Labor Day Weekend in SoHa Colorado

Image
While the hot days – daze – are still with us, the kids are back in school and thoughts jump forward to annual Fall arts and crafts fairs, symphony, theater , chorale, art, culture, a new round of exhibits at the South Suburban Rec Centers (Lone Tree, Buck, and Goodson), and of course, football. And, everything in between.

SMIRK at Lone Tree Arts Center Sunday 9/15

Image
Reid and Warren are fantastic. I had the privilege of interviewing Warren for my book Suggestion Please: Denver’s Secret Improv Culture, when he dabbling in improv performance and hosting to enhance his ability as a juggler. He’s a very neat down to earth guy and a great performer. Go see him! – Pam Roth O’Mara


The official description: “Physical comedian Reid Belstock and innovative juggling ace Warren Hammond have teamed up to bring you their hilarious and incredible show for all ages, Smirk!

Garnering comparisons to Abbot and Costello, maniacal goofball Reed and straight edge Warren, are a matched pair of performers with a deep bag of tricks whose juggling and slapstick antics explode off the stage. Their work has earned them multiple awards, including the 2009, and more recently the 2011 IJA Silver Medal in the Team competitions.”
When: Sunday, September 15, 2013
Where: Main Stage, Lone Tree Arts Center, Lone Tree
Good to Know: Good family fun
Cost: $15

10th Annual Painted Violin Exhibit Features Artist Tom Sarmo

Image
The Annual Painted Violin Exhibit  raises funds for the Denver Young Artists Orchestra. Artist portfolios are reviewed by a panel of artists, gallery representatives, and art lovers. Local, regional, and nationally-renown artists donate their time and talent to create original works of art using a retired, unplayable violin as a blank canvas on which to create a work in their own distinctive styles. These unique, one-of-a kind works of art will be displayed throughout the community in art galleries, restaurants, and performing arts venues, beginning with an exhibit opening and ending with the annual Painted Violin Gala.

This year SoHa Artist Tom Sarmo’s rendition is part of the collection. Stay tuned for details about availability and dates.

Good to Know: Proceeds from Painted Violin Exhibit raffle tickets, live auction, posters and greeting cards benefit the Denver Young Artists Orchestra Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Federal Tax ID #84-0809348.
