Tom Hester's funny film scores a close second in Montreal, Kathy Dunn Hamrick scores good press in New York, and AMOA keeps Liebovitz late 'til 8
Kathy Dunn Hamrick earned a bit of good press in The New York Times after her company's recent turn in a showcase of independent artists at P.S. 122. In the July 25 edition, Erika Kinetz noted: "There rises from the messy tumult of half-formed dances, bad lyrics, gender-bending charm, and awkward pauses, the occasional flash of beauty and inspiration. Jennifer Lanier, who had come from Hawaii to perform in the Road Show, delivered a rollicking monologue, and Kathy Dunn Hamrick, a choreographer from Austin, Tex., made a sweet dance full of lilting jumps and the simple pleasures of moving."
Though it's about to close the doors on the popular exhibits "Annie Leibovitz: American Music" and "Charles Mary Kubricht: Scanning the Grand Canyon," the Austin Museum of Art will keep its doors open a little later than usual until 8pm Aug. 4-7 to make it easier for working stiffs to see what the fuss is about. The shows are projected to be AMOA's third most popular by average daily attendance, following the two Andys, Warhol and Goldsworthy. For more information, visit www.amoa.org.
