GOArts is short for Georgia Open Arts Month which takes place each October.
It's a collective campaign to raise awareness about arts in our area.

Last October, I took up a challenge to see 31 shows in 31 days and blog about it... in the end, I saw 41.
Sure, it was a bit tiring but it was also an amazing opportunity.

The column on the left is a linked schedule of everything I saw.
For a more logical read of this blog o'adventures, scroll down to the first entry and start reading there.

I'm not a reviewer, nor am I an art critic.
I aim to raise public awareness about the great tapestry of arts & culture in our area and inspire you to get out there and enjoy it.

Ask (Events #16 and #17)

Thursday night I was asked questions at both events I attended.  TATS: the experience lets us know up front that we shouldn’t make assumptions about one’s motives for having tattoos.  The performance revolves around questions and Mattie, the central character of the piece, leaves us where we began with the question, "So, what do you want to know?" 

Earlier in the evening, I attended a Salon hosted by Several Dancers Core in their studio.   D. Patton White led the salon first with video footage of CORE Performance Company's recent in situ work and then company members performed excerpts of that ongoing work.  Patton asked all of us in attendance specific questions regarding the imagery in the video and sought additional input.  The next Salon will be November 12.  Both the Salon and Lunchtime in the Studio (on-going for 10 years, now) are free and open to anyone who is interested in sharing their impressions of the work-in-progress with the company.

And the food... oh yeah, Pharm House catered the food for SDC's Salon and it was delicious.  The grilled veggies were great.


  1. Thanks for coming to the Salon, Keif! Just a quick correction, the next Lunchtime in the Studio and Salon date is November 12, not 11.

  2. Thanks, Claire. I've changed the blog entry from the 11th to the 12th. I hope to see you then.
