    Raw Paw Gallery: Notes From a Windowless Room

    "These paintings," says Nadia Waheed, "are an effort to form a bridge between my Pakistani heritage and my westernization, primarily by exploring the brown female nude." Several large works by Waheed adorn the delightful Raw Paw space over there in the Yard on St. Elmo, and – tell you what – if every creative "effort" were as well-wrought and lovely to behold as these paintings, the whole world would be a better place to have eyes in.
    Reception: Fri., Feb. 15, 7pm-12mid

    Lardo Weeping

    This is LOLA's workshop premiere of a chamber opera based on the legendary show by Terry Galloway, featuring a libretto by Galloway and an original score by Peter Stopschinski. The production stars mezzo-soprano Liz Cass as Dinah LaFarge, a "rather large, intellectual, quite sexual woman of independent means who seldom ventures outside her apartment and refuses to answer her door unarmed." Oh, this'll be some kind of a thing, all right!
