Plundering the Bank and the Sacred

If you and your buddy pulled a heist and need a place to hide the cash, you'd better pray for a dead relative. That's the way robbers Dennis and Hal play it in Loot by Joe Orton. The two men stash their spoils in Mom's coffin. Director Aaron Worley says the dark comedy, which first premiered in 1965, sparkles with snappy wit that still draws laughs from modern audiences. Toss in a gold-digging nurse, a corrupt inspector and a cadaver that keeps popping up around the house, and a fortune of farce unfolds.

Dragon Artist Flies Again

Thanks, person whose signature I can’t make out

It was back at the end of June that a mystery artist created a 50+ foot NeverEnding Story-esque beast on the plastic wrap that masks the Anasazi building’s lower parts. It was beautiful, but I pass the intersection everyday. The piece stayed up so long that I got used to it. I don’t really know when it got washed away, but only looked up one afternoon and it was gone.

Poet Life

The unshaven, messy-haired guy hunched over a desk, scribbling madly, bottle of booze at his elbowit's a popular, romanticized image of a writer. Hemingway? Kerouac? Some cultivate this persona, and the monthly Poetry and Beer event even packages two of its hallmarks for you. But these things do fit nicely, whether you’re writing, reading or just listening. David Rowe, departing New Orleans on his Unsolicited Poetry Tour, fills the guest slot at P&B tonight at the Blackbird. Rowe has a bit of a reputation for upholding the hard-living poet standard, as well as being a melodious, meticulous wordsmith. To hear his gravely voice reading one of his poems, visit bit.ly/RoweLoveSupreme.

Art From Unconsciousness

In the Jungian theory of psychiatry, the anima is the female element or inner personality in the collective unconscious, and the manifestation of feminine attributes in men. It is also the title of Archer Dougherty’s solo show opening at Stranger Factory on Friday. In Anima she focuses what she calls her “pop surrealistic visions” around strong female themes. She says the characters she portrays are poised somewhere in limbo between childhood and the adult world, trying to tackle internal demons and outside influences. Figures of women surrounded by bright colors, theatrical details and whimsicaland somehow ominouscreatures mark her work.

Talisman group show reception Friday Aug. 26

More than 18 artists are exhibiting at Cellar Door Gifts & Gallery, as part of the group show Talisman. Curated by Kris Mills, the pieces are the artists’ responses to the idea of a talismanan item that influences or motivates one’s actions or thoughts. Some offerings are grotesquely humorous, others intricately whimsical. This manifestation of work is only in the gallery until Aug. 31, so get in there and see it, perhaps during the show’s reception on Friday, from 8 to 10 p.m. You can eat snacks and feast your eyes at the same time.
