Hello, art enthusiasts, creators, and community members!
Your Invitation to the Enchanting World
Join us in this transformative journey as we welcome you on September 15th, from 5 PM to 9 PM, at The Studio CT, located in the historic factory buildings in the pulsating heart of the Parkville neighborhood in Hartford, CT.
As we prepare to usher you into a world of imagination, innovation, and boundless creativity at The Studio CT, we are thrilled to bring to the limelight the very heart and soul of our open house event – the transcendent world of the Electric Jungle.
Electric Jungle: More Than an Exhibition, It’s an Experience
Embark on a journey where art meets sensation, where every step you take immerses you deeper into a realm of light, sound, and celestial storytelling that transcends the barriers of art exhibitions as you know them. This is not just an art installation; it is an experience that echoes through your senses, crafted meticulously by the visionary local artists, Mercury and Ryan Glista.
Feel the enveloping embrace of 20-foot fabric ribbons that hang from above, guiding you through pathways that echo with transformative energies. A wonderland inspired by Mercury's time in the Puerto Rican rainforests, every detail has been thoughtfully designed to immerse you in an ethereal jungle where you are not merely a spectator but a part of a living, breathing art installation.
A Tapestry of Emotions Awaits You
As you venture further, the room blooms with heavenly lights illuminating the cosmic tapestry, while evocative scents guide you deeper into the narrative woven through visual artistry and heartfelt storytelling. This experiential masterpiece has been a sanctuary for many, inciting a symphony of emotions ranging from joy, reflection, to transcendent meditation, inviting laughter, tears, and smiles, all in one enriching sitting.
This is a space where angels dance through rays of light, where urban dances projected onto hanging ribbons and walls bring stories to life, offering a glimpse of the heavenly reflected in the earthly, and the vastness of the cosmos mirrored in the intricacies of the jungle.
Ticketing Details: Experience this vibrant voyage for $9.99 per hour of viewing, or opt for the $30 donation ticket for unlimited views throughout the evening, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the meditative spectacle.
Ryan Glista and Mercury: A Collaboration that Birthed Magic
Ryan Glista, renowned for his immersive art videos, pairs with Mercury, bringing a vision to life that dissolves the boundaries between the viewer and the artwork. A harmonious ballet of light, colors, and textures creates a space where you forget the world outside, stepping into a dimension of otherworldly beauty and meditative peace.
Together, they have conceived an art piece that is more than visuals; it is a tribute to diversity, a nod to the talent of artists of color, and a testimony to the rich tapestry of experiences that artists bring from across the world to Hartford, a place rapidly becoming a nurturing ground for emerging talents.
Special thanks to The Greater Hartford Arts Council for the sponsorship of this transformational exhibit.
