Bring a bright tangle of the wild outside
deep into your soul by viewing this new exhibition of paintings from florapsychedelic artist Valerie Fowler
, the woman who bends pigments to brilliantly warped realist effect
and conjures forests that speak parseltongue to all that's serpentine in human memory. Also, Fowler will be performing three separate "crankie" shows, wherein she scrolls through a 30-foot-long narrative drawing accompanied by live music written and performed by Brian Beattie
and preceded by writer Robin Chotzinoff
's response to the artwork. Note that you've got to RSVP for those crankie performances, as the joint will likely be packed
, OK? See website for details.
Crankie show: Thu., Sept. 26, 6pm
