Join us a Blink Gallery this Sunday for potluck, watermelon and performances by Karina Bergmans (1pm) and Helen Lefebvre (2:30pm). I will be facilitating the world's longest hopscotch. Wear your whites, ride your bike and get ready to play!
This weekend join us at Blink Gallery for our Tenth Anniversary Party, celebrating a decade of presentations and conversations in contemporary art! The fun begins with our Season Opener and Catalog launch, on June 11 from 6-10.
On the walls we have a collection of works by Blink Members past and present and a host of former guest artists. Prints will also be available for sale. DJ Michael Caffrey will supply the beats from a collection culled from years of digging through used records.
If you are less of night owl, the Sunday Picnic takes place June 14, 12-3pm (weather permitting). Ride Your Bike, Wear Your Whites. Bring a picnic lunch and share some of ours. Children can participate in collaborative chalk drawing while eating copious amounts of watermelon. Hélène Lefebvre will perform a piece specially created for the event and Karina Bergmans will perform “Lymph Nymph”.

Thank you to Subdevision, and my coworker at the Department of Collective Trauma Emily Pearlman, and our two faithful interns, for a very rewarding experience. As a result of jury deliberations, and thanks to an embattled applicant whose sister announced she was pregnant on the day she finished her PHD, the department has chosen to elevate Stolen Thunder Day, to the calendar this year.
