Jackie Hoysted's Multi-Media Exhibit "INPUT OUTPUT" Opens

Jackie Hoysted's current body of work blurs the line between what is an original artwork and what is a reproduction. Comprised of paintings, ceramic sculptures, and digital photographs, Hoysted leaves the distinction of “what is the original vs. what is the copy” up to the viewer. Raising questions of authenticity, distorting perceptions of various media, and multiple manipulations of images are the prevalent themes of "INPUT OUTPUT," Hoysted's solo exhibit at The Art League Gallery, on view from October 6 - November 7, 2011.

Sunday 7/31: See me channel my inner De Niro

This Sunday July 31 at 8PM, CONQUERING THE ROSE, a feature-length independent drama will screen at the Cinema Arts Theatre in Fairfax. The film tells the story of how the death of Etta Callahan, a young dance student, affects the lives of those closest to her.
