2D & 3D Media and Video 

What does ‘Home’ mean to you?  Our home interiors create our environment and state of mind.  It is often the place we associate with our identity.  Rockland Center for the Arts invites artists to submit artwork and videos conveying ‘home’.  How does your interior home space affect your emotional and mental outlook on life?   How is your living space affected by the outside environment or does the home environment affect you in the outside world?   Is it a sanctuary, a creative space, a place of conflict, new beginnings, endings, or memories?  What does ‘home’ evoke for you?

The prefabricated house has been, and continues to be, not only a reflection on the house as a replicable object of design but also as a critical agent in the discourse of sustainability, and architectural invention.  It is a source of societal class and social structure, family communication, or the deterioration of our very core of existence. Open to all forms of 2D and 3D art for the wall.  Photography, fiber, painting, drawing, wood, glass, ceramic.  Also open to videos or documentaries for our media spaces.

Performance Poetry Workshop

The focus of this workshop will be on how we use our bodies and our physical space to improve how we perform our poetry.

Dress comfortably; don't wear accessories or jewelry that can fall off. Denim is not recommended.

The workshop is led by Anthony McPherson. Anthony McPherson (aka Tony Fearnone) is an Oklahoma boy living in New York. His biracial poetry intertwines various artforms such as breakdance, stop-motion animation, and a myriad of character impressions. You can find him repping the Nuyorican Poets Cafe (5th in the National Poetry Slam) or at the bar with his typewriter, cranking out haiku for problematic celebs. In his online series 'BS Bigots Say,' he crafts comment section responses so that all the social justice warriors, mages, paladins and rogues might equip themselves and slay trolls more beautifully.

Space is limited, so sign up in advance. The cost of this workshop is $10 in advance or $15 at the door.

Advance tickets may be bought at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/choreographing-the-words-a-performance-poetry-workshop-tickets-35121870460

There is parking at the venue; the venue is also accessible by public transit -- it's a 6-minute walk from the Sloatsburg station on NJTransit's Port Jervis line.
