The Calgary Arts Development folks are inviting Calgarians to join in the conversation at their Arts Champions Congress event on Thursday, September 29. The full-day — and free — event is designed to spark a collaborative approach and dialogue about expanding the arts sector in the city.
There’s no shortage of mesmerizing visual arts exhibitions in the city and the Untitled Arts Society is presenting an ongoing exhibit in the Plus-15 Window at the Epcor Centre. A Device to Assist in the Divination of Incidence by Steven Cottingham (try saying that twice really fast) runs until October 30 and represents the artist’s take on symbolism and the variances of meaning.
For a little more skin — oh, we love these girls — check out the Garter Girls Burly-Q Review burlesque show at Lolita’s Lounge on Friday, September 30. Always saucy, the girls know how to turn up the heat on a fall night — even with all those lame Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) rules.
For theatre, there are a lot of plays to choose from as it’s the start of a promising season, but be sure not to miss the silly but fun Peril in Paris at Lunchbox Theatre, running until October 15. The show is by Ethan Cole and Eric Rose and features the popular Jamie Konchak.
You know what else is going on this week? Alberta Arts Days. The annual celebration of the arts means the city has a wide range of events taking place from September 30 to October 2, and the list can be found at http://culture.alberta.ca/artsdays.
With so much going on, don’t forget to find time for the Calgary International Film Festival to get some much needed rest, two hours at a time.
