When her favorite barista is kidnapped by these ethereal enemies, Beck must journey down a path from which there is no turning back. Whimsical, sinister, and profound, Midlife is a meditation on the terror of change. World Premiere. June 1-26, 2016

Opening Reception of FISSURAL | Solo exhibition by Alex Schechter
7PM 10PM
Terrault Contemporary
1515 Guilford Ave, Baltimore
Join us for the opening reception of ‘Fissural’ by Alex Schechter in conjunction with Alloverstreet. This is also Terrault’s very last exhibition in the Copy Cat before we move! Come say goodbye to us!
Fissural is an exploration of boundaries. Whether physical, temporal or political, these works examine the arbitrary divisions in natural landscapes. Drawing inspiration from political boundaries in the American West, these abstracted landscapes are carved from stacked and laminated wood. Their hills, grooves and valleys mimicking the tumult of the state where Schecter was born. For him, they are intuitive miniaturization of the landscape of his youth, burnished terrains split byarbitrary lines. They are breaking and are broken. They are cared for. Their divisions point to loss, to empty space, but also to connection. The schism is the thing that holds them together, transitioning them from isolated forms to a connected group.
Exhibition Runs: June 3rd – June 25th
Gallery Hours: Saturdays 1-5pm

The theme is colors and bubbles. Dress as bright, loud, and sparkly as you can, and bring bubbles! Bubble guns are strongly encouraged if you have them because of how easy they are to use on the move, but I will also bring bottles, trays, and wands for you to use. We’ll also have mobile refill stations and music to keep us pumped up!
Other things that are encouraged to bring include dogs, hula hoops, ribbon wands, and other fun things you can easily do while walking. Wear silly mouse ears, a clown costume, whatever you want! This is a safe space to be weird and bust out those neon fishnets, headband boppers, and tutus you’re not sure where to wear.
The pace will be slow, it’s just for fun! Let’s spread happiness to the people around us. All ages are welcome. Please share this event and invite your friends.
