A Fistful of Flowers by Even Moritz Creative Alliance at the Patterson September 3 8:00pm - 10:30pm $5-10
Baltimore Annex Theater's new play A Fistful of Flowers takes the western genre and bends, reshapes and queers the old format into a genre all its own. This play follows two contemporary cowboys, who are ex lovers, as they chase each other around the desert trying to kill each other. The play is populated by the traditional western characters and non-traditional absurdist characters while the future mixes with the past. TNT is detonated via an iPhone app. A man takes violent revenge for a bad Darth Vader tattoo. Desert cacti are animate characters. The landscape comes alive with invented and real imagery that is as psychedelic as it is everyday. Intermittently, gender roles are reversed to lend broader depth to the main characters' search for what it means to be a man... a real man (a woman).

For his show of new works at the Wind Up space, Andrew Liang made 130 new painting on shaped panels of varying sizes, hanging them to fill the entire long wall of the bar / gallery. Priced affordably from $10 - $75, it was an all out race at the opening for everyone to own their favorite pieces. Some of us did not luck out:
My favorites! Red-dotted on arrival...

In an effort to both perpetuate the discussion of gender roles in the arts and to disclose the artist-as-male stereotype, curator Eli Walker was asked to bring together a show that consisted entirely of male artists. Without falling for the hackneyed tropes of ironic, sensitive-male aesthetic nor the passive aggressive, faux-naiveté dude art; the work was chosen from artists’ studios made over the last year as a true representation of their practice. This approach lends itself to investigate what it means to be a male artist today. Are men levied upon their Modernist counterparts after the wake of Post-Modernism? Has the long, evolving Feminist Movement liberated them from patriarchal form like photography did for painting? Is gender as definable as it once was now that we have a progressive understanding of sexual identity and gender association? Tough Guy proposes these questions by exhibiting a cross examination of 20 contemporary male artists and their individual interests.
The Sub Basement Gallery is a for profit exhibition space run by resident artist Jeffery Kent.
