are pleased to present a special viewing of Eric Rhein: Transmutation and Between The Lines, readings by Bill Kushner and Dan Fishback. These events will take place on Saturday April 2 from 4- 6pm at BoxoFFICE, 421 Hudson Street, New York. Between The Lines readings will begin at 5pm.
Eric Rhein, a native of New York's Hudson Valley, and resident of Manhattan, is known for his refined and passionate wire drawings which combine human forms with animal and plant life. He weaves personal stories, experiences, and mysticism into explorations of the powerful connections among man, nature, and the spiritual world. Transmutation, which is on view through April 9, 2011, features Rhein's own photographs, as well as vintage photography of male nudes, combined with found objects and bronze and silver castings of leaves and twigs.
Bill Kushner is the author of 7 books of poetry, most recently IN SUNSETLAND WITH YOU published by Straw Gate Books. A new volume entitled, WALKING AFTER MIDNIGHT will be published in spring 2011. Kushner is a 1999 and 2005 Fellow of the New York Foundation of the Arts. He lives and works in NYC.
