EVOLIX

Evolix is a contemporary pop group comprised of two siblings – Alexis and Korina. In 2016, the Boston natives officially began releasing songs under their current stage moniker. Having drawn a significant amount of influence from recording artists like Zedd, Jessie J and Dua Lipa, their original compositions primarily consist of dance-pop as well as EDM.  “Evolix strives to make a global impact where the lives of all are affected in some way by the empowering messages we are trying to promote,” said Korina.

Although both members contribute to Evolix equally, Korina is the principal songwriter of the group. She has built her foundation of lyrical content upon love, empowerment, heartbreak and other life experiences which teenagers face such as depression. The group’s other lead vocalist, Alexis, often provides the aesthetics which enhance her younger sister’s vision. “Because Korina and I are so close, we are able to play to each other’s strengths, and we are able to understand the overall creative vision. I can create a visual that will portray the true underlying message of Korina’s music,” said Alexis.

LONGHOUSE RESERVE AWARDED $46,756.50 GRANT FROM THE

ROBERT DAVID LION GARDINER FOUNDATION FOR OUTDOOR ART EXHIBITS

LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton has been awarded a $46,756.50 grant from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation. The purpose of the grant is to allow LongHouse to expand its reach into the Eastern Long Island community and beyond with outstanding and affordable cultural and historical experiences. These community outreach efforts center on the undeserved members of the local towns of the East End, primarily the immigrant population and their children. The grant directly assists in defraying rising costs in LongHouse’s Public Art in the Gardens Program, including costs associated with art acquisition, installation, marketing and outreach. 

LongHouse’s Executive Director, Matko Tomicic, says, “A grant from the Gardiner Foundation is a vote of confidence in LongHouse Reserve’s mission to illuminate the unique natural setting and artistic environment that has nurtured and inspired world renowned artists. It is a distinctive cultural designation for the region, nation and the world.”

Public Art in the Gardens is LongHouse Reserve’s year-long exhibition, the cornerstone of the art, garden and educational initiatives. It is open to the public in April and runs through December 2019. Each year, some of the art in the permanent collection is moved to different locations in the garden, providing a fresh perspective and renewed enjoyment to visitors. New art on loan from museums, galleries, artists and collectors is placed throughout the garden. Most of the art is in place for the Rites of Spring Season Opener in April. The placement and installation of the sculpture, often massive in size, is one of LongHouse’s biggest tasks and challenges. 

LongHouse strives to offer the local community programming at little or no cost. Year round programs that benefit from the grant include Rites of Spring, the LongHouse season opener; Family Day, a large community outreach event; Educational Programming, in which over 3,000 schoolchildren visit LongHouse Reserve annually with teachers free of charge; the Student Annual, an art competition that is open to kindergarten through 12th grade students throughout Long Island; Hand in Hand Treasure Hunt, an activity that drives growth of children visiting LongHouse; Garden Programming, or tours of the gardens, and Collaborative Relationships, such as partnerships with other cultural institutions. 

LongHouse uses its website, newsletter, and email marketing to reach its target population. The vibrant social media presence keeps visitors updated on happenings, events, and education programs. LongHouse reaches out to the undeserved members of the community with informal talks, flyers (printed in English and Spanish) and complimentary guest passes to be used during open days. LongHouse has formed an alliance with an English as a Second Language class and offers students and families complimentary bilingual tours. More than half the children who visit LongHouse are from Hispanic and African American households. Outreach events are added to all local media calendars and are featured in newspapers such as The East Hampton Star, The Independent, East Hampton Press, and Newsday.

Line-Up Includes 4 New Models with All-Black Bezels and Striking Color Accents

About G-SHOCK 

CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.” www.gshock.com/home

Jarren frame, 360 MAGAZINE

Jarren Frame

New York artist, Jarren Frame, has made a mark in the art scene and is currently on display at world-renowned hotels and celeb hotspots such as Socialista, Sixty Hotel Soho, Mamo, Casa Malca, The Bowery Hotel, and Faena, alongside Damien Hirst’s iconic Golden Mammoth.  

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1990, Frame was inspired to step into the art world as a child from his grandfather, Philip Frame — a Sunday painter and founder of Frame Textiles Group (one time the largest blanket manufacturing business in the world). Philip would teach his grandson to paint flowers on weekends, igniting a spark leading him to pursue art full-time.

In October 2017, Frame displayed a series of James Bond-inspired works known as “The Playboy Paintings” during his first solo exhibition alongside photographer Peter Cary Peterson at The SIXTY SoHo Hotel. Following its success, he collaborated with Puerto Rican artist Jorge Zeno on “Zeno Gravity” on another Bond-inspired piece.

A rotating selection of artworks from his first collection titled “Bond, James Bond,” debuted in December 2017 at 77 Greene Street in New York. The series of 33 acrylic-on-wood pieces featured the recontextualization of vintage James Bond imagery over modern-day landscapes. The idea was born during a trip to Sardinia, where the 1977 classic film The Spy Who Loved Me was shot. ‘‘’Bond, James Bond’ was created on such an impulse. What I sought to do with those paintings was neutralize some of the shame around sex and masculinity. That’s really what those paintings are about: Fun, sex and champagne.”All 33 pieces sold out within a year, attracting a number of bold-face name buyers such as Chris Burch, Steve Wynn, Barron Hilton, former United States Secretary of Commerce Peter George Peterson, Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers, and hoteliers including Jason Pomeranc andJason Strauss.

