"candy dreams of SPACEMEN" by Corey LeChat
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
16 Aug 2008


Corey LeChat's head is not just in the clouds, it’s in the stratosphere, mesosphere, through the thermosphere and exosphere and toward galaxies and dimensions far beyond.
With his lens trained on rocket ships and astronauts, Corey's latest photographic series launches the viewer on a journey through space and time.
The casual view captures unbelievable things, like attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion or even C-beams glittering in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.
Thankfully these moments are not lost in time, but preserved for the entire cosmos to see (and then perhaps to also dream of spacemen).
Corey LeChat's latest series of 35 mm color photographs materializes at
Moxie Dada, August 9 through 30.
1416 ARCH STREET / PITTSBURGH PA 15212 / PLANET EARTH
The opening reception, to be held Saturday, August 9 from 6-9 pm, features music from out of this world including an original theramin score composed and performed by the artist.
Space snacks and Tang will be provided for attendees.
