Watertown art studio Room 83 Spring is hosting an exhibition featuring the work of one artist, who has produced a film featuring dance as well as a photography exhibit.
The show, up in the air, features the work of Margaret Wiss, a young, bright, emerging star, according to Room 83 Spring founders and co-curators Ellen Wineberg and Cathleen Daley.
The show can be seen by coming into the studio, or from outside.
“The whole show can be seen through our windows and is especially vivid in the deep dark winter nights,” Wineberg and Daley said in the show’s announcement.
Room 83 Spring is located at 83 Spring St. in Watertown Square and is open on Thursdays and Saturdays, or appointment.

Room 83 Spring is pleased to present up in the air a dance-film and photo journal by recent Tisch MFA grad, areacodeArtFair participant, and founder of Xsection Film Festival, Margaret Wiss, January 2 – February 13.
The performing arts community and its audiences have been enormously impacted by the pandemic and Wiss as a dancer in isolation rises to the challenge of finding continuity, creation, and meaning through a daily outdoor practice.
The film entitled …to be continued is a visual meditation, a continuum. A work-in-process begun March 21, 2020, the movement sequences confront the constants and variables of place and time in film and photo excerpts. Wiss’ solitary figure slowly and reverently communing with the ever-changing landscape is complimented by the spare and evocative piano composition of Mike Brun. The repeated ritual, sensual as it is restrained, solitary as it is connected, is a panorama of resilience and hope. A sequence of 259 days with a running time of 25 minutes and counting . . .
Visit our website for more information and a Virtual View. The large-scale projection of Wiss’s film …to be continue (https://vimeo.com/476964097) is best viewed after dusk. Pull your car up in front of Room 83 Spring and enjoy a drive-in visit. Additionally, a monitor with the film running continuously is in our window to be viewed at anytime.
Open Thursdays and Saturdays by appointment or by chance.
