MORE LIKE AN OCEAN: Windshowers by Paul Richardson & Mary Rothlisberger

Spring = kites, right? Correct. Now that we all agree, let's celebrate kites, pinwheels, mobiles, and other works that shift and sway. We've got an art opening this Friday, April 5th that we have been super excited about for a long while. Our space is being decked out with bird mobiles, kites, and poster-sized drawings. This project is called MORE LIKE AN OCEAN: Windshowers by Paul Richardson & Mary Rothlisberger! Come early for an edition of kite coloring books with colored pencils! This has to be fun. Plus, local favorite Ryley Walker will lull us into an atmospheric daze with his guitar pickin' magic.

saki is thrilled to present MORE LIKE AN OCEAN: Windshowers by Paul Richardson and Mary Rothlisberger.

MORE LIKE AN OCEAN is a series of collaborative works that shift and sway, an atmospheric celebration of the ether and the other. Kites, mobiles, pinwheels, patchworks, and paintings respond to the way we move in and without space and time. When there is nowhere to go but up, kites are the flying machines that take off landing. So spin out like a spinnaker, two-step with a taut line, and breezy as a waltz, we’re all gliding by.

Paul Richardson and Mary Rothlisberger are penpals, collaborators, and neighbors in a variety of landscapes, both real and imagined. Their explorations into aeronautics began with air mail, as a cross-country long-term letter-writing relationship grew into a saga-sized collaborative fiction. They construct alternative languages, archive the ephemeral, work at playing, listen closely, and look up. Work takes shape as print and sound media, small-press publications, site-specific installation, upbuilding exchange, experimental living systems, conscientious social practice, and slow motion.

Richardson and Rothlisberger have a truly unique cross-country engagement, having showed their recent work in Lincoln, Nebraska; Oakland, California; Seattle, Washington; Brooklyn, New York; Potlatch, Idaho; Pentwater, Michigan and more. They have also participated in shows in Berlin, Germany and Nodar, Portugal.

saki is also very excited to host a live set by Ryley Walker. Walker is known particularly for his fingerpicking virtuosity, which has been compared to the likes of John Fahey and Tim Buckley. The man’s got style.

Please join us Friday, April 5th from 6-9pm to celebrate the various stages of kites and atmospheric collaborations by Paul Richardson and Mary Rothlisberger. Enjoy a great night of fine art, kite flying, music, and enjoy food and beverages provided by saki. This event is FREE.

saki, founded in 2010, is Logan Square’s premier boutique record store, art gallery, and performance space.
