Culture on the Cheap
THIS WEEK: Mordred’s Mom, Sock Monkeys & Tequila
There are a couple of rather nifty art events scheduled for this Thursday I simply must pass along. Here they are.
Many of you are familiar with Mordred the Greenpoint chihuahua. Well, it should hardly surprise you to learn that her “person”, Jocelyn Shipley, is an artist. What’s more, she’s having an opening for her show The Secret Life of Sculpture this Thursday, June 5, at Canada Gallery from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
55 Christie Street
New York, New York 10002
Next up, the very same evening fresh art will be throwing their annual fund raiser, Fiesta Mexicana, at Gallery HAI in SoHo. Tickets are a little pricey ($50.00 per person) but you get a lot of bang for your buck. Among the things promised are:
Fun, Silent Auction, Food, Art Exhibition, Dancing by Calpulli Mexican Dace Company, Live Music, Beer; Wine, Tequila, y mucho mas!
Naturally a vast assortment of sock monkeys will be offered for sale as well.
