Puppet Slamwich Tomorrow!!

If you are in Baltimore and looking for something to do this Saturday night, on the early end or later (there will be TWO SHOWS!) consider heading down to SoWeBo (the free circulator bus stops right around the corner!) to Black Cherry Puppet Theater for our 4th Puppet Slamwich featuring a brand new beautiful shadow puppet cranky by Katherine Fahey of 2 Hawks 2 Fishes and new tales from Sherrywood Forrest by artist Kevin Sherry of Squidfire fame! More Info Below!

Black Cherry’s puppet slam series, Puppet Slamwich! returns with a new show on Saturday, June 18, 2011. THERE WILL BE TWO SHOWS!!! 7pm and 9:30pm! Tickets are $7. Advance ticket sales are available NOW online at: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/181238

June’s Puppet Slamwich delivers up a succulent stack of folksy performances! Baltimore’s Kathy Fahey premiers her latest shadow puppet show “Elizabeth Whitmore” (pictured) on the old time cranky with live accompaniment! Kevin Sherry serves up new tales from “Sherrywood Forest”, full of mischief and mayhem. Mika Eubanks presents variations on an ancient trickster tale, while sheriffs and outlaws duel in Miranda Pfeiffer’s animation, “Food for the Worms”. Jen Liu’s ukulele tribute to American popular tune “Frankie and Johnny” makes clear why hell hath no fury like a puppet scorned!

NOT TO BE MISSED!!! Tell your friends!!

the windy city

I just got returned home this evening from a five day jaunt to Chicago to see two of my dear old friends. (See all the pics on Flickr!) It has been quite some time since we were all in the same place at the same time, and boy-oh-boy was it nice to be with those ladies again! It was also my first time traveling to the windy city, and I loved every minute of it.

I got to visit an awe inspiring Baha'i temple and pick seashells and crab claws on the beach. I walked through the great gleaming halls of the Art Institute and toured the fiber facilities at SAIC (ah, to be back in school again!), including my buddy's studio. We ate tons of yummy vegetarian grub and worked it all off at many hot yoga classes...peaked in the adorable Renegade Handmade shop and tried on hats at Goorin Bros....watched Werner Herzog's Cave of Forgotten Dreams (in 3-D!!!) and lounged on blankets in Millennium Park for a free concert, drinking wine and people watching.

It was so refreshing to get away, relax with my gals and meet their friends, i miss them already! Today its back to work, slowly but surely, with Pile of Craft less then two weeks away and a long list of other business to attend to! Starting.....right.....now!
