“Structures: Glass,” the June 2016 show at the Washington Street gallery, presents a sound installation and drawings by the local sound artist and composer, Morgan Evans-Weiler. The opening is June 4, 8–11 pm, at 321 Washington St., Somerville.
The sound installation features resonating panes of glass, with drawings inspired by the various resonant characteristics of each piece of glass. There will be performances throughout the month with various instruments placed alongside the installation, creating relational juxtopositions of pitch, noise, time and space.
Performance dates begin at the opening, June 4, with Morgan Evans-Weiler on violin and Vic Rawlings on electronics. On June 18, 2-4 pm, is a performance of “Structures,” a composition for strings and the installation, featuring Laura Cetilia on cello and David Michael Curry on viola.
The gallery is open Saturdays, 12-4 pm, from June 4 to 28. For more information, please contact the artist at firstname.lastname@example.org
