About the Pop Up:
Talis Gallery Harlem Pop Up presents world-class photography in a newly-renovated two-family townhouse on a tree-lined street in the heart of Harlem. While the spectacular townhouse is for sale, the exhibition showcases unique framed and unframed images in a relaxed environment that promotes the elegance, beauty and magic of photography.

5% of sales will be donated to Concert Artists Guild.

About the artist:
For more than five decades, Ralph Gibson has dominated surreal photography. He creates images that incorporate everyday fragments with sensual and mysterious undertones, and through them, he builds narrative meaning. Taking pictures of simple things, he transforms them into something arresting, giving the final product contemplative significance.

Invoke, multi-string quartet

Winner, 2018 CAG Competition

Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater
A co-presentation with Joe’s Pub

Described as “not classical…but not not classical” (David Srebnik, SiriusXM Classical Producer), Invoke continues to successfully dodge even the most valiant attempts at genre classification. The multi-instrumental band’s other “not-nots” encompass traditions from across America, including bluegrass, Appalachian fiddle tunes, jazz, and minimalism. Invoke weaves all of these styles together to create truly individual music written by and for the group.

Invoke will perform AMERICAN POSTCARDS: featuring Invoke originals and new music by American composers.
