Creative Life in the Gateway Arts District
Join Daniel Burkholder and the PlayGround at Joe’s Movement Emporium for a creative placemaking workshop. You will be able to participate in some of the creative exercises The PlayGround has been using to create and develop Acts of Arriving. This will include visual arts, writing, and, of course, moving. Come and participate as much as you’d like, or hang out a watch as they perform excerpts from the whole work. You can stay for 10 minutes or 2 hours – it is up to you.
Please join us as we re-launch Zimstone Gallery at the Gateway Arts Center. The Masters of Zimbabwean stone carving (Shona) speak of listening to the stone. As the great Sylvester Mubayi says, “The stones talk to me!” On display will be “peaceful”works from the early masters, established mid-career carvers and the up and coming. We look forward to having you join us as we embark upon this journey.
Art Works Now and Joe’s Movement Emporium will be providing some activities for kids in the afternoon, along with steel drums from Pan Masters Steel Orchestra. Local music from Marc Blackwood and colleagues fromInnerLoop later in the evening, local brew all day long from Frannklin’s Brewery and home brewers. Come help celebrate and create the new Red Dirt Studio! MAKE DONATION.
The Knockbox Stringband are an acoustic guitar, violin, mandolin trio that blend together Appalachian roots music with jazz, swing, and New-England folk. As John Bright, owner of the music venue, The Purple Fiddle puts, “Come see one of the world’s most renowned jazz violinists (Zach Brock) team up with the best songwriter (Rebecca Wudarski) that West Virginia has to offer!”
