Multi-Media Installation deconstructing the creative process of playwright Mike Gorman

The exhibition takes one on a dramatic journey of discovery through the playwright’s world as he unearths the layers of the production history of his epic cycle of plays that plumb the depths of addiction and recovery in the commercial fishing industry. This exhibit is in conjunction with If Colorado Had An Ocean presented in our First Floor Theatre.

Featuring: text, video and testimonials by Mike Gorman, painting and sculpture by Gregory De La Haba, graphic art by Bob Demetrius, installation art by Marguerite White and set models and elements by Donald Eastman.  December 12-13 & 19-20: Live performances of three dramatic monologues from the trilogy, with musical accompaniment.

La MaMa Galleria


Founded in 1984, La Galleria is a nonprofit gallery committed to nurturing experimentation in the visual arts. La Galleria encourages an active dialogue between new media, performance, the plastic and visual arts, curatorial projects, and educational initiatives. It serves the East Village community by offering diverse programming to an inter-generational audience, and expanding the parameters of a traditional gallery space. As a non-profit, La Galleria is able to provide artists and curators with unique exhibition opportunities that are largely out of reach in a commercial gallery setting.
