This Summer of Kork

Summer is a time of hiatus for many an art space, but not so for kork, the everpumping, everchurning cultural juggernaut in an accounting office in Poughkeepsie, NY.
The post Labor day gearing up of labor came early this season. For the months of May and June, Mark Creegan of Jacksonville FL, labored daily, and made labor daily for the accounting office staff, enlisting them in the creation of artwork with daily requests via email create and post photocopies of various subjects. There's a slide show of the collaboration's results on the kork blog.
Since the beginning of July and still up through Aug 31, Denver based artist Lauri Lynnxe Murphy presaged the weirdly wet Summer we've experienced by imagining the outcome of a clash between the forces of nature clashes and the manufactured atmosphere of the office space environment. What she's come up with is a bio/botanical form that look like animated shrooms sporting a margarita's salted rim.

Christopher Patch and Bridget Mullen, both artists based in Brooklyn are teaming up to take the Sept/Oct shift on the board.
