visionary comfort, multi-dimensional, heart love experiences

Fuzz is an art show by new friends and old friends from central Virginia and elsewhere.

The show will include an oversize screen-printed pillow fort. In addition to the handcrafted works on display, there will be a merchandise table with homemade books, clothing and frills!

Throughout the exhibit, there will be a series of special events, including a piñata-making workshop, music shows, kite-flying and more.

Fuzz Calendar of Events:

May 2 – Opening Reception – 6 to 10 PM – Featuring cupcakes, a live musical performance by psychedelic-folk duo Anahita (featuring Tara from Fursaxa and Helena from Espers) and fuzz-folk band The Great White Jenkins from Richmond, VA. Music begins at 8 pm.

May 4 – Puppet Show – 4 PM – A delightful performance by Sean Purl Samoheyl, an artist from Louisa, VA. Sean makes whimsical puppets from cardboard and magic markers. Musical accompaniment by Super Daughter and Kayde.

May 15 – Pinata-making Workshop – 7 to 9 PM – Kristin Smith, an artist from Williamsburg, VA, leads a workshop on making pinatas. The piñata is a brightly colored paper-mache container, often shaped as an animal and filled with treats. Participants will get to make their own pinata and take home a how-to zine.

May 17 – Screen-printing Party – 1 to 4 PM – Thomas Dean and Travis Robertson screen print your shirt or hoodie or whatever for free. Thomas and Travis talk about their printing methods and styles at 1 pm. Thomas’ shirts are seen on awesome peeps up and down the East Coast. Travis was an integral part of The Drama, a now-defunct arts quarterly. Hands down, these are two of the best printers out of central Virginia. Friends from Space 1026 will be printing, too!

May 24 – Music Performance – 8 PM – Tickley Feather (Paw-Tracks) and Colin from USAisamonster (Load Records) perform. Tickley Feather grew up in central Virginia and now makes her home in Philly.
