Opening REception: Enrico Giordano: EVO.CA.TIONS [link]
Upstream Gallery, Hastings
Enrico Giordano has shown in many places from the Brooklyn Museum and the Hudson River Museum to exhibitions in Holland, Denmark and all over the US. In his first solo show at Upstream, EVO.CA.TIONS, we are enveloped in his singular grammar o color and gesture. His work "is reflective of world events, issues, the environment and childhood memories. Architecture, acoustic surroundings and mythology all play major roles" Giordano's acute sense of the importance of the viewer in completing the work comes through in the intense power of his images. In our West Gallery we will be hanging a new Upstream Group show to welcome in the Summer (at last!).

Cancelled, see update beow

Wednesday, June 1 @ 7pm
Selma: The Bridge to the Ballot [link]
The Picture House, Pelham
Followed by a discussion and Q&A with Lecia Brooks, Outreach Director of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Selma: The Bridge to the Ballot is the true story of the forgotten heroes in the fight for voting rights—the courageous students and teachers of Selma, Alabama, who stood up against injustice despite facing intimidation, arrests and violence. By organizing and marching bravely, these change-makers achieved one of the most significant victories of the civil rights era. The sacrifices of those who fought so hard for equality should never be forgotten. In the 2012 presidential election, more than 90 million eligible voters did not go to the polls. In the 18–24 age group, only six out 10 voted. And, in 2014, voter turnout dropped to a 72-year low.
