EVERYONE SHOULD TRY AND GO TO THIS IT SOUNDS PRETTY AWESOME!!!!! Material Girls: Contemporary Black Women Artists February 12, 2011 to October 16, 2011 at Reginald F. Lewis Museum
Curated by Dr. Michelle Joan Wilkinson, the museum’s director of collections and exhibitions, Material Girls celebrates accomplished women artists whose sculptures, installations and mixed-media assemblages incorporate both traditional and unexpected art-making materials. Using hair, beads, tissue paper, rubber tires, plastic and other materials, the artists craft provocative forms and intricate surfaces that play on unique cultural meanings, personal memories and social agendas.
This sounds like fun! Kind of pricey but there should be cocktails!
BIG Body Painting Improv Party!
Sat Jan 22, 8pm show, 7pm bodypainting & cocktails.
We are turning up the heat at The Patterson as BIG invites body painters Ursula Esser, Toby Verhines, and Patricia Tamariz to show off their human canvases. As part of BIG's improv adventures! BIG troupe 'Gus' uses painted works as puppets in a stunning visual display, and BIG troupe 'Lekker' works with volunteer models (maybe you!) in "The Wall" as painted bodies become props and environment. Come at 7 for a bodypainting demonstration in the gallery for the cocktail hour $15, $10 mbrs.
