DESCRIPTION

This afternoon/evening of performances will be celebrating the closing of the art exhibition 2X2. Performing acoustic sets will be Miwa Gemini (brilliant Japanese/American/Johnny Cash-ish/Jacques Brel-esque) and Kevin Wellech (unique and soothing Zappa-inspired).

The name 2X2 refers to the theme size of the wall art, two feet by two feet, and the relationships between the participating artists. The artists include two couples and two pairs of siblings. It will be interesting to contemplate the similarities and differences between the pieces created by people in such close relation to each other. There may be apparent convergent or divergent evolution between people’s personal expression. We may notice the power of influence whether it is inspiration or reaction. These very close relationships represent the first, most basic level of community and how well it functions. This can then remind us of the functioning of community as a larger phenomenon.
