Where did all the fun people go? Well, to Redux of Course!
We found this on Pinterest today and thought it was a perfect excuse to wish a Happy Friday to all and send out a reminder that Yulia Pinkusevich’s exhibition, Reversion, ends tomorrow, Saturday, May 4th!

The Redux community LOVES music and around here, Record Store Day is an important holiday. What’s Record Store Day? Well, it’s celebration of music that began in 2007 after a group of independent record stores came together to celebrate the art of music and share their unique culture with the world. There are three stores in Charleston participating in this special event: Loco Record Shop, Monster Music, and Earshot. They’ll be hosting special in-store live performances and other promotions. Call or check each store’s sites for more information.
To share in the festivities, we thought we’d share what we’re listening to….

Please join Redux tonight, from 5:30-8:30pm, as we celebrate the unveiling of our latest exhibition, Reversion by Yulia Pinkusevich. The event will begin with an artist lecture at 5:30pm followed by a festive reception with beer, wine, music provided by DJ R Dot, and delicious treats graciously provided by Cupcake. The opening event will also feature a curated selection of new work by Redux studio artists in our Connelly Gallery.
Be sure to come hungry! One of Charleston’s favorite food trucks, Roti Rolls will be on site, serving a local, fresh menu that fuses Asian, Caribbean, Latin and Southern cuisine into their signature Roti Bread. See you there!
Redux is like it never has been before. It’s walls are painted emerald green and are filled with white chalk drawings and organic bursts of bright red paint. There’s a mystical hum in the air as Artist in Residence, Yulia Pinkusevich transforms Redux’s gallery into a site-specific installation that examines the urban city as a relic.
Imagine a world of densely layered urban dwellings. Skyscrapers and labyrinths of tunnels fill this vision. This world is disconnected from nature and unaware of its ambient environment. Humans are stacked in layers, living atop one another in soaring structures. The aggregate map of their psychology is manifested in the form of their city… and then imagine it destroyed.
This is the vision Yulia is exploring as she prepares for her latest exhibition, Reversion which opens this Friday, March 29, from 6-8pm. Redux Intern, Cameron Bolus, captured these images of her work in progress. Don’t miss your chance to meet this amazing artist and experience her compelling vision.

With all the warm summer weather Charleston has been graced with lately, it seems amicable timing to revisit and savor summer memories with Redux Studio Artist, Jen Ervin‘s solo photography exhibition, This Side of Summer, at Jericho Advisors, 207A St. Philip Street. Ervin’s work is on view now by appointment through February, 20, 2013.
Ervin’s series explores the ethereal world of childhood and was born from time spent with her children during the long, humid summer days at their family cabin in the woods and at their home in the low country. Ervin states,
While some families play board games together, we tend to pass the time by working collaboratively on photography projects.
Ervin shot these hauntingly beautiful photographs with her 1963 Polaroid Land 100 Camera and then enlarged them the digital darkroom. The final images are mysterious and poetic and all awaken a curiosity for the stories behind them.
Please join Redux tonight, January 25th from 5:30-8:30pm, for the opening reception of Spectacular by Laura Kalman. This powerful mixed-media exhibiton will be on view, January 25-March 3, 2012.
Lauren Kalman focuses on the creation, documentation, and display of wearable sculpture, electronic adornments, photographs, video, and performance that critique the fashion industry’s ability to sexualize the experience of pain, disfigurement, illness, and abnormality and to promote this sexualization as a desirable aesthetic. Kalman’s work recognizes such uncomfortable connections in visual culture among body image, media, class, and style.
Please note that some of the content of this exhibit may not be suitable for children.
