STEP RIGHT UP
The Unsettling Imagery of an American Carnival
Created and Curated by Craig S Banks
On view at Spotlight October 2023
A Note from the Artist:
This project has been a uniquely artistically satisfying experience. Through concept, material and techniques assembled over a lifetime, combined with layers of texture, meticulous detail and disturbing imagery I have created a dystopian tribute to the American Carnival, hoping to instill in the viewer a sense of both wonder and amusement mixed with an equal sense of dread and discomfort.

Industry is an artist's guild and music venue located in the heart of Huntington village. The Guild currently has about forty members.
We are a space where art and socializing come together organically (hopefully) -without any of the usual financial underpinnings of the art world.
There's a bar, a stage and a cheese store to help with the socializing. Buy a painting and you support the arts, buy a drink and you support the spot; pay the cover and you support the band.
We don't charge ourselves commission (all sales go to the person who created the piece) and there is no cost to be a member.
It's simply a place where artists can congregate, discuss, experiment, and create free of any charges.
The idea is sublimely expressed by a painter, "Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together."
-anonymous one eared artist.
digho is a full service art and design studio with a passion for supporting the arts. Teamed up with neighbor, Lenny Marks, of Len Marks Photography for a perfect space to showcase local art. digho proudly presents this solo show of Thomas Bennicase of Hardtack arts.
This exhibit is intended to show a representation of the varied facets of Thomas’ array of art-making styles.
The collages presented are based on public domain and self-made images that are intentionally stripped of identification, mixed together and altered with cut and paste techniques and painted and drawn over. Conceptually, the images are constructed using an improvisational method where the resulting content displays a composition of images, seemingly unrelated, having the effect of imbuing a faint recollection or a familiarity that cannot be placed.
The graphic images presented, or “Yield” Series, is a long-term study of interchangeable graphic components;A vocabulary if you will, where the parts can be assembled and re-assembled to form several different compositions. They portray a modular, sentient being that is a factory for tears, influenced by circuit and diagram design and orthographic technical drawing.

The Huntington Historical Society’s Soldiers and Sailors Memorial building was built as the town library in 1892. After the library moved to its current location at the other end of Main Street in 1958, the building, still owned by the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Association, was used by the Huntington school district. From 1969 on it became home to the Town Historian. In 2000, the Association donated the building to the Huntington Historical Society. The Society undertook an ambitious eight year restoration project and re-opened it as a museum in 2008.
Return to Sender: Women of Color in Colonial Postcards & the Politics of Representation is an art exhibition that includes photographic stills which recreate the representation of women from the colonies in Orientalist postcards dating back to the early 20th century. To broaden the cultural context of these staged images, the exhibition also includes fabric-based digital collages by artist Mara Ahmed that celebrate South Asian cities, architecture, and peoples. The exhibition and its catalog provide information about the history of colonial postcards, the role of photography, Western imperialism and the construction of the East, the colonial male gaze, women of color as figures of a phantasm, and ways to resist such objectification and framing.
Exhibit September 17th- October 15th (*October 1st - Opening Reception 12:00-1:00 pm)
Return to Sender: Women of Color in Colonial Postcards & the Politics of Representation is a short, experimental film directed and produced by Mara Ahmed. It pushes the documentary medium in unexpected ways by opening with three contemporary South Asian American women who recreate British colonial postcards from the early 20th century. Dressed in lavish traditional attire and jewelry and shot exquisitely in a darkened studio, the women emulate the awkward poses of the postcard women, only to subvert the colonial male gaze and acquire autonomy by choosing an action of their own. This symbolic ‘returning’ of the Orientalist gaze is layered with discussions about Eurocentric beauty standards, representations of South Asian women in media and culture, stereotypes, othering, identity and belonging. The film hopes to create community by facilitating conversations about erasure and the politics of representation.
It will premiere at Cinema Arts Centre on October 1st, 2023, at 2:00pm with a panel discussion directly following the film.
