This Saturday 💌 The Singing Well is a chance to voice your deepest inner being, from the bottom of your well ~ a cross between a flower essence repertoire & a choir ~ we will be honoring ourselves, our well-ancestors, & the Otherworld through song & with flower essences.

The Singing Well is one gathering presented in two parts:

Part One: will focus on a few essences that make nice companions for tuning into our innate musical ability, connecting with our guides, & strengthening our trust in expression. Everyone will also get to choose an essence to work with in the second part of our workshop.

Part Two: we will learn how to prepare the body, voice, & spirit to sing. Expect some vocal warm-ups, stretching, grounding exercises, & experimentation. We will work with our flower essences, let our intuitive singing voices emerge individually, & then together as a group.

This workshop is a practice of trusting our deep voices, of healing from our center out, & of honoring through song & with essences.

Friday, November 18th 6-9 pm 💌 Through video and audio installation, GOLF explores the relationship between privatized space and loss in all its forms. In this one-day pop-up exhibition and live sound performance at Lump Gallery, we examine the history and culture of golf in marking boundaries of class, race, and gender through its practice of exclusivity and hetero-patriarchy. GOLF immerses the viewer in the past, present and future of ecological disaster.

Artists: Sadie Allen, Nicole Blevins, Maxwell Bryn, Brooklyn De Shazo-Griffin, Noah Gulledge, Sergia Jimenez, Bailey Johnson, Taylor Knoll, Lilian Manning, Payton Mills, Hope Mutter, Gustavo Rios, Nina Sehgal, Taika Sorjonen, Mirai Thorbjornsen, Bronwyn White
Artists are video students at UNC Chapel-Hill 💌

11/04/2022

the love letter is a culmination of everything Lump's founder, Bill Thelen, has been doing since he stepped away from the gallery in 2017. To be fair, he was never truly away. This show is, in fact, a broad collection of isolated curatorial concepts that Bill has been testing at Lump in various forms, such as Drawing Room and Bad Touch 2.0. Whatever the project, the foundation is always drawing. And this is where Bill's curatorial impulse is clearly inexorable from his own practice, which is dominated by an even stronger impulse to draw. Bill says, “My practice had always been a little bit here a little bit there but one thing always remained consistent was my drawing practice. I was always thinking about how I could utilize my curating background to challenge the way I thought about drawing”.

So the experiment continues at Lump with a sprawling collection of drawings, single day events, pop-up installations, performances, screenings, and free classes, bolstered further by Bill's focus on q***r, femme, and intersectional energy.

This is Bill's love letter to art, to artists, to the fabric of space(creative)time, and to his irreverent, 26 year old art-child, Lump.

SAY WHAT YOU SEE ny opens Friday 6-9.

A conversation with Zach Storm inevitably veers toward literature. Real books. Bound paper, slathered with words printed in ink, seem always to be on his mind. And this consummate reader's love of syntax correlates directly to his love of pigments, inks and paints. In his world, a "line" is literary and visual, at once. And the specific speed of that line, in either realm, is essential. Zach reads slowly, deliberately, so that his experience of a story is immersive. The same goes for his drawings and paintings, whose abstract narratives smolder, rather than unfold. His method of creating the work is akin to a real time rehearsal of our experience of seeing the work. In the end, everything is quiet.
