We are in the middle of a huge week o’ stuff happening here in Charleston, but tonight and tomorrow night, there’s some cool things in which you can zero on.
Tonight it’s the Streetworks Art Auction at the former Kyle Furniture Showroom on Hansford Street. Twenty five bucks gets you in the door to cram your face with food and guzzle booze while bidding on the original art that will someday adorn a series of metal frames with revolving panels on the East End of Charleston. You can find full details in last Friday’s PopCulteer and see my finished piece in Monday Monring Art.
Tomorrow evening I will be part of the “Pop Goes The Weasel” art exhibit at Apartment Earth, located in the alley between Hale and Capitol Streets. This really cool exhibit, curated by Nik Botkin, is an invitational art show with the theme of pop culture from the last several decades spanning from cartoons to movies to music and everything in between. Featured artists will include not only local talent, but also creatives from as far away as New Jersey, Chicago and more.You can also read about it and see my works, which will be for sale, in Monday Morning Art.
Wednesday night, Jackknife Stilleto, an all-girl punk trio from New York will be performing cover-free at The Empty Glass, starting at 10 PM. Sample their music in this video and go see them and buy merch and stuff. It’s really cool that The Empty Glass is treating us to a diverse assortment of touring bands, mixed in with the cool local stuff that they bring us on a regular basis.
Thursday night is also ArtWalk in Downtown Charleston. The FestivALL edition of ArtWalk is always special. Your PopCulteer will be anchored at Apartment Earth for the duration, so you should get out and see it for yourself, since there won’t be a photo essay for ArtWalk this month. It starts at 5 PM and runs all over the Downtown area.
