Conceptually and formally urban and rural spaces speak in distinct and familiar visual codes and styles. Betwixt and between what one would consider a proper rustic scene, such as an expanse of valley, snow-peaked mountain ranges, or a cluster of cattle, there exist border towns, metaphorical spaces, where a factory looks quite at home on the prairie or the effects of industrial drilling can appear to be acts of beautification. In these real and metaphorical locales, in this clash of cultures Lucas Foglia presents vivid scenes of an American West that is experiencing social, physical and interpretative transformations. Foglia’s series Frontcountry in particular reveals structures, networks, and communities that share and occupy intersectional spaces in which dislocation, industrialization, migration, land use, and shifting cultural identities change expectations and notions of town and country.

Ihad the pleasure to meet with Columbus, Ohio native Cory Michael Smith at The Norwood Club on 14th Street in New York City, “a home for the curious” according to its online vision statement.  That could mean so many different things, but for me, “curiosity” centered on this young, up-and-coming actor who seems to be on the fast track to fame. With the same nerdy manic energy of Edward Nygma, his character he plays on Fox’s Gotham, he rushed in wearing a gray jacket, a buttoned-up striped shirt, and matching gray slacks short enough to show that he wasn’t wearing socks with his brown dress shoes. 

As he sat down, he apologized for being overdressed and explained that he was going to a business meeting with a couple of buddies who were presenting an app that they had created. While he had nothing to do with the app, he was going to support his friends, as they’re shy and he’s —well, he’s an actor. An actor, who, in just the past couple years, has worked with some of film’s big names including Frances McDormand, Cate Blanchett, and Rooney Mara. 

It was easy to fall into a conversation with this chill guy, who like me is from the Midwest, shares a love of theater, and studied both acting and music. This actor’s actor is enjoying a career with divergent roles that range from the “good intentioned,” comic book character turned murderer in Gotham to playing the tortured, suicidal Kevin in last year’s Emmy nominated miniseries Olive Kitteridge.
