Nearly two years since the catastrophe of hurricane Maria, the island of Puerto Rico continues the ongoing process of recovery. The handling of this crisis has served to illustrate, once again, a history of neglect of these U.S. citizens. Nor Wind, Nor Water features artwork that address the ongoing struggles of Puertorriqueño (Puerto Ricans) to rebuild physically, emotionally, and economically. The challenges faced by the Puertorriqueño diaspora are not theirs alone, nor should the process of healing. The proceeds and collected donations raised through this exhibition will go to aid in the still much needed rebuilding on the island.

Throughout the month of July, Lightbox Film Center at International House Philadelphia will present Shimmering Synths: The Film Music of Tangerine Dream. For over five decades the German electronic music group has created dreamy, minimalist soundscapes and iconic film scores. To a greater extent, the film score embodies the harmonious relationship between music and visual art forms. The interaction between the two has become an integral part of art theory and history, especially since the 20th century. Even when visual art and music do not overtly influence one another, they often share abstract qualities or similar external influences, such as cultural innovation, political movements, or technological developments.
Composition in Concert will accompany Lightbox’s programming as an exhibition showcasing visual artwork informed by or in conversation with music.
International House Philadelphia is located at 3701 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19104
Alla Reznik began painting in acrylic, but in recent years her focus has been oil. “I was attracted to the variety of color spectrum that can be reached with oil paint”. Her strength is in unique application and layering of paint to achieve volume and texture. Her artwork has been exhibited in Philadelphia and surroundings. She is a recipient of numerous awards and a member of local art communities, including Da Vinci Art Alliance, Main Line Art Center, Wayne Art Center, InLiquid, etc. “Vibrant” is a collection of artwork characterized by strong and vivid color palette.
