Abaton Garage is pleased to present two debut solo exhibitions this August, both by professional musicians who also practice the visual arts.

Scott Freyer, best known as the percussionist for Tower Recordings, Pothole Skinny and various other experimental bands, has created a body of intricate constructions from discarded shards of metal, loose wire, and odd bits of rubber and plastic. Building on the post-minimalist tradition of open form, Freyer conjures a sinuous materiality from his skeletal frameworks, addressing manifold discomforts, physical and psychological, itches that can’t be scratched, tics that can’t be controlled.

Marianne Nowottny has been performing and recording her own unusual brand of soundcraft for nearly a decade, garnering international acclaim along the way. Nowottny re-introduces herself at Abaton Annex as an accomplished painter of fantastic imagery. Her cartoonish creatures of flight are born of an unwavering enthusiasm for advertisement and illustration. Skyife is captured here in supersaturated color by a multimedia artist who, true to name, is at home with media in all its forms. This exhibition will be on display at Sweet Priscilla’s Café, which is acting as an annex to Abaton Garage during 2007.

You’re cordially invited to attend an opening reception for Bondage of Self and Of the Air at Abaton Garage on August 12th from 3-7pm. Musical performances by Ziggurat, a duo featuring Scott Freyer and Megan Freeman, and Marianne Nowottny will begin at 6:00.
