Where's Art: Trauma Queen and Surface Displacements
The Halloween season will soon be in the rearview mirror, but that doesn't mean we can't find something to scratch that eerie itch.
Emily Koch's exhibition Trauma Queen opens this Friday from 5-8pm at the Kruk gallery on the UWS campus. Get ready for some bloody images and creative visual art presentations. "There is a version of a pillow fort... room-sized," says Annie Dugan. "There is a melting birthday cake made [with] both synthetic plastic and projections." The exhibition is presented alongside work by recent UWS graduates entitled After the Walk.
And for something to ween you away from Halloween, this Sunday, November 6th from 3-6pm, the Nordic Center hosts an exhibition, book celebration, reception, and artist talk titled Surface Displacements. The event focuses on the book release for Sheila Packa's new poetry collection as well as the quilt-work of Leslie Hughes. "I think it'll be really interesting to see the cross-section between the poetry of Packa and the quilts of Hughes," says Dugan. Music will be provided by Sarah Pajunen and other community musicians.
