The Brew House Association, 2100 Mary Street on South Side, will be hosting "The Annual Brew House Member Exhibition and Open Studio Tour" on Saturday, Aug. 15, from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m.
The exhibition and open house is presented on behalf of the members and residents of the Brew House and the Brew House Gallery and Performance Task Forces. Admission is free to all attending.
The Gallery and Performance Task Forces have assembled an evening itinerary with a member exhibition, open studios, musical performances, acrobatics, strange stunts, and interstitial goings-on.
The evening's events will begin at 7 p.m. with the opening of the member exhibition in Space 101 Gallery. Refreshments and light fare will be provided. Concurrently, individual artist studios will be open to the public while musicians from the Eclectic Laboratory Chamber Orchestra play live music in various locations of the building.
At 8 p.m. in the Brew House Theater, the Eclectic Laboratory Chamber Orchestra will present 30 minutes of improvised music based on the poem, Wheel of Earthly Life by Tadashi, accompanied by improvisational dance by Tadashi, a reading of the poem, and real-time painting by artist Rachna Rajen.
At 9:45 p.m. in the Brew House Theater, trapeze artist Erin Carey from Zany Umbrella Circus will perform. At 10 p.m., the Brew House members present "Lucky, the Pain-Proof Man," who will be displaying his talents as a performance artist, painter, sculptor and special effects craftsman.
This show will transport all back to a time when the world was a much more mysterious and creepy place. (While this show is extremely entertaining and not to miss, parental discretion is advised.)
At 10:30 p.m., Darrell Workman will be presenting a performance of his sound and light installations using circuit bent synthesizers, analog television sets, and various other electronic devices.
