall of speakers designed by sound artist John Henry Blatter that will be used by all participants in the show, Fermata will unfold in three parts, or movements, each featuring a different combination of six to ten sound works that will cycle continuously for a month. Each Movement will play on a continuous loop with no two works playing simultaneously in the gallery; each piece will utilize every functioning speaker on the wall, allowing playback of multi-channel audio works. Fermata will conclude with Coda, a collaboration with Transformer as part of their annual Exercises program for emerging artists.

Rural Studio Benefit Opening at the Darryl Carter Boutique

I attended Auburn University's Rural Studio in 2002/03. Rural Studio is an undergraduate program of the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture at Auburn University. Since 1993, working within one of the poorest county's in Alabama, the program directs students to design and build projects that will help that immediate community. This is a benefit for homes to be built within the Black Belt region of Alabama, where the Rural Studio resides. The Rural Studio has designed a housing prototype that enables low income families to break the cycle of poverty. One house= $20,000. Please help in contributing so the Rural Studio can built eight $20,000 houses this spring. I will be exhibiting and selling photographs and postcards from my time in Alabama as part of this benefit.

This evening, if you donate $30-$50 at the door, you will have access to the benefit and yummy snacks and drinks. Please come if you can!! My project at the Rural Studio is here (the Rural Studio site is under construction and my project does not appear on that site at this time).

The Darryl Carter Boutique is located at 1320 9th Street NW, Washington, DC 20001 (at 9th and O NW). The opening is at 6:30PM.

ALPTRAUM! at Green Papaya Art Projects

ALPTRAUM! (translated from German as "nightmare") is a comprehensive group exhibition of small to medium sized works on paper in a variety of disciplines (painting, drawing, screen prints, photography, collage) by an international mix of nearly 100 artists.

Developed by artists Marcus Sendlinger (Berlin) and Jay Stuckey (Los Angeles), and co-curated by Victoria Reis of Transformer (WDC) and Richard Priestly of Cell Project Space (London), ALPTRAUM! features work by twenty DC based artists from Transformer's FlatFile program, along with twenty artists from each of the other participating host cities. ALPTRAUM! Organizer Marcus Sendlinger states:

ALPTRAUM! is an artist led project. It is a model which utilizes global communication between localized artist hubs & clusters to form an international grouping with the intent of opening dialogue across borders and cultures in order to delve into the stuff and mind murk that is either collectively shared or completely random and unrelated, all within the syndrome of 'The Nightmare'. Each artist draws on their own personal experience in order to visualize anxieties that take them beyond everyday dreams.

ALPTRAUM! launched at Transformer in December 2010 and has been traveling internationally ever since.

American University Mary Graydon Center, Room 5

The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program at American University will screen "From the Back of the Room" —a film about how hardcore punk took shape in Washington, D.C. In the 80s. American hardcore punk blossomed in Washington, D.C. Women, however, did not gain much visibility until Bikini Kill and Riot Grrrl appeared in the 90s. From the Back of the Room features interviews with women from Naked Aggression, Submission Hold, Look Back and Laugh, Sick Fix, and Detestation, who address issues faced by women in under-ground music, including motherhood, beauty ideals, race and sexual violence. A panel discussion with the film's director Amy Oden will follow with Cynthia Connolly, photographer, curator and author of Banned in DC, and Katy Otto, a consultant, a drummer and presently the Communications Director of Service Women's Action Network. Tickets are FREE with AU I.D. or $5.00 for non-AU students/staff/faculty.

Shaw Community Library

I will be in a panel talking about the club/art venue I booked in from 1986- 1992 called d.c. space. d.c. space was the place for punk, new wave, performance art, free jazz, poetry, independent films and all things avant-garde from '77 to '91 at 7th & E Streets, NW. The bar/restaurant was a center for innovative art and artists; twenty years later, numerous musicians and fans still say its closing has left an unfilled hole. space's owner/founder artist Bill Warrell and the club's booker Cynthia Connolly, manager Jean Homza, and 930 Club's booker, Lisa White, as well as other key players will be on hand to tell us what was really happening from the inside. Great music, live footage, still photos, old calendars, and other first hand accounts will remind those who were there and educate those who weren't: space was the place. Wednesday, October 12th at 7pm at the Shaw Community Library at 7th and R Streets, NW Washington, DC
