A Fine Pairing: Rosa Leff and Kelly Walker Exhibition

The exhibition "A Fine Pairing" provides insight into the works of Rosa Leff and Kelly Walker. The analogy of their work being like a fine wine pairing with cheese or chocolate suggests a harmonious and complementary relationship on the gallery walls. The unifying theme in both of their artworks is the celebration of the city. The details the artists explore in their work encourage you to look closely! The exhibition description ends with a hopeful note, encouraging viewers to appreciate the tiny cut details in Leff's work and recognize that these details contribute to making city living an enriching experience. 

Contact Improvisation: Open Jam

Explore the fundamentals of Contact Improvisation, an open-ended form of dance that embraces the kinesthetic possibilities of bodies moving through contact. Build skills through exploring principles of weight sharing, embodied listening, and collaborative movement. Each session will be organized into two parts. The first half of each session will focus on a particular skill or principle. The second half of the session will move into an open jam (with some guidance), in which participants are able to integrate what they've been learning. All levels of experience are welcome.
