Good Company Arts: Line Dances
A new live show/experience. A cast of world class Cirque du Soleil artists interact with animation, video projection, lasers, illusions and puppetry. A gothic fairytale from future history set in an alternate reality and told through the unbridled imagination and creativity of a child.
Word is that some members of Asha and hipSwitch troupes will be performing at the Knitting Factory honoring World AIDS Day. It will be a carnival extravaganza, so check it out and support the community.
OMG! Last night I had the extreme pleasure of attending the class with Debby Lammam at Achieve Fitness – her new digs, and had a marvelous time! Debby has trained with, and carries on Suhaila Salimpour’s technique building skills & prowess into her classes. It was literally and figuratively Kick Ass!
Classes are Tuesday nights, 7:30 – 9:00 pm – ACHIEVE Fitness Studios, 600 S Center Street, Reno.
One of my favorite artists is mixed-media assemblage artist Kris Kuksi for his amazingly meticulous and detailed sculptures. I first discovered him in 2008, and have been following his artistic commentary since. I love his art! – Just learned about, and pre-ordered his book “Divination and Delusion” that will be released next month.
Cannot wait to pour through its pages.
November 15 through the 21st is White Ribbon Campaign week for Northern Nevada.
“wearing a white ribbon is a personal pledge to never commit, condone, or remain silent about violence against women.”
:: Betty Blythe (September 1, 1893 – April 7, 1972) was an American actress best known for her dramatic roles in exotic silent films such as The Queen of Sheba (1921).
The first time I watched Mira perform live she was wearing a cream colored costume head-to-toe which, canvassed against her alabaster skin, lent her an ethereal other-worldly quality that made me catch my breath. That she’s lusciously curvy and not rail thin is also a big bonus. The performances that I’ve seen have always been perfection, as her technique is oh so glorious.
Tommy Shearer is a man I admire profoundly and immeasurably, who is a gifted metal artist and expressionist painter. He and and 12 other local artists will be creating large scale paintings this Saturday in a fundraiser called “Art by the Inch” where literally the works will be sold for a $1.00 an inch to benefit Homeless Children in Transition; a Washoe County School District Program. All the artist are donating their time and materials to the project in the hopes of raising their collective goal of $6000 to benefit 2000 kids this year. This is the program’s 4th Annual fundraising event and the need even greater. Here’s a short capture of last year’s successful event and copy of their flyer with all the deets.
:: Thank you Tommy, I’ll see you there!
