Create & Destroy: Terra Temporalis
Artist Gabrielle Senza’s large drawing, “Terra Temporalis,” adorns one wall of BMAC’s Wolf Kahn & Emily Mason Gallery, part of the exhibit Bridging Earth & Sky. At this dramatic performance-art event, Senza will paint over her drawing, restoring the gallery wall to white.
Joining Senza for the occasion is award-winning playwright and environmental activist Kathryn Blume, who will perform her short one-woman show, “Coming to Town,” about a small Vermont community whose tranquility is unintentionally — and hilariously — upended when a world-famous philanthropist and his wife move to a beloved old farm and set up shop. Told from the perspective of an underemployed real estate agent and a beleaguered town planner, “Coming to Town” wraps myth, magic, and small-town politics into an entertaining tale of surprising global relevance.
Senza, Blume, and Dr. Rebecca Jones, owner of Brattleboro’s Elliot Street Cafe, which will provide complimentary refreshments at the event, are all volunteers with 350.org, an international grassroots organization founded in 2008 by Vermont’s Bill McKibben, whose mission is to solve the climate crisis.
Admission: $10 ($5 for BMAC members). Proceeds split between BMAC and 350.org.
