Light in Line – work of Lisa Stinson and Tim Turner @ Claymakers Gallery
May 26 @ 1:00 pm – Jun 30 @ 6:00 pm

Artists Lisa Stinson and Tim Turner combine strengths in this two-person show. Stinson is exhibiting selections from several bodies of work, including illustrative pieces from her “Time Marking,” “Arabesque,” and “Textere” series. Hung as wall pieces, these works complement a collection of Turner’s functional pottery. Both artists prefer unassuming forms on which to work surface inflections and layer painterly glazes. Both often choose treatments that convey a sense of inner luminosity emerging through strata. A multi-part installation from the “Textere Series” – collaborative work by Stinson and her husband, glass artist Ken Carder (above) – seems almost a three-dimensional extraction of the intuitive, gestural linear decorations found throughout the show.

Loud Color Luminous Sound: Parasol B @ The Carrack
Jun 21 @ 11:00 am – Jun 24 @ 5:00 pm

Memo from the desk of Curator, Kerry Crocker:

Please join me in June for “Loud Color Luminous Sound”, an exhibit of interactive, colorful, noise-making skulpturs and assemblages which were rescued from imminent demise in the parallel timeline which we designate as Timethread “B”. Until recently these artwerks had been misplaced in storage since the time they were transported to my timethread, in late 1971. The artist signed these werks using the name “Parasol”. For the exhibit of these artefakts we will attribute the pieces to Parasol “B”. The artist states through the werk, clearly, that art should be touched, interacted with, played with, to be fully experienced.

Come visit to experience these werks and learn more about their history.

Presented by the TimeScience Alliance, Office of Artefakts

Open Thu-Sun 11am-5pm

Additional Events:
Friday, June 15, 6-9pm: Third Friday Durham Reception featuring HsawAknow beer by Bull City Burger & Brewery

Don’t Dress for Dinner @ Raleigh Little Theatre
Jun 21 @ 8:00 pm – Jun 24 @ 3:00 pm

“Don’t Dress for Dinner” (Comedy), by Marc Camoletti.

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, while his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a Cordon Bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights and has invited his best friend, Robert, along to provide the alibi. It’s foolproof. What could possibly go wrong? Well… Suppose Robert turns up, not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers and consequently determined that Jacqueline will not leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook must pretend to be the mistress, and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi is confused with everyone else’s. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.
