Red enameled alligator encases three
cloth sacks of unified survival. Beneath zipper
#1 waits five nickels, bottle of glittered nail
polish, miniature journal, handful of pens, only
one still wearing cap. Skip #2, it is stuck
shut and whatever is in there has been labeled
unnecessary and forgotten. #3 never closes,
most-used, most-important, must remain
accessible, always. Checkbook teeters
against tightly-capped Crazy
Glue, shades sunglasses from potential scuffs
from engraved silver cardholder, coupon folder, ring
of 37 keys, only 3 having known locks or ignitions
to turn. Ringing requires perimeter check. Pockets
bulge, aspirin and birth control semi-hidden
in tightly-snapped front pocket, portable
hard drive and note cards on Roman Architecture
threaten to spill out of left side pouch. Right
must be the never-ending musical bleeping,
incessant blipping of latest high-tech, supposedly
miniaturized, iPhone, trying to pass itself
off as both computer and lifeline when it is really
more crutch and anvil. Last stop, strap with photo
keyring dangling attachment. Favorite snapshot
of herself smiling at the world, makes everyone wonder
who or what was making her laugh that hard.

Ashley Kelly Tata writing to invite you to the next theatrical extravaganza brought to you by Columbia University with the energy and collaboration of Enthuse Theater.
We are very excited (and a little bit nervous) to share with you the work we have been doing on Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights, written by “The Mother of us All,” Gertrude Stein. We have been hard at work detangling the knotty words of Stein in a valiant attempt to bring to you this take on a story we all know: Faustus has sold his soul to Mephisto for eternal life and knowledge—and light. But what if there is no proof of purchase? What if a woman entered this world and seems to possess that knowledge without having sold her soul? Who has the right to knowledge? What is the responsibility of power? What does a guy (or girl) have to do to get to hell?
We hope you will join us for 90 minutes of a theatrical exploratory event created by an incredible group of artists. Please come for the show, stay for the conversation, the environment, and the company.
Until then, with awe, enthusiasm and great anticipation,
Ashley Kelly Tata

The A.I.R. Fellowship Program for Emerging and Underrepresented Women Artists was established in 1993 and has helped launch the careers of over 40 women artists since it’s inception. Each year the program offers six women artists the opportunity to have their first solo exhibit or their first solo exhibit in 10 years. A.I.R. Fellows advance their careers with a studio visit from an art professional, 18 months of professional development, and mentoring with the A.I.R. Gallery artists and staff. A.I.R. Gallery looks forward to the dynamic and diverse exhibitions of each Fellowship Artist, presenting paintings, mixed media installation, photography, and sculpture. Additionally, each Fellowship recipient will organize a public outreach program at the gallery, meeting A.I.R.’s mission to provide leadership and community to women artists. We hope you will join us for these exciting exhibitions and events!

She was also one of eight American MFA students to be chosen for the USA/MFA exhibition in Israel’s leading graduate art school, Bezalel, promoting conversation in art between cultures. This exchange has influenced her current project curating an Israeli and American artist collaboration, opening in Sunset Park in April, 2011.

Einat Imber (born 1979, Israel) lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Although her practice is based in an urban environment, it is closely related to nature. In 2008, a fellowship from the Joan Mitchell Foundation allowed her to spend 4 weeks as artist in residence at the Vermont Studio Center. She returned to the city with a U-haul full of driftwood. Other materials for her work are sourced from hardware stores, the 99¢ store, bait and tackle shops, the fabric district or the McMaster catalogue. Her work has been included in numerous group shows in and around New York City. Most recently she presented a room full of sculptures, drawing and photography as part of the 2010 Governors Island Art Fair. She received her BFA from the Cooper Union and lessons for a lifetime from its sculpture shop.
Katherine Tzu-lan Mann received her BA from Brown University and MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art.
