The Visual Studies Workshop is affiliated with Brookport and offers graduate study programs in you guessed it. Seems like a lot of graduates come out making books and you can buy many of these in the bookstore. Nationally reknowned photographer, Nathan Lyons used to run the workshop and he still teaches a course or two. Above are our
stills from "Cone Field" by Megan Roberts
and Raymond Ghirardo, a video installation at the Visual Studies Workshop. This show was a few
years ago so you missed it but Visual Studies presents this
sort of work all the time. n a dark room we were transported
to a field where we encountered these otherworldly cone
shaped beings with video projected on them. We sat there
staring at these cones for twenty minutes as they swirled
and changed colors and little people floated up the
sides of them.
met Scott, then the Gallery director. He organized a
show that included an outdoor projection on the ivy
covered walls (also by Megan Roberts and Raymond Ghirardo)
and an installation in the hallway downstairs of a seventies
action movie slowed way down to a druggy tempo to accompany
the opening night festivities. This was the place to
be on Gallery Night. Does Rochester still have a Gallery Night.
Tunis of Carbon Records has also helped organize two
video and sound installations here called "init"
