TASK

Saturday April 29th 3-6pm

Come join the Greensboro community as we engage in a collaborative tasking event!  

 TASK was originally created by artist Oliver Herring, who has developed it to be a self-generating improvisational event that takes place around the world.  

 TASK participants will be provided simple materials like cardboard, tape, aluminum foil, cloth, foam and other goods as they follow a simple set of rules: write a task for someone to complete and then randomly select a task to perform yourself. You can write and take as many tasks as you would like.  

Tasks can range and possibilities are endless..."Build a castle and defend it." "Elevate yourself four feet." "Sing someone a lullaby." This is a place for a group of people to play, innovate, collaborate, test and invent with one another and their surroundings!

by Max BaynesDecember 3rd - 6thOpening Reception: December 6th, 6pm - 8pm  Interpreting sonic commotion into a visual language is the jumping-off point for my artistic practice. Be-bop jazz and other loud, abrasive music is hugely influential to the way I play with the interaction of forms. The name of this show is derived from the juxtaposition between chaotic sound and serene calm. This balance is a concept I explore in my sculptures and paintings. I find steel and paint, especially acrylic, on canvas to be the most apt media for these investigations. There are few materials that have as much potential for spontaneous attack and improvisation as welded steel. With it, I strive ...
