This artist talk will center around photography as evidence and scientific data — and how the act and process of photography is an excuse to look at, study deeply, and devote time to subjects. Using examples from Special Collections as well as images of her recent works, Melissa Penley Cormier will discuss how art and science inform and inspire each other in her own work as well as others’.
Wave Farm artist-in-residence Mollye Bendell, joins host Tom Roe, live in the WGXC Acra Studio to discuss her residency work and general artistic practice, as well as present a program of work by Baltimore artists (where Bendell is based.) The program will include Stephen Bradley’s “The Perfect Storm;” Jason Charney’s “Ausbund;” Melissa Cormier’s field recordings including peepers, cicadas, crickets, rain gutters, and wind chimes; selected poems by Suzie Doogan; Eli Ossip’s “Rockall;” and selected compositions by Timothy Nohe.
This show is similar to the weekday “WGXC Afternoon Show,” but focused on transmission art. Saturday afternoons on WGXC feature Wave Farm Artists-in-Residence, and special guests, who are interviewed on-air, present past and future projects, as well as perform live.
