This event has ended.

Margot Farrington and Tony Martin are partners in life as well as art, their domain a continuous dialogue, with powerful currents -- sometimes cross currents -- of ideas and energy.

Margot Farrington, poet and storyteller, visual artist and performer, will exhibit her collages. She is the author of two volumes of poetry, and her work has appeared in magazines and anthologies. Recent fellowships and residencies include the I-Park Foundation and the Clock Tower. Viewers have seen her enigmatic collages at various galleries, including The Holland Tunnel, Sideshow and Meade Gallery at the Roxbury Arts Group. She has written for and performed in traditional and experimental mediums, often with Tony Martin. "Whichever the endeavor, I'm simply turning from one poem to another. Certainly the collage and the poem are kin. I turn to collage to make poems while eluding the tyranny of language."

Tony Martin's paintings dazzle and overwhelm. The paintings are suffused with pure light and energy that somehow manage to escape the frame. One could swear to the play of light moving, almost dancing, around the room, not surprising given his years of light shows and interactive performance works.

Martin has exhibited his work both nationally and internationally: the Leubsdorf Gallery at Hunter College, the National Academy Invitational, Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville Paris, are just a few venues. He has presented performances at Roulette, The Art Students League, Red Cat Theatre in Los Angeles and recently during a four-city of Brussels, Rottterdam, Bremen and Lisbon.

Farrington and Martin have performed together at myriad arenas; a sampling includes EMPAC at RPE, Miller Theater at Columbia University, Songline Series at Mills College, and the Optosonic Tea Series at the Experimental Intermedia Series.
