Head Lines, a Sonic and Visual Installation by John Hennessey Baker, Bruce James Bales, and Trey Reis.

H E A D  L I N E S

Head Lines, a Sonic and Visual Installation created by artists John Hennessey Baker, Bruce James Bales, and Trey Reis will be on view this Saturday, December 3, at The Fitch Building Open Studios.  

The artists state:  “Information is a matter of both quality and quantity. As repetition becomes a form of justification, doctrines pervade methods of communication, simultaneously informing and directing public opinion. Truth is blurred in the textures of mass communication, and perceived somewhere between the headlines.”

New Works by Karla Conrad is a collection of photography created while the artist healed - mind, body, and spirit - from a car accident.  Described by Conrad as “A visual study of the awakening process.  With a conscious focus on the symbols Mother Earth provides along the path,” the exhibit opens with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4, at Café Barattas and remains on view through January.
