Norwegian rock legend Gudny Aspaas to launch her new album in Oslo on April 5 at the Rockefeller Music Hall

OSLO, Norway, 07-Jan-2017 — /EPR ENTERTAINMENT NEWS/ — Tickets for the concert are now on sale, and can be ordered through www.gudnyaspaas.com which also features samples from “No Stranger”. The concert will also feature tracks from Gudny’s back catalog.

“The concert and album are the culmination of several months of work – and I’m thrilled with how “No Stranger” has turned out,” said Gudny. “I was lucky to work with some incredibly talented musicians and a wonderful team, and the result is, I think, the best work I’ve ever produced. I’m really looking forward to being back on stage, and I can’t wait for people to hear the new album in April.”

“No Stranger” is representative of the eclecticism of Gudny’s extensive career in music, with all of her – and her musicians’ – many talents represented in tracks such as the vocally complex “Galactic Child” (which allows her to show off her distinctive voice) through the eloquent piano/vocal piece “Hello Again” to the classic rock ‘n’ roll of “You Can Run”. From haunting simplicity to wall of sound, “No Stranger” fully demonstrates the breadth and depth of Gudny’s musical genius and her pioneering versatility as a composer and performer.

Gudny represented Norway four times in the Eurovision Song Contest, and fronted iconic progressive rock group Ruphus in the 1970s, returning for a reunion in the 1990s and again in 2010 – also at the Rockefeller Music Hall. Ruphus’s “New Born Day” was voted as one of the top 50 best Norwegian albums ever made. She has also released numerous solo singles and albums.

Originally from Meråker but now living in Oslo, Gudny comes from a musical family in which almost every member could play an instrument. Singing shyly for her family from the age of four, she and three friends formed “The Singing Goats” at the age of 12, supporting their vocals with guitars and tambourine. Having won a music competition, she released her first single in 1969.

Gudny is also a supremely talented creative artist, working mainly in silver jewellery. She graduated from the Statens Kunst og Håndverksskole (State Academy of Craft and Art Industry) and now has her “Silverland” gallery/workshop in the centre of Oslo near the Slottsparken.

Sculptor Carole A. Feuerman’s Larger-than-Life Sculpture Comes to Life in SoHo

Mana Contemporary¹s resident artist Carole Feuerman will be exhibiting this summer with NYC Parks and Recreation. Her monumental work, “Survival of Serena”, will be showcased for the first time in hyper-realistically painted bronze, courtesy of Jim Kempner Fine Art.

The sculpture will be on view to the public May 21st through September 23rd in Petrosino Square, SoHo in the triangular median near Spring Street and along Lafayette. We invite you to join us on Sunday, May 20th at 12:30pm for a special unveiling event at the park with a reception and artist talk to follow at Jim Kempner Fine Art where refreshments will be served.

Keep an eye out for Mana Contemporary¹s trucks adorned with photos of this magnificent sculpture circulating the city. Starting this May, Feuerman will also have a brand new print series celebrating this iconic sculpture.

Carole A. Feuerman was born in Hartford Connecticut but has lived and worked in New York her entire life. Known for her hyperrealistic sculptures of swimmers and bathers, Feuerman’s prolific career spans four decades and across a variety of media including bronze, resin and marble. “Survival of Serena” is the first of a series of new monumental painted bronze sculptures by the artist.

“Survival of Serena” first debuted in painted resin at the 2007 Venice Biennale and was named in honor of the traditional name of Venice, La Serenissima, which literally means ‘the most/very serene¹, a theme which transverses much of the artist¹s body of work. The sculpture went on to win first prize in the Beijing Biennale the following year. In her art, Feuerman strives to find the common thread that unites us as people, one and the same. With the culturally dynamic location of the park, Feuerman sees Petrosino Square as the perfect location to unveil her new bronze sculpture for the first time.

Here, one can find recluse from the trafficked streets and sidewalks of New York City. Feuerman works to achieve a similar effect in her sculpture by capturing peaceful moments that are universally appealing. In the midst of the fast-paced city streets, she wants to offer the public the opportunity to pause, even just for a moment, engaged and inspired by what stands before them. Her sculptures exceed the bounds of mere mimicry to become larger than life symbols that invite us to consider our physicality and our own stories. Feuerman strives to find the common thread that unites us as people, one and the same.
