Meet the Composer

Potter-Belmar Labs has been awarded a MetLife Creative Connections grant from Meet the Composer, in support of our Spring 2008 West Coast Tour!
Thank you Meet the Composer!

We're taking the tour by Amtrak! Anyone along the way who might be interested in a multimedia fortune-telling, in late May or early June, should get ahold of the author of this blog!

Ann Arbor Film Festival

Leslie will be in Ann Arbor this week, attending the 46th Ann Arbor Film Festival.
The Potter-Belmar Labs short, Pandora's Bike, was selected and will be shown in the 9 p.m. screening Wednesday night, the 26th of March.
The Ann Arbor Film Festival is the oldest and most venerable festival in America showcasing experimental and independent films. It is always an event and a spectacle. If you're in the area, and you want to witness some incredible art, there is no better opportunity.

Mixing Chamber at Luminaria

Potter-Belmar Labs collaborated with San Antonio artist, Stuart Allen, to create "Mixing Chamber," on view for one day only, Saturday, March 15, from 10am until 10pm, at the San Antonio Museum of Art.

The Museum's Curator of Contemporary Art, David Rubin, has described "Mixing Chamber," which fills the Cowden gallery with light, colors, and sound, as "a giant, walk-through luminaria." We think he's pretty much nailed that on the head.
Not by coincidence only, downtown will be filled with contemporary art during the day and night of the 15th, as the city celebrates it's first-ever Luminaria Arts Night. There will be plenty to do and see. Don't miss it!

This week, in the Press

Don't miss the conversation Potter-Belmar Labs shared with Chris Kubick and Anne Walsh, known as Double Archive, appearing in the upcoming Spring 2008 issue of Art Lies Contemporary Art Quarterly. The interview is already posted on the Art Lies website. But be sure to buy the magazine, it's full of great stuff, including a DVD of video art curated by Andrea Grover of Houston's Aurora Picture Show, and is now available at Barnes & Nobles bookstores all over the United States.

The San Antonio Business Journal identified Potter-Belmar's Leslie Raymond as a "Women of Influence," including her with a number of outstanding ladies from the S.A. arts scene, in a special supplement to the March 7-13, 2008 issue. You can find issues anywhere magazines are sold, as well as curbside newspaper boxes around town.

Finally, keep your eyes open for the San Antonio Express-News on Wednesday. As part of the paper's Luminaria coverage, Dan Goddard interviewed PBL and our collaborator, Stuart Allen, regarding the Mixing Chamber, an installation at the San Antonio Museum of Art coming up this Saturday, March 15.
