This juried show brings national and regional, established and emerging artists
together with the inspiration “What is White?”  A b.a.l.m. collaboration with
Rex Hausmann, allowed us to produce an interactive performance piece for
the opting that illustrates the concept of digging beneath the surface of a piece
of art to reveal the pinata-like nature of art as it is experienced by people of
diverse agesand backgrounds in different ways.  We hope this piece frees the
gallery viewer to experience art in a curious and engaging way.
Please see the video below of this interactive collaboration.

Two Person Art Show Invite and Independent Film Promo

October 10, 2008

You are invited to a two person art show opening entitled “Soil & Seed – Paintings & Prints by Shannon White” and “Material” Sculptures and Prints by Darin M. White. The show opening reception Friday, October 17th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the Carnegie Art & Cultural Center will include music, food and a gallery talk with the artists. In addition to claiming the title of artist, they are also married and are each dealing in different ways with issues related to the sickness and healing of their son from neuroblastoma cancer along with other aspects that they address in their work. Come and view both artists’ work and enjoy an early evening in the quaint town of Ottawa, Kansas just 30 minutes South of Lawrence on Hwy 59 (Main St.). Turn left (East) on 5th to park. We hope to see many of you!


Also, we would like to help promote a movie “And What Remains” by one b.a.l.m.’s own, Marc Havener.  Marc owns Resonate Pictures andrecently was accepted into the Heartland Film Festival and will be shown on the 18th, 22nd and 23rd of October in Indianapolis, Indiana.  The film was just recently in the Temecula International Film Festival in Los Angeles, CA with stellar reviews, and will be in the TallGrass Film Festival in Wichita, Kansas from the 26-28 of October.  Please help him promote his movie at Heartland FF by simply clicking on this link.  Please resit the urge to click on others, as the number of hits is the way that the films are rated on public interest.  Also clicking multiple times doesn’t work either.  We tried.  Thank you for supporting an independent film artist.
