On this 50th Anniversary of the march from Selma to Montgomery, we are thankful to have seen these photos taken by Matt Herron. The photos are on display at Art Rage Gallery and Herron will be giving a talk on March 25. We captured this video during a visit to the gallery last month. Loved the music (chosen by Ryan Travis for the play “Steady”) also.
Here is a sample of the talk-back segment from “Steady,” produced by Ryan Hope Travis. The clip will give you a sense of awareness for the many flexible, organic adventures involved in community theater. Also check out the golden-voiced solo by actor Kamani Grate.
Ryan’s pace is frenetic, but the quality of the work never suffers. The actor/director/professor knows how to explore and present timely topics with the right dusting of theatrical polish. His latest offering is “Steady,” an hour-long, song-dialogue-dance-dramatization of the past, present and future of Civil Rights, with a particular emphasis on the 54-mile march from Selma to Montgomery.
There were two shows for “Steady” over the weekend at The Art Rage Gallery. What made the Art Rage production unique was the poignant visual reminder of the Selma adorning the walls, thanks to the compelling documentary photographs of Matt Herron. Having photos of Dr. King, John Lewis, Doris Wilson, and others as part of the set design provided inspiration for the audience as well as the actors.
“Steady” has its next showing at Onondaga Community College on Monday.
Herron’s images will be on display at Art Rage until the end of March.
To conclude National Poetry Month members from the Underground Poetry Spot gathered for Messages of Motivation and Love at Art Rage Gallery. The event also included a open-mic segment, which included first-time poets and visiting students on Spring break.
Below watch a partial clip of Seneca’s “She’s My Medicine.”
This public art piece, located on the Hawley-Green neighborhood,is an homage to all things temporary. Torgerson’s work has also been displayed in NYC and Minneapolis. She said the wheat paste works last from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the weather. Locally we’ve seen Torgersons’s pieces in Little Italy and Midtown.
