Our big feature on the Halsey-featured artist and musician Lonnie Holley, who makes found object assemblage and performs full concerts of totally improvised music, will be out in next week's paper — our annual Fall Arts Issue — but in the meantime, you'll want to catch the artist at work in the Addlestone Library this afternoon from 1-4 p.m. As part of his Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art exhibit, Something to Take My Place
, Holley will have three pieces in the library, in addition to the 40 that will be on view in the Halsey's galleries.
The show opens tomorrow night, Aug. 21, with a reception from 6:30-8 p.m. Holley will also be in residency at the Halsey, with several events including a concert scheduled for mid-September. And not to toot our own horn, but you're going to want to read the feature on this incredible artist when it hits stands this coming Wednesday. His life story is truly unbelievable.
