JAMES LEONARD, THE TENT OF CASUALLY OBSERVED PHENOLOGIES



THE TENT OF CASUALLY OBSERVED PHENOLOGIES

Come see the tent & have a reading with artist James Leonard in front of ADA gallery
(or inside in case of rain)

It can be hard to face a future we fear. Divination has been used by cultures throughout the world to help people navigate difficult futures. Artist James Leonard adapted Tarot cards to help others process what he calls “overwhelming climate anxiety.”

This summer he’s traveling the country, making one-day stops to give climate change divinatory readings inside a special, hand-sewn tent. The tent’s exterior looks like a cross between a post-apocalyptic wigwam and a children’s blanket fort. The rainbow interior is made of brightly colored recycled clothing. Detailed tea-colored ink paintings of different plant and animal species—each reportedly affected by climate change are pinned to the outside.

James Leonard is an internationally exhibited artist based in Brooklyn, NY. He recently finished a 2016 artist residency at MASS MoCA. In 2015, he was artist-in-residence at the Boston Center for the Arts. On July 23 from noon – 6 pm, Leonard will be in his tent in front of ada gallery offering free climate change readings.

This project invites the general public to consider their own rapidly changing landscapes. Readings last approximately 15 minutes each, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Rachel Hayes' STRAIGHT TIPSY exhibit opens Sept. 4, 2015 at ADA gallery in Richmond, Va.

Rachel Hayes is a VCU MFA Painting grad (2006) living at the moment in Roswell, NM. and has shown at ADA since 2005.

Rachel will be showing new works created while at the Roswell Residency during the past year.
Intensely colorful, hand sewn, collaged fabric and plastic are the hallmarks of Rachel Hayes' work.
 WIth a devotion to these materials and her process, this fiber-based sculptor/painter touches on
 traditional craftwork such as quilting and stained glass while radiating an unbridled play of light
 created by the funky sewn fusion of these materials and her own gleeful spirit.
