On view November at the Artisphere

Through Sunday, November 4th 
Beyond the Parking Lot will motivate the viewer to think how we have used and deserted the land that surrounds us in our everyday life through contemporary landscapes by artists asking the question, "where do we go from here?"

Town Hall Video Wall - An ongoing series of animations dealing with themes of isolation, suburbia, and Western culture. The animations not only speak about the relationships between humans and nature, but also about the way humans relate with each other. The work is a collaboration that is carried out over the internet, generated through email and digital storyboards. 

Jassie Rios + Renee Van Der Stelt: Drawing The Found Line
Artists Jassie Rios and Renee van der Stelt collaborate to produce a series of site-generated drawings. The intention is to find and follow lines of sound, movement, light and space through traditional drawing strategies as well as through the use of audio and video equipment. Visit for the onsite residency hours.

Through Sunday, November 11th 

Artisphere selected local artist Beth Baldwin for a six month artist-in-residency from May through November 2012.

Patrons are welcome and encouraged to walk through her studio, watch her work and ask questions during her residency hours: Wednesdays-Fridays from 6pm-10pm and Saturdays from Noon-6pm. Baldwin will also be selling her unique creations.

Orphan, an auditory sculpture experimenting in sound localization, is a fully three-dimensional listening environment that allows the listener to engage with recorded sound in a much more dynamic and lifelike manner. Each of the nine speakers plays sounds that are unique to each speaker; but together they become a spherical and harmonious chorus, a sublime aural experience.
