Bari Ziperstein at Art Palace

Artist Bari Ziperstein discusses For Display Purposes Only currently on view at Art Palace, Houston. This is the first video created exclusively for Keep Houston Rich.  I hope you enjoy it!

From an interview with LipstickTracez:

“The works begs the question at what point do the possessions we use to mark our identity and decorate our lives end up becoming a burden? When does our stuff consume us?”

Elixir of Love at the Houston Grand Opera

This is the last weekend for the Houston Grand Opera’s 09-10 season starter, Elixir of Love. From their site:

“Donizetti’s sweet love story, THE ELIXIR OF LOVE is at Houston Grand Opera from Oct 23 to Nov 7, 2009 www.HoustonGrandOpera.org/ElixirofLove

This sparkling folktale is one of Donizettis most popular operas. Lovesick Nemorino falls madly in love with the young landowner Adina knowing well that she is out of his league. Luckily, the scheming Dr. Dulcamara has just the cure to what ails him. Russian soprano Ekaterina Siurina sings the minx Adina and John Osborn is Nemorino. Internationally renowned Italian bass-baritone Alessandro Corbelli plays Dr. Dulcamara, and Liam Bonner is the flamboyant Sergeant Belcore. Directed by Annabel Arden, this delightful production takes place in a rustic Italian town square.”

Second Seating

Tonight at Second Seating in the East End, “Carolyn Casey is bringing hundreds of LED ‘throwie’ lights and we’ll toss these tiny lights on the building to create a one night light show. Don’t miss this!”

Second Seating the Exhibition is scheduled to close this weekend. Make sure to get out there and support this venture before its too late.
