The Basement Gallery is hosting “Play the Knave” this Thursday February 23rd, 2017.
Play the Knave is a motion capture video game that allows players to design and perform scenes from Shakespeare’s plays. The game engages users in dramatic production, helping them understand and enjoy a Shakespeare play through the act of staging it. Users can customize their scene ( selecting script, avatars, and theater space) and perform it karaoke-style, by reading the lines on screen. This is no ordinary karaoke experience, however.
The Basement Gallery is accepting submissions via email for “She Persisted: The Art of Protest.” The deadline for submissions is midnight Feb. 26. The exhibition is scheduled to open Mar. 8
Continuing the momentum of the recent and hugely successful international Women’s March, the Basement Gallery hosts a show honoring protest and resistance. This exhibition is an International Women’s Day Art Show.
“Who Is U.S?” explores and honors the diverse identities of artists in America. This timely exhibition opens on Inauguration Day, Friday, Jan. 20 at 7 p.m. in the Basement Gallery on the lower level of the Art Building. The exhibition is free and open to all.
The Davis Art Salon is a contest for the local art community created and hosted by the Art History Club.
Here is how it goes….
As a club we choose a theme for the salon-style show.
We advertise and receive submissions from the local community.
We put together a show of around 15 artists.
The local art community votes for their favorite piece.
The winner gets a two-week solo show organized by the club.
We start all over again next quarter!
