Concerned that there aren’t enough puppets in the art world? Well quell those fears, because artist Tom Sarver is working in cooperation with the Irma Freeman Center for Imagination to bring you the “Lascaux to Garfield” Art Salon and Puppet Happening.
With creative innovation and a fervor for fun and funky approaches to art, Sarver has gathered small works by 50 local artists to present a salon style art show. Following the art show will be a different kind of creative exhibiton–a late night Puppet Happening Cabaret! Art works by local artists + a late night puppet caberet =a quirky Pittsburgh art scene that promises to entertain and inspire!
- Gallery Reception: Friday, Dec. 2 from 6:00-10:00 PM
- Puppet Performance: Friday, Dec. 2 from 11:00 PM to midnight.
- Daytime Gallery Reception: Saturday, Dec. 3 from noon until 5:00 PM.
Viewing unique works from a long list of talented individuals, followed by live puppet performances sounds like a truly one-of-a-kind way to spend this Friday night. Artworks can be purchased directly from the salon, and a portion of the proceeds will go towards funding a Puppet Happening Festival in 2012. The gallery reception and puppet show will take place at the Irma Freeman Center in Garfield. Irma Freeman Center for Imagination supports local arts and community-based creative projects. It is located on 5006 Penn Avenue, 15224.
