WORK Biennial 2020
Jan. 29

The Herndon Gallery at Antioch College is pleased to welcome you to the opening reception of WORKS Biennial 2020; a group exhibition featuring the creative vocations and avocations of the staff and faculty of Antioch College.

The Opening Reception of this immersive exhibition will take place on January 29th, and will include the following artists:

Brooke Bryan; who will be speaking about her political activism of female quilt making + the Mueller report.

Mary Ann Davis; who will be reading poems from her first full-length collection ‘Sublunary’.

Gariot Louima; who will be reading a collection of short stories titled ‘Sound and Other Works’.

Robin Littell; who will be reading from her chapbook ‘Flight’ (2020), including some of her new work. Poetry and flash fiction; cover art illustrated by Forest Bright.

Ron Napoli; who will be performing “Third Pose: A Song” from “The Four Poses” (1992) by Ron Napoli.

Teofilo Espada-Brignoni; who will be performing three pieces on saxophone; 1) Old Letters – a musical reflection about memory in ¾ time. A Jazz Waltz. 2) Meet Me in Ohio – a response to a tune and CD by Bud Freeman, titled ‘Meet Me in San Juan’. This piece combines elements of Bud Freeman’s music with elements of Puerto Rican music, yet played with more contemporary rhythms. 3) Les Promenades de Maldoror – a piece imagining how the protagonist of the poems by Lautreamont would walk at night in a city.

These performances will take place in the Herndon Gallery in the South Hall, from 4 pm until 6 pm. Attendance is free and open to the public.
