Feels Like a New Beginning
A Selected Group Show, featuring the diverse work of alumni of the ChaNorth residency program.
The opening reception on Friday, October 25th will include Jonathan Sims’ An Invocation of Eighty-One Skies, an interactive performance from 6:30 – 7:30pm (or longer). This invocation will invite participants to interact with abstract form, themselves, and each other within a newly emerging and evolving form of divination called Eighty-One Skies. Jonathan Sims will facilitate an introduction to this cleromantic system, which uses dice to generate random numbers and translates them into universal themes.
