Art Happenings Here, There and Elsewhere

"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt. And poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen."

At the Red Mug Coffeehouse

There are some arts-related events of note today and ahead. First off, this month's featured artist at The Red Mug in Superior is Adam McCauley whose opening reception is tonight from 5-7 p.m. That owner Suzanne Johnson always turns these opening receptions into exceptional events is a given. That tonight's opening will be even more exceptional is worth noting as Gene LaFond and Miss Amy Ann will be performing. Don't miss it.

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf

This classic play by Edward Albee was famously brought to the silver screen by Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Dennis Kempton has assembled a strong cast for a six night run at Teatro Zuccone, beginning tonight. Albee's story of George and Martha, Nick and Honey is no "Ozzie and Harriet." At the center of the story is a troubled marriage, and the games people play. The mix of high drama and wicked humor is unforgettable. Full schedule of performance dates here.

BALANCE at the 111 Minna

Light Orange by Chor Boogie
The Bay Area art scene is as vibrant as any you'll find anywhere. San Francisco has a fabulous art district with great galleries featuring work of all kinds. The city boasts exceptional art museums as well. When you think SF don't just think of the narrow streets, Chinatown and Alcatraz. Think art. There's plenty to see.

Tomorrow night is the opening reception at the 111 Minna Gallery for a show featuring new work by prolific muralists Chor Boogie and Jet Martinez. There will be an avant-gard burlesque performance by Bast, Lila Bezzani and Lady Eternal Love. Curator Micah LeBrun composed “Balance” as a showcase of the artists’ stunning use of color and to demonstrate the depth of their techniques. It's a progressive gallery striving to maintain its reputation as cutting edge,

Time: 5 p.m. till late.  Show runs through January 3, 2015.
