GARNERVILLE, N.Y. – The GARNER Arts Center is holding the GARNER Art-Music-Tech event on Friday at 6:30 p.m. featuring cellist Ashley Bathgate and M. Henry Jones’ solo exhibition “Pushing the Optical Envelope” on view in the GARNER Dye Works space.
The GARNER Art-Music-Tech Event begins at 6:30 p.m. with drinks and hors d’oeuvres available for purchase, with the performance and video projections beginning at 7:30 p.m. Jones’ survey exhibition of stroboscopic and three-dimensional work entitled “Pushing the Optical Envelope” will be open for viewing during this event starting at 6:30 p.m.
Renowned electronic cellist Bathgate will visit Garnerville for one night only for an evening of art intersecting with technology. Bathgate has been described as an “eloquent new music interpreter” by the New York Times, and someone who combines “bittersweet lyricism along with ferocious chops” by New York Magazine.
She is a member of the award-winning, internationally acclaimed sextet Bang on a Can All-Stars, as well as two chamber groups of which she is a founding member, TwoSense and Bonjour. Most recently Bathgate premiered a new cello concerto by Australian composer Kate Moore with the ASKO|Schönberg ensemble at the Gaudeamus Festival in Utrecht, Netherlands.
Bathgate studied at Bard College with Luis Garcia-Renart and the Yale University School of Music with renowned cellist Aldo Parisot.
A comprehensive screening of M. Henry Jones’s film work, curated by Jonathan Shorr, will also be presented throughout the GARNER Art-Music-Tech event Friday. Jones’ teenage animated film work, his legendary photo animation music film shorts, current and past experimental animation projects and his cult TV commercials will be projected in several GARNER Warehouse Spaces. Of particular note is Jones’ award- winning 2-minute short film “Soul City” with the Fleshtones, which is considered the fine arts precursor of the music video three years before the launch of MTV.
Tickets for this event are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors, students and military, and are available for sale on the GARNER Arts Center website or by phone at 845-947-7108.
The GARNER Arts Center is at 55 W. Railroad Ave., Garnerville, within the Garnerville arts and industrial center.
