Card for the performance designed by Ann Tracy

On Friday November 21st, at 7 pm, a mixed media experimental event will be performed at Asylum Gallery, 1719 25th St., (behind the gray fence at 25th & R Sts.) Sacramento CA 95816. The performance featuring improvisational digital music by Mike Crain and an improvisational performance by Ann Tracy and Tim Dougherty was planned by Tracy, the coordinator of the Digital Art and Photography exhibit at the gallery, as a vital part of the exhibition. Doors to the gallery will open at 6:45 pm that evening and admission is on a sliding scale according to income.

The evening will feature a semi-improvisational performance piece using text created by Tracy, performed by her and Dougherty and with improvisational music by Crain. Crain will also present more improvisational music that night. This performance is considered Fluxus in that there will be random repetition of both text and movement, which are based on pedestrian, everyday movements not dance movements.

Crain is an award-winning composer, percussionist and college professor in Sacramento. His compositions have been performed in New York, at the Festival of New American Music in Sacramento, and the “Day of Percussion” at California State University Sacramento and Southern Oregon University, Ashland. Recently, a composition for chamber ensemble trio, Riptide, was performed by SyZyGy as part of the New Music Concert Series in Ashland. He has performed in New York, Oregon, Southern California, and in the greater Bay Area at the Otherminds Festival (VI and VII), the Festival of New American Music, the Viola Festival, the John Cage MusiCircus at Fort Mason San Francisco, the Mondavi Performing Arts Center, the San Francisco Asian Art Museum, and Carnegie Hall.

Tim Dougherty is an actor, model, dance instructor and general bon vivant who lives in the Sierra Foothills. He has appeared with Beyond the Proscenium Productions, Foothill Theatre Company, Theatre El Dorado and many other theatre companies in Northern California. Among his performance credits is Dancing with Desire at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. He has a great interest in photography, avant-garde art and travel.

Ann Tracy is an actor, playwright, director, writer and artist. As the founding artistic director of Beyond the Proscenium Productions in 1994, she has directed many original works and regional premieres. She has written 9 scripts, 7 of which have been produced in California. She is a member of the Society of Stage Directors and Choreographers, alumnae of the Directors Lab West and a member of the Dramatists Guild. In addition to theatre work in Northern California, her film credits include George B (Sundance Film Festival), Anna’s Cross (post-production) and Capital Women (PCS Festival October 2007). She is shooting the independent short feature Bitter/Sweet in December.

The work from the ten artists from New York to California accepted into the National Juried Digital Art & Photography Exhibit will be on display until December 21st. Normal gallery hours are 1 to 5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. A Second Saturday reception is planned for December 13th from 6 to 9 pm.

The artists in this exhibit are Curtis Bond, Robyn Desposito, Jack Hastings, Jodie Hooker, Jim Klein, Develyn Marshall, Josh McGrath, Terry Oliver, Chris Schiller & Michael Smith. While the majority of artists are from the Sacramento region, there will be work from Redding, CA; Austin, Texas and Sunnyside, New York.
