Silver Gelatin, Architectural Photography by

~ Mark Fischer, Riverfronttimes

If buildings could pose for the camera, Keith Mosier’s photographs would be centerfolds!  In them he captures the glamorous Streamline Moderne buildings of Miami’s Art Deco District.  Even when these gorgeous, wedding-cake concoctions are shabby and neglected, they’re sleek, modern, and undeniably sexy in Mosier’s photographs.  More than 20 prints are on view from June 30 - August 11, 2012 with an opening reception for the artist on Saturday, June 30, from 7-10PM.  

“Miami Centerfold” is Keith Mosier’s first solo exhibition.

STATIC: Sex, Lies & Watergate Tapes

Curious about her grandfather’s insistence that Nixon was framed,
artist and writer Wonder Koch began listening to the Watergate
recordings. Koch now believes that Nixon was INDEED framed. “By those
diabolical framers of the Constitution.”

On Sunday, June 17, 2012, the 40th Anniversary of Watergate, Koch will
present a work of fiction in which audio from the Watergate tapes
serves as the backdrop for a narrator with Watergate problems of her
own. The cadence and tone of Nixon's voice had wormed into my brain. I
could hear Nixon in my head, barking orders. The thing was, this new
Nixon was usually right. When Nixon bellowed, “Time to get out of bed,
Diamond Crutcher!” I knew it really was time.

The reading will take place at Fort Gondo Compound for the Arts, 3151
Cherokee Street, St. Louis, MO 63118. Doors open at 7 PM, reading will
begin promptly at 7:30.
