Artist Barb Goldberg’s paintings reflect her love of color and minimalistic abstraction. Her work will be on exhibit at the Downtown Phoenix campus Library’s Vault Gallery through Aug. 9.

After a career in corporate America, Goldberg decided to dive into her love of art full time. She paints in acrylic as well as multi-media elements. Each piece can take months to produce as they have thick textures and multiple layers. Each individual piece can never be reproduced, she explains.

“When I face the canvas, I know exactly where the journey will start. Although my plan is clear from the beginning, I always end up in a different place: just like our lives,” Goldberg writes.

“Although not intentional, you can see the common thread in all of my pieces. There is always turmoil or movement and the colors are mixed in a way that they can never be reproduced. The work is simple yet complicated at the same time. (It’s) like our lives.”

Goldberg’s beautiful paintings have been on display at MonOrchid Gallery, The Walter Gallery, Mayo Hospital, Xanadu Gallery, Herberger Theater, PopHealth Corporation, Roche Tissue Diagnostics Gallery and the Shemer Art Gallery in Phoenix, Tucson and Scottsdale. Her pieces have been purchased by corporations and private collectors.

She has had several one-woman shows both at the JCC Art Gallery as well as the Pita Jungle Restaurant Company. In addition, she was selected by famed artist, Ed Mell, as one of the top artists at the Scottsdale Community College Annual Art Show. Her other awards include 2017 Vortex Award, Scottsdale, Arizona; Best of Artist SCC 2017; Artists of Promise Award 2017; Best Student Work, Shemer Art Gallery; Best of Artist SCC 2015; Artist of Promise 2015.

This exhibit features the work of Joseph Clayton Mills, an artist, composer and performer who explores the intersection of literary and musical composition.

Spanning a wide range of materials and approaches, including paintings inspired by the working manuscripts of modernist writers such as Marcel Proust, James Joyce and Franz Kafka; text-based musical scores; graphic notation; recordings and ephemera, Mills’ eclectic body of work is unified by a deep engagement with materiality, textuality and the limits of communication. 

Mills is a musician, artist and writer who lives and works in Arizona. His text-based paintings, assemblages and sound installations have been exhibited in Chicago, New York and Europe, and his work has appeared in numerous publications, including The New Yorker. He is the author of the short story collection "Zyxt." In 2012, he published "Nabokrossvords," a translation of early Russian  crosswords by Vladimir Nabokov. He is an active participant in the improvised and experimental music community in Chicago, where his collaborators have included Adam Sonderberg and Steven Hess (as Haptic), Michael Vallera (as Maar), Noé Cuéllar (as Parital), Sylvain Chaveau, Jason Stein, Michael Pisaro and Olivia Block, among many others. His recordings have appeared on numerous labels, including Another Timbre, FSS, and Entr’acte. In 2013, he launched Suppedaneum, a label focused on releasing scores and their realizations.

Virtual reality appeared as early as the late 19th century, and began to take off in the 1950s. Recent technological developments in hardware and software have given way to more accessible and immersive virtual reality experiences. 

With the goal of providing students with the collaborative spaces and tools they need to bring their ideas to life, ASU Library's mkrspace presents a virtual reality (VR) exhibit to demonstrate the technology's potential in advancing education among other disciplines and areas of interest, such as digital tourism, disability studies, and the health and medical profession. 

ASU's Garret Yates, an undergraduate student in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, will be leading the VR demo, which includes more than 20 scenarios that will enable the ASU community to experience everything from what it's like to be at the bottom of the sea to the top of Mount Everest. 

Hardware to be used in the demo includes a custom personal computer, HTC Vive VR kit (with stands), Bluetooth headphones, a 28 inch monitor (with speakers), a keyboard, mouse and Xbox controller.

Come experience virtual reality at Hayden Library!
