Meet the printmakers
Uptown worker and emerging artist Susannah Bielak was recently awarded a Jerome Emerging Printmakers’ Residency with CARAG’s Highpoint Center for Printmaking. Catch some of Bielak’s works — Uptown-inspired monoprints — and meet the artist at the opening reception for the "Jerome Emerging Printmakers’ Exhibition" Friday, Jan. 23, 6-9 p.m. Residency winners Colin Gatling and Sara Langworthy will also be in attendance, along with their prints, paintings and installation-based works.
The free exhibit itself runs through March 3. Highpoint is located at 2638 Lyndale Ave. S., and gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information, call 871-1326.
Long before that other Minnesota Lang could even say "guitar," Fulton native and almost-life-long resident Peter Lang was picking up a Grammy nomination for his 1976 album "Lycurgus."
Known for his finger-style guitar playing, Lang has toured and recorded with other famous "pickers," such as John Fahey and Leo Kottke.
Lang took a 20-year hiatus beginning in 1981 and then returned in 2001 with the release of "Dharma Blues." Now he has released a new CD, "Guitar."
These and Lang’s older albums are available at Amazon.com for $15.99; for more information, contact Horus Records at firstname.lastname@example.org.
‘The Great Pork Comes to Bologna’
"The Great Pork" is coming to Bologna, and Galumph Theater is coming to East Isles to tell Southwest residents about it.
In this original production, Galumph promises an evening of slapstick physical comedy, colorful costumes and familiar archetypes in the characters of Arlecchino, Pantalone and Colombina. Loosely based on "shtick from the 17th century," this production pulls its comedy from the techniques of the Commedia dell’Arte.
Shows are Fridays and Saturdays thru February, 7:30 p.m. at Grace Trinity Community Church, 1430 W. 28th St. Tickets are $8 for kids under 12, $16 for adults and $14 for seniors. Reservations are recommended. For more information, call 729-4933 Ext. 10 or visit www.galumph.org.
"Hysteria," the newest show at Lowry Hill East’s Soo Visual Arts Center, 2640 Lyndale Ave. S., focuses on "obsession, repetition and personal reality." The show features several different Minneapolis artists’ works, including David Harmlow’s "Friend’s Portrait Project" — over a hundred portraits drawn on carbon copy paper — and Nicole Russell’s photographic series on different people’s daily medication. . . artistically arranged, of course.
The show runs Jan. 26-March 21. Check out the artists’ works and find out a little more about the gallery at www.soovac.org.
