Pasadena, CA – NewTown presents Convergences, a group exhibition that will open at the  Armory Center for the Arts in the Mezzanine Gallery on Sunday, September 12th and will be  on view through November 14, 2010. An opening reception will take place on September 11th  from 7-9 p.m. in conjunction with steve roden: in between, a 20 year survey curated by  Howard N. Fox. Convergences is curated by Richard Amromin, Artistic Director of NewTown.

In one of NewTown’s most ambitious gallery shows, eleven digital and media artists  appropriate the ubiquitous tools of their media into cutting-edge, highly personal, curiously  accessible experimental art forms. Convergences seamlessly integrates media with sculpture  and installation into an immersive experience.

The exhibition will be a multi-station journey through a labyrinth of interactions, aesthetics and technologies, from garage pillaged elegance to experimental circuitry.

The exhibition will feature work by artists; Nancy Buchanan and Ismael De Anda, Claudia  Bucher, Robert Ladislas Derr, Heidi Kumao, Katja Loher, Lisa Mann, Anne Oren, Steve  Shoffner, Rachel Siegel, Trixy Sweetvittles, and Laura Yilmaz.

NewTown is a non-profit consortium of accomplished professional artists and artist/administrators - musicians, dancers, film and video makers and visual artists - all of  whom donate their time to ensure new creative opportunities for their colleagues throughout   Southern California. Convergences is made possible by grants from The Pasadena Art  Alliance, National Endowment for the Arts, and the Pasadena Arts & Cultural Commission  and the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division.

This exhibition will be on view in the Mezzanine Gallery at the Armory at 145 North Raymond  Avenue, Pasadena, and is open Tuesday – Sunday, noon - 5 p.m. Admission is free. The  Armory is easily accessible from the Gold Line Memorial Park Station in Pasadena.
