Whats Blooming now?

The Phatory is pleased to present an installation of recent works by Laurie Olinder starting December 7th through December 28th with an artist reception December 7th, from 6 – 8:00 p.m. and is open by appointment until December 28th.
With “What’s Blooming Now”, artist Laurie Olinder has created a vibrant environment that immerses viewers in her unique visual world.

Olinder’s studio abuts the 9C Community Garden, and she draws her inspiration from the plants, flowers, light and sound that waft through her window.
The title “What’s Blooming Now” refers to her regular posts (both physical and digital) on the current state of the Garden's horticulture. 
As she explains “I have always been inspired by textiles and have loved imagining my paintings as design on fabric. With the advent of digital printing,
 I was able to simply apply my paintings onto cloth.
With this exhibition, Olinder introduces her latest textile designs which she combines with works on paper to re-create the energy and mystery of her studio. She produces an environment of layered exuberance, as this world envelops us in a hypnotic maze of pattern, color, and texture.
An award-winning multimedia designer, painter and photographer, Olinder has presented work in a variety of venues including BAM, The American Repertory Theater, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and MASS MoCA.

ANATOMY THEATER Prototype Festival

About the Show: ANATOMY THEATER 
New York City Premiere 
January 7, 8 and 10-14 at 8 PM
Inspired by actual medical texts from the 17th and 18th century, anatomy theater follows the progression of a convicted murderess from her confession to execution, to denouncement, and finally to dissection, including an anatomy lesson for curious onlookers.  It is a moral dissection that seeks to discover how the insides of evildoers are different from those of righteous citizens.  Written by Pulitzer Prize-Winning composer David Lang and world-renowned visual artist Mark Dion, anatomy theater is a sardonic, tuneful and grisly theatrical event.
