The Main Street Jukebox in Stroudsburg, PA held an Artist’s Reception featuring The Artwork of Michael Parsons on Saturday November 6th. A sizable crowd gathered to partake of the fantastic scenes brought to life upon the intriguing canvases. These scenes were an interesting mixture of original visions alongside depictions of images from familiar films. Not only did these later works capture the essence of their celluloid inspirations, but Mr. parson’s interpretations transcended them.
Music for the evening was provided by Rezlep and the Apparatus whose musical escapades led each listener to a wild journey into the familiar darkness of their minds. This was done through a combination of vocals, audio from films and other source material, and ecstatic gestures emphasizing many of a song’s aspects.Rezlep and the Apparatus’s performance was indeed a multimedia event with one of the medium’s forms being within each listener’s mind. You’ll find more photographs taken during the reception in The Forwardian Arts Society Main St. Jukebox 2010 Gallery at www.mysapce.com/forwardian_arts.
