October 27th and 28th, 11am-6pm
Opening Reception Friday night from 6-8pm with beverages and snacks. And Saturday and Sunday we will be open both days from 11am till 6pm.
On May 16th, fresh sheets of paint were installed at Truesilver Gallery (also the home of Heather + Charlie Villyard.) on the wall, from the ceiling, off the wall and draped over sawhorses. Over the course of nearly 2 months, these “fresh” paint sheets, stitched together only by their own sticky-ness, have evolved, melted, stretched, torn, expired.
We hope you can join us for what I like to consider the Ribbon Cutting, but really there is no ribbon. There is no grand opening either. Instead, a special closing celebration in which guests can witness and participate in the dismantling and repurposing of the lengthy stretches of paint sheets by hole punching them into confetti, a celebratory material.
5pm Cocktail hour with Confetti Punch (for drinking)
6pm “Ribbon Cutting”
6:30-8pm Punching Paint (into confetti)
8pm Weigh your paint confetti pile for a chance to win!

Destry Rides Again, Again
Information: Destry Rides Again, Again takes the form of two tableaux vivants adapted from the 1939 Marlene Dietrich film “Destry Rides Again”, a western in which it is unclear if we’re in 1870, 1939, Texas, Hollywood, or a nightclub. Tableaux were a popular form of 19th century parlor entertainment, largely replaced by cinema. For this piece, we combine Dietrich’s 1930′s cabaret, a 1870′s Texas saloon, and stage it in a 2012 parlor.
Instead of physically wrestling one another (as in the abstracted scene from the movie) the actors will be fighting gravity, time, and fatigue by holding their mid-brawl positions for as long as they can.
Emily Auble & Miriam Jones
What do you want?: Visions in H.D.
Information: Placing architecture, objects, and the silver screen in conversation with the poem “Tribute to the Angels” by poet H.D., Miriam and Emily invite you to contemplate the space between desire and reality, reality and image, and all the in betweens where we find ourselves questioning our perception.
