BIO
Carla Gannis is an artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She holds an MFA in painting from Boston University and is the recipient of several awards, including a 2005 New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Grant in Computer Arts. She has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. Most recently she collaborated with poet Justin Petropoulos on a transmedia book, installation and net art project entitled <legend> <legend> (Jaded Ibis Press and Transfer Gallery, 2013). She is Assistant Chair of The Department of Digital Arts at Pratt Institute.

Gannis's work examines the narrativity of 21st century representational technologies and questions the hybrid nature of identity, where virtual and real embodiments of self diverge and intersect. She feels akin to past and contemporary artists and writers who uncannily deconstruct rigid notions of reality and perception.

NEW AMERICAN STORY ART
Nate Larson, Jim Torok, David Kramer, Carla Gannis, Dotty Attie, Sue Coe,
Scott Teplin, Renee French and Mac Adams
eyewash@Parkers Box 193 Grand St. Brooklyn
October 15 through November 14 2004
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, October 15th 6-9pm
VIDEO & PERFORMANCE NIGHT: Friday, October 29th, 7-9:30 pm

NEW AMERICAN STORY ART is a survey of current 'story art' being created in
the United States. Since the early-1970's this genre of narrative art has
gone widely unnoticed.

This exhibition is a showcase for artists who have developed innovative
ways--through expanded formats and technologies--to give this direction in
visual art new 'looks' and possibilities. Nate Larson, Jim Torok, David
Kramer, Carla Gannis, Dotty Attie, Sue Coe, Scott Teplin, Renee French and
Mac Adams are featured in an exhibition of multi-media, mixed media and
installation art.

On Friday, October 29th eyewash in conjunction with Parkers Box presents an
evening of video and performance dealing with story-telling. Performers
include lap-top storytelling by Jon Keith Brunelle, kookie country and
Western ballads by Larry Krone, angry artworld rants by David Kramer and
others TBA. A full video program will be shown twice featuring new works by
Suzie Silver, Justin Marshall, William Powhida and much more.

Artist, Educator and Curator LARRY WALCZAK started eyewash in June 1997 on
the 3rd Floor of a turn-of-the-century residential building in Williamsburg.
Since January 2002, it has been a "migratory gallery," either collaborating
with other galleries, or producing shows in borrowed or otherwise
temporarily acquired spaces. It specializes in showcasing emerging and
mid-career artists from Brooklyn.
