A Soldier Of Stars' Closing Party And Musical Performance says
Join us this Friday, February 24, 7-9 p.m., for A Soldier of Stars' closing party with live musical performances by p20, Boteh-J, and GJo and their special guest.

In his current solo exhibition A Soldier of Stars, Hamtramck based American-Lebanese artist George Rahme presents a memorial to self, the working class, bucolic environments, and factory landscapes.

Pocket size bottles of an artisan crafted herbal mix tagged Soldier of Stars Elixir, made in collaboration with Hedgewitch Holistics, sits next to a silk and wool blend wall piece that upholds a massive multi-carpus flaring spot. A three hour looped video of the artist cutting is projected right above. As a yogi, Rahme’s care towards consistency and stillness is present in his intricate and timely crafted techniques. Through extensive hours of meditative cutting, gluing, sawing, and listening to the sound of the Detroit, he cuts space out of factory images to retain memories. The carefully cut sparkles of welding marks juxtaposed on fabrics reminisce memories of factory workers and owners alike.