Frame’s current collection, “Colors,” is another series of 33 paintings – this time acrylic-on-canvas and was inspired by the meaning we assign to colors and is meant to confront the viewer with the enormous diversity of choice we have. “‘Colors’ are a way of bottling up excitement and happiness that provide the power to inspire and uplift in addition to capturing and championing the spirit of individuality.”  The series premiered, for a limited-time at Socialista and Surf Lodge in July 2019.

NOBUKHO NQABA – IZICWANGCISO ZEZETHU… 
1 AUGUST 2019 | LEVEL 2

EXHIBITION OPENING

This exhibition is an autobiographical reflection of Nobukho Nqaba‘s childhood home and upbringing. It highlights the precariousness of daily life within an informal settlement in Grabouw, a town in the Western Cape.

Many people migrated to this community with bundled up ambitions and modest possessions all packed tightly into chequered plastic bags, commonly known as China bags. They moved in hope for better work; jobs that would eventually require them to dress in sweat-stained blue overalls.

The exhibition’s Xhosa title, Izicwangciso Zezethu means we make plans. We may plan our lives, but we have no control of the outcome. It is a game of chance.

DREAMstate

Joseph Lee | Dennis Osadebe | Erik Mark Sandberg | Joshua Vides

September 12 – October 12, 2019

GR Gallery is thrilled to present “DREAMstate”, featuring for the first time artists Joseph Lee, Erik Mark Sandberg, Dennis Osadebe and Joshua Vides in a fresh, groundbreaking group exhibition. The show puts together 20 pieces, including paintings, works on paper and installations. The title is inspired by the unique creative energy that connects the four artists, able to forge, through different visions and techniques, an oneiric reality that misleads our visual realm.

Opening reception: Thursday September 12th, 6:00pm – 9:00pm(Exhibition Dates:September 12th– October 12th 2019). Members of the press can contact GR gallery in advance to schedule a private viewing and/or an interview with the artists before the exhibition is officially open.

WhoJoseph Lee (1987, Indiana), Dennis Osadebe (1991, Lagos)Erik Mark Sandberg (1975, Los Angeles), Joshua Vides (1989, California)

DREAMstate” aims to exhibit the exclusive artistic approach of these four internationally known and trendsetting talents that are bringing new vitality into a specific technical and aesthetical idea, through the use of patterns, optical illusions, decontextualized images and ambiguous imaginaries that lead toward the creation of a new dimension. The strong familiarity of this with actual reality will destabilize the viewer, throwing him in a confused state of deja vu’. Solid bold lines, illusive interiors, surrealistic figures, hypnotic arrangements, thick brushstrokes, subconscious revelations and visual puzzling, will channel their energy into a clean and dreamy form that affects the whole environment, able to immerse the spectator into a dreamlike atmosphere.

WILLOW RELEASES SELF-TITLED ALBUM

Multi-platinum singer, songwriter, actress, fashion icon and philanthropist WILLOW releases her new self-titled album today.

Listen to WILLOW: HERE.

Co-produced by WILLOW and her close friend Tyler Cole, the eight-song record establishes WILLOW as a musical poet with a style all her own.  Raw and honest lyrics featured on top of alternative and R&B productions highlight her inimitable creative spirit. Sonically, WILLOW elicits a vivid image of breezy drives along the coast with the top down and summer-night campfires.

This is WILLOW.

WILLOW transcends categorization. She first made history when 2010’s “Whip My Hair” went double-platinum, cementing her as “the youngest artist in history to achieve a double-platinum single. Evolving from this frenetic template, 2015’s ARDIPTHECUS gave way to the artful alternative power of The 1st, which New York Times fittingly dubbed the, “soundtrack to your adolescence. She graced the covers of Teen Vogue, W Magazine, and I-D Magazine in addition to Vanity Fair’s “Hollywood’s Next Wave” issue. Beyond receiving the 2016 Fashion Award for “New Fashion Icons,” Maison Margiela, Chanel, and Stance Socks have all sought her out to front campaigns. She holds the distinction of being “the youngest transatlantic Top 20 artist” and garnered “Outstanding New Artist” at the 2011 NCAAP Image Awards. She fights human trafficking alongside her mother’s organization Don’t Sell Bodies. Plus, she cohosts Red Table Talk on Facebook Watch. Every day, she defies boundaries and borders and defines herself as an individual through and through.

First images from Mars will be seen through Jenoptik lenses

When NASA launches the Mars 2020 mission the first images back to Earth in February of 2021 will be seen through lenses designed and engineered by Jenoptik.

The Jenoptik Light & Optics team in Jupiter, FL have been developing three types of mission critical lenses for use with the Mars Rover’s engineering cameras. Navigation lenses will capture the first live video footage from the mission as the rover explores the surface of Mars, crucially important when the rover drives autonomously. Hazard avoidance lenses will provide images that will help the rover identify obstacles and allow NASA engineers to see the movement of the robotic arm during sample collection. Finally, a cache lens will verify that a complete collection of the rock and soil samples have been achieved. Due to the cache lens’ proximity to the samples collected, to avoid contamination, the cleanliness requirements are extremely challenging.

All three lens types were built in a Jenoptik class 5 clean room with state-of-the-art filtration technology for high-precision optical assemblies. Custom test equipment was developed at Jenoptik to measure the optical performance during the demanding temperature extremes to withstand the conditions on Mars. Jenoptik performed several environmental tests in vacuum and over a wide temperature range with the lowest temperature being -135°C.

“Jenoptik is accustomed to demanding applications requiring expertise in the design, manufacture, and testing of complex optical assemblies in the fields of semiconductor, medical devices and defense industries”, said Jay Kumler, President of Jenoptik Optical Systems in North America. “We are very proud of the technical challenges and rigorous testing we have overcome which has really benefited the entire company, and we are honored to be a part of the monumental mission to Mars.”
