Robin Botie, Reframing Death and Grieving
Photoshop offers intriguing “Tools” to work with for those whose lives are in turmoil or struck by loss: a Patch Tool, a Dodge Tool, a Path Selection Tool, an Add-Anchor Tool, a Magic Wand, Magic Eraser, Clone Stamp, …and a Healing Brush. The possibilities for change and control are endless. Taking up photography after the death of her daughter five years ago, Robin Botie uses the tools in Photoshop to reframe common views of death, explore creative ways to grieve, and redefine her life. www.robinbotie.com

The Ink Shop 330 E State St, 2nd floor of CSMA building
A collaborative, multimedia installation featuring musician Billy Cote, writer Jon Frankel and artist Craig Mains, exhibiting 6 groups of 6 linked works. The groups transition from image to music to text, each piece a reaction to the one immediately preceding it, and the cycle repeats. Each group begins a new pattern: two groups start with music, two with poetry and two with print, functioning as an interdisciplinary mix of broken telephone and exquisite corpse.
