Mark Gould & Pink Baby Monster is a three-member chamber music/performance art ensemble. The group is composer driven with all compositions and poetry written by members of the ensemble. The instrumentation of MG/PBM is trumpet/electric trumpet/echo cornet; guitar; computer samples, myriad midi components and drum samples; vocals. The musical roots of MG/PBM are wide and reflect the influences of the members of the ensemble whose ages span more than 2 generations. The musical ingredients of the ensemble are drawn from opera, electronica, beat-based minimalism, jazz and rock with a generous seasoning of hip-hop and Tibetan throat singing. The inspiration for the poetry and musical monologues is not drawn from the usual sources. MG/PBM's muse is politics, religion, science and mathematics, contemporary aesthetics, and various cultural ironies and peculiarities.

Mark Gould was principal trumpet of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra from 1974-2003 and has been on the faculty of the Juilliard School since 1982 and the Manhattan School of Music since 2004. Since leaving the MET Orchestra, Mr. Gould has been able to devote more time to chamber music, solo performance and conducting.

Sarah Sutton
Knots and Pulses

This exhibition by Ithaca-area artist Sarah Sutton will feature a series of monochromatic oil paintings that combine representational imagery with distortions and abstractions that create scenarios in flux. They are essentially landscape paintings, but Sutton's treatment of the landscape toys with its sense of space and the notion of the built vs. the natural environment.

Katie Bell
Abstract Cabinet

Katie Bell’s exhibition is a site-specific installation conceived of as a one-act drama starring anonymous artifacts. Functioning like a theatrical set, the gallery holds static characters that reference the interior architecture of corporate and commercial spaces. Sculptural objects are often fractured or untethered to a contextual structure. Functioning as a whole, the individual artefacts are a nod to players on a stage, held captive in space and time.
