York Chang lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, and is represented by Greene Exhibitions.

  • Oliver Kellhammer is an independent artist, writer and researcher, who seeks, through his botanical interventions and social art practice, to demonstrate nature’s surprising ability to recover from damage. His recent work has focused on the psychosocial effects of climate change, cleaning up contaminated soils, reintroducing prehistoric trees to landscape damaged by industrial logging and cataloging the ecology of brownfield ecologies. He currently works as a lecturer in sustainable systems at Parsons in New York City.
     
  • In this performance I try to summarize In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

Tapping the Third Realm with Ruth Ann Anderson


Join Ruth Ann Anderson for a workshop focused on accessing your spiritual self through the creation of a handmade artist book. This one-day workshop explores a spiritual approach to art-making including use of self-reflection, transformation, and the cyclical nature of the full moon. Emphasis is on connecting the spirit and the self, artistic creation and the journal -- to access and understand a deeper level of the soul. The program begins with a group circle to welcome the four elements (air, fire, water, earth) and moon goddess to guide our intentions and witness our work. As the day progresses, participants are lead through guided meditations, meditative writing exercises, and decorating an eight-fold book. Also explores how to make more elaborate works using a box and translucent envelopes. Materials include colored pencils, rubber stamps, ephemera, and collage. Workshop concludes with a closing circle, including sharing bread and dismissing the elements and the Moon Goddess. Limited meditation supplies are available for use including Runes, the Mother Peace Tarot deck, Goddess cards, and the Druid Animal Oracle.
