A Postcard to Erie from Prague : A Guest Blog by Jessica Taylor

Monday Dec 12th, 2022

Soon you won’t have to travel as far as Prague to see amazing art like this. A few months ago, Menajerie Studio and BOTH Studios decided to team up and form a new entity: Liquid Light Factory. They are currently developing a permanent video mapped sculpture display that will be located in the soon-to-be newly renovated EMI site on 12th and Cherry. If you wish to see a sneak preview of what this is going to look like, check out the pop up installation on December 16th from 7pm-9pm at FEED Media Art Center 1307 State Street, Erie, PA.

Meet Passle Helminski, 2022 Lydia McCain Established Artist Fellow

Thursday Dec 8th, 2022

EAC’s 2022 Lydia McCain Established Artist Fellow, Passle Helminski, has had quite an incredible year. Her work was featured in 20 exhibitions across the nation and earned multiple accolades from juried shows. On top of her busy artistic career, Passle was featured in Sports Illustrated for racing in the New York City Marathon with her service dog, Zoey. 

Passle uses tubular knitting to create energetic sculptures that are sleek and organic in form. Industrial ribs emerge from and interact with brightly colored, textural knitted dressings to create work that is both familiar and otherworldly. As her work swirls in the air, it creates movement and shadows that invite the viewer to another world.
