BRICK ALLEY BLOCK PARTY
Saturday, September 23, 2017 - 6:30pm doors
Adults $12, Seniors/Student/Military $10
Tickets on Sale August 23rd at 9AM

Back for a third year, this party is quickly becoming one of the most talked about in Rockland County. Spend an evening immersed in a world of virtual reality performance, site specific dance, art installations, body painting, food and drink spread throughout three connecting industrial spaces and culminating in a sundown dj set in a 19th century alleyway. Brick Alley Block Party celebrates the opening of GARNER’s 2017 – 2018 Season and the one-year anniversary of the on-site craft brewery, Industrial Arts Brewing Company. At this year’s event, GARNER Arts Center welcomes the premiere of Virtual Reality performance, Mechanica, an exploration of GARNER Arts Center as told through a Virtual World.

Mechanica is an evening-length work created in collaboration between visual artist Leo Castaneda and musician Molly Joyce. Featuring projections of Castaneda's virtual environments along with a live musical performance by Joyce on her vintage toy organ, the work will explore the deep yet perhaps ambiguous history and future of GARNER Arts Center that can leave much up to one's imagination. Mechanica address GARNER Arts Center’s history as a textile mill, reflected in Castaneda's virtual animations which fall between fashion and sculpture, questioning exactly what can be considered what and at what point do the facets of the textile mill become something to be preserved and relished rather than disregarded. Lasting around 30 minutes, the work will be performed throughout the evening in GARNER Arts Center’s stunning 8,000 sq ft Dye Works Warehouse space.

This event is sponsored by; Rockland County Tourism, Industrial Arts Brewing Company, Garnerville Arts & Industrial Center. Thank you to Arts Center/South Florida for the help in creating Mechanica.


AUTUMN ELECTRONIX FESTIVAL
Saturday, October 21, 2017

ANNIHILVS POWER ELECTRONIX proudly joins forces with the Garner Arts Center for the GARNER ARTS AUTUMN ELECTRONIX FESTIVAL, a specially-curated selection of seven live acts representing many varied facets of electronic music. Annihilvs is an independent underground record label founded by Rockland County native Lee M. Bartow in the Summer of 1997. Specializing in a broad spectrum of obscure forms of music, the label has since expanded to include several artists from around the globe. A great many live events in New York, and beyond, have been organized under the label's aegis, featuring acts reflecting many facets of the international underground music community. In August 2017, the label celebrates its twentieth anniversary.

Special guests _Floor_Funktion and Pope Joan II, from Nyack DJ collective {decompress} provide interludes between performances, while Bartow himself will open the event in his DJ incarnation Le Bourreau. Combined with these live performances, we also present WORLDS WITHIN SHADOWS, an exhibition of visual art curated by Nyack-based photographer, performance artist, and videographer Gretchen Heinel.

This program is sponsored, in part, by Rockland County Tourism and the Garnerville Arts & Industrial Center.
