  • Composer Kubilay Üner offers a reactive experience with a live presentation of a new composition made in response to the exhibition Angie Bray: Shhhh. The performance will be interspersed with conversation between Üner and Bray.

  • Kathryn Andrews gets some of her best ideas driving around Los Angeles, where the visual contradictions she sees every day find their way into her art. Andrews, who is originally from Mobile, Alabama, is known for the commonplace objects she fabricates from highly polished and painted metal, into which she incorporates inexpensive or borrowed finds, including rented Hollywood props.

  • Angie Bray is something of a Renaissance woman with a wide range of artistic abilities and interests encouraged and enriched by her upbringing and her liberal arts education. She spent her childhood in the countryside outside Philadelphia where she attended a girls’ school that emphasized music, drama, and art in addition to academics. She studied at La Sorbonne in Paris and earned a Bachelor of Arts from Sarah Lawrence College in New York, followed by a Masters in Education from Harvard University in Massachusetts.

Robert Crosson, Signs/ & Signals: The Daybooks of Robert Crosson

 

Edited by Guy Bennett and Paul Vangelisti, with an introduction by Guy Bennett
Co-published with The Archive for New Poetry, Mandeville Special Collections Library, University of California, San Diego

 

…what I was (am) doing in Daybook, is exactly what you say: “publishing” my own book, in pencil…which is not to say it’s hot-stuff, but what I daily do to make “sense” of what’s otherwise- “making a living”: which is what we all do anyway – . I guess that’s maybe (all) any poet can do?

 

Born in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania in 1929, Robert Crosson moved to California in 1944. He eventually settled in Los Angeles where he spent most of his life working as a carpenter, house painter, and professional actor. Crosson authored five volumes of poetry – Geographies, Abandoned Latitudes (with John Thomas and Paul Vangelisti), Calliope, The Blue Soprano, The Day Sam Goldwyn Stepped off the Train – and the chapbook In The Æthers of the Amazon. Crosson died in 2001.
