Inner Spaces

668 Rte 213 Rosendale NY Century House Historical Society

“Inner Spaces” - Celebration of Art and Music, Nature and Soul Saturday - August 16, 2014 3pm – 5pm Widow Jane Mine, Snyder Estate, 668 Rte. 213, Rosendale, NY 12472 Please bring a folding chair and light jacket. Admission: $10 Inner Spaces invites you to enter the cool shadows of the cavernous Widow Jane Mine, a half-submerged remnant of the industrial age that has evolved into an underground cathedral for the arts. Inner Spaces weaves opera, new music and improvisation, spoken word, painting, photography, video and installation into a singular visceral performance. Visionary artists of Inner Spaces are united by a common thread, one that cuts across multi-cultural differences and is forged by an unwavering commitment to delve deeper into what lies below the surface. This uncompromising artistic stance moves beyond the easily accessible and reaches for the hidden and sublime. Inner Spaces is an open invitation for everyone to “take a walk into the mountain” and to share with the artists this quest for creative realization and transformation. Artistic Directors: Laurence De Seve, John Ehlis and Andrey Tamarchenko Musicians: Laurence De Seve (soprano soloist), John Ehlis (guitar), Glen Fittin (percussion) Yasuno Katsuki (euphonium) and Bill Ylitalo (woodwinds). Poetry/spoken word: akka b. and special guests. Visual artists: Alison Hoornbeek , Laura and Vladimir Klimenchenko, Judith Schafman , Andrey and Julia Tamarchenko. Inner Spaces is produced by Element 22 in collaboration with Century House Historical Society - centuryhouse.org , facebook.com/pages/The-Century-House-Historical-Society/201567976532762
