Keith A. Smith

Ladies First by Keith A. Smith
VSW Gallery

Keith A. Smith is widely recognized as one of the few great living masters of the book as artwork with nearly 300 bookworks created to date. This selection focuses on his representation of women in classical painting such as his large fold book, Ladies First, and a classic women painter, Frida Kahlo.

Philip Lange  

Friday, July 1
Portraits by Philip Lange
Main Level

Since 1989, Philip Lange has worked with International Collaborative, documenting their Maasai Stoves and Solar Project work in Tanzania. On display are his 2014-15 portraits of his friends—people he has worked alongside for five years—and those who benefit from the Stoves installation project: their children.

Primary Caucus  

Friday, July 1, 6-9pm
Primary Caucus with Ray Ray Mitrano
Project Space and Lawn

What is a primary? What is a caucus? Which states have what? When? For which party? Why only two parties? Who pays for them? Why can’t I vote in mine?

Join Ray Ray for a potluck-lawn-picnic to discuss the confusing intricacies of the the presidential primary and caucus nominating process. A series of performances on alternative voting methods, and other election based questions, are scheduled to occur throughout the evening.
