Join us for an intimate musical evening, celebrating our outgoing exhibition IN A DREAM YOU SAW A WAY TO SURVIVE AND YOU WERE FULL OF JOY. Seylon Stills will warm up the crowd, followed by Tongue in the Mind. Space is limited and advance registration is highly encouraged.

Seylon Stills is a composer, artist and musical performer, heavily influenced by the natural beauty of her birthplace, the island of Sri Lanka. Her live performances and installations are interactive creations that include nature-inspired soundscapes and immersive sonic textures with contributions from members of the audience. Her performances, installations, and artist talks have been seen and heard at The University of New Mexico, the Albuquerque Museum, the Cole Art Center, Currents New Media Festival, UTOPiAfest, and Stephen F. Austin State University.

Juliana Huxtable & Joe Heffernan have been performing and playing together since 2013.

Look out for a new release in 2023.
