A Free Community Event featuring Fine Art, Performances and Other Surprises
It's not everyday that you can experience fine art, film, music and a bit of theatre all in one place, but The Linda makes it all possible at its first ever Pop-Up Gallery Night. This free, one-of-a-kind arts celebration features an assortment of New York-based and regionally-acclaimed artists, and serves up a smorgasbord of visual art, music and eclectic imagery styles that will stimulate the imagination and fuel your inner critic.
Please join us and witness the transformation of The Linda from intimate auditorium space to fine art gallery. Guests will be treated to an evening of two and three dimensional fine art, original films, non-traditional performances and other unexpected expressions of creativity.
Created to connect the arts to the greater community, Pop-Up Gallery Night is a special event curated by Albany native and fine art photographer Jason Spiro. A DJ, spinning classics from all genres, will provide the backdrop for the evening; complimentary refreshments will be served and a cash bar will be available.
Ms. Herrmann works primarily in painting, creating original, one of a
kind acrylics, oils, watercolors and encaustics. Her work is heavily
influenced by the growth and decay cycles of nature, and her renderings reflect a combination of both representation and abstraction. As a result, repetitious forms and patterns start to emerge, creating unique, playful landscapes.
Maura Jasper is a conceptual multi-media artist whose work
investigates how pop cultures and histories shape and inform identity.
She has exhibited and screened work widely in the United States and
overseas at venues such as Artist's Space, Threadwaxing Space, the
Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, and the Centre for
Contemporary Images in Geneva. She is probably best known for her
work as a co-founder of Punk Rock Aerobics, the DIY workout and her
album art for Dinosaur Jr. She is currently an Assistant Professor of
Electronic Media at Ball State University, where she teaches video
with an emphasis on time based intermedia practices.
