CALEB TEICHER & COMPANY,
A COLLABORATION WITH CONRAD TAO
Friday, May 18, 2018 at 7:30pm

Baruch Performing Arts Center presents a Work-in-Progress, More Forever, by Caleb Teicher & Company, a collaboration with Conrad Tao, at Baruch Performing Arts Center, 55 Lexington Avenue (25th Street between Third and Lexington Avenues), NYC on Friday, May 18, 2018 at 7:30pm. Tickets are ( for students) and are available at www.baruch.cuny.edu/bpac.

Caleb Teicher & Company continues their investigation of American dance traditions on a stage filled with a thin layer of sand. Using vernacular jazz, tap dance, and Lindy Hop with a new contemporary score for piano and electronics by Conrad Tao, this work-in-process sonic journey will brush away the fine line between movement and music and expand the expressive capacity of American music and dance. Teicher is joined by six additional dancers: Nathan Bugh, Evita Arce, Byron Tittle, Gabriel Winns Ortiz, Brittany DeStefano, and Macy Sullivan, with Tao providing music at the piano with electronics. The evening includes a discussion between Tao and Teicher about their collaboration and creative process.

CT&Co's signature elements of musicality, humor, and warmth have won the hearts of audiences by connecting to America's rich and diverse physical heritage, whether tap dancing to Bach or swing dancing to Chet Baker, playing patty-cake to Sufjan Stevens or ballroom dancing to Ella Fitzgerald. Past engagements include Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival's Inside/Out Series, Gibney Dance, Queens College/Kupferberg Center for the Arts (through CUNY Dance Initiative), The Yard on Martha's Vineyard, LaMaMa Experimental Theater Club, and the American Tap Dance Foundation, among others.

"He's engaging, and yet you watch him with perpetual curiosity."

Later that year, Tao was named a Gilmore Young Artist, an honor awarded every two years highlighting the most promising American pianists of the new generation. In May of 2012, he was awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant.
 
Tao's career as composer has garnered an eight consecutive ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Awards and the Carlos Surinach Prize from BMI.

Commissioned in observance of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the work was described by the New York Times as "shapely and powerful." Most recently, the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia commissioned a new work for piano, orchestra, and electronics, An Adjustment, which received its premiere in September 2015 with Tao at the piano. The Philadelphia Inquirer declared the piece abundant in "compositional magic," a "most imaginative [integration of] spiritual post-Romanticism and '90s club music."

Kathy Burks Theatre of Puppetry Arts’ Hansel and Gretel

Kathy Burks Theatre of Puppetry Arts’ Hansel and Gretel
Event on 2016-04-02 19:30:00
Recommended for ages 4 and up
You don’t need a prince and princess for your heroes to live happily ever after. When two children get lost in an enchanted forest, they must use all their powers of imagination to save them from the crafty old woman in the candy house and lead them back to their loving parents. The music of Engelbert Humperdinck brings an inventive theatricality to the retelling of this classic fairy tale. Another feast for the eyes and ears from Master Puppeteers.

Agata Olek (Flickr). Photographed during my interview with her regarding her 100% Acrylic Art Guards public installation during the annual Art Under the Bridge Festival in 2009.

Her wonderfully inspiring portfolio is available at www.agataolek.com. She also has a blog at www.agataolek.com/blog

Agata Olek Biography. The SPLAT! of colors hits you in the face, often clashing so ostentatiously that it instantly tunes you into the presence of severely cheeky humor. A moment later the fatigue of labor creeps into your fingers as a coal miner’s work ethic becomes apparent. Hundreds of miles of crocheted, weaved, and often recycled materials are the fabric from which the wild and occasionally wearable structures of her fantasylands are born.

Olek was born Agata Oleksiak in Poland and graduated from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poland with a degree in cultural studies. In New York, she rediscovered her ability to crochet and since then she has started her crocheted journey/madness.

Resume sniffers may be pleased to know Olek’s work has been presented in galleries from Brooklyn to Istanbul to Venice and Brazil, featured in "The New York Times", "Fiberarts Magazine", "The Village Voice", and "Washington Post" and drags a tail of dance performance sets and costumes too numerous to mention.

Olek received the Ruth Mellon Award for Sculpture, was selected for 2005 residency program at Sculpture Space, 2009 residency in Instituto Sacatar in Brazil, and is a winner of apex art gallery commercial competition. Olek was an artist in an independent collective exhibition, "Waterways," during the 49th Venice Biennale. She was also a featured artist in "Two Continents Beyond," at the 9th International Istanbul Biennale.

Olek herself however can be found in her Greenpoint studio with a bottle of spiced Polish vodka and a hand rolled cigarette aggressively re-weaving the world as she sees.

13th annual D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival® (Sept 25 to Sept 27, 2009)
www.dumboartfestival.org/press_release.html

The three-day multi-site neighborhood-wide event is a one-of-a-kind art happening: where serendipity meets the haphazard and where the unpredictable, spontaneous and downright weird thrive. The now teenage D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival® presents touchable, accessible, and interactive art, on a scale that makes it the nation’s largest urban forum for experimental art.

Art Under the Bridge is an opportunity for young artists to use any medium imaginable to create temporary projects on-the-spot everywhere and anywhere, completely transforming the Dumbo section of Brooklyn, New York, into a vibrant platform for self-expression. In addition to the 80+ projects throughout the historical post-industrial waterfront span, visitors can tour local artists’ studios or check out the indoor video_dumbo, a non-stop program of cutting-edge video art from New York City and around the world.

The Dumbo Arts Center (DAC) has been the exclusive producer of the D.U.M.B.O Art Under the Bridge Festival® since 1997. DAC is a big impact, small non-profit, that in addition to its year-round gallery exhibitions, is committed to preserving Dumbo as a site in New York City where emerging visual artists can experiment in the public domain, while having unprecedented freedom and access to normally off-limit locations.

The Traverse City Wine & Art Festival will take place on Saturday August 22 from 5-10 PM at the Grand Traverse Commons in front of Building 50 on the lawn under the big tent.

The inaugural festival is being organized in order to create a landmark celebration of the wine, food and culture of northwest lower Michigan and Michigan’s wine coast for years to come. The evening will feature wines from 22 wineries from the Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas and a selection of Traverse City and Leelanau restaurants serving food & desserts. Unlike many other wine festivals which function primarily as tasting events, the Traverse City Wine & Art Festival will feature full pours of area wines.

How much to charge for photography at arts festivals?

Question by NettyLouWho?: How much to charge for photography at arts festivals?
I do photography and would like to display it at our local arts festival. (if I make it in time) My brother makes custom frames for me and the sizes vary. I’m just curious as to pricing. I I have no idea what to charge for my work. Any ideas would be great. Thanks. I live in Utah and will also try to make the arts festival in Salt Lake City if at all possible. But of course I am clueless. Thanks again.

Best answer:

Answer by St N
Do not charge less than your cost for materials, including the frames. An unframed 8 x 10, mounted, should go for at least .
