Roxbury Hosts the ‘Festival of the Arts’ - May 17, 2017

Roxbury High School invites the community to its annual Festival of the Arts on Wednesday, May 17th from 6-8 p.m. at Roxbury High School.

The Performing Arts department will feature Dance and Broadway Theatre and a concert by the Eisenhower Middle School students, refreshments will be made and served by the Family and Consumer Science classes, and the Industrial Arts department will display woodworking, computer arts and drafting, CAD and 3-D design. Admission is free to all.

Lala at WorkLala Abaddon is this year’s theme and will personally be at the Festival of the Arts. She has been working with the Photography II classes on a weaving project similar to the work she makes. She is also working with the rest of the art department students in preparation for the Festival to make an installation.

“Our upcoming artist-in-residence is going to be our biggest one yet! Lala Abaddon is a rising star in the art world and we are so lucky to have her come,” shared Renee Zengel, RHS photography teacher.

Joann Hughes, RHS Fine Arts lead teacher, echoed Zengel’s sentiments and said, “We’re very excited about our theme artist. Through the artist-in-residence program, she will work with the Visual Arts classes to create an installation which will transform the high school lobby into an otherworldly experience.”

Abaddon will be in Roxbury as its artist-in-residence over a four-week period beginning April 13th. During her residency, she will go through two variations of the photo/paper weaving process. Photography students will be given the initial assignment to take photos over the course of a week of anything in their environment that inspires them like family, friends, nature, paintings, etc. Abaddon also wants to talk to as many art classes as she can and get as many students to work together on decorations and installations for the Festival.

Lalas Work #1“Students will learn to compare their photo compositions and comprehend the way color interacts with color and how form changes that by choosing two of their photographs and creating a weave pattern to then weave them together. From there the students can get creative, experimenting with the skills taught to them, but also with their own ideas and ways to change the process,” explained Zengel.

The students will be able to weave 2 or 3-dimensional, include lighting, paint, embroidery, crystals, and other materials into their work.

Abaddon’s objective during her residency is “to instill in the students the confidence that they can physically create beyond what they ever imagined. To challenge them to think outside of the box and problem solve within the realm of art. To teach specific technical skills related to photography, paper weaving, and sculpture and to inspire self-confidence in each individual and encourage teamwork in the larger installation process.”

Lala Abaddon is a New York based artist whose work seeks to examine that dual nature of binary relationships with parallels that give shape to their physical existence. In her woven photographic work, she integrates a milieu of components in her process. The repetitive sequencing of her teaching pushes the boundaries and blurs the lines of traditional analog photography. The layering, altering, deconstruction and reconstruction of her large-format chromogenic prints bring together deliberate motions of hand-paired imagery.

Lalas Work 2She holds a Bachelor degree in Sociology and Religion, and is an Artha Project alumni in New York City. This year she has taught at the School of Visual Art in NYC and has a residency with Long Road Projects in Jacksonville, Florida and the Red Bull House of Art in Detroit. She is currently being considered for a permanent public installation with the NYC MTA Transit System and is a featured artist for the BRIC Biennial for her home base, Brooklyn, NY.
