Local Photographer To Donate Proceeds To 9/11 Memorial Fund

Local Photographer To Donate Proceeds To 9/11 Memorial Fund.Local Photographer To Donate Proceeds To 9/11 Memorial Fund.For the first time in the collective’s history, Long Island City Artists Inc. is housing a full-length play. Dirt [contained] Theatre Company’s production of “Garden of Earthly Delights” by Fernando Arrabal is an immersive, theme-driven experience that follows an isolated and self-loathing actress through her sadomasochistic struggle between love and art.

The production will be coupled with visual arts in an array of mediums curated by LIC-A in the 8,000 sq. foot Plaxall Gallery at 5-25 46th Avenue, LIC. “Garden of Delights” will run from July 20 to August 27 on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

While the play will be the featured event, the accompanying visual art will be equally noteworthy. Among the artwork being exhibited is Theo Sahos’ 12” x 16” work, “Self-Reflection,” an unsettling yet masterful photo depicting the moments before crisis. The obscure portrait is of a street performer huddled over a bench, donned in a gargoyle costume, the black shroud and eerily powerful wings dominating the scene. Sahos, an accomplished and well-traveled photographer, is well known in the LIC Artists community for his insightful, diverse work. Taken in Jerusalem prior to a terrorist attack, “Self-Reflection” deviates from Sahos’ usual commentary on the struggles and joys of New York City urban life and provides a new, haunting perspective that will not fail to surprise. Sahos has announced that the proceeds from the sale of his work will be donated to the 9/11 Memorial Fund.
