“With pencils, I shoot poetry. And, lately, I've been feeling like a warrior-tree-butterfly — quiet and vulnerable — with roots growing furiously from the rage of living a dictatorship.” 
— Adrian Arias
Please join us for the opening reception of Adrian Arias's exhibition of Angeles en Tiempos de Dictadura/Angels in Times of a Dictatorship.

Adrian works in poetry, visual arts, and cultural promotion; sometimes recycling to make art, sometimes creating something that is not recyclable. He is a creator of altars, video-poems, and perfo-poems. His work has shown in Europe and the Americas.

Following the Opening Reception, there will be a performance that will respond to the art work by Arias. The performance will feature a group of incredible musicians including Erica Zappia (viola), Abi Shiman (violin), James Jaffe (cello), Schuyler Karr (bass), Ruthie Dineen (piano), Mia Pixley (cello and vocals), and Tiffany Austin (vocals).

All are welcome to stay for the performance. We will be accepting donations for the musicians but no one is obligated to leave a donation. We will transition at about 7:00pm to set up chairs for the performance. 

Opening Reception: Sunday, February 19, 5:17pm-7:00pm
Performance begins at 7:30pm
Exhibition Dates: Sunday, February 19, 2017 - Tuesday, April 25, 2017
