Exhibition Reception – City Block
Historic Reynolds Avenue Fire Station
2006 Reynolds Avenue, North Charleston, SC 29405
Join us for an evening reception in honor of an exhibition of new work by local sculptor and painter Fletcher Williams III. Inspired by the North Charleston cityscape, City Block features three-dimensional works made from reclaimed wood, automotive paints, and various building materials that symbolize the deconstruction and transformation of local neighborhoods. Musical entertainment provided by Black Dave. Refreshments will be served.
LISTEN to Outworld Spiral, an original composition by Philip Lipton created to accompany the works in the exhibition.
Outworld Spiral, for soprano and bass clarinets, is an interpretation of Fletcher’s exhibition, particularly his sculpture, Beyond the Proper There are Dreams To Catch, which yearns for the sky and spirals upward like a strand of DNA. Circular breathing enables me to create long lines of sound patterns which slowly change shape over time. In the beginning and closing sections of Outworld Spiral, the rhythm fades in and away creating a unique feeling of momentum. The middle section, comprised of single tones, melts into each other, illuminating the soprano improvisation and rebuilding the rhythmic juxtapositions. The Bass clarinet wraps up the work and brings the texture of sounds to a new level of saturation.
Exhibition viewing times: April 28-June 3, Tue./Thu./Fri./Sat. 11:00am-4:00pm, Wed. 11:00am-7:00pm
