New Projects from OluShola Cole (Mt. Royal School of Art '15)
I'm so very super excited to announce that I'll be teaming up with GeoMorphic Tank - a kick butt and collaborative team made up of New Haven based visual artists Debbie Hesse and Rashmi Talpade. We'll be working with GMT's newest project Sway.Shift. I'll be doing installation performance and hosting movement and sound workshops at the opening reception of Sway.Shift at SCA Gallery in Alberquerque, New Mexico.
Please take a few minutes to look at our site and consider supporting our wonderful page. I'm very proud of all the work we have done to get this off the ground. Debbie, Rashmi and I (aka Team GMT) are very much looking forward to going there on a fully funded campaign and thank you for your support!
